Make sure that the duvet cover is not to cheap or flimsy or it will not provide protection for the duvet or comforter inside. If you get a good quality duvet cover, you will be able to wash it many times and will hardly ever have to clean the duvet, which is much more difficult.
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."
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.
You should also check the thread count of the cover. When you see the term 'thread count' or 'TC' in the product's label, this means the number of thread per square inch. Some covers have a 100 TC while others can have more than 1000 TC. If you want a really soft cover for your bedding, something that is very comfortable, you should choose a higher TC. The higher the TC, the softer the cover will be. If you want a good quality cover, a 300 TC is okay.
Duvets are great to use because the fact you can change the color, the fabric, and the color whenever you want. So depending on the season, you can have the color that works for you. Not to mention, it also works if you change the look of your decorative pillows or even your whole room.
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.
