How To Spring Clean Your Bedroom

How To Spring Clean Your Bedroom

How much do we love spring?!  Winter has figuratively and literally washed things away, and now we turn to the freshness of this lovely time of year. It’s no surprise that many of us want our personal spaces to feel in line with the season. Spring cleaning your bedroom is big business this time of year, and our OMF team shares top tips on getting this space feeling enlivened, brighter, cleansed and ready for the warm months ahead. 

1. Opt for hypoallergenic pillows and mattresses 

As much as we love it when these warmer days start to arrive, there can be a downside… Was that a sniffle or a sneeze we heard? If you suffer from any level of hay fever, you know how debilitating and relentless it can be. At best, you’re putting up with scratchy red eyes and the occasional sneeze. At worst, you’re left exhausted as your immune system fights a daily battle of itching, scratching, sneezing, wheezing and more. 

Home furnishings - and the dust and mites they inevitably trap - can play a role in dialling up or down allergies. As such, we’re huge fans of hypoallergenic pillows and mattresses, and spring is certainly an excellent time of year to consider getting rid of the old and welcoming in the new. For hygiene and physical support reasons, we recommend changing your pillow every  six months to a year or when it loses its natural shape. Aim to change your mattress every eight - 10 years or when it no longer provides the support you need for a good night’s sleep.  If you agree that now is the time to update, these products will have you feeling fresh and fabulous after every sleep:

Hi Life Natural Latex Pillow

We love the Hi Life Natural Latex Hypoallergenic Pillow for its quality and terrific value for money. The natural latex is not only lovely and luxurious, but it’s resistant to dust mites, which is a big tick for fresh, healthy spring night sleeping. Anti-bacterial, this pillow is ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers. Keep it in tip-top shape by simply removing the Tencel cover and machine wash. Leave it out in the sun for those cleansing rays to dry it clean (although you may also tumble dry). Available in two profiles (Medium and Deep), the Hi Life Natural Latex Pillow has a sensational five-year warranty.

A terrific ten-year warranty means you won’t need to consider replacing this beauty for many springs!

Bamboo mattress topper 

If now is not the right time to purchase an entirely new mattress, what about a bamboo mattress topper instead? This is a quick, easy and affordable way to get a mattress upgrade without actually having to buy a whole new mattress.

OK, it’s fair to say you’re now all sorted for spring when it comes to getting a great night’s sleep! But there are still plenty of other ideas you can consider to spring clean your bedroom. Let’s find out… 

Plants in your bedroom 

Nothing says alive and fresh quiet like, well, live fresh plants and flowers! Literally, bring spring indoors with pots of planted bounty or vases of just-cut blooms. Not only do these add a touch of natural colour, but they also bring bucket fulls of biophilic energy into your room. Green-leaved plants create oxygen, which is a primary ingredient to a healthy night’s sleep. Let Mother Nature do her bit to bring you some quality shut-eye, and invest in some indoor plants in the bedroom this spring. 

Steam clean carpets, rugs and curtains 

Give your bedroom a deep clean with a professional steam cleaner. We guarantee you’ll be shocked by the results - colours come alive, the air feels fresh, and you wonder why on Earth you didn’t do this sooner. This is a great spring cleaning move, particularly if you have fur friends who are allowed in the bedroom. Yes, it costs a pretty penny, but we believe the results - and the way you will feel - are worth it! 

Open up the bedroom windows 

Turn the heating off, open up the windows and let the fresh air and sunlight pour in. Again, Mother Nature can do wonders if you invite her to be a guest. In all fairness, opening the windows year-round, even just a small crack (provided it is safe), can work wonders for healthy sleep. However, this time of year, we’re fans of leaving the windows wide open (provided you have a fly screen, of course!) all day and night if possible. Constantly circulating air is a great way to keep a space feeling fresh and clean - you will certainly notice a difference. 

A new lick of paint 

Now is the perfect time to give the walls and ceilings a bit of a spring revival with a fresh lick of paint. Opting for safe white, of course, is going to help make your space feel light and vibrant. However, by all means, if you are comfortable with colour, then why not add some zing and energy to the bedroom? What about just one feature wall if you’d prefer to dip your toe in? If even that makes you feel a little unsure, consider bringing colour and spark in through some new artwork; just a little something eye-catching to herald in the new season’s happy mood. 

A handy dehumidifier 

Do you need to give your air an extra level of spring cleaning? A dehumidifier is for you! Using thermo-electric technology, our dehumidifiers work quickly to remove excess moisture from the air to keep you cool and cOMFy.
