15 Duvets For Your Daughter’s New Dorm

Sending off your daughter to university to explore her independence and start up her own life is a difficult process. During this period of packing and planning, take a few hours out of your schedule for some bonding time. Together, make a date out of shopping for the perfect duvet for your young woman’s first home away from home.

Things To Consider:

  • Discover what sort of bed she’ll have use of in residence; it will most likely be either a double or a twin depending on the type of room.
  • Consider a second duvet as a wise investment so that when laundry day rolls around she can change her sheets without waiting for the other ones to cycle through the wash.
  • Although white is not a recommended colour for duvet cover it can be ideal for looking neat, crisp and contemporary.
  • Keep in mind that you are shopping for or with you daughter and that this bedding is something she should want to wake up looking at for the next eight months of the year. With that in mind consider her style and taste before making any decisions.
