As we said, the filling of the duvets is very important. In addition to filling you can also look at the warmth class. If you want a warm duvet, you need a lower warmth class. A great compromise is an all-season duvet made of synthetic or natural materials. You combine them in winter and can take one off in the summer when you need less warmth. Another solution is a special summer duvet (warmth class 4) and a winter duvet (warmth class 1) with different warmth classes.
Which pillow you sleep on is a very personal choice and depends on your sleeping position in bed. Side sleepers need the highest and hardest pillow; stomach sleepers need the softest high pillow and back sleepers require a medium pillow that's not too hard and not too high. In pillows, too, the type of filling is very important. You can choose a pillow filled with down, synthetic material, wool, kapok, latex and/or memory foam. Are you allergic? Go for an anti-allergic pillow.
Lengths of duvets
It's important to have a duvet in the right size. In the Netherlands the standard length of a duvet is 200cm or 220cm. The principle is as follows: People who are up to 1.80m tall select a duvet that's 200cm long; people who are taller than 1.80m select a duvet that's 220cm long.
Width of the duvets
The standard width of a duvet is 140cm for a single or one-person duvet and 200cm or 240cm for a double or two-person duvet. In general you will choose a duvet that's about 60cm wider than the size of your bed. If you have a bed or boxspring bed that's 180x200cm big, the best choice would be a duvet that's 240x200cm, or 240x220 cm.
