Snuggling under the covers and pulling your warm and cozy comforter up to your chin is so pleasant on cold winter nights. When the comforter is a luxurious, beautiful one, it feels even better. There are several popular types of luxurious comforters available and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. When most people think of luxurious comforters, they picture white plushy down filled bed covers. These comforters are so soft and so warm that it's no wonder they are very popular. If you have been afraid to use a down comforter because you are concerned that someone in your family will be allergic to down, you may be pleasantly surprised to know that new cleaning methods have been developed that help remove allergens and debris from down to make it hypoallergenic. If you love down, but you have a polyester budget, then you may want to look for a synthetic down comforter.
These safeguards are filled with special material that feels almost as soft and warm as real down. And there are lots of choices of duvet covers to choose for you down or synthetic down comforter so you can easily match your décor or change it whenever you want. Duvet covers also help keep a down comforter or synthetic down comforter clean so you will not need to have them professionally cleaned as often. If a down comforter is not quite your style, you may want to look for a sophisticated satin comforter instead.
These comforters come in a wide range of brilliant jewel tone colors, but you can also find them in classic black. Of course, satin can be a bit slippery and does not breathe well. Silk comforters are quite beautiful, but are not as slippery as satin. Silk comforters are very lightweight, but this does not stop them from being warm and cozy. With the increase in environmental awareness, these quilts made with natural fibers are really growing in popularity.
However, silk comforters require special care, so do not wash them without checking the cleaning instructions on the care tag. Suede comforters are perfect for a masculine bedroom, but are a bit on the heavy side. If you are concerned about caring for a suede comforter, you may want to consider a micro-suede comforter instead. Micro-suede looks like real suede, but it is easier to care for and much lighter. While suede rarely is quilted, you can find quite a few micro-suede comforters with quilted designs. If none of these luxurious comforters are right for you, you may want to take a close look at velvet comforters.
These comforters provide a sumptuous, warm night's sleep. Just be prepared to have your quilt professionally cleaned if it is made with velvet. Whichever comforter you choose, you'll be sure to sleep better when you are feeling warm and cozy.
