Master Bedroom Chair Ideas
The style of both the designer and budget chair have channel tufting with a gold base. In the designer style, the shape is straight while the budget is curved.
If you’re wondering about the price difference let me tell you. The designer chair is about $3675 while the budget option is around $860.
The Side Table
Now let’s talk side tables. They’re perfect to add next to the accent chair to create a moment in your master bedroom.
Adding a drink table like the one featured in the budget room is a great place to save money. It has a marble top that contrasts beautifully against the gold base.
A sitting area is great to relax and curl up with your favorite book and cup of tea. The price difference on these accent tables is just under $1590 compared to under $100!
If it’s within your budget splurge on your bed. This is an area where you’ll want to invest in better quality so it lasts for many years to come.
You can change out accent pieces if you get bored but your bed will be with you for the long haul. Both these beds have a similar silhouette and clean lines.
The designer bed features channel tufting that takes it up a notch. An upholstered bed is fabulous for creating a focal point in any style of home.
You’ll be shocked by the price difference between these two modern beds. The high end is just over $10,000 compared to a little over $700.
Lighting or the “jewelry of the room” is a great place to splurge in your bedroom design. An oversized chandelier will add drama and interest.
Both styles have a similar vibe but the budget option is a quarter of the price. If you’re on a tight budget or just starting out Target has you covered.
The high-end chandelier is an investment of just under $2375 while the Target lighting is about $400.
Luxe Faux Fur Pillows
Another way to add interest to your bedroom interior design is with texture and pattern. These faux fur pillows will soften the look while adding dimension.
The designer lumbar pillow is just over $170 while the budget-friendly is just under $60. A big difference I know!
That said either one is sure to make an impact on your interior design.
The Interlude designer nightstand is just so sexy! Those lines are to die for! It features two draws, a white faux linen surface, and a champagne metal frame.
If you don’t have it in the budget the West Elm option is a great alternative. It also has two draws with gold pulls and an open shelf area at the bottom. This contract-grade nightstand is built to last.
There’s a huge difference in price between these two styles. The designer nightstand is an investment of just over $5000 (a pair) while the budget is just under $720!
Insane I know but you’re definitely paying for the original silhouette and materials of the high-end version. From a storage perspective and size, they’re very comparable.
The Master Bedroom Dresser
The price of the designer dresser is super high but it’s made of natural hide! That said it’s also a thing of beauty. Just saying!
If you’re vegan and prefer a more sustainable option the Anthropologie veneer dresser has great lines and style too. Both dressers have gold details for an elevated vibe and a touch of glam.
For those with unlimited funds, the designer dresser is just over $8300 while the Anthropologie option is just under $1600. There’s a difference of almost $6800 which is huge!
Just remember that saying you get what you pay for. This is definitely the case when it comes to furniture shopping.
The bedroom mirror is a great place to save money. Yes, the designer mirror is very pretty but the Wayfair mirror would add sophistication to the dresser or nightstands too.
Not every piece needs to be high-end, so definitely mix and match to get the best bang for your buck. If you’re wondering the designer mirror is about $1200 while the Wayfair style is just under $300.
The Bedroom Bench
Love that both the designer and Wayfair benches have acrylic sides. The budget option is very cute and would add interest to your bedroom decor.
If you’re ok with hide material the Interlude designer bench would look fabulous at the end of your bed. It’s just over $2400 while the Wayfair version is just under $190.

As you can see there are many alternatives to the designer version of this room.
If you have no budget then purchase the pieces that speak to you. If you need to save go for the budget option. Either design would look beautiful and give you a great night’s sleep.
