Duvets and Coverlets and Comforters, Oh My!

Feb 15th 2014

The centerpiece of any bedroom is the bed. No matter how nice the end tables, how classy the chest of drawers, the bed will always take center stage. Everything on the bed serves an important purpose, but the top layer is going to steal all of the glory. Do you choose a comforter, coverlet or duvet set as your finale? Each type of bed covering serves a unique purpose, and Bare Home is here to help you choose the right fit for you.

The most common choice to top off the bed is the comforter. The comforter is a fluffy, thick blanket that is intended to sit above your top sheet. Comforters are meant to be warm and Bare Home’s are stitched in a box pattern to prevent the generous filling from shifting around. For those who get chilly at night, other blankets may be layered between the top sheet and the comforter for added warmth. Intended to serve the purpose of practicality and style, you’ll find cozy comforters in bright colors or patterns.

A very popular alternative to the comforter is the duvet. A duvet is similar to a comforter in purpose but offers a little more versatility. Duvets are large, filled blankets, usually white in color, that are intended to be paired with a duvet cover. This large cover gives the user an option of skipping the top sheet. A duvet cover works with a duvet similar to how a pillowcase covers a pillow. It protects the comforter from wear and tear and keeps the blanket tidy. Laundering the thin cover is much simpler than washing an entire comforter and allows for frequent changes if a color swap suits the user.

The most elegant of the bunch is the coverlet. The coverlet is designed with looks in mind. Our Bare Home coverlet features a diamond stitched pattern to add texture and beauty. A slightly thinner option than a comforter or duvet, the coverlet lays on top of the flat sheet as well as quilts or other blankets for those sleepers who like to layer.  A coverlet adds instant luxury to any bedroom.

All of the Bare Home comforters, duvets and coverlets are made from a hypoallergenic down alternative. Allergy or asthma sufferers will be grateful for the resistance to dust mites and bed bugs.
