With more than 10.7 million #bedroom and 3 million #bedroomdecor hashtags appearing on Instagram, it’s clear many people’s private bedrooms have become very public.

Around 80 million photos are shared on Instagram every day – which is why the popular platform has become a source for interior design inspiration.

Many people have been turning online to find inspiration and transform their space into the bedroom of their dreams.

Soak & Sleep have put together the ultimate guide to how to get the most likes from your Instagram pictures. They have analysed hundreds of the top liked Instagram photos from across the world which are trending across some of the most popular bedroom hashtags and found the most common features that will get you the most likes.

1. WHITE BEDSHEETS

Topping the list as the most popular feature is the white bed sheet. In fact, more than half of the featured beds were fitted with crisp white bed linen, helping give rooms a light-filled, spacious and open feel. By opting for a timeless colour scheme, you can rest easy knowing your sheets will never go out of date!

2. WINDOWS

It might then come as no surprise that windows ranked as the second most popular feature. Just under half of the bedrooms pictured had plenty of natural light helping to lift the mood while giving your body a boost of vitamin D. To get the most out of your bedroom's natural light, keep windows unblocked by furniture, accessories or overly heavy curtains.

3. QUEEN SIZED BED

They say that size doesn’t matter but when it comes to beds, it certainly does. A significant amount of the most loved Instagram bedrooms are furnished with a double size mattress or larger. A Queen sized mattress is best for most couples as it gives sleepers their own personal space to minimise disruption during the night.

4. DECORATIVE CUSHIONS

They’re small but adding a few decorative cushions can have a big impact. A large selection of bedrooms featured pillows of all varieties, from small to large to bright and neutral colourings. Adding cushions can help create a cosy aesthetic feel making the room seem more inviting.
