Minimalist Ideas For Your Bedroom
Setting personal style and aesthetic preferences aside, we believe everyone will agree that the minimalistic approach has reached a high point in the industry of home design– and science gives it even more leverage. A series of studies reveal that cluttered homes induce increased levels of stress and depression. So if you’re feeling a little down and out at the moment, it may be a good idea to do a healthy Marie-Kondo-inspired organization session– starting with your personal space, the bedroom!
When life gets a little tough to handle, we unconsciously neglect our bedroom decor, leading to piles of avoidable clutter that ultimately gets out of hand. Luckily, it’s easy to scale back and return your bedroom to a state of calm and pure relaxation. And these minimalist ideas and tips will give your room the update it needs to help you create a calm and thoughtful space you’ll need after a long day.
Go for Neutrals
Keep your color choice to a few muted shades for a soothing space. While patterns and textures are not a problem, try to make sure that your decor is within the same color family.
Layered Lighting Makes a Difference
Try to layer your lighting with a mix of overhead and wall fixtures. Table lamps will offer focused illumination, while woven pendants cast an eye-pleasing glow on your overall space.
A Minimalist Bed
Simple bedding like white linen sheets and a wool throw will be just what you need to get that minimalist look. You can also make your space feel calm and inviting without much fuss by choosing a low-slung platform bed.
Choose Modern Channel Tufting
Are you thinking of going for the traditional upholstered headboard? Go for a channel tufting instead! It’ll give you a modern take on cushioned bedframes and add texture to the neutral feel of your room!
Keep Furniture Low to the Ground
If you’ve decided to add some furniture to add to your room, make sure to choose the low-slung type to create the impression of a high ceiling. You’ll also find this strategy helpful if your bed is positioned closer to the ground.
Maintain Neat Nightstands
Keep your clutter at bay by putting a small tray or bowl on your nightstand. You can also curate these ‘storages’ by adding a few decorative items to create a vignette.
Tie the Room with a Rug
If you’ve decluttered to your maximum and your bedroom suddenly feels sparse, anchor everything together with a large rug. The rug will serve as a focal point for the room.
Add a Touch of Glamour
Putting a few brass accents in your curtain hardware or lighting can add an instant sparkle to your space! We know you’re aiming for a simple and serene look, but you can always add a dose of style to it!
Texture Over Art
If you’re keeping your walls bare, make sure to add some texture to them. Go for a plaster finish or a shiplap wall. Additionally, you can express texture through beddings and accent pieces, too!
A Magic Touch of Pastel
While white interiors and minimalism go hand-in-hand, it’s not a bad idea to throw in some pastels, too! Pastel colors have a magical effect in a modern bedroom, especially if you’re going for a minimalist look, as your pastel color can become your room’s highlight or focal point.
