Choosing The Right Quilt Cover

From style to feel, we spend countless hours choosing the right clothing to wear, so why not devote just as much time in choosing our bedding? The bedroom should be a personal place of peace and sanctuary, suited to your preferences. With around one quarter of our lives being spent in bed, it’s essential that this time is in something that provides relaxation and that we love to come home to. 

There are an array of factors to take into consideration when choosing the right quilt cover suited to you and your home’s aesthetic. From fabrics to hues or patterns, the choice is yours! 


Quilt covers come in a multitude of fabrics designed to suit seasons, comfort, allergies and general preference of touch. From cotton, bamboo, silk and so many more, they all vary in price and designs.


Cotton is often a popular choice for it’s breathability and versatility for seasonal change. Cotton can come in different thread counts for varying versions of softness. Cotton can keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, so they are a versatile option for any season. 


Bamboo has become a prominent choice as it’s hypoallergenic, antimicrobial and antibacterial. These threads can keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. Bamboo is also often sustainably sourced and can be softer than even the highest thread counts of cotton.


Silk is soft and ensures a more regulated body temperature while sleeping. This means it is very breathable and is great for hot or cold sleepers. Similar to bamboo, natural silk duvet covers are also hypoallergenic. Silk prevents dust mites and bacteria build up. Silk is great to prevent breakage of your hair and prolong the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. 

Hues and Patterns

Your bedroom is a place of relaxation and rest. You should feel at ease when walking into your bedroom and choosing the correct quilt cover can aid in this aura. 

The surrounding aspects of your bedroom such as wall and floor colour, will affect the choice of your quilt hue. If you have a feature wall with a loud piece or art or patterned wallpaper, you may want to opt for a plain hued quilt cover, free from prints. If you have a plain white or neutral coloured wall, you could opt for a more funky and fun quilt cover as a statement piece in your bedroom. 

The overall aesthetic of your bedroom will also play a huge part in choosing the correct quilt cover suited to your personality. If you have loads of plants, a striking linen quilt cover in an olive, dust or cream will add to this theme. If you have mirrors and an array of beautiful lamps and the like, a pretty white or light coloured quilt cover would suit. 

Choosing lighter colours may brighten up your room and make it feel more light filled. This should also be considered in terms of the size of your room and size of your bed.

Overall the choice is simply yours to make! Based on the type of sleeper you and keeping in mind your aesthetic, spend some time selecting the perfect quilt cover for you.
