There are so many advantages to having beautiful bed duvet sets on hand that it should be practically a requirement. But, there are plenty of people who do not know exactly what they are or why they should have one. It is time for those people to realize that their key to stress-free, budget-friendly decorating options is as close at hand as the nearest duvet.
There are a number of different duvet options, including duvet sets that have the comforter, the outer covering and perhaps several decorator throw pillows. You can even find bed-in-a-bag sets that include everything right down to the sheets, pillow cases and decorative pillow shams. In most cases, you get one pillow case in a twin set and two with all other bedding sizes. Depending on the manufacturer, there may be options for a twin and king bed, while the full and queen size options are combined into one.
Duvet sets can be made of cotton, satin and other materials and can be stuffed with a variety of different types of filling, including down or down alternative for those who are allergic. What you choose may depend on how much warmth you need as well as the look you are trying to cultivate. The advantage of the duvet here is that you can change what it is filled with by inserting a different thickness of comforter allowing it to be used all year round.
Another advantage of the duvet is in its care. Some types of blankets cannot be washed- which is why they are sometimes not used. A duvet can usually be tossed into the washer and dryer without the worry of shrinkage or other problems- you pull it off, wash it and then slip your comforter back in, no problem at all. Some duvets fold over like an envelope while others close with a zipper, button or snap closure.
A down comforter, as an example, can be quite expensive while duvets can be far more reasonably priced. If you want to change the color of your bedroom, for instance, and give it a new, updated look, you can do so by changing the duvet more quickly and less expensively than you would by buying other items. If you have two or three duvets, you can update the look of the room whenever you want simply by changing the duvet and adding different throw pillows.
Most duvets do fit the blanket size perfectly, but if you have any fear of yours being an off sized item, take measurements before you make your purchase, or for a simpler suggestion, buy the next size up which will not affect the performance or appearance of the bed duvet set at all.
