Bedroom Decorating Tips On a Budget

Every homeowner would like to decorate his or her bedroom like a professional, but not everyone has the budget to do so. However, here are a few tips on how to transform your “everyday” bedroom into a luxurious getaway you deserve, without breaking the bank to do so.

New Bedding

Even if you don’t do anything else, new bedding can help make your bedroom look brand new. Go for something completely opposite of what you’re using now. If you have a solid colored comforter, try a bold pattern and vice versa. If you don’t want to buy all new bedding, try just getting new throw pillows. Though it may be a small touch, a room is not complete without adding throw pillows. Adding a lot of throw pillows on your bed can make it look more visually interesting and show off your personal décor taste. They come in all different sizes, colors and styles- which makes them so great to mix and match. It’s also so easy to switch up your design by replacing them every so often.

Hanging Light Fixtures

Adding some new lighting to your bedroom will quickly change its appearance. A hanging light fixture like a chandelier will make your bedroom look more luxurious. If you’re able, you should put in a dimmer so you can control how bright your room gets. No one wants boring florescent lighting that will make your room look too harsh.


Any form of greenery will turn your room from bland to beautiful. Plants add the perfect pop of color and are good forms of an air filtration system. If you choose any with a scent then you’ll have your room smelling just as good as it looks!

DIY Projects

“Do it yourself” projects are a great way to save some money but still get the same outcome you desire. You can buy less expensive furniture from places like Ikea and spruce them up to make them look exactly like you want and more high end.

Statement Pieces

Focus on a statement piece in your bedroom. Try not to clutter your room so these pieces can stand out and become the focus. Whether it’s a bedframe, dresser or an arm chair-make sure your bedroom has its own centerpiece.

Arcadia Run offers floor plans with either one or two bedroom apartment homes. These tips and tricks can help you create your dream bedroom at Arcadia Run without spending an arm and a leg!
