Hot Tips for Making Your Bed the Center of Attention

Hot Tips for Making Your Bed the Center of Attention

When you walk into your bedroom, what's the first thing that you notice? If you think it should be the bed, but it isn't, it's probably time for some changes.

Your bedroom should be all about the bed, so if it's not the center of attention, you need to switch up your decor. So how do you shift the focus of the room from wherever it is now to the bed? If your bed isn't getting the attention it deserves, it's easy to make it the focal point of the room with just a few simple changes. You can redesign your bed, or you can tackle the whole room to make sure nothing else distracts you. Try some of these tips to ensure that when you enter your bedroom, you notice the bed before anything else.

Focus on the Bed's Fundamentals

You don't want the bed to draw attention because it looks sad and lifeless. If yours has seen better days, it could be time to replace the mattress, pillow or even the entire frame or base. An old bed can look limp and depressed like you've slept on it so long that it's deflated. Replacing some of the essentials will not only make it look better, but you'll get a more comfortable night's sleep too. Start by thinking about the frame, and whether you could make some repairs, repaint it or replace it altogether. Then consider the mattress; they don't last forever, and yours could be far out of its prime. Don't put up with an old one when there are things like a Factory Beds double mattress available, which will look and feel much more luxurious. You can add volume in other ways too, so the bed looks bouncy and soft. Try a mattress protector and plenty of plush pillows.

Add a Headboard

If your bed needs some extra oomph, adding a showstopping headboard could be just the thing you need to do. If you buy a board separate to the bed, you can choose whatever you want. It doesn't have to be anything that expensive or complicated, and you can even make one yourself.

Color and Texture

When you have the bed itself set up, you can focus on adding color and texture with your bedding. Instead of just dressing the bed with simple pillow covers and sheets, you can add layers for a bigger effect. Put a runner along the bottom of the bed, or fold a quilt at the end. You can use throw pillows too, to add extra dimension when your bed in made during the day.

Minimize the Rest of the Room

If you want all the focus to fall on your bed, it's better if you keep the rest of the room to a minimum. Make sure it's tidy and free of clutter, so nothing distracts from the bed. Don't have too many colors and shapes to pull the eye away from those on the bed. If the primary color of the bed is white, have color in the rest of the room, but if there's lots of color on the bed, keep the walls neutral.

If you still can't get the bed centered, you can literally put it in the middle of the room. There'll be no missing it when it's always right in front of you.
