Duvet covers are exactly that, covers that have an opening in which a blanket or quilt is inserted. The duvet cover is available in every bed size such as California King, King, Queen, Full or Double and both Twin and X-Large Twin. Along with size options come many design and style alternatives as well.
The double duvet cover is usually used in guest, teen, or children's rooms because frequently, only the master bedrooms have queen or king sized beds.
When selecting to cover a down comforter or other style blanket for a kid or teen's room, make sure to consider the following tips:
The color of the cover should not be lighter than the blanket underneath because often the darker blanket will show through. To avoid this, choose a top quality, thick material duvet cover that will not show what is underneath or, purchase a white down comforter or synthetic filled comforter to place inside. Also, as clean and crisp as it may appear, refrain from using a white duvet in a child's room as the opportunity for staining is quite significant.
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 quilt and (following manufacturer's instructions) is usually easily machine washed right at home. When the bedding is being used in a children'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.
Cotton is widely used in the making of double duvet covers. It is durable, washable and most of all, comfortable! Of course there are many other materials that are utilized such as silk, flannel, micro fiber and sateen to name a few. While fabric is a matter of personal taste as well as budget and bedding requirements, remember that the higher the thread count, the better the overall durability, quality and longevity you'll receive from your purchase.
Choosing the top double duvet cover for your needs may also rely 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 changing all of your existing bedding, then look for duvet sets. They typically 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.
From ultramodern tastes to the most traditional, there's the great duvet for you. For those on a tight budget, look online for special deals and off season clearances or check your local discount department and home accessory stores.
When it is time to update and refresh your bedroom decor, a budget friendly, versatile and contemporary trend is to cover your existing down comforter or blanket with a new king, queen, twin or double bed cover. Add wonderful accessories and matching bedding coordinates to complete your new look.
