5 simple steps to declutter your bedroom

Here are five simple steps you can follow to declutter your bedroom and create a calm and inviting space.

Start with your mattress topper

If you own a mattress topper, there’s a good chance it’s full of dust mites, which can trigger allergies and asthma. To clean it, simply remove it from your bed and vacuum it on both sides. If it’s washable, machine-wash it in hot water. You can find out more about mattress toppers here. Now, you’d want to proceed with making the whole of your bed. This gives you a sense of accomplishment and sets the tone for the rest of the task. 

Start by stripping off the sheets and blankets and giving them a good wash. Finally, add some fresh pillows and linens to give your bed a fresh look and feel.

Next, take a look at your furniture

If you have too much furniture crammed into your room, it can make the space feel smaller and more cluttered. Consider whether you need all the pieces in your room or if some could be removed or replaced with smaller alternatives.

Declutter your closet

Get rid of any clothing you no longer wear or don’t fit well. Donate items in good condition to a local charity or consignment shop, and file away out-of-season clothing so it’s out of sight and out of mind. Consider investing in storage containers or shelves to organize your remaining clothing better for maximum efficiency.

Find a place for everything

This means having a designated spot for every item in your room, whether in a dresser drawer, closet, or bed. Having a place for everything will help to prevent clutter from building up in the future.

Finally, take a look around the room and identify any other areas that need attention

There may be a pile of books on your nightstand that need to be put away or photos that need to be hung on the wall. Whatever it is, spend a few minutes taking care of those little tasks to enjoy a clutter-free bedroom worthy of a magazine spread!
