7 Cozy Bedroom Additions You Need This Fall

Chilly nights are here to stay, and it’s the perfect time to transform your bedroom into a cozy retreat! With a few simple items you can easily thrift at Goodwill, you’ll have a space that makes you feel snug and relaxed, even when winter creeps in.

Check out these seven thrifty ideas for making your bedroom feel warm and inviting this fall:

#1: Warm Bedding

Cool and breezy sheets are great for summer, but for fall, you’ll want something more substantial for those colder nights. Replace your summer sheets with flannel or fleece sheets, and add a thicker duvet or comforter. Choose fall-inspired colors like deep reds, earthy browns, or warm oranges.

#2: Throw Blankets

Throw blankets not only add an eye-pleasing layered look to your bedroom décor, but they’re also functional. Throw blankets are great to have around for cool afternoons reading in your favorite chair or for curling up to watch a spooky movie. Fold your comfy throws over the foot of your bed or drape one over a chair.

#3: Textured Pillows

It’s the season to swap out your summer pillows for ones with fall-themed covers. Earthy tones, plaids, and rich textures work well and contribute to a warm and cozy feel. With our ever-changing selection of home goods, you may be able to find a few at your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill thrift store! Or, if you know how to sew, look for fabric you can use to create your own pillow covers.

#4: Fall Candles

Earthy-scented candles create a nice ambiance and add warm light to bedrooms. You’ll feel relaxed in no time! Just remember to practice candle safety. You could also opt for battery-operated candles as another option to give your room the same vibe. 

#5: Fairy Lights

Hang some fairy lights or string lights around your room for a warm, gentle glow. These can be placed on the headboard, hung above the curtains, or even inserted into glass jars if battery-operated.

#6: Vintage Books

Adding a small bookshelf or a stack of your favorite books by your bedside can make your room feel oh-so comfortable and cozy. Even if you’re not a reader, you can still choose beautiful vintage hardbacks at your nearest Goodwill thrift store to display in your room and create the right look. The warm tones and textures are sure to add enchanting visual interest to any room.

#7: Soft Curtains

Swap out lightweight summer curtains for heavier, insulating curtains in a fall color or pattern. This simple change will not only help to keep the chill out from the windows but will also add a sense of depth to your bedroom.
