Modern interior design is developing at a tremendous speed: we strive to make our housing as comfortable, technological, stylish as possible, meeting the daily needs. In this mini-guide – the most relevant trends for bedroom design – 2021: new trends, fashionable design hacks, unbroken decorative techniques.
How does the actual design of the bedroom differ from the interiors of previous years? Photo 2021 of real apartments clearly demonstrate what modern ideas professional designers take note of.
The main comprehensive design trend of recent years. It can be expressed in the selection of finishes, furniture, accessories, textiles. However, worthy alternatives to natural materials are also relevant (“wood-like” wall panels, skillful imitations of natural stone are relevant), and simply references to eco-style (plant prints on textiles, wallpaper with plant motifs, an abundance of indoor plants).
The more pronounced the texture of materials – the more relevant they are. Wood, leather, linen, velvet, wicker accessories – at the height of fashion.
3. Status materials and techniques
Regardless of which style is chosen – timeless classics or laconic scandi-minimalism – in the interior of a modern bedroom there is no place for obvious savings and obvious budget decisions. But unobtrusive, neat references to luxury are welcome (mirrors, gloss, non-ferrous metals, paintings and art objects, “rich” textures – fur, leather, velvet).
Volumetric decoration (various kinds of wall panels, 3D panels), 3D decor, games with space, volumetric headboards (including textiles, leather) are in trend.
5. Functional solutions
In previous seasons, we often observed the designs of “casket” bedrooms, but 2021 brought a novelty: judging by the photo, the idea of a bedroom with a single function has remained in the past. More and more often miniature lounge areas appear in the bedrooms, as well as boudoir corners and home mini-offices.
More and more often, designers tend to surprise us – and use non-trivial materials and decorative techniques in the design of bedrooms. A cashmere ceiling? Why not! Paper decor? Fine! Drapery wall at the head? Already a trend.
Along with bold, unbroken decisions in the list of trends – references to the classics. An introduction to the modern interior of classic patterns, silhouettes of compositional techniques is a great way to expand the scope of style and make the atmosphere more vibrant.
Similarly, the use in the setting of vintage notes, retro motifs.
Dark, saturated, complex tones – the most comfortable trend, a novelty in the design of bedrooms. It is only necessary to choose the right shade – and the enveloping atmosphere is guaranteed.
Among the trends of the year are unexpected color combinations, bold palette ideas.
Roomy storage systems that provide full-fledged placement in the bedroom of everything you need are a pronounced trend, which can be seen in the new works of many designers.
Wardrobes, so popular for several seasons in a row, did not leave the list of trends, but shared their positions with neat, almost invisible cabinets (often built-in, mirrored and painted in the color of the walls).
Antitrends of bedroom interior decor 2021
Obviously artificial plants, synthetic fabrics, frank plastic, low-quality imitations of natural materials – all the fake ones were placed outside the list of trends.
The lack of volume, patterns, textures, shades and obvious monotony give an outdated design.
Modern design is merciless to small spaces: fashion for space, “air” has now touched and bedrooms.
Styles suggesting overt luxury are mixed with more democratic ones; status is now expressed in the level of design, quality of materials and construction work; Crystal chandeliers and large gold frames are found mainly in eclectic spaces. In a word, “expensively-richly” is increasingly becoming a thing of the past.
Purely verified styles, textbook palettes, clearly delimited zones – any strict framework turned out to be out of fashion.
Moreover: modern interior design, in principle, abandoned the hard: “No!” Now his answers to even the most seemingly dubious decisions: “Yes, but …” and “Yes, if …” Under certain conditions and appropriate presentation, almost any materials, design solutions and decorative elements will be appropriate.
Bedroom interior décor trends 2021 and useful design hacks
In light of new trends, it will be useful to share the most relevant design techniques that will help to design a bedroom in accordance with fashion trends.
The versatility and rejection of the concept of tiny bedroom-capsules encourages the widespread use of techniques that expand (or correct) the space.
Will help out:
- bright accents and accent surfaces;
- coloring and lighting, changing the configuration of space, “breaking” it;
- a large number of artificial light and lighting scenarios;
- oversized furniture in the color of the walls, as well as built-in storage systems;
- discreet additional storage (podiums, beds with drawers at the base or headboard).
It will give personality, distract from the dimensions of the bedroom.
Besides relevance in a bedroom, an abundance of textiles also helps:
- adjust, supplement, change the color palette and the general mood of the interior;
- make a large number of textures;
- complement the situation with symmetrical (or asymmetric) elements – depending on the location of the plaid, pillows, bedside rugs.
Multifunctional bedrooms require the use of zoning techniques. This can be both the physical boundaries of the zones (exposed by partitions, screens, curtains), and visual (zoning with color, light).
Chairs, wardrobes or shelving-ladders instead of bedside tables, poufs instead of banquets – multifunctional furniture is relevant, which, if necessary, can act in some other role (for example, as an additional seat or storage space).
