Keep it clean. Make the bed upon waking up. Regularly clean and dust off. Also, make sure that you put things back to their proper places.

Buy the linens that perfectly fits your mattress. Make sure that you have with you the measurement of your mattress when you go shopping for bed linens. Get the correct dimension of your mattress, its length, width and pocket size.

Consider smart storage solutions. In order to keep the bedroom as relaxing and restful as possible, it should be free from clutter. Customize your bed to have drawers underneath to store clutter. Also, a chest of drawers, side tables that function as bedside storage and others are clever ways of making the bedroom clutter-free.

Less is more when it comes to your night table. Your night table is not a shelf so avoid putting too many items on it. Just place the items that you need to reach easily.

Avoid eating inside your bedroom. Do not bring food inside the bedroom as crumbs that you leave behind can become a breeding ground for unwanted pests and insects.
