How To Choose Throw Blankets That Are Right For You

A throw blanket is a perfect addition to your couch or bed to add a pop of color and style while keeping you and your family warm and cozy. Lightweight, soft, warm and versatile, throw blankets are great to pull over when you are a little chilly on the couch or need extra warmth in bed at night. They can also simply be decorative coming in multiple colors so you can spruce up any room. Whether you plan on buying a throw for decorative or practical purposes, here are some things you need to consider before investing in a throw blanket. 

Choosing the Appropriate Size

A throw blanket is usually made to fit a single person comfortably. However, some brands offer a range of sizes to meet your distinct needs. In order to choose the correct size for your throw, you will first need to determine your intended use for it. The size of the throw you should purchase is contingent on whether you want it draped over the couch, folded over the foot of the bed, or used to cover your entire body. If you are planning to get a throw blanket for the bed, measure the size of your bed before shopping. Remember to choose a throw in a slightly smaller size than your duvet so it does not take over the entire bed.

Choosing the Right Material

The material you would like your throw blanket to be made out of would depend on whether you care more about the style, function, or both. A wool throw blanket would be perfect if you live in colder climates as they are heavy and warm but still breathable. Cotton throw blankets are perfect if you are planning to use them for the entire family, especially if you have rambunctious little ones running about. Affordable, versatile, and durable, while not the best option for insulation in very cold climates, cotton throw blankets are a good choice for children and outdoor uses. Throw blankets made of chenille yarn are a great option if you care about both style and function. Fuzzy and soft, chenille throw blankets are perfect to snuggle under while their beautiful soft drape allows them to hang flawlessly off your couch or the sides of your bed. Chenille fabric is extremely durable as well, making it a good investment.

Choosing a Throw Design 

Throw blankets are often a go-to choice for interior design as they come in a myriad of colors, textures, and patterns, and allow you to decorate your place with versatility. When choosing the right throw design, keep in mind the aesthetics of your home. Make sure your throw blanket will complement other elements in your home but do not be afraid to add a pop of color, texture, or pattern to keep things interesting.
