Teen duvet covers in solid colors run the gamut from neutral hues in grey, navy, tan, and beige to bright shades of orange, blue, pink, teal, yellow, and purple. This allows your child to pick out a favorite color to make a color-themed room, or you can choose a color that sets a particular mood. Blue or green might set a relaxing tone, while orange, red, or yellow create an energetic feel.
Geometric patterns combine colors with shapes in a contrasting hue. Bright patterns of wheels, flowers, and paisleys stand out against a white background and draw attention to the bed. More subtle patterns include metallic elements against a solid color background that add glimmer to the piece while offering a soothing effect for your teen's inner sanctuary. Shapes include trellises, diamonds, polka dots, chevrons, and plaid. Teen duvet covers with patterns can match similar patterns in window treatments, existing bed linens, or wall stencil designs to create a coordinated feel in the room.
Striped patterns let your teen complement more than one hue in the room or provide a way to have different shades of the same color. Stripes in blue, grey, pink, and brown alternate lighter and darker shades, or they gradually go from light to dark and back again along the length of the duvet cover. Alternating stripes of black and white make an entrancing design. Teen duvet covers with multiple colors of stripes make a splash of color without settling on a monochromatic vibe.
Floral patterns lend a touch of nature to the indoors while creating beautifully colored pieces. Floral patterns here range in size from smaller, more traditional looks that have simple flowers over the entire piece up to larger, contemporary floral patterns that dominate the piece with intricate designs in many hues. Large floral patterns stand out more compared to smaller flowers to give your teen's room a modern vibe.
Floral patterns might have texturing to make it seem as if flowers are growing out of the duvet cover. These flaps of fabric form concentric circles in waves to provide a layered appearance and add elegance to appeal to your teen's tactile senses. Pinch pleats create subtle lines in the fabric as they crisscross in square, diamond, or linear patterns. Small tufts stick out from the main duvet cover as tiny pieces of fabric that come in the same color as the main piece or in contrasting hue to make the texturing stand out.
Features of Teen Duvet Covers
Cotton teen duvet covers feel soft and pliable to the touch, much like your teen's T-shirts. Microfiber duvet covers have a slick and sleek feel thanks to tighter weaves and more threads woven together, thereby giving your child's bed a silken, luxurious feel without investing in authentic silk. Polyester is synthetic fiber that's easy to care for in case your teen spills food or drink on the bed. Hypoallergenic materials help prevent dust mites, pet dander, and other environmental allergens from settling into the duvet cover so your child can rest more comfortably. Items with fade and stain resistance could offer better durability due to easier care regimens.
Teen duvet covers come in different thread counts just like any other bedding. Higher thread counts generally mean sturdier construction and a softer feel. Higher thread counts indicate more woven threads per square inch, and these pieces are generally more expensive than lower thread counts. The good news is higher thread counts last longer.
Reversible teen duvet covers let your teenager change the design of the bed, and hence the room, without investing in a second set. Simply take off the duvet cover, turn it inside out, and the bed changes instantly. Check out designs with stripes on one side and flowers on the other, a solid color versus metallic elements, or a solid color and geometric shapes. Pillowcases in a duvet cover set are often reversible as well, so your teen can change the appearance of the bed once a week, month, or year depending on personal preferences.
