As with everything else in the hospitality industry, there are pros and cons to the decisions you will have to make regarding the products for your clients. Today we are going to discuss the pros and cons of using down duvet inserts versus down alternatives.
Down Duvet Inserts
It is tough to beat the feel of a genuine down-filled duvet insert. You can get a lot of heat trapped under the comforter to keep a patron warm without adding a lot of weight to the bed. At the same time, down has a tendency to breathe, so you can also keep guests cooler in warm weather.
There are two main issues with down comforters. First of all, they tend to attract mites and can lead to an allergic reaction for those who are sensitive to this type of comforter filling. Second, they are usually not machine washable, so you have to use it as a duvet insert without the option of using the comforter alone.
Down Alternative Duvet Inserts
Down alternatives are usually more affordable, they are often machine washable, and most are made in a hypoallergenic manner. In other words, a down alternative will fix all of the main problems you experience from down. On the flip side, you may need to offer different inserts in summer and winter since they have a tendency not to breathe as well as natural fibers.
