Throws + Blankets

Throws and Blankets

 

You need a new blanket or throw, in addition to bedding, and are debating on what to get. This is usually the last thing on a boys mind, and your instinct may be just to grab something quickly before the options paralyze you. If so, take a minute before you act to consider the following tips to help you find the perfect blanket or throw.

 

Purpose

 

This might seem like a no-brainer, but know what the purpose of the blanket or throw is. Is your current bedding worn out? If that's the case, did you love the fleece you previously had? Then you'll want to consider something similar. If it gets cold at night, know you'll need something a bit heavier, like fleece, to stay warm - or visa versa in the hot summers.

 

Wanting to decorate your room and incorporate something multi-colored? Throws and blankets are a great option for decorating in general. If you're off to college and looking for something to cover up with because your roommate loves to crank up the air conditioning, you might be searching for something different. All solid things to consider that will affect your decision.

 

Blanket vs. Throw

 

Blankets can be used as bedding or as an extra layer of warmth on top of an existing comforter. Their size should be more specific to your bed size than a throw. Blankets are normally the heavier option of the two - fleece being one of the more popular options. A throw is usually lightweight, meant to literally "throw" around you when it gets a little chilly. It's an extra layer, but doesn't have to be a certain size and makes a great accessory. You can have fun with various colors, shapes, and fabrics for your throw.

 

Decorating

 

If you're decorating your entire bedroom, build the throw upon your favorite accessories. This will cause a domino effect and lead you to blankets and fleece throws that go perfectly with the room. If you're living in a college dorm and want to incorporate school spirit, search for blankets and fleece throws that incorporate the school's colors, even in a subtle way. Take a school poster and put a colorful frame around it. Frame athletic jerseys if that's your thing. You could have soft fleece dorm bedding that ties into college accessories, like navy blue fabric with a comfy, plush yellow pillow.

 

Care

 

Make sure your plush blanket or fleece throw is machine washable, especially if you're going off to college and will be caring for it yourself. The less complicated the washing instructions are for your fleece throw, the more time there is to enjoy the college experience.
