Whether you’re moving into a new apartment or want to upgrade your current space, the bedroom is a great place to start your home makeover. While you may be full of inspiration, it can be tricky to choose what design scheme or theme will suit both your room and personality.
It’s important to choose a design that lasts beyond trends, as you don’t want to have to redo your room when the next trend comes around. We take a look at some of the most popular design schemes for bedrooms that will never go out of style so you can have the stylish bedroom of your dreams.
Focusing solely on black, grey and white colours, a monochrome design scheme may seem restrictive at first; done right, however, and you’ll have a sophisticated space to enjoy. Opt for white walls to prevent the room from looking overly dark and uninviting, but choose metallic black furniture where possible.
You could, for example, have a black bed frame, white bedsheets and a black throw to pull off the monochrome look without having an over barely dark room.
Those who adore clean, fresh spaces will fall in love with the traditionally minimalist Scandinavian style. Think earthy soft furnishings, little clutter, wooden furniture, plants, white walls and plenty of natural light along with more industrial accents. When shopping for furniture, choose a bed with plenty of under bed storage, such as those available from Divan Beds Centre.
Having a clutter-free space is one of the most important parts of taking on this theme and under bed storage is one of the best ways to hide your knick-knacks. Rid your room of anything unnecessary, filling it with greenery, minimalistic art, different textures and a luscious grey rug instead.
Incredibly welcoming and warm, a rustic theme is easy to achieve on a budget. Rather than splashing out on wardrobes, chairs and the like, you can simply pick some up old pieces from a charity shop and upcycle them.
When it comes to a rustic room, opt for brown earthy hues throughout, wooden furniture as far as possible and patchwork cushions. Soft furnishings with photos of deer, bears and other wild animals are also popular, as are ultra-plush faux fur throws.
Grey and mustard
If there’s one colour scheme that has taken over Instagram as of late, it has to be grey and mustard. While one may think these colours clash, they complement each other wonderfully; a cool-toned grey makes the mustard accents pop.
You’ll want to keep the base grey to prevent the yellow from becoming overwhelmingly bright, as they should draw the eye to certain areas. Introducing mustard cushions, throws and vases is a great way to start, as well as grey chairs and furniture to pull off this trend successfully.
It can be hard to return home to normality after a week abroad – so why not transform your bedroom into a tropical haven? Incorporate leaf-patterned pillows, white linen bed covers, large plants in wicker pots and verdant green hues to pull off this theme successfully.
Think about what reminds you of your favourite destination and incorporate it into the room to transform your bedroom into your little serene retreat.
No matter which theme you choose, make sure to put your spin on it so you truly enjoy spending time in your new glammed-up bedroom.
