A bed runner is a luxurious way to dress up a bed, without the need for a throw. You’ll often see them placed on the beds in higher-end hotels. It’s an easy way to dress up a plain bedspread and match with contrasting cushions. Bed runners are a versatile and flexible way to style a bed. To change the look of a bed, simply adding a bed runner with cushions to match can breathe new life into the space. Bed runners are also an affordable way to change the look of a bedroom, without investing in new bed linen. Just swap the bed runner from one style to another to alter the look.
