Bedspreads, Coverlets & Comforters
There are many differents ways that hotels make their beds:
- The traditional fitted sheet + flat sheet + quilt + guilt cover
- Triple sheeting, which dispenses of the quilt cover and puts a top sheet over the quilt instead
- Fitted sheet, quilt + quilt cover, but no flat sheet. The guest sleeps directly underneath the quilt cover
- Fitted sheet + flat sheet + (blanket if required) + bedspread/coverlet/comforter
For an accommodation property dressing their beds, efficiency in servicing the rooms is as important as the styling of the beds. Using a bedspread / coverlet / comforter can be highly efficient, and are readily available in almost every style and colour imaginable.
What is the difference between a bed spread & a coverlet?
Traditionally the main difference between a bed spread & a coverlet:
- Bed spreads are designed to be oversized and hang down to the floor, whereas coverlets tend to only cover the top of the bed.
- Bed spreads are a decorate cover only, they don't have any fill. Our coverlets have about 250gm fill
- Some coverlets are still made to fit to, and cover the top of the bed, but many coverlets are now oversized and drape to the floor.
Comforters are very similar to coverlets, but tend to have more fill and more suited to cooler weather / cooler climates.
