12 Cozy Bedroom Buys You Need for Fall
Build the comfiest bed for fall with these plush mattress toppers, flannel sheets, sherpa blankets and more.
We've officially reached that time of year when the breezy, cotton percale sheets just don't cut it anymore. Sure, they might be soft, but they're just not warm enough, not snuggly enough for those brisk evenings around the bend. And that can only mean one thing: It's time to call in the wool, flannel and fleece reinforcements.
Lucky for you, we've already found the cutest and coziest fall bedding sets available. Read on to build your perfect bed from the mattress up, and settle into the season in autumnal style.
Wool is synonymous with warmth and coziness, so a wool mattress pad is a must-have. In addition to being hypoallergenic and resistant to mold, this plush mattress topper naturally retains heat and helps regulate body temperature to keep you warm in the fall/winter and cool in the summer. (That means you can use it year-round.) It's also washer-friendly and equipped with elastic straps so you can secure it firmly in place.
And if you live somewhere where it gets really cold? Then you should definitely snag this heated mattress pad. A fitted skirt provides a non-slip fit, while the flexible wires deliver up to 80 degrees of heat. You can use it to pre-warm your bed, to soothe stiff muscles and aching joints, or just to get that totally-toasty effect. It automatically shuts off after 10 hours and includes two controllers for you and your sleep partner.
Breathable yet naturally insulating, flax linen sheets are the perfect way to ease your bedroom into fall. On those last few hot summer nights, the lightly textured fabric will keep you nice and cool, but as the temperature dips, it'll feel more like a thin blanket layered under your comforter. These Belgian Flax Linen sheets have a lived-in look that we absolutely love and are available in 13 different fall-friendly colors, like sage and fig.
Flannel sheets? Yes, please! Lay on the fall color and comfort with these festive sheets featuring tossed leaves. Because they're made from cotton flannel, which is heavier than flax linen, they'll keep you nice and warm on those super chilly evenings while enlivening your neutral bedding.
For the record, you can never have too much flannel. Lean into snuggle season with a set of these cozy, cotton flannel sheets. You'll love how the light orange, blue and cream brighten the buffalo check pattern and give your bedroom an autumn-appropriate, country-chic look. Each set comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases.
You've never really been as snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug until you've slept on microfleece sheets. Crafted from 100-percent polyester, thicker fabric than most, these fleece sheets are unbelievably warm. Best of all? They have an anti-pill design, so they'll look just as new and feel just as soft after every wash cycle.
Sumptuous and soft to the touch, chenille makes for the perfect fall layering piece. Leave it at the foot of your bed for a high-end dose of texture, or slip it under the covers to create a cocoon of comfort. It's available in six different hues, but we're partial to this fashion-forward dusty rose.
Who could possibly say no to sherpa? Add an extra layer of warmth to your bed (and create a snuggly space that's so, so hard to leave in the morning), with this thermal knit sherpa blanket. The front features marled yarn in an ochre hue for a homespun look and hides the sherpa side from your family — so you don't have to worry about sharing!
If you can't sleep in your favorite sweater, the next best thing is obviously bundling up in a chunky knit throw blanket. The machine-washable, mid-weight material will bring all the delicious fall texture to your space, while the marled gray hue will coordinate well with your year-round decor.
Duvet Covers + Comforters
Down has a reputation for being exceptionally warm, comfortable and long-lasting when properly cared for. (Read: It should never be washed, only dry-cleaned.) So this heavyweight down-filled duvet insert might be a great investment for your bedroom. It even features a clever, baffle-block construction for maximum loft and minimum shifting of the down.
Down might be warm, but it's not the only option for comfy fall bedding. If you're looking for an eco-friendly and low-maintenance alternative to feathers and fluff, snag this classic plaid bedding set from Pendleton. It comes with a hypoallergenic, polyester-filled comforter and is safe to toss in the wash.
If you've already got the uber-snuggly fleece sheets, bring in some fall color by way of this adorable cotton duvet cover. Warm notes of ochre, umbre and taupe, plus wheat and other botanicals, make this bedspread look festive-yet-timeless.
