There's nothing more wonderful than snuggling into a beautifully made bed at night that feels as luxurious as a bed in a hotel. But how do you make your bed like a professional to achieve that hotel look and feel? In this blog post I am going to share with you some of my simple tips for making your bed to get that luxurious looking professional bed.

Step 1 - Iron Your Bedding
This is a boring but essential one if you’re aiming to make your bed look professional. Make sure that you iron your quilt cover and your top pillow cases at the very least. This will make sure you have a super smooth and professional look when you come to make your bed. If you can't be bothered with fully ironing all of it (I am one of those people!) try using a handheld steamer to steam the duvet and pillow cases once you have already made the bed.
Step 2 - Good Quality Bedding
When styling bedrooms for clients, I always try and specify plain white bedding. This helps to create that hotel look, and keeps the design feeling fresh. You can soften this up later on by adding colour in your throws and cushions. If you don’t want white for your bedding, try and choose a block colour. For added luxury, select cotton bedding that is a high thread count. Thread count refers to to number of threads woven per square inch. It is generally considered that the more threads, the softer the bedding will be. I would recommend at least a 400 thread count for bedding. You can also try linen, sateen or percale sheets for a different texture.

Step 3 - Use Feather Filled Decorative Cushions
This is super important for getting plump cushions that stand upright! Personally I feel like you can never have too many cushions when making your bed. My favourite arrangement for a pro looking bed is the one below. Place two large back cushions, then your pillows, followed by two more matching cushions, and then one patterned cushion front and centre. Feather inserts will allow you to make the cushions look plump and full, so you can make that all important chop on the top! Choose cushion covers in different patterns and textures to create a feature and a professional finish.
Step 4 - Layer With Throws
To complete your professionally styled bed, layer with one or two throws in contrasting colours and textures to your quilt cover. This will make your bed look super soft and cosy, especially in the winter. For a more luxurious look, a large quilted bedspread will make your bed look and feel professional, with that hotel quality finish.
