If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add comfort and charm to your bedroom, opt for a snuggly bed throw. Bed throws are an affordable way to infuse character to your home, whilst adding depth and texture to your room’s overall aesthetic. Whether you’re into quintessential British design, Scandinavian simplicity or contemporary styling, there’s a bed throw to suit every space.
How to style a bed throw
How you style your bed throw can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your space. From irregularly draping a throw over a corner of the bed to folding it neatly over the pillows, there are several ways you can style a bed throw to create a bedroom aesthetic that’s unique to you. We recommend double layering your bed throws for an expansive bohemian look, whilst mixing colours and textures to really layer up the space.
Achieve a classic look by splaying your throw out across the whole bed – like how you would a bedspread. Once flattened and tidy, tuck the edges of the throw into the bed to create a look that mimics that of hotel luxury. Don’t forget, throws and blankets are a versatile addition to any decor – they can also be used as a blanket for warmth, as well as draped over other areas of your home such as the sofa.
Which colour throw goes with my bedroom?
If you’ve gone for a neutral colour scheme in your bedroom, draping a vibrant throw over your bed, such as bold burnt orange, will create an eye-catching focal point and make the room pop. You can then pair your colourful bed throw with plump cushions in a matching shade to complete the space. Alternatively, if your bedroom is already full of colour and texture, a muted pastel throw in a block colour will create a sense of calm and unity within the room.
What material is best for a bed throw?
The material you choose for your bed throw depends on how you’ll use it. Ask yourself: is the bed throw purely for decoration purposes? Do I want my bed throw to double up as a cosy blanket? If you’re planning to use your throw as a snuggly blanket, don’t forget to consider how hot it will get. A warm bed throw, such as a fleece throw, is perfect for the winter months but will likely become too hot in the summer.
It’s important to choose a throw material that works harmoniously with the rest of your bedroom decor. If your bedroom is lacking depth, opt for a textured bed throw such as a knitted or quilted throw. The added texture will give the illusion of a cosier, warmer bedroom space, compared to a cold, characterless one. At the same time, don’t pick a throw that would appear out of place to the rest of your bedroom scheme. Creating a cohesive style that blends seamlessly throughout your home is key to a relaxing, calming environment – so choose wisely.
