As winter comes to a close and the temperature starts to rise, families everywhere are gearing up for the start of spring. And as any good family could tell you, spring means spring cleaning. It’s the time of year when every nook and cranny is carefully inspected and made spotless. Some even use it as a time to completely redecorate their house and add or subtract furniture.
One of the hardest areas to clean up is the bedroom because it’s the one place in the house where we spend the most amount of time.
