Apartment Therapy on the Bedroom
Your bedroom is sacred. It is the most important space in your home. It should be unlike any other room in your apartment. It should be private, beautiful, peaceful and clean. It is where you start a family, where you rest from the world, and where you can retreat together. However, most bedrooms are not taken care of. They are neglected. They become the place where extra stuff gets stored, where hurried cleanings take place, and where little time is spent thinking about improvements.
With many clients, we find bedrooms in a sorry state, and tell them it has to change. Hey, all you couples out there deserve a sexy, beautiful hideaway just as much as a single person needs one to lure someone back to. And as much as bedrooms are about sleeping, they are also very strong indicators of who a person really is behind closed doors. Your bedroom can be a deal maker or breaker….
In other words, if you are single and dating, we recommend fixing up your bedroom and keeping your standards in this area high. It will pay off.
However, another huge issue right now in this new allergy season is a good night’s sleep. This is the time to clean out the extra clothes, old cd’s, and shoes, but also to clean out dust and allergens that will keep you stuffy and restless at night. This is something you need to do at least once a year. Therefore, along with fluffing your nest, give it a deep clean:
