For the aesthetically driven, the desire to find best duvet cover can kick off a massive search to find the perfect design that captures the look you're trying to create in your bedroom. It's the most visible piece of bedding, and thus makes a major impact on your bedroom's style. 

We particularly love using duvet covers for being easy to care for and wash, as well as the ability to swap out as the seasons, or our taste change. They also protect your duvet, which doesn't need to be cleaned as frequently, which overall can help manage allergies, comfort, and keep your bedroom cleaner.

To help you create the perfect cloud bed of your dreams, first, we sleep-tested the best duvet inserts before rounding up the best covers to complement them. Every pick on our list is great in its own right, but we've also called out where each particularly shines, whether it'll add warmth to your bed, save you money, or contribute to your goal of creating an eco-friendly space.

How to choose a duvet cover 

With so many brands, materials, and price point to choose from, finding the right duvet cover for your lifestyle can be easier said than done.

Fabric: The average person spends about a third of their life in bed, so the last thing you want to do is spend all that precious time with scratchy sheets. But not only does a fabric impact the overall feel of your duvet cover, but it also contributes to how warm your bed feels. 

Lightweight fabrics like linen are perfect for warm sleepers, while heavier materials such as flannel or cashmere will make your bed extra toasty. Looking for a fabric you can enjoy year-round? Try percale or sateen. While both materials are made with cotton, percale is generally known for being crisp and breathable whereas sateen has a buttery-soft feel and sheeny finish.

Certifications: How your duvet cover is made is just as important as its materials. When shopping for your duvet cover, it’s important to look for special certifications. For example, allergy-prone people should look for a hypoallergenic duvet cover. If you're on the hunt for a sustainable style, keep your eye out for pieces that are fair trade, REACH-compliant, and OEKO-TEKcertified.

Closure: No matter how clean you keep your bed, everyone will have to wash their duvet cover. Before you purchase a duvet cover, ask yourself how easy it is to take on and off. Is the insert hole large enough to fit your duvet? Do you prefer a zip or button closure? And, most important, are there four ties at the corners to keep your duvet in place? Once you answer these questions, you’re yet another step closer to finding your dream duvet cover.

Care: Most duvet covers are machine washable, but once you add on embroidery, embellishments, or specialty fabrics, note these may be dry clean only.  And while it's not uncommon for your cotton duvet covers to come wrinkly out of the wash, we've found the best hack to get wrinkles out of the duvet cover, and it even doesn't require an iron. 

When to replace your duvet cover

As the saying goes, nothing lasts forever – and your duvet cover is no exception. While a duvet cover can help prolong the life of your blanket, it's not immune to wear and tear. We recommend replacing your duvet every five years. While you're at it, why not get a new duvet cover to match? That said, duvet covers don't have expiration date. If your duvet cover has obvious wear and tear before the five-year mark, it’s in your best interest to replace it before it’s on its last legs. Don't worry: when the time comes to replace your duvet cover, you have some great options waiting to be added to your e-cart.
