When it comes to bedroom design, there are many elements that are permanent fixtures that have a significant impact on the way the room is viewed. The furniture, and rugs for example are typically pretty permanent – that is unless you’re looking to achieve a post-modern minimalistic look. However, other aspects of bedroom design will leave the homeowner with a little more flexibility and freedom to really display their personality shine through in the design and style on display.
Duvet covers can really help to brighten up a room, whilst patterns can be employed to give it a little more flair and panache. And the best thing is you can consistently change them, meaning you don’t have to keep your room looking the same throughout the year. You don’t have to spend masses either – £50 for a couple of good quality duvet covers and you’ll get a couple of fantastic new looks.
It’s certainly a cheaper option than remodeling the home from scratch.
What Is A Duvet Cover?
Duvet covers are usually made cotton and can basically be described as two joined sheets, which whilst sewn together feature space for a duvet. This layer protects the duvet from becoming grubby and grime-y, whilst providing fashionable patterns to liven up the bedroom a little.
You can easily remove duvet covers to be washed, and they’re also incredibly easy to dry. The same way you wash your sheets, you remove the duvet covers and wash them instead of constantly washing your entire duvet or bed blanket. Duvet covers come in many shapes, sizes, and thread counts depending on your needs.
The fact that duvet covers are often cheaper than an entirely new duvet makes them a more economical option when it comes to introducing a spot of colour into a bedroom.
How To Change A Duvet Cover
It is relatively easy to change a duvet cover. There are usually buttons that line one or two of the sides of the duvet covers. You will be able to unbutton the buttons and remove the duvet from the inside of the duvet cover.
Having done this, simply wash the duvet cover and put it away in storage. When the time comes to swap the duvet cover out once again, all you have to do is slide your duvet inside, straighten out any lumps, button it out, and you’re good to go. The bedroom has a new look and you’re left with a clean bed to sleep in at the end of a tough day – there’s nothing more inviting.
How Frequently Should Someone Change A Duvet Cover?
Duvet covers do not have a standard rate at which they should be changed.
However, many people practice the routine of changing them once every two months. However, for hygiene purposes it’s worth changing them once every month, if not once every week.
By changing your bed on a more consistent basis you’ll feel much better in your sleeping environment. And this can definitely only be considered to be a good thing.
