Your bedroom is where you go to relax and reboot. It's also the room in your house with the most exposure to dust, bacteria, allergens, and other nasties. Clutter and chaos can cause anxiety, stress, and affect the quality of your sleep. Keeping your room clean and organized can help you feel relaxed and improve the quality of your sleep.
I know what you're thinking. You want to make your bedroom clean, but you don’t know where to start! Well, we've got some tips for you so you can enjoy all the benefits of a clean and tidy bedroom!
Get a small wastebasket
for your bedroom. Take the trash out regularly and keep extra bags at the bottom of the basket to save time. West Elm has all kinds of baskets to choose from that will complement the style of your bedroom nicely.
Get a hamper
for your dirty clothes and if you have enough space, put it in your closet. Get in the habit of putting all your dirty clothes in the hamper. This will declutter your bedroom and make it feel tidy.
Get hypoallergenic bed sheets
to fight against dust mites. Our beautiful, microfiber bed sheets come in various colors and sizes. They are soft, quality sheets, with 1800 thread count. We offer sizes that no one else has, such as Split King, Split Top King, Upper Flex King, and Split Flex Top King, Split Top Queen, etc. They are the softest sheets you will ever sleep on.
Wash your bed sheets once a week.
Your sheets can accumulate a lot of things you don’t see, such as dead skin, dust, bacteria. So washing them once a week can help reduce allergies, skin rashes, asthma.
Air out your bed
for one hour every morning before making it. Dust mites thrive in warmth and moisture, and airing out your bed can help dry out your sheets.
Keep surfaces clutter free
Limit the number of items on your nightstands, dressers, desks, vanities. Get decorative bowls, jewelry boxes, trays, and book shelves for keys, jewelry, cosmetics, and books to help keep everything organized and neat.
Wipe down surfaces with natural ingredients
The easiest is white vinegar. It’s natural and eco-friendly. The acidic nature of vinegar is so powerful it can dissolve mineral deposit, dirt, grease, and grime. It's also strong enough to kill bacteria. If you have wood surfaces, Method Wood Cleaner is great!
Vacuum or sweep once a week (it only takes 5 minutes)
You'll be amazed at how much better it looks and smells. You might not think that dusting is going to make a difference in your life, but trust me on this one - it will! Not only will cleaning up clutter help with productivity, but it also improves the quality of air.
Clean homes and organized spaces are proven to reduce stress, improve happiness, and improve quality of sleep. So put on your favorite music, and get cleaning!
