- Not as common but still used is the top sheet that segregates the sleeper from the duvet and/or comforter.
- Next, comes the bottom sheet that covers the mattress.
- The bedspreads and quilts are used to directly cover the sleeper. Some may use them directly whereas others might have another blanket underneath.
- Throw blankets are used in addition to regular blankets in order to add more warmth. They can, however, also be used for the purpose of decor.
- A decorative covering that does not touch the floor but covers the entire bed is the coverlet.
- Comforters are thicker bed covers that provide warmth. The thickness of the comforter is because of their stuffing.
- Duvets are similar to comforters, except that they require duvet covers.
- The duvet cover is what the duvet is covered in. It is also used as an alternative to the top sheet.
- The continental pillow is kept against the headboard for decorative purposes.
- The sleeping pillow is the main pillow that the sleeper rests his or her head upon.
- Decorative pillows, also known as throw pillows are kept on the bed for the purpose of decor only. These can be any shape and size.
- The pillowcase is what the various pillows are covered or put in. They come in different patterns and sizes.
- Similar to the pillowcase is the pillow sham. However, these are sewn onto one side and used exclusively for decoration.
- The bolster is a tube like pillow of differing sizes that is used for both support and decoration.
All the above-mentioned items are grouped under the category of bedding supplies. Some are essential for a good night’s sleep whereas others are for comfort and décor. All these items are available in a range of bright and beautiful colors.
