How to Layer Kids' Bedding?
A good night’s sleep helps your child grow and get the rest that he or she needs to tackle the day. That’s why your child’s bed is the most important piece of furniture in his or her room. When layering bedding onto the mattress, you start with a base layer of the fitted sheet. If you follow more European styles, you can skip the flat sheet and go straight in with a comforter or a quilt. You can then throw on a coverlet or a throw blanket to add even more layers of warmth. Once the linens are down, you can toss on the pillows. Depending on the size of your child’s bed, place two or four standard pillows against the headboard and use this as a base to load up on accent pillows or stuffed animals.
Kids' Bedding Options for Different Styles?
The easiest way to create a cohesive kids 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 kid’s room to be more adventurous, you can try your hand at matching your colorful kids bedding with other bedroom textiles 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. Another helpful tip is to stick to certain colors depending on your child’s style. Sporty kids rooms generally feature red, blue and yellow textiles. While nautical rooms have a wide variety of blues with pops of red. Whimsical and eclectic styled rooms will feature a variety of colors that are dependent on the child’s unique tastes. Rustic rooms will feature quilts instead of comforters and showcase a variety of earth tones.
Quilts vs. Comforters for a Kids' Room?
The main differences between quilts and comforters are stuffing, thickness and fabric. Comforters can be filled with cotton, polyester and down; giving parents and kids a wide variety to choose from. This bedding also comes in a range of filling thicknesses to give sleepers their desired levels of warmth. Quilts are made of three layers: the top, the batting and the bottom. Quilts are thinner than comforters and feature patterns and designs that reference rustic and country motifs. Kids quilts feature solid colors, plaid, fun geometric patterns and even cartoon characters that add pops of attitude and personality to spaces. While comforters, come in a wide variety of finishes, patterns and colors. Some comforters have a metallic sheen and others have a handmade lace quality.
