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.
Duvet covers are typically of similar style to the bed headboard and other major bedroom furniture. The duvet cover should complement the style and color of the walls art floor coverings and window treatments. In addition to your duvet cover consider purchasing accent pillows to carry your color themes through the room.
Comfort is important to falling asleep quickly and having a restful night’s sleep. Although cotton is America’s first choice in bedding there are several other choices that provide good to excellent comfort at good to "excellent" prices. Some of the cotton and cotton alternatives that are currently available on the duvet cover market include:
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.
A soft and comfortable duvet can be expensive and hence a duvet cover is necessary for protection like a pillow case to a pillow. It can be slipped over a duvet and closed completely. Duvet covers are easy to wash and clean; the added advantage is that they can alter the decor of a bedroom or guest room easily or afford change of style or color to bedding units depending upon the season.
Once you have the duvet insert measurements the measurements of your duvet cover can range from being the same size as the insert to being about two inches larger in both directions. For instance if your queen size insert measures 85" wide by 90" long your duvet cover should be from 85 to 87" wide by 90 to 92" long. Since both insert and cover are made of cloth and flexible these limits can be pushed a little but be sure the item being purchased can be returned before going too far outside of the determined range.
