How to Incorporate Your Upholstered Bed with Your Bedroom Décor

Feb 25th 2015 at 3:09 AM

If you have an upholstered fabric bed in your room, you may be wondering how to decorate the rest of the room to match it. This is a good question and one that requires a great deal of consideration depending upon your personal preferences and styles.

Bedroom Curtains

The first aspect you may think of would be matching up your bedroom curtains to your bed. Choosing the specific colour scheme of your upholstered bed is the simplest thing to do, as you just opt a colour within the same family of shades as your curtains. While you may or may not wish for your curtains to be the same coloured upholstery as your bedding, this will largely depend on how sleek, modern or fancy you would like your home’s ultimate décor to be. Having a colour in the same family of shades adds an extra dimension to your bedroom that you simply could not gain otherwise.

In addition, homeowners designing their bedroom could opt to have their bedroom curtains in the same colour as your bed, but featuring a darker or lighter version of the shade. Again, whichever one correlates the room best for your tastes will depend on your personal preferences.

For those who live alone, the process of choosing design schemes is much easier. However if you do, it’s only right that you take your partner’s preferences into consideration too. If you two cannot agree on a colour scheme between your curtains and your upholstered bed, collaboration and compromise are the ideal methods causing the least amount of friction.


If you have cheap divan beds, and want to get the fabric look of an upholstered bed, you can make your own headboard. A lightly coloured headboard makes for a lovely addition to your room. Additionally, the light shade allows room for you to reupholster the headboard in the future should your tastes in design alter.

Since the headboard is the centrepiece of your bedroom, sticking to light, soothing colours is the best plan of action. A dark or bold headboard can stick out like a sore and may even keep you from relaxing and getting the sleep you require on a nightly basis. If the upholstery on your chic bed is patterned, you’ll definitely want a plain or basic headboard.

Re-upholstering your headboard can be an easy and fun DIY project for those with an inclination for such hobbies. By utilising plywood, foam, quilt batting and fabric, you can easily make a stunning headboard for your upholstered chic bed. Such a task will necessitate a hot glue gun, a staple gun, electric carving knife and jigsaw in order to complete.


The first step in the process is to cut the plywood to the appropriate size prior to covering it with the fabric and the foam. Once you have reached this step, affix it your wall and add in the finishing touches. Before you know it, you will have an attractive headboard that ties in your own style along with the scheme of your upholstered bed.
