Before you purchase a new coverlet for your bedroom, here are some things to consider:

What kind of quilts are available?


Although coverlets are often seen as traditional bedding, there are more modernized versions available. Patchwork quilts or country quilts are the foundation of the genre. These colorful pieces are usually family keepsakes, since they are so beautiful and often handmade by someone close. Don't have a family keepsake? You can find the same look in department stores (though with less sentimental value!). Because of their warmth and interesting texture, many stores also offer modern quilt sets. These pieces usually are one or two colors, so they won't stand out as much as traditional options.

Where can I use a quilt?


Most pieces are part of a bedding set, though they also come in handy as throws or blankets. Looking for ideas on how to incorporate one into your decor? Enhance a cozy reading nook by draping a worn handmade quilt on your favorite armchair. Better yet, showcase it in a living room for your family and guests to enjoy. Add warmth and comfort to a a guest room by folding one at the end of the bed, or use a light cotton piece as a bedspread during summer — or a woven alternative in the winter. The options are endless!
