If you’ve already invested in a great comforter, don’t skimp on a quality duvet cover. Create the most inviting bed possible by considering these three factors before buying one.

Available in 42 different colors.

A new duvet cover is a fun, relatively inexpensive way to quickly refresh your entire bedroom’s look. If you’re going to spend a third of your life in bed, sleep in something that brings you comfort and joy to look at. Rotating between multiple colors or patterns can be a smart way to feel like you’re redecorating your bedroom every few months.

The soft, breathable material is machine washable on the gentle cycle and can be tumble dried on low.

At the end of the day (because, hey, that’s when you’re likely going to bed), the most important quality in bedding is how well you can sleep in it. Sateen is a popular cotton texture for people who like softer, silkier feels, while percale, another common kind of cotton, is cooler and less heavy. Although cotton is the most common, some duvet covers are also available in cooling linen—or in flannel if you get chilly at night.

Also comes in gray, white and dusty blue.

The most frustrating part of owning a duvet cover is the struggle to put it over the comforter. Save yourself the pain by purchasing a duvet cover that has a securing corner device—such as ties, tabs or loops—to keep the comforter in place. They also prevent the comforter from bunching and shifting within the cover during use.
