When people hear “Home Depot,” they usually think of a few things; for some people, it’s an exciting place full of the tools to make anything, and for others, it’s that stop you make on the weekends so you/your spouse can buy 15 bags of mulch because “this spring we’re really going to get the backyard looking nice.” You probably don’t give Home Depot much thought when you climb into bed at night; late I have been because I’ve been testing the Home Depot Tatefield Stone Gray comforter!
A little bit of (mildly embarrassing) background: my prior comforter was a hand-me-down that I ended up with when I was in the middle of a divorce a few years ago. So it wasn’t something I’d picked out and said, “Yes, this is my style“; it was more “yes, I should use a blanket; that’s a great idea, thank you.”
I really did intend to replace it, but life got in the way, and I have a tendency to tune out things that are functional but don’t have much bearing on my day-to-day. For instance, there was the time when I commented that I couldn’t find a top sheet, only to have someone point out that I had been using the missing top sheet as a curtain for the last 6 months.
The point is that household items rarely rise to the level of “exciting” for me.
Therefore, when I say I LOVE the Tatefield Stone Gray Comforter, that’s high praise. It’s warm and comfy, and it looks great on my bed. Every time I walk into my room, I get ridiculously excited and giddy about it. People often ask whether I’m reviewing anything interesting, and their faces every time I excitedly say, “Yeah, a Home Depot comforter” is … something.
But all jokes about the fact that it came from a hardware store aside, it’s legitimately a great set.
First of all, the Tatefield Stone Gray Comforter is machine washable, which is a non-negotiable in my house since my 9-year-old sometimes still sleeps in my bed, especially if he doesn’t feel well. The label suggested it be machine washed in cold and tumble dried on low, so that’s the first thing I did. It came out nice and clean, and my washer and dryer had no issues handling the comforter.
The design uses bar tacking to keep the polyester from bunching or drifting while being washed, and while I’ve only washed it once, I can easily see how this design keeps it looking fresh and fluffy.
The outer microfiber cover is also quite soft and comfortable. I also really liked how the material keeps you warm yet feels breathable. My bedroom has a tendency to hoard all the heat in the house, so I appreciate that it keeps me warm without trapping excess heat or leaving me a sweaty mess by morning.
I was sent a queen/full-size set, and the blanket fits my queen-size bed quite well. The measurements are 90×90 inches, which seems to provide an excellent fit. It doesn’t create excess hang anywhere, but it does fit nicely and seems to stay in place even when there’s a lot of tossing and turning.
I also really love the design itself. Admittedly, this is a personal choice, but I love all things plaid. 90% of my fall-to-spring wardrobe is flannels in various plaids, so the gray buffalo check really nails my aesthetic. The day the comforter arrived, I sent photos to my girlfriend and my parents, and everyone responded with, “Wow, that’s exactly your style.”
It does make my bedroom skew more masculine looking, which is what I’m going for, but you could probably soften the style with bright pillows as a contrast to the neutral grays and whites. The pillow shams that came with the set fit my various pillows nicely, though I’ll be first to admit I’m not the best about utilizing them regularly. It’s very handy to have them for those “oh shoot, my parents are coming, I should make it look like I learned something about housekeeping from my mother” moments!
