Quilt covers are truly a treat to be had in any bedroom set. They make bedding just that bit more desirable.
Duvet covers or as we know them as Quilt covers are truly a treat to be had in any bedroom set. They make the bedding just that much more desirable. There are many reasons why one decides to make the purchase of a quilt cover set. One would be that it keeps the inner quilt safe from any direct spills and dirt.
This can be very important if you spend a whole lot of money on some luxury down or silk quilt. Chances are you do not want to be buying a new one every month or spending loads of money at the dry cleaners every few days. So to prevent this smart person gets a quilt cover to protect that luxury bedding from any harm. Some quilt covers or silk quilt inners also bring many anti bacterial qualities too. For instance some quilts can protect up to an amazing 99.8 percent of bacteria, which is why many smart parents use them to keep their children nice and protected from bacteria causing infections.
One thing that all quilt covers have in common is the ability to protect the quilt from harm. This is probably the most important because believe it or not, some quilts can harbor bacteria very quickly. The reason for this is because when you spill something on a quilt or even wash it for that matter the substance can seep deep into the fabric and stay their between the down or feather. Once it is there, fungi and mold will begin to grow creating a perfect environment to harvest bacteria, making your bed set not the safest place to be. That is why quilt covers play such an important role in the bedroom. With our Coshee sets it is so easy to change the sheet rather than the cover and for most families this saves significant time.
Everyone has their own take on what style and design they prefer. The best thing about our Coshee bedding is you can change your bedding as often as you change your mind about what design style you like, because this bedding is not only affordable but, also it is extremely easy to change in and out. Also as any decorator knows if you are going to change your bedroom décor it is best if you start with a center piece and decorate around it. Coshee quilt covers are a perfect way to make your bedroom that center and change the sheets to when needed. The problem many people have when changing their quilt sets is that they also have to change the rest of their bedding. Now you can buy our Coshee’s in a set and then purchase the co-ordinated sheets to change the look with minimal fuss. I also believe using a king size quilt and cover are best used on a queen size bed because with king covers you can let the it hang and it will eliminate the need for a bed skirt and give you far more fabric and quilt when sleeping at night meaning no more losing your covers when sleeping.
This will save you time and money looking for one that matches and with all beds in your house if you upsize from the even the single to a double cover set you will always sleep comfortably and that is why king covers are best for a queen sized bed.
In the UK a “King sized” bed (which is commonly known as a “Queen sized bed” in America and Australia) measures 150cm wide x 200cm long, whilst a “Super King sized bed (which is known sometimes wrongly labelled as a “Queen sized bed in the UK) measures about 180xm wide and 200cm long (we label this a “King” sized bed)
Confused? Imagine you are moving from one country to another and you start to buy bed linen in terms you are familiar with and pick up a Queen size set of sheets in the UK only to find it doesn't fit your Australian Queen bed as the size is different. Frustrating!
New Zealand has the largest array of bed sizes to choose from with a total of 9 ranging from Single through to California King (which is a different size again to the California King you can purchase in America)
The most common sizes around the world still tend to be:
150cm x 200cm Australian Queen
180 x 200cm Australian King
Although they will be labelled differently in various countries.
The largest bed is a California King which in its native home measures approximately: 200 x 210cm.
Now let’s add our new popular additions of the “Topper” to our mattress and we now have a deep mattress which we need fitted deep pocket sheets to fit!
In the world of bed linen it is confusing to both the customer and the manufacturer when size is discussed and as you can see “Size” really does matter so lets hope we can all make shopping that little bit easier and in Australia add an extra 10 cm to our length of quilt covers to give that little bit more for tall people and bring us more in line with overseas linen groups!
That’s my two bobs worth anyway!
