Duvet covers are very popular these days and they are great for styling a bed. Essentially, a duvet cover is just a really big slip cover for your comforter. This allows you to change the style of your bed very easily, however they do serve and practical function as well.
In many places in Europe it's even common for two, single size duvets to be placed on a queen or larger size bed. The advantage to this can be that for couples they can have individualized thicknesses of the duvet and it also solves the perennial problem of one person stealing the covers. Did I say different thicknesses? Yes, duvets and duvet covers can have different tog ratings to refer to different heat retention capabilities. Higher tog ratings translate into a warmer cover. These days the filling of a duvet doesn't have to be down, but can be most any other fiber that is used for quilting material from man made to natural materials the variety is really up to the preference of the buyer. Some will want to avoid down for allergy reasons for instance.
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 main benefit of duvet covers is that it protects your comforter or duvet form dirt or stain. The main reason why you buy a duvet cover is because you do not want to wash your comforter all the time. It is easier to wash the cover than the duvet or comforter itself because it is lighter. It is also cheaper than the comforter. You will not feel as bad if something went wrong with the cover. Even though duvet covers can also be expensive, at least they are not as expensive as the comforter. You can easily replace the cover with a fresh new one to have a comfortable sleep.
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.
Like comforters and quilts, duvets are bought according to the size of the bed they will be used on. Some duvets are reversible, giving you designing options each time you wash and freshen up your sheets. You can change the look of a whole room simply by turning your duvet cover inside-out! 100 percent cotton duvet covers are known to be the softest when compared to rayon or microfiber, plus being completely natural makes it hypoallergenic.
