Futon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I sleep on a bed. People with limited living space may have a futon, since it can be used in two modes (couch by day, bed by night).
You cover yourself with a blanket or a comforter.
In Korea, nowadays they sleep on the bed a lot, but some people still sleep on the floor on futon or whatever you call.
So what do you call the thing on which you lie and sleep? Do you call it futon? I don't think you use it a lot as you don't sleep on the floor. Do you only call it bedding?
For something to cover yourself, do you call it quilt, comforter, duvet? Which is most widely used?
And how do you normally say when you organize bed stuff after sleeping? Do you say "make the bed" after sleeping and "lay or spread the bedding" right before sleeping?
Blanket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blankets can come in many forms. To me a blanket is thinner than a comforter, but I live in an area that features cold winters and a "comforter" to me is thick and quilted.
You "make the bed" by organizing the sheets, blanket, pillows, etc. for a neat appearance. Whether it is before or after sleeping.
All the stuff that goes on the bed is called bedding.
If you scroll down on this page it has some terminology that's used to describe bedding:
Bedding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The sheets and pillow/duvet covers are also called bed linen or bedclothes. But I've never actually heard anyone use bedclothes.
To me blanket, duvet, and quilt are all different things. I think comforter is what Americans call a duvet.
