Decluttering and cleaning our bedroom has many benefits, such as:


1. Stress Less

Keep our sacred space free from clutter. So we can reduce mental and physical stressors. Cluttering is usually a safety net of sorts. Those of us with a tendency to clutter usually hang on to emotions longer than necessary. Cleaning can be a way to work through these feelings. Declutter our room and mind at the same time.

2. Increase Productivity

Streamlining our bedroom will make mornings easier. From getting dressed to being more productive at work. Create habits, like making our bed. It will improve happiness and productivity levels.

3. Improve Happiness

Because it allows us to feel on top of things, first thing in the morning.

4. Boost Self-Esteem

Now that we know these benefits, why procrastinate anymore? Let us start decluttering and cleaning the room.

These are the systematic ways to declutter bedroom:


Having our cleaning tools ready to use will be a time saver. Because we won’t have to go to other rooms several times to search for a certain tool in the middle of our cleaning.
Prepare the tools such as:
  • Bin bag for any rubbish
  • Damp cloth
  • Window cleaner and wipe
  • Hoover with attachments
  • Mop


1. Start with the bed

When sorting out our bedroom, be sure to make our bed before doing anything else. “We can then use this as a surface for sorting and organizing everything,” says decluttering expert Sally Walford of declutterme, London. The bed usually takes up the most space. So it makes sense to utilize this rather than cramming everything onto a small section of floor.

2. Wash the sheets if needed

Fold up the duvet and place it near the headboard with our pillows.

3. Restore belongings

If other people’s belongings are in your room, then take them to the room they belong in. Their things can get in your way. You don’t want anything that might be your siblings. So take it into their room and place it on their bed and walk out, it’s not a big deal.

4. Put all the dirty clothes in the laundry basket

Make sure we have got all them in there.

5. Gather all the trash and throw it into the bin

If you find any rubbish like a bottle or paper then put it into the bin. Make sure you get all it! Go around with a bin bag or a trash bag. Pick up all the rubbish that is lying around in sight. Such as crumbled pieces of paper, candy wrappers, and other pieces of trash. Then look behind wardrobes and underneath the bed for the discarded item. 

6. Break down and sort

“Don’t overwhelm yourself by pulling the entire contents of your bedroom out in one go. It’ll take far longer than you expect,” says Vicky Silverthorn, the decluttering expert and author of Start With Your Sock Drawer. Always start small. Focus on an area, work on it and complete it. Then move to another area.

When sorting, separate them into piles

– one for keeps,

– one for donation, and

– one for trash

Stuff the trash pile into the bin bag. Place the unwanted items into a container for donation. And organize our remaining belongings so that they will be easier to find. When donating items, make sure that they still are usable. Do not donate ripped, old belongings that are in poor condition.
7. Remember to let go of things that we don’t need any more
Often we think still need them, but they end up unused and only taking up space in our room.


  • Work around the room from top to bottom. Concentrating on all surfaces where dust and dirt could settle.
  • Use a long-handled duster to get rid of cobwebs and dust from the ceiling and top corners of the room.
  • Clean all light fittings including the bulbs as these get dusty very quick. Be surprised at how much brighter the room is once you’ve finished.
  • If we have picture rails, cornice, coving, curtain poles etc. Hoover or dust around all of these to pick up any dust that has settled.
  • Clean the inside of all windows, and any mirrors and pictures we have on the walls.
  • Clean all light switches/door handle etc…
  • We need to clean any shelves that have things on it. So take the stuff off first. Clean thoroughly. Clean the items as well. And then put them back (remember to make them look nice when you put them back as then that jobs done too!)
  • Clean any wooden/metal furniture
  • Clean all skirting boards
  • Vacuum from top to bottom as well if you prefer you can vacuum the dust-up as well before adding a final polish to surfaces.
  • Vacuum under sofa cushions and vacuum mattresses.
  • Move ALL furniture out of its normal place (as long as its safe to do so of course). and vacuum behind it. here is always so much dust there that we can miss.
  • Vacuum the floor. We need to vacuum carpets and hard floors.
  • Mop the floor as well if it’s a hard floor.


Now everything should be sparkling clean, looking neat and tidy. So add something nice smelling to space and walk away knowing you’ve done a good job!
  • Candle
  • Flowers
  • Spritz of room spray
  • Fresh air (the best, as long as it’s no freezing outside of course!)
We will find it takes less time to do once things are done in this order. And that we find it more efficient and easy to get things done. 
The more often we declutter, the less time it will take.
