Have you always wondered how the hotels you stay at have such amazing bedding and wish you could have the same at home. Well a few weeks ago we upgraded to a king and I am never looking back. I knew we needed a king with our growing family and kept putting it off because of the price. I started asking around and doing my research! I am here to tell you you can upgrade too without breaking the bank! Everything I purchased to create my own oasis at home was under $2,000. Yep you heard that right.
I first started looking at bed options. I knew I wanted a tufted headboard and possibly one with a panel frame for a clean finished look. I found this one on Wayfair and couldn’t be more pleased. It was under $500 for the entire bed and I promise you it’s very well made. It also wasn’t hard to assemble (well maybe ask the hubby).
This exact bed comes in 7 colors- I bought beige. The wingback style and detailed nailhead trim gives it a romantic finish.
Once I found the bed it was time to do my research on a mattress. We wanted something firm but still soft. I was overwhelmed at the amount of companies that offered “bed in a box” theory. We ended up choosing Nectar for our mattress! They are currently running a special $125 off + two free pillows. We did this, and their pillows are amazing. I love that this company offers a 365 day trial- which means you can test it for an entire year and send back if you’re not satisfied. We also ordered this foundation. I know some beds don’t require a box spring but this one did. I was the coolest thing when I received my entire king bed via mail 🙂
My previous bedding was white and I never got sick of it. I knew I wanted to keep it light again so I ended up going with this quilt from Target. I got most of my bedding from Target durning a home sale where I received an additional 30% off.
This wood sign from Smallwoods is my favorite- currently on MAJOR sale!
We use this bench everyday to put our shoes on and the boys love jumping off of it. It has a good amount of storage too where I store my sweaters and seasonal items. The bench is from World Market a few years ago. Similar one here.
Here’s the breakdown on how I saved:
Pillows– the king size are on SALE right now for $10
Down Comforter– $75
I now feel like I am staying at a fancy hotel when I go to sleep everynight and so happy I didn’t have to break the bank to do it!
