Many of you might be planning of redesigning or renovating your bedroom. But the lack of ideas creates a challenge that you might be struggling to overcome. That is why in Homify is here to give you tips on how to transform your bedroom into a more modern looking space. For redesigning a bedroom, it is not necessary to make big changes. By just altering minor details, you can give your bedroom a whole new look
These changes can include anything from the colour of a wall to flooring, furnishing, and lighting of the room. To find the correct decor items, you can visit any home decor store within your your area. Even if you do not live in the central parts of Singapore, there are still many outlets available on other places that provide bedroom decor materials.
The simplest way to introduce colours and textures to your bedroom is by designing a beautiful wall. It also serves as an elegant background for the rest of the decor. To know how you can make this surface look modern here are a few ideas that we have put together.
The ideal way to decorate walls of your bedroom without much effort is by using wallpaper. This material is available in various designs and prints. Also, it can be customised as per your choice. Apart from this, you can even find several decor ideas on Homify which showcase wallpaper. The basic price of a wallpaper depends on its quality and type. In case, you choose a PVC finish then it can cost you anywhere from 40 to 200 SGD per square foot. On the other hand, embossed and Vinyl designs can be a little more expensive starting from 100 to 250 SGD per square feet.
2. Stone or wood
For those of you who prefer a textured finish using wood or stone to coat your bedroom walls is a great alternative. You can easily find both the materials in a variety of shades and finishes. One can also play with the different elements to create an exciting pattern which will make the room look unique.
3. Wall paint
Providing a contrast to your bedroom is a must so that all the decorative elements can stand out. This can be done by painting the walls of your bedroom. For example, you can create a focal wall by painting the surface behind your headboard. You should use a combination of one dark and light colours to achieve a harmonious interior.
In case you do not want to make major changes on your bedroom walls then accessorizing them is another way to go. Using elements like frames, mirrors, and paintings can add a beautiful touch to your room. Also if you have a small bedroom then using mirrors can make it look spacious and well lit. You should remember to choose modern looking pictures and paintings instead of old fashion portraits.
The main feature of a bedroom is that it should be comfortable and relaxing. That is why while designing the space you should not lose sight of its primary function. However, a cozy bedroom can still look beautiful and full of personality. One of the ways to add warmth to your bedroom is by redesigning its floor. A material that can be used for this purpose is natural wood. Similar to walls a lighter colour wood is preferable in small bedrooms.
Another thing to remember while opting for a wooden flooring is that the climate of the city plays an important role. For cold places hardwood is the perfect option. Whereas, in the coastal or humid areas the same material might need to be regularly treated. Polishing the wood is also a great way to maintain the surface and make the room look airy.
The style of your bedroom can be defined by using proper lighting. To creating a modern ambiance lighting up the floor or the ceiling with LED bulbs is one of the most trending solutions. You can opt for hanging lamps which are way more sleek and stylish than the traditional wall-mounted once. Also, they take less space on the floor which gives you an additional area to move around.
The primary function of modern design is based on its functionality and lightness. That is why combining areas or creating rooms which are multifunctional is a must. It is not only a smart way to design the space but also makes it look trendy. People who are willing to experiment with different possibilities of segmenting their bedroom can achieve not only an original design but also a more modern one.
The two natural ways in which you can segment your bedroom is by merging it either with the bathroom or your dressing area. The thing that makes it comfortable and convenient is that all of these areas are incredibly private and are situated next to each other. By doing so, you can also eliminate the use of permanent structures like walls which in return gives you more floor space.
1. With the bathroom
Merging your bedroom with the toilet does not mean that you have to compromise on the privacy factor. An opaque glass can be used as a semi-closed partition which can not only mark both the areas but can also give you the required privacy. Besides, this partition material does not reduce the natural light which makes the room look bright. Another way to merge the area is by placing the bath behind the headboard wall. It creates a minimalistic style bedroom floor plan. In case, you want to adopt a thoroughly modern design. Then you can eliminate all the partitions and have an entirely accessible bathroom in the corner of your spacious bedroom. However, while opting for this plan, you should keep in mind that proper ventilation is essential for such spaces.
2. With the dressing area
The second alternative for segmenting the bedroom is by using multifunctional furniture. For example, while designing your bed, you can incorporate a full-size cupboard behind the actual headboard. It allows you to use the walls for other decorative purposes. Similar multifunctional pieces of furniture are readily available and can be bought at any home decor store. You can even install open shelves on one of the walls of your bedroom to create a floating wardrobe. To make such dressing areas look modern using strings of LED lights is highly recommended.
