Choosing the Right Cotton Throw Blanket
Picking just one cotton throw blanket can feel challenging, especially with a range of great options calling your name. But for most of us, your budget would rather you pick one or two by narrowing down your other options. Buying a new blanket doesn't need to be a complicated process, though.
Below, we've highlighted a few tips for figuring out what you want in a blanket. Use the information you gather from each section to find the best cotton blanket for your space.
Color and Pattern
Look to the existing color palette in the room that you’re decorating to decide which colors would be suitable. You’ll want your blanket’s color to go well with the other colors in the space regardless of whether you want it to stand out, blend in, or gently complement. There’s a big difference between a white, grey, black, aqua, cream, pink, red, green, and yellow cotton throw blanket.
Also, think about patterns for your space. If it doesn't have many patterns, consider a chevron or plaid blanket to add visual interest. And solid-color blankets work well for rooms that have a wide range of designs already.
Material and Texture
A 100% cotton throw blanket will be soft, warm, and versatile. You might use it solely as a decoration on your couch, or you might keep it in a basket for the days when you need to take a nap. Consider how you plan to use your blanket to decide what you’re looking for.
For example, if you want to snuggle your new blanket, you might want an organic cotton throw blanket with a soft or fuzzy texture. If you plan to add texture to a rarely used guest bedroom, a woven cotton throw blanket could be an excellent choice. And if you want something more traditional, a cotton afghan throw blanket might be perfect.
Consider where and how you’ll use your cotton throw blanket to decide on the best size. If you have a throw blanket you love, measure it and use it as a size reference when examining your options before you buy. Otherwise, measure the furniture you plan to put or use your cotton blanket with to help pick the right dimensions.
