Doona covers are important to protect your doona from damaging stains and tears, but choosing the right one can be overwhelming, especially with all the different types of doona covers on the market. With a lot of factors to consider before you make your purchase, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the options available to you. Fortunately, this blog guide will help you find the perfect doona cover that fits your needs and expectations.
Doonas come in a variety of sizes from 1 to 4.4 meters wide. If you have a double bed, you’ll probably want to measure your bed and buy a doona large enough to fit over it. But what if you have a queen or king-sized bed? That’s where a doona cover comes in handy! A good doona cover can help extend your existing mattress by up to three extra feet, making it perfect for keeping warm on colder nights. Depending on your budget and preferences, you can decide what’s best. Look for measurements like corner-to-corner and side-to-side. Do not rely on a single measurement (such as length) if there are two (such as width and length). Please note: The manufacturer of your doona may measure size differently than others; make sure you know how they measure their products before relying on them for size comparison. Single-sized beds are great if you don’t like excess material on your bed or if you don’t want to hide under too many sheets at night. They also look sleeker than their larger counterparts.
It’s important to get your size right when buying a doona cover. You don’t want it too big or too small. So, just how big should it be? A good guide is that you want there to be at least 50cm of fabric on each side of your mattress with an overlap of about 25cm. If you need more space than that, check out our king single cover instead. And if you want less room, say because you like cosying up in winter, go ahead and take some measurements before deciding which one is right for you.
Size is a tricky thing when it comes to purchasing doona covers. To get a good fit, you need to consider your mattress size and your bed frame size. You can find mattresses in all sorts of sizes, from single through king-size and even super king-size. When purchasing a doona cover, it’s important to make sure that it fits over both your mattress and your bed frame properly. Another thing to think about is if you have a waterbed or memory foam, as many of these require specific fitting sheets or covers to fit them properly.
You might think that since your whole body is inside a duvet cover, you don’t have to worry about getting one that’s too small. You are wrong—dead wrong. Make sure your duvet cover fits tightly around your mattress, so there are no wrinkles, especially near any seams. This will help keep your duvet in place when you toss and turn throughout the night, which can otherwise cause uneven wear on both your duvet and comforter. It will also help prevent drafts. If it doesn’t fit well, you can also use sheets or blankets to fill in any gaps between duvets and their cases.
Also, consider shopping around first; some sellers will offer free returns so you can order multiple covers and compare their fit first-hand at home. If possible, try to test out each doona cover on your own bed so you can immediately see how it performs before buying more than one.
