Therefore, it’s vital for each one to be satisfied with the look of his/her room. If you are not content with its design but have neither time nor a clear idea of what to do, or worried about the costs, then no need to postpone your desire anymore. There are several affordable bedroom decor trends that you can apply with the minimum effort. Inspired by the 2019 bedroom design trends, here are 20 cheap bedroom decor ideas to make your space look expensive.
1 Chandeliers or hanging lights
Chandeliers are a classy lighting option. They would spread a sense of luxury in the whole space, so as statement hanging lights. Just make sure that the new lighting fixture complements the bedroom style and decor well. For example, a classic chandelier makes a perfect contrast with a modern-styled bedroom and vice versa.
2 A statement piece
Do not overuse statement furniture in your bedroom unless it is a wide one. A luxurious-looking bedroom is more about simplicity and how to employ the space you have smartly. For small and medium bedrooms, go for one statement centerpiece and keep the rest simple. It could be the bed, dresser, a velvet armchair or hanging chair. Also, keep the space breezy and clean; get rid of everything that clutters the room.
3 A touch of greenery
Green plants do not just add an expensive look to your room but freshen it as well. They would make you feel relaxed and comfortable inside the four walls of the room. According to the size of the bedroom, choose between large plants like ferns and small potted plants. And keep in mind that a primary aspect of luxurious interior design is to invite nature into the home.
4 Pay attention to the nightstand
Your nightstand has a lot to add to the look of your room only if you allowed it. If yours looks dull, replace it with a stylish bedside table. It’s an affordable change that you could manage.

Complementing your bed with a thick, elegant blanket would provide your bedroom with the expensive look you seek. Plus, it guarantees warmth. Obtain a throw blanket of wool, velvet, or faux fur.
