Comforter Styles & Materials to Match My Room
The easiest way to create a cohesive room starts with color and pattern. Sticking to one color family is a simple and elegant way to decorate a room without creating an imbalanced look. If you want your bedroom to be more adventurous, you can try your hand at mixing your comforter, quilts and coverlets in complementary color families like blue and orange, purple and yellow, red and green, etc. However, if you’re apprehensive but still want to get this look, the easiest way to mix and match is to search for different textures and styles of textiles in neutral colors. Comforters also come in a range of fabrics that can truly emphasize the look and design of your space. If your bedroom has rustic elements or is bohemian chic, comfortable comforter sets and duvet covers made of natural textiles with strong weaves, like cotton, linen and hemp, emphasize the homey and earthy elements inherent in this style of decor.
How to Wash a Comforter
Before throwing your comforter in the washing machine, always check the care instructions on the label to see if it’s machine-washable or dry-clean only. If you can’t wash your comforter at home, drop it off at a trusted dry cleaner and wait to pick it up. But, if the label gives you the go-ahead, then you’re safe to spot treat stains with a fabric cleaner or baking soda and water. Then stuff the comforter in your machine and use mild laundry detergent to protect the colors and integrity of the fabric. Use the gentle cycle to make sure the machine doesn’t cause damage to the filling. Then, place the comforter in the dryer with a set of dryer balls to fluff up the comforter while it dries.
