Styling Your Home: How to Give Your Bedroom a Modern Makeover
We live in a time where a lot of people choose to decorate their home in a vintage style. With thrift shops getting trendier and trendier, you can see why how easy it would be to kit out a home in this way. But if are looking for more modern ways to decorate your home, then look no further! Decorating your room in a modern way is simple as easy to do. You can still get bargains for your furniture and accessories if you look in the right places too. I think that modern is often seen as an expensive option, as you can’t get many items that have been pre-loved. So here are some tips when it comes to a modern bedroom style.
Freestanding or Built-In Furniture
When it comes to contemporary furniture, you have two options. You can have built-in furniture and storage or freestanding. Built-in or fitted wardrobes, for example, are great for a tidy finish of a room. It can streamline the space and make the most of the space available. It can be a little bland, though. So often the best choice for looking contemporary is choosing freestanding pieces. Think of a freestanding chest of drawers or a dress, for instance. They can really add some personality to the room. What is better, or more modern, than injecting some personality to the room?
Focus on the Bed
In a modern bedroom, the bed is the focal point. So make sure that it is as much in the center of the room as possible. It is also a good idea to make sure that nothing else is surrounding it or obstructing it. It is a good idea to have a general declutter of the room too. Then your bedroom can be a peaceful and relaxing haven. Anything to help you get better sleep is a must, right? You should also think about the bedding that you use. Make sure that it compliments the colors that you choose for the walls. Having a mismatch of colors will just get too confusing.
Think of Color
The color that a room is decorated in can greatly affect the mood that it creates. So it is important to think about the colors. Some colors are better for vintage style rooms, compared to contemporary or modern. A deep purple color just screams luxury, which is more associated with a vintage look. To give your room a modern feel, think about more fresh colors, like pastels and creamy shades. If you want to inject a little bit of energy to the room, then feature walls in pink or orange is a great idea. You could even choose to decorate a wall in an ombre style or in vertical stripes. Either of these would create a really modern look. If you aren’t too brave with the walls, then using accessories to add pops of color is the next thing to do. So think about floor lamps, lampshades, cushions, rugs and the wall art and decor.
