A forest green down comforter can give your bedroom a tranquil and restful look.
The Lowdown on Down Comforters
Green is a great color choice for a comforter. A green comforter can add an element of serenity to your bedroom and give you a place to escape to after a stressful day. There are a few things to consider when you start shopping for your comforter.
Most Down Comforters Are White
You need to realize that down comforters are expensive to manufacture and expensive to buy. There is a very limited palette for a comforter. In fact, you won't find a wide range of colors and patterns in down comforters.
Manufacturers produce either white, off-white or beige down comforters. This is because a white or beige comforter will sell when a colored or patterned comforter will have a limited market. Having down comforters that don't sell would quickly put a manufacturer out of business.
Down Is Longlasting
Another consideration is that a comforter is an investment that will last for decades if you take care of it. Few people could afford to purchase another comforter just to change the color. That's why duvet covers are available.
Down Comforter Is Really a Duvet
It's easy to get confused with the different bedding terminology and bedding. For example, a comforter is typically made of any kind of filler except down. To make the distinction, the industry calls a down comforter a duvet or duvet insert. However, modern duvets may also be made out of other fillers as well. The important thing to remember is that a down comforter is a duvet. So how do you get a forest green comforter? The down comforter (duvet) slips inside a duvet cover, similar to how a pillow is inserted into a pillowcase.
Purpose of a Duvet Cover
A duvet cover is used to protect the down comforter. The cover can be made out of any kind of material, patterns and colors, just like any other comforter or bedspread. The cover makes your down comforter investment versatile since you have a wide range of selections that can transform your duvet into any look you desire and change the overall appearance of your bedroom décor. Duvet covers are often considerably less expensive than the down comforter. You may want to buy more than one to change the cover to create a new style, color or pattern.
