How to choose bedding

Choosing bed linen need not be an overwhelming experience. Whether you are purchasing bed linen for the first time, redoing your home or doing up a guest house or hotel, we have you covered.


Different types of bedding

The first question you need to ask yourself is what type of bedding are you looking for? Below we explain the differences between a duvet cover set, a comforter set and a quilt set.


The Duvet Cover Set

A duvet cover is a cover for a duvet inner that has a zipper or button closure. It not only protects the inner but also features as a focal point of your bedroom design. Duvet covers usually come in an array of different fabrics, colours, designs and prints and are sold with matching linen pillowcases. The type of inner you choose to use inside the duvet cover plays a vital role in the overall look and feel you will get once your bed is made. Duvet covers can be used in both Summer or Winter. Due to its affordability you can also keep changing the covers keeping your decor on trend.

The Comforter Set

Unlike a duvet cover, the comforter is pre-filled and then quilted to ensure an even distribution of filling. Hence there is no need to purchase or use a duvet inner. For this reason comforters sets tend to be rather popular due to their ease of use and practicality. Just take it out the packaging and throw it onto your bed. Like duvet covers, comforters come in a variety of fabrics, colours and designs and include matching pillowcases. Keep in mind, comforters are bulkier than duvet covers, requiring more storage space when packed away and may need to be washed in larger capacity washing machines (depending on the size). Comforters however do not require ironing.

The Quilt Set

Like comforters, quilts are very easy to use. They can be used to sleep with or used for decorative purposes at the end of your bed. They are made up of two pieces of fabric, with a very thin layer of filling that is then quilted together. They are thinner than comforters. Due to its light weight, quilts are ideal for warmer weather. Quilt sets are extremely practical, easy to wash and do not require ironing.
