When you choose bedding, make sure you choose cotton. Our sleep experts tell you why.

It’s so frustrating when you’ve been tossing and turning all night. You wake up feeling groggy, stay groggy the entire day, make bad choices when it comes to food, and you ache to just get back to bed.

An easy way to ensure you get a good night’s sleep is to make your bed the most comfortable. Other than the size, the mattress and the pillows, making sure you have a bedspread, quilt and pillow covers made from cotton is essential. When it comes to your bedding, cotton is the absolute best. We tell you why.

It lets your skin breathe

cotton bedding

When we sleep, our body temperature increases. We sweat at night. You know that feeling when you wake up in the middle of the night feeling hot, sticky and yucky. Ugh. You don’t want that. Cotton bedding helps because cotton is a natural fabric. This means that it lets your skin breathe. Cotton absorbs heat from your body during the night, making sure you stay cool and dry. Cotton bedding is also the best for winters because it keeps you warm by retaining your body heat.

It lasts longer

Blue Cotton Quilted Bedspread

High quality cotton may cost you more, but it’s cheaper in the long run. Because it has a longer lifespan. Cotton is a strong, durable material. You can use it for years. Not replacing your bedding frequently saves you money. And lowers your cost-per-use. Also, cotton becomes softer with use. So good quality cotton bedding is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Lower chances of bacteria and allergies

Manmade materials have a higher chance of collecting dust, bacteria and allergies. Synthetic materials like polyester attract more dust and hair, and can irritate sensitive skin. With cotton, you have a much lower chance of bacteria causing allergic reactions since it’s hypoallergenic. It’s great especially if you or your children have sensitive skin.

Wash and go

washing bedding

Cotton bedding is super easy to wash and use again. Just throw it in the washing machine and you’re good to go! This makes it a low-maintenance item that doesn’t need a lot of care and instructions. It’s one thing less to worry about! Make sure you wash your cotton bedding alone and not with other clothes. If you’d like, iron with a steam iron to get a few creases out.

It feels so good!

We saved the best for the last- there’s no better feeling than freshly washed cotton sheets. Cotton feels so great against the skin. It makes you feel relaxed and happy. And that’s exactly how you want to feel when you get under the covers each night, after a long stressful day.

At Quilting Tree, all of our quilts and bedcovers are made of 100% cotton. All of them are handmade in India. Because you deserve the best. Check out our massive collection at AllHomeLiving.com, pick your favourite, and get it delivered to your doorstep. Happy zzz’s!


Over time, your speakers will gather dirt and dust. If you’ve got kids, their sticky hands could make your speakers grimy. And you want to clean them, but you have to be careful. They’re not like other items of furniture or decor in your home. You can’t ask the bai to pocha maro them.

You have to use the right tools and clean different parts of your speaker correctly. No one wants to damage their expensive speakers and soundbars

For your convenience, in this article, we lay out a few things you can do to clean your speakers the right way. To make sure they look great, AND sound great. So read this to know how to clean different parts of your speakers.

What You Need

Here are a few things you’ll need to properly clean your speakers:

  • 2 microfiber cloths
  • A can of air
  • A lint roller
  • Warm water

Before you start, switch off and unplug your speakers.

  1. Using your can of air, blow away dirt and dust on the outside and inside of the speaker case.
  2. Wipe down the entire outside and inside of your speakers with a damp microfiber cloth. Use warm water and apply gentle pressure when wiping.
  3. Using the dry microfiber cloth, go back over the same area and dry the speaker.
  4. Now use your lint roller to wipe the grill. This will remove any dirt, grime or pet hair that’s stuck.
  5. Give the speakers some time to dry. It shouldn’t take too long as we didn’t use a lot of water. Make sure they’re totally dry before plugging in and turning them on. 

lint roller for speaker

Remember to never use harsh chemicals on your speakers. They could damage both the case and the electronics. 

How often you should clean your speakers

Speakers don’t accumulate dirt and dust like other furnishings. It’s okay to dust them off once a week, or once in two weeks. A light dusting using a microfiber cloth or a feather duster won’t hurt them. 

Cleaning the speaker cabinets

Your speaker cabinets can be made of different materials like MDF or vinyl. When cleaning them, always use a cleaner designed for that material. Avoid using all-purpose cleaners whenever possible. 

You can use two soft, lint-free cloths to clean the speaker. Keep one cloth clean and dry. Dampen the other with the cleaning solution. Start by testing your cleaner in an area you can’t see. If everything goes well, go ahead and clean the rest of the speaker. Wipe the entire cabinet down with the damp cloth,then use the clean cloth to dry it. Leave it for a few minutes to dry completely before reconnecting it to the system.

Cleaning the grills

Like the cabinets, always make sure you use a cleaner that’s appropriate for the material of your grill. Your grill could be fabric, metal, or even plastic. In most speakers, the grill will pop off the front. If your grill is made of fabric, remove it and lay it flat on the ground. Using a vacuum cleaner with a dust attachment, suck up all the dust and then replace the grill. If the grill is made of metal or plastic, you can use a cleaner designed for the material. Or even soap and water. Just make sure the grill’s dry before you replace it.

Cleaning the connectors

The connectors on your speakers are made of strong material, but that doesn’t mean they won’t need a little cleaning every now and then. In most cases, they’ll just need dust removed from them so nothing interferes with the connections. For this, use your can of compressed air to blow the dust off. You can also use a little alcohol and a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe them clean.

Cleaning the cones

This is the trickiest bit when cleaning speakers, as the cones can be made of very delicate material. It’s easy to punch a hole in them when you’re cleaning. Use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust or dirt. For a deeper clean, use a makeup brush and gently brush away any dirt that the air couldn’t take care of.

Final thoughts

A few times a year, try to give your speakers a deep spring clean. This will make sure they look great and function exactly as you expect them to. And with the right tools, it’s easy to do and will only take a few minutes of your time.By looking after your speakers, you ensure they stay in good shape and deliver great sound for many years to come.

 We break down what you need to know before choosing wall decor.

What you display on your walls can elevate your room’s decor, or make the entire room feel off. Here are a few tips from our interior designers on making sure you pick the right wall art design for your walls. Here are few wall art decor ideas. Ideas for wall art can always be creative and exciting which purely depends upon your liking and taste.

The size of the wall

metal wall art

How big the wall is will be the first factor you have to consider before choosing what wall art to display. A bigger wall will mean that you can either display one large piece of art, or a collection of pieces. They can even be in different sizes. A small wall may be more restrictive. One medium sized piece or a row of 3 will suit smaller walls better

The Aesthetic of the room

Look at what furnishings are in the room. You’ll want to follow the same theme for your wall art, otherwise the room will feel cluttered. Pick a design element in the room and find something that matches that. It’ll pull the entire room together. And if the wall has any furniture resting against it, make sure what you hang above it goes with the furniture. Be creative in your wall art ideas when planning something for the wall.

Type of wall art 

black and white monochrome wall art

Don’t limit yourself to wall art paintings. You can choose from metal paintings, 3D metal art, canvas prints and more. And don’t forget that an oversized clock looks amazing as wall art. And if nothing else works, mirrors are the answer. Mirrors like the ones in the AHL collection aren’t just for your reflection. They come in intricate and unique designs, so they serve as pieces of beauty. And of course, they go with all types of wall decor themes. 

Mix n Match

How many speakers you need for your home, lifestyle and other scenarios ?

There are so many different types of speakers, surround sound systems, home theatre systems, bluetooth and wireless speakers. The Home Tech division at All Home Living boasts a massive collection of speakers from international brands. Looking through our range itself might overwhelm you. (Sorry, not sorry?).  

So what’s the right number of speakers for each room you will need? Our sound experts break it down. 

Movies and Television In Your Living Room

living room speakers

Television shows and movies today almost always feature surround sound. This means that to get that authentic sound and experience a full cinematic experience of movies, you’ll need more speakers for a home theatre experiance. Your best bet is a home theatre system with a full surround sound system, like the Dali Oberon 5 & 3 (5.1 System) with AVR. Because these home theatre packages have left and right speakers for both the front and the back, a centre channel speaker, and a subwoofer for low notes. This way you can be sure that you enjoy your movies and TV shows to the fullest. 

Music In Your Bedroom or Hall

in wall speaker

To enjoy your favourite music in its full clarity and glory, we recommend at least two speakers in your room. This is because some tracks make use of both channels- right and left. On-wall speakers are great for music as they provide high-quality sound without cluttering up your decor. They’re meant for medium to large rooms, and they disappear into your space. We love the Focal Aria SR 900 – On Wall Speaker (Pair).

You may also want to add a subwoofer into the mix to really feel that deep bass. If you have a larger room, you can add a second pair of left and right speakers, like the JBL Stage A 120 – Bookshelf Speaker (Pair). This will ensure the entire room’s drenched in sound. 

Parties In Outdoor Spaces 

If you’re having an outdoor party on your terrace or in your garden, you want your guests to hear the music clearly without it being too loud. A standard two speaker system won’t be enough. Especially if the area is big and you want the music to reach all corners. 

floor standing speakersWe recommend a minimum of four floor-standing speakers placed strategically around the party area. This will ensure your guests can hear the music without it being super loud in one particular area. And if you have a dance floor outside, (you lucky thing, you) keep your speakers close to it as you’ll want the most sound concentrated in this area.

Bluetooth/ Wifi Speakers & Headphones For Smaller Rooms & Travel

bluetooth speaker

For the rest of your house or for when you’re travelling, you want a speaker that’s powerful yet easy to carry. You can carry a portable Bluetooth speaker like the Dali Katch or the Denon Envaya Pocket DSB-50BT Bluetooth Speaker that can play music in any room of your home or your hotel room. And of course, make sure you have your favourite pair of wireless headphones for when you’re travelling. Or for when you’re out of doors and just want to shut the world out. 

Final Thoughts

So the number of  speakers you need will depend on the sizes of your rooms, how often you listen to music and watch TV, and how particular you are about your sound. And let’s not forget- your budget. 

And because we know just how unique you can be, we carry a wide variety of speakers in every category- from sound bars to ceiling speakers to integrated stereo amplifiers. From top-notch brands from all over the world

With these steps from our interior design experts, getting your balcony to look like the ones you covet on Pinterest is as easy as 1-2-3! 

Let’s all agree, it’s the Age Of The Balcony. The lockdowns made balconies the most important place of our homes. They’re the best way we can feel like we’re outside without having to step out of the house. 

And because of this, a lot of us redecorated our balconies. We stopped looking at them as a place to store old things and started looking at them as a vital part of the house. We made them look cozier, prettier. A space where we can spend a lot of time. 

balcony decor

At All Home Living, we’ve always thought that balconies are one of the most important places in the home. Done up right, they can function as many things. A home office, a garden, or just a cozy outdoor space to spend some downtime. And the size of the balcony doesn’t matter. Like any other interior space, it’s how you decorate it

In this article, our interior design experts show you the steps to make your balcony your favourite space of your home. 

Step 1: Make the Floor Comfortable

The problem with balconies is that the floor becomes dusty too fast. Then you don’t feel like stepping out into your balcony. It remains unused and a place to store old things. 

grass balcony

So then, your first step should be to make your balcony’s floor comfortable and clean, like the rooms of your home. You can either put fake grass as a full carpet in the balcony, or you can add rugs. The fake grass will make the space look green and vibrant. The rugs will make it look warm and cozy

rug balcony

Try a rug from Quilting Tree. They’re made of pure cotton, they’re machine washable, and they have sticky pads under to make sure they stay in place. Once your balcony’s floor is sorted and easy-to-clean, you’ll find yourself stepping into your balcony more and more. 

Step 2: Magical Lighting

Your balcony needs to be usable at night, not just during the daytime when there’s plenty of light. And lit up with beautiful lights, your balcony will be a joy not just to you, but to anyone outside your building, looking at your balcony. 

 lighting

To light it up for the coziest ambience, we suggest hanging pendant lights from the ceiling. These will not just light up the balcony for relaxing evenings, but also look amazing. If it’s not possible to hang pendant lights, keep one or two big table lamps on a small console table. Hand Blown Murano glass pendant lights and lamps will add colour and beauty to your balcony. Make sure you have bulbs with warm yellow light in the pendant lights or lamps.

fairy lights

Once you’ve taken care of the major light source, you can think of decorating the balcony with fairy lights. This will add a magical touch to the space.

 

Step 3: Decorate!

Now that you’ve got the floor and the lighting sorted, it’s time to make your balcony as unique as you are. Remember that furniture is not just for your rooms. You can add furniture to your balcony, too! 

A comfortable armchair in one corner if you have the space. And a coffee table in front of it so you can have your tea or coffee while watching the sunset. Here’s a tip- use mirrored furniture because this will be the easiest to clean dust off of. 

decorAdd furnishings and decorations to your balcony once you’ve added seating. A wall mirror will make the space feel bigger than it is. Plants will make it look lively. Place pretty cushions on the armchair and on the floor. 

The Last Step That No one Thinks Of: Add a speaker! Whether it’s a wireless bluetooth speaker, wall speakers, or floor speakers, you’ll transform your balcony into a wonderful haven with your favourite music filling the space. 

And there you go! You have a stunning balcony done up in no time. It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Make sure you add a few of our pieces from the Talisman Collection. Because you know, nazar na lage! 

 


Top factors to consider when choosing bedspreads and quilts for yourself and your loved ones.

In one of our recent articles, we talked about how a few tweaks to your home decor can aid in better sleep. Because like food, sleep is one of those essentials that contributes majorly to living well. When you sleep better, you function better. You’re happier, you make better decisions, and what’s more, you look good. Then, what you sleep on is one of the most important furnishing items in your bedroom. Because that has a direct impact on your seven hour REM sleep.

The design experts at All Home Living know the value and importance of good sleep, which is why we have a dedicated brand for bedding and furnishing called Quilting Tree. Keep reading to know how you can make better choices when choosing your bedding, and why the right bedding makes the perfect gift, too.

Bedding Material

When choosing your bedding, the first thing to look at is the material. Make sure you’re choosing bed linens in natural material. 100% cotton sheets are the safest because cotton is a breathable fabric with low chances of allergies. Man-made materials like poly cotton attract more dust and can cause skin allergies as they have chemicals in the material.

At Quilting Tree, all our quilts, bedspreads and pillow covers are made from 100% cotton, handcrafted in India, to make sure they’re healthy and safe. This means that you get a restful sleep because you have a natural cotton sheet under you. And you’re covering yourself with a comfortable, fluffy quilt, which is all natural and lets your skin breathe at night.

When To Change Your Bedsheets 

It’s important to change your sheets and pillow covers regularly. An average pillow can have more than 350,000 potentially live bacteria colonies on them. Change your 100% cotton sheets anywhere between one to two weeks.

washing

If you’re not using 100% cotton bed linen, then you should be washing them every week, if not twice. Using the same sheets for a longer period of time without washing can give rise to toxic bacteria that can make you sick.

Did you know that because Quilting Tree bedspreads are made of unadulterated cotton grown in India, the sheets get softer with each wash? And those fluffier cotton sheets feel so good!

Styling Your Bed

It’s not just about how your bedding feels, but about how your bed looks. Because your bed is the focal point of your bedroom’s interiors. The bedding you choose affects how your bedroom looks and feels, and how YOU feel. Let your choice of bedding reflect your unique personality and taste. So when you go to bed or even enter your bedroom, you breathe a sigh of contentment at the sight of your gorgeous bed.

To satisfy every type of Indian out there. From elegant solid colours to pretty florals to luxury quilts to simple manly prints and patterns, choose what makes you happy.

The Price Factor 

Of course, price is one of the main factors in choosing a bedspread and quilt set. Maybe you find high quality bedding, or Quilting Tree bedding to be on the pricier side. But remember that buying good quality sheets which you use every single day, is not an expense. It’s an investment.

Because of your cost-per-use. You’ll be using your bed linens for several nights a year. Maybe 100, maybe 200 nights a year. Your per night cost is very low. You get better sleep, and that luxury hotel feeling every single night. Now that’s worth a lot!
