Natalie Lemoine Duvet Covers April 08, 2018 21:34:25
Duvet covers have been around for a long time but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
Duvets became popular around the world in the 20th century as a convenient form of bed covering. In some parts of the world they are also known as quilts and are used as extra bedding or mattresses in households in addition to regular mattresses for kids and extra guests.
Color - The color of the cover should not be lighter than the blanket underneath because often the darker blanket will show through. To avoid this choose a high quality thick material duvet cover that will not show what’s underneath or purchase a white down comforter or synthetic filled comforter to place inside. Also as clean and crisp as it may appear refrain from using a white duvet in a child’s room as the opportunity for staining is quite significant.
Fabri- Cotton is widely used in the making of double duvet covers. It’s durable washable and most of all comfortable! Of course there are many other materials that are utilized such as silk flannel micro fiber and sateen to name a few. While fabric is a matter of personal taste as well as budget and bedding needs keep in mind that the higher the thread count the better the overall durability quality and longevity you’ll receive from your purchase.
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.
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.
