The One Styling Trick That Will Upgrade Your Bed Instantly
Transforming your bedroom into a soothing oasis is the ultimate goal. (Surely you wouldn't be here otherwise?) You want your bedroom to be a comfortable place to rest, of course, but you also want it to look cosy, inviting, and reflect your sense of style.
So, you've got your linen threads, you've dressed your bedside table, you've even added a plant or two, but somehow your bed still looks a little... underwhelming?
Enter, a very simple styling trick.
Choose an oversized duvet
Yep, it all comes down to the size of your duvet. You've probably seen this hack in action before without even realising it, as most beds featured in magazines or on Instagram are shot with an oversized duvet. This allows the duvet to hang over the edge of the bed, or even fall to the floor (as seen in Holly Ryan's bedroom above), making the bed look bigger that it actually is.
So, if you have a double bed, consider buying a Queen duvet and duvet cover. If you have a Queen, purchase a King duvet and duvet cover. (Hint: these options are available with our bedding sets.)
It might seem counterintuitive to buy the "wrong" size, but it makes your bed look like one giant pillow, a space that you can't wait to hop into at the end of a long day. The other upside is that if you sleep beside a partner, there's more duvet to go around (and less midnight fights about who's hogging all the warmth).
