Why is Velvet The Biggest Bedroom Trend Right Now

Decor styles come and go constantly, with different colours, materials, and combinations. Some materials, however, are timeless and don’t go out of style. One of these materials is velvet, sumptuously luxurious, irresistibly tactile and without being ‘in your face,’ it just brings this je ne sais quoi to your bedroom. It’s available in many shades, from creamy neutrals to bold accent colours and can easily take your bedroom to the next level. 

So let’s have a look at why velvet is the biggest bedroom trend right now!

The Big Velvet Home Trend

It has taken a while, but velvet is finally getting recognized for its versatility and understated elegance to give your bedroom this touch of luxury without going overboard. While it once was seen as heavy and fussy, modern velvets are a lot sturdier and easier to maintain, making them an outstanding choice to give your bedroom an elegant and luxurious look.

But that’s not all, because not only does velvet look sumptuous, but you can also feel it, whether in the upholstery of your bed, sheets or pillows and throws, so it gives you a wide-open range of options to transform your bedroom.

Why Consider Velvet?

Velvet has come a long way from its origins when it was made from silk and considered the material of royalty. Over the centuries, manufacturers found different fibres to make velvet, such as cotton and, more recently, synthetics, making it not only more affordable but also more durable.

Did you know? Velvet refers to the weave and structure of the material, not which fibre it is made out of!

One of its biggest allures is its versatility.


It is soft to the touch and also known to retain heat, making it an excellent choice for a comfortable and cozy sleeping experience.


Velvet is hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, which makes it an outstanding option for those suffering from allergies.


As mentioned above, velvet is a robust and durable choice, making it an ideal material for your bed due to its resilience to everyday wear and tear.


Beds upholstered with velvet come in a variety of styles and colours, giving you a lot of options to find the perfect combination for your personal style and decor. It also adds a touch of luxury and sophistication to your bedroom, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere

Easy maintenance

Velvet is great for people with a busy lifestyle because all it takes to keep it looking great is to spot-clean or vacuum it.

Velvety Inspiration For Your Homes

You can find velvet in a wide variety of furniture pieces, decor and accessories to help you bring your bedroom to the next level!


Velvet-upholstered beds are all the rage, and for a good reason. They can make a true visual impact in your bedroom as they are the main focus. With a wide range of styles and colours to choose from, you can really find the perfect fit for your style and decor. Take advantage of the bold statement a gorgeous headboard can make or the understated elegance of the soft glow of velvet around your bed.


Velvet pillows always are a great accessory, whether to complement your decor or as a dash of colour. They come in different sizes and shapes and also don’t have to be unicoloured; there are patterned options to match your style. You can even mix and match different colours and textures to create a layered look.


Another accessory that can add a lot to your bedroom is a beautiful velvet throw. With the headboard and cushions occupying the head end of your bed, a throw can complete the look of your bed by drawing the eyes to the foot end. Not only do they come in many different colours, but they also can offer different textures and edges to break up the monotony and lend some additional accents.


An accent that is often overlooked is lampshades. While you have to be careful not to overdo it, velvety lampshades can add a unique touch to your bedroom, genuinely accentuating your decor, whatever your style is.

Stools and benches

A stool next to your bed, or a bench at the foot end, both can make a great addition to your bedroom. Choose a bold colour like emerald green, navy blue or burgundy to really make it stand out.


Velvet curtains can add warmth and texture to a room. And you can take the word ‘warmth’ literally because velvet doesn’t just look great but also has outstanding insulating qualities that keep the uncomfortable cold drafts away from you.


A velvet rug can add softness and warmth to your bedroom. Choose a neutral colour like ivory or taupe for a subtle look, or go for a bold colour like fuchsia or teal to make a statement.

How to Clean Velvet?

Contrary to popular belief, velvet is not as difficult to clean and care for as many people think. Generally, you can carefully clean the dust off the velvet with a bristled hairbrush or a gentle vacuum. If you find a stain, it is recommended to mix small amounts of warm water and dishwashing detergent in a bowl to create suds. Then apply the suds to the stain with a soft cloth and lightly dab the area until the stain is lifted.

As the care for your velvet will depend on which fibre it is made of, such as cotton or synthetic, it is always recommended to check the care instructions to ensure you don’t encounter any problems.


As you can see, velvet is a very versatile material that can bring both a touch of luxury and sophistication as well as comfort and durability to your bedroom. Urban Accents Furniture has a great selection of velvet fabric beds with a wide array of different colours and styles, so you can choose the perfect combination to match your decor and personal style. We also offer a wide variety of other velvet furniture and accent pieces to complete your bedroom design.
