Any suggestions on where one would purchase a bedspread for not too much money? Less than $150 would be grand! I want something to cover my bed (including over my pillows) to protect it from cat hair. It would be nice if it looked cute, too. I was looking at this, but I fear it won’t fit in my washer.
Well, Marissa, some of our suggestions are going to be tried-and-true, like Overstock.com, where you can get a washable cotton, down-alternative comforter for the rock-bottom price of just $31.49! If you want to go for more color, these Branches comforter sets (shown above) are quite striking and just about $85. This all natural cotton comforter from Garnet Hill is $115 for king size — the lower profile looks modern and has a better chance of fitting in your washer. For a big boost of color, you can get a Target Home Brites alternative down comforter for $40-60. Also from Target, this Clover down alternative comforter has a slightly more upscale look for just $60-70. As for covering the pillows, think about a comforter a size larger than your bed if you want to assure full coverage. That’s not going to help if you have a king-size bed, of course!
Readers, please let us know in comments if you have additional sources for great, washable comforters.
