If you love clean, neat spaces, minimalism could be the design you need for a truly relaxing bedroom. While some enjoy being surrounded by home comforts, others prefer keeping things clean and tidy for a clear and tidy mind. Our bedrooms are designed for relaxing and unwinding, for getting a good nights sleep and resetting for the next morning, so where better to try out a minimalist design? From limited colour palettes to keep things symmetrical, here are tips for creating a minimalist style.
Keep Furniture Simple
The furniture in your bedroom should be simple, both in style and in colour. IKEA-type furniture has been particularly popular for drawers and bedside cabinets for its clean lines and simple white or plain wooden designs, but any furniture that fits that description will work. Beds that are sleek and simple, such as wooden or metal platform beds, are ideal over more elaborate designs. The same goes for headboards – simple wooden and upholstered headboards work best in a minimalist style.
For example, modern headboards from Bed King’s range with a classic and simple style featuring clean lines and symmetric style are perfect for a minimalist bedroom.
While a few bits of artwork or minimalist photographs can complement a space well, plenty of blank wall space will help you to keep things looking neat and fuss-free. This can work in your favour too, by giving more attention to the pieces that deserve it. That painting or artwork you need somewhere special to hang, or that set of photographs you want to make a focal piece out of can all add character to minimalism without sacrificing the neat and simple design.
Limited Colour Palette
For the most part, minimalist designs tend to focus on neutral tones such as whites, greys and blacks, however, the key is actually just to keep things simple and muted. Mid-tone shades are also ideal for minimalism, so if you have a favourite colour you want to implement throughout the space, keep it relatively subdued and it should fit in perfectly.
Add Small Personal Touches
Blankets, photographs, rugs, cushions and other patterns can work well with minimalist designs and if organised properly, can even enhance the space. Your own personal touches, such as textured blankets, patterned rugs or even an abstract painting with a limited palette can fit perfectly. One large but well-chosen piece on the wall or a large rug with a pattern that’s not too busy can work well with the space.
Minimalism, while often thought to be just about keeping things free of mess, actually relies on a balanced space too. Large furniture can work in larger rooms but should be avoided in smaller spaces, while small furniture might feel too small in a large space. If you can’t afford to buy more furniture for your room, think about how things could be moved around to create a symmetrical layout with better balance. Your eyes should move easily through and around the space and it should feel clean and calm.
Free Of Clutter
Last, but certainly not least, minimalist bedrooms should be free of as much clutter as possible. We all have some clutter in our lives and some might be better at organising and tidying it away than others, but a minimalist bedroom relies on a clutter-free environment as much as possible. Store away as much clutter as you can, but don’t be afraid to display collections neatly where possible. Keep things simple and focus mostly on necessary furniture, and you’ll be well on your way to creating a minimalist space.
