Duvet Covers are simply designed to be decorative or protective coverings for the duvet. They come in many sizes as the duvets do. Some duvet covers come with the idea of preventing dust mites or other allergens from entering into the down filling. They also may come in silk and other materials to match different peoples tastes or fabric preferences. They even come in different colors and designs to help people match the decor of their bedrooms or even to change out their decor with a fresh duvet cover without having to change out the duvet.
Washing a comforter or duvet can be a difficult task because it is huge, heavy, and cumbersome, especially a king size duvet. Some also require special washing instructions. If you fail to follow these care instructions, your pricey duvet will get damaged and will go to waste. Moreover, you might need to go to the Laundromat because these big comforters may not fit in your regular washer at home. You have to sue a powerful, heavy duty washer which can only be found in Laundromats.
One important aspect to look at when choosing a duvet is the duvet cover. A duvet cover looks like a giant pillow case that covers your duvet. Duvets are filled with down or soft materials to make them more comfortable. To change the look of your duvet, all you need to do is to replace the duvet cover.
The fabric is another important thing to consider when choosing a duvet cover. Bedding covers are made from different fabrics. The most common is cotton. Cotton is perfect for your bedding because it is very comfortable and soft. Since it is a natural material, it also 'breathes,' so to speak. You can also choose silk (which is very luxurious), faux suede, velvet (which is perfect for cold months), and a combination of two fabrics.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check. Dust-mites are microscopic arachnids which thrive on dust especially in the down fillings of pillows and quilts. They comprise of almost 80% of the dust around the house!
When you have children, you will notice that they have a tendency of dirtying their linens most of the time at a very fast rate. The best way to avoid this is by purchasing duvet covers. This will enable to avoid any expenses of taking the duvet to the laundry or having the trouble of washing such a big and heavy comforter all the time. The duvet covers however are not that complex if you want to remove them for washing or if you want to change them. Most of them have got buttons or even better zippers round the duvet.
