When it comes to bedding style, one thing matters the most: comfort. But you don’t have to break the bank to get the fluffy pillows, relaxed colors, and luxurious textures of high-class bedding! Here are 15 ideas to get you that comfortable but cozy look of your dreams.
1. Extra Throw Pillows
This bed has amazing colors, but we’re especially drawn to the subtle, coordinated throw pillows that seem to scream, “LAY ON ME!”
2. Texture in White
White linens can make your bed look extra inviting. This bed sets off the plain color with a textured duvet cover, adding spark to its look.
3. Quilted Luxury
Winter bedding is all bout warmth -- making quilted or knitted throw blankets a must. They’ll keep you toasty while making your bed look fantastic.
4. Lighting is Crucial
Create an inviting, homey space to relax in with string lighting! These bunk beds add some flair with some cloth draping.
5. Tapestries Are IN!
When paired with the right bed sheets or comforters, woven tapestries like this one can complete a space and give it that boho vibe we all love.
6. Amp Up the Mattress
Make sure your bed matches the feel it’s giving off by adding OCM’s top-rated Deluxe Gel Memory Foam Topper.
7. DIY Canopy
To steal this look, all you need are hooks that can go into the wall and a few yards of thin white fabric. Line up the hooks with the corners of the bed, then string the canopy fabric through. That’s instant luxury!
8. Go Dark
Add a bit of masculinity by switching out white for gray and black, like with OCM’s Gray Hampton Plaid set.
9. Create a Headboard
Start by measuring the front of your bed, then cut a piece of thin plywood in the shape you desire. Add padding and fabric with a staple gun, and attach with zip ties or hardware (if possible).
10. Go Natural

Place your bed so it gets ample exposure to open windows whenever possible. The closer you are to natural lighting, the better you’ll feel.

Invest in storage solutions like bedside organizers to add space and keep your cozy feel going.
12. Loft It!
Keep your space your own and maximize privacy by lofting or bunking your bed.
13. Add Touches from Home

Don’t be afraid to get personal with your bedding by bringing in something meaningful -- your favorite pillow, your grandma’s quilt, or a stuffed animal.
14. Cover It Up
Bedskirts make your bed look more inviting and can hide ugly, cold floors. Coordinate with your cozy linens for a super-impressive look.
15. Snuggle Up
Not all bed linens are the same, especially when it comes to breathability. Instead of just jumping in, read up on warmth quality or lightness, and buy the right bedding for your sleep style.
