5 Ways You Can Bring Luxury to the Bedroom on a Budget

luxury bedroom

Let’s face it: you’ve spent way too long in lockdown scrolling through Vogue Interior and now you’ve decided that you want to give your bedroom a luxurious renovation, without the luxurious price tag. But how can you glam up your room on a budget?

There are a few ways that you can add a little luxury without actually forking out and spending a fortune. Here are five examples of how you can transform your bedroom under a normal budget:

Statement Pieces

Some statement pieces of furniture can cost an absolute fortune. Do you remember when Joey in Friends purchased that big white dog for his new apartment? Yeah, that.
However, one way that you can add that statement feel to your bedroom without breaking the bank is by adding a headboard. These scream luxury and are a cheaper addition than purchasing a whole new bed.

Hanging Lights

You don’t need to invest in a gold chandelier to make your room look fancy, but hanging lights of any sort definitely do the job.
Places such as IKEA and The Range sell a great variety of light shades and hanging lights for a small price, so it’s worth checking out high street stores.
Also, places such as Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace will do the job, you can get loads of bargains on there!

A Comfortable Bed

You can normally tell if a bed is comfortable just by looking at it. The way the mattress looks like something you could just sink into. To get the look, you want a mattress that holds its shape, something that doesn’t seem to mold to your sleeping position. Memory-foam mattresses are a good one as they always return back to their original shape.
Pillows should always be fully stuffed, not half-full (or half-empty if you’re that kind of person) and there should be plenty of them on your bed to make it look a little more comfortable and elegant.

Get Rid of Clutter

I’m not going to go all Marie Kondo on you and suggest that you get rid of everything that doesn’t make you happy (yes, you really do need to keep the laundry basket, soz). That being said, I am going to suggest that you start clearing out your clutter.
Get rid of all of the clothes you have that you’ve not been able to squeeze into for the past few years. There’s no point holding onto things like this, and your wardrobe will appreciate the breathing space. You’ll love how pristine your room looks without them, too.

Eccentric Curtains

You want to let in as much light as possible. Of course, a bright room is a happy room.
Curtains frame windows beautifully, letting all that light in during the day and giving you privacy at night. If you’re making the purchase for luxury curtains then get some long, gracious curtains that sweep across the floor. These are a staple to any bedroom looking to add a touch of elegance.
