The simple beauty of a bed covered with a white cotton bedspread can help create a luxurious bedroom look that is both calming and elegant. However, if you own a cat or two, or three, make sure your cats are declawed or that you keep your bedroom door closed at all times. Cats have a tendency to knead on bedding which causes snags and pilling of the fabric which will mar the aesthetic value of your bedspread.

Of course, white gets dirty quicker than other colors. Or rather, it shows dirt more.
