    Default Duvet cover opening-- top or bottom of bed??

    This has been bothering me for YEARS! Which way do I put my duvet cover on my bed? Does the opening/buttons go towards the top of the bed by your head or towards the bottom?

    I usually put them on the top of the bed, but I think it could work either way.

    I've done the buttons at the top for several years, but there was a gardenweb thread a few months back that I bumped into where people insisted it belongs at the bottom. I told DH and he started putting the duvet on that way (I make him stick the comforter inside the duvet cover because he has an easier time with his long arms. THat's my story and I'm sticking to it).

    Buttons at the bottom! I'm aghast at the notion of the buttons chafing against my chin or chest when I sleep!

    And we have a encasing for dust mites in between the comforter and the comforter cover and the zipper for that goes into the comforter cover first to ensure that I never ever touch the zipper with my feet.

    Bottom of the bed! Ours has buttons, it would annoy me to no end to feel it near my face.

    See, I've never had the buttons bother my face. Apparently I'm low maintenance that way, LOL. But I've since switched to buttons at the bottom, because I feel like I should!
