10 Best Chenille Bedspreads


1. Better Trends Tufted Chenille Bedspread

You want your bedroom to look like a 5-star hotel room (maybe, even better) and this chenille bedspread from the Better Trends Ashton Collection does exactly that.

Firstly, the bedspread comes in about 10 excellent colors. These range from subtle ivory to popping burgundy so whatever your room decor demands, there’s one for everyone.

Furthermore, the plush tufted design makes the bedspread super cozy and soft (we bet, you’ll fall asleep the moment you’re under it).

And its king-size bedspread weighs a mere 2.75lbs which means it has just the right amount of thickness to be used all-year-round. Plus, it is easy to move around from room to room when needed.

Made out of 100% cotton, the bedspread has excellent breathability. This means it wicks away sweat quickly and does not smell even after weeks of use (no time to wash? No problem).

And when it does need washing, it’s effortless and takes about 10-15 minutes as the cotton makes it machine-washable and can also be tumble-dried. However, keep in mind that for the first 2-3 washes the bedspread does leave some lint.

Whether you have a king-size bed or a queen-size bed, this chenille bedspread comes in all sizes. Plus, you also get shams in every color and 3 sizes to complete the decor.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • It is machine-washable
  • Perfectly thick to be used throughout the year
  • 100% cotton for excellent breathability and durability
  • Weighs just 2.75lbs
  • Warm and cozy thanks to the plus tufted design
  • Available in multiple colors and sizes

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Leaves lint for the first few washes
  • It can only be tumble-dried or air-dried

2. Madison Park Reversible Chenille Bedspread

The Madison Part Chenille Bedspread is one of the easiest to maintain (yup, easier than the Better Trends as well). Why? Because unlike most, this can be reversed and used when needed.

And both sides are made of cotton so they have ample breathability to keep out moisture and remain fresh for a long time.

As for the washing, just like the Better Trends Bedspread, you can throw this into the washing machine for a quick and easy clean.

If you do maintain it well, the bedspread can easily last you for 4-5 years or more even if you happen to use it throughout the year (you want your money’s worth, the bedspread delivers just that).

This bedspread is also ideal for people prone to allergies since the filling inside it is hypoallergenic.

Furthermore, it is one of the few bedspreads to come with an OEKO-TEX certification which means no harmful chemicals or substances have been used in the manufacturing.

It is available in lighter shades like Taupe or white that go with most decors (especially if you love a shabby, chic decor). And yes you get matching shams as well. So unless you want a bright red or blue bedspread, this fits in just right.

Though this bedspread does cost more than some of the others on the list, it is definitely worth the few extra bucks if you want something durable and safe.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Lightweight and durable
  • Stuffing is hypoallergenic and thus safe for everyone
  • It comes with an OEKO-TEX certification
  • It can be reversed and used
  • Creates a Chic, shabby look
  • It can be used in every season
  • You get shams with the bedspread

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Lesser color and options provided
  • On the expensive side
  • Cannot be spin-dried

3. Beatrice Home Fashions Medallion Chenille Bedspread (Budget Pick)

Are you looking for the best chenille bedspread on a budget? What if we told you that you can have one for less than $70? And we are talking about a king-sized bedspread here.

While pocket-friendly, the Beatrice Chenille Bedspread meets all expected standards thus providing you excellent comfort and durability.

This mainly comes down to the cotton build that ensures you get a soft, warm feeling every time you jump into it on a cool, pleasant night.

And even though on the cheaper side, you have the ease of washing the bedspread in your washing machine (hassle-free cleaning, just the way you like it).

Are you the types that love an old-fashioned bedroom decor? Well, with medallions and swirls on the bedspread and fringes at the bottom, your bedroom will be screaming vintage all around.

This is another very lightweight bedspread. Yes, you will be compromising on thickness but if you live in a state with a moderate climate, it is just what the doctor ordered for as you don’t wake up drenched in sweat.

Also, while you do not get the Shams with the bedspread, you have the option of buying matching ones separately for about $20 as and when needed.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Most pocket-friendly bedspread
  • 100% Cotton thus lightweight and durable
  • Creates a sophisticated, vintage design
  • Machine-washable

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • No shams with the bedspread
  • Leaves a lot of lint
  • Not suitable for use in extreme winters

4. BrylaneHome Chenille Bedspread

Another great pick for budget buyers, the BrylaneHome Chenille Bedspread also costs less than $70. But does it compromise on quality or comfort? Let’s find out.

In simple words, no. Just like our top picks, this one too is made using cotton alone. So while you get exceptional comfort and softness, you also get durability like no other material can provide.

You also do not want the hassle of having to handwash the bedspread and thankfully, you won’t have to. Unlike most cheaper bedspreads, this one remains machine-washable.

The one big advantage of going with the BrylaneHome bedspread over the Beatrice bedspread is the color variation. If you like bold and bright, there’s burgundy and antique blue while the eggshell is ideal for a contemporary look.

On the downsides, the bedspread lacks thickness like the Better Trends. Though this makes it extremely light, when it gets colder, you’ll need something for additional warmth.

You also do not get any shams with it but the bedspread is long enough to cover the entire bed and the pillows considering you do not plan to keep the pillows over the bedspread.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • It costs less than $70
  • Lightweight at about 2.5lbs
  • Wide range of colors available
  • Machine-washable

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Shams need to be purchased separately
  • Lint is a serious problem
  • Too thin for use in winters
  • Twin size not available

5. Plow & Hearth Tufted Chenille Bedspread

If you wanted to go vintage but with a dash of eye-popping color and design, then Plow & Hearth Chenille Bedspread is just the bedspread you need.

That is because unlike the Beatrice bedspread, this bedspread offers you a traditional wedding ring pattern and fringes at the bottom on bright colors like Red, Blue, and my personal favorite, Eggplant.

But if you like white, don’t worry, there’s an option for that as well.

However, it’s not just the colors and fringes that give the bedspread its royal vintage look and feel, there’s also the 100% cotton build that keeps it soft and comfortable.

Plus, it has got ample stuffing to feel plush and keep you warm and cozy when temperatures start to dip. Though remember, more thickness means more weight.

As you already know by now, cotton bedspreads can be machine-washed making an otherwise tedious task super easy. But like all good things, this one has its cons as well.

And one of the biggest cons here is that it doesn’t come with matching shams. And considering it costs over $100, that is disappointing.

Also, since there are no size variations provided, you can only purchase a king size.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Machine-washable
  • Fringes and wedding ring pattern create a vintage look
  • Thick enough for use in cool weather
  • Comes in eye-catching, bright colors

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • No matching shame provided
  • It costs over $100
  • Only king-size available

6. Comfort Spaces Phillips Face Jacquard Tufted Chenille

Comfort Spaces lives up to its name by providing a chenille bedspread that creates a comfortable space for a cozy nightlong sleep.

How does it do it?

Well, firstly, with stuffing that is neither too much to suffocate you in summers nor so little that you shiver in winters (you can use this baby any time of the year).

Secondly, it is soft since it is 100% cotton.

Lastly, both the inside and the outside material are hypoallergenic which means even if you are a person that catches allergies quickly, you have nothing to worry about.

Also, if you have guests coming over and happen to spill some food or coffee on the bedspread you do not have to spend time cleaning it. Just reverse it and voila, you are good to go.

And when it comes to cleaning, a machine-wash followed by a tumble dry on low heat is all that is needed. And unlike cheaper bedspreads, this one produces minimal lint and need not be washed 4-5 times before using.

Another thing we love about this bedspread is its minimalist design and color.

With a simple dotted design and light colors, it uplifts the decor of the room in the right amounts and won’t overpower any of the other accessories. Plus, it blends with any kind of wall paint, flooring, etc.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • It is machine-washable
  • Perfectly thick to be used throughout the year
  • 100% cotton for excellent breathability and durability
  • Weighs just 2.75lbs
  • Warm and cozy thanks to the plus tufted design
  • Available in multiple colors and sizes

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Leaves lint for the first few washes
  • It can only be tumble-dried or air-dried

7. Urban Habitat Brooklyn Chenille Bedspread

If pink is your favorite color and minimalist if your favorite design, then this chenille bedspread is definitely worth the consideration.

This is another dotted tufted chenille bedspread that might appeal to most women and also makes a great choice for the kids’ room since the lighter color tone means it will blend perfectly with all the other vibrant colors

Another unique thing about this bedspread is that it comes it is a 5 piece comforter set. Yup, you don’t just get a bedspread and a couple of shams but also 2 decorative pillow covers and 1 Euro Sham.

So if any room in the house has a lot of shams or pillows, this comforter set is a no-brainer.

But if you still have doubts, Urban Habitat offers you something not even the top brands do, a trial. That means if you’re not satisfied with the bedspread after 30-days of usage, you can have all your money back (no questions asked).

As for the build, this is also made using cotton and thus comes with all benefits like good durability and breathability. Plus, it is machine-washable. 

Another reason why this is ideal for the kids’ room is that it comes with an OEKO-TEX certification. A stamp of approval which means no harmful chemical has been used in manufacturing.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Machine-washable
  • It an OEKO-TEX certified bedspread
  • Get a 30-trial period
  • It is a 5-piece comforter set
  • Ideal set for the kid’s room

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Comes in only pink color
  • Limited sizes available
  • You’ll find a lot of lint in the washer

8. Better Trends Rio Collection

If you haven’t already figured out, Better Trends is one of the most popular brands when it comes to bedspreads and their Rio Collections is another example of why.

Just like the above-mentioned Better Trends Chenille Bedspreads, this collection too has plenty of colors and sizes to choose from.

This also is a 100% cotton bedspread with benefits like being machine-washable and a soft bedspread that has good durability and thus won’t tear or wither within the first few washes?

So what’s different?

One of the biggest differences in the tufted design. The Ashton collection has a beveled design whereas this collection features an heirloom quality floral design.

This is also cheaper but that low cost comes with certain sacrifices. For example, most users complain that it is too thin and transparent (feels almost like a thicker bedsheet).

Also, it leaves behind more lint that the Ashton Collection which could be down to its design.

But if you want a floral design with lots of color and size options to choose on the cheap and do not want shams, it makes a good buy.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • 100% cotton
  • A wide array of colors and sizes to pick from
  • Machine-washable
  • Decent durability
  • Costs lesser than Better Trends Ashton Collection

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • There’s a lot of lint left behind
  • Too thin and is slightly transparent
  • No shams included in the purchase

9. Stylemaster Diamond Tufted Chenille Bedspread

Need a bedspread for the guest room? Something that can be folded and stored away when not in use? Sounds just like the Stylemaster Diamond Chenille Bedspread.

This is another very light bedspread. Yes, it lacks thickness for colder temperatures but if you want something to keep you warm in AC or moderate climate, this should serve you well enough.

Though inexpensive, you get a good quality bedspread. It’s 100% cotton and can be put into the washing for easy cleaning.

From King-size, Queen-size to twin-size or full, whatever your bed size, the Stylemaster is long enough to cover the pillows and yet touch the floors so you do not have to speed on bed skirts.

As for colors, the subtle ivory, or white color in tandem with the simple design means it goes well in bedrooms with wooden flooring

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Folds just like a bedsheet and thus easy to store
  • Ultralight as well
  • Perfect bedspread for the guest room
  • Costs less than $75
  • Machine-washable
  • All sizes available

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Won’t keep you warm when the temperature falls
  • It is transparent
  • The design may be too simple for some
  • You will have to pay extra for shams
  • Lack of color options

10. Carol Wright Gifts 100% Cotton Chenille Bedspread

Last but not least on our list of the best chenille bedspreads in the Carol Wright Gifts Bedspread and if you are a fan of embroidery, this is tailor-made for you.

It is 100% cotton and thick enough to be used in almost any season and will easily last you for 5-6 years. But personally, not a huge fan of the embroidery.

Yes, it looks good but it also makes it one of the heaviest bedspreads on the list thus moving it can be tough and is a big no for the kid’s room.

Also, the intricate embroidery means the bedspread cannot be machine-washed and will have to be spot cleaned (yup, this one’s a high-maintenance bedspread).

Furthermore, the embroidery can make it difficult to sleep under as some users might find it irritating every time it brushes against your skin.

Also, it is thicker than most bedspreads which means it isn’t suitable for hotter conditions but if you live in a cold climate, this works in your favor as it will keep you warm.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Very durable, will last for 5-6 years or more
  • Comes with a 100% money-back guarantee
  • Made with 100% cotton
  • An ideal pick for anyone that love embroidered bedspreads

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • The heaviest bedspread on the list
  • Not machine-washable
  • Embroidery makes with difficult to sleep in
  • Some users find it too thick

Best Chenille Bedspreads Buying Guide

When you are looking for Chenille bedspreads, you must look for certain attributes to ensure that they last you long and are comfortable. Wondering what these are? Here’s a detailed buyer’s guide.

Weight

When it comes to Chenille bedspreads, the golden rule is that the denser the design, the heavier the bedspread will be. Keep this in mind while browsing through their extensive collection.

If you plan to use the bedspread yearlong, it is recommended that you purchase a lightweight one. Remember, Chenille bedspreads tend to be heavier and warmer so choose your bedspread accordingly.

Bedroom Decor

Believe it or not, a bedspread can serve as an important home decor item. While purchasing your Chenille bedspread, make sure that you choose one that goes with the color scheme of your bedroom.

If your bedroom has light-colored walls, you can choose a colorful bedspread. On the other hand, if your bedroom walls are bright or textured, you can go for a simple bedspread that complements the color scheme.

Washing and Drying

If you are purchasing your Chenille bedspread to use it daily, there are a few things you should consider. First of all, make sure that the bedspread can be washed at home.

If you purchase one that needs to be dry cleaned, it could prove to be an expensive affair in the long run. Similarly, natural fibers tend to last longer than synthetic fibers so your best bet is to get one that is 100% cotton.

Size of the Bed

Chenille bedspreads come in a variety of sizes and tend to change with different manufactures. Therefore, it is always a good idea to measure your mattress and pillow before making a purchase. This will ensure that they fit perfectly.

Materials Used

Chenille bedspreads are 100% cotton, making them extremely comfortable and durable. Another benefit that comes with cotton bedspreads is that they are machine-washable and can also be tumble-dried which makes cleaning them easier than bedspreads that need to be spot-cleaned. They are also cheaper.

Another material that is used to make bedspreads is Silk. Though it isn’t as popular since silk bedspreads can be expensive and not everyone finds them comfortable.

Benefits of Using a Chenille Bedspread

Are chenille bedspreads worth spending on? If that is a question you have been pondering, here are some benefits you probably didn’t know about.

Improve the bedroom’s decor

In addition to the lovely colors and designs that these bedspreads come in, another factor that adds to its visual appeal is its unique texture. This texture never fails to add character to your room. Whether you like contemporary designs, vintage designs, simplistic ones such as dots, there’s a texture for all preferences.

Eliminates the need for accessories

Chenille bedspreads look the best while they extend till the foot of the bed. This means that one can forego additional accessories such as beds-skirts or shams. But if you do not like keeping your pillows under the bedspreads, no problem, most bedspreads come with a couple of sham covers while some might even have pillow covers and so on.

Creates a vintage look

Do you have fond memories of cozying up on your grandparent’s bed under a thicker-looking bedsheet? That’s got to be a chenille bedspread. And while they lost a bit of popularity in the past, they seem to be trending once again as more people look to go vintage with their home decor with a touch of modernity in the form of newer, bolder colors, patterns, etc. Not to forget, the nostalgia that comes with them as well.

It is cozy

Who doesn’t love a cozy and inviting bed, right? And that is just what chenille bedspreads create with their plush tufting and super soft build. The best ones feel something like laying under a blanket of clouds. Apart from comfort, the plush tufting also gives it a good amount of thickness that keeps you, your kids, etc. warm when needed.
