Between sleeping, getting ready for work or school, and just plain lounging around, we spend a lot of time in our bedrooms. All of that time is exactly why your bedroom should be more than just... a bedroom.
Ready to give your room an upgrade and turn it into a sleep sanctuary? A restful, cozy escape from the stress of your day? If you’ve looked into refreshing your sleep sanctuary, you know it can get expensive quickly. From new furniture to small repairs, the financial investment of re-doing an entire room sucks — Mattress Firm can help.
At Mattress Firm, your budget stretches further — that’s why we’re sharing some of our budget-friendly tips to refresh your room without emptying your pockets. We’re talking about everything from king size beds to one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Here are just a few of our favorites:
1. Boost Your Bed
Your headboard is one of the most important design elements of your room. If you’re in need of a change, consider sprucing up your headboard to give your bed a completely different look. The best part is that there are tons of DIY projects that make upgrading your headboard easy and affordable.
From easy embroidery to woven wonders, a quick trip to your nearest craft store will leave you done in no time. Find more inspiration and headboard how-to’s from Mattress Firm’s investigations, here.
2. Fit for a King
Bigger has always been better — now, thanks to Mattress Firm, bigger is also in your budget. That’s why we’ve been doing The Big Price Drop for the past month: so that you can get the bed you want, at a price you can afford. But look out, it’s ending soon!
If you hurry in, you can get a king-sized mattress for the price of a queen and a queen-sized mattress for the price of a twin. Take advantage of this sale by visiting a store near you and upgrade your sleep space with a bigger, better mattress.
3. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
If you’re looking for that extra touch, add a mirror to your bedroom for some additional appeal. Believe it or not, interior designers suggest having a mirror in every room and your bedroom is no exception.
Although mirrors are often perceived to be a bank-breaker, there are several cheaper options out there.
4. Treasure Hunting
Whether you’re just looking for a unique item to liven up your space, or need to completely refurnish your room, look into used or pre-loved decor and furniture. Garage sales and estate sales in your neighborhood are always a great place to start — oftentimes, people will sell lightly used pieces of furniture that just don’t fit right in their new home. And someone else’s just-an-inch-too-big dresser could be the treasure you’ve been looking for!
