A bedroom is a room in a home that should provide us with peace and quiet, which is necessary for a good night’s sleep and restfulness. We simply can’t relax and unwind after a long hard day if our bedroom is in chaos or mess, and that can severely affect the quality of our sleep. So, keeping our bedroom neat and tidy is not just a matter of aesthetics – it also has to do with our mental and physical health. However, some people struggle to clean their bedroom and maintain it neat efficiently. Luckily, there are some useful tips that can help you with that. For starters, you should get rid of all the trash and clutter. You should also change the bedding regularly as well as put away both dirty and clean clothes. Keeping all the surfaces in the bedroom clean and wiped is also essential for a healthy, dust-free environment – that includes nightstands, tables, windows, mirrors and the floor. Take a look at these tips in detail to learn how to clean your room quickly and efficiently.
1. Get rid of trash and clutter
Tip number one that will ensure a neat bedroom is to get rid of any trash and clutter. Trash tends to build up in the bedroom, so you should perhaps get a small waste bin, which you should empty on a regular basis. As for the clutter, you should also clear that out. Take into consideration all the things that you keep in your bedroom and toss out all the items that you don’t use, that are unnecessary or malfunctioning. Try to organize all the other things and make sure that everything has its place.
2. Change the bedding regularly
The bed is the single most essential feature of a bedroom. It should be spacious and comfortable enough. In order to get quality sleep, you should make sure that you use high-quality sheets for ultimate comfort. There’s nothing better than laying in a nice smelling, soft and comfy bed. You should wash the sheets, bedding, pillowcases, duvet covers and blankets every week as well as remove the mattress protector and vacuum the mattress every now and then, to ensure a grime-free bed. Besides this, you should make sure that you make your bed every morning – it takes you a few minutes and it does wonders for the bedroom appeal. The room instantly looks better with this simple chore.
3. Put away dirty and clean clothes
Both dirty and clean clothes tend to pile up during the week. You should try to put it away every day or if you can’t, then at least once a week. The easiest thing to do is to just throw dirty clothes on the floor. However, we should make an effort to place them where they belong, in the hamper. Having dirty clothes laying all around the floor makes your bedroom look chaotic and messy. As for the clean clothes, make sure to fold them and put them away as soon as you get them out of the dryer. In that way, you can avoid procrastinating with this chore.
4. Dust and wipe the surfaces
We also tend to pile up things on dressers and nightstands, as well as any other convenient surfaces. This is something we should also try to avoid, or at least put away from time to time. This is beneficial for multiple reasons. First, it makes your room look more organized. Second, it’s easier for you to clean these surfaces without any clutter on them. And third, in this way you avoid piling up dust and debris, which can irritate your breathing.
5. Keep mirrors and windows clean
Keeping windows and mirrors in the bedroom clean is also essential for maintaining order in the bedroom. Smudges and scratches on windows can only disrupt your view and impede natural light coming from outside. Make sure that you keep them clean with an appropriate streak-free window cleaner and a soft cloth. Do the same with mirrors as well as glass-paneled doors, if you have any in the bedroom. Your bedroom should breathe cleanliness and freshness.
6. Vacuum the floor
It’s simply not possible to have a perfect bedroom, without vacuuming the floor. If you have hardwood floors, make sure to sweep them every week and vacuum any rugs that you have. Don’t forget to mop the floor as well. On the other hand, if you have a carpet, keep it clean by vacuuming it regularly. Whatever method that you use, make sure that you include those places that are hard to reach as well, including under the bed and other furniture.
These simple and useful tips can help you in maintaining your bedroom clean, organized as well as neat every day.
