How to Create the Coziest Room Ever, On a Budget…

Think you have to sacrifice cozy decor for a chic look? Think again. A combination of plush accessories with soft hues can create a comfy space you’ll never want to leave. But bringing your room into peak comfiness doesn’t have to mean you have to spend a ton. Affordable cozy decor? Yes, please! Here are seven ways to build the coziest room ever—without busting your budget. 

Invest in Your Bedding

Even if your number one concern right now is, “How can I decorate my dorm on a budget?,” as long as you choose more affordable dorm decor, you can put some funds into your bedding. There is nothing better than sinking into a cozy, comfortable bed.  Experience a great night’s sleep and wrap yourself in a super-soft, luxe down comforter. We especially love premium down fill, which creates extra warmth while keeping you comfortable and cozy all year long.

Cast a Warm Glow

Fall asleep under a starry night with string lights! They're a super easy way to give your room that dreamy aesthetic. Drape them across your wall, frame your desk, or wrap your bed posts—no matter how you use them, string lights cast your entire space with a deliciously cozy ambiance.

Keep Your Feet Warm with Accent Rugs

Something cozy on your toes is practically required for a max comfy space, and a fuzzy rug is just the thing to bring that softness into a small space. Place it next to your bed and let your feet enjoy the furry-soft sensations. Get creative and layer two accent rugs for a textured look.

Pile On the Pillows

If you ask us, there’s no such thing as too many pillows. Add pillows along the wall of your bed to create a plush day bed or use Euro shams throughout your room as extra pouf for lounging.

Decorate with Soft Hues

Soft hues are key to creating a tranquil space. Pairing mellow creams and grays with delicate pinks is one of our favorite color palettes. Add plenty of textured faux fur, knit, and velvet to bring this dreamy look to life.

Add Furry Textures

Anything that adds softness and texture will transform your bedroom into a relaxing oasis. A neutral fringed or tasseled pillow plus an oversized faux-fur pillow will instantly give cozy-chic to your space.

Cuddle Up with a Throw

Is there anything cozier than curling up under a soft throw blanket? Try a super-soft faux fur or knitted style for extra softness. Pile your bed with a few to make it feel extra plush for optimum comfiness.
