Although most of us choose duvet covers based on how they look, they are actually meant to serve a bigger purpose. By enveloping the duvet, they are meant to provide protection and to safeguard against daily wear and tear. This ensures the longevity of the comforter or duvet and promotes a hygienic sleep environment as well.

Ask any duvet owner what she likes best about her comforter cover and she will likely point to the way it looks. To be sure, style and design are primary considerations when choosing a cover. In fact, one of the best things about opting for a duvet is that you can rotate multiple covers and change the look of your bedroom with ease.

Protecting Your Comforter

However, the primary purpose of a duvet cover is to provide protection. If you think for a moment about all that you put your bedding through--from endless nights of tossing and turning to periodic movie nights out on the couch--it is easy to appreciate the need for a bit of basic protection. A good cover will ensure that your duvet stays clean and that it doesn't lose filling prematurely.

Moreover, because a cover can be removed and cleaned with ease, it is infinitely more sanitary than most traditional quilts and comforters. Those options are cleaned much less frequently because they are cumbersome and difficult to manage in the wash. When removed from the bed, a duvet cover is no bigger than a few sheets, and thus is easy to launder.
