If you've shopped for bed coverings lately, you know there's a better option beyond the lines priced per piece and those umpteen-piece bed-in-a-bag sets that include everything down to the sheets. This convenient option is the mini comforter set.

Bedding choices are vast.


A twin size mini comforter set contains a comforter and one pillow sham. Full, queen and king sets have a comforter and two pillow shams. King sets have king size shams.


Platform beds and most other modern styles don't need bed skirts. Neither do sleigh beds and other traditional styles with headboard, footboard and decorative wooden rails. Mini comforter sets allow bed owners to buy bedding sets without ending up with pieces they can't use.


Mini comforter set prices vary according to brand, quality and materials. Prices range from $30 to $250, as of 2010.


Most bedding manufacturers have embraced mini comforter sets. You'll find everything from discount store house brands to offerings from top fashion designers like Donna Karan and Michael Kors.

Where to Buy

You can buy mini comforter sets anywhere you normally buy bedding, such as department, specialty and online stores.
