As they are available in many sizes you can make your choice depending on the type of duvet that you have. The three main types of duvet covers are the twin full queen and the king. When you go to the market or if you are purchasing them online make sure that you know the size of your bed. This is because you cannot buy a king size duvet cover for a small bed. On a similar note you cannot buy a small one for a big bed. This will make your bed to look funny and not as elegant as you want it look.
If you are asthmatic or allergy-prone another option you could go for is silk duvet covers. Silk is a natural fibre and soothes the user into a blissful sleep. Though it could cost a little more than the regular cover it gives an incomparable lavish look to your duvet. It is a good investment considering the anti-allergen effect it gives while also serving all seasons by staying warm in the winters and cool in the summers.
Giving an instant lift to your room. A Duvet-cover comes is all sizes colours and designs. Good quality duvets come with a high price and it is not feasible to buy one in every colour. Duvet-covers give that instant lift to your room by just changing the duvet-covers to suit your tastes. You can find duvet covers in attractive and appealing designs which you could use for every occasion. A duvet-cover set usually comprises of a duvet cover and also pillow covers to match the duvet.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers such as three bedspreads quilts or decorative comforters.
A duvet known in many countries as a quilt is a thin yielding blanket with a soft filling inside. Its been there from bygone days serving the purpose of either a bed softener or a blanket in many parts of the world. Often there is confusion over the word duvet because in the United States Duvet is referred to as the quilt cover as opposed to the quilt itself. Duvet-covers are used just like a pillow cover to protect the duvet and keep it clean.
Even with a good duvet cover it would be wise to regularly wash your duvet however it should not be necessary to go to such extreme measures to remove dust mites from the duvet if you have an effective duvet cover. One advantage to the duvet cover is if they are allergen proof you should be able to just change out the duvet cover for washing on a frequent basis and then on a less frequent schedule clean your duvet. Another advantage to this routine is that you will be able to change out the look and feel of your bedroom on a regular basis as well if you have duvet covers with various designs.
