Here’s the thing: Luxury bedroom decor doesn’t have to come with a budget that matches.
Investing in a few, select high-quality pieces of bedroom furniture will allow you to create a luxury bedroom that doesn’t cost as much as you might think. From finding the best mattress, to keeping your space spare with a consistent bedroom decor style, you’re going to find it a lot easier than you expect!
Wondering how you can get the million-dollar space, without the million-dollar budget? Here are some of our top tips for creating a luxury bedroom that you’re going to find suits your space without your wallet feeling the pinch.
1. Pick bedroom colors that emulate luxury.
When you’re working out how to decorate your bedroom with luxury bedroom colors, it’s best to stick to a subtle color theme. Muted tones such as white, beige, or other neutral pastel shades are a great addition to a luxury bedroom, along with gold or metallic accents for that extra touch of grandeur.
Another way to introduce a luxury bedroom color scheme into your space is by picking bedroom furniture that can also serve as color accent pieces – think a golden night lamp, or a metallic nightstand to offset all the creams and beige tones.
Deeper, rich tones can also have a luxurious look if done correctly. Try to avoid highly saturated tones in your space, since this can actually disrupt you from getting a good night’s sleep, and make it more complicated when you’re trying to rest at night. Stick to muted, toned-down versions of the shades you like for a bedroom that is both comfortable to sleep in, but looks luxurious too!
2. Invest in a high-quality mattress and luxurious bedding.
No luxury bedroom can be complete without a mattress that’s going to be able to compete with hotel-standard beds. Finding the best mattress for a luxurious night’s sleep requires some trial and error. Most hotels use the best mattresses made of memory foam for sleep that contours to the body but is still supportive through the night.
The best mattresses are going to be plush, and durable enough to be worth the investment.
How can you try these out on a budget though? Well, many mattress companies will additionally allow you to trial their products for a good amount of time before you have to commit to your purchase. So even if you take the leap and it doesn’t work out, you can try again.
If you’re convinced you have the best mattress for your sleep, try and pay attention to your bed frame, or even accessories such as a mattress protector, since these can all contribute to the overall comfort of your sleep.
A really beautiful and extravagant looking bedding set can also transform your room into something out of a magazine. And you don’t have to spend all the $$$ either. Check out the home decor sections at discount stores like TJ Maxx and HomeGoods, where you can get designer-branded comforter sets for a super discounted cost.
3. Select seamless storage solutions.
Once you’ve picked the best mattress and bedding, it’s time to consider the external facets of your bedroom. This includes finding storage solutions that integrate seamlessly with your bedroom and help minimize the clutter in your bedroom, which can make your space look shabby. A messy room tends to look like it hasn’t been decorated well, and can also make your space look cheap, so it only makes sense to find storage solutions that make the job of cleaning up easier.
Whether it’s a bookshelf that you can use to display knick-knacks or a bed frame that can keep seasonal winter wardrobe tucked away nice and neat instead of filling up space in your wardrobe, the right storage solutions can create the illusion of a larger, more spacious bedroom for you to move around in.
Another top tip for creating more space in your bedroom— Make sure there are at least two feet of space around your bed and other bedroom furniture for a space that really looks inviting.
4. Add a lounging area for a special space.
One of the most common attributes of luxury bedrooms is that they are often sectioned off, and almost always include a lounging space within where you can talk, read, enjoy a cup of coffee and just relax.
If you have space in your bedroom, try adding a simple armchair for a reading spot that doesn’t have to be on your bed. This is going to add more dimension and space to your bedroom, along with some flexibility in the types of activity you can do in your bedroom.
When you’re picking seating for your ‘lounge’ area, try and pick tones and fabrics that match the bedroom decor style you’ve chosen. Add interest in the form of different textures and layers – a micro-mink throw, or a shag rug, can all add to the visual interest of your space and are very simple ways to increase the coziness of your space. They also keep things looking luxurious and comfortable.
From finding awesome bedding to keeping your accent pieces within a pre-decided color scheme, the right luxury bedrooms are going to focus on quality, a modern approach, and of course, comfort.
Your bedroom is the one space in your home you can really personalize to your own preferences, and a smaller budget is no reason you won’t be able to splurge out on something that feels luxurious.
Staying wise about where you want your money to go is the key to achieving a luxury bedroom that really looks the part. For example, the best mattresses might cost a little extra, but they last anywhere between a decade to twelve years, so they’re truly investment pieces that are worth taking the time for.
Other pieces of bedroom furniture that you’re going to be able to keep around for a long time include your nightstand, storage solutions, and work desks. Other room accessories, such as decorative accents, seating, or paint, are more easily changed, so try and be flexible with those aspects of your space as you decorate your own luxury bedroom.
