Top Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Bedroom

Published by:

It is that time of year again when we start considering our spring cleaning and I for one couldn’t be more excited! It is out with the old and in with the new, from our dusty cupboards to full carpet cleaning; you just have to get stuck in. With this in mind I thought I would offer you some top tips for spring cleaning your bedroom and starting afresh for the new year.

Keep your bed fresh and clean

We spend so much of our lives asleep that we often don’t realise just how long we have spent in them. Due to this I thought this would be a great place to start. Along with washing all bedding, a great place to start your spring cleaning is to look at your mattress and add in a mattress protector. Tempur mattress protectors are a great example of just how useful adding one to your room can be. They work in two ways; firstly they protect your actual mattress from dirt. A mattress protector is far easier to clean than a mattress itself, so this eliminates the need to clean your mattress. The second way is to help to protect you from dust and allergens that may well be on your mattress already. Easy to clean and helpful to – what could be better.


Organise your wardrobe to make your life easier

I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe always ends up full of unwanted clothing, bags and shoes, making it so much harder to find the items that I really need and love. Giving your bedroom a proper spring clean is the perfect time to get rid of all the old things that you simply no longer need. I am not suggesting you create yourself a capsule wardrobe, if you love your items then don’t throw them away, but buy sorting through it you will give yourself an easier wardrobe to manage. Once you have separated the clothing that you wish to keep, you can place the other items back, with your most used items at the front so getting dressed will be quicker and easier in the long run.

Create a different mood and gain the bedroom that you have always wanted

Spring time is the perfect opportunity to rearrange your bedroom and create the mood you have always wanted to. There are two ways you can achieve this during a spring clean. Firstly you can rearrange your furniture to face a different way, exchange furniture from other rooms or simply move just your bed. Let’s face it, we all get a little fed up with our decor after a few years, so this gives you the chance to change this. The second option is to add in new decorative items. Look at changing your style of bedding, curtains and soft furnishings with some that you really love. Add in items such as candles, maybe a dressing table of your dreams….the choices really are yours, but small changes can give you dramatic impacts.

Let the room have a sporty look. Add some sporting equipment like baseball or hockey sticks. You must be aware how thrilled the boys are by the mere mention of their sports. They would surely welcome such additions in their room at any time.

When it comes to style, that’s where you have to make a decision on your own, we all have different tastes and prefer different things. But if you ask me what kind of furniture is best for any room in your home, I will say you should choose wooden furniture any time you can.

There are many ways to include the models and pictures of the favorite sport of your boy. To keep alive his excitement you may throw pillows shaped like footballs or baseballs. Or consider having rugs incorporating some sporting equipment or even bedspreads with depictions of his favorite team. These are all interesting ideas for boys’ room as they are more inclined to sports and for good reason. Your boy may be in art and craft. Look for a suitable spot in the room to include and display some of his creations. It may be a good idea to have some hanging shelves for that propose. In any case shelves are needed in his room to take care of his collectibles like the medals and trophies he may win in his favorite sport and the books he may love to read.
