A branch used as a rack to hang your clothes adds a subtle rustic touch, without being at all overpowering. Just make sure it’s strong enough to hold everything and attach it firmly to your ceiling with some simple hardware pieces you can get at any home store.
While regular cleaning and vacuuming is a must, here are a few other tips you should consider when designing your bedroom to help keep the dust to a minimum.
At the heart of every stunning bedroom is a bed that sets the tone and mood of the room and becomes the central focus of the area. Some of the gorgeous bed frames offered by IKEA range from the sleek and minimal to the rustic and Scandinavian, giving you a wide range of styles to choose from.
If you live in an apartment or a “cozy” home, then you know just how much of a hassle it can be to try and position your furniture (or even fit all your furniture) in a way that looks good and is relatively functional.
If you don’t mind keeping all of your clothes in a dresser or hanging somewhere else, then a closet office might be a great option for you. But what about all that other stuff you keep in your closet?
Deciding what to wear to class can be a challenge, but IKEA’s Knapper floor mirror helps reflect the best version of yourself by also letting you plan your outfit for the next day. A sturdy bar acts as a valet for your tops and bottoms, and hooks allow you to map out accessory choices to complete the ensemble.
Do you think you could handle working in a small walk-in? It might not be every claustrophobic’s ideal work space, but it can serve as a great cubicle-style office if you’re already used to working in that type of environment — and the best part is that you can decorate it any way you want.

You could also attach a frame to your wall, as shown in the second example, or you could simply just make use of the shallow closet space you already have by removing the doors to make it an open concept design.
The finish that you choose must work well and complement both the bedside tables and should also enhance the overall appeal of the bedroom. In case you bedroom is dominated by glass, concrete and stone, then maybe a couple of nightstands with a wooden finish can add the necessary warmth. For more glitzy, feminine spaces, mismatched nightstands with mirrored finish are a hip choice.

Just like with carpeting, dust will cling more to anything that’s covered in fabric. If you’re going to have upholstered furniture in your bedroom, go for something that’s easy to wipe down, or choose pillows and cushions that can be removed and washed.
These leather chairs from HGTV are perfect for easy cleaning, and this chair dressed up a bit with an accent pillow from The Animal Print Shop is a good example of how you can incorporate textiles without going overboard.
If your bedroom has a set theme and style and you want the nightstands to reflect the same, but sill offer contrast, then pick a couple that have similar shape, size and broadly fit into the same style spectrum.
