The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Perfect Coverlet for Your Bedroom

Does your bedroom feel incomplete or lack the cozy touch you desire? The solution could be as simple as adding the right coverlet. At Manchester Factory, we understand the challenge of finding bedding that combines style with comfort. This guide will help you navigate our diverse collection of coverlets, ensuring you find the perfect match for your bedroom.

What is a Coverlet and Why Do You Need One?

A coverlet is a lightweight, decorative bedspread that is perfect for layering or using on its own in warmer months. It's not just a functional piece of bedding; it's a style statement that can transform the look and feel of your bedroom.

Choosing the Right Coverlet for Your Bedroom

  1. Consider the Size: Ensure the coverlet fits your bed perfectly. A coverlet that's too small or too large can throw off the entire look of your room.

  2. Select the Right Fabric: From cotton to velvet, the fabric of your coverlet affects its feel and warmth. Consider the climate and your personal comfort preferences.

  3. Match Your Decor: Whether you prefer bold patterns or subtle hues, choose a coverlet that complements your existing bedroom decor.

  4. Think About Ease of Care: Look for coverlets that are easy to clean and maintain, ensuring they stay fresh and inviting.

Why Manchester Factory's Coverlets Stand Out

  • Variety: Our collection features a wide range of styles, colours, and materials to suit any taste.
  • Quality: Each coverlet is crafted with attention to detail, ensuring durability and comfort.
  • Affordable Luxury: We believe in offering high-quality products at accessible prices.


What is the difference between a coverlet and a bedspread?

A bedspread is a larger, heavier covering that drapes over the entire bed, reaching the floor on all sides. A coverlet is a lighter, smaller covering that only covers the top of the bed and typically doesn't reach the floor.

Coverlet Styling Tips

  • Layering: Combine your coverlet with complementary throws and cushions for a chic, layered look.
  • Seasonal Changes: Swap out your coverlet with the seasons to refresh your bedroom's style.
  • Focus on Comfort: A coverlet is an excellent way to add an extra layer of warmth on chilly nights.

Can I use a coverlet as a blanket?

Yes, coverlets can be used as a lightweight blanket during warmer months or as an additional layer of warmth in colder seasons.


How do I know what size coverlet to buy?

Measure your bed's dimensions and compare them to the coverlet's size to ensure a proper fit. Consider whether you want the coverlet to drape over the sides of the bed or simply cover the top.


Do I need a top sheet with a coverlet?

It's a matter of personal preference. A top sheet can provide an additional layer of protection for your coverlet, making it easier to maintain, while also adding an extra layer of comfort. However, some people prefer to use a coverlet without a top sheet for a simpler bedding arrangement.


How often should I wash my coverlet?

Washing frequency depends on personal preference and usage. If you use a top sheet, you may only need to wash your coverlet every few weeks or once a month. If you use the coverlet directly against your skin, consider washing it more frequently, such as every week or every other week. Always follow the care instructions on the coverlet's label.

A coverlet is a simple yet effective way to elevate your bedroom's style and comfort. Explore Manchester Factory's collection to find the perfect addition to your bedroom, resolving the common challenge of choosing suitable bedding with ease and confidence.
