Many people will agree that their bedroom is the most important room in the house. After all, this is where you get your eight hours sleep a night (…hopefully). Therefore, it needs to be a room that perfectly emits the feeling of relaxation. Moreover, the bedroom is the ideal place to let your personality shine through. There aren’t many rules in terms of design, especially when contrasted with the likes of the kitchen or the bathroom. If you are considering redecorating your bedroom, this post is just for you. There are lots of fantastic bedroom design trends that have come to the fore so far this year. Read on to discover some of the best…

Girly Oriental

First and foremost, let’s begin with ‘girly oriental’. This trend takes inspiration from traditional Japanese designs, yet you give your bedroom an undeniably girly edge with a pink colour palette. Look for some signature oriental pieces, such as a bamboo chair or something with an Origami-inspired pattern. Yet, keep the room minimalistic and ensure you stick to shades of white, red, and of course pink.

Neutrals and Greys

4 Beautiful Bedroom Design Trends

If you ask someone to describe the word ‘grey’, a lot of people will often deem it to be boring. However, this trend is far from dull. Emulating this trend is simple – stick to neutral colours and various shades of grey. Yet, the effect is astounding. Firstly, you create a place that looks contemporary yet is extremely relaxing. Moreover, by keeping the colours simple you allow various shapes, patterns and textures to come to the fore. Your ceilings and flooring are especially important with this trend. Check out the flooring at Carpet One for some inspiration. These are attributes that tend to be lost when loud and dominating colours are present in the bedroom.

Moroccan Inspiration

You can create a stunning and serene bedroom by taking inspiration from Moroccan culture and traditional designs. The great thing about a Moroccan inspired bedroom is the fact that you can create the perfect balance, i.e. a room that looks glamorous yet is also extremely comfortable. So, how do you create a Moroccan vibe? Begin by painting your walls in a crisp white shade. Once you have done this, you can then bring colour into the room via your choice of fabrics. A mix of bright cobalt blue with dark navy works extremely well. Geometric patterns are bang on trend at the moment and they work brilliantly with this theme, as do pom-pom trims.

Tartan

Last but not least, the final bedroom trend you should consider is tartan. Of course, tartan is a pattern that is not for everybody. However, it is definitely making a massive comeback and has already dominated the runways as of late. Now we see it make the move into interior design. Nonetheless, don’t feel as if you have to stick to the traditional red shade. One of the best ways to use this pattern is to create an industrial vibe. If you take a look online you will see a lot of teal and lime green tartan patterns – a popular adaption of the traditional design. This is an option you may wish to consider.

The Hottest Bedroom Design Trends of 2018

The Hottest Bedroom Design Trends of 2018

Designing the perfect bedroom can be tricky, especially on a budget. The trends change every year, even as often as every season, and it can be hard to keep up. It does give you the option to slowly morph your space into a place that is timeless and entirely you.

The only thing that never goes out of style, however, is being comfortable. Pick a mattress and mattress topper that help you sleep through the night. Some options are super soft and even cooling. Cover these items with any color sheets and make it as fashionable as you like.

Though comfort is critical, there are a few things that we think will continue to be hot in 2018 – muted colors, geometric patterns, metallic accents, and plush fabrics.

Minimalism has been back for a while – we’ve seen it in the rise of industrial design and Kondo-ism, the method of cleaning out your space designed by Japanese author Marie Kondo.

The colors that we think will be in this year are muted colors like navy blue and shades of grey and not the movie kind. Bright, metallic accents will also come back into fashion.

These color schemes are perfect for teenaged sons, who are not always interested in picking out colors that make for a cohesive room design. It also doesn’t show dirt as much as other trendy shades have in the past.

With a dark color scheme like this, you are going to need some accent colors in the room to avoid having it look like a dungeon.

When it comes to those accents, there’s a lot of ways to bring them into the room. Gold, regular and rose, and copper, in particular, will bring color to these otherwise muted colors, and easy to find in all sorts of places.

Nightstands and lamps are easy ways to bring color into the color scheme and show a little bit of fashion sense in anyone’s bedroom design. It’s also easy to add metallics by painting the knobs and handles of your dressers and desk drawers.

Those lamps are also an easy place to add geometric shapes and patterns. Shapes like this add depth to a room without making it too busy, as long as you don’t overdo it. Geometric lamp bases are a lot of fun and add a little bit of extra light to the room. If that’s not enough for you, you can go for patterned sheets, throw blankets, or duvet covers for a splash of fun and color.

In fact, a throw blanket or an accent pillow would be a great way to incorporate the trend of plush fabrics like velvet and microfleece. If you feel like a full overhaul, a textured accent wallpaper might be a good choice for your space.

Of course, all of this comes with the caveat of choosing things that match your own tastes as well as the trends. If you absolutely hate one of these trends, it’s probably best to avoid it. Remember, it’s your space, and you should feel comfortable in it.
