The flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping, and everything outside feels fresh and new. Spring is the perfect time to bring that feeling indoors and refresh your space with a little spring cleaning and organization. Because you spend at least one-third of your life on your mattress, your bedroom is the most used room in your house! A little spring cleaning in your bedroom can go a long way to help you sleep better each night. When your sleeping space is clean and organized, you can feel more relaxed and sleep more restfully. Here are some tips for freshening up your bedroom this spring!

Color

A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference. Lighter paint colors on the walls can make your space feel more open and bigger, while darker colors make the room feel more intimate and cozy. Choose natural, muted colors like grays, taupes, beiges, and whites to promote relaxation in your bedroom. If you don’t want to tackle a whole paint job, add pops of color through your decor. A new duvet cover or piece of art can freshen up your room and give it new life.

Organize

Your bedroom shouldn’t cause stress. Make sure everything in your room has a proper place. Eliminate clutter and keep everything accessible to eliminate that early morning frantic rush. Your bedroom should be your retreat from the stress of your everyday life, and keeping it organized will help you relax when it’s time to go to bed.

Back to the basics

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the most important part of your sleep is also the simplest: your bed. If your bed is not comfortable, you won’t be able to get a good night’s sleep. Make sure you replace your pillow every three years. Because there are so many different types of pillows, it’s important to try them out before you make a purchase. Don’t settle for cheaply made sheets. Shop around until you find a fabric and weave that works for you. You won’t regret an investment in good quality sheets. If your mattress hasn’t been replaced in the last 7 years, it’s time to think about getting a new one. Make sure to choose one with the proper support to make sure you can rest well each night.

Spring is the perfect time for a little bedroom spring cleaning to set the right environment for a good night’s sleep!
