18 Tips to Create a Cozy Bedroom on a Budget
Although it may seem like a lot of work to create an affordable bedroom on a budget, a few simple upgrades will do the trick! You can make your room a cozy haven with these frugal bedroom decorating ideas:
1. Start with where you sleep.
The common misconception is that you have to dish out obscene amounts of money to get a good night’s sleep, but that’s just not the case. Mattresses don’t have to be expensive in order to be high quality, for example, the PerfectSense 10” Memory Foam Mattress starts at only $249.99. It won’t break the bank, it’ll last a long time, and it comes in a box, making it a hassle-free addition to your affordable bedroom.
2. Bring it together with a rug.
Along with being an accent piece, a rug will effortlessly pull your whole space together. Find one with the right dimensions and see just how quickly it’ll impact the overall feel of your room. Your bare feet will thank you!
3. Go green.
Plants are easy to maintain and super budget friendly. If you don’t trust yourself with them, go faux! The look and feel will be nearly identical without the stress of keeping them alive.
4. Light it up.
Lighting is the next essential for your bedroom makeover on a budget. A pretty lamp or some indoor string lights will brighten up your space and set the mood for your room.
5. It’s the little things.
One of the best inexpensive bedroom decorating ideas is to strip down your space to a few stand out pieces. They can be anything from a unique design on a pillowcase, to an eccentric thrift store mirror. The key is to keep it simple!
6. Update your sheets.
The next time you’re about to throw your sheets in the laundry, consider if it might be time to retire them all together. Update your sheets and make crawling into bed after a long day that much more satisfying.
7. Get creative with storage.
A quick scroll through Pinterest will show you just how many creative ways you can store your stuff. You can hide clothes in a multi-purpose trunk, fill your shelves with cute baskets to help you stay organized and even use your wall as a place to hang your jewelry.
Use feng shui to achieve new levels of comfort in your bedroom. The best part? It won’t cost you anything other than a bit of time (and maybe sweat)!
9. Play with colours.
A lot of affordable bedroom designs will use colours to add a pop of personality to a room. Use the colour wheel to create consistency in your decor with complementary hues or step outside the standards to make a statement!
10. Get yourself a place to sit.
Having a place to sit other than your bed will help you be more productive and will allow your room to be so much more than just a place to sleep. Find a chair that’s been thrifted or add a bench to the foot of your bed and outfit it with comfortable pillows and blankets.
11. Look again.
Looking at your space with fresh eyes can lead to discovering new and better arrangements you may have never before considered. It can also make you more intentional about where you’re placing your stuff and reveal if there are items whose shelf life have expired.
12. Get crafty with your walls.
13. Consider a headboard.
Whether it’s one you buy or make, a headboard is a great addition to your affordable bedroom. A headboard can make any bed look glamorous and sleek!
14. Dress up the windows.
Curtains are simple but effective! Use them to compliment your windows and add a touch of flare to your view.
15. Don’t worry too much about matching.
Another great tip for creating a cozy bedroom makeover on a budget is to shop sale items. Even if that means having a few mismatched pieces, it’ll be worth the money you save! Plus, a golden rule in decorating is that things don’t always have to match in order to co-ordinate!
16. DIY instead of buying.
Don’t be afraid to do things yourself. Many DIY bedroom decor ideas have extensive online
tutorials that will help you get the job done.
17. Get another mirror.
It’s true that having more mirrors will make your room look bigger. Use them in fun places like behind your dresser or hanging on your door to create a more spacious look in your bedroom.
18. Wallpaper doesn’t have to be permanent.
Lastly, if you’re looking to spruce up your walls but you’re worried about committing to a
permanent design, look into removable wallpaper (a favourite for affordable bedroom designs). There are many different styles of peel and stick wallpaper making it easy to choose one that fits perfectly with your theme.
With these helpful tips, you’ll be sure to have a completely cozy bedroom without breaking the bank.
