What is the Best Material for a Comforter Set?

This is largely based on your personal preferences. Do you get hot easily throughout the night? If you do, we recommend a microfiber comforter lightly filled with polyester.

If you have a hard time staying warm, then a cotton comforter stuffed with down might be worth looking into. Microfiber is an all-around good choice because it is soft, and it won’t make you too hot or too cold.

What to Look for in a Black Comforter Set

Next, we’d like to pull out our magnifying glasses and show you what specifics to look for in a quality black comforter. Almost all black comforters have the packaging to make it seem as if they are the best one, but we know better.

With this simple guide, you’ll know how to pick out the perfect black comforter for you.

Sizing

Picking out the right size comforter for your bed is very easy! Bed sizes, and therefore comforter sizes, are available in the following types:

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King

Sometimes, full/queen is listed together, and these comforters would fit either a full or a queen-sized bed. You can measure your bed to determine its size to make sure you’re buying the right comforter if you’re unsure which type it is.

Buying comforters too big or too small will look awkward or bulky, so the size is important.

Material

Great black comforters can come in many different material types. For people who get hot easily and don’t enjoy sleeping with heavy blankets, we recommend polyester for how lightweight and breathable it is.

Microfiber is a wonderful choice for people who want a really soft material to snuggle up in. If you’re the type of person who gets cold easily, consider trying a heavier material that is designed to keep in the warmth.

Fill Type

Most black comforters have either microfiber or polyester filling. Either of these types of filling makes for a great comforter, and it really depends on your preferences for materials when choosing the best one.

It is important to make sure the black comforter you’re buying is sewn in a way that the filling will not spill from one pocket to another, or else it could become bunched up. No one wants that.

Quality

Do you want to know a really easy trick for determining if a comforter is high-quality or not? Apart from checking the brand of the comforter, check the product reviews. If there is a pressing issue with a particular comforter, people are bound to have said something about it.

On the flip side, a lot of people who really love their comforter will want to express why and give you specific details about the comforter that may not be listed in the product description. When in doubt, check what others have said.

Price

The price of your black comforter is going to vary based on a few different factors. What we mean is:

  • How big do you want your comforter to be?
  • What material do you want your comforter to be made from?
  • Do you want a complete set or just a comforter?
  • How many pieces in a set are you looking for?

The answers to all these questions will play a role in how expensive your black comforter is going to be. Not to mention, black comforters vary in price based on quality. We wouldn’t pay less than $20, and we wouldn’t pay more than $300.

Comes with All Parts

It wouldn’t be much of a comforter “set” without the other pieces! It should specify in the product description of the black comforter you’re looking at whether or not it comes with other parts. These included parts should be:

  • Pillowcases
  • Fitted sheet
  • Flat sheet

Sometimes, black comforter sets will come with pillow shams in addition to pillowcases. Not all sets will provide this, but we appreciate the ones that do so you can have a luxurious, matching aesthetic across your bed.

How to Wash a Black Comforter

A lot of comforters can be washed like normal by putting them in the washing machine with a gentle detergent and drying them in the dryer. For the best results to make sure the filling doesn’t bunch itself up, we always wash comforters on the delicate cycle.

Also, since comforters are so thick, it is easy for the detergent to stay trapped inside of them after one wash. Wash your comforter a second time without using detergent to make sure it is actually clean and not filled with the same soap you used to wash it.

Drumroll, please! This is the moment we’ve been waiting for! We get to show you our 7 top recommendations for the best black comforter sets.

Every part of this room is inviting, from the use of a cozy-looking black comforter on the bed to the stark, contrasting white walls and cute accessories on the bedside table.

How to Style a Black Comforter

Black goes with everything, right? Not necessarily. Yes, it’s easy to style and pair with various pieces of décor. But if you want to optimize the look of your black comforter, follow these tips.

Monochrome Décor

The safest bet is to go all black. Monochrome means that everything falls under the tone of black. SO, colors such as dark grey, charcoal, jet black, blue-black, etc. all work well in this case.

Go Witchy

The color black is often thrown in with the term witchy. But that doesn’t mean you have to make your bedroom look like Halloween. Use your black comforter as an anchor in the room and add some witchy, or even spiritual décor.

Things like hanging plants, large gemstones, floating shelves with leather-bound books, candles, etc.

Black and Gold Décor

One color that always goes with black no matter what is gold. Whether it’s in the tone of your linens, or in the form of metallic accents, gold is a great element to pair with a black comforter. Try adding it with things such as lamps, candle holders, wall art, etc.

What Bedroom Furniture Goes with a Black Comforter?

Dresser

If you’re going with a monochromatic look, opt for a dark-colored dresser and nightstands.

Tip: Save money by painting your existing bedroom furniture!

If not, pick a dresser and nightstand that compliment the black comforter. Something lighter, perhaps with gold accents.

Bed Frame

You’ve got options here. If your bed frame is visible, such as a platform bed, go for one that’s upholstered in a black or contrasting lighter color. If going with wood construction, pick something lighter such as maple or birch to make the black comforter pop.

Bench or Ottoman

Adding a bench or ottoman to your bedroom can only enhance the look and function. It can double as storage as well as offer comfortable seating. When pairing it with a black comforter, go with something in a leather finish.
