Decorating Your Master Bedroom on a Budget

The tips and suggestions below are going to help you take the guesswork out of how to decorate your master bedroom, all without breaking the bank.

Decide how much you’d like to spend on your upscale.

Since we’re talking about decorating on a budget, it’s only right that we address this first and foremost. Before going into any decorating or upscaling project, it’s wise to figure out how much you want to invest on the project. It’s must easier to stay within budget when you know exactly how much you have to spend. So before purchasing anything, set aside the allotted amount to spend.

Brainstorm how you want your bedroom to look.

Do you want a more modern look or how about a retro feel? Are you looking to create a more comforting space or do something a little wild? Get an idea of the look you’re going for and jot it down. Use Pinterest, a Google search, or home decor magazines for inspiration and different style ideas.

Change the bedding.

One of the quickest ways to give your bedroom a new look is by changing the bedding. Go for a new sheet and comforter set, swap out the pillowcases, and consider adding an extra throw blanket or two. Many people use their beds as the focal point of the bedroom and the same can be said when it comes to redecorating this space. 

Add decor to the side tables and dresser.

Side tables aren’t only for collecting items like your glasses, cell phone, or the book you’re currently reading. Given enough space, you can add a small faux flower, real flowers that are low-maintenance (like a green vine), or a picture frame that showcases your favorite family snapshot. This isn’t a space you want to crowd with too much stuff, but it can be used to show a little of your style personality.

Add wall art.

Bedrooms are considered a place of rest so you may not want to put up wall art that activates the brain. Paintings and portraits that are calm in nature seem ideal for this space; however, you can choose whatever you like. Go big and bold or go small and strategically placed. Regardless, you can’t go wrong with adding wall art to your bedroom walls. If you’re looking to make a bold statement in your bedroom, you can use wall art to do just that.

Switch up the furniture in your bedroom.

Even if you have a large bedroom, you most likely don’t want to overcrowd it with furniture. Reconsider what you already have in your bedroom and decide to remove pieces or add them. In addition to your bed, other bedroom pieces that are ideal to have are nightstands, a dresser, a sitting chair, and a cushioned bench at the end of the bed. Each of these can be decorated as well.

The hardware on the dressers can be switched out, a blanket can be added to the sitting chair, and you can add cute trinkets on your dresser. Most of these things can be pulled from other rooms in your home so you don’t have to spend extra money.

Change the curtains and light fixtures.

Do you like to let a lot of natural light into your bedroom? If so, go for curtains or sheers that will take advantage of the sunny days. The type of light fixtures you have can also create more light. Use bright lampshades and a higher-watt light bulb to create more light. You can also add more light by adding extra lamps on the nightstands or a standing lamp in the corner of the room.

Final Thoughts

When decorating your master bedroom on a budget, it’s smart to shop your own home first to see what you can incorporate from other spaces. If you’re looking to purchase items, check with local thrift stores, antique shops, or yard sales. Bedrooms can be one of the easiest rooms to decorate on a budget.
