Gravity IS Your Friend!

Attention all IKEA lovers! This blog is for you.

I cannot stop laughing every time I see the new Ikea commercial. The new ad found on iSpot shows off one woman’s exceptional love of her bedding as fashion! She is sporting the IKEA BLÅRIPS King Duvet Cover Set like it’s going out of style! But why would it?

Where your bedding as a shaw!

The funny thing about duvets is, no matter how fashionable the style, duvet covers can be a little tricky to insert correctly. Doing simple decorating updates, like switching out some bedding, shouldn’t be a chore. Think about it. You order your brand new duvet cover, wait patiently for it to arrive, and now you’re tasked with trying to stuff a duvet insert into your beautiful new bedding! It can be a pain to get the insert to lay correctly.

We only want the FLUFFIEST duvets here at Tweak Your Space!

We have a 3-step process when it comes to inserting inserts. I’m going to let you in on some tips and tricks of the trade! The main take away is to use gravity to your advantage. It makes dropping the insert into the duvet cover a breeze, and helps eliminate bunching. The trick is to go to the top of the stairs, drape the cover over the railing and start stuffing the insert inside. For a flawless look, remember to tie all four corners so the insert won’t slide around. Then, close it all up by fastening the buttons “inward” so they’re hidden! If you don’t live in a 2-story home, consider standing on your bed, a chair, even a small ladder to give yourself some height. I’ve even gone outside and used the railing on an elevated deck. Anywhere where I could get gravity to help me make this process a little easier.

Use gravity to your advantage when inserting an insert into your duvet cover.
