Bedspreads and Coverlets

A new bedspread or coverlet can instantly change the look of a room almost on its own. The main difference between a bedspread and a coverlet is the size of the area they cover, with bedspreads designed to cover the entire area, up over the pillows, and down to the floor, comforters down about 3/4 of the length to the floor, and coverlets designed to just cover the top of the bed and down to the box spring. This is where many people end up disappointed, discovering their new bedding doesn’t cover as much of an area as intended. See the chart below for standard bedding sizes. This will give you some indication of how much coverage you might get from what you’re looking at and guide you to a size you need. Sometimes its simply a matter of buying a larger size than your bed to get the look you want.

I wanted a neutral colored coverlet set to layer with a floral set, with one on the bed and the other folded at the foot.
