5 Ideas for Creating a Bedroom Retreat on a Budget

As days get shorter, you may be spending more time in your bedroom. This season you can create a relaxing bedroom retreat without breaking a bank.

1. Paint the walls

Painting is always the first suggestion for a room redo. Affordable and DIY-friendly, a fresh coat of paint on the walls will dramatically change the room for the better.

If you’re going for a relaxing look, most designers suggest gray paint. The neutral color works with several other colors, and is a trendy shade for this season. Warm gray is an easy choice because it goes with almost as many things as white but looks so much more sophisticated and finished.

2. Update the bed coverings

You spend a good amount of your 24-hour day in bed, so spend your budget where it matters. Buy a beautiful set of sheets and piling blankets up to create plump bed. Even a simple swap to a new, affordable duvet cover can make over the entire room.

3. Add pizzazz to furniture

Paint the walls and the furniture. If you want to start small, simply paint the interior of a bookcase, the trim on a cabinet or the legs of a chair.

4. Change lighting

Whether its two new bedside lamps or a larger statement lamp, lights can makes a huge difference in a space, and is often pieces you can find secondhand. Changing out the main light fixture is great return on investment.

5. Layer rugs

Rugs can be a huge investment, especially a large area rug. But rather than break the bank on one big one, buy different sized ones. Layering and staggering at the sides of your bed can give you an expensive look for a lot less. A high-end wool rug may look the most luxe but a simple jute rug is affordable and just as comfortable.
