The two main limitations that can stand in the way of you decorating your dream bedroom are square footage and budget. Unfortunately, if your home more closely represents a cozy, intimate space rather than an expansive, large one, finding the perfect furnishings can be a challenge. Additionally, if you don't have an interior design-savings account to blow on your next project, you'll have to get a bit more creative when it comes to finding pieces that work in even the tiniest and most awkward of spaces.

Although it's a challenge, it's certainly not impossible. Stylish small bedroom furniture at an affordable price point does exist, you just have to know where to look for it. The key is to source furnishings that function just as well as they look. Focus on how much storage a dresser or nightstand will actually provide along with how it will fit into your space.

Remember, just because your room lacks square feet doesn't mean you can't include most, if not all, of the décor and furnishings you've imagined for it. You can find affordable and stylish bed frames and headboards that will work in small spaces just as easily as you can find functional and beautiful dressers, nightstands, and everything in between.
