If you’re in the market for a new comforter, you may not realize that a lot more goes into choosing the right one besides appearance.
Yes, that’s right, there is more to a comforter than just the way it looks with your bedroom’s design. If you’ve ever bought a comforter that was too stiff or warm, then you know there's such a thing as the wrong one. If you want the best comforter, there are some things to check for the next time you go shopping for one. Here are five tips that will help you find the best comforter:
1. Know What Size Comforter You Need
If you’re unsure if you have a full or queen mattress size, now’s the time to find out what size bed you have. After all, you wouldn’t want to buy a comforter to find out that it’s too small once you bring it home. Comforters come in a range of sizes depending on the size of your mattress. At American Minky Products, we offer four different comforter sizes.
2. Understand How to Properly Care for and Clean Your Comforter
Before purchasing a comforter, make sure to read the care label instructions. Different comforters will have different cleaning instructions. Some can be cleaned in the washer and others will need to be dry cleaned. Then there will be those that can only be spot cleaned. If you choose to buy a comforter from American Minky Products, the good news is that most minky comforters can be machine washed. Select a comforter with care and cleaning instructions that you are comfortable with.
3. Have an Idea of What Fill Power Means
Fill power is what determines how warm a comforter is. A comforter with a higher fill power will be warmer than one with a lower fill power. Some comforters don’t necessarily have a fill power, but sometimes you can check their labels for a fill power equivalent. Anything with a fill power of 600 or greater will be a warmer comforter.
4. Select the Right Warmth for You
Everyone needs different environments to sleep in. Some people may need to be warm, while others may prefer to be cold when they sleep. No matter what you prefer, select a comforter that provides the right temperature for you. If you prefer the temperature to be cold, look for a light and fluffy comforter. But if you rather be warm, then choose a thicker one. There are comforters to fit everyone’s preferences, so you’re sure to find one at the perfect temperature.
5. Look for High-Quality Craftsmanship
In the past, if you’ve had a comforter that only lasted a couple of years, this may be from no fault of your own. Sometimes comforters don’t have the best craftsmanship. If this is the case, they can easily fall apart or become worn very quickly. If you’re looking for something that will last, pay attention to the quality of the craftsmanship.
While these aren’t the only factors that go into choosing the best comforter, they can help you find the best one for your preferences. Be sure to also consider color, style, material, and the design of the type of comforter you want. Once you figure out the type of comforter that suits you best, it will be easier to look for the right one next time.
