Budget Bedroom Decorating Ideas

While our economy continues to struggle, frugal decorating is not only a good idea, for many families it is a must. Being on a tight budget doesn't have to mean you can't change the look in your bedroom. You just need to be a savvy shopper and think of creative ways to use what you already have.

One way to save money on new bedding is to look for bed ensembles, sometimes called a bed-in-a-bag. Buying comforters, shams, sheet sets and bed skirts individually can really add up fast. A bed ensemble is all-inclusive, meaning you get everything you need for a complete bed set for one price, which can really save you a lot of money.

Check out the great prices on these bed ensembles, which are all under $70:

Daphine Bed Ensemble

Edisto 8 Piece Bed Ensemble

Jakarta 8 Piece Bed Ensemble

Gwyneth Classic 8 Piece Bed Ensemble

Morini Bed Ensemble

Sonya Circle 8 Piece Bed Ensemble

In addition to inexpensive bedding, you can find cheap wall decor to add a decorative touch to your bedroom walls. If you like Asian themed decor, these wall hangings are all under $20.00 each.

You don't even have to paint the entire room. You can try a contrasting color on just one or two walls. Wallpaper borders are another affordable option to add a decorative touch to your bedroom.
