Top 7 Reasons You Should Be Using Duvet Covers

A beautiful bed is key to a stunning bedroom. It’s the centerpiece, and the first thing that draws the eye. You can have stunning furniture but a messy or unattractive bed and none of the rest matters.

And when it comes to creating a gorgeous bed, you typically have two choices: a duvet cover or a comforter. Both options offer comfort, design, and practicality.

However, only one option should be your first and only pick when it comes to your bedroom. Duvet covers win, hands down.

What Is a Duvet Cover? 

A Duvet Cover works like a giant pillowcase for your comforter. Made out of a variety of fabrics, it’s a simple slipcover that generally has a button or zipper enclosure to hold the comforter in place and protect it from becoming soiled.

It’s the best choice for your bedroom if you’re looking for style, versatility, affordability, and more. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve outlined the top seven reasons you need a duvet cover today.


Duvet covers come in a variety of styles and designs. They can be made from almost any type of fabric and come in a range of looks. You can find duvet covers that offer a pintuck textured look or a clean-lined hotel look. The options are endless.

Comforters can be expensive.

Not only are you paying for the design, but you’re also paying for the batting and fill. Duvet covers, on the other hand, are generally lower priced because all you’re paying for is the fabric.

This means that you can easily and affordably redecorate your bedroom on a whim, or choose a new duvet cover for every season. It’s the perfect option for someone who wants to stay stylish while on a budget.


A comforter can only be one thing, a comforter.

But since duvet covers are just light pieces of fabric, you have more options. You can easily remove the heavy down comforter in the hotter summer months and simply use the light and cool duvet cover until it gets cold again.

And for even more versatility, at VCNY we carry quite a few reversible duvet covers, so you get two looks for the price of one. Just take a look at our Home Clairebella Tropical Reversible Duvet Cover Set—you get teal and pink all in one sham.

Easy to Clean

Have you ever tried washing your comforter?

First of all, it’s almost impossible to fit the entire thing in your washing machine. Then, drying is an absolute nightmare. With a duvet cover, you can put your cleaning worries to rest.

All of our duvet covers are machine washable and are as easy to clean as your sheets. Simply remove the comforter and throw the duvet cover in the wash, and violá!

A fresh room in no time at all.


Comforters can get dirty.

No matter how careful you are, you have to live in your bedroom, and that means body oil, dirt, food, drink, make-up, and more all collect on your comforter until the once beautiful design is hidden behind a bunch of muck. Duvet covers protect this expensive investment. 

With a duvet cover, you can purchase an expensive down comforter and not worry about stains and tears. In fact, you can keep your comforter looking, smelling, and feeling brand new for the small cost of our Home Scottsdale Pinch Pleat Reversible Duvet Cover Set.

Not a bad deal!

Maximum Comfort

Let’s be honest; many comforters aren’t that’s comfortable. Most of the time it’s because stores are so worried about a great design that they skimp on the filling. With a duvet cover, you don’t have to worry about that. 

You can find the most comfortable down comforter possible no matter what it looks like. Then, just hide it inside a duvet cover that fits your style and design. This means you can go for the ultra-plush, fluffy option without sacrificing the beauty of your bedroom.

Storage Space

How much storage space do you have for bedding?

If you like multiple looks for your bedroom every year, trying to store three or four comforters can take up a lot of space. That’s a lot of fluff to put inside even the roomiest linen closet.

On the other hand, when you buy duvet covers, you only need one comforter that stays on your bed year-round. This way your storage space can be used to hold a rotation of duvet covers, each of which takes up barely more space than a sheet. That means you can stock up on style no matter how little storage room you have.
