14 Types of Blankets You Can Always Use At Your House

You can definitely use plenty of different types of blankets at your house and that definitely means trying out different ones

If you look around, what’s one of the things you see in several rooms of your house? Probably blankets, right? You have one or two in the living room. They’re in the bedrooms. They might even be in the playroom or even left behind in the kitchen where you children dropped them. But choosing a blanket isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. There are so many types of blankets and you never know what your children (or other family) are going to like.

Many Types of Blankets for Your Bed

The truth is, there are far too many types of blankets to even think about. But we’re going to give it a try.

Quilt – A quilt is a handmade blanket that uses different types of fabrics. You can use cotton or even pieces of denim. If you want a thin quilt you can sew the pieces directly together. If you want some warmth you can sew a piece of batting in the middle to help.

Duvet – This is actually a type of blanket you might put on your bed. It takes the place of a comforter in most cases because it’s usually about as thick (though it doesn’t have to be). These blankets actually zip apart, however, and you can pull the batting out so it can be washed separately (like you would with a pillowcase).

Comforter – This is the standard when it comes to types of blankets to put on your bed. It’s usually the top layer because it’s warm and they come in a variety of patterns, styles, and sizes. They’re usually filled with some type of natural or synthetic material to get the warmth.

Types of Blankets for Your House

Throw Blanket – These are generally going to be light but there are some that are heavier as well. The blanket itself is used for those occasions when you’re just a little bit cold in your home. They could be made with fleece or other fabrics but they’re usually larger than a typical fleece blanket.

Fleece Blankets – These are usually thin and somewhat small. You usually don’t put one on your bed but you use it sort of like a throw blanket when you’re a little bit cold on the couch or in other rooms of the house. These are soft, but they’re not really going to help you bundle up when it gets too cold.

Afghan – Another type of throw blanket, these are actually knitted or crocheted blankets that are made with some type of yarn. A lot of people make these for their families and they are often found on the back of couches or chairs. Of course, they’re not super warm because they’re full of holes.

Security Blankets – If you have children you probably know all about security blankets. That’s because small children especially love them. These may be full-size blankets but they may also be smaller pieces of cloth that a child loves to keep with them or that makes them feel comfortable. These types of blankets can definitely be found anywhere in the house.

Of course, there are plenty of other types of blankets that you may find or use. They can also be used just about anywhere and by anyone (including the smallest members of your household).
