Get Your Bedroom Ready for Autumn

 

Autumn is coming, the nights will soon be drawing in and it’s time to get cosy for winter. Turning your bedroom into a haven for warm, peaceful nights during the colder months is something to work on from now. Here are some ways to get your bedroom ready for autumn:

 

Have a clear out

Forget spring cleaning, autumn is a good time to get rid of the clutter too. Go through your wardrobes and throw, donate or sell anything that you haven’t worn in the last year. Let’s face it, after four seasons of not using something, it’s highly unlikely you will need it now. Less stuff means less need for storage.

 

Declutter surfaces

If your surfaces have disappeared under bottles, lotions and boxes it’s time to declutter. Get rid of anything you don’t need and put away anything you do. If your current one doesn’t have the space or storage you need it’s time to check out some new dressing tables for something that does.

 

Sort out your storage

Too much? Not enough? It’s time to deal with it now. Get your bedroom organised ensuring there is a place for everything and everything is in its place. Baskets are handy for providing extra storage, blanket boxes are great for well, blankets and bedsheets whilst decorative boxes and containers provide useful storage for all those bits and bobs that end up on top of the wardrobe – without the unsightliness!

 

Layer up

There is nothing quite like new, crisp clean bedding to curl up into after a long, hard day. Adding layers of blankets and throws not only gives your bed a sumptuous, cosy look but will also cut back on the heating bills too. Style and moneysaving – win! Ironed bedsheets are always a favourite of mine – to me settling into freshly washed and ironed sheets is the ultimate simple luxury, especially with a spray of starch! For those of you that hate ironing it’s not all bad as you can now get a perfectly fantastic range of non-iron sheets. Now all we need is someone else to make the bed for us, eh?

 

Get the lighting right

Gentle lightbulbs from lamps give a far cosier glow than the harsh overhead lights so, to wind down and relax, make sure your bedroom lamp provides enough soft light to be able to read by without glare. Candles are also a great way of adding ambience to a room but do be careful that they aren’t positioned near anything which may be flammable at all!
