Posted by swapnil jukunte on November 16th, 2020

The cold wintery time is the best time of the year when you don't want to leave the warmness of your house, and it is even more difficult to get up in the morning when you are coiled up inside the warmth of the comforter. A good comforter does that to you, it gives warmth and comfort and should be able to sustain for at least a couple of years. Hence it is essential to be sure when you are buying a comforter. You can buy comforter online, or you can go to the store and purchase it in person. Purchasing a good comforter is like an investment as it is for keeps for at least 8-10 years; hence it is imperative to buy durable and good quality of comforter. Below are some of the essential you should be looking at while purchasing a comforter.

Decide on your preference of Fill Type.

Unlike buying bedsheets like Lilly Plus Super King Bedsheet or Lilly Plus Double Size Bedsheet from Stellar Homes, purchasing a comforter is not one size fits all. You have to decide upon the kind of fill you want for your comforter first, whether it is down or down alternative. If you choose down alternative fill material, then it is filled with cotton, polyester or rayon fabric while the feathers of ducks or geese are used as their fill material for Down fill type. Comforter with Down alternative fill type is cheaper than Down fill type.

Consider Fill Power.

When you buy bed linen online, you do consider the quality of the materials similarly when you buy comforter combo; it is essential to know their fill power. Fill power is the amount of space down takes in the comforter, the more the fill power more the warmth in the comforter. For more warmth and toasty feeling, you should opt for a comforter with a fill power of more than 600.

The Size of the Comforter

It goes without saying that you should purchase the right size of the comforter, which will fit your bed size. The way you buy single size bedsheets for a single bed and king size bedsheets for large beds similarly you should purchase the comforters too. Too small a comforter is less functional while too large will drape more from sides. So the size of the comforter is directly proportional to the size of your bed and your preference as well.

Although you got a basic idea about purchasing a comforter, it is also essential to keep it clean, as regular washing of the comforter is not feasible, and it also takes away the life of the comforter. Hence, it is advisable to use either a comforter cover or duvet cover to ensure that it lasts long. Since you will be using a comforter for at least 8-10 years, you should take your time while deciding on the comforter which suits you the best, in terms of style as well as in terms of preference.
