What Houzz contributors are saying:
What is GSM in a blanket?GSM refers to grams per square metre. When you’re out shopping, GSM suggests the amount of fibre used in the blanket. The higher the GSM, the warmer the blanket. Quality checkSpeaking of quality in blankets, Kate Pascoe Squires, director of Kate & Kate textile company says, “You can really feel a good quality textile in your hands – if it feels beautiful, it usually will be. If it’s flimsy, thin or shiny, you know it’s not going to last. Be prepared for balling and pills after the first wash. Good-quality natural fibres will wash beautifully and offer you a gorgeous product for years to come.”
If you’d like your blanket box to do double duty, however, and you have the space for it, why not incorporate a comfy, upholstered bench seat at the end of your bed, with space inside for heavy blankets and bulky bedlinen. This keeps things neat and tidy, and also gives you a space to sit and read, when you’re not quite ready for bed, as well as a place to sit and put on or take off your shoes.
8. Supersize bedroom basicsBlessed with a big bedroom? Opt for oversized furniture in fine finishes, such as silk, velvet and leather, for hotel-at-home luxe. Think large matching lamps, big bedside tables, a huge bedhead and an equally impressive blanket box. Consider the overall scale of your space, looking at the wall that will house the bed and working with the width and height available there.Boutique hotel style for your bedroom
