The topic of duvets versus comforters has plagued bedding buyers for years. And while we at Pure Parima certainly have our own feelings on the subject, that’s not the topic of today’s blog. Instead, we want to discuss an important question: What exactly are duvet covers and are they really worth it?
A covering for your duvet or comforter, a duvet cover is a type of bedding that resembles a soft fabric bag. Just as pillowcases are used to keep your pillows safe from dust and sweat, duvet covers provide a protective coating for your duvet. Additionally, this bedding item offers a stylistic advantage, in that families can purchase duvet covers in a wide array of colors and materials based on their changing tastes.

How Duvet Covers Work
A duvet cover can only work as it’s meant to when used correctly. For best results, make sure the duvet fits snugly inside the chosen cover. Depending on the duvet cover you choose, it might have ties inside to hold the duvet in place so it can’t roll down or scrunch up while you sleep. Some duvet covers have zipper closures while others feature buttons or ties. Simply slip your duvet cover off when it needs washing and launder it along with your sheets and pillowcases.
Benefits of a Duvet Cover
Using a duvet cover comes with numerous advantages over placing a duvet or comforter on the bed bare. Read on for some of the benefits of adding a duvet cover to your bedding collection.
Your Comforter Lasts Longer
The top reason to purchase a cover for your duvet is to protect it for the long haul. While a flat sheet offers some barrier between your body and blanket, it’s easy for this sheet to slip down during the night. In particular, those who tend to roll around a lot while they slumber will likely wind up sweating on their comforter. An unprotected duvet will require more washing. The end result is that the shell becomes weaker and the filling lumpy and less comfortable.
Covers Are Easily Cleaned
It’s no secret that cleaning duvets and comforters is a troubling proposition. After all, these thick bedding items rarely fit comfortably in a washer or dryer. Moreover, some comforters are made from materials that aren’t meant to be washed. If you want to keep your bedding clean, a washable duvet cover is the most logical choice. You can toss your duvet cover in the washer with your sheets and then dry it on low in no time. The end result is sweet-smelling bedding that lasts for years.
You Can Revamp Your Decor on a Dime
It’s natural to grow tired of your current bedroom decor. After all, you look at your sheets and blankets every night. When you use covers on your duvets, you give yourself a more affordable way of switching up your decor when the mood strikes. Try a different style, color, or even a playful print. You can also switch among cotton weaves. Depending on your preferences, you may opt for a crisp percale or a silky-soft sateen.
