Deciding Between Duvets, Comforters and Bedspreads
September 14, 2012
Adding duvets, comforters and bedspreads to your bedroom drastically changes the look of the room, as well as provides for a better sleeping experience. A duvet that matches your current bed linens, for example, helps create a put-together look for the area while keeping you warm when you sleep. On the other hand, if you have plain, white bed sheets, a comforter featuring bright colors and patterns adds a fashionable touch to your space at a moment’s notice.
When contemplating between comforters and bedspreads, you have two primary choices. Comforter sets often come complete with shams, decorative pillows and a bed skirt, while duvets only include a cover. Both choices are available in a myriad of colors, patterns and designs, and they are easy to clean. Designer comforters are generally higher quality and made for both sleeping and decoration, while those made of lower-quality materials may not provide the warmth and comfort you seek. Reversible duvets are essentially a cloth bag filled with down and feathers and typically lies flatter than a comforter, but can be used to accent two styles as both sides are designed. The cover of a duvet insert is designed to be removed for laundering, while comforters are one piece.
Both options of designer comforters and bedspreads make excellent choices for the bedroom, but deciding which option is a better fit for you depends on your needs. If you are looking for warmth on very cold nights, go with the flatter, feather option. However, if you are considering bedspreads primarily for decoration, comforters are the way to go.
