At the end of a long, difficult day, there’s nothing more relaxing than lying down in a calm, soothing bedroom. We all know how important getting a good night’s sleep is, but do you realize how your bedroom décor can impact how you sleep? Designing a bedroom that is functional, stylish, and calming can be a challenge.
If updating your bedroom décor is on your to-do list, there are many simple things you can do to make your bedroom the haven you’ve always wanted, whether it be minimalist, contemporary, or classic.
1) Hotel Inspired Bedroom Décor
When I say “hotel-inspired,” I’m not talking about the generic, whitewashed feel that was popular in hotels a decade ago. I mean the luxurious feeling you get when you step into one of the chic boutique hotels or uber fancy 5-star hotels that have gained popularity in the last few years.
Today’s version of hotel-inspired features clean lines a la mid-century modern style in small scales and soothing colors that are nothing short of elegant. Just take a look at the soothingly elegant room above. The Miramar Point Reyes Angelico Upholstered Bed by Hooker grabs center stage in a bedroom that feels on-trend and effortlessly timeless. The clean lines add contemporary, minimalist style while the tufted headboard keeps the room feeling like a cozy retreat. The room is uncluttered yet personalized at the same time.
2) Chic Hidden Storage Made for Adults
Beds with storage have entered the adult world. This space-saving furniture is as functional as it is beautiful. Adults need as much extra storage in their bedroom design as children do these days. Beds with underneath storage areas such as rows of drawers let you keep big, bulky items that you don’t use all the time handy so that they are easily accessible when you do need them.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll be sleeping in a kid’s bed. The Hayden Place King Headboard and Storage Footboard by Broyhill Furniture features a gently curved panel headboard complemented by a low rising footboard. The footboard’s spacious storage drawers are perfect for holding extra bedding, clothes, pillows, and other bedroom essentials.
3) Add Visual Interest with Texture
Nothing makes a bedroom stand out like an unexpected touch of texture. Note how the bedroom featured here makes the most of texture in the space. The textured wall and furred bench highlight the beautiful Modern Brando Bed with Tufted Headboard by Universal without coming off as heavy-handed. The bed’s simple, geometric appeal gives the room a simple elegance and charm. The space is filled perfectly, even though it didn’t take much.
4) Go Tonal to Create Space
If you are looking for bedroom décor that creates a perfectly peaceful haven, try a tonal color palette with only one color. This will make your bedroom seem more expansive, expensive and well-put together. It doesn’t have to be a bedroom filled with neutrals. You can go in any direction you wish, the most important thing is to choose a color range that sings to you, since you’ll be spending a lot of time in your bedroom.
The room above, featuring the Oyster Bay Sag Harbor King Bed with Button Tufting by Lexington, demonstrates this principle perfectly. The cool wood finish and neutral-toned fabric on this upholstered bed exert a breezy, calming influence over your bedroom.
These design ideas can make your entire space feel fresh, on-trend, and refined. Whether you add a textured wall or just a few pillows for texture, your space will be the perfect oasis of calm at the end of your busy day.
