Two Bedding Staples: The Duvet versus The Comforter

Here at Beddley, we are known for our signature product, the Easiest Duvet Cover you’ve ever known. We know the confusion between duvets and comforters has lingered through the years. If you're here because you're in a dilemma as to which one to choose, consider this your lucky day. From deciding on the right bedding based on your preferences to the pros and cons of each, this handy guide will help you make the right choice effortlessly. So, let’s get started.

What is a comforter?

A comforter is a special type of thick blanket that helps in keeping you warm. It’s filled with synthetic fibers, batting, wadding or foam, and it’s commonly stitched or quilted to secure the filling in place. A comforter serves as the topmost bedcover on a bed and does not need an extra cover to protect it.

Comforters often come in a bedding set that may include decorative throw pillows or shams, pillowcases, sheets and bed skirts. This ensemble makes decorating your bed in style very easy. A comforter can be easily laundered in a washing machine and dried in a dryer at home, without any risk of damaging the product.

 

What is a duvet?

A duvet (aka duvet insert) is essentially a bag filled with goose or down feathers, down alternatives or silk. It is oftentimes referred to as a comforter in the US, although a duvet and a comforter are clearly different.

People like duvets because they’re warm but surprisingly lightweight. Their removable protective covers mean you can change the look of your bed without investing in an entirely new duvet. A duvet is sold without coordinating sheets or a cover for its protection. The color of the duvet is typically white or beige. This bland color is inconsequential since the duvet would ultimately require a protective covering known as a duvet cover, made of some sort of fabric, to cover it to withstand daily use. The most popular fabric used is cotton or a blend of it.

You'll probably need to shell out a bit more cash for a duvet than you would for a comforter. So, compared to a comforter, a duvet is like an investment but it's sure to serve you for years to come with proper care. This is why it's crucial to use a duvet cover for protection from the elements, much like a pillow is normally covered with a pillowcase. You wouldn't lay your head on your pillow bare, would you?

A duvet is very fluffy and ultra-plush, supremely comfortable and has a luxurious feel, giving you an illusion of being wrapped in a cloud in your cozy bed. There’s just an aura about the duvet that lends itself to better quality sleep. We all know the importance of sound sleep to our health.

One of the greatest things to love about the duvet is that it keeps you as warm as you’d like. It comes in different degrees of warmth, so you would always find one for the temperature that suits you best.

A duvet is not easy to clean and can easily be ruined if thrown into a washing machine. If you must clean it, dry-cleaning is often recommended. The good news is, proper use of a good protective duvet cover on your duvet keeps it clean and in good shape. It can even last you for numerous years to come.

 

What is a duvet cover?

A duvet cover is the protective covering for the duvet. Much like a glove protects your hand from being soiled or contaminated, a duvet cover prevents the duvet from being soiled by the elements, such as body oils, fluids, food, snacks, hair, fluff, sweat and more. Duvets are expensive and washing them is not recommended. Those with feather and silk filling are especially delicate and can be ruined by washing. If ever washed, they thoroughly must be dried for hours on end, else they'd stink. So, it's advisable to avoid washing and this is where a good duvet cover comes in.

Duvet covers are notoriously frustrating to use. But you sure need them to protect your investment in your duvet! Duvet covers can be removed and washed as needed. With different duvet covers, you can easily change the look of your bedding while using the same duvet insert, unlike with a comforter with which it's simply not an option. Imagine how many comforters you'll need to attain different looks. Oh, how about finding space to store them? Now, that would be a nightmare.
