The bedroom is the most private room in the house. There is no need to impress anyone here, but it is important to create a comfortable and cozy atmosphere in which you want to fall asleep and wake up. In this article, we tell you what trends in the design of the private area are waiting for us in the new year and share ideas for designing a functional and fashionable bedroom.
Popular bedroom interior styles 2024
In recent years, the perception of minimalism has changed: from a cold, uncomfortable style “not for everyone”, it has become the norm. Gone are the associations with large empty spaces and one designer chair per several square meters.
Modern minimalism is the conciseness of forms and the elegance of simple lines; natural, eye-pleasing palette; high-quality, mostly natural materials; lack of unnecessary things and clutter.
In the rest room, this concept echoes the European approach to home design: all activity is in the common space of the kitchen-living room, while the bedroom performs its main function and there should not be anything superfluous in it (even a TV !).
Preference is given to natural colors and materials, several types of textures are combined, a minimum of decor. The main role in the room is assigned to the bed – it should be comfortable and functional. Multi-level lighting is required: overhead light, local for reading, contour night lighting. Storage should be hidden, ideally a separate mini-wardrobe for clothes.
One of the main bedroom trends of 2024 is ethnic notes in the interior. There should not be many of them so that the room does not turn into a hall of an ethnographic museum. It is enough to add a few details depending on the main style. What exactly to include?
- Japanese-Chinese motifs – wallpaper prints, decor made of rice paper, ceramics or bamboo, screens, silk textiles.
- African elements – animal prints, fur and leather, beige and brown palette, wooden masks and figurines, wicker decorations.
- Oriental notes – ornaments characteristic of the Arab countries, carpets, multi-colored pouffes, red-orange colors, copper and brass.
Ethnic perfectly complements minimalism, boho and eco-style. Also, these elements can soften brutal loft or grunge.
Scandinavian style, like minimalism, smoothly turns into the category of classics, and therefore will not disappear from the interiors in the near future. It is good in the first place because it is easy to repeat and implement even as part of an economy repair. It does not require large spaces and expensive materials. The main idea is the practicality and comfort of everyday life. Even a small room should be bright, cozy and not cluttered.
To create a Scandinavian bedroom interior design like in the photo below, use the following tricks.
- Calm colors: pastel colors, shades of beige and brown, black, white and gray as a base.
- Bright accents that enliven the atmosphere – it can be bright blue, burgundy, orange, ocher, purple.
- Natural materials, as much wood as possible.
- Natural fabrics, decor from rattan, clay, straw, wood.
- Light neutral finish.
- Simple and practical furniture.
Bedroom colors 2024
Monochrome colors do not lose ground: this option is easy to implement and suitable for all current styles. Monopalette can be of two types.
- A combination of three achromats – black, white, gray.
- Using many shades of one or two adjacent colors – for example, brown and beige.
The main danger of such a color scheme is that the room can look flat and boring. This problem is solved primarily with the help of a variety of textures: the same shade will play differently on soft and hard, smooth and rough, glossy and matte surfaces. Also, a monochrome range can be diluted with a couple of bright accents, and the right multi-level lighting will help. And contrasting dark details will make the space more graphic.
There have always been and will continue to be heated discussions around white interiors – total white can really seem like a controversial decision. But it is not necessary to make the room completely snow-white.
In the coming year, natural materials and light colors are in trend – white can be taken as a universal base and supplemented with other colors.
The main advantages of white in the bedroom
- Will fit into any style.
- Will not go out of fashion in a year or ten years.
- Visually enlarges the space (an indispensable quality in a small room).
- Reflects light, makes the room more airy and bright;
- It goes well with any colors.
So that the bedroom does not seem like a hospital ward, use white as a base (for example, for wall and ceiling decoration) and complement it with richer colors, a cozy texture of wood, and tactilely pleasant colorful textiles. Later, if you want to update the interior, it will be easy to do – just change the details and add other colors to the palette.
Rapprochement with nature in all aspects can already be called a sustainable trend. In urban apartments, there is a lack of greenery, fresh air and landscapes that set you up for relaxation, so there are so many natural variations among fashionable colors.
In 2024, pay attention to the following palettes
- The color of the sand – in particular, inspired by the film “Dune”.
- The colors of minerals are gray, blue, dark green, muted purple tones.
- Soil shades – brown, brown, terracotta, dark red, gray-green, mossy.
Bedroom Design Trends 2024
If you look at fashionable photos of bedroom interiors in an apartment, the headboard immediately attracts attention almost everywhere. And this is quite logical: in the rest room, the bed occupies a central place, and eyes should be riveted to it – and an unusual beautiful headboard will best cope with this task.
You can focus attention on it in different ways, so several directions can be distinguished within the trend.
- Massive headboard-panel – can be made of the same material as the bed frame, as if continuing it, or be part of the wall, thus blurring the boundaries between furniture and decoration.
- Designer product – or vice versa handmade. The most important thing is that it should be a unique author’s creation, which becomes not just a constructive part of the bed, but also a real art object. The effect can be achieved through an unusual shape, textured material, bright color or ornament.
- Accent wall – in this option, the entire wall behind the bed (or most of it) is visually highlighted. The installation can continue the headboard or replace it altogether.
The desire for perfect symmetry came to us from classical interiors, where this principle is the basis, without which it is impossible to build a room composition. Today there is a departure from strict canons, the space of the room is perceived not as a plane for verified drawings, but as a field for experiments and a flight of fancy.
In the bedroom, this trend manifests itself primarily in the departure from the rule of two identical bedside tables. They can be replaced with two different ones, completely abandon one or hang a shelf. The same goes for pendant lights or sconces – they do not have to be combined and present strictly on both sides.
Even the bed can be placed not in the center, but, for example, moved closer to the window or to one wall. At the same time, furniture does not need to be arranged thoughtlessly and chaotically: everything must obey logic and ergonomics. To make the space visually look harmonious (and symmetry is precisely responsible for this), balance the elements: for example, if the bed is shifted to one side, place an armchair, dressing table or flower in a corner diagonally.
One of the main trends of this and next year is separate dressing rooms. Finally, it became clear that this is not a privilege of elite housing – you can allocate a few square meters even in a small bedroom of a typical apartment. In terms of area, such a mini-wardrobe takes up not much more space than a built-in wardrobe.
You can organize such a zone by converting the pantry, if it is adjacent to the recreation area. Or select a part of the room (for example, in the corner) and separate the dressing room with sliding screens. Models made of translucent corrugated glass look especially beautiful.
If the bedroom is narrow and long, the wardrobe will help to adjust the proportions – for example, if you organize it behind the headboard. So the living part of the room will not seem so elongated.
And finally, one more general trend – the pandemic has completely changed the format of work, so now no one can do without a home office. If the apartment is small, it is unlikely that it will be possible to allocate a separate room for him – but you can organize a compact workplace right in the bedroom.
This can be done in different ways.
- Allocate a place next to the bed or opposite by placing a computer desk and chair against the wall.
- Insulate the loggia – organize an office right there.
- If there is not enough space, and there is no balcony, continue the window sill to a small table, organizing a work area by the window.
Why is it important to furnish a trendy bedroom in 2024?
The bedroom is often the favorite room in the house. This is the place where you come to relax and take refuge after stressful and hectic days. The bedroom is the room that breaks with everyday life and brings comfort and comfort. It is a place of relaxation, both physical and mental, which contributes to our well-being. A real bubble of rest and serenity, it is also an intimate space that should be decorated with care.
The hygge trend for a cocoon decor
In recent years, the Scandinavian decorative trend has made a place for itself in our interiors. Evoking comfort and simplicity, this style is perfect for a bedroom. However, we have seen it a little too much everywhere. Today, a new concept, derived from this Nordic fashion is gaining momentum: the Hygge decoration. Coming from Denmark, this trend advocates well-being and comfort above all. The word “hygge” also means “happiness” and evokes the moment when you relax at home, warm, in your cozy nest. It’s a real Danish way of life, insisting on feeling good at home, surrounded only by pleasant, comfortable and warm things.
In conclusion, to live happily, live in a Hygge room! But what are the essentials to adopt this style at home? Be careful, the following will make you want to stay under the duvet…
A pretty light to warm up the atmosphere
The cocoon decor requires softness. To do this, avoid excessively powerful bulbs, and diffuse a subdued light by multiplying the light sources. Accent lamps, lampshades, and light garlands will easily complete a cocooning atmosphere in your bedroom. For a real hygge decor, don’t forget the essential candles, which, if you don’t have a fireplace, will give the impression of being by the fire.
Pastel colors and natural materials
The softness also goes through the choice of colors. For a Nordic decor, favor pastel colors such as white, pale grey, powder pink, beige and sky blue which will delicately caress your walls. Its shades will give lightness to the room and will make you slowly fall into the arms of Morpheus. Mixed with natural materials, such as a wooden table, a woolen plaid, a linen curtain or a cotton duvet, your room will be all dressed in hygge!
Softness of objects for a real cozy nest
Plenty of cushions, big duvets and even more throws! This is hygge. For a soft room like a cocoon, choose your soft and numerous cushions! Do not hesitate to accumulate and layer plaids and comfortable knitted blankets on your bed but also on an armchair or on a side chair, to wrap yourself in it at any time. For a true Nordic interior, there is also softness on the walls with wall weavings or dream catchers, but also in the furniture with velvet stools or fluffy faux fur rugs.
The bedroom in an art deco style
Already trending last year, the “arty” style will continue to seduce in 2024, that’s for sure. If we just mentioned the need to create a restful and relaxing environment for the bedroom, some prefer it bright and energizing, motivating them to get out of bed every morning! The Art Deco style conveys a real surge of energy. It is made up of artistic objects, mixing paintings, posters, drawings, sculptures, vases, bookcases or even designer clocks… The Art Deco bedroom surprises with its variety. Not only does she combine various materials, but also different personal objects that tell a story. Memories of travels or creations of craftsmen… everything sits elegantly, with character and audacity.
The bedroom is meant to be “arty”
For colors, we dare orange, purple, blue and green which give character and character to the space. The 2024 decorating trend relies on colorful and imposing furniture. Large beds, benches and refined chests of drawers with mixed materials for a more beautiful effect. This style is for creative people who like to associate, combine and create a unique and rich universe. 2024 will be the year where we express ourselves, where we exhibit what we love and where we put color in our interior… and especially in our bedroom!
The slow life trend is coming to our bedrooms
Impossible not to mention this decoration trend, which will certainly take on even more momentum in 2024. Minimalism and the fashion of “slow life”, which advocates an ethical decoration and a simpler lifestyle, have not ended to invite themselves into our interiors. The bedroom is also a room that lends itself particularly well to this style of decoration. We want it to be more and more healthy, uncluttered, and natural!
In a desire to go back to basics, the “slow” decoration consists of incorporating elements that recall nature. Among the essentials of a natural and ecological room, we obviously find our very dear plants. On the windowsill, a shelf or a chest of drawers, they will provide a healthy and pleasant atmosphere in your room. For a more advanced decoration, we choose their pot with care. Dressed in glass, wicker or ceramic, they will sublimate your room and give it the look of nature.
In terms of furniture, we favor noble materials, such as wood, and we opt for recycled materials. DIY, flea markets and garage sales will delight your bedroom. For example, you can easily create an original bed with simple wooden pallets. Practical and trendy! Pair it with a pretty eco-responsible bedroom chair to assert the look of your 2024 decor.
Finally, for a “slow” decor, we also forget satin or silk for our bed linen and favor natural fabrics. Linen or cotton sheets (preferably organic) will create a soft, simple, no-frills, and above all eco-friendly universe in your bedroom!
Midnight blue for deep sleep
If the colors serve to decorate, they also have an energy. They are not neutral but act on us and our emotions. It is therefore important to choose the colors that will dress your bedroom, because these can really influence your sleep. Blue is ideal for creating a relaxing atmosphere. It has anti-stress and reassuring properties and brings a cozy and warm atmosphere.
The color of dreams and wisdom, blue rocks and makes you spend sweet nights. We love its nuances and its mixture with soft tones, such as beige or white, which will bring an impression of calm and silence to the room.
What are the blues in 2024 bedroom trend?
We love duck blue or navy blue and their captivating deep shades. These colors, on the walls, the furniture or in small touches, bring a modern and contemporary look to a space. The little darling of 2024 is midnight blue. Aptly named, it has soporific and hypnotic qualities capable of easily putting us into a deep sleep.
Be careful, even if we love blue, a total look could darken the room. We opt for a single section of the painted wall, ideally that of the headboard, to structure the space and create relief or for small touches in the furniture.
Between Scandinavian hygge trend, Art Deco style, simplicity of “slow life” or pretty shades of blue… How do you see your bedroom decor in 2024?
Do you think you can’t turn a small bedroom into an oasis of well-being full of relaxation and tranquility? Today we will prove you wrong! We’ve brought gorgeous small bedroom design trends that have a unique design despite a lack of space.
- Stylish, bright and full of life
Gray and white is one of the most beautiful color combinations for the bedroom as it not only looks stylish but also creates a calm atmosphere to relax in. Adding some pretty soft furnishings like the polka dot bed linen and patterned curtains gives the bedroom a lively touch with lots of personality at the same time.
- Original shelves
In small apartments, there is often not enough space to integrate a separate study. But with intelligent storage space ideas and a tidy, tidy design, it can also find its perfect place in the bedroom. In this example, space-saving, creative shelving ideas were implemented that offer maximum storage space and are used for pretty decoration at the same time. Have you seen the headboard of the bed used as a shelf?
- A minimalist design
As a rule, the less furniture there is in a room, the better it can look. In a small bedroom in particular, you should concentrate on the essentials in order to create an airy, light atmosphere. You can also get advice from a decorator or interior designer.
- Multifunctional furniture
In small rooms, the functionality of the furniture plays an important role. Therefore, when making your choice, you should not only rely on an attractive design, but also consider which options best support us in everyday life. A fantastic option for a small bedroom, for example, is a practical sofa bed!
A practical bedside tables
This nice bedside table looks very stylish and playful at the same time. Here you can store everything you need and want to have close to your bed. You also have enough storage space for a nice decoration.
- A simple setup
Natural materials are best suited to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. In this case we see a simple and functional wooden furniture that furnishes the whole room with a homely atmosphere.
- Scandi chic
The cozy Nordic flair of the Scandinavians is simply unbeatable when it comes to combining modern furnishings with a warm flair. This requires white walls, wooden furniture and accessories in soft pastel colors. In this bedroom, it is the wooden ceiling that adds a special touch and creates a cozy atmosphere.
- Combine bedroom and living area
Open living concepts are no longer just a popular option for one-room apartments or lofts. If you have a little more space, you can combine the bedroom and living area wonderfully. With a pretty partition wall you give the room more structure and get a perfect division.
- Bespoke furniture
In small rooms, the space must be used optimally so that no square meter is wasted. A good solution is therefore tailor-made furniture that is specially adapted to the room structure. In this example, open shelves have been combined with numerous cupboards and even a niche for the bed has been built in. Depending on the planning, a walk-in closet can even be integrated.
- Storage space under the bed
Nowadays, multifunctional furniture makes it much easier for us to furnish small spaces. This also applies to our bed in the bedroom. Here we see a variant with additional drawers under the bed. If you still have some space under your bed, you can also create this storage solution with simple boxes that you put under the bed.
- Small but very elegant
Check out this bedroom! It is a fantastically beautiful example of how wonderfully small rooms can be furnished. Although the bathroom, sleeping area and living room have been integrated into the smallest of spaces, the mix of earth tones such as gray and brown as well as turquoise accents look wonderfully light and lively.
We can’t stop telling you about the many benefits of mirrors. Especially in small rooms, a mirror reflects the light and makes even the smallest bedroom appear larger – regardless of whether it is mirrored wardrobe doors or a wall mirror.
- Natural light
Large windows are an essential factor in creating a bright ambience. However, if you only have a small window or no window at all, you can bring more brightness into the bedroom with artificial light sources.
- Narrow Bedroom
In a narrow bedroom, creative ideas are often needed to integrate an additional work area. We love this idea where the headboard of the bed has been extended to create a mini work station.
In order to really feel good in the bedroom, we need an atmosphere that reflects our personality. Don’t be afraid to combine different influences and furnishing styles. As long as it looks harmonious in the end, you did everything right!
You can also give your bedroom a unique flair with little things. In this case, there are two different bedside tables that give the room something special.
