Contemporary Bedroom Design

There are all kinds of ways you can create a contemporary bedroom design that will suit your individual taste and at the same time, achieve that sleek modern finish. Hopefully this page can provide you with lots of inspiration and useful ideas.

The 3 words that you need to always keep in mind for any contemporary design are:

  1. Light
  2. Spacious
  3. Simple

Light, both natural and artificial, is key to creating a contemporary atmosphere in your bedroom. During the day you want lots of natural sunlight coming in through windows, skylights and through the doors from neighbouring rooms. At night you want the perfect lighting scheme that will help you relax and unwind.

An excellent example of a spacious contemporary bedroom

Space is a precious commodity in any home and not always readily available. However, even if you only have a small bedroom there are ways you can create the illusion of space and also get the most out of the space you do have available. For example, use neutral colours for the walls, hang mirrors on the walls and use high gloss or reflective materials for your wardrobe and cupboard doors. All of these things will make any room seem far more spacious and contemporary.

It’s not always easy to keep your bedroom minimalist and simple when you’re living in it day in and day out. Clothes get thrown over chairs, shoes left on the floor and all kinds of other bits and pieces scattered here, there and everywhere. However, the key to creating and maintaining a sleek modern finish is to plan adequate storage and give everything a home. That way, its much easier to put things away and keep everything neat and tidy. This is imperative for a contemporary design.

    I have a small square bedroom that houses a king size bed that I love. Paid alot of money for the bed and really don’t want to get rid of it. How can I make my bedroom space liveable and comfortable without sacraficing my bed.

  2. Such a wonderful site I have found :) …Im curious as to what kind of bed is that in pic 6 of 7. The bed by the window with the black and white pillows. Would go wonderful with my remodel.
