No one can resist the comfort and attractiveness of a great knit throw. However, once you have purchased a throw, you may find yourself wondering what to do with it. Do you throw it aimlessly on the back of your couch or drape it carefully over the arm of your favorite oversized recliner? The great thing about a knit throw is that it is extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways. Here are a few ideas for decorating with that beautiful knit throw that you recently purchased.
Beauty and Function
If you are the type of person who prefers both function and beauty, then you can use your knit throw to protect the seat cushions of your favorite chairs. This is a great idea if you have pets or young kids that like to climb on your chairs and you want to keep the fabric safe and protected. Simply fold the throw lengthwise, then drape it over your chair so that it covers the seat and back.
Add Some Personality to Your Headboard
If your headboard is currently boring and plain, you can drape a beautiful knit throw over the top of it to add a bit of personality and a sense of relaxation to your bedroom. Having a throw on your headboard serves the added purpose of providing extra warmth on a particularly cold evening.
Create a Casual Style
If you want your front room to look casual and comfortable, you can help to achieve your goal by carelessly draping a throw over the back of a chair or sofa. For a truly casual look, make sure you don’t drape it over the center of the chair, but choose the right or the left side instead. This will help to make the placement look unplanned and natural.
Guest Room Comfort
If you have guests visiting, you can make them feel more at-home by placing a folded knit throw across the bottom of their bed, on top of the bedding. The simple comfort of a knit throw can make any guest feel more at-ease in unfamiliar surroundings and can make the bedroom space feel more personable and welcoming.
Make a Chaise Lounge More Inviting
Chaise lounges often look bare and uninviting, but if you drape a warm throw over the corner of your chaise, it will suddenly look much more appealing and comforting. If your chaise lounge doesn’t get a lot of use, simply add an attractive knit throw and your lounge might become one of the most comfortable resting places in your house. For the most inviting look, be sure to drape your throw in an informal and casual way across the back or corner of your chaise.
If you have pets or kids, then you know how difficult it can be to keep your furniture looking spotless and new. If you find that one of your sofas has mysteriously developed a marker stain, or if your cat has used the back of your favorite chair as a scratching post, you can cover up the area with an attractive throw until you have the time and budget to replace the damaged furniture.
Whether you are looking for comfort, function, or aesthetic appeal, a knit throw is versatile enough to meet your needs.
