One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts, so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check. Dust-mites are microscopic arachnids which thrive on dust especially in the down fillings of pillows and quilts. They comprise of almost 80% of the dust around the house!
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.
Duvet Cover. A soft and comfortable duvet can be expensive and hence a duvet cover is necessary for protection, like a pillow case to a pillow. It can be slipped over a duvet and closed completely. Duvet covers are easy to wash and clean; the added advantage is that they can alter the decor of a bedroom or guest room easily or afford change of style or color to bedding units depending upon the season.
A duvet cover essentially is a pillow case for your comforter. They come in a variety of shapes and colors to fit any comforter that you own. Instead of having your comforter get dirty, your cover will get the brunt of the spill, which is going to be giving you peace of mind. Remember, with the varieties that are available, you will be able to find the perfect duvet cover for any room and for any personality.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make, which gave them value. Also, both types are excellent insulators, but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
