Spring Cleaning Bedroom Checklist

Spring is almost here!  Finally, the mornings are getting lighter and the days are getting longer.  It is the perfect time to clean and reimagine your space.  Our spring-cleaning checklist will help breathe new life into your bedroom leaving it feeling fresh and clean.

Tidy up and Declutter

Our bedrooms are supposed to be a peaceful, relaxing space where we can unwind after a long day.  Unfortunately,  bedrooms can quickly become a cluttered mess.  Grab your supplies and let's declutter.

  • Garbage Bags: Go through your room and throw away the obvious trash.  
  • Laundry Hamper:  Gather your dirty laundry and put it in the hamper.  Refold and hang any clean laundry that has been left out. 
  • Tidy-up:  Scan your room for misplaced items and put them back where they belong.  This is a perfect time to start a donation bin for any items that you don’t use anymore. 
  • Strip the bed:  Remove your bedding, leaving only the mattress and pillows.

Deep Clean

Now that your bedroom is decluttered the deep clean can begin.  Depending on the state of your bedroom this process could take a couple of hours or longer so plan accordingly. 

  • Dust: wipe down the walls, floorboards, wall décor, light fixtures/ceiling fans, flat surfaces, and decorative décor items.
  • Window coverings:  Take down your curtains and clean according to the care instructions.  Wipe down any blinds, wash the windowsill and clean the inside/outside of your windows. 
  • Furniture:  Using an appropriate cleaner clean your bedroom furniture, and mirrors. 
  • Flooring:  For hard floors dust and mop, vacuum and shampoo your carpets. Don’t forget to pull your bed out and clean behind and under the bed. 
  • Clean your pillows:  It is recommended that you clean your pillows every 6 months or quarterly. 
  • Wash your mattress:  Overtime your mattress can collect dirt, dead skin, dust mites, and pet dander.  It is important to regularly clean your mattress, especially if you suffer from allergies. 
  1. Strip the bedding off  and wash it.
  2. Using your vacuums upholstery attachment vacuum the sides and surface of your mattress. 
  3. Spot clean with stain remover
  4. Sprinkle baking soda all over the mattress and vacuum again
  5. Rotate your mattress.

Organize your Closet

Organizing your closet may seem like a daunting task, but we promise it will be worth it. 

  • Separate your clothing: Separate your clothes into categories like coats, jackets, tops, pants, dresses, and accessories.  As you organize your clothing only keep the ones you wear with frequency and toss the rest in the donation bin. 
  • Hangers:  Try to use coordinating hangers.  Nothing can make a closet appear disorganized and chaotic than a collection of mix matched hangers.  
  • Stack bulky items:  Bulky sweaters and jeans take up a lot of space. By neatly stacking these items you will free up valuable drawer and hanging space 
  • Keep your most used clothes front and center:  Make sure that the clothes you regularly wear are stored at eye level and are easily accessible.

Create an Inviting Bed

Replace your linens:  Pack away the heavy blankets, flannel, and dark colors and replace them with bright, airy bedding. 

  • Sheets:  Swap out those flannel sheets for a more breathable fabric.  Cotton bed sheets are a bedding must have for the warmer months ahead.Cotton percale sheets are crisp and cool, while cotton sateen is cool and silky smooth.  Microfiber sheets are also another great option, a good quality microfiber sheets set is buttery soft and moisture wicking so that you don't wake feeling clammy.   Before buying your new sheet sets be sure to measure your mattress depth, that way you’ll know if you need standard fitted sheets or extra deep pockets
  • Top of bed: Swapping out your bedding is the easiest way to give your room a fresh new look.  Replace your heavy duty winter duvet with a nice lighter weight duvet/comforter and cover it with a bright and cheerful duvet cover. We also suggest keeping a lightweight quilt at the bottom of your bed (for the cooler spring night's)
  • Accessories: Dress up your bed by swapping out your throw pillow covers and adding a classy bed skirt.
