Position so that the layers hang evenly over each side of the bed. Turn down the top of the quilt so that a little bit of blanket shows at the top of the bed.

What goes on a platform bed?
A platform bed is a bed frame, often with head and foot board, with many wood slats running from side to side, which are preferably no more than 3″ apart in order to provide proper support for your mattress.
How do you dress upholstered beds?
Start by placing the largest pillows against the headboard. Then add the smaller pillows. The variation in sizes creates a stunning interest against the headboard. Having a variety of textured pillows is important because they add dynamic dimension to your bed.
How do you tuck in bedding?
Stand at the side of the bed and fold the edge of the comforter, near the corner, under the bed so it rests on the floor under the bed frame. Fold the bottom of that same corner, near the base of the bed, back toward the side. Tuck the tip of the corner under the prefolded side. Repeat with the other corner.
Do you tuck in a comforter on a platform bed?
When you buy a platform bed you have chosen an elegant and simple style. In order to accentuate the low lines of this type of bed-frame, platform beds are most often dressed with the blankets tucked in. (This does not mean you have to sleep with them tucked in!!)
Why do hotels tuck in duvets?
“This ensures the sheets are firmly anchored to the bed so that they do not move around when the guest gets into bed and so they remain free of unsightly wrinkles. The tucked corners also gives the bed a very neat and tidy appearance, akin to a neatly wrapped gift.”
Should you tuck in your comforter?
The Comforter – Place your comforter on the bed with the top about one and a half feet from the top of the bed. This should leave you with linens un-tucked on either side but completely tucked at the bottom of the bed. 6. Fold down – From the top of the bed, fold the sheeted comforter down about 6 inches.
What’s the point of a headboard?
Why is a headboard important and necessary? A headboard gives support to your bed, but most importantly it protects your wall against abrasion. As well as a headboard’s practical uses, a headboard can also give your bedroom a very personal touch.
Is it OK not to have a headboard?
While we love a beautiful headboard as much as the next home decorator, it’s no longer a necessity to create a finished bedroom. Not only does decorating without a headboard allow you to be more creative and think outside the box, but it can also free up space and give you more room to work within a small space.
Can you put any mattress on a platform bed?
A platform bed is more compatible than a box spring because it can accommodate most mattress types, including memory foam, latex, and hybrid mattresses. Box springs are most compatible with innerspring mattresses.
Why are platform beds so popular?
Platform beds are very low to the ground, which increases their stability and also makes them great bed frame options for short people. The platform is also perfectly suited for memory foam mattresses, which are popular because they also provide a firm, supportive sleeping surface.
