Make the bed the cen­tre of at­ten­tion

In a small room it’s tempt­ing to put the bed in the cor­ner to make more space, but it should be the fo­cus, so it de­serves to be in the mid­dle.

Layer up your bed­ding

Use a fit­ted base sheet and a top sheet. If your du­vet is large and re­versible, fold over the top sec­tion so a dif­fer­ent pat­tern shows. If not, fold the top sheet back over it for the same ef­fect.

Mix and match dif­fer­ent fab­rics and tex­tures

Knits are pop­u­lar at the mo­ment, but you can even mix up cable, chunky and reg­u­lar knits. Other nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, like suede, cot­ton and fur, will all look great along­side each other.

Layer your rugs too

Rugs make an ex­posed wood floor much softer and cosier in a bed­room. Jute is a tidy and clas­sic start, but it’s not very nice on bare feet in the morn­ing, so top it with a sheep­skin to sink your toes into.

In a small room, lay one of the rugs par­tially un­der the bed

This ex­pands the area of the bed and helps frame it.
