3 Looks, 1 (Small) Budget: Makeover Your Bed for Under $100

Buying budget-friendly bedding is like walking aisle-by-aisle through the dollar store: "Everything's so cheap!" you'll say, as you grab handfuls of votive candles and duct tape. Before you know it, you've tallied up a $60 bill on nothing more than silly putty and plastic hangers. Okay, so it's not exactly like that, but the sentiment is the same. While individually, everything feels like quite the steal of a deal, when it comes time to total it all up, you might be surprised how quickly your money goes.

So, to save you from bedroom buying burnout (or rather, run out...as in, what your bank account might be likely to do otherwise), we've put together three stylish combinations, each under $100, including a duvet set, sheet set, throw pillows and decorative blanket.

Clean & Sophisticated

If you believe your bedroom should be a refuge, keep your linens mostly neutral, but add in nubby textures and simple geometrics to up the style ante.

  1. ORMHASSEL Throw in Gray at IKEA, $17.99
  2. Slub-weave Cushion Cover at H&M Home, $5.99 each
  3. Room Essentials Easy Care Queen Sheet Set Prints in Turquoise at Target, $32.99
  4. Wayfair Basics Queen Duvet Cover Set in Gray at Wayfair, $29.99

Total Price: $92.95

Dreamy Florals

I'm all for hushed tones and serene decor in the place I rest my head every night, but I also know that look isn't for everyone. This option showcases a color combo that is lively and pretty yet still calm and tranquil: lilac, peachy coral and dusty gray. The lumbar pillow (in place of two throw pillows) keeps making the bed in the mornings low-maintenance.

  1. Velvet Cushion Cover in Light Pink at H&M Home, $9.99
  2. Room Essentials Jersey Queen Sheet Set Solids in Coral at Target, $33.99
  3. Alex & Zoe Claudia Duvet Set, Full/Queen at TJ Maxx, $29.99
  4. Clarence Throw in Light Gray at Ashley HomeStore, $22.50 (on clearance)

Total Price: $96.47

Modern Tropics

Here's a look I'm calling "Modern Tropics." It hints at the tropical print trend, but tones it down with a blue and white palette. A tasseled, striped throw for the foot of the bed adds additional pattern, but in a neutral way.

  1. Threshold Black/White Tassel Throw Blanket (50"x60") at Target, $24.99
  2. Leaf-patterned Cushion Cover at H&M Home, $12.99 each
  3. Living Colors Aqua Embroidered 6-Piece Queen Sheet Set at Big Lots, $20
  4. Clara Clark Premier 1800 Series 3-Piece Duvet Cover, Queen, White at Amazon, $25.99

Total Price: $96.96
