Beds are much more than comfortable sleeping spaces. If styled correctly, a bed can become a luxurious centrepiece, adding a touch of luxury to any room. The key is in the details with styling a bed and each design choice you make will affect the overall feel of the bedroom. For our top tips on bed styling, continue reading.
Selecting a duvet cover
Choose a duvet cover set that reflects your style. Whether this is colourful, patterned or plain, ensure that it matches your room and your tastes. If you intend to add a lot of soft furnishings, then a plain white duvet can offer a refined and hotel-like look to your bed. Make sure that the duvet you select is soft and never scratchy to ensure comfort.
Placing your pillows
There is a certain art to styling pillows on your bed. One option is to give your pillows a good shake and then prop them up against your headboard. For a more modern look, place the pillows on top of each other flat on the bed. This adds height and can create a nice background for your cushions.
Throw cushions are what really bring life to any bed. Choose a selection in different patterns, colours and textures for an eclectic look. Different shaped cushions can also add interest to a bed. When placing cushions, add larger ones near the back and smaller ones at the front for a layered effect.
Every bed needs a throw to finish off the look. A throw should be in a colour that is complementary to the duvet and cushions. Choose a fluffy or textured throw for a touch of luxury and extra comfort.
Don’t forget the basics
While styling correctly can transform the look of your bed, it is important to not neglect the foundations of a good night’s sleep. Choosing the right bed frame and mattress is key to achieving a comfortable and stylish bed. Beds come in a range of finishes including wooden, wrought iron and divan style. The finish you select will be dependent on the theme of your room and whether you prefer a traditional or modern look. When deciding upon a mattress, choose something both durable and comfortable. A heavy-duty mattress is a great option if you need extra support while you sleep.
