If you are looking for a comfortable, simple and relaxing design for your bedroom, then you are in the right place. Contemporary designs will make sure that you get all of these features and more in your bedroom. So, let’s find how to apply a contemporary design for a bedroom.
We will begin with choosing the painting colors; actually there is one factor that may affect your choice in this point which is your bedroom’s space. Both of the dark colors and the light colors can fit with contemporary design, but if you have a small bedroom, may be it’s wiser to stick to the light and soft colors in order to give you a felling of an extra space.
If you love dark colors more and you have a small bedroom, mixing the dark colors with the light ones sounds like a good idea. For example, you can paint the wall behind the bed with dark brown and use a light color like beige for the rest of the bedroom.
Having a natural lighting source like a big glass window is such an important element in achieving the contemporary design to any bedroom. It gives that amazing feeling of freshness and relaxation, when you watch the morning light shining your bedroom, right? For sure you will need extra lighting sources for night, but we will talk about them later in this article, because now, it’s time to talk about contemporary furniture.
The Simplicity and the clean cuts are the main two features that distinguish contemporary designs from any other designs and that is exactly what you should be looking for when you choose contemporary furniture for your bedroom. Choosing little furniture pieces (the necessary pieces that meet your needs), is another point you should consider when you are designing a contemporary bedroom.
Usually the main pieces are the bed, nightstands and the chest of drawer or wardrobe if you don’t have a separated closet. The platform beds and round beds are the most common bed designs you can use to achieve a contemporary bedroom design. Some people even prefer using metal beds and that is okay for sure, as long as it’s simple and sleek, it will fit a contemporary design.
Adding a headboard to your bed especially to platform beds will enhance the contemporary design of your bedroom. For example, you can use the help of wooden headboard with any design you want or you can add a luxurious touch by adding a leather headboard. You could also choose the headboard size that you want, for example, you can go for a small headboard that only accommodates the bed or you can go for a big one that accommodates the bed and the nightstands as well.
Speaking of the nightstands; these two amazing pieces are essential to complete the beauty of any bedroom design and in contemporary design, you will find tons of designs to choose from. You can choose them in a way that matches the entire bedroom design and color or if you love to make it different choose them in another style like glass nightstands for example. The glass nightstands would be a perfect choice if your bedroom furniture is in light color like white or beige.
The rest of the pieces like the wardrobe and the chest of drawer or the dresser should be matching with the other pieces like the bed and the night stands. Hanging a mirror above the chest of drawer would be such a good and helpful idea for you if you don’t like to have a dresser. You can also use the help of a long framed mirror to check your outfit before you go to your work; just make sure to choose a design that fits with the entire contemporary design of your bedroom.
If you are having enough space in your bedroom and you are a big fan of watching TV while you are lying on your bed, then adding a contemporary TV unit sounds like a good idea. Choose the TV unit with a design and color that fit your bedroom. In most cases the TV will be mounted on the wall and the rest of the unit could be wall shelves or floor table with drawers. The size of the TV unit will be defined by the available space of your bedroom, but if you have enough space for both big and small units, you are free to choose the size you prefer.
Choose the blinds or the curtains in light colors and avoid the dark colors to enhance the shooting feeling of your bedroom. Hanging pictures of nature scenes and bright colors like trees and flowers will give a fresh look to your bedroom as well.
Pay special attention to the lighting sources and think about having hidden led lights fixtures and spot lights in your ceiling if you have a gypsum board or false pop design in your bedroom ceiling. This design looks more than amazing and it gives such a relaxing and comfortable feeling as well. If you don’t have such a ceiling design in your bedroom, then a cute modern crystal chandelier will be more than fine.
Adding some chrome or glass floor lamps and table lamps will also enhance the contemporary design of your bedroom and give you enough lighting options to do your daily activates like getting ready for work or reading.
