You may have found yourself wondering if you should choose a duvet or comforter for your bedroom, or even asking yourself what are the real differences between the two! Read on to learn the solid differences between a duvet and comforter, and what makes duvets so popular so you can see if one would be right for you.

What is a Comforter?

Before we get into duvets, it’s important to understand the difference between them and comforters. More than likely, you are familiar with what a comforter is compared to a duvet – or at least you’ve heard the word used often before. A comforter is essentially a thick singular blanket that is typically filled with synthetic stuffing that has been sewn between pieces of fabric and cannot be removed. Normally comforters are placed on top of thinner bed sheets and its primary purposes are providing a pleasing appearance to the bed it is on top of in addition to providing soft cushioning and warmth to the individual using it.

What is a Duvet?

The word Duvet has a French origin (which is why in its pronunciation you omit the ‘t’), that means ‘down’. Although its meaning at first may seem a bit perplexing, it begins to make sense when you take into consideration that duvets are also sometimes referred to as a ‘down comforter’. Some state that duvets are similar to comforters, while nay-sayers believe they belong to a completely different category of their own. Duvets in short are a soft and airy filler that usually is covered by a dual sided sheet of soft fabric with one end that is sewn shut with the other end that has an opening. The concept is very similar to a pillow and pillowcase – the duvet acts as the pillow and a duvet cover acts as the pillow case.

Types of Duvets

The filling that is inside of a duvet plays a critical role – it determines the overall feel and experience the user of the duvet has. The two main options to choose from are synthetic and natural, with synthetic typically being a common cheaper approach or for those with allergy sensitivities. Although synthetic is more affordable, by taking this route you are missing out on more breathable material that is provided by natural filler. An example of a natural filler would be geese feathers, which provide the pillow-y softness and breathe ability that duvets are well known for.

A Duvet’s Many Uses

Although its definition of being a sheet of fabric with filling may seem a bit dull, duvets tend to be anything but. Duvets are known for being able to come in a vast range of different colors and styles that will amp up any bedroom and add a unique flair. This capability leads many to invest in purchasing a wide range of duvets so they are able to easily switch up the style of their bed without much effort since they retain the same filling. With the versatility of a duvet, you are free to go from bedding with bold intricate patterns, to delicate pastel frills or just classic white. See below for just a few of the many duvet options that are out there:
