Whether you manage to get a full 8 hours of sleep a night or not, it’s estimated that we spend almost a third of our lives in bed. Which makes it so important that our bedrooms are functional but also a room that we enjoy spending time in. No matter what your style, we have a huge range of wardrobes and bedroom accessories to suit all of your bedroom design ideas.
Your bedroom should be a space that reflects your personal style; somewhere you want to relax and rest in at the end of a busy day. It also needs to be a room that is practical, with bedroom furniture that keeps clothes organised and accessories tidy.
Are you struggling to make your bedroom ideas a reality? Take time to think about what you want from your room - whether that's more space, additional storage or more comfort.
Now is the time to gather inspiration, read interior magazines, make Pinterest boards and scrapbooks or perhaps watch TV makeover programmes. You’ll start seeing a trend appear from all the pieces that catch your eye, this will help you figure out your interior design style.
If you have decided on a modern bedroom scheme, there are some simple rules you can follow to create a sleek space. Keep lines simple and straight and introduce bold blocks of colour with monochromes taking centre stage. Keep to smooth finishes on wardrobes as anything too fussy will work against the look you are trying to create; the key is square edges and a plain design - sliding wardrobe doors work well here. Keep things uncluttered and super organised - not only is this in keeping with the modern look, but it will also help make your room more manageable.
If you are looking to create a traditional bedroom, you can afford to add much more detail to your bedroom design. Think about wardrobes with panelling, pelmets and decorative elements. You’ll want to keep to a neutral, warm colour palette - creams, soft greys, or pastels work well to create a timeless feel. Woodgrain works well in traditional settings as it adds a rustic charm that feels homely and elegant. Don’t be afraid to layer up textures or add patterns in a traditional bedroom, but keep to florals, natural pieces or stripes that have a time-honoured look. Steer clear of geometrics, block shapes or anything too artificial.
Bring together the modern and traditional design styles to create a contemporary bedroom. You’ll want to keep the sleek lines and square edges seen in a modern aesthetic, but you can infuse these with the textures and materials usually featured in a more traditional setting. Add metallic accents and woodgrain to give an industrial look, and keep colours neutral or monochrome. Get creative with the lighting and bedroom accessories to keep the room from looking stark but on the cutting edge of design trends.
Creating a classic bedroom scheme that is refined and delicate can be achieved with subtle tones and stylish bedroom furniture. This is a relaxed style full of warm textures such as suede, woods and cosy fabrics. You’ll want wardrobes that add to the aesthetic, with established shapes and panelling. Open storage works well in this design, so think about fitted wardrobes that may have exposed shelving. You can then fill the space with classic hat boxes, trinkets and books. Neutrals are a key base that you’ll want to keep warm rather than cool, but you can afford to play with accent colours in cosy tones, such as deep red, mustard yellows or duck egg blue.
Think carefully about your colour scheme as this will impact the style of your bedroom. You’ll want to choose colours that suit your aesthetic, but also that you like and won’t grow bored of. You may want to think about a base of neutrals that you can then add splashes of colour to, or even different textures to create depth and ambience.
Remember that colour can be added to a room by more than just wall paint. It's worth taking time to consider colourful fitted wardrobes or sliding doors with different panels. There are numerous options and ways to inject a bit of your personality into your room, without colourful walls.
Although small details, the finishing touches to your bedroom are so important, especially if you have worked hard on your bedroom decor ideas to create a specific look. You can choose from a wide range of handles, or you can even go handleless for an ultra-modern sleek finish. Cornices and pelmets are also a detail you will want to consider, especially if you are working on a traditional or classic style room. Dream Doors also has a range of bedroom accessories so that you can complete your bedroom furniture set. Choose from our range of beds, headboards, mirrors, blanket boxes and more.
