King Size Duvet Cover

There are many different styles to choose from when buying a king size duvet cover.  Most likely, you already have an idea of the type of cover you are interested in. If not, a simple search online will soon show you the many different styles you can choose between.  For example, are you looking for a casual style cover, or a more traditional one?  Do you want stripes, solids or a floral pattern?  What color will you choose?

Perhaps the first thing to decide is what color your king size duvet cover should be.  You can either choose a color that matches with your overall bedroom decor, specifically something that matches with your curtains for example. Alternatively, you can try something bold, and different, and choose a totally contrasting color that will draw attention to your bed and make it stand out as the focal point in your room. This last technique works well if the overall room decor is a more subdued tone.

When it comes to stripes, florals and unpatterned covers; traditionally stripes complement men's beds, florals are considered for women only, and the plain, unpatterned cover tends to end up being the standard choice for couple's beds.  You can always try something new, though.  I have seen some fantastic duvet covers with an oriental appeal, featuring bamboo, for example. These would fit perfectly on any bed, and are really very much suited to either men or women.  Do not limit yourself but look around and see what is available. 

If you are looking for a casual duvet cover, check out the plain colored damask covers. They are available in many different colors, and especially the earth colors really do lend a casual and relaxed air to any room.  If, on the other hand, you are looking for something more traditional, take a look at the traditional white or ivory covers. Of course, they are much more difficult to keep looking nice and clean than darker colored covers, or patterned covers, but they do look very chic and have the added benefit of fitting in with any decor. 

Whatever cover you decide on, it is important to make sure that it is easy to use, and that it is machine washable as well.   You may decide to purchase a couple of cover, one to use during the cooler winter months and a lighter weight one that is perfect to use during summer. Not only can you buy covers made from different material, but also you can even decide on different colors for different seasons.
