Getting your master bedroom ready for Fall doesn’t have to a difficult task. You can have your bedroom transitioned into Winter in 60 minutes!
Fall cleaning time is here again. The Fall season is a great time to give the house a thorough deep cleaning.
Fall is a transitional time between Summer and Winter. It’s the time to get the house in shape for your upcoming holiday get-togethers as well as ready for Winter.
Seasonal cleaning is normally done two to times a year. Normally, most people do a thorough deep cleaning of their home in the Spring and Fall.
One of the rooms that I think is a top priority to clean and prep for Fall is the Master Bedroom.
The Master bedroom is supposed to be our oasis. Where you go to relax after a long and stressful day. Where you can go to rejuvenate and get ready to tackle a new day.
Many times though, at least for me anyway, it’s kind of a stressful room. Not because we are like having heated disagreements a lot but because it’s become the family catchall it seems.
Granted, our bedroom though could be stressful because we haven’t changed it up hardly at all since we had the house built 10 years ago. We’ve updated our bedroom furniture as well as the bedding, but that’s it.
Maybe I feel it’s gotten plain and not a relaxing oasis is because I’m just bored with the furnishings? Whatever the reason is, since Fall is upon us, there is no better time to freshen things up!
HERE IS OUR FALL CLEANING CHECKLIST FOR GETTING YOUR MASTER BEDROOM READY FOR FALL:
- Remove all of the bedding, including the mattress and pillow covers.
- Launder all of the bedding.
- Pull out the duvet/duvet cover, flannel shirts, heated mattress pad and anything else that you use on your bed for the Winter.
- Once you’ve laundered the bedding, decide what you will store away to next Spring, purchase new bedding if that is in your budget to do, or if the bedding is gently used and you no longer want it, see if the animal shelters, local thrift stores, or another organization can use them. Or put the sheets in the garage to use when doing work on your automobiles.
- Vacuum the mattress and rotate it if possible.
- Remove any rugs.
- Deep clean the floor.
- Shampoo the carpeting.
