Looking for ways to decorate your bedroom for a
discount? Trying to figure out what the
best discount furniture is? Below is a
guide to great cheap bedroom furniture.
Large floor pillows
Large floor pillows are great to use to accent your bedroom. They will cost you anywhere from $15 to $40
each, but they will go a long way to decorating your bedroom. Instead of buying the fancy leather bedroom
chair or sofa for $1000, go for 2 or 3 large floor pillows. You can put them strategically around the
room in different corners. Set them up in
the corner to convert that area to a reading area. Or, throw a few in one area of your room to
make it the place for you to relax.
Whatever your preference, large floor pillows are cheap and very
Simple floor length mirror
Instead of buying the gigantic mirror that reaches from head to toe and has
nice carvings on the edges, look for a simple floor length mirror that has a
stand in the back. Ikea and Target have
a few of these. This mirror will allow
the room to look bigger, give you a good place to look at your outfits, and
strategically placed, will give your bedroom some character.
Simple tables and magazine holder in place of a nightstand
At garage sales or in discount stores, look for simple tables that can be
converted to your nightstand. Instead of
going with one with a drawer use a more simple table with no drawers and add a
magazine rack or holder underneath for your books and magazines. The table is a great place for you to put
your jewelry and glasses at night as well as a lamp, but will save you money
since you won't be buying one with a drawer.
Sometimes, adding a drawer to that table will double the price of a
nightstand. A magazine rack underneath
is one fifth the cost of adding the drawer, if not less.
Futon and futon mattress
If you don't want to splurge on a bedroom set or even a bed with mattress, look
for a futon and futon mattress
futon is a great way for you to get a sofa and bed in one, especially if your
bedroom is used for multiple purposes. Futon mattresses
are still very comfortable, but will allow you to save
money on the box spring underneath.
Also, the futon frame can be chic, but versatile so you won't have to
buy a large bedroom set.
Enlarge pictures and buy your own frame
To decorate your bedroom, take photos of people
or places that you love and
enlarge them. At CostCo, a 12x18 or
11x14 enlargement of a photo is only $3.00.
Get your photos enlarged, buy a cheaper frame to put them in, and hang a
few up in your bedroom. This will add
color and personality to a simple bedroom.
A group of candles is a great way to decorate without splurging. Buy the candles from any store. Find a simple white plate to put them on, and
put 2-3 on a plate. This simple way to
decorate will spruce up any bedroom.
