Decorating on a Budget: Bedrooms

Decorating on a budget continues and today's feature is the bedroom. See below how to furnish and style a bedroom from start to finish on a budget.

Step 1: Choose your BED (if buying a bed is not an option see Step: 2)
Bed's In Store

Where to Find:
1. Saga Upholstered Bed (comes in lots of fabric options): EQ3 $849.00
2. Brimnes Bedframe with Drawers: Ikea $299.00
3. Malm Bed Frame with Storage Behind: Ikea $179.00
Tip 1: If you have a small space and are limited in storage pick a bed with storage like option 1 & 2 above
Tip 2: If you are limited in storage use above your bed for wall mounting storage, the Brimnes wall cabinet is a great option.

Step 2: If purchasing a bed is not an option there are a couple of things that you can do in replacement with using a metal frame and bed skirt.
Tip 1: Paint Your own Head board - Paint the wall behind your bed a colour of your choice and then using tape paint a frame in a contrasting colour, use a stencil in the centre for an extra punch (See PIcture Below)
Tip 2: Upholster Your Own Head Board - Go to Home Depot or Rona and buy 18"x18" pieces of MDF (enough to cover the width and length of your head board)and then buy foam core. Staple the foam core to the MDF to give it some padding/comfort. Find a fabric of your choice and upholster your piece of wood by simply wrapping the fabric around the wood and stapling it at the back with a staple gun. Nail your pieces of MDF side buy side to the wall and there you go.


Step 3: Choose your NIGHT TABLES
Where to Find:
1. Stria Night Stand: West Elm $299.00
2. Niche Night Stand: West Elm $249.00
3. Engan Night Stand: Ikea $59.99
4. Edland Night Stand: Ikea $169.00
Tip: Don't Forget, if you buy from Ikea Change the hardware to something else, check out hardware at Restoration Hardware

Step 4: Make a FEATURE out of the wall behind your bed by either PAINTING or WALLPAPERING, or simply adding PICTURES.
Like this:



Step 5: Add COLOUR and ACCESSORIES by buying throw pillows, lamps, a couple of ottomans/storage benches in front of your bed and perhaps slapping some paint on some of your doors.

Tip 1: When you are choosing your bedding, go with something light and fairly plain and have fun with your throw pillows. Bedding with pattern and colour might sound fun initially but as the years go on and you have to live with the same duvet over time you will most likely get sick of it.
Tip 2: If you have hardwood in your bedroom, you might want to buy a rug to warm it up. The rug does not need to sit underneath your entire bed, to save costs buy a small rug that sits in front of your bed. If you have a Queen size bed a 5x7 or even a 4x6 Rug will do the trick.
Tip 3: Large Bedrooms are Over Rated, the bedroom is meant for sleeping and getting ready. If you have enough storage and you feel organized you will realize that you really do not need a big bedroom. If you don't have a big closet and than the PAX Wardrobe units at Ikea are the answer. Use your floor space floor to ceiling to store belongings, the mirrored door options are a good choice if you want to make your room look larger.
Tip 4: For great price and great quality bedding I always recommend Gluckstein Bedding which can be found at the Bay.
