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 our roundup of some of the best cheap (but expensive-looking) bedroom accents. Below, find everything from an inexpensive side table to a made-in-the-U.K. wool rug.

Bedsure Duvet Cover

A bold blue 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.

You could purchase a couple of these and use them as bedside tables in an industrial-style bedroom.

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.

ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser

A less flammable option.

We like the atomic feel of this lamp.

An all-important bedroom accessory: something to get you up on a Monday morning. We like this simple Braun version.

Or, how about this B:ON clock, with a flip-style display and a pleasing bip, bip, bip alarm?

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

This British-made, pure wool rug would look lovely thrown over the back of a chair.

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

VASAGLE Ladder Shelf

You could also get a ladder shelf with shelves — perfect for trinkets, candles, or plants.

Speaking of plants: a dramatic-looking option (like this peace lily) would look nice in a corner.


You’ll need a pot too.

Alternatively, how about a faux fiddle-leaf?

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


A luxe way to display your skin care.

A big rug (at a very small price).

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

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

We like the copper detail on this geometric mirror.

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

A teal-coloured record player to kick-start 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.

And some cute pots for desk-friendly cactuses.

A simple carafe-and-glass set for your bedside.

Vasagle Computer Desk

An actually nice desk you can get without paying Wayfair prices.

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.

Ceramic Flower Vases, Set of 2

These contrasting vases could hold a bunch of flowers, stems, or even look nice by themselves on a bookcase.

Some pampas grass would look striking in one of those vases.
