How to spring clean your bedroom

18 Sep 2018 16:17:52

We spend a lot of time in our bedrooms. We sleep, read and relax, and every so often it’s nice to give it a good spruce up to ensure night time is as refreshing as possible. But how do you get the most from your spring clean? We’ve got a few tips to help you out.

The bed

You can wash most things on your bed – the duvet cover, sheets, under sheet – even the pillows. Start by stripping it down and washing everything on a hot cycle with a mild detergent. Remember that if you have sensitive skin, a non-biological washing powder is advisable as you have your face against the pillow cases. Steer clear of bleach products too, as they can discolour your linen.

If your pillows can be machine washed, pop them on a mild cycle with liquid detergent. You can then dry them with two tennis balls in the machine to fluff them up. Sounds odd, but it really works!

Creating the perfect guest room takes an eye for detail and a little home-spun magic. But if you fear you’re lacking in that department, don’t worry – we have some fantastic tips to ensure your guests will want for nothing.

The décor

The colour of a guest room has an impact on how relaxing it is for your guests. Choose a palette that is calming rather than stimulating – in other words, avoid bright yellows, reds and greens and instead choose soothing colours like greys, light blues and pale purples. Equally, if you’re wallpapering, pick a pattern that isn’t too busy. You can add accents here and there, but the overall feeling should be one of rest and relaxation.

How many times have you stayed in a hotel and wished you could make your bed at home look as great as your hotel bed does? It’s true there’s an art to making the perfect bed, but it’s not such a complex one that you can’t learn it with our little guide. So, it’s a pull out bed for your guest room that you want to look inviting or your own bed, follow our tips to create a beautifully made bed.

Achieving pristine corners

Well presented corners are the foundation of an excellently made bed. Called ‘hospital corners’, this method ensures the sheet stays taut and delivers an overall neat finish. This is the trickiest part of the whole bed-making process, but you’ll master it in no time.

The technique is the same whether you’re making up a fold up bed or a fixed bed. Tuck each end of the top sheet between the mattress and frame of the bed. Then take a piece of the sheet at the side and fold it over to form a 45-degree angle from the corner of the mattress. Holding this folded part firm, take the rest of the overhanging sheet and tuck it away below the mattress. Repeat this on the other side of the bed and hey presto! You have a beautifully taut sheet that looks inviting.
