Chenille bedspreads are sort of like jawbreaker candies: either you love them or you’re really not into them. Those who love chenille bedspreads usually embrace them for the fact that they lend a cozy, old-timey, “antique,” and perhaps nostalgic aesthetic to any bedroom.
If you want to find a bedspread that’s similar to what your grandparents’ might have owned, then make sure you look for options made from high-quality materials such as 100% cotton. To narrow down your choices even more, think about your preferences when it comes to a bedspread’s design, color, weight, and so on. Then check out this list of some of the best chenille bedspreads around.

How We Picked
When we’re making roundups for sleep-related products, the challenge we usually face is that there’s an overwhelming number of options. (See: dog beds. Holy cow are there a lot of dog beds.) In this case, we had the opposite problem: It’s actually pretty hard to track down high-quality chenille bedspreads (especially ones that don’t cost an arm and a leg).
So we spent a while hunting for contenders, and then we vetted each one of them with the following criteria.
The look of a chenille bedspread creates a comfy, cozy aesthetic, and we think it’s important that its feel supports that. Nobody wants to be invited into a cozy-looking bed only to find that the blanket is actually stiff and scratchy! So we focused on options that are soft to the touch.
Comfort can also relate to temperature. You might prefer lying underneath a heavy blanket, or you might find that suffocating and prefer a lighter-weight blanket instead. We included bedspreads in different weights so there’s a comfortable option for everyone.
In our opinion, if you’re paying for a chenille bedspread, then you should be able to enjoy intricate designs all across its surface. We only included options that have paid attention to all the little details and maintain an attractive design across the surface of the bedspread.
Design can also refer to color options. While chenille bedspreads tend not to come in as many colors or patterns as other bed covers, you will find a range of solid colors on this list.
Again, our focus is all about quality. Most of the options on this list are made from 100% cotton. This helps ensure breathability and a soft feel, and it also maintains the “old-timey” aesthetic that a lot of people look for in a chenille bedspread.
Sleepopolis Buying Tips
Ready to find the best chenille bedspread for your bedroom? Take the following into account.
- What are your color preferences? As a general rule, chenille bedspreads don’t offer as much color diversity as duvet covers or other bed covers. So if you have strong preferences about color, that may be all you need to shrink your list of possible options.
- What’s your weight preference? Most chenille bedspreads are on the heavier side, but some are lighter weight. If you have a strong weight preference, this will also narrow down your choices.
- What are your design preferences? Some people like a wedding ring pattern, others love or hate fringe, and so on. Think about whether you want a particular design element on your bedspread, and that will eliminate a lot of options.
Chenille bedspreads tend to be on the pricier side, so it’s important that you hold out for a high-quality option to ensure you get your money’s worth. Think about your preferences when it comes to color, weight, and design, and you’ll be well on your way to finding a great upgrade for your bedroom.
