A Kids Duvet Covers Buyers' Guide

Home Improvement,Interior Design
Choosing the right duvet cover for your child’s room can be both daunting and exciting. Daunting because their interests change so quickly and exciting because these changes illustrate big steps in their lives. There are many things to consider before making your purchase, and a few specs you’ll want to know beforehand as well.

Bed Size

Bed sizes vary quite a bit so it is important that you know what you are shopping for before you start looking.

Toddler beds are usually the same dimensions (or close) as a standard infant crib, or 70 x 140 cm. The next step up, the single bed varies from 75 x 180 to 90 x 190. Likewise, double beds vary from 120 x 190 to 135 x 190. And Kings vary from 150 x 200 to 180 x 200.

Given the disparity within each size, it’s important that you know what size bed you are outfitting as well as what the duvet cover you are looking at offers in dimensions.

Fabric Preferences

One important factor that is often lost is child preference. And fabric preference is a big one. Children most often prefer fluffy, cosy bedding. If your child has a favourite blanket or duvet cover already, take a look at that to examine the type and weight of the fabric.

Another important item to consider when choosing the type of fabric for your child’s new duvet cover is durability. Child bedding often requires more laundering – you must make sure it will hold up to multiple (and possibly frequent) washes.

Some of the most common fabrics used for children’s duvet covers are cotton, flannel, fleece and other organic blends. Organic fabrics are a great option because they are produced without the use of chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers.

Where to Buy

Duvet covers for kids are available at a variety of places, both online and in store. You can buy new at department stores, home stores and even online at retailer websites. You can also buy used through online auction and consignment websites.

A simple web search will also help narrow some ideas based on what is currently available.

Choosing the Design

Since a child’s interest changes with the seasons, one of the best suggestions when making a duvet cover purchase is to keep it simple.

Does your daughter like princesses? Talk about the favourite colours that her favourite princess wears. Opt for those instead of a character-specific print.

Does your son like trains? Talk to him about what colour he might paint a train if he had one. Opt for that colour.

Even if you still go for a bold, childlike colour, it will still ensure that their duvet cover grows with them longer than a character-specific ensemble would.

Include Your Child

Once you’ve narrowed your options to a few different styles, include your child in the decision making. Since the duvet cover will be a centrepiece in their room for (hopefully) at least a few years, they should be involved in the decision making process at some point.

But keep it simple. Narrow it down by price and other parental factors and once you’re down to 2-3, put the power in your child’s hands. They might just love their new duvet cover for an extra year just because they were part of the process.

Buying your child a new duvet cover can be a daunting task but this duvet covers buyer’s guide will help you on your way to a decision.
