Put On A Duvet Cover – The Standard Way

Step One – Make a Flat Surface

To make the whole process easier, it is always a good idea to put away any pillows from the bed or any other objects that stand in the way. Having a flat surface to work with will make it easier and save you time since the duvet and a duvet cover are about the same size as your bed. Convenient, don’t you think?

Step Two – Positioning

Position your duvet or comforter on top of your bed, so it is flat and properly aligned with your bed. Grab your favorite duvet cover and turn it inside out. Do not completely roll the duvet cover, just enough so it fits in your hands.

While you have a duvet cover in your hands, locate the top two corners of your duvet. Keep your hands inside the duvet cover.

Step Three – Putting It On

The whole idea of this method is to roll over the duvet cover while the duvet is inside the duvet cover and flip it over. To achieve this, you need to reach for the two top corners on a duvet, while your hands are still in the duvet cover and grab them.

Duvet’s corners and the corners on a duvet corner need to be aligned(two top ones).

Be sure to have a firm grip on the duvet and duvet cover’s corners, and start moving one corner downwards at a time, so the duvet gets inside the cover at least 1/4 of its total length.

Flip the cover over the duvet with your hands. By now, duvet should be inside the duvet cover completely.

Shake the duvet a bit so the cover gets equally distributed and well-positioned around it. After all, corners are equally aligned, then you got it right!

Step Four – Finishing Touches

When the duvet cover is properly dressed around a duvet, now you need to button it up or zip it, depending on your duvet cover. After it is closed, be sure to have the closing side facing the end of your bed.
