The thought of assembling a duvet can be daunting. Try this hack for a quicker method. Lay the duvet inside out with the opening at the foot of the bed. Spread the comforter or insert overtop of the duvet so that the edges line up. Next, roll up the duvet and comforter starting at the head of the bed and rolling it into one long roll at the foot of the bed. Slide your hand into the opening of the duvet and flip it over one end of the roll so that the right side of the duvet is in view. Do the same on the other side and in the middle. Now simply unroll the duvet and comforter back up to the head of the bed.
