How to Select the Perfect Duvet Cover

Making beds can be a difficult task for some people as they have to put bed sheets, comforter, blankets and other kinds of bedding. But thanks to duvets; as they have made lives much easier. These duvets are specially used in the European countries that eases out the entire process of bedding change. When you use a duvet, you don’t need to use other kinds of bedding covers such as blankets and sheets.

One of the most important aspect that you need to consider while choosing a cheap duvet in UK is the duvet covers. Duvet cover — it looks like a giant pillow case that covers your duvet. These duvets are filled with down or soft materials that makes them more comfortable. If you really want to change the look of your duvet, just replace the duvet cover and that’s all!

On the other hand, when it comes to choosing the best duvet cover, it’s a difficult task though. Here, in this article, we’ll discuss some of the tips about how to choose the best cover for your duvet.


Similar to the traditional comforters, duvets also come in different sizes including king, queen and California king. Always choose the accurate size for your duvet cover by keeping in mind the right size of the duvet. If you have a twin-sized bedding, you don’t need to choose a queen sized cover. It will be too big. However, choosing a small cover for a big duvet is also not good because the bedding will not fit into the cover that means you are just wasting your time and money.

Another important thing is to check the thread count of the cover. When you see the term ‘TC’ or ‘thread count’ in the product’s label, this means the number of threads per square inch. Some covers come with 100 TCs while others can have more than 1000 TCs. If you want a really soft cover for your bedding, something that is very comfortable, just go for higher thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer the duvet cover will be. If you want a good quality cover, a 300 thread count is fine.

One more aspect that you can’t overlook is the cover closures. These duvet covers are fastened using different kinds of closures such as buttons, zippers, hook-n-loop strips, snaps and ties. Try to make sure that the closures are of high quality. For instance, the zippers must be sturdy and buttons should be sewn firmly. In this way, you can easily remove it from the bedding and wash it easily. And if you put it in the washer, you don’t need to worry about the buttons becoming loose and the zipper getting stuck

Lastly, you need to check the quality of the fabric when choosing a duvet cover. Although, bedding covers are made from different fabrics and the most common is cotton. Cotton is ideal for your bedding because it is very soft and comfortable. Since it is a natural material, it also ‘breathes,’ so to speak. You can also select luxurious silk, faux suede, velvet (perfect for cold months), and many more only from Homesware.
