It is true that there are a limited number of bed sizes in the US - twin full queen etc. - and that the corresponding duvet insert or duvet cover sizes will fit their respective beds. However if you are not purchasing the duvet insert and cover as a set size can be an issue. It is not a matter of having either item fit the bed but the insert and cover need to fit each other. It is worth a little time up front to avoid bringing home a duvet cover that looks too big and sloppy because it is too big or one that causes your duvet insert to bunch-up because the cover is too small.
Coordinates - Choosing the best double duvet cover for your needs may also depend on your existing bedroom decor. If you currently have some bedding pieces such as a bed skirt and want to only update the cover on your comforter then finding a solid or print that matches should probably be fairly easy because there are so many to choose from. If you are replacing all of your existing bedding then look for duvet sets. They usually contain a bed skirt or at least two shams (for double and full sizes) that can be purchased at once. Often the set that you choose will have quite a few other coordinating pieces that can be purchased separately. These items include throw pillows throw blankets sheets dust ruffles curtains and other window treatments and even bathroom accessories.
Duvet covers like quilts and comforters should be mercerized. Look for this information before buying. This is important since it makes the cloth stronger and prevents little balls of cloth from forming on the surface of the duvet. You can remove the filling or cotton balls but this should not be the case. Mercerized cloths will not usually undergo filling.
A soft and comfortable duvet can be expensive and hence a duvet cover is necessary for protection like a pillow case to a pillow. It can be slipped over a duvet and closed completely. Duvet covers are easy to wash and clean; the added advantage is that they can alter the decor of a bedroom or guest room easily or afford change of style or color to bedding units depending upon the season.
For the person who likes to decorate and make dynamic change these covers are an exciting tool. If you have three or four covers you can change covers and the room’s appearance every few months. If you use decorative pillows you can enhance the bedroom’s appearance even more. Choose your cover and pillow colors so that the pillows can be used with more than one duvet.
On line or in a store your shopping trip will be much more efficient if you determine the size comfort level and style of your new duvet cover before you start. With these decisions made in advance of the trip you can quickly weed out the duvet covers that do not satisfy one or more of your criteria and concentrate on those that could be the one you are looking for. They also help prevent the need to return the merchandise.
