5 Types of Bed Covers

What do you need after a long tiring day? Good food and a comfortable bed to lay on? Of course, but laying on the bed can only be relaxing if you have the right type of bed cover. Some can be ideal for your back, while some cannot. You can pick your ideal one from many different beds covers that add a touch of style to your room and comfort to your body. Let us have a brief look at the types of bed covers available in the market:

1. Coverlet

A coverlet is often an overlooked type of bed cover. At times, people own it but are not aware of it. A coverlet is a bed cover placed over the bed sheet and underneath the duvet. It covers the space where the mattress and the bed frame meet. Coverlets are smaller than the bedspreads and larger than the standard blankets that people usually use.

Coverlet gives your bed a modern look. You can leave them untucked and just allow them to lie over the bed sheet giving a relaxed, cozy look. Or you can tuck them with the bedsheet and feel a tailored vibe. 

A coverlet is basically a thin bedding material that often comes pre-filled. You can use these covers all year long to keep you warm. And as they are softer, thin, and lightweight, they are quite suitable to use in summers. 

2. Bedspreads

Bedspreads are decorative bed covers placed over the bed sheet or the top sheet. A bedspread will give your bed a traditional look. So, if you want to preserve the old-school traditional vibes, then you can go for a bedspread. Bedspreads are thin and decorative bed coverings. These covers are less common as today people upgrade their decor to more modern styles rather than traditional.

3. Quilt

Quilt is a commonly used bed cover with three layers stitched together. Those three layers are the top, batting, and backing. Here, the top layer is made by a series of complex stitches. These stitches conjoin different fabrics together. Now, this unique stitching is called quilting. It is an age-old form of art.

The inner batting layer consists of the filling. This filing is of wool, cotton, or feathers. And the bottom layer or the backing is of thick fabric. All the layers are then put together by stitching. Quilt offers additional warmth and comfort during winters. It also comes under the most common types of bed covers.

4. Duvet

Duvet protectors are fluffy bed covers filled with synthetic fibers or feathers like a comforter. However, duvets are fluffier than comforters. Moreover, comforters are stitched while duvets are not and come with protective duvet covers.

Duvet covers are removable but not machine-washable. One needs to dry-clean it. Duvets are a perfect replacement for blankets and top sheets. If you find it difficult to make your bed with different pieces of bedding, then a duvet can make your life easier. With a duvet, you do not need a separate top sheet and a blanket.

Additionally, a duvet with a duvet cover delivers the warmth and comfort you want after a long tiring day. Also, talking about comfort, some of us like working in bed on a cozy day. So, this cover supports the over bed table too. Also, Duvet protectors look extraordinarily stylish and trendy. So, if you are planning to give a modernized touch to your bedroom, you should definitely go for a duvet.
