When decorating your living room space, finding the perfect sofa, sectional and home accents are all an essential part of the process. However, once you settle on all of the major pieces of furniture to deck out the room, don’t neglect small things that make a major impact. That’s right, we are talking about blankets and throws. While a blanket may not be at the top of your mind for your newly decorated home, fact is, they help keep you comfortable and warm while adding a sense of style to the room. At City Furniture, we take pride in featuring throw blankets that are affordable, durable and stylish. If you’re on the market for some, here are some things you should consider.
When shopping for throws, there are two trains of thought on color scheme. On one hand, you can get one that blends in with your dominant color palette in your home. For instance, if you have a blue sectional, simply add a blue throw blanket or two to it to keep you warm and cozy when binge watching your favorite shows. On the other hand, you can decide to use your couch throws as a way to introduce color into your space. Imagine, a room with all neutral shades where you add a yellow throw blanket. This is an easy way to make a bold impact with a pop of color that’s hard to ignore.
If you plan to give your throws a lot of use, the safest bet is to go with fleece or soft cotton. Not only are these kinds of materials extremely comfortable, but you can easily toss them in the washing machine without worrying about them shagging or losing their color. If you’re looking for an added layer of comfort, consider a faux fur blanket. While a faux fur throw may not be the easiest to clean, it adds a bit of luxury and glam to a room that family and friends will love. You can also opt for a cashmere blanket or one made of silk for that level of softness that you desire.
Whether you decide on a fur blanket or a cotton one, make sure that your sofa throws are exactly the size you need it to be. If you want a faux fur throw blanket that’s big enough to cover you when you’re napping, you’ll likely need a queen or king sized one. On the other hand, if you simply want a knit throw blanket big enough to keep your legs covered, a twin or full sized throw will get the job done. Keep in mind that many bed throws come in small, medium and large sizes as opposed to the twin to king sized variations.
