Style- If your purpose is to just get out and spend the whole day shopping go ahead and enjoy yourself. However if your time is limited and you have decided on the size and material for your new duvet cover determine some style guidelines before you head for the Internet or brick and mortar store. Actually spend time in your bedroom and take in all that is currently there. Then generate your guidelines and if you can picture some of the possibilities that the guidelines will produce. Style is a personal preference so you cannot make a mistake but as you express your personal sense of style you can take the results from good to better to best. The following suggestions may help in determining your guidelines.
The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse in which case it’s easier to replace the old with a new one much like a mattress.
If you have sensitive skins choose the duvet with a finer finish. The thread count is especially important. It can make the difference between comfort and discomfort. A thread count of 300 is the comfortable enough but beyond that little else matters. It’s similar to applying lotion on your skin. One application is enough. If you add a second or third application you’re wasting the lotion.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers such as three bedspreads quilts or decorative comforters.
This development has resulted in the duvet cover of today being as much if not more of a fashion statement than just a protective covering. The overall duvet insert and cover have many advantages over alternate forms of bed covers. Some of the advantages that have boosted the popularity of duvet covers include.
Cotton/Polyester Blend - Polyester is a man-made fiber that can be blended with cotton to make one of many Poly cotton blends. The resultant fabric is not only less expensive than the equivalent grade of cotton but it improves washability at high temperatures.
