Looking for a quilt cover does not have to be stressful. But anyone can feel burdened due to the jargon used and the variety on offer. That is why it’s important that you know the guidelines to follow when buying quilt cover sets.
Let’s look at some of the factors to consider in buying any quilt cover set:
The material the quilt cover is made of will help determine if you will have a good night’s sleep. This depends a lot on your own personal preference. The way in which the quilt cover was woven would also have an impact on its appearance and how it feels. This results in extra softness, coolness, and water resistance. Factors like the climate of the place and the type of room the cover sheet will be used in also matter.
The most popular materials used for a quilt cover are the following: linen, cotton, sateen, poly-blends, silk, and polyester jacquard. Each material comes with corresponding pros and cons. But the most popular of these is cotton. Many people opt for cotton, particularly 100 percent Egyptian cotton. For warmer climates, the favorite option is linen.
Thread count means the number of vertical and horizontal threads per square 10 cm. Most people think that the higher the thread count of any fabric, the softer and more luxurious it is. However, there is more to it than that. A quilt cover sheet that has a high thread count also has the ability to trap heat and allow for free flow of air.
The size of the quilt cover is determined by the size of the bed, the mattress, as well as the space in which the quilt is designed for. It would be best to get the exact measurements of these elements before you buy any of the quilt cover sets.
Luxury does not have a bearing when the quilt cover’s basic design is not to your liking. It is highly recommended that you check the pattern as well as the color of your chosen quilt cover. Do this and try to assess if it suits the decor of the room where you will be using it. Some questions you can ask include: Does it clash with the existing decors of the room? Do you have plans of redecorating? Will the decor blend in with the entire ensemble.
Some other features may also be considered for any quilt cover. You can find some that are more versatile when it comes to machine washing and drying while others may come in a pre-washed state to prevent it from shrinking. Always keep in mind the simplicity and integrity of the quilt cover are more important considerations compared to frills.
