How to make a bed
Feb, 2022
Making a bed that is both beautiful and comfortable is not always easy. But it might just be a bit easier if you follow this step-by-step guide. You can follow the guide as thoroughly as you want and pick out the tips that you find useful in your bedroom.

Step 1 – basic but important

Let us start with the basics – a bed skirt. A bed skirt instantly transforms your bedroom into a calm space and makes it look well put together. The is especially true if you have a box spring bed, as the bed skirt can help hide the feet and make the space underneath your bed a perfect spot for extra storage. You could, for example, store your bed linen here for easy access.

Step 2 – do not underestimate a quality sheet

For a comfortable sleep and a beautiful-looking bed, you will need a high-quality flat sheet. Those from byNORD come in a variety of colours, so you can match with your bed linen for a cohesive look or perhaps go for another colour for a contrasting, relaxed aesthetic.
The sheets are made of OEKO-TEX® 100 certified organic cotton and come in a percale weave. A tight weave which gives you a durable, breathable and crisp sheet with an air of understated luxury. For a smooth and tight sheet, we have made sheet clips that are designed to keep your sheet in place during the night. Use the clips in the corners of your mattress or place them across the mattress. The result is a comfortable bed that looks freshly made and where you can have a peaceful sleep without the annoyance of a loose sheet.

Step 3 – the most important element

Now here comes the fun part: choosing your preferred bed linen. The element that sets the tone for the entire bedroom and keeps you comfortable throughout the night. This of course sets quite a few requirements for your bed linen. It must be beautiful, comfortable and long-lasting.
At byNORD we have a wide selection of bed linen in beautiful colours inspired by the rough nature of the Nordics and different designs depending on your style. As with the sheets, the bed linen is made of OEKO-TEX® 100 certified organic cotton in a tight percale weave, giving you a cool and comfortable experience every time you lay down.
A big part of having a beautiful bed is maintaining it. When washing your byNORD bed linen, you should always follow the instructions on the label. Furthermore, it is a good idea to hang the bed linen up to dry, as it gives a smoother result than tumble drying. If you do use a tumble dryer, choose a gentle program with low heat. This way you make your bed linen last longer while keeping it fresh and beautiful. Bed linen from byNORD benefits from being washed, as the matt colours and crisp feel only improve with every wash.

Step 4 – the final touch

To finish off your bed, you need something extra cosy. Something to take your bed from beautiful to simply stunning. Here, bed throws and throw pillows are the perfect choice. Place a couple of throw pillows against the headboard or wall to create a comfortable place to sit upright if you are reading a book. Throw pillows also make your bed strike the perfect balance between stylish elegance and relaxed ambiance. They make your bed stand out and allow you to personalise it completely. Choosing different designs will only make your bed appear both cosy and inviting.
When it comes to bed throws, there is no need to overdo it. They are great for extra comfort and warmth in your bed and can be used to wrap yourself in. Just throw it casually on the bed to create a down to earth look of a bed that is being used, and not just a display piece.
