Do or Don’t: Two Duvets on One Bed

Two duvets on one bed, Scandinavian style

After seven years of marriage, Alex and I still fight over the covers. So, my eyes popped last night when…

…while reading blogs on my sofa, I stumbled upon a post about how some Swiss couples prefer two small duvets on one bed. Have you ever heard of that? Have you tried it?

Apparently, two duvets make sleeping really comfortable. You don’t have to play tug-of-war with the covers; you can roll around; you can stick a foot out each side, if you’d like!

After going down a rabbit hole online, I saw that people in many countries — including Germany, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Finland — like having two duvets on one bed. And they say that if you try it, you’ll never go back. “We slept like babies,” says Kate. “I got the most sound sleep,” says Amanda. “It has made my life better,” says Rebecca.



Thoughts? Would you try it?

P.S. Beautiful ceramics, and parenting around the world.

    My husband and I just returned from a trip to Iceland and Norway and discovered this amazing idea! We are on our way for new bedding right now! Best idea ever!

  2. I read this post and the original a few weeks ago. Talked it over with my husband and I’m purchasing two twin comforters for our king TEMPUR-PEDIC bed this weekend. More to come…

    We’ve been traveling in Europe (and are in Amsterdam right now with two duvets). I think we are going to give it a try!

    Two twin duvets should be perfect on a king bed. Happy sleeping!
