Cadencia Lefebvre Duvet Covers April 01, 2018 20:10:36
Duvets became popular around the world in the 20th century as a convenient form of bed covering. In some parts of the world they are also known as quilts and are used as extra bedding or mattresses in households in addition to regular mattresses for kids and extra guests.
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.
Cotton/Polyester Blend - Polyester is a man-made fiber that can be blended with cotton to make one of many Poly cotton blends. The resultant fabric is not only less expensive than the equivalent grade of cotton but it improves washability at high temperatures.
Cleaning - Speaking of staining the great thing about your double duvet cover is the ease in which it can be cleaned. No more lugging that heavy comforter to the laundry mat for an industrial sized machine the duvet simply is removed from the comforter and (following manufacturer’s instructions) is usually easily machine washed right at home. When the bedding is being used in a child’s room try to stay away from beading fringing or other difficult to wash details because the odds are the label will read dry clean only which just might have you making expensive and time consuming weekly trips to your local dry cleaner.
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.
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.
