6 Steps to a Stylish and Neat Bedroom
Enjoy a relaxing slumber with the help of these easy tips
We all want to go home to a relaxing home where we can simply lie down and rest after a long day. However, given our busy schedules, we often forget to organize the bedroom! How can we enjoy a good night's sleep if clothes are strewn all over the bed or if the vanity is full of clutter?
With just a few easy steps, you can achieve an organized bedroom where you can fully relax. Here are six steps to keep in mind:
Start with the bed. Remove the mattress and remove the dust from your bed's frame. You may also vacuum the mattress to remove the dust or air it out to reduce germs and allergens. It is important to vacuum the mattress at least every three months—especially if you have asthma or rhinitis.
Clear out your closet. Segregate your things into two piles: keep and donate—so you'll know which ones you'll return inside the cabinet. Use plastic containers to keep accessories and belts in place.
Wipe upholstered pieces. If you have a small couch or ottoman in your bedroom, clean it using a microfiber cloth.
Change your sheets and pillow covers. Change your soft furnishings every two weeks so you can enjoy a good night's sleep as well as to avoid allergies. Don't forget to fluff your pillows and turn your mattress over every four months to help even out the coils under your bed and to avoid slopes.
Fix your side table. Don't let books, decor, and chargers take over your side table. As much as possible, keep your alarm clock, mobile phone, a book, and a few decor pieces on top. Items that you don't use on a daily basis should be kept inside drawers.
Consider a new layout! If you've had the same layout for five years or more then it's the best time to rethink the layout of your room. Aside from moving your furniture around, you can also work on simple updates such as replacing your curtains, adding wall accents, or using new accessories.
