Did you know that on average, someone with a life expectancy of about 80 years, spends 26 years sleeping? So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that most of our lifetime is spent in the bedroom. No wonder you’d want to turn it into a peaceful haven.
When it comes to designing your bedroom, a lot depends on your personal style. You can choose from whatever style calls out to your aesthetic sensibilities — be it contemporary, old-world traditional, mid-century modern, urban modern, bohemian chic, coastal, industrial, rustic cottage, and more.
Whichever decor type you choose, it should reflect your personality and provide you with a comfortable space where can unwind at the end of the day and wake up energised and ready for a brand new day.
If you’re unsure of where to start, here are seven bedroom design ideas that you can play around with.
1. Contemporary feel
Want a bedroom that’s a blend of trendy and sophisticated? Go for a soft look with abundant natural light making the room feel bright and airy. Pick your theme from a neutral colour palette with plenty of whites, browns, cream, beige, taupe, and tans. Limit the furnishings for an uncluttered space. A bright artwork on a focal wall can add a spot of drama to the room.
2. Tried, tested, and traditional
Do love everything classic? Are you a stickler for calm and order in your life? Then, you’d find a traditional style bedroom perfect. Think: Elegant wall papers, neutral-coloured walls, hardwood floorings in rich tones, antique furniture, patterned rugs and drapes, and last but not the least, high-end accessories and statement lighting such ornate chandeliers.
3. Casually coastal
Drift off every night in the sand and sun sensation and wake up to different hues of blue all around you. You would never again feel the lack of vacation in your life. Adorn the walls with beach-themed art. Get a feel of marine life with anchor and compass patterns on covers. Put up a seashell-style settee in a corner as an accent piece.
4. Rustic cottage
Want to create a warm, lived-in vibe in your bedroom? Here’s a style for you. Open and bright interiors that are full of light and sprinkled with colours. Pastel accent pieces stand out in a neutral base theme. Each piece of furniture adorning this room style has a story to tell — of their journey from their original home to flea markets or garage sales to your home.
5. Bohemian chic
Low-lying furniture, ornate rugs, pieces of custom art brings out your bohemian chic style. The neutral interior is complemented by lots of bright-coloured furnishings and accessories like blankets, throw pillows, tapestries, and canvases.
Flaunt the air con ductwork like a piece of art. Open floor plans and high ceilings are adorned with neutral colours and metallic finishes. For a lazy loft vibe, get custom Australian made beds in reclaimed pallet wood with extra space all around for your favourite reads and other knick-knacks.
7. Minimalist modernity
If modern and minimal is your style, this is the one for you. Focus on simple functionality with clutter-free space and clean lines. Abundant light brightens up the whites, greys, and browns. Natural elements like house plants add a pop of colour to the room.
