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.
The more expensive types of duvet inserts down and silk comforters are excellent insulators making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available though not equal to down and silk comforters still provide very good bed cover qualities.
Also with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
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.
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.
Materials are key: Do you want duvet covers made of cotton or silk? You have to decide on your own. The kinds of cloths are a users’ personal choice. Or do you want one made of wool instead? It’s your call really. If you need warmer cloth then you may opt for wool.
