We are talking about the cleaner side of things!! How to make your bedroom look like that perfect picture you saw in the Better Homes & Garden magazine or on that awesome post on Pinterest? Easily! Simply make your bed up every day and the magic will happen. Can it be that simple? YES! Clients always ask me what can they buy that will help them organize their bedrooms or make them look better. My first and easiest solution is to ALWAYS make your bed once you get out of it. And boy if you could see some of the looks of confusion I get because no one believes me! I tell them to do a few test runs over a two week period as most have to adjust their morning schedules a bit to make this work, especially if you have a spouse or significant other who does not get out of bed at the same time as you (adjustments can be made). The act of making your bed will actually motivate you to straighten your room and over the long run keep it as neat as possible. How? When you walk into your room and see that your bed is made, it makes you feel good to see a major item in your room looking neat which gives the appearance and feel of cleanliness and this leads to the feeling that the entire room should be like this.
Once the bed is made, you can focus on the nightstands, dresser, that stand/chair in the corner that seems to catch everything you throw at it, even under the bed will get some attention. Who knows, you may even venture to finally go through your closet!
As with anything I recommend to my clients, always make a list or notes of what you would like the room to look like or how things can be rearranged. This helps to cut down on frustrations and helps with keeping you focused on the task at hand which should be keeping and making your room look neat and clean. Give this simple challenge a try as a part of your New Year’s Resolution and you will be amazed at how you MAGICALLY transformed your bedroom into the relaxing zone it was meant to be! When you give it a try, be sure to leave us any comments on how things are going and we would love to see some before and after pictures.
