Bedspread or Duvet

image image image


There are so many ways to layer and dress a bed. Some of our customers love bedspreads and blankets while others prefer a quilt and duvet cover. 
It’s all about personal preference. Duvets covers with a lofty quilt are perfect for the popular relaxed bed while a contemporary or traditional throwover bedspread creates a clean edged, formal look.


Bedspreads
A bedspread is the general name given to bed covers intended for use as the top layer on a bed. Bedspreads can be both decorative and warming, thick or lighter weight, in a variety of fabric. They are generally used alone, with only a sheet and blankets plus any additional decorative layering.

Comforters
Thick and sometimes quilted, comforters are filled with layers of material including polyester batting (a synthetic fiber), down feathers, wool or silk. The loft (thickness) of the filling determines the weight as well as the level of insulation. 
Comforters are stitched or quilted to secure the filling and ensure that it is evenly distributed. They are intended to be used like a bedspread however they generally only sit on top of the bed as opposed to a traditoinal bedspread that reaches the floor. Comforters are generally loftier and smaller in size than a Coverlet.

Coverlets
A coverlet is a lightweight, non-reversible bedspread that is usually either quilted or woven. Classically designed as a decorative layer to go over thicker bedspreads, coverlets often have a thin layer of batting, making them appropriate for use as a stand-alone bed covering, depending on the weight.

Duvets & Covers
A duvet or quilt is essentially a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers or a synthetic alternative. A cover is recommended much like a pillow and pillow case. Duvets and duvet covers can be used alone (with no sheets) because the insert can be removed and the cover can be laundered, or used with both a top and fitted sheet.
The Bedspread Shop has a varied range of duvet cover styles
