    Quilt, Comforter, Duvet, or Bedspread: What's the Difference?

        Visit a bed and bath store, and you’ll find aisle after aisle devoted to every type

    of bedding. There are soft, comfortable sheets that

    make sliding into bed a joy; blankets that warm up chilly winter nights, and many different

    types of bedding toppers. The last category is where confusion might set in—comforter,

    duvet cover, quilt, bedspread: What’s the difference, and why should you choose one over

    the other, anyway? While sheets and blankets are mostly functional, the

    bedding set topper has a more

    decorative purpose—it sets the pace for your bedroom’s style and feel. So when it’s time

    to give your bedroom a new look, it helps to know which type of topper is the best choice

    for your space.


        The term quilt comes with lots of nostalgic connotations in addition to defining a type

    of bedding. Feather Quilting is

    an artistic endeavor as well as a style of manufacturing. A traditional

    quilt has three layers: top, inner batting,

    and bottom. The top layer of a quilt is crafted from many different pieces of fabric

    stitched together into complex patterns. The batting is a thin inner layer of wool or down,

    and the bottom is usually a solid piece of fabric. The quilter stitches through all three

    layers, creating the familiar quilted look of this very old art form. Some of the

    traditional American quilt designs include a double wedding ring, log cabin, patchwork, and

    flying geese. Quilt color schemes can be very bright and varied, or a mix of subtle colors,

    or a colored pattern on a white or solid background.

        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.

    Quilts with feather pillow

    are usually made from cotton or cotton blends and are lightweight, thus perfect for summer

    use or as a winter topper with blankets underneath.

        Quilts work especially well in country, rustic, coastal, or any other casual decorating



        Typically, a comforter is defined as a thick bedding topper filled with down or a

    synthetic substitute. Many comforters are sewn-through or quilted to keep the filling in

    place, but unlike a quilt, a comforter’s stitching is not ornately patterned. The amount

    and type of fill determine how much warmth a comforter provides. Probably the most popular

    type of bedding topper in the U.S., you can find comforters in just about any theme, color,

    style or design you desire. Cotton, cotton blends, and synthetics are the most common

    fabrics. Comforters are usually warm enough to use without a blanket underneath. Often,

    you';ll find comforters sold as a set with matching shams.

        Comforters are especially good for children’s bedrooms, as you can find a wide range

    of comforter/sheet sets in a bag for kid’s rooms. They are also a good choice if you are

    shopping on a tight budget.


        Although many people use the word “duvet” to refer to the duvet cover, technically a

    duvet is a comforter, usually plain white and filled with down, while the duvet cover is

    the fabric envelope that fits over the duvet and closes down one side with large buttons,

    ties, or a zipper. The most popular style of bedding with

    mattress in much of Europe, duvets and

    their covers have also become very popular in the US over the past decade or two. The duvet

    cover protects the inner comforter and is easy to remove for laundering, an improvement

    over traditional comforters and quilts, which are generally not easy to wash. In Europe, it

    is common to use the duvet without a top sheet underneath, but old habits die hard, and

    most Americans still use a duvet over a top sheet.

        The warmth of a duvet depends on the type and amount of filling. In the summer, you can

    use the duvet cover on its own as a lightweight topper, then add extra blankets under the

    duvet when it’s cold. Duvet covers are now easy to find in a wide range of styles,

    especially if you are looking for a contemporary or sophisticated look. Fabrics range from

    cotton to silk to synthetics and blends, sometimes with additional embroidery or other

    embellishments. Duvet covers are often sold with matching shams for a matched bedroom


        Especially good for minimalist, sophisticated, or modern bedrooms. They are a good

    choice for anyone who doesn’t want to bother with a top sheet.


        Bedspreads are single-layer bedding toppers that cover the entire bed right down to the

    floor and often cover the pillows as well.

    Many bedspreads have elaborate pompom, corduroy, or chenille finishes, and some have fringe

    along the bottom edges. Solid colors are most common, although there are printed bedspreads

    available. Bedspreads are lightweight, so are best for summer use, or used over a blanket

    in cooler weather. Although you still commonly find bedspreads in hotels, they are somewhat

    out of fashion for home use.

        Bedspreads are especially good for guest rooms, or for any bedroom with a retro style.
