Insider asked two interior designers to share what sort of things they hate seeing in people’s bedrooms. One designer said that you should get rid of or move the extra pillows on your bed and the plants on your windowsills because they can add clutter to a space.
The experts also said that nightstands should be free of clutter and your walls shouldn’t have too many decorations. Get rid of those extra pillows on your bed.
Pillows are a great way to add dimension and texture to a bed, but too many of them can cause clutter, according to Jody Wallace, owner of and designer at
Greylyn Wayne Home Staging & Interior Design.
Plus, the more pillows you have the longer it will take you to make your bed, she added.
Wallace told Insider that, to keep your bed looking well-decorated but practical, you might want to stick with just three pillows since it will create a satisfying balance.
Remove any plants that are crowding your windowsills.
You’ll also want to get rid of any
excess plants, especially if you have many small ones in front of your window.
“Windowsills clutter quickly, so we recommend hanging small plants from the ceiling in a macrame swing to make more space,” Wallace told Insider.
She said she recommends you only keep two small plants or one large statement plant in your bedroom.
Lose the rugs that are too small for your space.
Keep the wall decorations to a minimum.
Decorative wall accents with kitschy themes or ironic phrases are one of the many things cluttering walls all over America,” Wallace told Insider. “When everything has a quote or phrase on it, our brains become overwhelmed with reading information and can’t focus on the most important motifs in the home.”
Wallace said it’s
best to keep your walls pretty simple by just hanging a few photos, mirrors, or sentimental items.
