Our Guides to make a Better Home

Bed Sheets

A Bed Sheet normally comes with a set of matching pillow cases only. This gives the bed a very basic look, and you will have to get the blanket separately which will be difficult to match with the color and design of the bed sheet and pillow cases. This creates a minimalist décor for your bedroom and the comfort is also not very best. On the budget front, bed sheets are way more affordable when compared to other types of beddings. Most people use bed sheets because they are not always aware of all the available options that are being sold in today's market. So, they end up using just basic bed sheets.

Simple Bed Sheet

Advantages:

  • Affordable than other forms of beddings.
  • Easy to make your bed with them.
  • Creates a minimalist bedroom décor.

Problems:

  • Hard to find matching blankets.
  • Can’t create a more designer bed with them.
  • Limitation on bedroom décor with them.

Comforter Set

In a Comforter Set, you generally get a Bed Sheet, a Comforter, and 2 Pillow Cases. This is better than a bed sheet as this will also include the comforter which will be matching with the bed sheet and pillow cases to create a more uniform bed setting. This reduces the need to buy a blanket separately.

A comforter set is recommended in a colder environment as the comforter is filled with different fillings as per the set you are ordering. It keeps you warm and cozy during your sleep at night and improves your sleep quality as well.

If you are looking for a more comfortable setup, and you are not worried about the décor then you should go for a comforter set.

Comforter Set for Cold Weather

For your bedroom décor, it will do a little bit more than a bed sheet but still, it has its limitations as if you need to add extra pillows or cushions to your bed then you will have to search and find the matching ones which is a very difficult task. Most comforter sets are available in more of a neutral color and designs, that do very little to your bedroom décor.

Advantages:

  • Creates a comfortable sleeping environment.
  • Warm and cozy
  • Suitable in a cold environment

Problems:

  • Limitation in terms of décor for bedroom
  • Generally available in solid designs

Duvet Cover

A Duvet Cover is the cover that is used on the comforter. It makes using a comforter easier and adds a touch of design to it if you are looking to improve your bedroom décor. One other benefit is that it can be removed from the comforter and washed which makes your bedding refreshed all over again. The purpose of a duvet cover is to keep your comforter clean and add a touch of design to your bedroom décor.

Duvet Cover Set for Bedroom
