Too often, the bedroom is the forgotten room when it comes to decorating. Guests rarely see your bedroom furniture compared to how much they see your living room and dining room furniture, so it makes sense to focus creativity and resources there. But this year, do something for you! Instead of allowing your bedroom to be the land of mismatched furniture from lives past, turn it into the haven you deserve. The latest bedroom design trends are a great starting point.
Top Bedroom Design Trends 2013
Your Personal Sanctuary: Your bedroom should be a place where you can go and relax – where you can escape the world and be in a space that is uniquely yours. Fill your bedroom with things you love, from the furnishings to the flooring to the accents. Be sure to have the right case goods so everything has a place and you can keep your haven free of clutter. Remember, your bedroom should be a space you enjoy when you are awake as much as when you are sleeping.
Keep It Natural: Keeping along with the sanctuary theme, a natural color palette in your bedroom will create a serene atmosphere, plus it will help you reconnect with nature. Consider lighter, earthy tones in your bed, nightstand and other furnishings. Using soft colors for the bedding will support a clean, relaxing decor.
Multi-Tasking Bedroom Furniture: Whether you are looking for more ways to declutter and organize your bedroom or are trying to maximize space, furniture that can serve multiple purposes is just what you need. Consider a storage bed so you can stow blankets or out-of-season clothes out of sight. Or use a mirror on top of dresser to make the bedroom look bigger.
Sitting Areas: More and more people are incorporating mini-sitting areas in their bedrooms, often for reading or relaxing contemplation. If this is something you would like, think about how you will be using the area and what items you will need. In many cases, an accent chair, a small table and lighting will be the perfect start.
We hope these bedroom trends will give you the inspiration to turn your bedroom into a special escape for relaxation and big dreams!
