Depending on who you ask, we spend anywhere from ⅓ to ½ of our lives sleeping, so the comforter you have on your bed plays a big role in your life. In other words, buying a new comforter is a decision not to be taken lightly. When it’s time to buy a new bed comforter, here are three main things you’ll need to consider before spending your money.

Hypoallergenic

Even if you don’t have any known allergies, it is always better to err on the safe side and opt for a bed comforter that is hypoallergenic. Not only will that keep you from any allergic reactions or other sensitivities from flaring up, it will also ensure you don’t get poked by any feather quills while you’re trying to rest. That’s the whole reason you’re in bed, right? We thought so.

Machine Washable

Chances are good none of us are cleaning our bed comforters as often as we should be. And when it’s difficult to clean, it’s going to happen even less. Thus, it’s important to look for a bed comforter that is machine washable to help make the annoyance of laundry duty easier. Get one that allows you to wash it in your machine at home using either the gentle or delicate setting to keep things intact.

Box Stitch

While a box stitching style is certainly pleasing to the eye, it does far more than just pull together your room to feel like a well-decorated haven. Box stitched bed comforters promise resistance from fraying as well as sliding around, so that you don’t wake up in the middle of the night with your comforter on the floor. This type of stitching gives your comforter a longer life, and the ability to withstand multiple washings.
