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."
The value of the comforter, along with the fact that it is difficult to clean, lead to the "invention" of the duvet cover. Similar to the concept of a pillowcase, the duvet cover protected the down or silk comforter from body oils and all the other elements that might soil it.
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.
Some of these duvet covers are not designed for traditional washing. Most of them may need to be dry washed to remove dirt without damaging the cloth. However cotton and blended materials are washable at home and all you need to do is to follow the washing instructions carefully.
The fun part of buying a duvet cover is choosing the color or print. If you have a lot of patterns in your bedroom already, you may decide to get a solid color duvet cover. There are thousands of styles available online, so that is a good place to begin your search. You may want to get a couple different duvet covers so that you can change the look of your bedroom every once in a while.
Just like traditional comforters, duvets also come in different sizes-twin, queen, king, and California king. You have to select the right size for your duvet cover based on the size of the duvet. If you have a twin sized bedding, you do not want to choose a queen sized cover. It will be too big. One the other hand, choosing a small cover for a big duvet is also not good because the bedding will not fit into the cover, which means you just wasted your money and time.
