Bedspreads are making a comeback! A luxury Bedspread / Throw can make a huge different to your bedroom – adding to the décor of the room, and providing a focal point. There are many different fabrics to choose from when you are looking for a Bedspread / Throw – from satin to cotton, there is a material, colour and pattern suitable for every bedroom. When you are shopping for the right Bedspread / Throw fabric, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Always select a fabric that feels comfortable to you. Silk throws may look stunning, but if you don’t like the material, you will never be 100% happy with your Bedspread / Throw.
It’s best to select a plain or elaborate design that will match the rest of the décor in your bedroom – if you use entirely different colours, your Bedspread / Throw may look mismatched and out of place.
Bedspread / Throw sizes vary a lot - so measure your bed before you go shopping for fabric, to ensure that the Bedspread / Throw fits perfectly.
Many people prefer to choose their own Bedspread / Throw material. By doing so, you can pick the exact combination of fabric, colour and pattern to suit your individual requirements and match your room. Curtains made simple have a large range of fabric patterns, most of which are suitable for bedspreads. You can email Curtains Made Simple on

Certainly, bedspreads come in many shapes and sizes, from single and double bedspreads to patchwork quilts and quilted bedspreads – there is an array of choice. However, when you are looking for Bedspread / Throw material, always choose one that it suitable for your needs. For example, if you intend to use your Bedspread / Throw every day – it’s best to choose a material that can be washed frequently. Although bedspreads do not need to be washed as often as your sheets or duvet covers, they will need washing once a month or so to keep them fresh.
Alternatively, if you intend to use your new Bedspread / Throw in a guest bedroom, or for less frequent use, more sumptuous fabrics can be considered, such as embroidered silks. This kind of material can look stunning in a bedroom, and it is ideal in rooms that don’t experience heavy traffic. Also think about pets and children though – an expensive material may not be suitable for a kid’s bed, and if you share your bed with a pet, claws can be a problem with fine silk!
After you have chosen the right material for your Bedspread / Throw, you must make sure that you take care of it correctly. If you do this, you can extend its life and make sure that it lasts you for many years to come. Always follow the washing instructions fully – if a fabric is hand-wash only, do not try to wash it in a machine, you could damage the material or pull it out of shape. If possible, air-dry your Bedspread / Throw, but keep it out of direct sunlight to prevent colour fading. Dry cleaning may be a better option for bedspreads made from delicate fabrics – it doesn’t have to be expensive, and it will ensure that you don’t damage your purchase.
You can match your Bedspread / Throw to the décor of your bedroom, or, in very plain rooms, you can use a splash of colour to add a little interest. Think about using a selection of different fabrics for your Bedspread / Throw, for example, a cotton Bedspread / Throw with lace or silk trimming can look lovely in a more traditional bedroom. And you don’t have to opt for a floral design - there are many different patterns available now, so you can make your Bedspread / Throw as unique as you are!
