How to choose suitable bed linens ?

We at Al Saad Home, as specialists in comfortable sleep and bedding, will help you choose and mention the most important types of bed linens and the most commonly used in bedrooms :

1 - Quilt ( Comforter ) :

It consists of three layers sewn together: a front and back layer and a middle layer called the filling made of different materials, often wool, cotton, polyester, silk or acrylic .











Quilt Features :
- Quilts are much warmer than the rest of the bedding.
- Quilts are practical and easy to display and use, as there is no need to use dressing.
- The comforter is usually puffy and gives a nice look on the bed.
- The quilt is usually sewn with seams that fix the filling well, giving it a longer life .

Quilt Cons :
- It takes a lot of storage space.
- Washing it is difficult or requires a dry clean due to its large size.
- Its price is relatively higher than the covering, which we will talk about in the next point.

2 - Quilt Cover :

The dressing means the duvet cover, but its main difference from the comforter is that it requires the presence of a filling to be able to use it, as you cannot use it until you install the filling .










Quilt Cover Features :
- The covering is easy to wash and replace.
- It does not take up much space in storage, as you can put it in the drawers of the bed or closet.
- You can control the thickness of the filling that you want to install for your mattress.
- Its price is relatively lower than the comforter.

Disadvantages of Quilt Cover :
- It requires more effort to display and use, as the filling must be installed before use.
- The filling is less stable inside the covering because it is not stitched, knowing that the dressing usually has corners to fix the filling in some way.

3 - Bed Spread :

The Bed Spread is a lightweight and thin cover that does not puff up on the bed and can be used for quilting or as a decoration .










Advantages of the Bed Spread :
- Practical and the price is not high.
- Easier to wash than comforters.
- It can be used as a cover or as a decoration.

Disadvantages of a Bed Spread :
- Does not contain the level of warmth that the quilt gives.
- It does not give a swollen appearance to the bed, rather it is flat.

4- Blanket :

Or, as it is called in the Gulf countries, the burnous, which is usually used in winter and cold weather, and there are some people who prefer to sleep under a heavy blanket in a cool room subject to central home air conditioning,

The blanket can come with one or two layers depending on its thickness and quality. The polyester blanket is one of the most common blankets because polyester is a material that gives heat and warmth.

There are two main types of blankets :

- Light blanket ( Fleece ) :

It is very practical as it is light in weight and gives warmth while sitting in the hall or on the ground. It is also used in home decor, where it can be placed on the sofa, bed or home decor basket.










- Heavy blanket (2 Ply ) :
It is the common blanket that is used in cold weather.

materials :
All bedding mentioned above come in different materials :

Cotton: Cotton is characterized by high quality and is considered the most expensive raw material in terms of price, as cotton contains very soft and luxurious fibers, and cotton is a cool and breathable natural material that breathes well, and it is better for people who suffer from allergies.

Microfiber (polyester): It is a manufactured material, which is less expensive than cotton, but it gives more warmth and heat than cotton.

Silk: It is a luxurious fabric that not many people use, but it is worth a try if you are looking for something healthy and cool for you, as silk retains moisture, and is naturally hypoallergenic, but it needs careful care due to its weak fibers, and it is expensive .

Wool: very warm. Wool is used for cold and winter nights, as it works to maintain warmth and does not leak, in addition to being easy to clean and moderately priced.

Acrylic: Acrylic is a soft and light synthetic material that resembles natural wool in appearance and texture, which makes it a relatively cheaper alternative to wool, but acrylic fibers are softer and stronger, as well as water-resistant, and it is one of the least breathable materials, which makes it ideal for retaining heat.

Conclusion :
Although both bedding items are good, they each serve different purposes, so it's really important to know their properties if you're confused by the choice .
