Can you remember the last time your wallet was big enough to account for all your wants? Neither can we. While most of your friends might fault you for having expensive taste, we’re not here to judge—we’re here to help. Furnishing your home for less can be a tricky, especially when you’re decorating a space as personal as the bedroom. For pieces that only look luxe, you’ll find us scouring the home aisle at Target.
By now, you’re well aware that the national retailer is one of our favorite destinations for affordable furniture and decor. Much to our delight, it turns out that even interior designers swear by Target. With a slew of inspired collections made with design-savvy shoppers in mind, the beloved store is a treasure trove of upscale-looking finds.
Putting the final touches on your dorm room? Starting from scratch in a new place? Want to give your bedroom a simple refresh? Because we understand that searching for items that are as affordable as they are chic is a serious time commitment, we did all the hard work for you. From beautifully crafted accent rugs to incredibly sleek nightstand essentials, here are 15 of our favorite Target items worth bringing into the bedroom.
For the bed
Linen Comforter and Sham Set, $119.99
When you sink beneath your sheets at night, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your bank statement. Instead of splurging in pure silk, opt for a more modern, relaxed look (at half the price) with a linen set. Soft, timeless, and incredibly breathable, this breezy option makes a case for going back to basics. While it’s easy to feel tempted to load up on pattern and color on the bed, sticking to a solid color will give you a nice visual anchor for the rest of the room. Pro tip: If you’re a hot sleeper, linen should be your first fabric of choice. Unlike other common bedding materials, this airy option is much more breathable. The only caveat is linen tends to wrinkle, so it may not be the best fit if you like to keep a super crisp bed.
We love a hit of pink in the bedroom, especially when it comes in the form of a shade as enchanting and delicate as this. If you’re determined to introduce texture to the bedroom, this playful, reversible bed set (the other side of the comforter is solid) should be the answer you’re looking for. Note: An exciting splash of color is a great way to spice up a tired, neutral room.
We can’t think of an easier way to upgrade the bed than by simply swapping out the sheets. Available in five dynamite patterns, these organic cotton sheets let you play up your personality without going overboard. If you ask us, this understated speckled print is one that both dedicated minimalists and diehard bohemians can get behind.
Queen Minsmere Caned Headboard, $169.99
It is a sad but true fact that the headboard is the lone, essential bedroom element that all too often goes overlooked. Given its predominant size, however, the right (or wrong!) headboard can dramatically shift the mood in a room.
Want your bedroom to exude the same calming energy of that only found in a tropical paradise? With its distinctive woven composition, this serene, can headboard appears to have been sourced straight from a 5-star resort in the Maldives.
Chase End Table Small Stool, $39.99
When it comes to your bedside table, it is time to start thinking outside of the box. Would you have ever guessed that a standard stool could double as a spot to stack your favorite reads? Whether you’re hoping to achieve that fresh farmhouse feel or go full-on minimal, this staple piece is as straightforward as it gets. Note that this unconventional base can also fulfill its intended function as a step stool, or be employed as a prime landing pad in the living room or entry.
Hillside Side Table, $59.99
Has your storage finally hit max capacity? This two-tiered structure will quite literally double your space. While the top level will prove most handy for your essential nighttime goodies, magazines, and candles, other bedside necessities will fit comfortably below. Although its silhouette is fairly simple, we love how its light-washed faced presents a streamlined alternative to a matte or glossy finish.
Yellow Striped Jute Fringed Rug, $19.99
Want to know what it feels like to walk on pure sunshine every morning? This brilliant yellow jute rug might not get you all the way there, but it comes pretty close. When displayed at the foot or side of the bed, this striped accent rug is sure to stun. In addition to not costing you a dime over $20, you can feel good knowing that this Goodweave-certified rug was crafted by adult artisans who are working to support the education of thousands of at-risk children across India.

The right rug is essential when creating an elevated dwelling. Between its intriguing, geometric composition and muted blush surface, this modern stunner positively radiates style. No matter what combination of aesthetics you adhere to, this budget-friendly pick will quite effortlessly blend with any existing decor and furniture.
Natural Open Weave Basket, $24.99
Bringing small, woven finds into your space is a great way to subtly channel your inner-bohemian. This breezy, seagrass basket—a functional storage find that feels especially organic, given its uneven, rounded form—has captured our special attention. Use it as a substitute hamper or a catch-all for spare throw blankets and other soft accessories.
We don’t come across dressers for under $300 very often, so when we do, we pay attention. With enough room to house all your precious belongings, we’re filing this mid-century-inspired statement piece under “must-haves.” Crafted from solid wood, this timeless (and incredibly affordable) pick is a buy you won’t regret.
Geneva Glass Globe Accent Lamp, $33.24
When your bedside lamp takes on an entirely new life as a sculptural work of art, you know you’ve done something right. Don’t be fooled by its tiny size: This brass and marble orb promises to emit a warm and sophisticated glow quite like you’ve never seen before. If you’re ever lacking inspiration, considering experimenting with fresh shapes. Spheres are just one exciting way we’re currently pushing the boundaries on form.
Marble Accent Lamp – Silver, $33.24
Although lighting is often a forgotten detail, a stunning fixture—be it a ceiling-mounted pendant or creative plug-in sconce—can totally change the look and feel of a room, with just one simple flip of a switch.
If this fixture doesn’t check all your boxes, we don’t know what will. A dreamy pairing to put them all to rest, we’re in total awe of this marble-silver combo—not to mention, it’s sleek, swivel top. Thanks to its sturdy support, you’ll sleep easy knowing that this ultra-chic fixture won’t result in an accidental thump in the middle of the night.
When bedtime rolls around, the last thing we want is a bright digital screen staring us in the face. Of all the reasons to go analog, this retro, rosy pink clock is certainly one of them. A little vintage charm can go a long way in a room as small as the bedroom. Plus, this fun nightstand addition promises to keep you in check when it is time to head out the door.
Not to be the bearer of bad news, but your flimsy $10 college dorm mirror isn’t going to cut it in the real world. Whether helping you triple-check your appearance or framing the perfect photo op, your mirror is more important to your daily life than you might think. Thus, the one you choose to have on display should reflect your personal sense of style. Modern, metallic, and a little glam, we’re big fans of this gold option. Hang it high enough and you can use its bottom ledge as a bonus place to toss your keys, loose jewelry, or other small necessities you use on a day-to-day basis.
Pink Global Throw Blanket, $29.99
If we were forced to sum up our passion for pink in one blanket, this cozy throw would be it. Those that tend toward the eclectic will find that this globally inspired blanket looks best when casually draped at the foot of the bed, or over an accent armchair in the corner of the room. While its abstract diamond motifs give this throw a more sophisticated feel, the fluffy white pom poms lend an added playful touch.
