‘Tis the season for cozying up indoors with a good book and a hot cup of cocoa, and that means making your apartment truly feel like your home. If you’re ready to switch up your design at home, but don’t have a big budget or a knack for DIY, you’re in good luck. You can completely revamp your bedroom on a small budget, and without a lot of heavy labor or arts and crafts skills.

Express your unique personality and style in your favorite room for rest and relaxation, and consider making small changes that have big impact, like updating your bedding, picking up a new rug, switching out hardware or simply rearranging your furniture.

Here are simple budget bedroom design ideas to help you get started!

New Bedding
Changing up your bedding can instantly change your bedroom’s design motif from classic to modern or from beachy to graphic. Consider purchasing a new cover for your duvet, or picking up a new comforter, and plan to spend $100 or less. If you have a bigger budget, you can grab a few stylish throw pillows, throw blanket and sheets and pillow covers to go with your new look.

Update Hardware
Turn your drab dresser and nightstand into chic, contemporary or classic designer furniture by simply replacing the hardware. You can pick up funky, bright or updated pulls and handles at Amazon, Target or your favorite vintage antique store, and spend $50 or less. Before you purchase, do some research and compare design styles to make sure they match your furnishings, then purchase and switch out with ease!

Declutter
Let’s face it-a stylish bedroom doesn’t include piles of clutter. If you’ve been using your bedroom side tables, bookshelf or other surfaces as storage spaces for your paperwork, old magazines, stray books or electronics, now is the time to clear out and declutter. Too much clutter can cause you stress and hinder your ability to sleep, so eliminate the piles and make instant impact in your room and mood.

New Rug
Add a splash of color and texture to your bedroom by picking up a vibrant, new rug. You can spend $100 or less and make instant impact to your color scheme with a simple 5x7 rug from Target, Wayfair or Overstock. Choose a rug that matches your design style and textile preferences, and use it to create a cozy reading nook or to simply add a pop of color to an otherwise muted or drab-feeling room.

Rearrange
Spend zero dollars, and give your room a whole new feel by simply rearranging your existing furniture. This is one of the easiest ways to update your bedroom, and all you’ll need is the man-power to help you lift heavy furniture or items. You’ll give your bedroom fresh flow and a brand new perspective instantly!

Lighting is Key
Good lighting can go a long way in just about any room in your home, so consider switching up your lighting scheme. Pick up a floor lamp, or a couple of lamps to place beside your bed or on top of your dresser. Keep overhead lights turned off whenever possible, choose three-way light bulbs and create a tranquil, relaxing environment in no time.

Add An Accent Wall
An easy way to update your room without having to do an all-out paint job is to simply paint one wall in your room as an accent wall. You can choose to paint or even use wallpaper or peel and stick graphic art to bring color and style to your room without lifting one piece of furniture or spending a lot of cash.
