We recently set up a king single bed for DS, when looking for quilts and covers we struggled to find KS quilt covers we liked.

So I am thinking of returning our KS quilt (which I haven't opened) and buying a double.

Will the double fit okay? The queen will be the right length but width is too wide, double a tad shorter but not so wide on the bed?

So if you have a KS bed, what size quilt do you have? We have found most kids quilt covers come in single or double, which is why I thought swap for a double.

I did warn it was fluff...
Thanks

DD has a king single and we use a single Doona - it's fine. I think a double would over hang too much.

King sindle for DS9, with Double quilt (and electric blanket). We have a queen with king doona, specifically for the overhang.

DS has a king single and his quilt and quilt cover are a double.

We have a double quilt on DD's king single, as I prefer it a bit longer.

Double, makes it really toasty on cold nights. We had to back to a single bed after using the king single, but still se the double blanket.

Less chance of the blanket being kicked off in my house too lol

I also use a double duvet on DD ing single bed and it works very well. Nice and easy to tuck in on both sides but it doesn't hang to low. Plus it's easy to find duvet covers for a double!

I used a double bed sized doona/cover on my single bed when in college... and now I have a queen bed I have a king doona/cover.

Extra doona is never a bad thing.

Yes double is fine, its actually a better fit. I always buy a size bigger for quilts. I have a queen bed and a king quilt and the girls have king single beds and double quilts.

Target have heaps of king single quilt covers.  I was having problems finding normal single ones.  The are not egyptian cotton, but not Kmart quality either.

My DS only has a single bed, and we have always used a double doona.

If you are having trouble finding KS covers, sheets etc, have a look on Amazon they have a great range of KS stuff at reasonable prices. The reason i knwo this is because we are getting DS a KS soon and wanted to make sure you could what was needed as i know furniture places and spotlight, target etc do not have a great range of KS stuff.

DD has a king size bed and a double doona. Its a little shorter than the bed but nice and wide. We have a king size on our queen size bed. Much more doona to try and share!

Great thanks, will swap it for a double then. I was worried about the double being a bit short but sounds like it works fine original.gif

We looked in spotlight, and all the kids range was either single or double, so I was doubting the availability of KS elsewhere.

Thanks heaps heading to the shops now!

DD has a KS bed, we use a Q size quilt and a D size quilt cover. I don't find that it hangs too low.

I got a KS when I was 13, with a double quilt.  I didn't know they even made KS quilts.  We have  queen with a king quilt for the overhang.

I was looking for a KS quilt recently as DD was given a KS quilt cover - turns out the measurements of KS and Double quilt are the same in most cases ....

IMO a Queen is better so long as your bed isn't really low to the ground then I would stick with a Double/KS ...

Yep same here.

We use a double quilt on both our kids' king singles.  Fit really well.  

Getting a double top sheet too means there's plenty to tuck in which is nice also.

We used to have KS as kids. Mum would get us KS sheets, but double sized doona covers. I believe in catalogues I have seen more kid prints in KS, but that might be at Pillow Talk and the speciality sheet stores

DD has a KS bed and uses a Single doona. She gets too hot other wise and finds it hard to push a double off her.

#23 *-*

Posted 23 January 2013 - 10:07 AM

ALL the Doonas and covers in our house are 1 size larger than the bed size.

The King Single has a double.

The double has a Queen.

The Queen has a King.

The king has a super king.

I Like the overhang - I think it looks much neater, and covers the mattress much better... plus there is far more Doona there for cold nights, which means it's less likely to fall off OR get stolen by DH lol.

#24 Sentient Puddle

Posted 23 January 2013 - 10:09 AM

We have 2 KS beds in this house and I thought when we got them we would need to get doubles - but the single doonas and covers are more than adequate - cover the bed fine!

#25 againagain

Posted 23 January 2013 - 10:37 AM

We have doubles but they do annoy me sometimes when the bed is made that you need an extra pillow at the top to cover the gap. They are just a touch too short.

If you don't look to closely it doesn't matter, and my kids don't care at all.
