To ensure the proper duvet update, decide on overall intended look. Tape trim is best for transitional and modern aesthetics. Tassel tape is ideal for more formal, traditional styles.
Using tailor tape, determine length and width of duvet. Jot dimensions down on notepad using pencil. Referring to measurements on notepad, ask fabric store employee for help choosing proper yardage.
Lay duvet out on a long, flat surface. Protect both the surface and duvet by placing towels down. Once towels are in place, lay duvet down, then remove wrinkles with iron.
Floor-to-ceiling draperies add height, drama and a stylish, modern look to any bedroom.
