Cotton - In general cotton is a good fabric choice for bedding because its flexibility softness and breatheability all add to its comfort level. The quality of the cotton and the manner in which it is weaved effect its softness and feel. Quality is mainly based on the length of the cotton fibers (staples) attached to the cotton seeds. The weave produces different thread arrangements and it also establishes the thread count which is the total number of threads when counted along the top and one side of a square inch of material. The thread count of good quality sheets starts around 180 while even better quality sheets continue up the range to thread counts of 400 or 500. Thread counts above the 400 to 500 range are available but many people question their increased value.
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.
The warmth that these feathers bring to your body is the ultimate experience without using thermal devices which is an additional expense on your part. You can still buy duvet with feathers instead of other contents.
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.
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.
