Types of Bedspreads

 

Bedspreads are an important piece of any bed set; they keep the users warm during the night, as well as provide a way to decorate a bedroom with a particular color or style scheme.

The first type of bedspread that is popular, especially during winter months, is very thick and filled with either feathers or a synthetic alternative.

These bedspreads keep the user very warm, and the warmth level can be adjusted depending on the type of filling and the thickness of the bedspread. Bedspreads can be used as they come or covered with a decorative cover.

Another type of bedspread is similar to a quilt. It is quite thin but usually made from very thick cotton or wool.  

This type of bedspread can be used as an alternative to a heavier bedspread during the warmer months or used year-round for those who live in warmer climates or do not get as chilly at night.

Many different retailers sell bedspreads at lots of different price points. The first thing you will need to do when you are beginning to shop for a bedspread is to decide what type of bedspread you are looking for. Do you prefer a thick bedspread or one that is thin but made of heavy cotton?

Of course, the next step will be to narrow down the available products by the size of bedspread that you need (California king, standard king, queen, full, or twin). Finally, once you have decided the style of bedspread and the size you need, you can then start looking through the available products for styles and colors that you like.

The first place at which you may want to look for a new bedspread is Bed Bath & Beyond. As a retailer specializing in home goods, they have a large department devoted to bedspreads and comforters. In addition to the selection available in their physical stores, Bed Bath & Beyond also has an extensive website that may offer additional options. Department stores are another option for bedspreads; Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Lord & Taylor all have nice bedding departments with various bedspread options.

If you are looking for a bedspread that is a little less expensive than what may be available at Bed Bath & Beyond and department stores, you should try mass market discount retailers like Target and Wal-Mart, as well as discount home goods stores like Marshalls and Home Goods. Ikea, another discount home furnishing store, also has a department devoted to textiles, including bedspreads.
