How to furnish a modern bedroom

Interior trends come and go every year. The bedroom can be difficult to decorate, especially if you share it with your significant other. You need it to be cosy and relaxing while also housing the bulk of your clothing and miscellaneous items – unless you have a dressing room, of course.

The bedroom usually comes after the renovation of the kitchen, bathroom and living room. It’s kind of forgotten about. However, a bedroom can be your safe haven and a place to relax at the end of a long day. A nice bedroom can improve your sleeping pattern and put you in a much better mood when you wake up.

Here are a few ways to furnish a bedroom in a modern and contemporary style.

Scale down, but raise up

Remove any furniture that doesn’t need to be in the room. The modern style tends to be minimal, bright and open. Unnecessary clutter can make the room feel stressful and overwhelming. Scale it back and watch the room open up as you do. If you need extra storage, you can get a high-rise bed and store things under it. Genius!

Go for gloss or mirror furniture

Mirrors can create the illusion of a bigger space. They welcome more natural light and add a wonderful decorative feature. However, mirrored furniture is a nightmare to keep clean – especially when your fingerprints get all over it. Gloss furniture requires less maintenance and has the same brightening effect on your room. Make smart decisions in your home, so it looks good and functions well.

Choose colour wisely

Colour can make or break a bedroom. Neutral tones, like grey, cream and beige, are right on trend right now. However, bold colour is creeping back into the interior industry, and clashing patterns are becoming more popular. Don’t be afraid to add a little personality to your bedroom and use colour to make a statement. You could go for a neutral wall colour and vibrant accessories to mix it up. Neutral rooms tend to look a little like a show home.

Make it comfortable

You need to get the bed right. Test out a few mattresses in-store and online to see which one works for your body. You could opt for a bigger bed if you and your partner share a bedroom. Pair your new mattress with a beautiful bed frame and headboard.

When it comes to the bedroom, it’s all about luxury and relaxation.
