Quilt Sets: Choose the Best Quilt For You
Most people think that a quilt is simply a collection of individual quilts in a box. But there are other types of quilt sets out there. Sets are far more attractive than single quilts. For example, you can get a set that includes pillow cases, foot warmers, and blanket. A set will give you all the quilts you need for your entire bed.
When you have a nice comforter with an attached duvet you will not need to place another item on top of that. It will look too busy. With a quilt set, the entire bed can be furnished with one bold color or a mix of colors.
Sometimes when it comes to quilts, there are more than one type. In this case you will probably have a base, then several layers, like a foundation, followed by quilts that cover the foundation and the top layer. Some sets may also include a bottom sheet. If you do not know what you are getting, go to a store that specializes in quilting and get the advice of someone who knows. Or you may just be looking at the basic quilt set and may want to upgrade to something nicer.
There are several things to keep in mind when buying a quilt set for your bed. First, if the quilt set is going in the guest bedroom then size is very important. The smaller the quilt, the smaller the bed. You don't want to put a large quilt on a tiny bed.
The bed spreads should match the quilt set. You will also want to get to bed runners. They come in various widths and can be used to dress the bed as well. These come in various colors and patterns and make a nice accent to any decor.
Most people choose a fabric that will go with their other clothing. This can be a hard task since most fabrics look great together. If you are having trouble deciding which color is right for you then go to a store that sells quilting items and ask a salesperson which would look good with your current curtains or sheets. If you can't find anything there, then try a store that does custom quilting. This might be more expensive but they usually allow more freedom with color choices.
Many quilt sets come with matching or complimentary accent rugs. These should coordinate with the fabric in the quilt set. Matching thread colors can sometimes be difficult. You can usually find this information along with the quilt set in the care instructions. Be sure to read through these directions before you start so you don't end up seeing something that doesn't fit. Accent rugs can be purchased in several different sizes and shapes.
Quilt sets are not only for people who make quilts. Many people who buy these will later use them as bedding. Some people even make entire quilt houses out of quilt sets. They make wonderful bedroom furniture. Whatever you use your quilt for, it will look much better with a matching or complimentary set of quilt bedding.
Another great thing about quilt sets is how easy they are to store. They usually have at least three separate panels that can be stored upright or on a shelf. The three sections can then be stacked on top of each other. If you have a large quilt, you can save yourself quite a bit of space by using several of these on top of one another. This is very useful if you have a large family or lots of boxes for storage.
A lot of people choose to have matching quilt sets because they have a design in mind. By selecting a quilt that has an accent or contrasting colored quilt covering, then the set can coordinate with the rest of their existing bedding. They can also be used to create a unique design for a particular room.
Sets can be for a child's room, a man's room, or for both. If you are looking to purchase bedding for your children, you will want to make sure the sets are appropriate. Most kids' bedding has cartoon characters or bright colors and designs. If you purchase bedding that is too bright, it will be difficult for a child to sleep. It could also be a cause of sleeping problems for young children. For a boy, a quilt set that has a sports design or geometric pattern will be a nice choice.
For someone who spends a lot of time in a bedroom, choosing the correct quilt sets can be a tedious process. However, once you have chosen the right ones, they will last a long time. These quilt sets not only look nice, but they are functional as well. You will no longer have to wash bedding so often. You will also have fewer clean-ups to worry about.
