These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
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.
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.
Duvets for children: Planning bedding for small children requires a lot of effort. Because children keep growing buying duvets and duvet covers can be an expensive affair as sizes have to be changed and maintenance becomes a problem as they may have to be changed often if they are stained or damaged. Some children have independent tastes and may want duvets in sizes of their choice featuring designs and styles which catch their fancy from time to time. However they can be a good alternative to regular bedding where space is a constraint and where smaller children have to be placed in the master bedroom for easier supervision.
For the person who likes to decorate and make dynamic change these covers are an exciting tool. If you have three or four covers you can change covers and the room’s appearance every few months. If you use decorative pillows you can enhance the bedroom’s appearance even more. Choose your cover and pillow colors so that the pillows can be used with more than one duvet.
Duvet covers like quilts and comforters should be mercerized. Look for this information before buying. This is important since it makes the cloth stronger and prevents little balls of cloth from forming on the surface of the duvet. You can remove the filling or cotton balls but this should not be the case. Mercerized cloths will not usually undergo filling.
