Black and White Checkerboard Bedding

Bold beginnings ... like these budget-wise, black and white checkered comforter, duvet and sheet sets are a great beginning to a fun, high-energy bedroom.

The highly-visual pattern in this black and white bedding is fabulous at capturing and holding our attention before the eye moves smoothly to other pieces. A great start to what will be a sure win at your 'finish line.'

Highly visual, classic checkerboard bedding is an ideal way to rev up an otherwise boring space... 

And the noncommittal pattern of checkered bed sets pave the way for a plethora of bedroom decor schemes from the expected race car, checkered flag theme to a throwback in nostalgia, with spindle beds and other period pieces added to the mix.

Keep your love of the checkered design intact: start with your bedroom's star attraction--the bed--and incorporate a few of the balancing tips below for a black and white checkered-flag finish you've long been dreaming of.

Ideally, your bedroom's focal piece is the bed, as it's most likely the space's biggest contributor, so you'll want to play it up with great bedding that contrasts nicely with the wall and its surrounds.

Beds: Your Bedroom's Show-Stopper

Modern Black and White Bedding: Checkerboard

Bedding has a big list of criteria it must meet; it's your room's welcome mat, ushering in guests, introducing your room's theme and transforming an otherwise, cold slab of a bed into a warm place worthy of retreatingto. That's quite a job description!

Going uber-big on your bedding is a perfect way to start your decorating venture. Having your bed and its dressing serve as the room's base makes easy work of appointing the rest of your checkered decor or racing theme, as you'll want to keep your bed the showstopper it is. Don't add anything that will trump the spirit of your comforter or duvet, so keep supporting pieces, your art and accessories, just that--supporting pieces.

Decorating Kids' Rooms in Busy Patterns: Words for the wise

Since this checkered bedding does such a good job being the highly-visual focal piece, it would be best to focus your themed pieces on opposing walls for adding other decor like wall decals.

In the model room here, matching curtains would be too busy, diluting the value of the comforter; the eye just bounces to and fro with little appreciation for either piece. Solid window panels are best here; they won't compete with the bed set, keeping comforter front-and-center as it should be.

Racing Checkered Flag Theme Bedding

I love the strong hues of both bed sets; nothing else needs to be in close proximity of either set and play into the safe 'less is more' mantra.

Keep Your Checkered-Themed Space "Awe-Full" Not Awful

Obviously, the black and white checkered pattern is one busy design, so you'll want to be conservative about adding other checkered pieces, lest you wind up with a space that renders its victims nauseous and dizzy.

Imagine all your textiles: bedding, window panels, throw pillows--even a rug--being the same pattern. I'd venture to say you'll be blinking at little black and white squares well into the evening.

Are you blinking rather madly at just the thought?

One way to keep your retinas checker-free is with careful balancing of checks and solid pieces like the white and black, reversible comforter set, here. With nondescript bedding you can add your checkered pattern with window panels like those above or use white, sheer panels and a checkered valance. It's important to remind yourself how strong this design is and keep from indulging in too many themed pieces.




Checks and Balance Patrol

  • Another way to balance your black and white themed decor is with added color. Choose a strong solid hue to complement all the black and white checkers. Opt for red, blue or yellow as an accent color. They're great choices for adding weight to your scheme without combating with your themed pieces.

  • With most patterns, it's good to go with a 3:1 ratio but with black and white checkered themes, you may want to go for one themed piece to every four plain/color pieces. This way you avoid the dizzy issue and add interest and depth to your space. Less is more!

  • I'm loving the balance of themed and plain pieces with the splash of orange accent on the bedding. Window dressing is spot-on with solid black sheer panels and a checkered valance; they're much like I mentioned, earlier, where the focal point isn't a dizzying clutter of squares everywhere. Hints of color helps keep the eye from becoming mesmerized on the patterned elements.

What's your black and white checkered bedding fave? I'd love to hear from you!
