A space in which we relax, unwind and get that all important rest, the bedroom is no different and should be refreshed with a ‘spring clean’ every so often to help you get the best night’s sleep.
Your bedroom should be a relaxing space where you can unwind from the day’s stresses and get the best night’s sleep possible. There are some key things you can do to ensure this is always the case.
- Clear the clutter
As life keeps us busy, it’s easy for our bedroom to become cluttered with clothes, books tech and other personal belongings. It’s easy to cover a sideboard, bedside or dressing table with bits and bobs like face cream, make-up, toiletries, books and more. Before you know it you’re surrounded by the clutter that makes the room feel busy, and not conducive to a relaxing environment.
Take a moment to clear surrounding surfaces and your floor and use this time to have a clear out, get rid of any clothes, toiletries and unwanted items. Make sure your bedroom offers generous storage for the items you want to keep, and neatly store them away whilst keeping them easy to access. Clearing and decluttering will instantly lighten the bedroom and leave a sense of calm.
- Opt for natural bedding
We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important to invest in a mattress and bedding that not only looks good, but feels good and provides a great night’s sleep too. To get the best from your sleep opt for natural materials with allergen resistance. As well as being better for the environment, natural materials offer many benefits to us too.
- Dust, sweep and do some general cleaning
This seems obvious, but its so helpful. If you take the time to dust off your dresser and shelves, it makes your bedroom seem so much better. Taking the few minutes to do some general cleaning will make your space feel so much cleaner!
- Embrace nature
Bring the outside in with house plants and fresh flowers. Many houseplants have air purifying properties, so introducing them into the bedroom will not only bring in a touch of greenery but will help to clean the air in your bedroom.
Fresh flowers on the bedside are beautiful to wake up to, but can bring with them a natural fragrance that is calming.
