Picking a Perfect Blue Throw Blanket
Finding the right blue throw blanket for your space can be challenging. You might want to buy all the blankets that catch your eye, but what if you only have the budget for one or two? With a bit of thought about your home and decor, you can narrow down your options to make picking a perfect fit much easier.
We’ve highlighted some of our favorite tips for choosing the right blanket below. Keep reading if you’d like some help finding the right blue blanket for your home:
Color and Pattern
There’s a big difference between a navy blue, light blue, royal blue, and baby blue throw blanket. Each one comes with its own character, and they’ll work well with different color palettes. Look at the existing colors in your room to help pick the right shade for your design.
Patterns and color combinations throw more options into the mix. For example, a gray and blue plaid throw blanket will look different than a solid blue-gray throw blanket. And if you have to pick between a yellow and blue, green and blue, pink and blue, or gold and blue throw blanket, you’ll want to consider your space’s complete color palette to make the right choice.
Material and Texture
Wool, cotton, synthetic, polyester, and natural fibers are just some of many used to create beautiful, soft throw blankets. Some come with a braided texture, others are faux fur, and many have tassels. You'll likely identify different preferences for your future blanket's material and texture based on your space and how you plan to use your new throw.
For example, if you love the feel of wool on your skin and you plan to cuddle with your blanket, this might be a great option. And if you need it to stand up to heavy use, pets, or children, a synthetic or cotton blanket might be better for your home.
Before you buy your blue throw blanket, check the dimensions to make sure it's the right size for where and how you plan to use it. It can help if you measure the piece of furniture where you will use and display your blue blanket for size comparison. A blanket for the back of a small chair doesn’t need to be as large as one meant for two people to cuddle up under.
