As we head into the cooler months of Autumn and with Winter quickly approaching, you might be wondering how you can make your bedroom feel cosier. One of the best feelings, when it’s cold outside, is knowing you’re indoors snuggled under a blanket feeling all cosy and warm – so here are a few of our favourite ideas to help to make your bedroom feel cosier this autumn, ready for even the coldest nights we may get over winter!
Change your bedding
The main purpose of our bedroom is for sleeping, so typically the feature point in any bedroom is the bed! Changing your bedding to a warmer, rich colour, such as red, maroon or brown will help to make it feel cosier, and the fabric you select for your bed covers will also have an impact – think linen bedding as opposed to thin cotton, or you could consider adding a thick velvet coverlet to instantly make your room both look and feel much cosier.
Changing your duvet from a summer duvet to a winter one will also make your bed feel much cosier, and will help you keep warm in the cold winter months! Winter duvets have a higher tog rating than summer ones, typically 12 and above – so you should look for this when you are shopping for a new duvet.
Adding more cushions to your bed will definitely improve the look and feel of your bed. Layered plush cushions will make your bed feel more comfortable and inviting, making the bed look like you could just sink into it – definitely cosy!
Add a throw or thick blanket
Fur or faux fur blankets are an instant way of making your bedroom feel cosier, or maybe you’d prefer a chunky knit blanket? Adding a thick blanket can help you to keep warm, and come in all sizes, styles and colours – so you’re bound to find the perfect one for you that will be both practical and stylish, and of course make your bedroom cosier!
Include low lighting
The type of lighting in your bedroom can dramatically change the feel of the room. In the majority of the rest of the house, we aim for a light and airy feel - whereas our bedrooms can benefit more from low, soft lighting. Bedside lamps with low-watt bulbs are perfect for this, and you can also buy bulbs with different tones, so choosing a bulb with a warm tone is the best way to make your bedroom lights look and feel cosy.
Have you thought about getting an electric blanket to make your bedroom feel cosier? Over the autumn and winter months when its chilly through the night, you don’t often want to leave the heating on overnight as it can be costly and make the room feel a little stuffy – so an electric blanket could be the perfect solution. Our Cozy Night Fleece Electric Blanket is made from a thick fleecy fabric and is luxuriously comfortable – and it fits securely to your bed with corner straps so it will stay in place all night. This blanket has three heat settings to choose from, so you can cater the blanket to suit you, and if you share a bed with your partner, double and larger size blankets have dual temperature control – meaning you can both select different temperatures to suit you separately.

For even more control over your electric blanket, our Homefront Premium Fully Fitted King Size Fleece Electric Blanket is perfect for making your bed toasty and as cosy as it possibly could be! These blankets have 9 body and 9 feet settings, meaning you are able to heat your feet and body separately or together, so you are sure to find a setting to suit you. If you share the bed with your partner you can use the dual controls so you can independently find the perfect settings for each of you. You can also set your blanket to turn off at any time through the night using the 10 timer settings – our controllers feature a clear LCD display which easily displays which settings you have selected. Did you know that electric blankets are really cheap to use too? Most of our blankets cost as little as just 2p per night to run! Much cheaper than leaving the heating running all night, with the added bonus of being able to heat up the bed in just the right spots!

Fairy lights are also a quick and easy way to make your bedroom feel cosier, and are fairly inexpensive too. Stringing up fairy lights around your headboard or even making a feature out of fairy lights and including your favourite photos in among the lights will make even the blandest room look and feel cosy!
Following on with the lighting theme, candles are a brilliant way to make your bedroom feel cosier. Scented candles with warm, wintery scents such as cinnamon, berry and festive spice not only make your room smell nice and festive, but the soft flickering glow will create a warm and cosy atmosphere. Make sure you don’t leave candles unsupervised, and don’t light candles close to soft furnishings such as curtains or drapes – as this will pose a major fire risk!
