Bedding Terminology


Bedding is a general term that refer to all of the accessories used on a bed such as sheets, pillows, comforters and others.

There are all sorts of bedding with different names and functions, so sometimes, people get confused about certain Bedding terms. However, we decided to put together the definition of some bedding terms you are likely to come across. This will help you have a clearer picture of what you want to purchase next time you are making an order and will come in handy when conversations steer to bedding terms.

See them below!

Complete Bed set: A complete setnormally includes a bed sheet, fixed duvet (having the duvet cover sewn onto the duvet) or reversible duvet (having a duvet and duvet cover sewn separately) and pillowcases (the number depends on the bed size)

Coverlet: A coverlet is a lightweight, woven spread used on the top of the bedding. It can be big enough to hang down the sides of a bed or just cover the top of the mattress.
