A bedroom is a place of retreat where you can sit back and refresh yourself. We decorate our bedrooms in the styles we find refreshing and suitable for this purpose.
However, even the best of decorations may look outdated and boring over time. When your bedroom starts looking tired and dated, it’s not a pleasant place to be. If you are tired of looking at your dated bedroom decor, it’s time to switch to modern updates.
Modernizing your bedroom does not have to be an expensive remodeling or dramatic renovation. Simple changes and updates can also bring a modern look and feel to your bedroom. Let’s look at some easy and imaginative ways to modernize your bedroom.
Install Removable Wallpaper
An instant and easy way to uplift the look of your bedroom is to install modern style wallpaper. Modern wallpapers come in a variety of designs that are as easy to remove as they are to install. Other than modernizing the bedroom, they are a great way to make a statement in the room. Wallpapers can also be used to bring colors and patterns to a simple decor or create accent walls without having to repaint.
Experiment with Texture and Patterns
Whether you have a multicolor palette or a monochromatic color scheme in your bedroom, adding various patterns and texture can give it a modern look. You can achieve this by changing the throws and pillows on the bed or bringing in new area rugs and curtains. Another way to do this is to bring in accent furniture pieces like a couple poufs or ottomans or a bench before the bed. This can add a layer of texture to the decor.
Install Modern Style Lighting Fixtures
Whether your room looks modern or not, it should not look dull. A well-lit room looks more open, airy, and welcoming. If your room looks dull and dark, you should start looking at better lighting options. For a modern look, try opting for latest contemporary light fixtures that can bring visual interest to the bedroom. You can also try layering lights by installing recessed lights in the ceiling and opting for floor lamps and table lamps wherever needed.
Dress Up Your Windows
Windows are often overlooked when decorating or updating a room. While bare windows do aid in lighting up a room, a dressed window is a whole other layer of decorating. If you are afraid of covering up the views form the window or darkening the room, you can go for light or sheer curtains and window shutters. However, a great way to modernize the look of the room is to install custom blinds with curtain panels or bamboo shades. Alternatively, you can also install automated motorised blinds to remotely control the window treatments for a truly contemporary touch.
Incorporate Creative Storage Solutions
Another way of modernizing your bedroom is to invest in some creative storage solutions. A cluttered and busy room makes you feel restless and cramped. Decluttering and opting for alternative storage solutions can give your room a simple, elegant, and minimalist look that is the current trend. Instead of cluttering the nightstand and desk, keep all your clutter in a decorative basket or tray. Use the bed, nightstand and armoires creatively to incorporate more storage space. Hidden storage solutions like under bed storage, etc. keep the clutter away from the eyes and give the room a tidy and elegant look.
