At the risk of stating the obvious, IKEA is massive. Considering the Scandinavian retail giant's extensive (borderline overzealous) inventory—there are 12,000 products stocked at any given time—it's necessary to have a plan of attack in place well before you start adding items to your cart. Even if you adamantly love IKEA, narrowing down its overwhelming amount of product can feel near impossible, especially when IKEA's pro stylists make everything look so Instagram-worthy.
So, in an effort to help you tackle one room at a time, this home editor is breaking down the affordable IKEA products that will instantly elevate any bedroom. From a $10 faux plant that looks surprisingly real to a splurge-worthy beech bench that looks way more expensive than its $39 price tag, consider the stylish picks below editor-approved. Keep scrolling to find out exactly how a home editor makes a bedroom look expensive without spending more than $200 at IKEA.
This beech bench is slim enough to fit at the end of a bed and offers an ideal place for a stack of books. With a modern, minimalist silhouette, it looks far more expensive than its $39 price tag.
Complete with a removable tray, this versatile piece makes the perfect bedside table. It's available in a range of hues, but the sage shade is at once on-trend and timeless. At $20, it's a steal.
No bedroom is complete without a neutral, textural throw draped over the foot of the bed. This one is extra soft and cozy—and looks impossibly chic against classic cotton sheets.

Jump on the paper lantern décor trend with this $18-floor lamp. Light filters through the paper casting a warm glow, making it ideal for creating a soft, cozy atmosphere in the bedroom.
PSA: This soft cotton chenille cushion cover is reversible. One side boasts a classic black-and-white stripe pattern and the other has more of a textured look.
You can't go wrong with a $4 pillow. The ridiculously affordable price point makes it easy to add a pop of color in a trending hue—like mustard yellow—to your bedroom.
Indoor plants have become the hallmark of a well-styled space. If you have a black thumb, opt for faux greenery—this trailing artificial potted plant would look great atop a tall bookcase.
