The Versatility of A Duvet

A duvet cover is used to protect a comforter and allow you to change the look of your bedroom easily. Keeping the comforter from being soiled and preventing the feathers or the filling inside it from bunching up or matting are also key reasons to use duvets. If the comforter is stuffed with feathers instead of down, duvet covers keep people sleeping under the comforter from being poked by quills. Moreover, since the covers can be easily changed and easily washed, they can add variety to the overall decor and color scheme of a bedroom.

Duvet covers can be made of just about any material, from luxurious silks and satins to plain cotton. Since its purpose is to protect the comforter it encloses, the homemaker might want to find a fabric that's easy to wash, can stand a bit of rough handling, and is also affordable. It is important to keep in mind that duvet covers are available in a wide range of prices due to the different materials used. Usually the comforter or duvet filler is the more expensive of the two pieces, with some down comforters costing hundreds of dollars.

Besides protection and being able to change the look of a bed, the other great benefit of a duvet is that the homemaker can throw it in the wash as opposed to having it sent out to a dry cleaners as they would a comforter. The homemaker should check to see if the duvet is colorfast before they put it in the machine with other items. One fast way to do this is to wring out a wet washcloth and rub it over one of the duvet's inside seams. If color appears on the cloth, the duvet isn't colorfast.
