5 Cozy, Cheap Winter Bedroom Decoration Ideas

Let’s transform your bedroom with 5 basic decorating ideas. You can easily repurpose thrifted finds and work with items you already own to up the cozy, hygge aesthetic in your bedroom.

What Are The Benefits Of A Cozy Bedroom

Creating a cozy retreat to escape the hectic day-to-day activities is important for relaxation and mental health. Comfortable bedding, throw pillows, blankets, and stylish aesthetics can help to reduce stress and allow for a better night’s sleep.

Therefore, a cozy bedroom design is important for your well-being.

Why Do We Decorate The Bedroom Last?

“We spend nearly half of our lifetime lying around in bed,” according to this NY Post article.

Therefore, the bedroom is a big deal. However, it can be a neglected area of our home when it comes to decorating.

So, why do we decorate the bedroom last?

Some would say, because guests don’t see the bedroom. Who are you trying to impress? Decorate your spaces so that YOU love them, not to impress others.

Because we spend so much time here, it’s important that we spend some time creating a space that YOU love. A warm retreat that allows you to relax and get a good night’s sleep.

In my opinion, bedrooms should always have a warm, cozy feel, and these budget-friendly, cheap tips work for any season to keep your spaces inviting.

How To Make My Bedroom Cozy For Winter: Warm and Cozy Bedding

The first and most obvious way to make your bedroom warm and cozy is to invest in quality bedding.

I like to splurge on organic cotton sheets because they enhance my sleep quality and feel wonderful.

However, there is a wide range of super cozy quilts, comforters, throw blankets, and pillows to choose from, and many are very budget-friendly.

The ruffled quilt reaches the floor and doesn’t require a bed ruffle; therefore, it is budget-friendly. It’s also neutral, and you can upgrade the throw pillows and pillow shams with fresh new colors seasonally. The blue and white floral pillow shams will continue to look stylish for Spring.

I prefer to layer my bedding, which also helps to keep your choices budget-friendly.

Instead of one heavy comforter, I like lighter-weight pieces like quilts and blankets stacked together.

Cozy Bedroom Ideas include quality beddding.

This allows you to remove layers as the weather warms up. In addition, if you and your husband have different comfort levels, you can easily remove the cover from one side of the bed (mine)!

Another tip is to keep the main bedding pieces neutral. This allows you to add colorful seasonal pillows and create a whole different feel within the room without replacing the more expensive pieces.

Cozy Decorating Ideas For Bedroom – Woods and Whites

I’ve always loved the combination of warm wood tones mixed with shades of white. This combination creates a cozy farmhouse feel to any room.

You don’t have to paint everything white. Instead, use a combination of natural woods to warm the space.

Adding the wooden candlesticks really warms up the upside-down mantel above the bed and brings out the natural wood of the headboard as well.

Decorating Bedroom On A Budget With Candles

Candles are a cheap and effective way to warm a bedroom with a budget in mind. The candlesticks hold battery-operated flicker candles, which safely create warmth without being a fire hazard in any room.

Mirrors Lighten a Dark Bedroom and Reflect The Warm Glow

Another great, cozy, inexpensive bedroom idea is to add mirrors to reflect light from the candles and other objects, such as glass and brass. They help to brighten a dark room and add a cheerful feeling.

Collecting mirrors from thrift stores is a budget-friendly way to add to your bedroom decor. Even if the frame is dark, a fresh coat of white or gold paint is an easy fix. See more about successful thrift store shopping here.

In addition, tucking small mirrors into a dark cupboard will add dimension to small shelves and make objects appear larger. Everything within the room appears brighter with the addition of mirrors.

The primitive cupboard is filled with thrift store finds from old books, clocks, and tureens to blue and white transferware and mirrors.

Brass and Silver For Cozy Bedroom Decorations

Vintage Brass pieces also help to reflect warm light within the bedroom. I always pick up vintage brass candlesticks at thrift stores because you can use them throughout the whole house. In addition, brass is on trend right now, and you can find some great vintage pieces.

Silver trophies, trays, and bowls are also great ways to add light to the room.

Here, a brass planter is filled with rolled music sheets and covered with a glass cloche. While a thrifted doll chair serves as a candle stand.

Brass adds warmth to the cozy bedroom ideas.

The TV is surrounded by warm candles, a brass tray filled with pinecones, and a touch of faux snow. The addition of winter greenery, music pages, and an antique mirror create an interesting wall behind the TV.

The old sap buckets are filled with fresh-cut boxwood, which will continue to look good through Spring if left untouched. A combination of wood and whites also helps to distract from the dreaded black box in the room.

Warm and Cozy Bedroom Ideas – Rugs

Another more obvious warm and cozy bedroom idea is to add an area rug. There are so many great options now available in washable rugs.

So lovely and inviting. Yes cozy is good. Winter has some disadvantages, however, it puts the ground to sleep so it will have energy to grow plants all the other seasons.
