If you want to change up the look of your bedroom, a new comforter set is one way to do it. Why take out a second mortgage for a new bed when a comforter set will get the job done? But even a comforter set will cost you a good chunk of change, especially if you have a king-sized bed. Or will it? In fact, for less than $50, you can get your hands on some high-quality king size comforter sets. Here, we’ll look at the ten best options in this price range. At this price, you can redecorate your bedroom by scrounging up change from your couch. Let’s get started!
The AmazonBasics 3-Piece Ultra-Soft Micromink King Comforter Set has a classic, box-stitched appearance. Not only is this look as retro as it gets, it’s also functional; the stitching prevents the filling from shifting around during use. The “micromink” is actually polyester, with a smooth outer finish that’s attractive to the eye. The inner surface is a soft fleece, softer and more comfortable on most comforters. The filling is thick and cushy, and made of faux-down polyester. It’s warm enough for winter use, although it’s still lightweight enough for warmer weather. And with 9 color options, you can match any furniture.
The Chezmoi 3-Piece Hypoallergenic Down Comforter Set is a laid-back, traditional comforter. It has a box stitched pattern, with a glossy shell that really catches the eye. It has a polyester shell, along with a hypoallergenic polyester filler that provides plenty of bulk and warmth. Even so, it’s lightweight enough for warm-weather use. Along with the comforter itself, you also get a pair of matching pillow shams that are 2 inches thick for plenty of added fluff. The set is available in 12 colors to match any décor scheme. And everything is machine washable. It’s even small enough that you can fit it in a large home washing machine.
For a more lightweight option, the HIG 3-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set is a solid choice. It’s more of a duvet than a comforter, although it’s perfectly suitable for moderate to warm temperatures. You also get a pair of matching shams, with a flat look and a medium-thickness fringe. Like the Chezmoi comforter we just looked at, the HIG comforter has a box-stitched design. This stitching goes all the way out to the edge of the comforter, without any added fringe. You can choose between
If you’re looking for a patterned comforter, consider the Utopia Bedding 3-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set. It has an attractive, curved diamond pattern, available in either white on blue or white on grey. It also has box stitching, although the stitching is nearly invisible due to the color pattern. The construction is 100 percent polyester, with a soft, comfortable shell that’s comfortable on your skin. The filling is also polyester, although it’s nice and fluffy. The matching pillow shams are relatively lightweight, with a narrow fringe. Not only that, but the set is machine washable for easy maintenance.
Unlike the previous comforters we’ve looked at, the Bedsure 3-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set has a floral pattern. The background color is a light grey, with white and yellow flowers on slender vines. The reverse side is a solid ivory, while the pillow shams match the floral side of the comforter. The stitching is minimal, with dimples spread out in a square pattern. The material itself is 100 percent polyester microfiber. This gives the finish a soft feel, without the cost of other, more expensive materials. The Bedsure comforter is thick and cozy, but it’s still lightweight enough to function as a year-round cover.
The Downluxe 3-Piece Lightweight Solid King Comforter Set is a more medium-duty option that’s suitable for year-round use. It comes in 16 different colors, with a diamond stitching pattern to keep the filling in place. All color options are reversible, with different colors on each side. So you can change up your look just by flipping over your comforter. The material is brushed microfiber, comfortable enough to rest against your skin. The filling is relatively loose, but the comforter is nice and thick, so it’s both cushy and breathable. You also get a pair of extra-wide 36-inch shams that will cover the width of your king size bed.
Southshore Fine Living, Inc.
Like the Sweet Home set, the Southshore Fine 3-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set has a plaid shell. However, the plaid is a bit busier, with a tighter pattern and more variation. It’s available in nine patterns. Some are the aforementioned plaid, while others are a busy floral pattern that will add a touch of life to your bedroom. The shell is 100 percent microfiber, with a soft finish that’s very cozy. The filling is also polyester, and it’s fairly dense. That said, the comforter is relatively thin. It’s better suited as a duvet or three-season comforter than it is for heavy-duty winter use. And added to that, you get a pair of matching pillow shams.
Sweet Home Collection
The Sweet Home 4-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set comes with a large-grid plaid finish, available in five different color patterns. It has a double-brushed microfiber shell that’s soft and comfortable. You can snuggle up under this blanket and pull it up under your chin without any slick feeling. The filling is relatively dense, although the comforter itself is on the thinner side. Along with the comforter, you get a pair of shams, as well as a ribbed throw pillow. This added pillow is an extra value that you won’t find in most affordable comforter sets. And the entire set is machine washable, so you don’t have to take it to the dry cleaner’s.
The Basic Beyond 3-Piece Down Alternative King Comforter Set sports a diamond-stitched pattern that lends it a classic appearance. It’s available in 13 colors, all of which are reversible. Most of the colors are flat, but a few of them are patterned. These are ideal if you prefer to conceal the stitching. Along with the comforter itself, you get a pair of pillow shams. The shams are relatively narrow, only 26 inches in width, so they’re ideal if you have a headboard that you want to show off. Best of all, Basic Beyond offers a 30-day no-questions-asked refund period. As a result, you can try out their comforter without any risk.
If you want a more colorful, playful comforter set, check out the Uozzi Bedding Colorful Dots Comforter Set. It comes in six light patterns, all of which have a unique feel. The material is 100 percent microfiber, both the shell and the filling. It’s both thick and breathable, suitable for four-season use. One thing we appreciated about the Uozzi comforter is that it has four corner loops. These loops are perfect for securing a duvet cover, so you can change up your bed’s appearance in just a few minutes. The comforter and pillow shams are all machine washable, which makes cleaning quick and painless.
Clearly, there’s a wide variety of king size comforter sets available at a reasonable price. If you’re trying to spruce up your bedroom on a budget, you have plenty of options. You can go with a classic, plain, old-school look. Or you can go with a busier, more detailed pattern that jumps out at you. In addition to color and appearance, you can also choose different thicknesses. Do you want a thin, lightweight comforter for warm weather or duvet use? Or do you want a heavy comforter to keep cozy on those chilly nights? Either way, you’ve got several affordable choices.
