Buying new bedding can be fun and exciting, especially if you have a little bit of money to spend. There are a wide range of options to choose from, with different doonas varying in price, quality, size and material. Some expensive doonas use down or wool, while cheaper options are often purely synthetic (and therefore won’t last as long or be as warm).

Buy a Quilt or Bedspread to Go with Your Doona

Getting the right bedding for a good night’s sleep involves buying a number of different things. Sure, you probably have pillows and sheets, but there are a few other things you can add. Think about purchasing a quilt or bedspread to add to your bed. You can put this on top of your doona for nights when it is colder than usual, or you can use it in place of your doona on warmer nights.

Be Aware of Quality Differences

There is a huge quality gap between the best and the worst doonas on the market, and this is often the difference between natural and synthetic materials. If you are a little short on money, go for a 100 percent cotton doona. Bedding with this cotton count is generally relatively good quality but still affordable. Don’tsucker yourself into buying the cheapest bedding on the market; go for something slightly more expensive and make sure that you stay comfortable at night!

Choose the Right Size

Unfortunately, many people forget to check the size of the bedding that they are purchasing. This can lead to you receiving a new doona that doesn’t even fit on your bed. Buying a doona that is too big can be a pain, as you may find that it hangs off the sides of the bed onto the floor. Buying one that is too small can be equally annoying, as it simply won’t be big enough to cover the bed. Make sure that you check both the size of your bed and the size of the bedding you are buying; doing so will save you a lot of trouble in the long run.
