How to Choose the One That’s Right for You
You may think that choosing a new comforter for your bed is a simple task. You just go to the store and pick one out, and that’s that, right? Wrong. There are lots of different types of comforters out there, and when you consider how much time you’re actually going to be spending with said comforter, you may want to put a little more consideration into the selection process.
Probably the most important factor to consider when choosing a new luxury comforter is the warmth the blanket will provide. If you live in south Florida and tend to get hot when you sleep, then you probably don’t want a comforter that is designed for keeping Minnesotans warm in January. The same can be said for the opposite; if you like lots of warmth when you sleep, you don’t want to choose a lightweight comforter that won’t really warm you up at all. Many comforters come with some indication on the packaging of how much warmth they will provide, but if they don’t, you can usually still get an idea of the thickness and warmth. If you’re buying online, be sure to read the reviews to see what other consumers are saying.
Another feature to consider is the fabric style. Remember, you and this comforter are going to be spending every night together, so you want to be sure that you choose something that is comfortable. Yes, looks do matter and you do want it to match the rest of your bedroom’s décor, but the feeling of the fabric and the level of comfort it will provide is just as important. Make sure you choose something that you know you can sleep well with for years to come.
Buying comforters can be a lot of fun, but you shouldn’t ever just run to the store and pick up the first one you like. Take it out, touch the fabric, feel the thickness of the comforter, and let this guide your decision. If you can’t do this because you’re shopping online, make sure you read all the stats and take a peek at the reviews. You spend a third of your life in bed – why not make it as comfortable as possible?
