Modern Bedroom Ideas

Modern Bedroom Ideas

Modern bedroom design ideas focus on minimalism and a ‘less is more’ philosophy. So, skip the extra flourishes or frills, modern bedroom design tips call for sleek, smooth lines that blend sophistication, luxe, even a touch of elegance.

How to design a modern bedroom, specifically a small bedroom, begins with focusing on function rather than form (although you can definitely have both). If there’s something you don’t need, then it doesn’t belong there. Consolidating circulation to one side of the room is an expert design tip that will help to maximize the space you do have in the most efficient way.

Whoever said a headboard’s not important must not have seen the MODERN Astor or MODERN Sausalito bedroom collections. (All of us enjoy sitting up in bed to read, watch tv or simply to catch up on social media.) Here’s where a little bit of luxe goes a long way in providing much-needed everyday comfort. Overall: look for simple, basic bed furnishings that don't appear overly engineered.

Dark Woods and Shimmery Finishes

Embrace modern bedroom ideas that emphasize black and white. Darker wood finishes are a must. Shy away from shiny, polished hardware finishes and opt for brushed silver, champagne brass, oil rubbed nickel, chrome, or pewter hardware that’s more in keeping with modern aesthetic ideals.

Need Bedroom Ideas? Modern, Sleek Lines Are In

In keeping with the minimalist attitude, a modern bedroom will focus on straight lines and geometric shapes. A rectangular nightstand has a more modern feel than a night table with, say, Queen Anne legs. For that matter, avoid anything ornate. Clean, straight lines reign throughout a modern bedroom, from the drawer pulls to the headboard to the mirror.
