Budget Bedroom Decorating for Serenity


Adults, especially adults who have children, often put the decorating of their own bedrooms on the back burner. They end up with the same décor for a decade or get all of the “leftover” pieces of furniture from the rest of the house. The problem, though, is that as adults our bedroom often becomes like a nice little safe haven for us to get away. Whether you spend a lot of spare time in bed reading or watching TV or just head into your room to plop down at the end of the day, it’s important to decorate your bedroom in a way that will make you feel serene and peaceful. Just do budget decorating to avoid stressing about the money!

Look for pictures to frame.

One of the least expensive ways to get beautiful pictures on the wall is to put them together yourself. Purchasing a pre-framed picture can be very expensive, but you can put your own together for less than $5. Buy either a beautiful picture book or a calendar and a frame. Use an X-acto knife or box cutter and cut out a portion of the image that fits into the frame. By choosing a theme you really enjoy, it’s possible to get an entire wall of photos out of a single calendar or book purchase.

Colored gems are versatile.

There’s a reason that colored gems are so highly popular in craft stores! These little gems are one of the best ways to decorate on a budget. Find a nice plate around five to six inches – about the size of a side plate – and just pour a multi-colored bag of gems in it. These gems also work for putting into the bottom of a vase with large wicker balls, candles, or faux flowers. A bag of gems will cost anywhere from $1-$3. By putting these gems with other items, you will have an elegant, serene item on your dresser or nightstand again for less than $5.

Mirrors add depth.

Mirrors are common to use because they add depth to a room. Mirrors that are made for hanging can cost upwards of$25 each, but there are some ways to get these items for less. Try out craft stores or wedding supply stores. These places sell mirrors that are not intended for permanent decorating but that will work just fine. Wedding supply stores often have small mirrors that are intended to be used as wedding favors are as little as $2 each. By getting a set of 8 to 10, you could put together a cool display of mirrors for $20.

Rugs are simple budget decoration items.

Area rugs can be $100 or more, even at mass merchandisers or discount stores, but getting a braided rug or a smaller rug for each side of the bed or just large enough for an open area of the floor are wonderful ways to add pops of color without spending a bundle.

The next time you realize that you need less stress and more calmness in your life, consider one of these options. They will allow you to keep to a decent decorating budget while improving the quality of your day-to-day life.
