The traditional way of sleeping in the UK involved a sheet on the bed covered with a blanket. Lots of people still use this simple method. It’s still common in some B+Bs and small hotels because it’s easy to clean and to change. However, there is little doubt that the duvet is the more common way of keeping warm at night.
The duvet originated in central Europe where it consisted of a quilted sheet stuffed with eider down – duck feathers. The collections of feathers acted as insulators, keeping the sleeper warm and cosy. Duvets really started to infiltrate the UK in the mid 20th century and gradually came to conquer the bedroom.
More and more people started choosing duvets over the traditional blanket method. Popular opinion seemed to be that the duvet was warmer and more comfortable than a sheet and itchy blanket. Studies also seemed to back this up, with duvets being found to keep you warmer and allow less heat to escape during the night.
These days most of us use duvets without even thinking about it. There are few things more comfortable than a really big quilted duvet with some new or freshly washed sheets. Snuggle up under the covers and let the duvet warm you up. Keep your little ones warm and cosy with kid’s duvets or small single duvets. Mum and dad can keep warm under a double or king size duvet too.
Another great thing about the duvet is that you can choose the bed sheets to match your design or colour scheme. You don’t have to buy a new blanket every time you want to make change in the bedroom. Affordable bedding simply fits over the duvet, meaning you can make a change when you want to. Some people even like to have a thicker, warmer winter duvet and a lighter duvet for the summer months. This way you can regulate your temperature and stay comfortable in the bed, no matter what the weather.
If you’re still a traditionalist and like sleeping under a blanket, it’s definitely time you gave the duvet a go. Our continental cousins have given us a lot over the years but perhaps nothing as good as a duvet.
This is a guest post from Sainsbury’s. If you are looking to keep snug and warm at Sainsbury’s there’s an impressive range of duvets for all size beds. Visit their website today for more information.
