I admit that I am that person who watches that certain TV channel that is all about designing and redesigning living space.
I have noticed that on these TV shows that a lot of what sells the hard work that is done with all of this designing has to do with packaging the hard work- staging.
How to Stage Your Bed on a Budget @FaultlessBrand #StarchThatPerforms #ad
I was so inspired by all of the staging that is done to the living spaces on TV that I thought that I would try to ‘stage my bedroom’. Of course, unlike these people on TV, I have no budget to stage- making this challenge even more fun.
The easiest things that we can all do to stage a bedroom is to start by getting rid of small items that really are not all that essential. Then we can focus on the bed.
My inspiration for a staged bedroom is the upscale hotel room.
The upscale hotel room is known for it’s comfy looking bed that is almost too comfy to get out of. A comfy bed is something that I am all about.
Here is what I’ve noticed about upscale hotel room beds that I can do when I stage my bedroom.
- Use white, or off white linens.
- Layer the bed- using a flat sheet, comforter (down or down-like), and then another flat sheet covering the comforter.
- Fold the top edge of bottom flat sheet- kind of like a sandwich bag- over the comforter and other flat sheet.
- Go a bit crazy with tucking those sheets into the bed beyond the usual hospital corners.
- Use extra pillows with some kind of a sham or pillow protector.
- And the number 1 tip for creating that staged upscale hotel bed- SPRAY STARCH!
The laundry tip/hack for making your bed feel as comfy as that upscale bed is to use spray starch.
Spray starch can make a bed look crisp- no matter how old the sheet or comforter may be.

I love the feel of old soft cotton bed sheets. The older and softer the better in my opinion, especially in getting that soft feel of a hotel bedroom. Sometimes these soft cotton sheets can get creases that don’t seem to go away. If you have what seems to be a permanent crease on an old bed sheet that you want to use, spray that crease with water, iron it until it is dry, then spray it with starch and iron again.
Here is another great tip if you are a quilt person like I am.
If your wash machine can handle a quilt, wash the quilt as directed. Spray the quilt with spray starch, and then hang the quilt to dry. I like to dry my quilts outside when the weather allows for it.
