Irish Home Style – How to Choose the Perfect Duvet Covers
If you want to make a stylistic change in your home, and in particular in your bedrooms, that makes a statement but doesn’t cost the earth, or require too much effort, you should consider investing in new duvet covers. When it comes to homestyle – your duvet covers can work wonders for tying a room together. They can make a bedroom feel complete, add comfort, bring the room to life and even add that touch of luxury you’ve been seeking.
When browsing for the best duvet covers in Ireland, somewhere with a large variety to offer, or a specialist store such as Guineys is the best bet for a wide selection. But then the question is how do you go about making the right decision? This short guide will help you choose the ‘Best Duvet Covers’ for you and your home.
1. Choosing the Right Colours
Let the colour or colours you have used to decorate your bedroom be the guiding light when it comes to choosing the perfect duvet covers. It’s all a matter of personal taste, so there’s no wrong answer – but generally you want to have a colour the compliments the colours on your walls, rather than directly matching them. That is, of course, unless you particularly like the totally cohesive look that you get from bedding and wall colours being the same.
Think about your colour scheme and think about your favourite colours – maybe test the concept with some appropriately coloured blankets or fabric to get a feel for the final look before investing. Don’t be afraid to indulge your true tastes when it comes to colours.
2. Pattern or Plain?
There are so many different bedding styles to choose from – how do you decide whether you should go with a simple solid colour, or a more pronounced pattern?
Again you can let the way your bedroom is currently decorated guide you. If you have simply painted walls, you might find it more rewarding to invest in some bedding that has a more detailed pattern. This will make the pattern really pop, and add quite a visual statement to your room. On the other hand if you have heavily patterned wallpaper, or your bed is up against a feature wall, you might want to think about plain bedding to prevent the two from clashing.
3. Comfort Matters
It’s easy to get lost in the looks of your bedding, but don’t forget that it has a primary practical purpose – to keep you warm and comfortable while you sleep. Whether you want to go for cotton bedding, or maybe flannelette for a little more warmth for example, be sure that your bedding is going to give you the best possible night’s sleep – however it looks.
