Give Your Bedroom The Five-Star Makeover With Duvet

Many homes in Nigeria do not use duvet because they believe it’s too thick for Nigerian weather. Some believe duvet is for the upper class but duvet has no owner. So far as you have a home where you lay your head, you can get a duvet.

It is unarguable that when the weather becomes very hot, it can be uncomfortable using a duvet. We are in luck that the rainy season is here and as the rain keeps pouring, the weather keeps getting cooler. As far as Nigeria is concerned, we are in our own winter season.


This is the time to invest in the fancy and very classy bedding duvet. It will not only wade off the chilly breeze that sneaks in from your shut windows, it also adds a touch of luxury to your bedroom.

Once the rain is gone and the weather becomes warmer, you can fold up the duvet and store them in the closet if you are worried about washing it regularly because of sweat.  If you do not want them in the closet, they can be rolled up on the bedside when you are ready for bed. This way, you get to beautify your bed when you are tidying up.

Some very thick duvet can double and a sleeping bag or when there are visitors. Duvet keeps family together. Because it is large bedding consisting of a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers, wool, silk or a synthetic alternative, and typically protected with a removable cover, a family with very young children can cuddle together under it for fun.

Sleepers often use a duvet without a top bed sheet, as the duvet cover can readily be removed and laundered as often as the bottom bed sheet.

Duvet can also serve as safety mat for your six-month old when he or she is ready to practice crawling.

Every classy Five star hotel, have duvets in their bedroom. So why give your bedroom the five-star make over by investing in colourful duvet.
