Modern Duvet Cover: Selection and Care
If you are looking for a stylish accessory for your bed, a modern duvet cover just may provide exactly what you are looking for. Here are a few tips on how to select a duvet cover, as well as, how to care for one.
Duvet covers provide a convenient option to change the look of your bed and protect your comforter at the same time. If you have already invested in a high quality comforter, a duvet cover is the best way to protect your investment. Comforters can be difficult to clean due to their size and also sometimes due to the materials that they contain. It is not recommended that you launder your comforter often. However, with a duvet cover, you can clean it on a regular basis along with your other bedding.

How to Select a Duvet Cover
Selecting a duvet cover requires a few important steps in order to ensure that it will properly fit your bed. Start by measuring your comforter. While most comforters come in standard sizes such as King, Queen or Full, you may require a larger duvet cover if the comforter is made from filling materials that make the comforter larger than the labeled size.
Get out a measuring tape after you have spread out the comforter flat so that you can figure out the actual dimensions of the comforter. Then simply compare these dimensions to those listed on the packaging for your comforter. If the dimensions match, then you can be assured that the duvet cover will fit perfectly. If the dimensions are larger, then you might want to opt for a larger size duvet cover to be safe.
Thread counts are also important when it comes to duvet covers especially if you want to make sure that the fabric is breathable and soft. Higher thread counts mean that the duvet cover will be softer. In addition, the material that the duvet cover is made from will play a large role in the feel. Opt for organic cotton if you are looking for a breathable fabric in your duvet cover.
Washing a duvet cover is a breeze. The majority of duvet covers are made to be machine washable and dryable so that you don’t have to worry about dry cleaning them. If this is what you prefer, make sure that you check for these features before making your purchase.
An Easy Method for Putting on a Duvet Cover
Putting on a duvet cover can be tricky due to the fact that you are trying to manipulate two large objects at once. The simplest way is to start by putting the duvet cover down flat on the bet. Start with the top two corners and locate openings for the comforter. Once you have done this, insert your comforter and then simply hold it up in the air and shake the comforter into place inside the duvet cover until it is completely filled out. If your duvet cover contains ties to hold the comforter in place, start by turning the duvet cover inside instead and securing your comforter by tying it in place at each of the corners of the duvet cover.
