If you are considering redecorating your bedroom, one of the easiest ways to add some extra flair and comfort without too many extra books is to simply invest in a new set of bedding.
Bedding fashions are right in step with other fashion trends, and that means that floral patterns are out and solid color combinations are in. You should pick a color scheme that coordinates with your room color as well as the furniture in your bedroom. Also consider the other accessories in your bedroom such as paintings, rugs, and mirrors before selecting bedding that will compliment the room and achieve the style and effect you are after.
Nothing beats a good duvet for looks or for style. You can buy duvet covers in many different styles, and a duvet is a very comfortable replacement for the traditional quilt. Remember to buy both an inner and outer cover for your duvet, and if you are allergy prone look into alternatives to the goose feather or down stuffed duvet. Watch out, because testing by the Federal Food and Drug Agency has determined that no material is truly hypoallergenic, as most materials could cause a negative reaction even if it’s a minute portion of the population. Based on these findings, the United States Supreme Court struck down the FDA’s definition of hypoallergenic, and thus there is no real standard for what the term actually means. Companies who manufacture duvets could technically market any product as hypoallergenic.
You will want to do your research on the company and how they approach their research before purchasing one of their “hypoallergenic” bedding products. Also, keep in mind that materials such as cotton, wool, and silk very rarely cause allergic reactions, so the odds are that you are safe in buying a duvet stuffed with them or other bedding made of these fabrics. The same is true of manufactured sheets and bed liners.
Color scheme is important to consider when choosing your bedding design for practical as well as fashionable reasons. There are bedding color schemes in darker colors, but these tend to stain. Remember as well to buy a liner for your mattress.
Finally, a bed skirt adds a beautiful and classy touch to any bedding fashion scheme.
