We’re all looking for ways to maximize our style on a budget, but for those who want high-fashion interiors on a dime, it takes some thought and care to do it right.

Interior designer Bernadette Schaeffler says that beautiful rooms don’t have to pull on your purse strings. She offered several great tips to achieving a stylish bedroom on a budget.

My favorite tip is to invest in the most important part of the bedroom: the mattress.

“The only and most important ‘investment’ in the bedroom is the mattress. Spend your money wisely to make sure you get best mattress. To make your bed comfy, top it with soft covers so you can snuggle. Choose fabrics that match the tones of walls; layering bedding accessories is easy to do. Position the bed against the larger wall visually increases the room size. One of the easiest ways to dress up your bedroom is to design a sophisticated headboard. Hanging wood shims, old shutters or doors, upholstered panels or iron gates can make your bed very pretty and set a statement. Hanging photos salon style can make an interesting headboard.”

I totally agree. What do you think?
