Duvet Covers & Cases
Duvet covers are a great alternative to standard bedspreads, they're versatile, lightweight, and come in all sizes. If you're looking to spruce up a room or dorm, here are some creative ways you can and should use a duvet cover to get the ball rolling.
First of all, know your bed size before you guess what duvet to buy. It might sound trivial, but it's a common mistake to fall in love with a duvet cover, only to learn that it's too big or too small for your mattress. Is your mattress a twin, full, full/queen or a queen size? You want to find the exact fit for any bedspread, but it's extra important with a duvet cover. You'll not only purchase the duvet cover, but the fill that goes inside it, and you want to be correct. Buying a full-size duvet cover with a twin insert will look sloppy, taking the focus off your excellent new duvet cover.
What bedding does your room's decor need? If your goal is to bring a dull room to life, have a ball with various pieces. Look at your favorite accessory and build upon that. If you love a pink polka dot and stripe pillow, double those colors and run with it. Throw a faux fur blanket on top of your duvet, replace standard shams with a brushstroke or jacquard design or replace your pillow sham with a plush, Egyptian cotton blend.
In addition to the duvet cover bedding, you can also use blankets, accent pillows and throws with fun designs to balance out a solid duvet piece. And you can have fun with the bedskirt. It's a beautiful trim for your duvet, and you can make it busy because it's just an accent piece. Try a floral print or something with pleats to balance out a dull looking duvet cover.
If you're toning down a busy bedroom, focus on a basic bedspread with textured detail, like an embroidered duvet or a striped duvet to soften the coral curtains.
Since your duvet cover is a large sheet with extra fill, you'll want something soft to the touch. Choose a high quality, high thread count, like cotton percale sheets. A 300-thread or 400-thread-count organic duvet is heaven, and a sweet treat at the end of a long school day.
