Down Alternative Comforters
Beds should be cozy. When you lie down to sleep, the last thing you want is to start shivering from the cold. A good down alternative comforter is a sure way to keep the shivers at bay and feel toasty warm at night. Down alternative comforters are a more hypoallergenic version of regular down comforters that give you the warmth of down without the sniffles and sneezes that come from sleeping under a blanket full of allergens. They also make great kids' comforters if your kids have allergies. Pair an alternative down comforter with a set of flannel sheets and you'll never want to get out of bed.
Stay toasty warm at night with down alternative comforters from Kmart
When it comes to warm bedding, down sets the standard. Quilts, blankets and bedspreads are all nice, but none has the same insulating power of down. If your bedroom has a tendency to get cold at night, you could layer blanket upon blanket or you could keep warm with one breathable down comforter. Alternative down comforters, just as their name implies, are made to give the same warmth and comfort as down but with synthetic materials. They come in all the standard sizes and are a great way to keep the chills at bay.
The big advantage of alternative down is that it's hypoallergenic. Down, which comes from duck and geese, can be an allergen to some people. In addition, down comforters and other bedspreads can also attract dust mites, which is one of the most common allergens out there. Nobody wants to be cold at night, but nobody wants the sniffles, sneezes and hives of allergies either. Down alternative comforters give you the best of both worlds. They have all the warmth of down but are made with hypoallergenic synthetic materials that won't keep you awake all night sneezing.
Another big advantage of alternative down comforters is that they're machine washable. Down comforters are typically long-lasting, but they can be difficult to clean if you spill on them. Having a machine-washable down alternative comforter can save you loads of time and a trip to the dry cleaner's, especially if you have kids who tend to spill. Just take off the duvet and toss your comforter in the laundry. When it's done, your bedding will look as good as new.
One of the great things about down and down alternative comforters is that you can change their appearance with a duvet cover. Decorative bedding can be great, but the appearance of a bedspread or quilt is unchangeable. With a down alternative comforter, on the other hand, you can easily change the duvet to give your bed a totally different appearance. Duvet covers come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Duvets are also easy remove and clean, so you can toss them in the laundry without having to clean the whole comforter.
