How To Create A Contemporary Bedroom

Contemporary design is all about the now. At its core, the word “contemporary” means “of the moment”, highlighting the popular styles of present-day design. Though it’s fairly ambiguous to describe, it’s also very unique as you can notice evident traces of qualities from modernism, minimalism, and other styles, without concentration on anyone in particular.

Another component that sets the contemporary design apart is its versatility. This design is always evolving; today's “of the moment” may look different in a couple of years. At present, this design is defined by textures, clean lines, smooth surfaces, organic silhouettes, and neutral palettes, with the use of metal, marble, steel, and oak, combined with natural textures like wool, polyester, or jute as primary materials.

When it comes to furniture design, you will find that contemporary furniture is becoming ever more popular. They don’t only look sophisticated and sleek, they also offer comfort, convenience, and space. Nowadays, many are opting for contemporary bedroom furniture ideas, because of the many benefits that go with it.

One of which is its variety in shapes and sizes, so whether you have a big or small room, you can always find a piece that will cater to your needs. Similarly, it’s available in numerous styles and designs, allowing you to easily enhance the aesthetics of your room and personalize it in line with your taste. It’s also designed without leaving functionality behind; although it’s made from lighter materials, it’s just as durable as the pieces of furniture made from bulky ones. This also makes it easy for you to move them from one place to another.

Most importantly, contemporary furniture is more cost-effective compared to other types of furniture, so even if you’re on a tight budget or not, it’s easy for you to purchase - as it’s available in different types of materials.

These are just some of its features, so if you’re planning to go for redecoration in your office or home, make sure to pick pieces of furniture that are contemporary, practical, affordable, and visually appealing.

Don’t worry, we got you covered. Here are contemporary style bedroom ideas that will effortlessly bring a contemporary feel to your room:

Less Is More
Contemporary furniture looks best when your room is well-kept. Remember that a tidy room stimulates a tidy mind, and a tidy mind leads to a relaxing sleep.

Keep It Neutral


Neutrals along with gray, black, and white, are the main colors in contemporary design. If your walls are painted in neutral shades, it’s a great starting point to bring in hints of color to your decorations and furniture.

Platform Bed
If you want a bed that will give you both style and function, this is the bed for you. Not only will it give your bedroom a clean and minimalist style, but it can also be a place to store out-of-season clothing.

Mix and Match

Serene Queen Bed, Ambience Bedside Table

You can still make a bed of neutrals looks interesting by using dual-tone bed sheets, or you can even match them with textured pillowcases.

Going In Circles
Play with shapes while decorating your bedroom. You can place a large circular area rug beneath your bed or rounded lamps over your bedsides. It doesn’t come any simpler than embracing shapes for a contemporary look.

Artwork

Linear Bed - Queen, Linear Bedside Table, and The Poster Club prints

Show off your style by adding a statement piece of artwork to your room. This will create texture in your space and add a bit of surprise. Oh, and forget about hanging it on your wall, lean it to create a more laid-back atmosphere.

Mirror Magic
There is no better friend to tiny spaces than a well-placed mirror. If you have a small space, you can make it feel bigger by installing a frameless mirror. Not only that, but it can also be useful when you’re checking your outfit for the day.

Add Greenery
Refresh your room with the living greenery of indoor plants. Whether it’s a large fern or a small potted plant, this will definitely upgrade your room from average to full of life!

Light Leak


Complete the contemporary feel of your bedroom with some spectacular lighting. You can go for lamps that are mounted directly to your headboard or you can double the style factor with a matching duo of designer table lamps.
