How to Decorate Your Bedroom on a Budget

If you’re looking for ways to make your bedroom chic and cozy, these tips were created just for you. The best part: Our budget-friendly ideas are designed to transform your bedroom into a sanctuary with minimal expense.

Step 1: Start With an Idea
Magazines, décor in your favorite TV shows, homes of friends and family members — inspiration is all around you. Collect photos, color swatches, and keepsakes to inspire and inform your new room.

Step 2: Paint
Paint can instantly transform your space with very little cost. Pastels, light earth tones, and muted hues evoke a relaxing, laid-back vibe and work perfectly in a bedroom.

Step 3: Rearrange
Moving around the bed, dresser, end tables, and accent chairs can freshen up your space. Try new configurations to see what feels the best. You can also switch out table lamps with other rooms to see how the lighting impacts the space.

Step 4: Update Bedding
A new bedspread, duvet cover, or quilt can add dimension to the room. Select a light color (white, yellow, blue) to offset a dark room. You can also add a throw blanket for additional color. Watch for white sales at department stores for deep discounts.

Step 5: Add Flair
Create visual excitement by grouping photos, artwork, or framed maps on the wall. Add thoughtful accessories to personalize the space. Hit up local thrift shops to find deals on interesting home décor.

Step 6: Add an Area Rug
Add color, texture, and warmth to the room with an area rug. Choose a color that complements the bedding or other items in the room. Place the rug at the foot of the bed.

Once you’ve finished, take a step back and enjoy your transformation. If you’re shopping for new bedroom furniture, remember that Rent-A-Center features big brands and small payments. For extreme makeovers without extreme prices, shop online or visit RAC today.
