So, what's the difference between a comforter and a duvet cover and why should you choose one over the other? Let me break it all down for you.
Comforters are a one-and-done piece, there’s nothing to insert or remove. Just throw it on your bed and go on about your way. Pick something versatile that you can live with for a while since comforters tend to cost more. Comforters can also be more difficult to launder as they are pretty bulky. Make sure your washing machine can handle the size and if not, be prepared to pay for a dry cleaning service or take a trip to the dreaded laundromat.
What is a duvet cover? Think of it as a giant pillow sham that will require a little work. You'll need to start with a plain white duvet or white blanket. The duvet cover will slip over this and button or zip up. The good thing is you can change these covers often if you decide to change up your room. Duvet covers are usually less expensive than comforters. Cleaning your duvet cover is much easier since you just slip it off the duvet and throw it in the washer.
I'm not saying one is better than the other, but maybe one is better for you. If you don't love change and have ample laundering options, perhaps a comforter is the way to go. If you do love change, then maybe try out a duvet cover. If you really have no preference, just flip a coin or buy whatever speaks to you.
