RedHeadKel:  I live in WA so it’s much warmer here, but I’m still very much a fan of a down comforter. We have one and use that, and I add a down blanket on my side when it gets really, really cold. I love duvets because bedding is something I love shopping for and it’s a reasonably priced way to update your bedroom.

We use a duvet with an ikea cover! We also have a big plush blanket because my boyfriend likes to sleep with that when he gets too warm under the duvet with me. This time of year flannel sheets! It’s nice having a removable cover on a duvet, we often kick down the top sheet and sleep with just the duvet and we have a cat and dog that sometimes come into bed too! I like washable things 🙂

RedHeadKel:  Another Minnesota gal here. I would never put a Duvet on, not warm enough.  Comforter or heavy duty homemade quilt.  We have this awesome comforter that I actually need to get out soon.

a quilt his grandma made.

These quilts are only for married grandkids, however, last year, his grandma made him one and gave it to him , said not to tell anyone. He wasn’t sure if it was a getting older thing or a you’ll never find anyone thing- a few months later he and I started dating 🙂 Less than 1 year later, engaged!

I have a quilted wool duvet, which I love.  There are techiques that make changing large duvet covers a lot easier too. Google “burrito duvet” or “burrito duvet method” and it should show some good videos on how to do it.

We have a duvet, but I grew up with a comforter. Also, Fiance comes from a family where they don’t use a flat sheet, which I think is weird, and it’s always a struggle to convince him that I should put one on the bed.

RedHeadKel:  We use duvets in U.K. I can’t imagine anything else! They’re very toasty 🙂

CanadaMoose:  I’ve never heard of anyone not using a flat sheet.  When they buy a set, what do they do with it??

No flat sheets is very typical for the duvet cover user. Flat sheets are handy for those who don’t have a cover on their covers.

NFLwidow:  Very interesting!  I guess having grown up with regular comforters and using a flat sheet, I would have (and probably still will) just continued using a flat sheet even with the duvet cover.

There’s no rule against flat sheets, really. It’s a laundering issue. Or personal preference. Or just habit. I can’t deny that it’s a bit easier to make the bed when it’s duvet cover only. One or two flicks and wah-lah. Done. Whereas the flat sheet would have to be pulled and smoothed, then the duvet on top of that, and then wah-lah.

NFLwidow:  True, true.  I’m the one that makes the bed, so I can see how that would be tempting. 😛
