Whether you’re sleeping, reading, studying, or are on your phone, chances are that you spend plenty of time in your bedroom. So, you may as well make it as pleasing to the eye as possible, because nobody understands the importance of aesthetics more than the teenagers of today.
Of course, as a teenager, you (probably) don’t have access to much cash, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your room look expensive on a budget. Let’s take a look at 5 affordable and stylish decor ideas for your bedroom. Read on for more bedroom inspiration.
Bendable Waterproof Copper Twinkle Lights
At just $11, these waterproof bendable copper twinkle lights are more understated than your standard green-wire Christmas lights, these lights cast a subtle glow. They also happen to be fireproof thanks to the copper wire that they are attached to. Hang it up along your ceiling or use them to turn your wall into a polaroid photo gallery.
If you’ve been on TikTok at all recently – and let’s face it, you probably have – then you know that LED lights and string lights are all the rage right now, especially for decorating bedrooms. They’re a great way to light up the space in a unique way, and they’re also far more subtle than your standard ceiling light, which can make your bedroom appear more welcoming and pleasant.
Frigidaire Retro Mini Refrigerator
Whether you stock yours with snacks, skin care or water, this tiny fridge is surprisingly useful, and it only costs $32. If you’re a fan of the 40s and 50s, then you’ll love the Frigidaire miniature retro refrigerator, which comes in a couple of different colors that you can match to the overall vibe of your room.
It’s also small enough to be able to fit into just about anywhere in your room, though we think that it looks best on or underneath a desk. It’s great for storing all sorts of things, but drinks and snacks especially for those chronic midnight snackers of the world.
Vinyl Wall-Art decals
If you aren’t allowed to paint the walls of your room, either because of your parents or because of RA’s, vinyl decals can really spruce up your room without leaving any permanent consequences, and they only cost around $14. They come in literally hundreds of different designs, all that can cater to your personal taste and aesthetic.
You might want to steer clear of some of the ‘cuter’ wall decal designs, as they can quickly go from making your room look more fun to making it look like a baby nursery. That’s probably the last thing you want, but some simple shapes, pictures, or even line art decals can add a cool and sophisticated touch to your abode.
Waneway Lighted Vanity Mirror With Dimmable LED Bulbs and Touch Control Design
That’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it? The name really says it all. This mirror has LED bulbs around its perimeter so that you can see your mug clear as day, even when you’re doing your makeup at 1:30 in the morning. You can adjust the brightness with just a touch, which makes this a super convenient product for any room.
Nothing elevates a getting-reading routine quite like a light up mirror inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood, even if you’re just getting ready for school. This item is a little more on the expensive side of life at $60, but we still think it’s quite a still when compared to other light up mirrors on the market right now.
Lima Llama Flower Planter
What could possibly be more cheerful than a live plant in your room? The answer is simple: a live plant inside of a porcelain llama pot. Go for a tiny little cactus – not only are they extremely easy to grow, but this planter just begs for something with a little attitude.
Of course, if cacti aren’t your vibe (most people don’t enjoy being stabbed by their flora), then you could always opt for a gentle succulent, like some aloe. It’s both pretty and good for you. At just $33, this llama planter can add some life to your room by giving you a place to plant real, living plants.
When you spend most of your time in a dull room, you are not going to feel inspired or motivated to do your school work, clean your room, or pursue your goals. Try some of the above decor ideas to make your space feel more alive.
