One of the critical rules of buying a quilt and quilt cover is that they should be one size bigger than your bed. The additional sizing will allow for a little overhang on each side of your bed which not only looks lush but stops you from being uncovered in the middle of the night by the person tossing and turning next to you!

While we'd all like to say we get the recommended hours of sleep, only one-third of adults get enough each night. Your sleep quality can be affected by many factors, but the good news is that most of these are within our control to change. Did you know that your Quilt Cover Set is one of them?

The size and material of your cover might keep you up at night, affecting your sleep time significantly. Choosing the right quilt cover set for your bedroom can ensure a good night's sleep and improve your mood.

Read on below to find out how to choose the perfect quilt cover to suit your sleep style:

Choose The Right Colour

Your quilt size helps to determine your comfort while you sleep. Choosing the right colour and pattern for your space will ensure your space becomes your very own bedroom retreat.

For smaller spaces, opt for brighter, lighter-toned colours. The more colourful, the better for making your bedroom appear larger than it is by bouncing more light around the room.

You can also use colour theory to help influence your mood! Colour Psychology is based on the scientific effect that different hues of colour can have on the human brain.

  • Red
    Love, desire and passion
  • Brown
    Resilience and security
  • Yellow
    Happiness
  • Green
    Peace
  • Blue
    Calm, tranquillity and bliss
  • Purple
    Elegance and creativity
  • Pink
    Playfulness
  • Charcoal
    Elegance and simplicity


Material & Texture

Quilt covers are available in various materials, including cotton, linen, polyester, muslin and more! Choosing the right material can determine how your bed will look, but it can also impact the temperature and feel against your skin.

If you don't sleep with a top sheet, the texture of this material is even more important as it is directly in contact with your body as you sleep. Everyone has individual preferences, so we recommend considering a quilt cover material that is comfortable, durable, and breathable for you!
