From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut, the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects, but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab, but eventually the cover's decorative possibilities were realized.
These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
Duvets also protect your comforter because many people have great comforters, but they are usually white. And since comforters are pretty expensive, they are something that you want to protect.
As they are available in many sizes you can make your choice depending on the type of duvet that you have. The three main types of duvet covers are the twin, full, queen and the king. When you go to the market or if you are purchasing them online, make sure that you know the size of your bed. This is because you cannot buy a king size duvet cover for a small bed. On a similar note, you cannot buy a small one for a big bed. This will make your bed to look funny and not as elegant as you want it look.
Next you should decide what type of fabric you would prefer. If you are looking for a certain color or color scheme you may decide not to be too picky about the fabric and concentrate on finding a nice color or print to match your decor. However, if you have dogs or cats, you may want to think carefully about the fabric that your cover is made from.
One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts, so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
