Decorating Your Bedroom for Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s Day, take the time to surprise your partner with a romantically decorated bedroom.
For a mom with young children, when it comes to decorating your bedroom, your decor may run more toward piles of laundry and mismatched socks than anything you envisioned before children. While it may be convenient to fold the laundry on your bed, it is certainly not a romantic way of kindling your relationship. This Valentine’s Day, take the time to surprise your partner with a romantically decorated bedroom. Not only will he appreciate the gesture, but it will make you feel like more than just a mom. Try the ideas below to get your started.
Clear the Clutter
This can be easier said than done, but clearing out the clutter is going to go a long way to making your master bedroom more romantic. There is nothing that says “romance” less than a hamper overflowing with dirty laundry. Put everything away where it needs to go and enjoy the open space once the clutter has been cleared away.
Clean the Room
Cleaning is sometimes a dirty word in a woman’s vocabulary, but when trying to create a romantic bedroom setting for Valentine’s Day, it is essential. Break out the dust rag, vacuum and hardwood floor mop and clean the room from ceiling to floor. You know those curtains that you have been waiting to wash? Now is the time. By making the room as clean and fresh as possible, you take the focus off of what needs to be done in the room and turn it on the love that you and your partner share.
Change the Sheets
If you already own fancy sheets, take off the old ones and put the fancy ones on. A simple change of sheets and a fluffing of the comforter can make a bed feel warm and welcoming. You may be surprised how much this simple step helps to improve the look and feel of the room. If you do not own fancy sheets, consider purchasing a set of high thread count linens, or using the best sheets that you have available then give them a spritz of linen spray. Fresh, clean smelling linens are always a joy.
Accessories around the room can help to create a romantic feel. For Valentine’s Day, select a vase of sweet smelling roses or fresh cut daisies. Candles also help to add romance to the room’s decor. Whether they are tall pillar candles, or a grouping of votive candles on a bedside table, their soft lighting and scent make a difference in the room.
The most important thing to do is to plan your cleaning. You will probably need several days to complete clear out clutter and clean your room thoroughly. After all, the mess did not happen in one day and you should not expect it to disappear in one either. Do not save it all to do on Valentine’s Day, because by nightfall, you will be exhausted. Space out the tasks throughout the week and put the finishing touches on just when you need them.
