As we inch closer to September, I felt the urge for a fresh start in my room. Not only because of the changing season, but my room doesn't have a built-in closet so things have been piling up.

Quick Overview

I was in desperate need for some new room decor and organizational pieces, but my goal was to revamp my room without breaking the bank. With a budget of $1,000, I began shopping to transform my room affordably.

If you're headed back to school, moving into a dorm for the first time, or are simply craving a room transformation without the hefty price tag, here are the five products that made all the difference in my bedroom makeover — with a grand total of $969.

  • Timeless design with framed doors and crisp grey colour

  • Efficient storage with built-in clothes rail and shelves

  • 3 spacious compartments provide ample room to neatly tuck away your belongings

  • 19.6" x 47.36" x 73" when assembled

This wardrobe has been a life-saver for me. It elevates my room's appearance and keeps everything in its rightful place, making it an essential component of my room transformation. I won't lie though, putting it together was tricky. Two people are needed, so building this wardrobe isn't a task that can be done alone.

  • Adaptable layout offers rooms for storage, books, or decor

  • Can be used with or without storage cube inserts

  • Supports up to 30 pounds in each storage compartment

  • 30.16" x 15.35" x 29.84" when assembled

Since I decided to let go of my dresser, this 4-cube organizer is now the perfect replacement. It's small (compared to my dresser) yet the perfect storage solution. I put storage bins in each compartment, but I love the adaptability of this piece. This was also very easy to put together, and you can definitely do it alone.

  • Versatile for closets, dorms, nurseries, and so much more

  • Each cube measures 13" x 14" x 13" (fits perfectly in the 4-cube organizer)

My wardrobe wouldn't be the same without these all-purpose cubes. I ordered one set initially, but loved the cubes so much I decided to get another set. The metal rivets make them easy to carry, and you can fold them and put them away if they aren't in use.
