Trendy Bedroom Ideas to Inspire Your Next Makeover


Are you looking to overhaul your snoozing den?

After all, a bedroom is the place where you relax and rejuvenate after a hard day, and spend quality time with your beloved one.

That’s why your bedroom deserves the best transformation that can add to its beauty and functionality.

Keeping this in mind, here we have rounded up some modern bedroom redesign ideas you can use in the revamping of your bedroom.

Pick Subtle Colours:

Instead of going for bold primary colours, use relaxing shades and a soothing palette of monochromatic colours.

Every colour has a psychological impact. For example, blue, lavender or greens are soothing and calm colours. Rich jewel-toned hues help create the mood of comfort and cosiness. You need to use the lighter shade of your favourite colours in the bedroom and living room. For example, you can prefer mauve over eggplant, or pumpkin colour over a tangerine.

Keep the Ceiling Lighter than Wall Colours:

The ceiling is the unsung hero in any room decor. While it gets out of the sight most of the time, it plays an important role in accentuating the space. However, it might be tricky for some people when it comes to painting the ceiling.

Fret not! The “fifth wall” of your room needs a subtle pattern or soft colour. In other words, your ceilings need a slightly lighter shade than those of the wall.

This way, your ceiling will look lower and create the space of comfort and intimacy.

Want to go the extra mile to enhance your ceiling? You can add architectural elements in the form of mouldings or beams. Or decorating paint is also an ideal option to consider.

Tweak the Placement of Your Bedroom & living room Furniture:

The bed is the largest piece of bedroom furniture. To create a relaxing feeling, the bed can be placed so the foot is closer to the doorway than the head of the bed. In large bedrooms, the bed can be placed in the corner for a more intimate look. If you have medium to small bedrooms, you can place it against the door making the headboard touching the wall. In case large living room, sofa beds can be the options there.

Nightstands can be placed on either side of the bed while a tall dresser can be shifted to a corner. A low dresser looks good under a window.

Consider the Trends in Bedroom Furniture:

If you prefer contemporary furniture, consider changing your bedroom furniture at least every decade. If you are a diehard fan of the traditional style, you can stick with the existing or vintage furniture. Or if you have tried both styles, you can choose bedroom furniture that is somewhere in between contemporary and classic style.

Take Care of Storage:

A bedroom should look aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. And storage is one of the important things to meet the latter purpose. However, you like to store the things out of sight to avoid any “eyesore” that can break the look of your bedroom.

Add a roomy bedside table with drawers and doors behind which you can use to store books, lotion, reading glasses and other things. Trunk or a storage bench is a great idea to store extra sheets, pillows and blankets. Headboard with built-in shelves and sliding panels can be used for books and accessories.

Light It Up:

Lighting is a tried and tested way to accentuating the living spaces. When it comes to bedroom lighting, there is a multitude of options to choose from. Here are some lighting options for your bedroom:

  • Fairy or string lights on the wall for creating a “fairytale” like a bedroom. Pendant lights and chandeliers make your bedroom looks luxurious. 
  • Task lighting like table lamps, sconces and wall mounted bulbs on either side of a headboard help you with reading, working or other things. 
  • Accent lighting or wall sconces add to the glow and cosy atmosphere of the bedroom. 

Bring In Luxurious Linens:

Replace your old bedsheets with luxurious and beautiful bedding. You can use gorgeous linens to maximize the comfort of your bedroom. Prefer the sheets that are 100 per cent cotton or linen. Fabrics like soft mohair or cashmere unleash the feeling of intimacy in the bedroom.
