How To Upgrade Your Bedroom On A Budget

The bedroom is your escape after a hard day's work. So it’s worth putting in the effort to make your bedroom a welcoming, cozy haven. But, nothing kills your makeover plans faster than the word “budget”.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to update your bedroom on a budget without sacrificing style. We’ve put together a few simple ideas below that will help create your dream bedroom, without breaking the bank!

Bed Frames

A bed purchase should be an investment that lasts you for years to come. It's the single most important piece of furniture in your room. BUT that doesn't mean you have to spend an arm and a leg for a great looking quality bed! Word of advice: get a platform bed. They don't require box springs, so all you need is a mattress!

Headboards

Not looking to change your whole bed frame? No worries! Save money by changing the look of your bed with a simple headboard swap.

Mattresses

Buying mattresses online can be tricky and quite risky. That's why we've done the research for you and partnered with Endy Sleep, a Canadian manufacturer of quality mattresses that are shipped to your door for free. They offer a 100 night trial, so if you don't absolutely love your mattress, you can send it back for free (no risk)! Best of all, there's a 10 year warranty, so you can rest assured that you're have a great sleep for at least the next decade to come!


Nightstands

 

Opt for more affordable nightstands, as these pieces can be changed and updated over time. Small accent tables such as Candace & Basil’s snack tables from $49 are a great cheap alternative to the traditional and expensive bedside tables. All you really need is a small and stylish table around the same height of your bed to hold your phone and maybe a small table lamp.

Bedding, Blankets & Pillows

There's a lot of affordable bedding options available online but finding the best fit for your room will come down to your existing décor. The best part about bedding and linens is that you can use them to easily change the whole look of your room as frequently as you want! We recommend having a set of 3 to 4 duvet covers and shams so you can have a fresh new look every season. For a budget-friendly seasonal change, consider using throw blankets and accent cushions. A well-made bed with throw pillows can serve as art in any room, so if you need a statement piece, it's an easy way to add colours and patterns instantly.

Bedroom Accents

With minimal expense, you can purchase accents that accentuate your bedroom.  From a sleek bench with a storage feature for your spare linens, to a modern vanity set, you can add beautiful décor that's also functional. If you have room to spare, use a fabric accent chair by your bed to complete the look.
