Today we will talk about the types of bedspreads for the bedroom. About how to choose design, color and style. And also look at the photo in the interior.
The bedspread prevents dust from accumulating on bed linen. You can lie on it without changing clothes. In addition, when you are not at home, it protects the bed from pets who love to sleep on the master’s bed.
In addition, it is the bedspread that creates the main mood in the bedroom. Because the bed is the central element of the interior.
Since the main task of the bedspread comes down to decorative and protective functions, any fabric can be used for it. The main thing is that it withstands frequent washing, does not wrinkle and retains an attractive appearance for a long time.
This is true for studio apartments, where the bed is constantly in sight. A bedspread helps hide bedding from prying eyes and compensates for minor flaws if you made your bed in a hurry.
If outsiders are not allowed to enter your bedroom, then the bedspread can easily combine the function of a blanket and a blanket. In this case, it is better to give preference to natural fabrics that easily absorb moisture and allow the body to breathe.
To reconcile the aesthetic and the practical, designers often use two-layer models, in which the back is made of cotton or wool, and the front is made of synthetic fibers that do not wrinkle and are easy to clean.
So, what list of fabrics and materials do modern designers offer?
- Cotton. Great for double-sided and summer models.
- Linen. An ideal solution for eco-style rooms, as well as interiors decorated in the spirit of Provence, Country, etc.
- Wool is typical for Scandinavian motifs.
- Fur is good for the same Scandinavia, Chalet, eclecticism.
- Artificial fiber fits perfectly into modern interiors in the spirit of modern, hi-tech, loft and urban.
Since the beds of different models have one or two backs, the cut of the bedspread for them will be different. In one case, it is required to close three sides of the bed, and in the other, only two.
It also matters how the bed is located in the bedroom. When there is an approach to it from both sides, the coverlet descends symmetrically along the sides of the bed.
If the bed is built into a block of furniture and pushed up to the wall, then it is better to opt for a model that simply covers the mattress.
So, what options can be found in domestic stores?
- Full size for a bed without a footboard. Measure the width of the bed, add to this size 3 cm for a free fit. Also measure the length with an allowance of 3 cm. Then determine how many centimeters on each side from the surface of the mattress to the floor. Add this value twice to the width and once to the length. That’s all. You can go shopping.
- Full size for a bed with a footboard. In this case, the increase in height is done only for the width.
- Hotel type. In this case, only part of the bed is closed up to the pillows. In this case, you need decorative “daytime” pillowcases that come with the bedspread.
- Double layer. The top is made of decorative synthetic fabric. And the lower part is made of natural fibers.
- Bilateral. Both the bottom and top side can serve as a “face”. They may vary in color or pattern. If you just turn the bedspread over and put it on the other side, then the room will sparkle with new colors. And your mood will change.
- Three-layer. Between the lower and upper part of the cut there is a soft volumetric filler like holofiber, synthetic fluff, etc. In this case, minor flaws in the dressing of the bed will be securely hidden by the soft volume of the top sheet.
- With glimpses. The finished product consists of a rectangular piece of the size of the mattress, framed by a wide border of the same material or fabric in a contrasting color. Yes, rustic valances are back in fashion in a modified state. Moreover, looking at these beautiful sophisticated models, you can’t say that their roots go back to rural life.
- With frills. Full-size bedspreads or models with valances are often decorated with frills and ruffles.
- Track. You probably saw a contrasting color track over the main bedspread in hotel rooms. It has purely aesthetic value. Sewing it is very easy. And having one main cover, you can lay multi-colored paths on top of it. In this case, every day your bed will have a new look. At the most modest cost.
- Composite. In one model, 3 or more fabrics are combined. They may differ in color, texture and composition.
Since the whole interior should look like one whole project, the color scheme of the bedspread logically fits into the overall style and palette of the room.
There are many color combination options. Consider the most common schemes.
- The color of the curtains. A set of textiles for windows and beds is a common technique. However, you should not sew it from the same fabric. It is better to choose companion fabrics. For example, when the curtains are plain, and the bedspread is covered with some kind of ornament. Or this ornament is made in the same color as the curtains.
- In the color of the walls. This combination is well suited when in a small bedroom you need to “disguise” the dimensions of the double bed. In this case, light shades are usually selected that echo the pattern on the wallpaper. The design solution looks interesting when the section of the wall at the head is painted in a contrasting color. This bright stripe can flow to the ceiling. In this case, the bed becomes part of this rapid flow.
- Companion shade. Designed to make friends different colors in the interior. The central element serves as the key piece of the puzzle. For example, peach curtains, turquoise paintings and purple vases will combine a chocolate bedspread with a creamy ornament.
- Contrast. In the case when the base of the interior is monochrome, bright textiles enliven the picture. A very convenient solution. Because it is enough to change the bedspread, the rug by the bed, the curtains, and the room will become unrecognizable.
The main rule when choosing colors is to choose a large print for a spacious bedroom, for a room with modest dimensions, the pattern should be smaller.
As mentioned just above, modern style favors certain colors and textures. For example, Scandinavian trends are characterized by the use of fur and wool.
The color scheme is rich in white. Bright hues are included as small accents. These can be thin stripes, amorphous shapes, etc. A prerequisite – all this diversity should be surrounded by a large number of white shades. Like fruit chunks in yogurt.
Provence and Mediterranean style is a combination of blue, green, gray. These are all kinds of shades of the sea. With an admixture of bright sun, sand, citrus fruits and delicate green meadows.
Africa may be different. But she is always bright and unforgettable. It is the color of ocher, clay, spices and savannah. As for textiles, it is mostly bright colors. Although, you can also find samples of calm tones that can be obtained with natural staining. These are muted shades of green, brown. White textiles are not welcome, because they are considered mourning.
The Moroccan direction is especially interesting. It is characterized by graceful ornaments on textiles, inspired by the Muslim tradition.
Technological design trends, despite their asceticism, still prefer natural fabrics. However, synthetics can be used, and sometimes necessary.
Shabby Chic is the realm of roses, frills, lush folds and frills. Delicate pastel colors will come in handy here.
Whatever style the room is made in, the bedspread serves as a key element that unites all other parts into one harmonious picture.
