We’ve previously hunted out cheap but expensive-looking accessories for your bathroom, and your living room, and now we turn our attention to the bedroom. Whether you’re a renter adding a personal touch (which won’t affect your deposit) or you’re confident enough with a drill to put up some shelves, you can count on the our roundup of some of the best cheap (but expensive-looking) bedroom accents. Below, find everything from a Muji-ish mirror to a made-in-Wales blanket.

A geometric bedspread that will zhuzh up the drabbest of Sainsbury’s bed linen.

Let’s finish off that bed with some textured cushion covers — we’re into corduroy.

A pleasingly herbal candle, with 45 hours of burn time. If you’d prefer a less botanical scent, they’ve also got a grapefruit version.

A neat little wooden clock with (crucially) no ticking noise.

Small enough so you can use it to focus on creating a cat’s-eye.

These solid oak shelves can hold up to 22kg — meaning they’d be more than suitable for plants or books.

A magnetic poster frame to fit that print.

Made in Wales, this pure wool blanket is also available in duck-egg blue, sea green and dusky pink.

Upgrade your spare clothes from “the chair” with a useful ladder rack.

This Muji-ish mirror also has a little shelf, which you could use to store your hair dryer.

We feel very fondly towards this sleep balm, complete with a chilled-out badger.

Another Muji-ish piece, which would make for a wonderful plant stand.

And a plant for that plant stand.


You’ll need a pot too.

Buy this walnut side table from Amazon’s own brand, tell your friends it’s from Clerkenwell’s mid-century hub, Forest.

A luxe way to display your skin care.

Keep the botanical theme going with this understated macrame plant hanger.


This could be used to store stray clothes, bedding, and/or throws.

An artisanal-style trinket bowl for placing your jewellery before bed.

Salt lamps omit a warm, calming glow, plus they look pretty.

A teal-coloured record player to kickstart your new vinyl obsession.

Relaxdays Door Hook Set Of 5

These hooks are low-hassle, and you can hang coats, towels, and bags on them.

A grow-your-own terrarium disguised as a science-lab flask.

A vibrant way to present flowers on your desk — or to store sugar, if you prefer to take tea in your room.

And some cute pots for desk-friendly cactuses.


An industrial-style plant mister for all that foliage.

We’ve featured these velvet chairs before, and they’d look great behind a desk or in a reading nook.

A tasselled throw that would look fab on the chair, the bed, or as a blanket in said reading nook (it also matches the rug).


This definitely wouldn’t look out of place in an exposed-brick studio somewhere in Whitechapel — but it’d jazz up any old bedroom.
