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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
