What is a Coverlet?

Posted by syno liu on

You might hear the term “coverlet” quite often while shopping for quilts to transform your bedroom into a luxurious retreat. But what exactly is a coverlet?


In simple terms, a coverlet is a type of blanket that is often used as a decorative layer on top of a bed, similar to a quilt or bedspread. They are typically thinner and lighter than a traditional quilt or comforter and often feature intricate patterns or designs that add a touch of elegance to any bedroom. A coverlet is usually made from lightweight materials such as cotton, linen or silk. These materials make the coverlet breathable and perfect for use during the warmer months. However, they can also be layered with other bedding during colder months for extra warmth and comfort. A coverlet is comprised of two layers of woven fabric with a layer of wadding in between, similar to the traditional quilt.


However, there are a few key differences between a “coverlet”, “bedspread”, and “quilt”. A coverlet typically cover the top of the bed and may drape over the sides, but does not usually extend all the way to the floor like a bedspread. Additionally, a coverlet is typically less bulky than a quilt or bedspread, making it easier to care and perfect for all seasons.


The main purpose of a coverlet is to add an extra layer of style and elegance to a bed while also providing a lightweight and breathable covering for sleeping. Coverlets are often used as a focal point in a bedroom that compliments the overall décor of the room.


When choosing a coverlet, it is important to consider the size of your bed, as well as the style and colour of your existing bedding and décor. It is always a good idea to double check the measurements before making a purchase. Additionally, consider the material used in the coverlet and how they will feel against your skin. Cotton coverlets will be soft and comfortable, providing high breathability throughout all seasons while microfibre coverlets will be silky smooth and provide more warmth during the colder months.
