Now you’ve moved into your pad, and you have already plunked down most of your budget on your bed and side tables. But you don’t have to settle for a bare mattress!

With a budget of under P1,500—the average price of a typical bed linen set—a comfy and homey bedroom can be created! From pillows to storage, we’ve got you covered in this shopping list that’s perfect for first-time nesters and renters.

Bedding Set: P275

The bed is the biggest piece of furniture in the room, so it should be the most attractive. The problem: bed linen could be expensive, some costing as much as five figures! Beautify your bed with this three-piece fitted sheet set, which clocks in at under P300, complete with two pillowcases.

Reading Lamp: P349

Do you read before you sleep? This table lamp is perfect! It’s a small-but-terrible type of lamp because it’s tiny enough to not crowd the bedside table, but also versatile because of it’s clamp-on end so you can move it from one place to another.

Storage Box: P299

Hide unused items, books, extra bed linen, or prized memorabilia in these fabric-covered, drawer-type storage boxes. Place them under your bed or bedside table to maximize space.

Pillows: P288

A good set of pillows is another budget-eater, some of which cost thousands of pesos. But for the price of only P288, you can have two pieces of these fiber-filled pillows! These pillows are big enough for a malikot-type of sleeper to be comfortable with.

Blanket: P150

Blankets could also get expensive, with most having thousand-peso price tags. These cozy, fleece blankets are fluffy but affordable, and come in all sorts of colors and patterns to match your bedroom’s color scheme.
