With the not so cool thought in mind that cooler weather will be upon us sooner rather than later, it’s time to start thinking of preparing for the cold.
And if you are one of those people who only pull out their duvet in the winter, this includes you. Or maybe you’re like me and you like to keep your bedroom cool and brisk all year round, just so you can continue snuggling under your duvet. Either way, an important factor is your duvet cover.
Maybe you changed up the colors in your bedroom—because lock down bored you to tears and you had to do something—and need a new cover to match. Or maybe yours has been washed to the point it’s starting to fray. Either way, we have you covered. Okay, not really. But here are some great suggestions to help you make the right decision.
You may not realize it but there are some important considerations. From the fabric you chose, the closure style, whether or not it’s eco-friendly, and whether is has some sort of fasteners are all considerations.
So let’s get started.
