Choosing a comforter can be overwhelming. Down, down alternative, washable, dry clean only, spot clean—you name it! It can be hard to know where to start. That's why we've put together this quick guide. Here's everything you need to consider before buying the comforter of your dreams:
When you're choosing a comforter, the fill makes all the difference. From the type to the amount, getting the right fill is the key to finding the right bedding for you. Down comforters and duvet inserts are a great natural option for your sleeping comfort. This time-tested fill can provide just the right amount of warmth without all the weight. High-quality down has the highest fill power. "Fill power" measures the amount of space down takes up in the comforter or its fluffiness. Keep in mind that fill power is not indicated by the weight of the comforter because more often than not synthetic fillers weight more than down.
Down alternative comforters are an excellent option for those who are allergic to down. Down alternative can be comprised of any material that is not down, but more often than not, it is a synthetic material. They usually are not as warm as down comforters but can be significantly heavier to get an equivalent fill power to their down counterparts. With that being said, the amount of fill used can help influence the warmth of a down comforter.
Down by far is the better fill choice in terms of warmth. This material was crafted by nature to hold heat and maintain a consistent amount of warmth. That's why you need to consider what weight comforter you need carefully. Some people tend to run hot in their sleep, and others prefer to be enveloped in fluffy comfort, either way, depending on your comforters' fill and density the amount of warmth it provides can vary. If you're looking for an all-season cover, consider a medium weight comforter. These down comforters can your bed from summer to winter in a snap.
Kohl's selection of king-size, queen-size and twin comforters provide an extra layer of comfort during the winter months. It may seem pretty straightforward to choose the comforter size that correlates with your bed, but if you like a little extra wiggle room, we recommend going up a size. Sizing up allows your comforter to hang a little lower on your bed and provide a luxurious hotel feel. Also, it can help keep the peace when your partner decides to hog all the covers. Imagine waking up every day nestled in warm, fluffy comfort.
Duvet covers are a great way to help maintain your comforters. While they are typically used with duvet inserts, down bedding is a great alternative. Even if you use a colored comforter, you can give your bed a new look for a fraction of the cost with a duvet cover. This idea comes in handy when you're shopping for bedding for a king-size or California king size bed.
