Modern Bedroom Design

The best modern bedroom designs are those that achieve a clean and contemporary finish without making the space seem cold and clinical. Unfortunately, this is a lot easier said than done so here are a few tips and ideas to ensure you achieve the right kind of modern design.

Natural Light

Light is an important commodity in a modern design. It makes the room seem spacious, airy and relaxing. So before you even start thinking about colour schemes, furniture or anything else, consider how you can get as much natural light as possible into the room.

Neutral Walls

There are some people that love having bold colours on their walls and will never be told otherwise. However, there’s a reason why most modern bedrooms use whites, creams and other neutral tones – they’re relaxing. These colours combined with the light create the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation.

Modern Glass Wardrobe

Modern Matching Furniture

In large family homes, there tends to be a mish-mash of furniture in the bedrooms as things have been moved around quite often. However, if you really want to achieve that show-home modern finish, then you need to invest in a bedroom furniture set that matches. Furniture that has a high-gloss finish is perfect for a modern design but can be pricey. A wardrobe with a glass door is an excellent choice because this will reflect the light and add to the impression of space.

Colourful Touches

Although bold colours shouldn’t be used on the walls, there’s nothing wrong with adding a splash of red or blue or whatever colour you like in the form of a duvet cover, wall mounted picture or anything else. This can add warmth to the room and a dramatic twist to the modern design.

Plant Life

This is my own personal opinion, but I don’t think enough people consider the idea of having a plant in their bedroom. This can add a real freshness to the room all day long and work nicely against the clean modern finish. However, this isn’t for everyone so lets call it an optional extra.
