The bedroom is the one place that should reflect your personal style. Whether you just moved into a property and you’re wanting to modernising your bedroom, or you are looking to revamp it, there are some simple things that you can do to improve. Whatever your budget may be too.
GET RID OF DATED ACCESSORIES
If you’re looking to completely reinvigorate while modernising your bedroom, you’ve got to go for more modern aesthetics. You could go for expensive fan heaters, or you could make one simple alteration, swapping curtains for blinds. These straight drop blinds are a great addition to any bedroom and are more effective than curtains at blocking the external light out, which is fantastic during the summer months if you need to get an early night!
COLOUR BLOCKING FOR STATEMENT LOOKS
Color blocking is a great way to revitalise any space. Color blocking is considered to be the exploration of opposite colors and pairing them together. It is a fashion trend, but it doesn’t have to be about completely contrasting colors, making for a perpetual eyesore. You can use walls combined with a canvas for a strong look, or you can use pillows or throws that clash with your bedding.
TURN YOUR BED FRAME INTO A DISPLAY
Giving your bedroom any modern makeover means steering clear of typical storage solutions. If you want to display artwork or prints, you can get bed frames such as this bookshelf bed frame to exhibit those personal items and pictures.
MODERNISING RUSTIC ACCESSORIES
Rustic accessories can still have pride of place in an updated bedroom, just as long as you modernise them slightly. You can easily use older items and repurpose them. Depending on your taste, you may like to use old deer heads, and repurpose the “animal on the wall” idea with a metallic frame version, which makes the rustic idea look a bit more refined.
BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
If you are looking to bring a more contemporary feel to the space, you could strip back the plaster on the wall to expose its brick foundation. A very trendy look that makes it feel like an NYC loft. Or if you are not looking to put as much effort into it, you can easily purchase high-end wallpaper in a brick style.
It’s a fantastic idea if there is a gap that you need to fill. In the bedroom, the light will always add a great aesthetic element, and installing a custom-like feature is the perfect way to make the most of those small corners that cannot fit the television!
BUILT IN ELECTRICAL’S AND FURNISHINGS
The best thing to do to make your bedroom modern is to remove any loose cables. You can easily use wall-mounted lights and block shelving which can double up as a table. It’s a great way to make your home look in peak condition without much effort.
The modern bedroom needs to be a place where you can relax and unwind, but it doesn’t have to be somewhere for you to compromise your home’s style.
