Duvet covers not only make your bed room look elegant but they also give the warmth that you need during your sleep. They usually make your room to have that new look that you have always dreamed of.
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.
Although duvet inserts and covers have been around for a long time their popularity in the US has lagged behind their popularity in other countries until relatively recently. Their popularity in America is now growing as people realize their many advantages over other types of bedding. If you have not yet experienced these advantages for yourself you are encouraged to try one soon.
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 rooms appearance every few months. If you use decorative pillows you can enhance the bedrooms appearance even more. Choose your cover and pillow colors so that the pillows can be used with more than one duvet.
Duvet Covers have become a popular choice for bedding around the world. Originally it was a type of bedding found in continental Europe or Scandinavia. The Duvet draws its name from the French word for down and that is the material that the quilt that a duvet covers is used with contains. The duvet (or quilt) can contain feathers silk wool cotton polyester batting or other artificial fibers. This duvet is then used with a duvet cover to keep it clean or to coordinate it with the decor of a room. The duvet may be confused with a quilt but the distinction is typically that a quilt is used on top of other bedding a duvet is used as the sole bedcovering.
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.
