It might not be your favorite chore, but you don't want your sleeping space to be a mess. Follow these steps to clean your bedroom.

Your bedroom is the first space you see when you wake up in the morning and the last you look at when you go to sleep at night, so when it’s a mess, it really affects you. But because it’s the only room that isn’t typically seen when guests came over, it’s pretty easy to neglect. Cleaning your room has probably been a dreaded chore since you were a kid, of course—but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a simple task once you have a system for it. But there’s a bit of “housekeeping” to take care of first: Before you even start to sweep, swipe, or wipe anything down, it’s crucial to declutter the space. Clearing off your surfaces—the dresser, nightstands, that corner chair buried in a pile of clothes you tried on before work this morning and rejected—makes it quicker and less cumbersome to clean because you’re not having to constantly stop to put that stuff away. (And let’s face it: Your bedroom really shouldn’t feel like a dumping ground anyway. It’s meant to be a restful oasis.) Read on for more clever tips and expert tricks that make it easy to straighten up—and scrub down—your sleep space.
