Transform Your Bedroom With Fine Linens


Visitors: 268

A bedroom makeover with fine linens is a great alternative to the full interior design projects seen in decorating magazines and a step up from linen and things. But not many have an interior designer’s expertise or someone else do the leg room of running all over town to find specialty linens.

Instead they cross their fingers and hope the colors will work or that the bed sheet’s thread count really is what the label says it is. And your fingertips can tell the difference between fine linens, (it's called ‘the hand of a fabric') and cheaper knockoffs that are blends of combed cotton and synthetics.

The market for bedding, linen and bath accessories by specialty household furnishing stores has grown significantly with the recent housing boom. These customers have disposable income, a passion for luxury in their homes, and the need for design direction to recreate the interior styles they see in design magazines. The real art of interior design is helping these customers figure out what they really want, what will work, and what is affordable.

Limited design projects may be your ticket. You can easily accomplish a bedroom makeover - for instance sheets, duvet cover, shams, and punch it up with tossed pillows to match your rugs. You can even do a custom headboard or a window treatment with drapes that fits your style and budget.

The effect will be dramatic but it doesn’t set you back a lot because you can choose designer fabrics that fit your budget. If you want 1,020 thread count sheets, they’re at your fingertips. Ask for proof of authenticity of the long staple cotton.
