Add a luxurious touch to your bedroom or living room by introducing a decorative throw as an additional feature to help finish off the style of the room. Decorative throws are made from a variety of materials ranging from man-made fibres to cotton and wool. The type of fabric affects the style and softness of the throw and helps determine its use: they can be practical, completely decorative depending on where and how it is placed or a bit of both.
Decorative throws come in a choice of styles, colours and shapes. Fine silk throws are more likely to be completely decorative, while fleece or woollen decorative throws can have a more practical element. Either way, a beautiful throw is a lovely way to accessorise a living room or bedroom.
How to Use Decorative Throws
Throws can transform a bedroom into a stylish oasis and are great to complement curtain and wall colouring. A silky chenille throw or luxurious velvet one folded lengthwise and draped across the end of the bed will help encourage feelings of welcome and warmth. How about a decorative throw over the headboard to help transform the bed?
Decorative throws can be a relatively inexpensive way to improve the look of your living room: perhaps your sofa is looking a little worn, but a beautifully designed throw will help make your old sofa look updated. They are great to add colour to neutral items of furniture, or if draped over the back of a chair add a warm and cosy feel. Whether they are draped over the arm of a chair, positioned on the corner of a sofa or cascade over the back of either, they provide a focus and finish to the living room.
Of course, decorative throws can also be practical. They can protect items of furniture from sticky fingers and pet hair. They are usually quicker and easier to clean than upholstery, particularly if they are machine washable. They are also great to grab on a cooler evening to snuggle up in.
