We spend a third of our lives in bed. That’s why it’s important that we sleep well when we are there. A good night’s sleep doesn’t just require a good bed – but also a good duvet.
Over time, the natural resilience and volume of the down is degraded, and the duvet will no longer feel as full and fluffy.
It can be difficult to know what to look for when buying a new duvet. What is a good duvet, and what type of duvet should you choose? We’ve put together some tips which you can watch in the video or read about below.
How to choose the right duvet
Summer duvet and winter duvet
We recommend that you get both a summer and a winter duvet, as very few bedrooms are the same temperature all year round. After all, you don’t wear a winter jacket in the summer. Many of us still only have a “year-round duvet”, although fortunately, more and more people have the privilege of having two duvets to choose from. Due to their modest amount of filling, summer duvets are relatively cheap to buy, but you can also take the plunge and set off on your dream journey with a gorgeous goose or eiderdown duvet in European, cream-coloured silk.
The size of the duvet
If you want to be able to wrap the duvet around your body – and not least, feet – the duvet needs to be at least 30 cm longer than you. If you are considering a double duvet to share with a partner, you need to align your needs before the purchase. It won’t do for your partner to sweat profusely while your teeth chatter from the cold. If you can agree, choose a double duvet that is at least as wide as the bed.
What to look for?
The comfort of a duvet is most easily determined by a look at the fill power. The fill power is an expression of the insulating properties of the down, and thus their quality.Read more
