Tips for Choosing the Right Size Comforter for a Queen Platform Bed

What size comforter for queen platform bed

When selecting a comforter for a queen platform bed, one of the most important considerations is the size. Measurement is an essential part of the process as the wrong size of comforter could result in a sloppy and unappealing look.

To ensure that your comforter fits properly, take the time to measure your bed so that you can make an informed decision when shopping for comforters.

Measure the length and width of your bed

When buying a comforter for a queen-sized platform bed, the most important thing to keep in mind is getting the right size to fit your mattress correctly. To ensure you’re getting the right size, it’s important to measure the length and width of your bed. For a queen-size platform bed, you’ll need a comforter that is ninety inches wide and ninety five inches long.

It’s also important to measure any other furnishings in the bedroom, such as dressers or side tables, before deciding on a size for your new comforter. You want to make sure there isn’t too much excess fabric that could bunch up around furniture and detract from the look of your bedroom decor. You should also pay attention to seam placement if you’re buying an oversized comforter – often manufacturers will place seams in clever ways so they don’t interfere with designs or hang over frame edges.

Finally, be sure to double-check measurements before ordering or buying pre-made quilts, duvets and coverlets – sizing can vary from store-to-store or by brand specifications. If all else fails, custom sizes or modifications are possible for many types of bedding items if it’s something that can be easily adjusted onsite at home such as width reduction; just always be sure of measurements beforehand!

Measure the height of your bed frame

An important first step when selecting a comforter and bedding accessories for your queen platform bed is to measure the height of the frame. If you have a standard platform style, you should measure from the top of the platform to the floor and subtract five inches. Queen platform beds without headboards or footboards usually stand about 16 inches high, so subtracting 5 inches provides an estimated 11-inch comforter drop.

If your bed frame has a footboard, be sure to measure from the top of the mattress to just below it; this will give you an accurate comforter drop length for that particular model. A drop length of approximately 14-18” is ideal for traditional styling, while an average mattress thickness ranges from 8-14” – so keep these measurements in mind when determining your final comforter size.

Consider the Style of Your Platform Bed

It’s important to consider the style of your platform bed when choosing the correct size comforter. Knowing the bed’s measurements and measurements of the comforter you are purchasing will help you get the perfect size. Additionally, if your platform bed has a footboard, make sure you measure the height of the headboard, which will help you know how much of your comforter will be seen at the head of the bed.

Choose a comforter that fits the style of your bed

When considering the style of your queen platform bed, you should also choose a comforter made to fit the style and size of the bed. Platform beds come in many styles, from traditional wood and metal to more contemporary designs. The right bedding will utterly transform the look of your bedroom with its color, texture and patterns.

Before shopping for a comforter, measure your queen platform bed so you know what size you need. More often than not, standard queen-size mattresses measure 80 inches from head to toe and 60 inches from side to side; however, it’s good practice to double-check and measure for accuracy anyway. You want a comforter that fits snugly on top of your mattress without bunching up or falling off.

Next, decide on a color scheme for your room that complements the look you want for your bedding. A standard black or white will elongate or shorten a room depending on how it’s used – the characteristic tubular design of a platform bed is accentuated by bold colors like reds, blues, greens and yellows that can totally bring life back into otherwise dreary décor schemes.

Finally take into account any materials used in manufacturing the material such as fabrics blends, cotton scales (manufacturers will print either thread count [TC]) on their product label) and percentages of down fill so as not to feel overwhelmed when choosing options at brick-and-mortar stores or virtual outlets online! Take into consideration how thick or thin you would like it based off temperature – in some cases quilted does a better job at keeping heat in whereas lightweight duvets are best for warm sleepers who tend even during colder months!

Consider the color and pattern of your comforter

When shopping for a Queen Platform Bed, you also need to consider the color and pattern of the comforter that will fit it. Whether your home has a modern or traditional look, adding a bold pattern or bright color can help to bring out other elements in your room. On the other hand, if you prefer a subtle effect, softer colors and patterns can extend the calming atmosphere of a bedroom space. If you have kids at home, consider their favorite colors and hues.

Choose from comforters with:

  • Bright floral prints
  • Geometric figures
  • Sports logos
  • Characters from beloved movies and television shows

There are many great online stores that offer an incredible selection of high-quality queen comforters so finding one that complements your décor is easy.

Choose the Right Size Comforter

A queen platform bed can be a great addition to your bedroom, but one of the most important decisions that you will make is choosing the right size comforter for it. Finding the perfect size comforter for your queen platform bed can be a daunting task, but thankfully, there are a few key tips that you can follow to help make the process a bit easier. Let’s take a closer look.

Determine the size of comforter you need

Choosing the right size comforter for your bed is essential in achieving a finished bedroom look. Standard-size comforters are typically available in twin, full, queen and king. When shopping for a queen platform bed, the typical way to determine the size of comforter you need is to double the width and length of your mattress size.

For example: If you have a queen-sized bed, start by measuring its length and width which will give you 60” x 80”. Then double each measurement: 120” x 160”. This provides an area that is large enough for full coverage of your mattresses with some overhang onto your platform bed frame.

To be sure you get the right size comforter for your needs, it is best to measure both the width and length of your mattress and then again measure from the floor up to where you want or need your overhang to begin; these two measurements should match up and differ only by no more than one inch if possible. Make sure this information is included on all orders just in case they are accidentally sent incorrect sizes or styles of comforters.

With these tips in tow, choosing a stylish new coverlet for your queen platform bed can be done with ease!

Choose a comforter that is slightly larger than the bed

Choosing a comforter that fits your bed can be tricky. It is important to select one that is the correct size for your mattress and platform bed frame. Queen beds require a larger comforter than other sizes, such as twin or full.

When purchasing a comforter for a queen size platform bed, it’s best to choose one that is slightly larger than the bed itself. This helps ensure that the comforter hangs down far enough to adequately cover the edges of the mattress and keep you nice and warm throughout the night.

Additionally, choose a comforter with an appropriate thickness. If you plan on using extra blankets underneath your comforter, or if room temperature in your home tends to fluctuate significantly, then opt for a thicker model so you have some added warmth when needed. Additionally, look for smaller details such as:

  • Fabric type
  • Insulation fill

if you’re looking to maximize comfort and warmth.


Consider the Fill and Fabric of the Comforter

When you’re shopping for a comforter for a queen platform bed, two of the most important factors you need to consider are the fill and fabric. The fill will determine the warmth of the comforter, while the fabric will have a big impact on how it looks and feels.

In this section, we’ll go over some tips for choosing the right fill and fabric for your comforter:

Decide on the fill material you want

The fill material for your comforter largely depends on your budget, climate, and personal preference. Today’s comforters come in various fill materials, from synthetic to down and feather.

Synthetic fills are usually made from polyester or other synthetic fibers and tend to be cheaper than down or feather comforters. Synthetic fills provide enough warmth on cooler days without trapping too much heat, so they are ideal for year-round use. Polyester is also naturally hypoallergenic and easy to care for, so it is a great option if you want an allergen-free environment in your bedroom.

Down and feather comforters are a popular choice because of their light weight and excellent insulating properties. Down has been a favorite fill material for centuries because of its natural ability to trap body heat while allowing your skin to breathe. Feathers add loftiness but can have a tendency to poke through the fabric after a few years of wear and tear; however, ducks with refined outer feathers are sometimes used instead of traditional goose down feathers with raised quills that can be uncomfortable against the skin. Be sure to check the labels carefully when shopping for a down or feather comforter so that you know exactly what you’re getting before purchasing it!

Choose a fabric that fits your needs

When shopping for a comforter for a queen platform bed, the fill and fabric of the comforter should be considered to ensure comfort and durability. Natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, or silk typically cost more but feel softer to the touch and are breathable materials. On the other hand, synthetic options may feel coarser but are generally less expensive and easier to care for.

Consider purchasing a comforter that has a filling made of down or organic material such as bamboo, hemp or alpaca. Down is an excellent choice if you need extra warmth. However, if you live in wet climates or areas prone to allergies consider hypoallergenic options such as mohair wool fills. Additionally, look for baffle box construction which has individual chambers that keep the fill evenly distributed and prevent it from clumping over time; creating pockets of air to trap body heat in winter months.

Caring for your comforter can also influence how long it lasts and its ability to provide optimal warmth throughout its life span. Look for ones with easy-care instructions that require minimal effort to launder such as machine washable items with mixed fiber content materials which makes them more durable than all natural fabrics. Most importantly read labels carefully before purchasing so your comforter can meet your needs without needing frequent replacements due improper care instructions being followed or not selecting the right fabric type in the beginning!


Select the Right Accessories

The right accessories and bedding can really make a difference in the look of your bedroom and also add an element of comfort and style. When it comes to selecting the right size comforter for a queen platform bed, there are a few things to consider before making a decision. Let’s take a look at these tips and determine the best route for you:

Choose bedding accessories that match the comforter

When choosing the right size comforter for a queen platform bed, it’s important to ensure the bedding accessories match for a well-coordinated look. Start by choosing sheets that will fit your mattress. To make sure you have the correct size mattress, measure from end to end and from side to side of the mattress. The correct measurements will be written on your mattress label or listed in the description of your bedding selections.

Next select one or two pillow sizes that are in keeping with the look of your comforter – a few standard or king-sized pillows for a large queen comforter, just one or two standard-sized pillows for a smaller queen covering. It’s also important to check that you have enough pillowcases – you’ll want two cases per standard pillow and four cases per king pillow when using multiple sizes on one bed.

Finally top off the ensemble with coordinating throw blankets and shams if desired, as well as any extra details like accent pillows and decorative cushions that complete your look without distracting from it. Put everything together, make sure everything fits properly on your bed and curl up in some luxurious comfort!

Pick a bed skirt that matches the comforter

When deciding on the perfect comforter for a queen platform bed, it is important to not only pick a size that properly fits the bed, but also pick accessories that will help bring the look together. One of these important accessories is a bed skirt that complements the comforter in both color and material.

When choosing a bed skirt, consider your design style and the overall color palette of your room. Depending on your preferences, pick one that plays off the same colors in your comforter but consider as well adding another “pop” of color or pattern to give it a more lively feel. When deciding on material, consider if you’d like something breathable such as cotton or something more luxurious such as velvet to give you more comfort and coziness while sleeping.

There are various sizes available when selecting a bed skirt for your queen platform bed – make sure you measure correctly before making your purchase so that it properly fits the length and width of the mattress as well as any box spring or storage drawers you may have with it for added convenience. Once you’ve made sure you’ve got the perfect size, now all that’s left is to sit back and enjoy feeling comfortable in style!
