How to Choose a Blanket For Your Home and Style

How to Choose a Blanket For Your Home and Style

Have you ever shopped for a blanket that looked nice on the shelf, only to get home to find out it wasn’t what you wanted? Whether it’s not as comfortable as you thought or doesn’t complement your home, it can be difficult finding that perfect blanket. 

If you’re wondering how to choose a blanket that’s both functional and stylish, we can guide you to the best choice. 

What Type of Blanket Do You Want?

There are dozens of different types of blankets. Understanding the difference between each one will help you choose the most comfortable blanket for your home. 

For example, if you’re looking for something to keep you warm during the winter months, a comforter (something that sits on top of your sheets and is packed with soft, fluffy material for heat) is the ideal choice. If you want to add a pop of color to a living room or guest room, consider purchasing a throw blanket.

What Size Do You Need?

Size is another important factor when choosing a blanket. Whether you’ll be using it on your bed or draped over an easy chair, you want to choose a size that fits the space. 

For example, if you’re adding a minky blanket to your bed, you’ll want to ensure you get the right-sized blanket. Select one that covers the entirety of your mattress and drapes over the sides and bottom of the bed. 

Typically, blankets are sold in the same size as mattresses (twin, queen, king, etc.), so if you have a twin-sized bed, purchase a twin-sized blanket.

What Material is Best For You?

Blankets come in various materials, and depending on your personal preference, one may be better suited than another. Some common blanket fabrics include:

  • Cotton
  • Wool
  • Cashmere
  • Microfiber
  • Fleece
  • Down
  • Minky (100% polyester fabric)

How Much Warmth Do You Want?

Depending on where you live, you’ll want either a warm or cool blanket. For colder areas, thicker blankets such as cotton or microfiber are ideal. Electric blankets are also a good choice as you can adjust the temperature based on your personal preference. For warmer climates, a breathable minky blanket can provide that extra bit of warmth when needed.

What Style Are You Looking For? 

There are thousands of different blanket styles available. From bold patterns and colors to subtle textures and neutrals, it’s easy to find a stylish blanket that matches your personality and home decor.

For instance, if you’re someone who loves bold, bright colors, this marble rust blanket is a perfect choice. Or you can bring some texture and pattern to a nursery or child’s room with this ridge sand dollar or Jupiter shadow blanket. If you’re looking for a statement piece for your living room, consider this glacier dusty blue minky blanket.

Keep the overall look of your home in mind when selecting a blanket. This will help you choose a comfortable, stylish blanket that adds to the beauty of your home.
