Whether you’re shopping for a duvet cover for your dorm room or looking for a high-quality duvet cover that will last for years to come, choosing the right one is important. Most of us spend one-third of our lives—or approximately 25 years!—in bed, after all. And since duvets are interchangeable throughout the year (you may opt for a thinner duvet in the summer and thicker duvet in the winter, for example), a duvet cover can be a very versatile — and utilitarian — piece of home décor.
The quality... of your bed’s linens can seriously affect your sleep, too. If they’re too hot, not warm enough, too scratchy or simply poorly made, you may lose some valuable zzz’s; and with so many materials, styles and brands available, it can be hard to tell if you’re choosing the right one.
Enter, our guide to the best duvet covers. From basic cotton, to lux linen, we’ve rounded up the top picks in a variety of styles and budgets.
