An Overview On King Comforters
A good comforter is designed to last for a decade, so when the time comes to shop for a new comforter for your king-size bed, quality is key.
First, you’ll want to decide between a down or down-alternative comforter. Down-fill comforters are usually lighter than the alternative and have a broader comfortable-temperature range, but some are not machine washable. Synthetic-fill comforters offer the convenience of easy washing at home, but they might not breathe as well as down fill. Synthetic fill is usually heavier, too — which might be a positive for you if you prefer the weight of a heavy blanket.
Consider the season for which you’re buying your king comforter. If you live in a warmer climate, a light comforter should work well throughout most of the year. For those who live in colder climates, a heavier comforter will keep you warm through the winter months, and having a lighter comforter on hand for summer will help you sleep well through the warmer months.
Although the material of a comforter is important, it may not come into contact with your skin directly if you use a top sheet. Some consumers prefer to skip top sheets and blankets and sleep only with a fitted sheet, in which case the outer material of the comforter (or the use of a duvet cover) is crucial. You’ll want to find something that’s soft but will also hold up over many washes.
DWYM Fun Fact
Do you use a top sheet? Your answer might reveal your age. Surveys have found that younger generations are far less likely to use a top sheet. In one survey, 67% of Americans aged 55 plus believe a top sheet is essential, while only 30% of 35- to 54-year-olds feel that way. The number drops even more for the 18 to 34 age group, with only 26% needing a top sheet for a good night’s sleep. For many of these younger sleepers, a duvet or comforter is the only thing they need to sleep well. This could possibly be because it’s easier to clean comforters than it was in previous generations. Top sheets have always provided a handy barrier between the sleeper and the comforter to help keep it clean.
The King Comforter Buying Guide
- If you’re sleeping with a cover hog, you may want to size up with your comforter. That means buying a king for a queen mattress or a California king for a regular king mattress. This will give you a little extra acreage in case your partner pulls the covers away from you while sleeping.
- Allergens can be an issue with any bedding. Make sure you track down a comforter that was designed with cutting down on allergens in mind.
- The filler is an essential part of a comforter’s build. You’ll want one that’s substantial enough to keep you warm in the colder months while also avoiding clumping.
- As crisp and bright as the colors on a new comforter are, they can fade with multiple washings. Look for one made from material and dyes that will hold the color like new year after year.
- You may get sick of your comforter after a few months. A reversible comforter can keep things fresh. If you tire of one color or design, simply flip it and redecorate your room to match.
- Comforters are sold in various forms. Some brands package the comforter for sale on its own, while others include pillow shams to go with it. If you buy a reversible comforter kit, you’ll want to make sure the shams are reversible as well. Some comforters come with pillowcases and even sheets, giving you everything you need to set up a new bed.
