Best Ways to Make Your Bedroom Better

Clean Up

The #1 way to make your bedroom look better is to clean it up! Make the bed, dust, vacuum. Put your dirty clothes in the hamper and put all clean clothes in your closet or dresser. Don’t forget to wash the sheets while you’re at it!

Keep it clean by spending 5 minutes each day doing a quick clean. Remember, it’s easier to keep something clean rather than clean it once it’s dirty. Spending that 5 minutes a day goes a long way toward keeping the overall appearance much nicer than before. That doesn’t mean you’ll never have to do a deep clean, but by keeping up with the cleaning, the need for a deep clean will be rare.

Declutter

Declutter causes stress. It can be paralyzing. I know it is for me. It’s overwhelming to look at all the clutter piled up and scattered around your home. Where do you even start?  Luckily, we know exactly where to start (the bedroom).

Add Throw Pillows

Sprucing up your bed can take $20 and a quick trip to the store. For a plain or neutral bedroom, add a pop of color. Be bold in your choice! For a room with lots of colors or patterns, opt for neutral colored throw pillows.

Pay attention to texture! Consider choosing several pillows in different textures.

For a bigger change, splurge on a new bedspread and higher quality sheets. You won’t regret it!

Add a Rug

Adding a rug over a hardwood floor can be an eye catching change. A rug over carpet can make it feel even cozier. Either will transform the feel of your room. Try an extra soft or shaggy rug for a feel-good texture.

This shag rug is from Amazon. I have personally purchased two of these are they feel so great. You’ll want to walk on them barefoot all day.

Wayfair.com offers over 10,000 rugs to choose from. You can also find cheap but quality options by Amazon or Target.

Fresh Cut Flowers

The finishing touch! Whether it’s a single flower or several large bouquets, flowers make your room feel more lively.

  1. Probably the best tip I have is to *eliminate flat surfaces* if you’re like me & tend to pile things – papers, clothes, whatever – on any available flat surfaces. I either make the surfaces very small or inconveniently out of reach. 😊

    1. Never thought of that one! Funny because as I read this I looked over at my dresser and all of the things I put on it just last night! Snacks, laptop, drink… better go clean it…
