There are most probably numerous types of mattresses, different quality sheets & various ranges of pillows to make luxury bedding of your own, but when it comes to transitioning a bed that is warm, soft, comfortable & looks more beautiful than your most challenging choice will have to be either a quilt or a duvet.
So, Let’s not waste time, and let’s see the difference between Quilts & Duvets!
What is a Quilt?
A quilt is a multi-layered textile, traditionally composed of two or more layers of fabric or fiber. Moreover, it looks quite similar to a blanket because of its layers, Commonly three layers are used with a filler material namely: the backing, the front, and the batting. The backing is usually a simple pattern that serves as the foundation of the rest of the quilt. The front is where the colorful patches and the stitched patterns go. This is usually the part people envision when they think of quilts. Our quilts are processed by sewing on the face of the fabric, and not just the edges, to combine the three layers together to reinforce the material. Our batting is made from 100% Cotton to ensure a luxury bedding experience!
REASONS TO CHOOSE A QUILT
COOL AND LIGHTWEIGHT
Wrapping up in a Rekhas luxury quilt is like wrapping up in luxury—it lies close to the body yet doesn’t smother you. This makes it the perfect bedding choice for the summertime, especially for people who need tips to stay cool while sleeping. It’s also a great option for your guesthouses or cottages so that your customers can have a glowing experience.
PERFECT FOR LAYERING
Layers create a lot of visual interest when you look at a bed. They allow you to add different colors and patterns that you can mix and match at different times of the year. Not only that, but layers on a bed will keep you warmer when you sleep while still allowing the option of quickly cooling down if you get too warm in the middle of the night. Because quilts are usually nice and thin, they are the perfect choice for layered bedding.
WHAT IS A DUVET?
Similarly to a quilt, Duvet usually called a comforter is a type of bedding consisting of a soft flat bag filled with either down, feathers, wool, cotton, silk, or a synthetic alternative, and is typically protected with a removable cover & the real difference between duvets and quilts is the middle layer.
REASONS TO CHOOSE A DUVET
Duvets are generally considered warmer than quilts because there is a lot more thickness to them. And even though they don’t often lend themselves to a layered look, you can still slip blankets underneath them to make duvets even warmer. However, if you want to hold onto your duvet in the summer, you can find lighter-weight duvets and drop the bottom layers. Or you can use your duvet’s cover for your bedding and store the duvet itself away until winter.
THERE’S MORE WEIGHT
For some people, being trapped under too much weight while trying to sleep can feel like a nightmare. For others, extra weight is soothing, helping them relieve anxiety and drift off to sleep the same way being swaddled helps babies nod off. Duvets tend to have more weight to them than the average quilt. If you’re a restless sleeper who doesn’t mind a little extra weight, a duvet may be the cure to your sleepless woes.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CHOICE
So, after knowing the difference between them we’ve come back to the big question of quilt vs. duvet. Which to choose ultimately depends on two things: your sleeping habits and your preferred style. Those who like to stay cool or prefer having layers when they sleep should lean more toward a quilt. Those who want a warmer, heavier covering should opt for a duvet. As far as style goes, the best thing to do is take a look at your room and decide if a flatter quilt that lays close to the bed look is better for your room or if your space better suits the pillowy look of a duvet.
But if you’re looking for a classic, down-home look, Rekhas House of Cotton offers both duvet covers and quilts to tie your room together and help you slip into a comfortable night’s sleep.
