WHAT IS A QUILT?
The term quilt comes with lots of nostalgic connotations in addition to defining a type of bedding. A traditional quilt has three layers: top, inner batting, and bottom. The layers are then stitched together across the entirety of the cover. The stitching is a signature part of quilts.
Today, inexpensive quilts are generally made with sewing machines, not by hand, and the patterns are sometimes dyed onto the fabric instead of pieced together with fabric scraps. They are perfect for summer use or as winter toppers with blankets/comforters underneath, and also look great folded at the end of a bed.
Quilts are ideal for any master bedroom, kids’room, or guest room. A quilt is a gorgeous finishing touch for a bedding set of sheets, a blanket, and even a bed duvet, especially in cooler months. In the summer, stick to just the quilt as your top layer to enjoy the beauty of its design year-round.
WHAT IS A COMFORTER?
A comforter is defined as a one-piece bed topper filled with down or a synthetic substitute. They are sewn-through or quilted to keep the filling in place, but unlike a quilt, a comforter’s stitching is not ornately patterned. Comforters are usually warm enough to use without a blanket underneath. Often, you’ll find comforters sold as a comforter set with matching shams.
As part of a bedding set, you can find a wide selection of bedding sets with comforters for kid’s rooms if you’re on a tight budget.
HOW TO CHOOSE A QUILT OR COMFORTER?
Do you prefer lighter covers? Are you a hot or cold sleeper? It all comes down to your personal choice and preferences. If you have allergies or asthma, that should also be taken into consideration.
PICK YOUR SIZE
- Firstly, you’ll need a comforter that’s the right size for your bed. And that quilt needs to be just right to work on your bed. For example, if you have a king sized bed, you could pick out a king size quilt. In order to complete your bedroom decor, you can select a bedding set that comes complete with a bed skirt or fitted sheet to cover your bed frame or mattress well.
- However, you can go one size up when you are looking for a comforter. For example, if you have a queen sized bed, you could pick out a king sized quilt. That gives you more length and width to play with, so both bed partners can stay warm and toasty.
