Our Ideas for Transforming Your Boring Bedroom into a Modern Space

Looking for ways to improve your monotonous and dull bedroom? You’re just at the right spot! Regardless of your style and the interior design scheme you have in mind, there are some tricks that work for most interiors. The following bedroom design ideas will help you improve your bedroom and transform your sleeping space into a haven of tranquillity. From furniture orientation to colour guides, here is what you will need to create the bedroom of your dreams.


Invest in a Nice Bed Frame

Considering the fact that the bed takes up a great part of your space, it is safe to say that it is the focal point in the bedroom – in other words, it dictates its style. Want a modern and sophisticated bedroom? Invest in a cool bed frame. Bed frames are available in a variety of sizes and materials. You can choose an upholstered one made from a luxurious material such as woven tapestry, velvet, or buttery leather, or get a Danish timber bed frame for an organic yet classic look. Currently, the most popular bed frames are the ones made out of solid Mahogany wood combined with a natural open weave cane which creates an elegant coastal feel. Plus, the down comforter you choose, the snuggly blankets, the plump bed pillows, and the decorative toss pillows will all add to the overall look and feel of the room.

Paint the Walls

Cover the walls of your bedroom with a new coat of paint and get a fresh backdrop for your bedroom furnishings. Interior designers say that the wall colour makes the overall impression in a room, so choose a hue to enhance the style you’re after. According to a study by Travelodge, blue bedrooms can slow your heart rate and reduce your blood pressure, which consequently contributes to better sleep. On the other hand, purple is known to stimulate the brain and hamper a person’s sleep by up to 2 hours. Similarly, one easy and efficient way to jazz up a bland bedroom is to add art. Create a visual pop by choosing a piece that either complements or contrasts your colour scheme.


Choose Eye-Catching Rug and Lighting

Besides adding warmth to a room, a rug can also look quite cozy against harder materials. Architectural lighting is another thing that can amp up the wow factor in a bedroom. It provides a sculptural quality and it is a great space saver in smaller rooms.

Add a Bench at the End of Your Bed

Aside from looking pretty, a bench can also be very practical for putting your clothes on or for sitting on it while you are putting on your socks. Style it the way you would a coffee table – stack oversize books and cloche, magazines or a bright throw in case you get cold during the night.
