How To Put a Duvet Cover: The Traditional Way

Since the invention of duvet covers, this way was the easiest and the oldest way you could opt for. It will achieve your goal though it comes with some challenges. In this, we highly recommend this option for use with smaller duvets. Here is a step-by-step guide for the traditional way.

Step 1. Spread your comforter flat on your bed as if you were spreading it for use.

​Step 2. Turn your duvet cover inside out as you reach out to find the top two corners with each corner on each of your hands.

​Step 3. With the duvet cover in position, reach for the top two corners of your comforter and grab them.

Step 4. You can turn the duvet cover right side ensuring that the comforter falls between the cover. At this point, your hands will not be in between the cover but out in the open.

​Step 5. Shake it with hands remaining in position and fluff it with the aim of ensuring that the duvet cover falls all the way to cover the comforter.

Step 6. Lay the combination on your bed and pull the duvet cover down while ensuring that you spread and stuff the bottom comforter in the cover. This ensures that everything is in place with perfect alignment.

Step 7. Finish by zipping up the duvet cover and your comforter is ready for use.​

The traditional way works easier for smaller comforters where one can easily reach the two corners with ease. We recommend the rolling technique for those who may have it difficult with the traditional method. Here is how to do it.


Step 1. Turn your duvet cover inside out and lay it on your bed. Ensure that the duvet cover is facing away from you.

Step 2. Place your comforter on top of your duvet cover with all corners and edges neatly aligned​.

Step 3. If your cover features interior corner ties, tie them to your comforter loops.

Step 4. With everything in position, position yourself at the opening of the duvet cover and start to roll the comforter and cover together. Ensure you adjust the edges accordingly to ensure they stay together in the right proportion.

Step 5. Once you roll it up completely, grab one end of the roll. At the enclosure of the duvet cover, stuff the entire roll inside.

Step 6. Zip up your duvet cover. Align the roll with your bed ensuring that the zipper is aligned with the bottom of your bed.

Step 7. Unroll it and once it is complete, shake it and it is ready for use.
