How to set up a bedroom under SAR 1,300!

Congrats - you’ve just moved into your first apartment or studio! This maybe a pitstop before bigger things, but we know you want your first bedroom to reflect your style but fit within your budget. Most modern spaces these days come with built-in wardrobes, so we’re leaving it out of this list, but we’ve got your bed, mattress and more covered. Here are our top recommendations for you: 


Bedroom set in dark wood


1. Twin bed, SAR 429 

The Sunrise Twin Bed comes in a simple, clean modern design, that is key if you do not want to a big chunky design taking up all the space in your room. Affordably priced, it gets bonus points for being sturdy too. 


2. Medical mattress, SAR 625

We suggest you splurge on this one item as it will help you sleep better. The Solo Spring Mattress also comes with a 5-year warranty, which means you can happily take it with you on your next move. 


3. Chest, SAR 128  

This Agata chest has three drawers for a fair amount of storage. It can double as a dressing table or even nightstand because of its low height. This is an advantage when space (or your budget) is tight. We love that it comes in a beautiful dark finish to match your bed. 


4. Mirror, SAR  25

Like the other pieces we’ve picked, the Vernal comes in a simple, sleek finish in a dark colour. Tack it up above the Agata Chest to create a perfect little dressing nook. 


4. Wall shelf, SAR 25

Like we mentioned, your room may already have a wardrobe and if you’re lucky, it may be one with a mirror. In that case, why not go for a cute zig-zag shelf instead? You can mount on your wall and display your favourite books or knick-knacks in a stylish way.


5. Comforter, SAR 39

Since most of the furniture we’ve picked so far has been dark, why not go light on the furnishings? We love this comforter in pale blue and white.


That puts your total cost at AED 1,246 – so right on budget. Well done!

There’s a lot of great stuff you can get to turn your bedroom into a haven. Throws, cushions, wall-art, vases and so on. But this is something you can do over time, once you have all the basics sorted. For now, enjoy your new bedroom!
