A duvet is a soft bedding bag filled with bird feathers or down soft cotton silk wool or a synthetic substance like polyester or foam that is protected with an outer covering. Since it is a complete bedding unit by itself it can do away the need for having a mattress or bed bed sheets or blankets. Duvets originated in northern rural Europe where winters required thermal insulation; duvets fulfilled that need especially for small children.
When you first put that duvet cover on the first thing you are going to notice it the inherent comfort that it will bring to your bedroom. These duvet covers are essentially available in any fabric that you can think of but we get to that in a few minutes. The pure comfort of the material is where people fall in love with these covers. The best part is you can change up the cover with very little effort to either give you that silky sateen feeling or the light airy cotton it really is up to your feelings on the day. Plus this change can make your room pop or add a little substance to the room decor. Plus who does not love the options to change up your entire bed in a flash to what you are feeling that day. The amount of comfort that is available is simply worth going out and getting that duvet cover that you are now really wanting to go out and get!
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.
When you are looking at that comforter and seeing that terrible stain in the middle of it we both know you are going is it that noticeable? Well worry no more if you have a duvet cover on the comforter you will no longer have to clean that comforter only the cover. For washing these are the best things in the world. Throw into the washer on either warm or cold use a nice mild detergent and let it do its thing. When it is done the duvet cover can right in the dryer on low heat of course and you are done. It is that simple you cannot say that much for your comforter and you will be ecstatic at the results. No more time wasted when you take a full day to wash and dry your comforter instead you are good to go in a couple of hours.
It comes in a variety of materials and we are going to look at some of the better options for your home. Cotton or cotton blends will be a durable way to keep your comforter safe. It is going to be a cool breathable material that will suit any room or person plus is great for those warm summer nights. Polyester is going to a bit of a cheaper material to go with if prices are going to be an issue. It has the added bonus of being anti-allergy material but it does not breath too well. For those cold winter nights flannel is the way to go with your duvet cover. This material will keep you toasty warm but for those summer nights you will need to switch it up as you will be dying of heat exhaustion.
