2016 Design Trends to Inspire Your Bedroom Makeover
February 11, 2016
There’s something about the bedroom that makes us feel calm, relaxed, and happy. Perhaps, it’s because the bedroom represents an ending, a sense of closure: long day is over and now you can finally rest and sleep. Or can you?
If your bedroom is becoming a source of stress rather than peace, you better do something about it. In a survey on bedroom trends, over a third of homeowners are renovating their bedrooms because they can no longer stand it. Most homeowners desire for a calming, cozy, and romantic atmosphere. When it comes to bedroom design ideas, homeowners prioritize beauty, sanctuary-like settings, and a design trend that somewhat reflect who they are.
Do you feel like it is time for a change or an upgrade? Does your bedroom still give you comfort and make you feel cozy and relaxed? Maybe it is time to go over the bedroom design trends of 2016 and give your sanctuary a makeover. No need to shop for new furniture or night table, all you need to do is to mix and match what you already have to achieve modern bedroom designs on a budget that will truly give you the good night’s sleep you deserve.
Designer Erinn Valencich said that “gold is coming back as an accent color of choice.” Whether for the entryway, living room, bathroom or bedroom, shades of gold, bronze and rusty metal are leading the way for the color trends for 2016. Gold manages to play up a room and still exude class. It adds a rich tone to a neutral wall paint or wallpaper and also gives a room a nice Asian flare. Just be careful to not overdo it or it will lose its value. A frame, a mirror, a painting or a night table lamp will do.
Pops of Color
In contemporary bedroom designs, sleek furniture and chic accessories are very essential. Usually, solid colors are preferred but design trends today tell us that pop of colors are just as fine. Mix and match colors that appeal best to your taste. Do not be afraid to incorporate the perfect summer colors for your bedroom makeover. It could be a drapery, pillow, or a loveseat.
Give Romance a Chance
Homeowners are renovating their bedroom nowadays to create a more romantic and intimate environment. Choosing a bed mattress that is so relaxing and adding pillows that are almost therapeutic to cuddle are essential to creating a romantic bedroom. Uratex Foam Philippines launched the Perfect Serenity Collection that features specially-designed mattresses for solid support and dreamy comfort. It also has advanced 3D Spacer Fabric on the side panel for a cool and comfortable sleep.
For romantic bedroom decorations, stick with soft hues and delicate fabrics. Draperies, soft lighting, books, and an ornate headboard will also do the trick.
Sleeping in a Cottage
Doesn’t the subtitle make you feel like wanting to hit the sack right at this moment? Cottage and rustic designs may be associated with old, timeworn, and classic but they are definitely among the modern bedroom designs that are making waves in the recent years. Repurposing items is one of the best ways to achieve a casual and inviting environment such as cozy cottage. You could go with wood pallets for your bedframe or headboard, patterned rugs, or Mason jar lights.
Fun with Prints and Patterns
Do not be intimidated with patterns. If you are renting a condo or apartment and not allowed to repaint, wallpapers are back in style so have fun with them. Striped walls or ceilings will give a good texture to modern colorful bedroom designs. If you don’t want it on your wall or ceiling, have it on the floor and pick patterned rugs. Patterned wall decors also work. Be careful to balance the patterns — if your wall is too loud, the chairs shouldn’t be too busy. You can also soften prints with solids. Perfect for this design would be the Uratex AirLite Futon with colors you can choose from — blue, red, and black.
Dark is Back
Dark pieces radiate stunning effects in a good room layout. Mix and match with lighter design elements such as a mirror, a neutral rug or carpet, and soft-flowing curtains. Just remember to keep the lines clean and the design uncluttered so it doesn’t blow up. Contrast and balance are important if you want dark tones to work.
Go for Tropical
Bali is a good inspiration for tropical bedrooms. Wild prints and wood furniture are perfect for this theme. Tropical paintings such that of an island or the forest are also perfect additions. Wrap your pillows in patterned cases and go for soft-flowing curtains. This design will make you feel closer to nature.
Incorporating luxury into the interior design will never go out of style. This is the thing we like most when we are in hotels: everything we need is right there in our suite. For hotel-like conveniences, why not bring in some appliances from your kitchen or bar? An espresso machine or a mini-wine bar will add function and style to your bedroom. A mini ref stuck in one of the cabinets or dressers will also be a fine addition. Boost this design with the Uratex Comfort Zone Latex that will cradle your body in the similar cozy comfort in hotels.
Simplicity is Still Sophistication
Whatever the trends are, one thing that will remain constant is the sophistication of simple and unassuming bedrooms. Neutral and gray tones are perfect to calm you down and give a classic vibe. A comfy mattress, modern headboard, nice sheets, a night table, a painting, and nice drapes or curtains are all you will ever need.
When it comes to modern bedroom designs for 2016, don’t be afraid to go bold. Find a design that is vibrant yet simple. Give it a touch of irreverence to give it its own personal style. For example, mix black with gold or metal. You may also add oddly-shaped pieces or a really strong wall painting.
It’s 2016. No single rule fits all, especially in decorating or renovating your bedroom. It’s your own personal space, after all. Go daring, experiment, and don’t be afraid to try new things. No one will be a better judge than yourself.
