How to DIY a Big-Statement Luxury Bedroom on a Small Budget

You are the leader of your life! Does the most important space in your home reflect it? Treat yourself like the royalty you are and make any bedroom a luxurious one. Follow this step-by-step guide to make it happen without busting your budget.

Luxury Bedroom Ideas on a Budget

If you’re ready for a bedroom makeover but don’t have a lot of cash to spare, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to offer some luxury bedroom ideas that are not only accessible but affordable for any budget.

1. Change up your color scheme.

Giving your room a fresh coat of paint is a fantastic place to start when transforming your space into a luxurious oasis. A gallon of paint costs anywhere from $20 to $50, and switching up your color scheme can revamp your room’s aesthetic in a big way. Popular color palettes include warm neutrals (grays and greens), desert tones (blush and terra cotta), and accentuating metallics (rose gold and onyx black).

If these suggestions feel too bold for your taste, consider painting an accent wall rather than diving all the way in. In fact, a great way to play it safe while still adding a touch of elegance to your space is by opting for white walls with gold accents. This color combo can brighten up your room while still feeling super classy at the same time.

2. Make updates to your furniture.

Buying all new bedroom furniture can get expensive. Instead of busting your budget, consider updating the furniture you already have. For example, swapping the generic hardware on your dresser with aesthetic knobs and pulls could really elevate your space. Painting your poster bed to compliment your fresh color scheme might also take your bedroom to the next level. In short, seeking out small changes that can greatly impact the overall look and feel of your room can make all the difference.

3. Seek out affordable decor and furniture options.

Another inexpensive alternative to purchasing new furniture is to look into thrifting or upcycling. This might mean searching online marketplaces or buy-sell trade platforms with inexpensive, secondhand items.

Rent-A-Center also has many stylishly affordable options, and flexible payment plans to fit your small budget. From mattresses and bed frames to full bedroom sets, you can score some serious style points on your room’s design without completely breaking the bank.

4. Bring in accessories and statement pieces.

Once you’ve settled on your color palette and made upgrades to your furniture, the crowning jewel of your interior design will be accessories and statement pieces. Take the lead here, but some affordable ideas you might want to consider include:

  • Adding in texture with throw pillows, throws, and blankets
  • Styling your nightstand with decorative trays or candles
  • Expanding your small bedroom with a floor-length mirror or wall hanging (i.e., tapestries, vintage textiles, etc.)
  • Showcasing a central area rug to act as the focal point of your space
  • Supplementing the natural light in your bedroom with an interesting lamp or hanging fixture

Any investment you make toward these accessories and finishes can really help you round out your space. Statement pieces give your bedroom a more put-together feel and can make everything look especially luxurious.
