Many people know what a duvet cover is, but what is a duvet ("due-vay"), and where does it come from? In the United States, we hear the phrases "duvet covers" and "down comforters" and overall, most people know what those items are. In other countries such as Canada and Europe, "duvet" refers to the actual comforter (down comforter) and the cover is the protection to the duvet much like a pillowcase is to a pillow. Duvet is a French word that translates to "down" (referring to the down in birds); this is where the United States gets the phrase "down comforter". As a result, a "duvet cover" refers to the covering of a duvet/down comforter.
Just like traditional comforters, duvets also come in different sizes-twin, queen, king, and California king. You have to select the right size for your duvet cover based on the size of the duvet. If you have a twin sized bedding, you do not want to choose a queen sized cover. It will be too big. One the other hand, choosing a small cover for a big duvet is also not good because the bedding will not fit into the cover, which means you just wasted your money and time.
Choosing the Duvet-cover according to need. There are many types of duvet-covers in the market for different purposes and for every occasion. The cost varies with the fabric used as well as the designs. For example, in winters, a duvet cover made of silk, flannel or velvet would keep you warm whereas cotton or a lighter material duvet cover would be ideal for summers.
A duvet cover essentially is a pillow case for your comforter. They come in a variety of shapes and colors to fit any comforter that you own. Instead of having your comforter get dirty, your cover will get the brunt of the spill, which is going to be giving you peace of mind. Remember, with the varieties that are available, you will be able to find the perfect duvet cover for any room and for any personality.
Do you see a new duvet cover in your short-term future? If so, it should be a bright spot on your horizon. But it is a bright spot that would fade significantly if you have to return the cover after the purchase. To help avoid this, as you get ready to shop, make and keep in mind three decisions related to the size, comfort level and style of your new duvet cover. With a good set of criteria in hand, you are much more likely to be happy with the duvet cover that you choose.
What are Duvet-covers? A Duvet cover is an important part of a bedding arrangement which protects the duvet from dirt, fading and wear and tear. It is easy to remove and to put on which also saves the cost of buying different duvets every time you want to change the design or the colour of your duvet. There is an array of different types of duvet covers to savour, some duvet covers even come with special double reversible designs which could change the colour or look just by turning the cover inside out.
