King Size Duvet Measurements

Duvets are an integral part of any bedding ensemble and getting the measurements right can make the difference between a well-thought out interior, or an interior disaster. Duvets can help fill out a bed and aid in a good night’s sleep. 

Whether your bed is a single, or a king-size bed, choosing the right size for your duvet can affect how your bed looks and can alter the look of your room, making it appear smaller than it is. Small duvets can cheapen a room and ruin the aesthetic of the whole interior, while duvets that are too large can damage a night’s sleep if you feel entrapped by the heavy, large duvet. Whatever your bed size, it is vital that you know the right size duvet for your bedding to help you get the best night’s sleep and don’t ruin the aesthetic of your bedroom.

How to Measure Your Mattress

Before buying a duvet, it is important to measure your mattress if you do not know the size, or would like to double check before purchasing a duvet. A retractable measuring tape will make the measuring process easier. 

  1. Strip the mattress before you start measuring to ensure accuracy.
  2. Measure the width by placing the end of the tape in the middle of the left-hand side of the mattress, and then extend the tape to the right-hand side of the mattress in the middle.
  3. Measure the width by placing the end of the tape in the middle of the top of the mattress, and then extend the tape to the bottom of the mattress in the middle.

Top Tips for Buying a Duvet Cover

Buying duvet covers can sometimes feel confusing, with stores offering a wide selection of choices. Take a look at our top tips of how to avoid any duvet-related pitfalls. 

  1. International sizes use different terms for mattress and duvet sizes, so be careful if you are looking at products from other countries.
  2. A double duvet is square, so it can be fitted into the duvet cover any way round. 
  3. Duvet covers are always made to fit the same size duvet, so you do not need to buy a bigger duvet cover size than your duvet. 
  4. The width of a king size duvet is slightly wider than its length, so ensure that you have the duvet in the correct way when you put the cover on.
