White Duvet Covers

White is probably the most popular colour for duvet covers. It's bright, versatile and you can still easily add colour with cushions and bed throws. There are so many duvet covers available in all shades of white - not just plain white, but elegant and subtle shades like ivory and cream. Plus there's also a big choice of fabrics, motifs and features to match. We have hand picked the very best white duvet covers for you below, so you don't need to spend hours searching through all the bedding web sites - you can find all the best ones here, at a glance. We take great care in selecting only the best: we don't believe in including every single piece of bed linen - we want to present you with a choice of both quality and value, with something to suit all tastes and budgets.

Our Choice: White Duvet Covers

What could be better than snuggling under a crisp, white duvet cover! White bed linen is so simple, yet so elegant. A white duvet cover can be as minimalist as you choose, perhaps in plain bright white, made from the best Egyptian cotton. A crisp, white duvet cover can bring a clear, fresh and pure touch to your bedroom.

There are also many white duvet covers that set themselves apart with unusual weaves and texture in the materials to great effect, such as pintucks, stripes or pleats, perhaps mixing materials too, such as cotton with thin satin stripes that can really shine and lift the whiteness, without being overpowering or too domineering. Designers also understand that white can be a blank canvas to allow them to add all sorts of splashes of colour, printed patterns or embroidered motifs.

There's such an amazing choice of white duvet covers around these days means that there's surely something for everyone. A white duvet cover will brighten up any bedroom. It can be kept simple and plain, or used as a blank canvas and dressed with bed throws, cushions and blankets.

Quick tip on getting the right White Duvet Cover

OK, we know this sounds obvious, but white and cream etc are very pale. And often, material in very pale colours such as these could well be a little transparent or see through. In other words, if you buy the wrong white duvet cover, you may well be able to see the actual duvet through it. Not always a problem if you have a perfectly clean duvet, but some duvets have a stronger, off-white tone to them, especially as they age, with maybe one or two tea stains along the way! It's not a great look to have this colour showing through your white duvet cover. A good way around this is to buy a duvet cover of thicker, better quality material. So our tip (and we speak from experience) is to avoid the cheaper poly cotton types when it comes to pale colour bedding, and choose something that has a dense, high thread count, preferably made from 100% cotton.

Finding Duvet Covers that Shine

When shopping around for duvet covers, you will soon become aware that there is quite a lot of technical sounding information when it comes to material. You'll see phrases like "thread count" or words like "percale". To find out what is meant by these terms, see our Duvet Cover Materials page.

But for the purpose of this page, we wanted to point out the difference a duvet cover made from quality material can make. For example, you may have seen photos (such as the one below) of white bed linen that really shines. Or perhaps you stayed in a fancy hotel and noticed how the bed linen reflected the light. Well this is all down to the fact this particular bedding is made from 100% cotton, often Egyptian cotton, with a high thread count. Lower quality material will seemingly absorb light rather than reflect it. So if you want your bedroom to really shine, make sure you opt for something in high quality material.

Some typical questions we are often asked...

Is white the best colour for a duvet cover?

Well, it's certainly the most versatile. You can use it for the minimalist look, or easily add some colour to your bedroom look by adding bed throws or cushions.

What size is a double duvet cover?

Duvet cover sizes do vary a little between retailers and manufacturers, so to be precise, always check on their web sites for specific dimensions. But for an overview of sizes, single duvet cover usually fit a duvet measuring 135cm x 200cm, double duvet covers fit 200cm x 200cm, and king size duvet covers fit 225cm x 220cm.

What is the best duvet cover material?

We feel it's always best to get a duvet cover in a natural fibre, such as 100% cotton. It's generally softer, more absorbent and longer lasting. Try to look for a high thread count and also keep an eye out for any Egyptian cotton bargains - they do come up quite often, and if there are any, you will be sure to find them here.

Where is the best shop to buy a duvet cover?

There are many good bedding stores around. Since we are online, we tend to check the online stores in particular. We try only to include items from reputable and trustworthy retailers, such as John Lewis and Marks and Spencer.
