A warm and cozy throw or a blanket is a thing that everybody absolutely loves. It helps you during the cold winter days, o when you are feeling sick and feverish and just lying in bed having shivers. It is also a great thing to give as a gift. If you are still not convinced that you certainly must own one, today we are sharing five reasons why everyone should own at least one warm blanket.
Let’s start with the obvious, blankets will keep you warm and in an emergency situation, sitting underneath and on top of blankets when there is no heat at all can quite literally save your life. Having more blankets means you can care for extra people as well – your neighbors, family and friends who come to visit, etc.
Livestock, and in some cases pets, occasionally need bedding beyond just wood chips or straw. Blankets can be a just as much a lifesaver for them as they are for humans. Keep several blankets in the shed or outbuildings specifically for animal bedding. At worst, they get destroyed and can’t be used again, but most likely they can be washed and re-used multiple times.
When rooftop gardens became popular, keeping a garden became an important part of lives of many people, not only the ones living in the countryside. And a late spring or early fall frost can destroy your plants quickly. In order to protect your plants from the frost keep extra blankets especially for that. When the weather forecast looks threatening, toss the blankets over sensitive plants to protect them from the damaging effects of frost.
Blankets can be useful not only for people or animals, but for things as well. Blankets can help protect couches or chairs that are easily soiled and difficult to clean. On top of that, you can also use blankets to cover the cold wooden or laminate floor so your feet would not feel cold anymore.
Finally, blankets and throws are a great interior detail. They can make your room look particularly cozy. Blankets and throws can make your bed or sofa look not only cozy but also very inviting and luxurious. They are perfect for any occasion, weather it is a late dinner on a terrace in the summer or just a cozy evening by the fireplace in the winter.
