​Upcycling & Breathing New Life Into Old Bedding!

What do you do when you’re tired of your old bedding? Some individuals might choose to throw them out or donate them, but we have another option to consider! Before you discard old bedding, you might think about upcycling!

What does it mean to “upcycle”? Upcycling means that you take an item that you no longer want or use and transform it into something that is more useful to you. There are several different ways that you can get creative with upcycling, but also several really simple ways that you can breathe new life into your old bedding.

One of our favorite options is creating a comfy space in your home by filling one of our giant floor cushion covers. Sitting at 36x36x6, you can stuff this cover full of old pillows and comforters for a cozy spot to read, a spot for kids to play, or anything else you can think of! As with most Downlite products, the fabric is easy care. This means that you can remove whatever filling you choose and toss the cover into the wash machine when you need to clean it. The 300 thread count cambric cotton fabric makes this cover soft to the touch as well.

Upcycling isn’t the only reason to use one of our giant floor cushion covers. You can also fill your cover with your favorite comforter and pillows from Downlite! If you ever wanted to create a cozy spot to hang out in your home, you can do so with the peace of mind that they will remain protected against dirt and germs. When you’re done relaxing, simply remove the pillows and comforters and put them back on the bed! You can even toss your easy care cover in the wash machine to take care of any potential stains.

Whether you choose to use one of our giant floor cushion covers to upcycle or multi-task with your favorite hotel bedding, it is the perfect way to create a unique and comfortable space in your home.
