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.
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. This one from Apartment Therapy has the right idea!
What do you think about open concept closet spaces? You definitely have to be a bit of a neat freak and minimalist to make it look as clean and simple as the images above. With the right bedroom design, though, it definitely works quite well.

It’s pretty easy to get bored with your dorm room decor, but duvet covers and shams are usually too pricey to purchase multiples. Get bedding that works twice as hard with PB Teen’s Lucky Clover reversible 100% cotton percale duvet covers and shams that can be flipped inside out to an inverted color scheme whenever you want a fresh look.
This is a style that demands plenty of discipline (unless you are shooting for a Bohemian chic look) and the asymmetrical approach could be exactly what your contemporary bedroom needs to spice things up a bit.
A couple of sconces instead of the traditional bedside lamps, a sparkling floor lamp for a personalized reading nook in the corner, or gorgeous pendants that usher in a transcendental aura; take your pick at your nearest IKEA store and revel in the radiance! Plush rugs and snazzy mirrors add that final oomph that your tasteful, peaceful bedroom needs.
