A duvet is a soft bedding bag filled with bird feathers or down soft cotton silk wool or a synthetic substance like polyester or foam that is protected with an outer covering. Since it is a complete bedding unit by itself it can do away the need for having a mattress or bed bed sheets or blankets. Duvets originated in northern rural Europe where winters required thermal insulation; duvets fulfilled that need especially for small children.
Cleaning - Speaking of staining the great thing about your double duvet cover is the ease in which it can be cleaned. No more lugging that heavy comforter to the laundry mat for an industrial sized machine the duvet simply is removed from the comforter and (following manufacturer’s instructions) is usually easily machine washed right at home. When the bedding is being used in a child’s room try to stay away from beading fringing or other difficult to wash details because the odds are the label will read dry clean only which just might have you making expensive and time consuming weekly trips to your local dry cleaner.
Duvet cover size - Comforters come in different sizes. The size of the cover you buy has to match the size of your duvet; otherwise the cover will just be completely useless. Take the necessary measurements of your duvet and then find a cover that matches these measurements. Note that this does not mean that you have to buy a cover with the same measurements because it will not fit. Buy one that is slightly bigger perhaps a few inches bigger so that the cover will fit the comforter.
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.
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.
One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
