The Manchester Factory, based in Marrickville, NSW, Australia has recently released a blog post that advises upsizing of winter quilts. The article points out that there are actually four reasons for upsizing a quilt. More about this article can be gleaned at

Dimi, a spokesperson for The Manchester Factory says, “At some point most of us dream of having the perfect bed that is photo-ready for social media or to look like it does in the magazines. But have you ever wondered to yourself how you get your bed to look like it was styled by a pro or how to get your bed photo-ready? The simple answer is to upsize.”

Another good reason for upsizing quilts is that they will likely look better on the bed. Furthermore, an upsized quilt will provide more warmth because there is a lesser chance for cold air entering the quilt simply because it is heavier. The third reason for upsizing the quilt is that it will allow people to sleep comfortably with their loved ones or children without each of them trying to get as much of the quilt as possible.

After upsizing a quilt, there will be some things to add to make a bed look aesthetically good. These include a fitted sheet, a flat sheet that may be optional, pillows and pillowcases, quilt cover, and of course the quilt (or as they are known in Australia - doona).

Next, there are a number of steps to creating that cosy bed that is ready for the winter season. The first step is done after putting on a mattress protector on the bed. To ensure that a favorite is fitted on the bed, the fitted sheet has to be made sure to be tucked under really tightly. This can help in getting rid of any excessive wrinkles or creases in your sheets.

For those who like to use a flat sheet, the way to do it is the lay it over the bed and then tuck the corners tightly, also to minimise any wrinkles in the flat sheet. After placing the flat sheet on the bed, depending on the season, it would be a good idea to create a layering with a wool blanket during the winter season before putting the quilt on the bed.

And when adding a quilt to the bed it is important to make sure that it falls evenly on both sides. Adding pillows and cushions on top of the bed will provide the finished look. Lastly, it would be a good idea to add either a coverlet, light blanket, or throw to the end of the bed which not only adds to the aesthetic appeal but is also practical. Sometimes when sitting in bed something warm and cozy over the legs would provide sufficient comfort. In addition, they can be converted into an extra layer during those really cold nights.

Dimi says, “At The Manchester Factory, we have created the perfect bundled bedding set from our Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton Collection. Which will help you in creating the ultimate comfort for your bed. The Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton bedding MIX sets are bundles that are perfect for those who have upsized their quilt but no longer use a flat sheet.
