For most people, making their beds can be a bit difficult. They have to put bed sheets, blankets, comforter, and other kinds of bedding. But some people, especially in European countries, use a duvet. This makes it easy for them to change their bedding. If you use a duvet, you can use it by itself, without using other kinds of bedding covers like blankets and sheets.
One important aspect to look at when choosing a duvet is the duvet cover. A duvet cover looks like a giant pillow case that covers your duvet. Duvets are filled with down or soft materials to make them more comfortable. To change the look of your duvet, all you need to do is to replace the duvet cover Bedding 3 Piece – 1000 – TC Luxury Microfiber Down Comforter B077Y13CCS
However, choosing the best duvet cover is not as easy as it seems. If you want some tips, read the paragraphs below about choosing the best cover for your duvet.
Just like traditional comforters, duvets also come in different sizes-twin, queen, king, and California king. You have to select the right size for your duvet cover based on the size of the duvet. If you have a twin sized bedding, you do not want to choose a queen sized cover. It will be too big. One the other hand, choosing a small cover for a big duvet is also not good because the bedding will not fit into the cover, which means you just wasted your money and time.
You should also check the thread count of the cover. When you see the term ‘thread count’ or ‘TC’ in the product’s label, this means the number of thread per square inch. Some covers have a 100 TC while others can have more than 1000 TC. If you want a really soft cover for your bedding, something that is very comfortable, you should choose a higher TC. The higher the TC, the softer the cover will be. If you want a good quality cover, a 300 TC is okay.
Another factor to consider is the cover closures. These covers are fastened using different kinds of closures like zippers, buttons, hook-n-loop strips, ties, and snaps. Make sure that the closures are of high quality. for example, the zippers should me sturdy and buttons should be sewn firmly. This way, when it is time for you to wash the cover, you can easily remove it form the bedding without having any trouble. And when you put it in the washer, you do not have to worry about the zipper getting stuck or the buttons becoming loose because they are not strong enough.
The fabric is another important thing to consider when choosing a duvet cover. Bedding covers are made from different fabrics. The most common is cotton. Cotton is perfect for your bedding because it is very comfortable and soft. Since it is a natural material, it also ‘breathes,’ so to speak. You can also choose silk (which is very luxurious), faux suede, velvet (which is perfect for cold months), and a combination of two fabrics.
