The crochet footboard is that piece that is not mandatory, but when used it makes all the difference in the decoration and comfort of the room.
And if you are also a fan of crochet peseira, keep following the post with us. We brought tips and many ideas on how to crochet peseira, check it out.
What is a crochet footstool?
The crochet footboard or even in other fabrics is a piece that complements the trousseau and bedding.
More decorative than functional, the footboard can be used in beds of any size, from king size to children’s.
As the name suggests, the footboard is a strip of fabric, in this case crochet, used to cover the lowest part of the bed, close to the feet.
The crochet footboard, in particular, guarantees that cozy and comfortable touch to the room, thanks to its soft and fluffy texture.
And despite being extremely decorative, the crochet footboard does have a purpose of use.
That’s because it can be used as a blanket to cover yourself on those days when you just decide to take a nap in the middle of the afternoon and have no intention of undoing the whole bed.
What is the ideal size for a crochet foot?
This is a question that a lot of people ask themselves, since it is possible to come across peseiras of the most varied sizes out there.
What makes all the difference is the size of the bed. King size bed models, for example, ask for larger footboards than a standard double bed.
Therefore, the ideal is to measure the bed before buying or making the crochet footboard.
Remembering that the strip that is over the bed has no minimum or maximum width, you define it based on the decorative style of the room and your needs. However, it must not be larger than the bed linen, that is, it cannot cover the bed completely.
If you choose a larger footboard, the ideal is to use it folded over the bed.
On the other hand, the side trim of the crochet footboard must be at least 20 centimeters on each side.
How to use the crochet footstool in decoration
The crochet footstool will suit any style of bedroom, but there are a few tricks that ensure that the footstool will look amazing in your decor.
In the most modern decorations, for example, the tip is to bet on crochet footpegs with simple stitches, a single and neutral color, such as white, gray or black, and without too many details.
For a classic decoration, it is possible to use a crochet footboard with more elaborate stitches in neutral and light tones, such as white, beige and light pink.
A rustic or boho-style decor combines very well with a colorful crochet footboard. The same goes for children’s rooms.
It is also important to harmonize the color and texture of the crochet footboard with the bedding used together.
To highlight the footboard, use colors that create contrast with the bedding.
But if the intention is to create a more clean, neutral and minimalist environment, the peseira can follow the same color palette as the bedding, varying only in the tone that can be lighter or darker.
