What are Quilt Covers?

Quilt covers, often referred to as doona covers or duvet covers, are bed covers that are placed over your duvet or doona. It's the protection and often the top piece of your bed set. A quilt cover most often comes as part of a set, with matching pillowcases. Quilt covers offer a practical and affordable solution for styling your bedroom.

Your favorite choice - a waffle quilt cover!

A waffle texture quilt cover, also known as a waffle weave, features a distinctive honeycomb or square pattern resembling the look of a waffle. This textured design is created using a weaving technique that results in a raised, grid-like pattern across the fabric.

Here are some key points about waffle texture quilt covers:

  1. Texture: The waffle weave creates a textured surface that adds depth and visual interest to the bedding. The raised squares or rectangles provide a tactile feel and a unique appearance to the fabric.

  2. Breathability: Waffle weave fabrics often have good breathability due to the nature of the weave, allowing air to circulate, making them a comfortable choice for bedding.

  3. Lightweight: They are typically lightweight and have a slightly crinkled appearance, which can add a casual and relaxed vibe to the bedroom decor.

  4. Material: Waffle texture quilt covers can be made from various materials, including cotton, cotton blends, or even linen. Each material will have its own characteristics in terms of softness, durability, and care requirements.

  5. Style: These covers often have a modern and contemporary aesthetic, making them a popular choice for those seeking a minimalist or textured look for their bedding.

  6. Versatility: They can easily complement various bedroom styles, from a cozy farmhouse look to a more urban or Scandinavian-inspired decor.

Closure Type: Check the closure type of the quilt cover. Popular options include buttons, snaps, or zippers. Consider your convenience and ease of use when deciding on the closure type.

Care Instructions: Review the care instructions for the quilt cover. Ensure that the maintenance requirements fit your lifestyle and preferences. Some covers may require specific washing instructions or professional cleaning, while others are machine washable.

Quality and Brand: Consider the quality of the quilt cover and the reputation of the brand. Read reviews, check customer feedback, and assess the overall reputation of the manufacturer to ensure you're selecting a reliable and well-made product.

What is the difference between a quilt cover, duvet cover and doona cover?


Quilt cover, duvet cover and doona cover all mean the same thing. 

The terms "quilt cover," "duvet cover," and "doona cover" are used interchangeably in different regions, and there can be slight variations in the usage of these terms depending on the geographical location. Here's a general breakdown:

Quilt Cover: In many English-speaking countries, including Australia and New Zealand, the term "quilt cover" is commonly used. It refers to a removable cover that encases a quilt or comforter to protect it and provide decorative elements. The quilt cover typically features a closure mechanism, such as buttons or zippers, to secure the insert inside.

Duvet Cover: In North America and some European countries, the term "duvet cover" is prevalent. It refers to the same type of bedding cover that encases a duvet, which is a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers, or synthetic fibers. Like a quilt cover, a duvet cover is designed to protect the duvet and provide a decorative layer.

Doona Cover: The term "doona cover" is primarily used in Australia and is essentially synonymous with a quilt cover or duvet cover. "Doona" is a brand name that has become a common term for a filled quilt or comforter in Australia. Therefore, a doona cover refers to a cover that goes over a doona to protect it and add style to the bedding ensemble.

While the terms may differ, the purpose and functionality of these covers remain the same. They serve as a protective layer for the insert while allowing for easy removal and cleaning. The choice of terminology often depends on regional preferences and language conventions.


Why do we use quilt covers?


Quilt covers are used for several reasons:

Protection: Quilt covers provide a protective layer for quilts, comforters, or duvets, shielding them from dirt, stains, spills, and general wear and tear. They act as a barrier, helping to extend the lifespan of the insert.

Hygiene: Quilt covers can be easily removed and washed, promoting cleanliness and hygiene in the bedroom. They help prevent the accumulation of dust, allergens, and pet dander, creating a healthier sleeping environment.

Versatility: Quilt covers offer versatility in terms of design and style. They allow you to change the appearance of your bedding quickly and affordably without replacing the entire quilt or comforter. With a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures available, quilt covers enable you to update your bedroom decor and match different themes or seasons.

Easy Maintenance: Quilt covers are relatively easy to care for. They can often be machine washed, making regular cleaning convenient. This is especially beneficial for individuals with allergies or sensitivities who require frequent washing of bedding.

Comfort: Quilt covers provide a softer and more comfortable surface to rest against compared to the quilt or comforter alone. They can be made from materials like cotton, linen, or microfiber that offer a pleasant tactile experience and enhance overall comfort during sleep.

Personalization: By using quilt covers, you have the freedom to express your personal style and preferences. You can choose from a variety of designs, colors, and patterns to create a bedroom aesthetic that aligns with your taste and complements the overall decor.
