3 Essential Tips for Choosing Your Bedding

Choosing your sheets, pillowcases, blankets, and quality bamboo duvet covers is like making a statement about your personal space. You have to choose your style first before you can start picking the color. If you start the other way around, you’ll end up with a set that does not work with your style. For example, if you start with a charcoal gray bedding and you love English-themed décor, you could end up with a contemporary style instead.

1. Plan and Inspiration

Getting inspired and having a plan often don’t mix. However, if you use a mood board, choosing the right style and color combination is easy. You can literally attach to the board the colors that you want to combine with the style that you have in mind. If you don’t want an actual board, you can use Pinterest instead. When the mood board is complete, you’ll be amazed at how clear you are about the kind of bedding that you want to buy.

2. Patterned Versus Solid-Colored Bedding

If you want your bedding to pick up the accent of the room, patterned colors are the way to go. There are traditional bedding styles that feature patterns that blend with your room. On the other hand, if you want to attain a Zen-like environment in your room, solid colors is the way to go. Solid colors can give your private space a simple elegance that’s excellent for winding down at the end of a day’s work.

3. The Right Fabric

After choosing the right color and style, you have to consider the kind of fabric, too. If all you want is comfort, then nothing beats cotton. If you’re looking for a more formal choice, then you might want to consider fabrics with sheen.

Always remember that your style is the basis of your choice. If you nailed that down, all the color schemes and fabric choice would just follow.
