For many parts of Australia, winters don’t really get that cold. While the days can be chilly, and the nights can get quite bitter, Aussie winters have nothing on places like Russia and Canada where temperatures regular drop to minus twenty and below. But, while it may not be that cold in comparison to other countries, Australia can still feel cold to Aussies. To protect against those winter chills, it pays to be prepared. There is double glazing for windows, there are draft excluders for doors, and there are heaters and cosy clothing for added warmth. When it comes to bedding, there are plenty of ways to stay warm and toasty throughout those long, cold winter nights. Choosing flannelette sheets is a great start, and an electric blanket can certainly make getting into bed much more enjoyable. But for long-lasting warmth throughout the night, a winter-rated quilt or doona is an absolute must-have. Super warm duvets and quilts are perfect for keeping the warmth in and the cold out, with options in down or feather, as well as more allergy-friendly synthetic materials.
Just as there are quilts and doonas designed specifically for winter, there are also quilts and doonas that work well in summer. These lighter designs offer breathability, while offering just enough heat to stay warm in the hotter weather. Too hot for a doona? Other summer bedding options could include a bedspread or coverlet, a coverlet set or a patchwork quilt. These come in a range of sizes to suit all types of beds. For babies and little kids, there are options to fit a cot or cotbed, for older kids and adults, there are options to fit a single, double, queen or king bed. Ready to start shopping?
