Before you start moving things around in your room, spend some time to mark out the walking space that you can ideally have. Make it achievable because the last thing you want is to stare at your room and wonder if that was a good decision.
So think a little bit harder for this one.

If you are familiar with Marie Kondo, you would have read her book, cover to cover, and got sold on her tips to tidy and organise your space.
Decluttering is essential when it comes to making space, because if what comes in doesn't get out, you can only get more space by hacking down the walls and enlarging your room. So pick up that garbage back, go through that pile of stuff you've got.
But how would you make a decision on what to discard? Ask yourself, "Will I still need/use this in the next 5 years?" If your answer is no, that will be a green light to trash it.
