Duvet Cover Quality?

As you may be aware, these sets are designed to fit different sized duvets, so always make certain when ordering, that you pick the right size to fit your particular type of bed.

Like the actual duvet itself, the quality of the cover is also measured by a term called thread count, which I have explained just below. In simple terms though, the higher the better.

Duvet Cover Prices

These can vary quite a bit, but a good average price to look out for is around £25. For higher thread counts you will pay a little extra, but that is a good average price.

Understanding Thread Counts When Buying Duvet Covers

Thread count in duvet covers can vary quite a bit from as low as 60 and all the way up to 1,000. The most popular duvet cover  range is from around 300-400 thread count.

To keep things simple, the higher the thread count, the softer the duvet cover will feel. So if you own a high thread count duvet, you should consider buying a similar quality for your covers.

Which Brands Make Duvet Covers in the UK?

There are quite a number of brands competing for these types of covers in the United Kingdom. I have listed some of the most popular ones below:

  • Homescapes
  • Sapphire Collection
  • Sunshine Comforts
  • Hachette

As you can see there are quite a lot of these. You can buy duvet covers in the UK in a whole range of stores such as Debenhams, John Lewis, TK Maxx, Marks and Spencer. Argos, Dunelm and Tesco. You can also buy them online at Amazon and other online stores.

How To Buy a Duvet Cover? - Bed Size vs Duvet Size

If you have already bought your duvet, then you will know it size. If not, then our guide just below, should help you pick the right duvet size for your type of bed. We have also done a full article here on the Top 10 Duvets, currently available in the UK.

There are a few different bed sizes available in the UK as I am sure you know. Let's have a closer look at those. Please note carefully that the ones shown below are those used by UK manufacturers and are the most common sizes.

Type of Bed

Actual Size

Small Single Bed

2' 6" wide and 6' 3" long

Standard Single Bed

3 feet wide and 6' 3" long - most common bed size for kids and bunk beds

Small Double Bed

4 feet wide and 6' 3" long

Normal Double Bed

4' 6" wide and 6' 3" long

King Bed

5 feet wide and 6' 6" long

Super King Size Bed

6 feet wide and 6' 6" long

In the UK you may hear people refer to "Queen" sized beds and this can get confusing. That term is more used in the USA and Europe but not here in the UK. For example a King size bed in the UK is approximately the same size as an American Queen sized bed. To add even more confusion some UK manufacturers refer to a small double as a Queen bed.

Stick to the ones that I have outlined above, and you will not go far wrong when buying your duvet and its cover. Now clearly, depending on the size of bed that you have will then determine the size of duvet that you want.

Duvet Size

Please note these are standard UK duvet sizes


Length 200cm x Width 135cm


Length 200cm x Width 200cm


Length 220cm x Width 225cm.

Super King

Length 220cm x Width 260cm

Best Duvet Cover Set For Your Duvet

So as long as you know the duvet size, you simple have to buy the right cover to fit that. With a single set you will get a cover and one pillowcase. For the double, King or Super King you will get 2 pillowcases.

Mattress Size

Mattress Bed Size in Inches

Duvet Size to Buy In Inches

Single - 36 x 75

53 x 79

Double - 47 x 75

79 x 79

King Size - 60 x 78

89 x 87

Super King Size

102 x 87

The basic idea is that the duvet should fully cover the mattress and lap over a few inches all the way around.

Caring for Your Duvet Cover Set

The actual duvet should be washed and cleaned every 6 months and at least annually. The covers will need washed more often than that. Most makers of these recommend at least a monthly wash.

The huge majority of these are machine washable. Only a few however, can be put into a tumble drier. If that is important to you, then always check before buying.
