What is Modern Design?

The terms “modern design” and “contemporary design” are often used interchangeably, but they are actually very different:

  • Contemporary design is characterized by soft, stylized architectural elements that create a fresh and warm feel.
  • Modern design is more focused on structure. It consists of straight edges, sleek materials, and open, uncluttered spaces.

Keep these features at the forefront of your mind as you create your modern bedroom!

Select a Statement Bed

A bold bed is a great starting point for your modern bedroom. Select a bedframe in a metallic hue or industrial steel for a sleek look. A canopy bed is a great option that can make a very dramatic statement.

If you don’t prefer a canopy bed, be sure to choose a striking headboard in a high-quality fabric for additional character. Avoid headboards made of wood with intricate detailing, as this style will come across as traditional rather than modern. Your statement bed will serve as the focal point of the room, which you can build off of.

Add an Accent Wall

An accent wall will allow you to add a pop of color and/or pattern to your modern bedroom. The wall that your bed is centered on is the best option for an accent wall, as it can help highlight and complement your statement bed.

 An accent wall can be covered in wallpaper, fabric, or a paint color of your choosing:

  • If you apply a patterned wallpaper, ensure that it’s geometrical, featuring sharp edges rather than curvature.
  • If you apply a fabric, a plush option such as velvet will provide opulence, while a neutral woven linen will offer a more relaxed look.
  • If you apply paint, ensure the color you choose stands out from the neutrals in your color palette.

Recessed Lighting

Modern designs are light and bright. That’s why recessed lighting is the perfect choice for your modern bedroom, as it’s one of the most effective ways to illuminate your space. The physical design of the lights also blends seamlessly within your ceiling for a sleek, sophisticated look that perfectly matches modern design.

For an additional effect, consider installing your recessed lighting with a dimmer switch. This way, you can easily adjust the brightness of the room according to the time of day.

Glass Wall or Wall of Windows

Another way to ensure your bedroom is light and bright is through the use of glass to bring in natural sunlight. If you have an outstanding view from your bedroom, we strongly suggest designing a glass wall to capture it. You might also enjoy the look of a wall of windows, which will provide you with slightly more privacy. No matter what you prefer, including plenty of windows in your modern bedroom is a must. You can also add a variety of window treatments to help you incorporate more style and block sunlight while you’re sleeping.

Tall Ceilings

A master bedroom should feel fit for royalty. To create a feeling of grandeur, ensure you design your room with tall ceilings, approximately 10 to 12 feet high. This will help open up your room and make it feel significantly more spacious. You might also enjoy the look of opulent vaulted ceilings. The crisp lines of this unique type of ceiling can also add to the splendor of your bedroom and provide unique character.

Luxurious Sitting Nook

Modern bedrooms often act as more than just a space to sleep. They can also be used as luxurious lounging areas for relaxation and rest. In your bedroom, consider carving out a space for a polished sitting nook. It should be indented within the wall to designate itself as a separate space.

Within the nook, include an accent chair in a similar fabric or color as your accent wall. Or, choose an accent chair in a similar metallic material as your bedframe. Alternatively, you might prefer the look of a built-in window seat for a more seamless look.
