Outfitting your bedroom on a budget does not have to be a headache. Sticking to a specific budget may require a lot of discipline because, well, you may get tempted into buying stuff that you don’t need or which may blow your budget over the top. If you are wondering how you are going to furnish your bedroom under a tight budget, below are a few tips to help you out.

Plan ahead

Planning ahead is a no brainer. The last thing you want is to walk into a store and buy just about anything that catches your eyes. Ensure you plan ahead to avoid unnecessary costs. A good way around it is looking for ideas on Pinterest, from decor to furniture ideas, you will find endless possibilities. Also, prepare a list of the things you will need and try to look up their prices, just to have a rough estimate of what you will need. 

Use discounted gift cards and discount codes

Discounted gift cards and discount codes are a lifesaver. You can get even up to 50% discounts on the items you buy. Now, if you have a couple of discounted gift cards, then go ahead to make purchases using discount codes, you will be able to save a few bucks. 


If you have a budget to stick to, then prioritizing will help you get the most pressing things done first. Plan for the most important things first, especially bigger items that need to fill particular spaces then buy the other smaller things later. With bigger items fitted first, you will better know how to accessorize them and where to place the other smaller items.

Thrift shop

You will never go wrong with thrifting. There are a lot of thrift shops both online and offline where you can get amazing stuff in good condition. The better part is that you will get these items at very low prices, cheaper than you would have gotten them when new. The stuff are not overused and what’s more, they are legit and not the pricey knock offs you will get in some of the stores.

Shop online

By shopping online, you will get some of the best stuff just in the comfort of your home. A lot of online shops have made it easy to access some of the best home decor items and furniture without having to physically visit different shops, which is sometimes too much work especially if you are busy. With online shopping, you will get everything you need from bedside lamps to rugs, be covers, and these white dressing tables. Also, online shopping gives you a chance to window shop and save the items you like before the actual shopping.


DIY items are some of the most sentimental things you can have in your bedroom. Instead of buying everything, you can choose to make some of the things yourself. All you need is to check videos online for ideas and how to do stuff and you will be good to go.
