How to Choose the Perfect Fall Bedding
Summer is fading fast, and most people's thoughts are turning to the autumn season.
Fall is the time of bonfires, hoodies, and football games. There are too many reasons to love fall to count, but it's also a time to spruce up our homes and bring a little of the fall season inside for many homeowners.
Staying healthy is one of the most important things when the chilly weather hits, but you also want to be comfortable and warm in your own home. So one of the best ways to celebrate the fall season is by switching out your summer bedding for fall bedding.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and there's no better thing than curling up in your cozy bed to read on a chilly autumn night. So if you've been wondering how to choose the perfect fall bedding for those colder nights, read on below for a few tips to help you get started.
Change Out Your Sheets and Blankets
While cool, crisp sheets feel amazing when the temperature is in the 100's outside, once the temperatures start to drop, those same sheets can feel frigid and unwelcoming.
Swapping those summer sheets out for flannel or fleece will make quite a difference in your comfort as the season grows cooler. So take the thin summer blanket from your bed and add a quilt in vibrant fall colors, and don't forget to change out your duvet insert as well.
If you haven't already, invest in a luxury weighted blanket for an extra level of comfort as fall turns into winter. New bedding will increase the coziness level in your bedroom until you want to snuggle under the blankets all winter long.
Choose a Warm Color Scheme
The autumn season is all about warm colors and falling leaves, so it stands to reason that you'd want a warm color scheme for your fall bedding set. A warm color choice when you buy bedding can help you achieve your goal of a cozy sleep environment.
Remember, the color of the fall bedding set you choose will set the mood for the entire room. Red and gold bedspreads can give a rich feeling to your bedroom. However, if rich autumn tones aren't your style, you can swap out your white pillows for brown, grey, or navy blue instead and get the same results.
When choosing a warm color scheme, don't forget the fall throw pillows. There's just something about strategically placed pillows in the autumn of the year that screams warmth and comfort.
Cold weather means you need to add layers to your bed to keep you warm when the snow starts to fly. The act of adding layers to your bed in the fall instantly brings warmth to your bedroom.
After you put on your flannel or fleece sheets, add several layers of blankets, then a fall-colored quilt to the mix. Pillows in fall colors piled on the bed will add even more fall ambiance and warmth to your room. Finally, add a throw blanket to the bottom of the bed to keep warm during those afternoon naps you might take in the long winter ahead.
Add a Canopy
A lovely canopy over your bed will give the illusion of warmth as well. There are many different canopy styles to choose from. From dramatic tapestries to romantic sheers, there's a canopy out there for everyone. But, no matter which style you choose, these are sure to add a touch of warmth and coziness to your fall bedding this upcoming season.
Don't Forget the Rest of Your Bedroom
Once you have your fall bedding squared away, it's essential not to forget to add autumn touches to the rest of your bedroom. You'll find a couple of ideas below to bring warmth to your entire room this fall.
Nothing says warmth on a chilly fall morning than putting your feet on a warm rug beside your bed. If you're looking to up the coziness factor, add two rugs to the room—one beside your bed and the other in an area where you spend a lot of time.
For example, if you have a chair in the corner of the room where you read at night, put a rug there to up the coziness levels and ensure your feet don't get cold.
While scented candles are great to scatter around your home any time of the year, the fall scents are amazing. Some of the best scents to bring into your bedroom during the autumn season include pumpkin spice, oakmoss, cinnamon, warm wood, sandalwood, clary sage, apple, and any other scented candle that represents the season.
Choose scents that complement one another and set the candles strategically around your bedroom. Essential oils also work well for spreading the fragrances throughout your bedroom, but they don't have the same warm ambiance that candles do at this time of year.
It's important to note that candles are flammable. So make sure you never leave a lit candle unattended or have one lit around children or pets.
