Bed Blanketing For Kids
When choosing bedding for your bed, it is important to choose high quality products that will last. It is also a good idea to keep extra blankets and pillows around the house to be used when you need them. If you have extra blankets, you can store them at another location in the house or give them to friends or relatives who live in your household. Otherwise, make sure you have extra bedding in case of an emergency such as a sudden unexpected guest or a fire in the home.
There are many types of bed covers and blankets available today. There is the traditional canopy bed cover that is made of heavy fabric. There are also the less traditional designs of plain colored cotton or wool on sheer fabrics that are attached to the frame of the bed. The latter design is much simpler and more functional.
Before you set out shopping, consider how you intend to use the bedding in the room. Is it simply to provide a warm blanket on the bed or do you want the bed to be a focal point in the room? The color, style and fabric of the bedding are important considerations. You want to select a pattern that complements the design and color of the room in which it is to be used. If the bedding does not fit into the rest of the room, consider other choices for the design in the room.
Once you have selected the type of bedding you want and the design in the room, you need to think about where in the room the item will go. For instance, if you have a dresser in the room, do you want the item to be visible or covered so that it doesn't hinder your view of the dresser? Another example involves the placement of lamps. Do you want the lamp on top of the dresser, on the table top, or behind the couch? Consider these areas when purchasing the items for the room to make sure the bedding and other items you buy coordinates well with the other items.
Blankets come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Think about how you want to decorate the rest of the bedroom and then choose the size and shape of the blanket that goes with the other bedding and furniture items. The bedroom is a personal space and the decor should reflect your personal preferences. You don't want to decorate the bedroom in a way that it intrudes on another person's personal space.
When it comes to the frame of the bed, you have several options. You can get a traditional head and foot frame, which are the most common. A platform bed is a popular option, and can include a footboard and a mattress. Some platform beds have a headboard that rolls up to the end of the bed. These items can be more expensive and take more work to assemble, but they can be a more flexible option for your bedroom decor.
Blanket designs can be very basic or very elaborate. You can get a simple bed blanketing with just solid colored fabric and no decorative extras. You can also choose more sophisticated bedding that includes a shag, print or other design element to dress it up. If you already have a lot of the standard bedding items and you don't plan to replace them any time soon, an ordinary solid colored bed sheet will do. You can spice up a plain sheet by changing the pattern or color. This bedding can give your room a boost and bring it to life.
Remember that when you're choosing bedding for your kids' room, the overall theme of the rest of the house needs to be considered. If you've got a modern style bedroom with lots of stainless steel appliances and glass accented cabinets, you'll want to steer clear of darker solid colors that will clash with the appliances and woodwork. On the other hand, if you've got a traditional style bedroom, you'll want to go with a bedding that's a close match to the existing theme. Choosing the right bed blanketing will make a big impact on the look and feel of your kids' room.
