Until you have an apartment, condo or home of your own, you don’t realize just how expensive furniture—and decorating multiple rooms—can be. After exiting college, I bounced from rental to rental in Washington, D.C., Chicago and Manhattan, picking up new hand-me-down chairs, bed, stools and TVs along the way. And when I finally landed in my own home, I quickly realized that this hodgepodge of furniture didn’t a) match or b) resemble anything close to my preferred aesthetic. Time to get shopping, I told myself.
And that’s when I learned about the aforementioned cost of say, a quality couch or bedroom set. Sh*t’s not cheap, people. When it came to filling all the rooms in my new home, well, let’s just say we couldn’t afford the top-of-the-line brands I was lusting after. (Reminder: I now had a mortgage to pay!) But thanks to the likes Wayfair, Hayneedle and other moderately-priced home goods e-retailers, I was able to cobble together a decor scheme for my home that reflected my tastes but was also on-budget. And I’m here to share the love with you!
Headboards are the anchor of every bedroom, and contrary to popular belief, they don’t have to cost a fortune. Here, I’ve rounded up 20 stylish options—ranging from rustic and urban to elegant and refined—that will tie together your guest room, your teen’s re-done space or even your master in a cinch. Oh, and they’re all under $200 for a full-size. Yes, beautiful bedroom pieces really can be afforddable.
