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.
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.
Just because of a few unique characteristics of the duvet covers, most people are buying duvets. One of their unique facet is their maintenance.

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.
Many people fail to understand the differences between duvets, quilts and comforters. Quilts are usually thinner and are known for their intricate stitching patterns. Quilts are a double layer of blanket stuffed with one kind of filling or another to make it thick and soft. Duvets are giant bed-sized bags filled with features, or down, from birds. The word "duvet" is a French word which means "down."
