Flat sheet or top sheet

This is just an amazing sheet which separates you from your quilt, blanket or comforter. In various places of England like Cardiff, Birmingham, London and Liverpool, duvet covers take the place of flat sheet or top sheet. 

Fitted sheet or bottom sheet

A fitted sheet or a bottom sheet has an elastic edge which fits well with any type of mattress. Hence it is named as a fitted or bottom sheet. Nowadays the available mattresses are quite thicker and so you need to measure the fitted sheet to ensure that it stretches all over your mattress.


Bedspread is a decorative as well as a very thin covering that covers the bed completely & touches the floor. The very common materials that are used for bedspreads are polyester, cotton, wool and chenille.


Blankets are mostly used to provide warmth. Some people in England prefer to use blanket directly while others prefer to use an attractive duvet, comforter or quilt on top of the blanket.

It is a bed cover which is stuffed completely with down or fibres for the added warmth. All its four sides are sewn together. It comes in almost a range of colours, styles and patterns. A comforter is one of the most decorative items in a bedroom. It is either made of polyester or cotton. 


It is almost similar to a comforter, the only difference is that duvet requires a duvet cover. It is typically solid white and is stuffed with a down or down alternative.
