Although duvets are each commonly used in European countries. in the United States there still seems to become some confusion as to the difference between a comforter and a duvet and a duvet comforter cover. Many retailers. when promoting a duvet. will indicate that a duvet is to be used to cover a comforter. In essence this is not true. A duvet cover is used to cover a duvet. but some people will use a comforter in place of the duvet. hence the phrase duvet comforter cover.
Duvets are mostly filled with down. cotton. feathers or alternative fills that include synthetic fabrics. silk or wool. While duck down and goose down duvets are seen as rather luxurious. synthetic duvets have been catching up and nowadays can give duck down or goose down a run for their money. Also. if you or your children are prone to allergies. you should opt for duvets that are filled with hypodown or other such anti allergic filling.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months. with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So. for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use. you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet. along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers. such as three bedspreads. quilts or decorative comforters.
If you are asthmatic or allergy-prone another option you could go for is silk duvet covers. Silk is a natural fibre and soothes the user into a blissful sleep. Though it could cost a little more than the regular cover. it gives an incomparable lavish look to your duvet. It is a good investment considering the anti-allergen effect it gives while also serving all seasons by staying warm in the winters and cool in the summers.
