The only thing better than getting into your bed after a long day at work is getting into your bed after a long day at work with a fluffy, super soft, warm, and solid comforter to snuggle under when you finally crawl in between the sheets. And while you might think that the best type of comforter to help you achieve this idyllic endgame is one made of goose down or eiderdown, that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, depending on where you live and what your goals are, there might be another kind of comforter that works even better.
How To Find The Best Comforter For You
There are several different materials that are used to make comforters. Of these, microfiber, down, and feathers are the most popular. These three types of materials provide both breathability and insulating properties for your comforter. Down is especially good at keeping you warm in cold weather because of its thermal characteristics.
It's also hypoallergenic which is great if you have allergies or other sensitivities to feathers or dust mites. However, it isn't as durable as some other materials and can become damaged through use over time. Feathers are a common alternative to down as they're slightly less expensive and generally easier to clean and maintain than down-filled comforters or pillows.
They aren't quite as soft but they do still offer warmth without risking any allergens. Microfiber has been rising in popularity lately as it provides many of the same benefits as down without any allergens or concerns about durability.
Linens & Hutch offers down-alternative comforters constructed of double-brushed microfiber that are both pleasant to the touch and wrinkle-resistant. Their reversible solid comforter set comes in a variety of colors, offering you versatility for your bedroom décor and choices on how to best suit your mood.
What We Recommend To Buy With Solid Comforter Sets
We recommend ordering a variety of pillows, bedsheets, and blankets to accompany your new comforter. For example Pillows – A good pillow can make a world of difference in your comfort levels. Always have a good supply on hand so you can easily rotate as they wear out. Sheets – Similar to pillows, having a variety of sheets allows you to change up your bedding to match your mood or décor style.
