Duvet Inserts + Mattress Pads

DUVET INSERTS + MATTRESS PADS

 

A duvet cover is an excellent choice for any teenage room. It gives you the opportunity to swap out the covers as your mood and style change. The bed is easy to make with only a fitted sheet - because every minute before heading to school counts - and the cover is easier to launder in your mom's washing machine than huge comforters. If you've found the perfect duvet cover and are left wondering how to choose from the many options of fill inserts, here are some helpful tips to help you narrow it all down.

 

Size

 

Know the size of your mattress before buying a comforter. It's tempting to fall in love with bedding that's just a little off. For example, a queen size and a king size are not the same. A duvet cover is particularly important because you've got to insert the fill. Don't take the attention away from your awesome comforter because it looks sloppy from a poorly filled insert.

 

Personalization

 

Your bedding can be as unique as you are. From a duvet and pillow, to pads and covers for mattresses - it's all subjective. Your body temperature is essential. Are you hot or cold natured? Do you prefer a luxurious feel, or do you stick to the basics? If allergies are involved, there are plenty of organic, hypoallergenic options in all sizes. The point is, don't put all your energy into the look of your bedding, then buy any old fill or mattress pad. You want it to look and feel great. After all, you'll be sleeping in it perhaps longer than you'll be looking at it.

Care

 

Check both the duvet comforter fill and the duvet cover to see if it's machine washable. There's nothing wrong with having special instructions, but you want to make that a conscious choice. Know what you're willing to do with your bedding. Most options are machine washable, which is much more convenient than other bedding when laundering it yourself. Instead of a bulky comforter, you just throw in the sheet around it. A duvet also takes away that extra layer of a top sheet because it is the top sheet, leaving just one sheet and the cover to wash.

 

Weather

 

It's helpful to have two separate fillers for your cover if you live in a seasonal part of the world. Instead of piling on extra covers in the winter, have a heavier down fill for cold nights. A duvet cover with a lighter fabric is perfect for summer, like satin or a breathable organic cotton. For winter, a flannel cover or a heavier fabric cover mixed with a thick down fill will keep you warm all season long.
