Before we look at their importance let us first try to understand what duvets are and where they originated from. A duvet is just like a bag filled with warm fabrics like feathers or wool. Duvets originated from the French and it basically means down. Many people do not know the difference between a duvet and a comforter. There is a very big difference but they both serve the same purpose. A comforter in contrast is sewn all round whereas the duvet has an outer cover which resembles that of a pillow case.
Just because of a few unique characteristics of the duvet covers most people are buying duvets. One of their unique facet is their maintenance. As a user you hardly need to worry about them because they are not hard to maintain at all. Of late numerous people have appreciated this fact andas a result these covers have leapfrogged to the apex on their popularity scale in the United States of America and the whole of Europe to name a few areas.
Duvet Cover. 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.
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.
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.
