Do you want to create a fabulous bedroom on a budget ? I love my bedroom to be a place that looks beautiful and meets all my practical needs too. I believe it is totally possible to create a bedroom you love on a budget.
Here are my top tips for creating a fabulous bedroom on a budget within a thrifty home.
I need to be able to have a great nights sleep and having the right bed is absolutely key to this. At the Divan Bed Centre you can find a range of beds that are cheap on price but not on quality. Delivery is also free and there is a really wide choice of no-frills good quality beds. You cut out the middleman by buying online too. Do have a peek. I think you will be amazed at the prices.
In order to sleep well, I need a bedroom to be really dark so blackout blinds are essential for me. I like to pair them with soft gauzy curtains over the top so |I can open the blinds as I please yt still have privacy. Getting a plain blind means I won’t need to change it up as I change my decor and this keeps costs down.
I also need to be warm to sleep well so a lovely throw ( Aldi have some beautiful and inexpensive throws this season) looks gorgeous on the bed and allows me to get snuggly.
Sure I would, if money were no budget, have a walk in wardrobe and store all many many clothes and shoes in there but I don’t! I still, however, want my bedroom to look calm and serene and to have my clothes really well organised. Slide out boxes for under the bed work really well for storing shoes and plastic low boxes with lids are an inexpensive option.
When it comes to wardrobes a simple Ikea style wardrobe that will not date tends to fit in seamlessly. You could also go the other extreme and pick up a retro piece at a flea market, house clearance or an auction and get a great quality bargain – totally depends on your style.
I like calm colours in a bedroom and avoid wallpaper where possible so I change the decor quickly and cheaply as required. We currently have a light powder blue paint on our walls but I am thinking pale grey next. I tend to got white duvets for this same reason..timeless and go with anything. A few cushions can add detail and texture but on pricier items, we stick to neutrals.
Inexpensive, classic bedside lights and tables are a must. I also always like to keep something living in the bedroom (a plant is cheaper than replacing fresh flowers.) A stack of your favourite books too can add individuality and colour. A room mist can also add a lovely delicate fragrance to a room and costs very little.
It is totally possible to have a fabulous bedroom on a budget. Invest in the essentials, keep them neutral, keep the room tidy and decluttered and you will have the sanctuary that you crave.
