A clean, tidy bedroom makes for a happy homeowner. Along with making your bed each morning, we have created five simple ways you can tidy up your bedroom. Let’s take a look!

Double-Duty

Let your nightstand do some work in your bedroom by using a small dresser as a stand. The dresser creates a brilliant solution for keeping your room tidy and neat. You can store all of your necessities right next to your bed, and you will have easy access. Be sure to purchase a small dresser that will work well as a nightstand. You want to still be able to reach your alarm clock and cell phone on the dresser’s surface. Also, if you are looking for a consistent look, you will want to buy identical dressers for each side of your bed. This will help tie the look together and gives you extra storage.

The Purge

The best way to “tidy up” a space is by going through everything you own. Now, this process may take a couple of days or even weeks. But once you have gone through everything, you will want to sort it into different piles. The general rule of thumb is that if you have not used it in a year, you do not need it. Try and keep this in mind while going through your items that you need to purge. Odds are that you will find a bunch of things that you do not remember owning. Once you have sorted through everything, be sure to donate your gently-used items.

Clear off Countertops

Countertops can be one of the leading causes of clutter. To eliminate clutter and tidy up, remove everything from your countertops. Try and limit yourself to three items per countertop. For example, your television stand may have a television, a remote, and a DVD player. Your nightstand dresser may have a vase of flowers, your alarm clock, and a picture. By limiting yourself, you will feel begin to feel less cluttered.

The Great Divide

Drawer dividers can be an excellent solution for organizing your space. Try adding them inside of your dressers for extra organization and less clutter.

Stick to a Schedule

After you have organized your room, you will want to stick to a cleaning schedule. This will set you and your spouse up for success. Be sure to make your bed each morning so that you come home to a clean room each day. Also, you will want to make a weekly cleaning and laundry schedule to help you stay tidy!

End your cleaning on a fresh note by adding a couple drops of your favorite essential oil into a diffuser. The refreshing scents will help promote a healthy and happy lifestyle and mood.

 

How to Make The Master Bedroom of Your Dreams

The master bedroom holds a special place in a homeowner’s heart; shouldn’t its design too? With our top five tips, we hope to help you create the master bedroom of your dreams. Let’s get started!

Five Ways to Make The Master Bedroom of Your Dreams:

Start Fresh.

Before you begin designing, we want you to step into your room with a fresh pair of eyes. Come into the bedroom as if it was your first time entering it. With a fresh outlook, you may be able to see things that you have never noticed. This is a fantastic opportunity to rethink your current design and try something new.

Rearrange.

After you have taken a good look at your room, you may have noticed some things that you want to change. Rearranging your furniture can be a great first step. With a rearrangement, you always want to be aware of the room’s “focal point.” What piece of the room are you trying to bring attention to in the design? Once you have decided on your focal point, you will want to build the design from there. If you feel like you are struggling, it may help to remove all of your furniture from the room and bring it back in one by one.

Embrace a New Color.

Seasons are changing and so is your design. Now is the time to embrace a new color choice for your room. It may be something as simple as your accent color, but it is time to change. If you need inspiration, take a look at some color swatches from a local paint store. Experiment with different hues, shades, and values before you commit.

Simplicity is Key.

A master bedroom is a place for relaxation and tranquility, and an overwhelming design will not accomplish this concept. To help make sure your focus stays on track, we recommend keeping it simple. The simplicity of your bedroom’s design can help to establish a clean working board and a stress-free environment.

Dress it up.

Lastly, it is time to accessorize. A few light decor pieces can transform your master bedroom into the oasis of your dreams. Try to go light with the decor at first then slowly build from there. You can always add more accessories later.
