Complete Your Space with the Perfect Bedding/Quilts & Coverlets

Complete Your Space with the Perfect Bedding/Quilts & Coverlets

There is nothing better than a warm comfortable bed especially as the seasons begin to change. Sleep is one of, if not the, most important parts of our day. Not only should your bed be comfortable, but it should look good too. Bedding used to be a practical purchase but now your bed is a sanctuary. You should design it as such. After all, this is a place where you will be spending a lot of time relaxing and sleeping. It should be an incredibly inviting place to be. Here is how you can complete your space with the perfect bedding/quilts & coverlets. Visit us today to browse our selection

Get Quality Basics 

First off, there are many different elements of bedding. There are bedspreads, coverlets, sheets, pillowcases, and more. When you pick bedding, don't simply be drawn to a look, pattern, or colour. Consider the fabric it is made out of and your particular needs. Check the thread count and the weaving of the fabric. The higher the thread count the softer the sheets and pillowcases will be, meanwhile a tighter weave signals better quality. Take time to look at coverlets. They may seem like a thing of the past, but they can be really useful especially if you want versatile bedding. They can change position and fold up easily whereas a bedspread is a bit too bulky. When it comes to quality basics, the bottom line is choosing something comfortable, functional, and can be cleaned easily.  

Decorate with Cushions 

You may be more drawn to quality bedding in neutral colours. After all, it's much easier to add a colour to a bedroom rather than fit it into your existing style. Choosing basic bedding doesn't have to be boring. Spice things up with fun cushions and pillows that can be easily changed out. Many places sell decorative covers for pillows which allows you to easily change them as seasons or your tastes change. These decorative elements give you a chance to have some playful fun and show off your personality. If you did happen to choose a pattern bedding, choose one colour from the design to accent with your cushions. Adding too many different types of patterns and colours can get too busy and take away from the look you're trying to achieve. Remember, pillows and cushions can easily be changed out so there is plenty of time to showcase tons of your favorite styles!  

Need to Hide Your Pillows?

Does your spouse hate those pillows? They may love a more minimal modern bed, but that doesn't mean you have to get rid of the pillows altogether. Compromise by getting an oversized basket to keep in your room. At night, when it's time to sleep, remove the decorative pillows and place them within the basket. This way, you won't have to worry about your significant other sleeping on the decorative pillows or tossing them without care onto the floor. They will keep your accent pillows looking better over time and there will be far less fighting!
