Curtains, carpets, cushions — even on such seemingly minor things takes a lot of money. We decided to find out how to save on textile materials in the design of the bedroom, and asked advice from the expert.

The bedroom in the first place should be beautiful, so completely abandon the textiles is not necessary. Decide what things you are willing to spend a little more and what I can give.
Focus on the curtains. It is easy to implement, if you choose a fabric with a beautiful ornament. In this case, the tulle is secondary element, and thus suitable textured or plain fabric. This can be found at an affordable price.
Now on the market a large selection of textured fabrics for curtains that are easy to combine. Fabrics are very thin, similar in density to the tulle, but with a different weave. For the first time can do it.
Tip: even the most modest cloth is easy to decorate a variety of ribbons and beads — usually, these decorative elements are inexpensive.
If you focus on the curtains did not work, you can utilize carpets. Usually models are made of natural fibers are expensive, but a compromise can be found on factory weaving.
Or, alternatively, choose carpet mixed fibres. They are made of yarn from a mixture of natural wool with synthetic materials. They are inexpensive, but the quality is much better than carpet of artificial wool.
Bed linen can decorate the bedroom, but not necessary to choose expensive. In the first place underwear should be soft and smooth and does not cause the feeling of “sandpaper”.
When purchasing, pay attention to the material. Ideal — cotton fabric, but usually the kits are not cheap. So you can select a mixture of cotton and polyester is the cheaper option, but not entirely synthetic. Most importantly, that the cotton in the composition was not less than 35%.
That’s what is easiest to focus in the bedroom. Pillows can be found in any price category, and in any case they will look good. If you do not get to decorate the bedroom with curtains or carpets, use pillows.
How to decide what to reject?
- If you dream about the interior in the Scandinavian style. Scandinavians often go without curtains. But love the simple and modest rugs and decorative pillows. With this approach it is easy to save.
- You want the curtains, and tulle, but can’t afford all at once. Do not limit yourself in all things: for starters, order one of the items to make it easier to complete the image in the future. But residents of the upper floors you can do one with tulle.
- You can’t sleep in daylight, but the curtains are too expensive. Instead of full curtains, use a roller, pleated or Venetian blinds. In the future they are easy to replace, and in some interiors this solution looks quite harmoniously.
- You no matter what will be the ledge. It can be made hidden, or to form the window, and not from wall to wall to reduce the flow of the fabric on the curtains.
