Bedspreads vs Quilts
A quilt is a thick bed covering often made of cotton or linen. The interiors are typically filled with down, down alternative, or polyster. Typically, they’re designed to provide maximum warmth and comfort during the winter, while remaining breathable during the summer. You might also buy a different quilt for summer and winter, with different warmth properties.
By contrast, a bedspread is a lightweight, typically decorative bed covering. They can easily stand in as a summer quilt if necessary, as they’re not as warm or heavy as standard quilts.
Owning both a bedspread and a quilt allows you to easily swap out as seasons change, from warm winter bedding to cool summer bedding.
What are the benefits of bedspreads?
Bedspreads have quite a few benefits.
They’re a great way to protect your bedding from dust, dirt, pets, or other hygiene concerns. They simply go over the top of your other bedding — including the quilt — to form a presentable, protective layer.
Bedspreads can be used to quickly change the entire look of your bedroom. Rather than replace an entire sheet set, just adding a bedspread can provide a , complementary design to your room. Add quick splashes of colour or design and break up the look of your room easily.
They’re much more comfortable in summer than a traditional quilt. They’re thinner, lighter, and more comfortable as the temperature and humidity starts to rise at night
Lastly, as said above — they turn making your bed into a breeze. Just throw the bedspread over your sheets and quilt and you’ve instantly got a presentable bed to come home to
