If you have an old ladder lying around, don’t throw it out! You might just be able to turn it into an interesting looking and functional storage piece for your open concept closet.
What’s surprising about these storage pieces is that you can really change their look just by cutting down the pieces you hang on them and pairing it with a clutter-free, minimalist bedroom design. Just look at how incredibly striking they look in some of the examples below!
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.
The less surfaces and edges there are in your bedroom, the less cleaning you’ll have to do. A minimalist bedroom design is perfect for anyone who is serious about dust and allergen prevention. These bedrooms from Home and Decor have a super clean and simple look that you can take inspiration from.
What’s great about turning your closet into an office space is that if you decide to keep the doors on it, you can close them and put all that work out of sight! A great option for when you want your den to look like a den or your bedroom to look like a bedroom.
Once you’ve decluttered your bedroom of all those little nicknacks and accessories, it’s time to either get rid of them or store them away where they can’t collect dust. Think furniture pieces or storage solutions with drawers, cupboards, bins, boxes, or anything else that hides stuff from being out in the open.
Dust mites thrive in carpeting, so if you can avoid it, go for any other flooring option so mites can’t build a home from it. Hardwood, laminate, tile or any other material that’s hard and smooth are ideal for easy sweeping and wiping down. Check out some of these beautiful bedrooms from HGTV that look gorgeous without any carpeting at all!
The more people and pets that spend time in a particular room of your home, the more dust that’s bound to collect there. Dust mainly comes from dead skin, hair, fabric fibers, dirt brought in from other rooms or from outdoors, and the mites that thrive in all sorts of warm, cushy areas.
