5 must-have items for an autumn bedroom makeover

With the autumn season upon us, now’s the perfect time to transform your bedroom into a cosy, welcoming space to relax and unwind. 
From textured soft furnishings to smart storage solutions for your seasonal wardrobe, here are five of our top homeware and furniture picks for an autumnal makeover.
1)    Accent cushions

As the nights get longer and darker, a comfy, well-presented bed can be irresistible. Having a variety of cushions in contrasting patterns and prints is a great way to add a pop of colour and style to your bedroom décor scheme. Try mixing different textures too, from soft cashmere to smooth velvet, with pom-pom detailing and fringe, to create a snug, inviting bed you’ll want to jump into at the end of the day. 
The nature-inspired designs in The Chateau By Angel Strawbridge cushion collection and the floral William Morris designs are perfect for an autumnal bedspread. 

2)    Blankets and throws

To help stave off the chill, having thick throws and blankets are a must. Whether folded over the end of your bed or draped on the back of a chair, having something soft to snuggle-up in can bring much-needed comfort in the autumn months.

At Aldiss, our selection of throws, blankets and bedspreads come in a range of materials, including fleece, cashmere and cotton, as well as sherpa-lined styles and textured designs with decorative edges that make wonderful accent pieces.


3)    A soft rug 

There's nothing quite like the feeling of a luxurious rug beneath your feet on a cold day. Try placing a runner at the side of your bed to step onto when you wake up in the morning, or a large rectangle rug to frame the end of the bed. 

Our collection of high-quality rugs includes an array of styles and shapes, from the shaggy, thick-pile Twilight collection to the patterned Da Vinci designs that are guaranteed to make a style statement in your bedroom.


4)    Ambient table lamps 

Getting stuck into a good book is the ultimate cold-weather activity – and where better to enjoy your latest read than in the comfort of your bed? A table lamp is not only essential for practical reasons, but it can also add depth and warmth to the room. 

We stock a variety of stylish and practical bedroom lighting at Aldiss, including both antique-style and contemporary table lamps. Our selection of charming fairy lights can also help to create a cosy ambience. 


5)    Wiemann wardrobe storage 

Autumn outfits are all about thick, cosy jumpers, chunky knitwear, hats and scarves. However, these bulky items take up more space than summer clothing, which is why it’s important to make sure you have plenty of storage.

The sleek and stylish Wiemann fitted wardrobes and bedroom units come in wood, semi-wood, glass and mirrored finishes, with space-saving features that will help to keep your room clutter-free.
Matching beds, chests of drawers and bedside cabinets are also available to help you create a stylish, put-together bedroom.
