I recently wrote this post about the final touches in our Master Bedroom and mentioned I was planning to do a follow-up post about how to achieve the look of our bedroom on a budget.


Affordable Bedroom Furniture and Decor Pieces on a Budget


I created the graphic above so you can see how cost-friendly the bed and bedding is. I didn’t include the mattress (because that’s a staple most people already have). Sometimes, a bed on a frame is as far as a bedroom gets but adding a few inexpensive pieces to your mattress can really make a space look decorated and finished.



You can shop the individual pieces in our bedding below. Take note that the Medallion duvet (comes in gray and navy) is on sale right now. What I love about it is that it has a cream background which to me makes it feel a little bit more fall-like, and it is made of a beautiful, soft fabric too.The nailhead headboard is just $225 and I purchased it for staging purposes but really, the gray fabric is so perfect we keep using it. You can’t beat the price!


Bedrooms can often be decorated last because they are such private spaces, I know it can be hard to justify spending the money on a space you mostly just sleep in, right? While I purchased most of the items over time, none of the individual pieces are what I would consider to be inexpensive. Having this space feel finished was well worth doing, life can be hectic it’s nice to have a beautiful space to retreat to.



As far as the other sources in the room, my nightstand was a Homegoods find, but below are some other inexpensive mirrored options. I like the touch of glam that the mirrored finish added. My husband has this weathered gray nightstand, it is more his style and the 3 drawers are useful for storage.


The biggest impact in the room, in my opinion, comes from the new dark gray velvet drapes. I wrote all about them in this post, but the dark velvet was a surprise hit and I think adds a bit of coziness and drama. They really polished everything off perfectly and they are excellent quality for the price plus they come in a ton of colors here.



I had purchased the gray rug to tide us over in our rental while we waited on this home to be finished, it was inexpensive and I really liked the pretty, rich pattern. Originally I had it in our family room but I moved it up here because the ends were starting to curl up a bit from all the traffic down there. Up here, under the bed, it is just fine and adds interest to the room. It is less than $300 for an 8×10″.

I linked a similar bench along with some other options, it is so nice to have a bench at the end of the bed. Here are some affordable options below.  This bench came from HomeGoods, originally I had this beautiful gray velvet bench in here (again with the gray velvet!) but that is currently in our downstairs hallway.

I found the mirror over the bed at HomeGoods, but a very similar mirror can be found here.


So, all in all, the total for this entire space was less than $1500 which is very reasonable for a master bedroom. Hopefully this post is helpful in providing some options to finish your spaces off within a budget.


An easy resource to decorate your master bedroom on a budget. This gray and cream room was done on a $1500 budget, with all sources included.
