7 Tips For Creating A Beautiful Bedroom

7 Tips For Creating A Beautiful Bedroom


We have curated a list of our 7 essential tips to creating your dream bedroom and we think that by following this simple guide you will be on your way to having quite a beautiful bed and an amazing bedroom. After all, you spend a lot of time in your bedroom so why not make it nice?



Let's start!



Drape that quilt cover!


One of the most impactful tips any interior designer will give you when designing a bedroom is that for you to have that picture -perfect quilt cover, you will need to have it drape over the sides of your bed!

See how the quilt cover drapes over the sides? You can achieve this look quite simply by buying a larger size quilt cover than your bed. So for example, if you have a queen size mattress, buy a  king-size quiltking quilt cover to get that look.



Know your colour palettes and match your bedding.


Knowing what colours work together and what ones don't can sometimes be tedious, but once you have a colour palette set and in place, it's quite easy to find bedding that matches your palette.

One of the biggest things people forget is that your sheets play an important role in the feel of the bedroom! If you have hot pink sheets and an emerald green quilt cover, the sheets might be a little bit of an eyesore!

See how the pale blue bed sheets and the quilt cover relate to each other and don't clash? Getting the right colour sheets is so essential to creating a beautiful bedroom!



Let in lots of natural light.


Not only is natural light good for your eyes, but natural light also has a different characteristic to artificial lighting like LED lights.

Letting in natural light into your bedroom during the day is a perfect way to illuminate your room, and if you have a window that can be opened, opening a window to let some fresh air will actually help you rest easier. Sleeping in a stuffy room is never a nice feeling.



Cushions, cushions, cushions!


Cushions are a great way to not only introduce different colours and patterns to your room but also simply adding a few cushions to your bed and bedroom will instantly add depth. And don't stop there, you can also add throw rugs and European pillowcases for extra impact! Take a look at this:

DID YOU KNOW?


If you click on a quilt cover on our website and scroll down, you can see all the accessories available to purchase with the quilt cover! We thought it would be a good idea to make it simple and easy for you to get the full designer look for your bedroom without having to guess what accessories are actually in the picture of the quilt cover!

Unfortunately, sometimes products are discontinued or become out of stock, so if you are interested in an accessory and can't find it, contact us and we can help you!



Get the right-sized furniture.


Purchasing the right sized furniture for a bedroom is essential. If you buy a large bed and you have a small bedroom, not only is it impractical but it also doesn't allow you to have other furniture pieces to help create a beautiful bedroom.

Our advice is that if you have a small bedroom, you should buy a smaller bed. But if you have a large bedroom, you should fill it out with a larger bed. We have a wide range of all different sizes of bedding from single through to super king. You can check out our different sizes

Match your wall colour OR create a feature wall.


When designing a bedroom it is a good idea to remember that the bedding and furniture aren't the only aspects of the room you need to pay attention to.

The walls, floors and ceilings are all very important to the feel of a room, and the colour of the walls is in our opinion one of the most impactful aspects of choosing the right colour bedding. So you have two options.


Option 1: Match your walls already existing colour


Option 2: Create a beautiful feature wall


If you have seen any renovation show on television, feature walls are very popular. Not only does it add an extra layer of decoration to a room, but it allows you to express your creativity and personality through another way. Check this out:


Linen House Quilt Covers


This feature wall is amazing! But you don't need to do something as drastic as rip down a wall anytime soon. You can easily add a wallpaper, rug or simply paint it a different colour to add interest to your room.

Or if you are lucky enough to live near the beach...


Sheridan Quilt Covers


Get a moving feature wall! Place your bed in front of a giant glass wall by the beach and you'll have the best bedroom in Australia!



Add a valance!


If you need to add an extra layer of luxury to your bedroom and you have an ensemble with a bed base, you can make very good use out of valances. They are simply bed linens that wrap around and cover your bed base to both protect your bed base and also make it more aesthetically pleasing!

We just wrote another blog about them, so if you need help choosing a valance, check out our blog
