If you’re looking to give your bedroom a designer feel, then you may already be aware of the higher price tags often associated with designer and luxury furniture and decor. But, you don’t need to have a large budget when it comes to making your bedroom look more expensive and, with a few decor changes and style tips, you can make your bedroom look highly luxurious, all on a budget.
We’d all love a bedroom that comes straight from a Pinterest board, but if your budget doesn’t cooperate with the price, you shouldn’t give up on creating the bedroom you have always wanted. You can give your bedroom a touch of luxury style that looks expensive but, in fact, is budget-friendly with just a few simple changes.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some interior design tips to make your bedroom look more luxurious and expensive.
Get Rid Of The Clutter
If you want a great looking room, no matter what style or inspiration you are using, one of the first steps is to get rid of any lingering clutter. You can have the nicest bedroom in the world but, if it’s cluttered, then this will completely ruin the aesthetic.
Look at any spaces around your bedroom which naturally accumulate clutter or mess and target these first, then move around the rest of the bedroom, tackling drawers and wardrobes, under bed storage and shelving to cut down on clutter. It’s also important to pay attention to the floor of your bedroom. For example, if you find that dirty laundry accumulates in one spot, put a washing basket there instead.
Add Layers To Your Bed
Your bedding can completely transform the appearance of your bedroom and by investing in quality duvets and duvet cover sets, you can add immediate style and luxury to your bedroom. Think about luxury spas and hotels – they use good quality bedding that can make any bed feel like a soft, fluffy cloud. For further style, look to add additional layers, such as throw cushions and blankets.
Forget about cheap looking blankets, there are many different throws you can get that look expensive but work on a budget – think wool, velour, velvet or even silk blankets for a stylish addition and remember not to go overboard with colour or patterns. A simple block colour or subtle design is plenty!
For those colder winter months, thick fleece bedding and weighted blankets can create the ultimate winter cosy space, whilst in the summer, lighter tog duvets and linen bedding can make your bedroom feel lighter and cooler.
Change Your Light Fixtures
If you’ve transformed your bedroom decor, have plush comfy bedding and stylish furniture but still feel as though something is missing, then consider changing your light fixtures and shades. A lot of people don’t realise that these simple changes can completely change the style of your bedroom and are relatively inexpensive to do.
Instead of plain or old light shades, upgrade your light fixtures and fittings with stylish metal or rustic wicker light shades instead, with matching lamp shades to create a put-together look. If you can, consider changing your light switch plates, too as these can make a huge difference to the appearance of your bedroom.
