Get comfy with bed blankets
There's nothing better than creating a cosy bed to retreat to after a long day. A bed blanket is a useful little addition to any home, but it will also create that warm cosy feel, which is just what every bedroom needs. To find the right bed blanket for your room, it's worth considering practical things, like how much warmth you need, how you want it to look and feel. With a big variety of bed blankets on eBay, you can easily refine your search once you have a clear idea of what you're after.
One thing to keep in mind is the size of your bed. A single sized blanket is going to look slightly out of place on a king-sized bed. Your room and the bed is the most obvious way to whittle down your search from the start. You can find everything from super-king sizes to singles, and everything in between. Non-standard sizes are also worth looking at if you have a bed size that's outside the norm.
A cuddly, cosy blanket is what most people are after, and the type of material you select will dictate how it feels. You might even want something that's a bit lighter and breathable. Or, a material that's easy to wash and maintain, especially if you need to clean it regularly thanks to pets or children.
Polyester, flannel, faux fur or Sherpa fleece bed blankets are available, so check out the qualities and care advice of each before you buy. For added comfort, you'll find electric bed blankets that generate heat to keep you cosy.
If you want to use a bed blanket to create a feature, thinking about design is perhaps one of the most important decisions. Striped bed fleeces create a contrasting style to your bed to catch the eye. Designs for little ones like those with Disney characters are ideal if you want to add a focal point in a children's bedroom. Or you can find elegant styles from brands like Victoria's Secret in adult's rooms.
