Bright Basement Guest Bedroom

The following post contains affiliate links and is sponsored by Beddy’s Bed. Read my full disclosure here.

The first room in the basement is finally done! I am so excited to show all the details about this bedroom. I will be revealing more rooms over the next few weeks. Be sure to follow along so you don’t miss out on any of the reveals. I am having so much fun designing this new space in our home. I hope it will be some great inspiration for you too!

We wanted to be able to sleep as many people as we could in this basement. I also wanted it to feel bright and airy. A lot of times basements are dark and depressing. I made sure to keep the walls and ceiling light to help accomplish this. You can read all about the finishes and colors in the basement blog post here. I thought about bunk beds but our ceiling height is only eight feet tall in the basement. Trundle beds were the next best thing. Now, I did a lot of sourcing to find a trundle bed that was not a daybed and did not cost a fortune. Did you know that is almost impossible to find? For some reason, trundle beds are almost always a daybed. The affordable ones at least. In all my searching I finally found these beds and I knew they were THE ONES! I am telling you won’t find a better price and style. I am also really surprised about how good the quality is too. I don’t have the trundles put under the bed yet. I am just waiting on two more mattresses to arrive. This room can sleep four people and the trundles will tuck away under the bed when we don’t need them. It is a win-win!

UPDATE: One of the mattresses came and here is a picture with the trundle below.

Ok, let’s get to the good stuff. This bedding is the real item I wanted to talk to you about. I mean can you see all that cuteness? Come on, bring it in and get a closer look. It is BEDDY’S. Please tell me you have Beddy’s in your life by now! I first became addicted ( I don’t say that lightly 🙂 ) to Beddy’s when I got one for my son’s room. I will be honest, I was skeptical at first too. Let me explain what is all about. It is a comforter, fitted sheet, and blanket all in one that ZIPS UP! Yes, my friends, it zips up so anyone can make up the bed. Including my five-year-old. HALLEJULAH! The best part is that the whole piece goes on like a fitted sheet. Do you even know how much time I have wasted in my life making up the bed, putting on each separate piece? Going around and layering on the fitted sheet, the top sheet, the blanket, and blah blah blah. I would dread laundry day with my old bedding because it took foooorrrreeever. Not anymore. I just stick this entire bedding on like a fitted sheet and BAM! Done.


The most asked questions I get about Beddy’s is: Does it really work? Is it worth the money? Do you have a discount code? If you could get your child to make their bed up and it actually looked good, wouldn’t you? Yes, it most definitely works. The entire top can also unzip and the inside is Minky fabric. Don’t like Minky? Well, you’re crazy then. However, they also make an all cotton interior for all the crazy people 😉 . There is a comfort panel that extends out just for that extra coverage. The fabric is high quality that retains its integrity and color. I have washed my son’s for over a year now. It still looks brand new! Yes, it is completely worth every penny. I am also so excited because I got you guys a discount! If you have been waiting for a sale to try it out for yourself, then now is the time. You can use code WHITELANE20 for 20% off your entire order. Not just one item but your ENTIRE order. This is the Oh So Boho set with the Khaki Stripes Blanket.  The fabric is a beautiful neutral color that can go with just about any decor. If you go check out their site you will see so many more fun designs to choose from. Did I mention they also have pillows, bed skirts, pajamas, and slippers? They thought of everything and it is all some of the cutest products you will ever see. So, if you want to make your life easier and your bedrooms to look clean, get Beddy’s Zipper Bedding. Really, just try it on one bed and I promise you will want this bedding on every bed you own.

The art between the beds was a fun DIY that I will be sharing in a blog post soon. I actually DIYed all the art for the entire basement for less than $10. I got all the frames from Ikea and will share more about that soon. The nightstand you can find here. I just wanted something small to go between the beds. A place to set a few things if needed. The wall sconces are actually discontinued but I found some very similar here. I also had that black tall can with the handle in my decor closet/secret stash 🙂 . It used to actually be turquoise. I got it from Ikea years ago. I decided to spray paint it matte black for this room. Always shop your house first. A little DIY can go a long way. The ceiling fan is the same one I have upstairs. I love that it is low profile for these low ceilings. The tassel pillows were a great deal I found on Black Friday. I usually don’t do a lot of Black Friday shopping but this year we needed stuff for the basement. I was able to find some amazing deals!


I am so happy to have this room finished. I know it will be simple and easy to keep it looking good with Beddy’s. First bedroom down a few more rooms to go. Almost ready for guest. Who’s coming over?


Beddy’s Beds Boy

Ok, I love my son’s room. The Star Wars theme is just what he wanted. Everything is perfect, except his bedding. He has a duvet with a duvet cover. That is the first problem. The duvet is constantly sliding down inside the duvet cover. It is very annoying to have to try and reach down the cover to pull the duvet back up to the top. My little boy really can’t do this on his own properly. That is only half our problem.

The next fun part of his bedding situation is the attachment he has to minky blankets. He just loves sleeping with a minky blanket (or two). Every night I have to tuck him in with a minky blanket on top of him and then cover him with the sheet and duvet. As you can imagine, in the morning the bedding is like a heaping, twisted pile of blankets. When he tries to make up his bed, he mostly just pulls up the duvet cover (because the actual duvet slides down somewhere in the cover). My little one then tries to find the top sheet (that is usually crunched all the way down to the bottom of the bed) due to the minky blanket. By the time he is done (bless his heart) it looks like there is still a lumpy body in his bed. 🙂 You can get an idea from these before pictures.


This is where Beddy’s Beds comes to the rescue. It is a bedding set with the comforter, fitted sheet, and minky blanket (or all cotton options) all in one. The whole thing goes on like a fitted sheet and ZIPS up. SAY WHAT!?? Yes, it zips up like a sleeping bag on the sides to make your kid’s life easier in the morning. This is a game changer people. Not only will it look nice and neat but it is the kid-friendliest bedding you will ever find. My little boy can now make up his own bed and it actually looks nice. Not like a lumpy pile of blankets. The simplicity of this bedding set is EXACTLY what he and I both needed.


Ok, I know what you’re going to ask. Is it worth the money? Yes! A thousand times over. My little boy has been sleeping in his new bedding all week and just loves everything about it. He thinks it is too cool that it zips up and has the soft minky inside. My sweet little boy can also actually make up his bed successfully. I have friends that have Beddy’s and they have washed them over and over with the bedding still looking fabulous. They are a great high-quality fabric that will last for years to come. The best part is that Beddy’s saves us so much time in the morning.

They also make blankets like this cute Check Mate one on the end of his bed. These are so big, soft, and easy to grab. My little boy loves the minky on this blanket. We are always grabbing blankets to cuddle up around the house. This is just perfect because he can grab this right off the end of his bed without messing up his bedding. It is really is our go-to blanket now!

Did I mention how absolutely adorable the bedding is too? We ended up choosing this Game On set that fits seamlessly into his bedroom theme. Beddy’s also has so many other classic and trendy styles. I am already eyeing another cute Beddy’s set for my little girl now. The simplicity of Beddy’s is just too good. I want one for every room now. 🙂 If only everything in home styling could look this cute and be so easy.
