7 Budget-Friendly Ideas for Cozy Bedroom

Posted by on October 12, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Creating a cozy home becomes the primary focus for all the cold months ahead when you must spend your weekend indoors. Everything makes winter more fun than bundling with a cup of tea in a cozy full-size mattress in a box and enjoying a fragrant scented candle with a good book or a binge session on Netflix.

We explore easy ways for any season to make your bedroom cozier. There are several ways to add a warm and inviting feeling to your bedroom. Also, there are hundreds of possible ideas to dress up your bedroom, breaking the bank, depending on your location.

But you don't have to make up the whole room because all it takes is a couple of adjustments here and there. Here are seven budget-friendly ideas to build a cozy bedroom:

1. Find Unique and Second-Hand Pieces

Be proud of your room by adding to a few DIY or up-cycled pieces. Redesign furniture and decor will give your bedroom a welcoming and cozy feeling without breaking the bank.

Search for thrift pieces to which you can bring new life. Then use your imagination, some light-colored paint, and matching furniture to make your decor enjoyable. You can introduce an old product bin and antique candles to create a modern and vintage look.

2. Layer Your Bed

In your linen closet, it's always a good idea to have a couple of spare pieces to add warmth to your bedroom. However, there are many other ways of keeping your room snug and cozy. Who doesn't love to rest in a warm nest at night?

The best starting point is to layer the bed with photo pillows or blanket that can be pulled up at night. In this way, it will add the additional warmth factor to keep you cozy and comfortable. Tuck all the extra bedding, or even a folding mattress, at the foot of the bed, so that additional warmth can be easily unfolded and draped over your bed.

You could lay down on even more luxury with textured pillows for extra warmth and comfort if you need to fend chills in the night. If you're handy with a pair of knitting needles, it's easy to create cable-knit blankets, and fake fur blankets are chic and look great in any space.

You may want to think about buying or making a bench or blanket chest. It can be positioned at the foot of the bed to store your winter bedding if you're in an area that gets very chilly in the evenings.

3. Add Some Warmth to the Floor

You could add even more insulation with a layer of comfort underfoot in a room with ceramic or porcelain tile, or plywood flooring. During the colder months, yet some carpets require cushioning, so adding a fake fur area rug or patterned rug to your floor will add warmth.

Shop for a large floor rug that will look good at your bed and give you a place to rest your feet when heading in and off the bed. Also, you can purchase two little carpets on either side of the bed. Keep in mind that you should look for quality mats that have better support that will prevent them from sliding around.

4. Upgrade Your Window Treatment

Windows are the leading causes of cold homes. Gaps between windows and doors (and sure there will be plenty) let in cold air and let out warm air. Use a layered window treatment to block chilly air from entering your bedroom if you are unable to insulate your windows.

Consider a layered window treatment which consists of Roman or simple blinds. It can be placed as the first layer directly just above the window. This coating can help reduce the airflow between window frames to and from any gaps. Curtains' second layer can help divide the space and lock warm air within.

Adding a layered window treatment is not a challenging project. To hang a beautiful pair of curtains, you only have to measure up to fit a curtain rail or track above the window. Shop for winter curtains medium-weight material, one that certainly holds the chill at bay and adds the feature to the bedroom.

5. Amp Up Your Lighting

Set the bedroom for a warm-light and comfy environment. If you need to, you don't need to remove your current lighting, but add warm white lamps to make the perfect light level for your bedroom.

A pair of bedside lamps are ideal budget decor for your bedroom, providing just the right amount of warm light. Hotels worldwide use warm bedside lighting to create the perfect mood and calming atmosphere. Try to substitute cool white with warm white lights to instantly add warmth to any room.

6. Rearrange Your Furniture

Sometimes you can drastically change your room's look and feel just by rearranging the furniture. For example, if when you step into your bedroom room, the very first thing you see in the back of the cabinet, the large piece of furniture restricts traffic.

Moving the sofa to the rear wall could make a new highlight, ease traffic congestion, and make space look more welcoming. And best of all, it does not cost anything at all.

When you can't find a decent way to arrange the furniture in the room comfortably, this doesn't automatically mean you want new furniture. Consider “shopping for your home” before you hit the shelves. Maybe the first piece you need is already sitting in another room, and all you have to do is exchange it for one of the items you use now.

The question is not that you need more furniture in the room in other situations–it's that you do have much in there. You need to put some out rather than putting some bits in. You can move the discarded parts into the house's various rooms, or give them to someone that can use them.

7. Consider Repurposing Your Furniture

If you've been searching for your entire house and are unable to find an appropriate piece of furniture for your bed, do not give up. Sometimes through transforming an old part into a new purpose, you can make what you want. You might use a table as a desk, for example, or a bedside table as a TV stand.

Repurposing pieces also includes changing its look. For example, before transforming it to a table, you can refurbish or finish a wooden table. Also, you can remove a whole section and use the different components in new ways.

Final Thoughts

By following these simple tips, you turn your bedroom into a cozy haven. All of the above strategies are easy to apply, can make your room, and will not cost so much. And you'll be bundled in a warm cocoon at the end of the day when the temperature drops.
