There is no greater excitement and joy than moving into a new home or redesigning your old one. I have always been thrilled when faced with such an opportunity because I get to buy new stuff and create a whole new atmosphere in the house. And this time, it is the bedroom. Our sanctuary, our love nest, the room where the entire outside world simply stops existing. This room definitely deserves special attention while decorating and designing it, so in this post I want you to use your imagination and start picturing your new, modern bedroom. It is definitely time to throw out the old, traditional-style furniture and give the bedroom a more modern tone. Turn on your computer and start typing bedroom furniture Australia online stores to make your vision turn into reality faster.
As much as you want to neglect the fact that a modern bedroom is so much different than an ordinary, traditional style one, it’s there. The bed is different, the layout of elements is different, the bedding is different! And the most important thing, the architectural design of the room is a lot fancier than the ordinary. The thing to remember about the modern vibe in interior design is simplicity: there are no ‘royal rich’ shapes of the bed and the nightstands, no lamps looking like the chandelier was put beside your head, no massive paintings with ‘royal-rich’ frames and similar details. That’s all in the past, and when you browse the bedroom furniture Australia online shops you’ll see that there’s very little of all that in the offer. So, throw all those old elements and start looking for something as simple as possible.
Elements of modern style bedroom
Before you let your mind wander in the eternal kingdom of fabulous and heavenly bedroom designs, be clear what elements you would need:
Modern materials include mainly hardwood for beds and wardrobes, since these are more sophisticated in their look and a lot more expensive. Think solid maple, mahogany, rosewood and similar. You can find a lot of beautifully designed beds made of such materials online. They are smooth on touch and do not have that shiny, lacquered look. For details, metals like stainless steel and iron are often present in their simplest form. Glass is also a good choice for walls.
Stand up and immediately throw away the bedding your grandmother gave you (or your mom, for that matter). I know that you are emotionally attached to it, but if you want a modern bedroom, you need to let some things go. You do not necessarily have to throw them in the dumpster, you just should not use them. The bedding is a crucial element of the bedroom design; it’s a large colour element, it instantly catches the eye and kind of dictates the room’s vibe. So, start by the colour of the walls; are they white with a few frames on them? Which colours are dominant on the frames? If the answer is not white, you know what you need to do: combine the colour of the walls with the most suitable colour for the bedding. Take a look at my example on the photo below.
As you already know, a modern room is all about simplicity and minimalism, which means you should not stuff it with too much things. You may keep it even a little empty even, so that the flow of energy and air is uninterrupted. Plus, you want to be able to relax and turn your mind off when you go in the bedroom, right? For details, look for a chic coffee table made of a wooden lot with a glass surface on top – combine it with two small, modern sofas and place them beside the windows or the glass wall. Decorate the chairs with soft blankets in the same colour range as the bedding, and that is all you need. Make sure the eventual photo frames and clocks are all metallic; you do not want anything cheap like plastic ruining the atmosphere.
If you are moving into a new house, check with the architect the vision he/she has about the bedroom: is the entire space all connected, like one large area for the bed, the wardrobe area and a small bathroom? Or these spaces are all divided? If you want to divide the areas, you can use either glass or decorative stone tiles to create a wall. This is ultra modern and very appealing to the eye. Another important thing, make sure the bedroom faces a southern side so you can feel the sun in the morning. Plus, make sure that side of the wall is made of glass or has large windows on it.
