So, the word duvet comes to us from French. The word originally means down and so it refers to a down filled cover for a bed. This type of bed covering originated in continental Europe and observers from other places found it quite an unusual practice. One writer even commented that they sleep upon one mattress filled with down and cover themselves with a second down mattress. This was essentially the duvet and it was used in place of separate sheets and quilts or blankets. So you may see that the duvet has some advantages, if nothing else it makes the task of making a bed extremely easy and straightforward. There is only one covering to be placed over the bed.
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.
The duvet itself cannot be washed because the filling would be ruined, most especially in the case of real down filling. This is why duvet covers are so useful. They serve as a giant pillow case over the duvet. Buttons, zippers or ties at the top of the duvet keep the cover secured until you need to remove it. The covers can be laundered with the sheets and pillow cases in a washer at home, for your convenience.
A duvet, known in many countries as a quilt, is a thin yielding blanket with a soft filling inside. It's been there from bygone days serving the purpose of either a bed softener or a blanket in many parts of the world. Often there is confusion over the word 'duvet' because in the United States Duvet is referred to as the quilt cover as opposed to the quilt itself. Duvet-covers are used just like a pillow cover, to protect the duvet and keep it clean.
The bets part about duvet covers is the fact that you can change the fashion of your bed and room very quickly. Comforters are usually very expensive and hard to store so owning many of them is out of the question. Duvets however are easy to store and much more affordable. So you can style with different types of fabric, different patterns, and even with different enclosures. You can go for a traditional button up enclosure or choose the very practical zipper.
