It’s fun to live in luxury, but if you’re on a limited budget or you’ve just purchased a home a luxurious home decor can feel out of reach.

Luckily, there are ways to make various areas of your home feel upscale without breaking the bank. Here are a few tips for creating a budget friendly luxurious-feeling bedroom.

Upscale Bedroom Decor on a Limited Budget

Add Light

Hanging light fixtures are a relatively easy and inexpensive way to make your bedroom look and feel a bit more luxurious. Choose something that is functional and effectively lights the space, but that makes a statement as well.

Add Plants

Plants add a little splash of life to a room and can help to make the space feel a bit more vibrant and alive. Be sure that if you add plants, you are committed to keeping them alive and healthy, otherwise adding plants will have the opposite effect!

Replace Cheap Hardware

You may not be able to fit a new bedroom furniture set into your budget, but chances are you can afford to invest in new furniture hardware. Adding new knobs and handles to dressers and nightstands can give them new life and take your bedroom look to the next level.

Change Up Your Curtains

Your current curtains could be making your bedroom feel drab just because of how they are hanging. Try hanging long drapes higher up above the window and wider than the window frame. This trick can help to make your windows feel significantly larger – and, depending on the style and length of the curtains you have, you may not even need to invest in new curtains!

Fluff Up Your Pillows

Frumpy pillows aren’t doing your bedroom any favors – and they’re not comfortable to relax on either. Get rid of any old, flattened out or lumpy pillows and replace them with fresh fluffy pillows that look – and feel – more luxurious. You may be surprised what a difference it makes.

Remove Clutter

Eliminating clutter by either throwing it out or storing it appropriately can help to make rooms feel more spacious and well put together. This is a free and incredibly effective way to make your bedroom – or any room in the house, for that matter – feel much more upscale.


In addition to removing clutter, spending a little bit of time cleaning up your bedroom can go a long way. Getting rid of dusty surfaces and dust bunnies, taking out the garbage, polishing furniture, and washing your sheets, blankets, and pillows regularly can help keep your room looking spick and span.

Splurge Where it Matters

Investing in one or two statement pieces that you really love can give you enough inspiration and focus to decorate a whole room with style. If you find an item that you really love and you feel you can base the rest of the room’s decor around it, it might be worth the splurge.

Creating an Upscale Space on a Low Scale Budget

With the above tips in mind, creating a luxurious bedroom space is within reach, even for those with budget limitations.
