Considering freshening up the look of your bedroom or guest room, but don't want to redecorate the entire room? A proper duvet cover can inject some fresh style, design, and color into the room without costing a pretty penny along the way. Duvet covers come in a wide array of sizes, colors, patterns, and materials. While looks are important, we've also taken into account the ease of use and maintenance instructions for each of these duvet covers, and made sure that they're reasonable value for money.
Our top pick in all natural cotton
This is our favorite set in 100% cotton: it's durable and classic
- Gorgeously soft cotton
- Cool feel, perfect if you get hot at night
- Range of colors and patterns
- Naturally wrinkly texture – not smooth
- No overhang
The ATsense Duvet Cover is everything you want from you bed linen: natural (it's 100 per cent cotton), well made and durable, and washes beautifully. And comes in all the neutral colors you could want, from crisp white to greys and pinks and checks. What we really like about this set (two pillowcases included) is that it comes pre-washed for that extra soft feel. Those who love their sheets extra smooth may not like this finish, but we urge you to give it a go – you might just change your mind.
Our favorite cover in linen fabric
You won't believe how soft this linen duvet cover feels.
- 100% linen
- Gorgeous neutral coloring
- Exquisite detailed trim
The Simple&Opulence 100% Washed Linen Duvet Cover Set is for those who are serious about their bedlinen. The fabric, color and design of this duvet cover set (two pillow cases are included) are pure luxury. Linen is one of the best fabrics for cooling you down at night, wicking away moisture from your body. It also gets softer the more you wash it. And we really like the stitched trim detailing on this set, which gives it a slightly retro look. If you've always wanted to try linen but have felt unsure, this is the linen duvet cover to go for.
Easygoing seersucker looks great without the effort
This seersucker design is low-maintenance, with a chic finish.
- Comes in six neutral shades
- Elegant look
- Zipper closure
- Only comes in three sizes
The IKONICASA Light Gray Seersucker Duvet Cover Set is one of the best you can buy because its textured exterior means it doesn't need ironing and will look great for prolonged use. This set is available in six colors, from baby pink to a cool mint. It has a zipper closure, making it easy to use, and comes in twin, queen, or king sizes.
The duvet cover comes with two matching pillowcases, and the underside is a plain smooth finish which you can easily flip over for a different look.
Our top pick if you want a duvet cover and pillow covers
This set is pretty and stripy, and made from cotton.
- Cheerful stripes design
- 100% cotton
- Zip closure cover
- Quality of the cotton could be a bit softer
- The color is a bit lighter than the photo
The Wake In Cloud Gray White Striped Duvet Cover Set will delight those who love stripes, and it's very affordable, too. In 100 per cent cotton, it features a zip cover and ties. A very nice option if you like changing your bedding often and want something with a summer vacation vibe. The one downside of this duvet cover set is that the cotton is ever so slightly scratchy, although it does soften up a bit with washing. The perfect set for a guest bedroom, in our opinion.
Our top pick if you like your bedding easy care
This low maintenance duvet cover is also very soft.
- Easy care
- Soft feel
- Zip cover design
- It is synthetic, so not the most breathable
The Dreaming Wapiti Duvet Cover is a great option is you like your bedding super low maintenance and washable in low temperatures. The microfiber in this duvet set has been washed, giving it a super-soft feel. It also drapes spectacularly well and doesn't crease. There are several trendy color options, including a beautiful duty 'mocha' pink. But our favorite feature of this bedding set is probably the fact that the duvet cover has a zip – no time-consuming buttons. Bear in mind, though, that microfiber is synthetic and isn't the best choice if you're a sweaty sleeper.
Our favorite botanical print bedding
Get summery vibes all year long with this pretty design.
- Super pretty design
- Corner ties
- 100% cotton
- Wrinkles easily
- Can be fiddly to put on
The Wake In Cloud Botanical Duvet Set includes a duvet cover and pillow cases, both in the same delightful floral print that will instantly liven up a neutral bedroom. Made from a lovely cotton fabric, it's breathable and washes well. We like that the duvet cover has corner ties that ensure your comforter doesn't move around in the cover. The type of cotton this duvet set is made from is on the thinner, crinklier side, so it does wrinkle easily, which is something to bear in mind.
Prepare for some serious comfort
Stay warm and cosy through the winter.
- Incredibly comfy
- Huge range of colors
- Zipper closure
- Pillowcase not included
The XeGe Polyester Shaggy Duvet Cover has the soft and fuzzy feel of a cuddly stuffed animal. It's available in 19 colors, including neutrals such as white and gray, and bright colors like purple and green. The inside has a velvety finish and the exterior is longer and looks fantastic. This duvet cover comes in twin, king, and queen sizes, and while there are matching pillow cases available they don't come included. This duvet cover will keep you warm and cosy all winter long, but it could get a little warm in the winter.
