What's a Duvet?
When shopping for bedding you probably have heard of duvets. With some companies using the term duvet interchangeably with comforters, many people are unsure of what the difference is. So what exactly is a duvet, and what are the pros and cons of having one?
Basically, a duvet is similar to a giant pillowcase, in which you place fill into. it gets kind of confusing because you can place a comforter inside of a duvet. Unlike a comforter, which is ready to go right out of the bag, duvet's require this fill in order to be ready for use. The duvet covers, and fills, are usually purchased separately. So now that you know the difference, what are the pros and cons of duvets?
Duvets are easier to clean than comforters. Comforters often can't be washed in the washer and dryer. Duvet's, on the other hand, is easy to clean. Simply take out the fill and wash the cover. If cleaning your comforter is something that you often wish then this is a huge pro for you.
Switching of styles. Since duvets have the fill and the cover, it is easy to switch out the style of your duvet. Duvet sets on Amazon start at around $25, so you can easily switch the style of your bedding. Also, duvet comforters are easier to store if you wish to use your old styles later, unlike bulky comforters.
Bedding styles; comforters are more commonly used if you wish to have many layers on your bed. If you wish to have a simpler time making your bed than duvets may be your style. Simply have the duvet, and a couple of pillows and you are all set.
One con of duvets is that the filling can shift around as you sleep. Whereas comforter has the filling sewed into the blanket, Duvet's do not.
Duvets are a great choice if you want something easily interchangeable, and easy to clean. If you wish to have a layered bed style or do not like the idea of having the duvet fill move around inside of the duvet cover, then a comforter may be the best choice for you.
