First of all, there are some important issues that we must consider. The first is the design and color. That is, our plaid should combine with the decor of the room in which it is located. This is integrating this add to the look of the room, taking into account both the pattern and color.
And secondly, we must consider also the fabric of our plaid.

You can choose complementary colors or the same color but in different shades. Avoid prints and opt for sleek designs that are easier to combine.
Another possibility is to place a neatly folded plaid on the sidewalk, at the foot of the bed. Or we can cover the lower half of the bed with a plaid whose design matches the rest of the textiles. If we choose a darker colored linens, we will win in textures and create elegant color contrasts.

Natural fiber baskets have become a must-have, all the modern decor. Great order solutions also help us to decorate. Therefore, we recommend placing in plaids in rattan baskets, wicker, etc. You can fill a basket with several perfectly rolled plaids, next to the couch, chair or bed.
In the classroom
Another favorite place of plaids and blankets is the living room. Here we have endless possibilities. One of our favorites is to use the plaid to cover the sofa seats, although this will need a large blanket.
