Decorating your home and getting it to your liking can be very expensive, and it’s difficult to know which rooms to spend the most money on. Inevitably, you’ll want to splash the cash on areas like the living room and kitchen for yourself and guests, but you need to think about the master bedroom too – after all, it’s the one room you’ll spend most of your time in. When it comes to refurbishing, here is where to save and where to splurge on your master bedroom.
Save – Lighting
When refurbishing your master bedroom, the lighting you pick can help create the right mood. However, that doesn’t mean you have to spend a ton of money on it. There are lots of quirky light fixtures and lamps at affordable prices which can you buy both online and in-person.
Save – Chair
An empty corner of your master bedroom is the perfect place for a chair. Instead of buying brand new, you can find a second-hand comfy chair and throw a blanket over it. Whatever happens, you shouldn’t let your chair become a place for clutter to pile high!
Save – Throw Pillows
If you’re the type of person who enjoys adding throw pillows onto your bed, while they can boost the coziness factor and add flare in your master bedroom, there’s no need to spend a fortune on them. In the summer months especially, the idea of having excess pillows on your bed may make you sweat, so it’s wise to only bring them in during the winter months. Too many throw pillows can clutter your bed, so try and stick with one or two.
Save – Bedside Table
While a bedside table is a key piece in your master bedroom, this is another item that you can save money on. Instead of splashing out on a brand-new bedside table, there are lots of high-quality secondhand pieces online that look as good as new. If you don’t have enough space in your master bedroom for a bedside table, it’s best to keep your money in your purse and look at stools or box shelves as an alternative.
Splurge – Mattress
A good night’s sleep is essential for your mind and body, so when refurbishing your master bedroom, investing in a good quality mattress is a must. You may not be aware, but old mattresses can do more harm than good for your health. Over time, your mattress can harbor all kinds of bacteria which can make you sick. What’s more, old mattresses lose their ability to provide enough support, meaning you may not be cozy and comfy once you climb into bed. If you’re ready to buy a new mattress but aren’t sure when to get one, there are deals on mattress sales for Labor Day worth checking out.
Splurge – Area Rug
If you have lots of space in your master bedroom, you may be wondering how to fill your floor space. An area rug is a great way to add personality and style. However, if you choose to buy one, you must invest in a good one. Area rugs aren’t something you frequently change out, so it’s best to pick one that will last for years. Whatever you decide on, make sure your area rug feels comfortable under your feet.
Splurge – Pillows
Your pillows are vital for providing support and helping you stay comfortable during the night. Therefore, purchasing quality pillows will last for many years, and not result in an aching neck each morning. There are all kinds of pillows to pick from, such as cotton, feather and memory foam, so make sure you pick those that suit your needs.
Splurge – 100% Cotton Sheets
When getting into bed, you will want any worries and stress to disappear. If you’re lying down on scratchy sheets that cause you to sweat in the night, it’s time to buy 100% cotton sheets which will absorb your body heat during the night, helping you to stay dry and cool. Make sure you pick cotton sheets that blend with the rest of the room and reflect your style.
Regardless of what budget you have or your style preferences, the guide above should help when refurbishing your master bedroom to create a space and décor that flow well together.
