Getting a good night's sleep isn't a luxury , it's something we all need. Without it, we cannot perform at our best, and we feel tired and restless. Of course, duvet choice is crucial to getting that good night's sleep and the feeling of freshness and rejuvenation that follows.
We tend to think about clothing when choosing a comforter, and we certainly need to make sure we have the right comforter for the climate or time of year. But what about the size of the duvets? Isn't that also important?
Certainly yes. Choosing the right duvet is much more than choosing a single duvet for a single bed , a double duvet for a double bed , or perhaps a king size duvet for an extra-large bed . In this article, we'll look at exactly how to find the right size duvet for your bed.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT DUVET SIZE
Duvet sizes are important for two reasons: aesthetics and comfort.
From an aesthetic standpoint , your bed simply won't look good without the right size duvet . Obviously a single duvet will look weird and out of place on a double bed, and vice versa, but there are other factors to consider. The specific size of the bed is important here – bed sizes go far beyond the overly simple classification of single and double. If you don't choose the right size, your bed - and even your entire bedroom - will look a little odd.
From a comfort standpoint, you need a comforter that covers the sleeper(s) without dragging on the floor or taking over the bed. This is only possible with a duvet that is the right size for your mattress .
Consumers have a large number of different sizes of duvets available to them , and the choice can sometimes be a little too vast. However, the size of the duvet can be determined quickly and easily.
To find the size comforter you need for your bed, measure the size of the mattress itself. Remember that the size of the mattress is not the same as the size of the duvet that fits it. You'll also need to consider the thickness of the mattress itself - for thicker mattresses, a slightly wider and longer comforter will be necessary.
To get a rough idea, measure the length and width of the mattress. Then measure the thickness of the mattress and add this third measurement to the length and width values.
You can learn more about these crucial measurements and the comforter size categories they represent below.
