What Duvet Size is Best?

What Duvet Size is Best?

Duvet Size Guide

Over recent years the range of bed sizes has increased enormously.   Up until the last 15 years or so your choice would have been quite limited to possibly 4 sizes.  These being Single, Double, King and Super King.
In the last few years size choices have increased.  Firstly with the introduction of adjustable beds, then 4ft or three quarter beds and larger beds such as emperor and caesar sizes.

For each of these sizes you should be able to get a duvet that fits.  Standard size duvets can either look to small or can drown the bed with too much coverage.

We've put together a handy guide for each size of duvet we have and what size duvet would fit best.

UK Single - 135 x 200cm (54 x 78in)
A great size duvet for childrens beds, bunk beds or any bed up to a UK single size (90 x 191cm).

Long Single - 135 x 220cm (54 x 86in)
Suitable for beds up to 3ft wide (90cm) but can cover a metric single (100 x 200cm) at a stretch.  The extra length of this duvet also makes it ideal for longer 6'6" (200cm) or 7ft (215cm) beds.  Reduce the likelihood of cold toes!

Large Single - 150 x 220cm (60 x 86in)
A larger single size that is ideal for all sizes of single bed.  This duvet is a generous cover for standard and metric singles and fits large single 3'6" (107cm) beds perfectly.

Small Double - 185 x 220 (72 x 86in)
Ideal for 4ft, three quarter beds.  Our Small double size is generous enough to cover both small double(4ft x 6ft 3") and long small double (4ft x 6ft 6") sizes.

Double - 200 x 200cm (78 x 78in)
A classic size made to fit UK double (4ft 6" x 6ft 3") size beds.  Longer versions of this duvet are available to cover 6ft 6in and 7ft beds, if you would like to know more please contact us.

King - 225 x 220cm (90 x 86in)
Ideal for all types of king size bed like the UK King (5ft x 6ft 6") but will also fit European King (160 x 200cm) and California King Beds  (6ft x 7ft).

Super King - 260 x 220cm (102 x 86in)
The perfect size UK Super King (6ft x 6ft 6") and any nearby variations such as European Super King (170 x 200cm) and Small Super King (5ft 6" x 6ft 6") beds.

Emperor - 292 x 235cm (115 x 92in)

A great size for larger than standard 6ft 6" x 6ft 6" beds and any close variation such as 7ft x 6ft 6" or the large emperor 7ft x 7ft size.

Caesar - 320 x 235cm (127 x 92in)

This size can cover Emperor 6ft 6in and 7ft beds with a generous hang over.  But is also ideal for 8ft Caesar beds with lengths up to 8ft long.

Super Caesar - 350 x 250cm (137 x 98in)

Our biggest duvet will cover large beds.  Even up to the grandest size such as a Super Caesar 9ft x 9ft in size.

This is the second time I have bought a fitted bottom sheet for our bed. On both occasions I received the sheet within 3 weeks, accompanied by a card personally signed by the staff member who had lovingly made it! Thank you so much, Shelagh!

ght our bed base when living in the States 20 years ago, the retailers don't stock, or even know where to source sheets etc for out of the ordinary sizes.

I wasn't too sure how to measure the gap for the split corner valance, but the lady on the 'phone was so helpful and friendly. I would definitely order from the Victoria Linen Company again.
