A duvet cover is a very practical piece to add to your bedroom. A down comforter (or duvet) would be extremely difficult to toss in the washer, however a duvet covering is easily removed from the down comforter and put in the wash with the other sheets and pillowcases, which makes washing and keeping the duvet/down comforter clean, quite simple. Covers may come separately, or in a bedroom set. A bedroom set usually comes with matching pillows and shams. You may not like having the extra accessories that come in a set, so a single duvet cover would be what you are looking for.
Though double duvets are common, spotting double covers might be easier said than done. So, make sure that you have the exact measurements of your duvet while scouting for the matching covers. Never buy covers by going by the label sizes as these need not ensure perfect fitting always. If you have a very soft and fluffy duvet, remember to add in a little for the extra height. Very tight covers could spoil the smooth and soft texture of duvets so it is very important to get the right dimensions before purchasing duvet covers.
You can also change the cover based on your bedroom's theme and color. For example, if you just had your bedroom renovated and you changed the theme or main colors, you can easily replace the cover of your comforter to make it more appropriate to your new theme. Duvet covers come in so many styles and designs. You can choose different ones that will work best in your bedroom design. You can easily redecorate your bed without having to replace your comforter which is more expensive.
A duvet is popularly known as quilt. It is soft blanket with filling inside. It is used either as soft bed cover or as blanket to cover all over the world. There has been a slight confusion between duvet and duvet covers in many countries. In the USA, it is always referred as quilt, where as in some places duvet covers are used as any pillow covers. This would help them protect from dust and keep them clean. Duvets are part of the bedding arrangement. They protect the bed from fading as well. Beds often get worn out when we use it regularly. Hence quilts prove to be helpful. There are different types of duvet covers available with different designs and patterns. You also have double side or reversible designs. This will change the look of the bed.
Like many American men I must confess that the first time I heard someone refer to a Duvet or Duvet Cover, I had no idea what they could be referring to. In fact I think it's probably been less than two years ago that I first heard of a Duvet and I'm in my thirties. So, I suspect that I'm not the only person that hadn't heard of a duvet or a duvet cover or would even have an idea of where one might be found. For those of you that don't know, it's related to bedding. Coming from a tradition where we had sheets, blankets, quilts, covers and spreads I really was somewhat surprised when I started reading about the idea of a duvet or duvet cover.
Another important consideration is what do you want your duvet cover made of. There are many fabrics and many different types of duvets. Some are just covers and some come with extra padding. If you are going for some real luxury, then you should really try a silk duvet. These are incredibly soft, but they are also tough to find.
