Want your bedroom to look rich, elegant and luxurious – even if you don’t have a billionaire’s decorating budget? The following 4 décor ideas are all reasonably affordable ways you could implement that sumptuous appearance in the bedroom:
1. An Elegant Bedhead
If you want to create a luxurious bedroom environment, choose a posh bedhead that sets the tone for the entire space. When a lavish look is the primary goal, your bedhead may well be the single most important design element in the entire bedroom.
An extravagant bedhead commands attention. If you place your bed opposite the entrance to the bedroom, the bedhead makes a natural focal point for the room – so choose it wisely, and then make sure everything else in the room harmonizes with it.
2. Velvet Accents
Velvet offers you one of the most opulent-looking textures you could introduce into your bedroom environment. Furthermore, velvet is trendy right now, so you have many options for possible accent pieces in this fabrication. Look for velvet throws or scatter cushions. A graceful chair upholstered in velvet is another lovely option to consider.
3. Silky Bamboo Sheets and Bedding
Sumptuous sheets offer you the epitome of a luxurious experience. Do you dream of slumbering peacefully between silk sheets?

4. Magnificent Artwork
Art collecting is a popular pastime amongst wealthy people, but you don’t have to be rich to acquire a fabulous art collection. Thanks to marketplaces like Etsy, you can buy original art affordably. It is available for purchase directly from the artists who create it, which allows you to eliminate the middlemen and get an outstanding bargain on your art purchases.
Pro Tip: Experts at a noteworthy American art gallery recommend hanging your artwork by measuring 145 centimeters (57 inches) up from the floor and using that measurement as the exact spot to place the central point of the art piece. However, they advise that you can safely disregard that rule if you’re hanging artwork over your bed or other furniture – in which case, you should hang the artwork 15-20 centimeters (6-8 inches) above the furniture piece.
4. Dramatic Floor-Length Draperies
Don’t skimp on the draperies you hang in your bedroom. Lovely, eye-catching curtains can enhance the space and make it feel like a lavish boudoir. Choose curtains that will complement the other textiles you’ve chosen for this room.
If you’re aiming for a traditional look in your bedroom, glorious tassels could make the ideal finishing touch for your curtains. If your space is more contemporary in style, forget the tassels and leave the drapes unadorned.
To keep your curtains perfectly styled, remember that you can pair them with blinds or blackout shades. That way, you can open and close the shades or blinds as needed to control the flow of light into the room — without disturbing the flawless cascade of your draperies.
These 4 ideas are sure to make your bedroom look and feel more luxurious. Definitely consider implementing these ideas if you have an ordinary decorating budget, but you want your bedroom to look extraordinary.
