Nowadays, most bedrooms are air conditioned. With the onset of global warming, there are few countries left in this world that can live without a fan or an air conditioner during the summer months, no matter how cold it gets during the winter months. As a result, rooms that needed no quilt or blanket during the summer months seem to call for covers when the air conditioner or the cooler makes it unbearably cold at night. For these reasons, comforters sets have become a necessity in most bedrooms.
What These Sets Comprise Of
While the comforters sets initially started off as cotton quilt like covers to use over oneself in cold rooms, with time these have evolved as bed sets as well. As the comforter is the largest piece of cover on a bed besides the bedspreads or quilts used in winter, the comforters on the beds in summer call for coordinated bed sets in the form of pillow covers, duvet covers, side pillows and so forth. There are some sets which come with matching day pillows and comforters while others come with more options. Again, one can add or remove items from such sets and create sets of their own.
How To Use Comforters
As the comforters sets essentially consist of comforters that are quilted cotton fabrics, these are usually used as partial covers for the beds, especially when the bed is made ready for sleeping. Day covers or duvet covers can be used as bedspreads during the summer months and the comforters can be put aside during daytime. At night time or when one feels the need for covers, with the air conditioning on, they can find the covers at their feet, ready to be pulled over their body.
There are options when purchasing comforters sets. You can select single sets or double sets with options for queen or king sized beds. The measurements are usually detailed in the online stores that sell them as well as on the product themselves. It is important to check out the dimensions before purchase so that one does not end up with a comforter that covers only half the bed and leaves your partner out in the cold.
