We’ve been talking a lot about budget lately. Determining how much you’re willing and able to spend on redecorating your space is an important first step to take. No one buys a bed every month, or even every year, so it’s hard to have a good sense of how much things cost. To help you plan, we’ve taken a look at what $1,000 vs $5,000 will get you in a bedroom.

$1,000 Budget

We recommend focusing on accessories with a $1,000 budget. A bed itself can cost close to, if not more than $1,000, so large pieces are likely out of the question. That doesn’t mean that you still can’t spruce up your sleeping space! Items like rugs and pillows can quickly transform any space. Because accessories are meant to be more trendy and less permanent, you don’t need to spend as much money on them. Take pillows for example. On a bed, they are merely decorative as you won’t be sleeping on them. They’re really just there for looks, so there’s no need to worry about getting a down insert or a high thread count cotton.

$5,000 Budget

Having a larger budget really helps transform a space! With a $5,000 budget, you’re able to afford a lot more including quality pieces. At this spend, you’re able to buy your larger pieces like a bed and nightstands. These are the pieces we recommend going for high quality, higher spend since they are something you’ll likely want to last for a while. Also, since we spend nearly a third of our lives in bed, you want it to be comfortable! If you need to completely start from scratch on a room, $5,000 is a great staring budget. From there, you can determine if you want to spend more or less on things like accessories that are also very important to pulling together a space!
