Survey: Do You Keep 1 Messy Room in an Otherwise Tidy Home?

Survey: Do You Keep 1 Messy Room in an Otherwise Tidy Home?

For our professional organizing and redesign business we confront messiness on a very regular basis. Clients assume we are perfectly tidy in our own home. The truth is that we are particularly tidy in all of the rooms of our apartment until you step into....

The bedroom. We seem to act out our need to buck tidiness by frequently dumping our clothes instead of hanging them and rarely making the bed. Despite our efforts to the contrary we wait until the mess reaches a critical mass and then do a clean sweep. Not quite sure why it's the bedroom that suffers this syndrome in particular. And it seems to be a longstanding pattern - we reunited with a childhood friend this past weekend and she asked "how's your bedroom these days"?

How about you? Do you have your MESSY ROOM? Any thoughts on why that particular room is THE messy room? Do you aspire to change this phenomenon or accept it easily?
