There’s no greater feeling than getting into a freshly made bed, but tussling with your 10-tog duvet isn’t quite such a sleep-inducing thought. Wrestling to get the duvet evenly distributed within the sheets can often feel like a full-body workout, but it doesn’t have to. If you’re finding yourself bombarded by different methods of how to efficiently put a duvet cover on, we think you’ll be glad to find out there are two rather painless methods to make the ordeal a little easier. Here’s Liberty’s simple guide to making your bed - just in time for laundry day.
Styling a Hotel-Worthy Bed
While dressing the bed with luxury bed linen is key to creating a stylish space, actually making up your bed correctly is crucial to positively reinforce a good night’s sleep for both you and any overnight guests. According to Liberty’s resident Bed Stylist Hannah Edgar, there are a few key tricks to getting that hotel finesse at home:
Using two pillows on each side of the bed is an ideal and traditional way to add height - and a great starting point to embellish with decorative cushions. Tuck the bottom pillow under the duvet to create a cosier bed, ready to dress-down and jump in. Layer with your top pillow and a few cushions, preferably with a patterned fabric or trim for added personality.
A reversible duvet cover is a tried-and-tested Liberty trick to elevate your styled bedscape. They look great subtly folded back for a peak at the underside print, and are perfect if you like to change things up more often than you change your sheets.
