Duvet Covers + Cases

 

A duvet is an awesome bedroom option. You can make the bed in a flash, launder it quickly, and change the cover along with your mood. When chosen wisely, the right duvet cover can be your best friend. Here are some helpful hints to get you into the duvet of your dreams.

 

What is a Duvet?

 

A duvet is different from blankets or a regular comforter, and it's important to know you'll need to purchase two separate items. A duvet is a sheet cover that fits over your chosen fill (a bedspread without a cover). You'll need both of these (the cover and fill inserts) and it's a great way to customize your bedding set. A standard duvet bedding package comes with two pillowcase covers. You'll need sheets, but only a fitted sheet for a duvet.

 

The Basics

 

Know the size of your bed before you see what covers are for sale to eliminate the guesswork and prevent purchasing the wrong size. Are the mattresses a twin, full, full/queen, queen or king bed? Also, try and resist the urge to purchase a size slightly bigger or smaller because you love it. Duvet covers need to be a good fit, or they'll end up looking sloppy, taking the focus off your gorgeous duvet. When you know the exact size, you'll be able to purchase with confidence.

 

Fabrics

 

See what's for sale and don't limit yourself to one duvet choice. It's smart to have not only various colors and styles for room decoration but different fabric choices to coincide with the weather. Try an organic linen during the summer, and a warm flannel for cold nights.

 

Decoration

 

If you're looking for something to liven up a dull room, a duvet cover is a fast solution. Bedding in a room can build inspiration, and you can indeed create a unique, one of a kind bedroom with the right cover and the proper accessories. Have fun and get creative by mixing and matching different fabrics and throws. Try contrasting sheets and a busy bedskirt with a conservative duvet cover. Have a good time with throw pillows to tie in any other room decor.
