Considering that it is one of the most commonly used rooms in the home, a bedroom should never be boring! Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind if you’re looking to make a few upgrades and give it a bit of a modern twist…
1. Buy New Bedding
Nothing breathes life back into a bedroom quite like a new bedding set will! Not only will it add to the comfort factor, but it will also help to keep things looking fresh and cheery. Now that the warmer months are rolling in, we suggest opting for citrus tones and eccentric designs, making it possible for you to indulge in that summery vibe as much as you possibly can!
2. Invest in a Double Ottoman Bed
The double Ottoman bed is one of the latest must-haves to hit the UK and is now available through Bedstar. The best part about this type of bed is that it is not only gorgeous – it’s functional, too. It has been designed so that the mattress portion of the bed can be lifted and the internal portion of the base can be used for storage, saving you up to 4 times more space in the process!
3. Consider Geometric Furniture
Classic interiors are all about streamlined aesthetics and soft, gentle finishes. However, if you want to go the modern route instead, harder lines and geometric shapes are all the rage. By simply investing in one statement piece of geometric furniture, you can effortlessly transform the entire vibe of your bedroom in a matter of seconds. A side table or geometric shelving are both excellent choices and just as functional as they are pleasing to the eye.
4. Embrace the Power of Wall Décor
While beautiful photographs and paintings always look great, the modern alternative nowadays is to experiment with quirky wall décor. Mirrors with unique designs, eccentric wooden wall clocks, display and floating shelving, faux taxidermy, wall decals and even tapestry and wall hangings are all wonderful ideas. The key here is not to go overboard – as with most things in life, less is more.
5. Experiment with Room Dividers
These were extremely traditional in the olden days, and many would associate them with more of a classic bedroom look and feel. The good news is that they’re back in fashion in 2017 and the perfect addition to any modern theme! The main difference is that the traditional wooden design has been revamped and you can now expect to see alternatives with metal, glass and even silk finishes. Many of these new room dividers also fit in well with the geometric trend as mentioned above, so invest in one and kill two birds with one stone!
6. Give it a Lick of Chalkboard Paint
If you’re really keen to get creative, chalkboard paint will almost certainly fit the bill. Use it to paint one wall in your bedroom (preferably one that won’t have any furniture pressed up against it or any paintings hung up) and you’ll soon have the perfect platform on which to express your artistic desires. Draw or write on it anytime you feel stressed or bored and, as a result, you’ll also be able to enjoy a new, original, modern twist on your bedroom every single day!
Ultimately, modernising your bedroom means making it your own. Who says that you need to follow trends or keep up to date with interior design magazines? At the end of the day, your bedroom should be a space that you can feel proud of. Who knows? You just might start a few trends of your own…
