Creative Bedroom Design Tips For A Minimalist Lifestyle

By Brian, September 25, 2014

I think there is a little bit of personality in all of us that leans towards minimalism. It is the part of you that hates to see clutter, and it drives you to keep your home clean and tidy. Those who become anxious when they are surrounded by mess should strive to keep their lives and surroundings simple.

 

The bedroom is one of the most important places in the home in my opinion. It Is a calm haven where mental stimulation isn’t desirable. The problem is that you can turn it into a sterile environment if you fail to include enough features in the design.

 

We will take a look today, at some creative bedroom design tips for a minimalist lifestyle.

 

Furniture

The furniture takes up the space in the room, so you need to introduce the right pieces. Think about the scale when you choose them; they must be in proportion to the size of the room. Here are a few ideas for bedroom furniture.

 

  • Most beds are the same; it is the headboard that changes the way you perceive them. Keep it plain, or do without one altogether. They stop your pillows falling off the bed, but when you have been without a board for a while, you don’t miss it. Choose a bed that has storage underneath too. Some feature bases that lift up, and others have drawers. It is a cavernous space that will help you to keep your belongings out of view.
  • Keep the dressing table simple. Ornate furniture in dark wood is not suitable here. A large mirror will be beneficial, and plenty of drawers and a cabinet will help you to stow all of your beauty products out of sight.
  • Make room for a couple of armchairs in the room. You might want to sit and read in peace sometimes; away from the rest of the people in the house.

 

Lighting

A bright room is essential in the daytime, but in the evening you need to create a mood. Fit a dimmer switch on the main lights and use table lamps to create highlights and shadows. They come in thousands of simple designs; you will have no problem in finding the right ones.

Use blinds at the windows, because drapes can seem oppressive. Modern units do not block much light when they are open, and the styles are beautiful. Wooden blinds are my product of choice; which style do you prefer? They are easy to mount and replace when the time comes too.

 

The Floor

Consider laminate flooring as the ideal choice for your room. The crisp, clean lines and beautiful grain patterns help to create a feeling of spaciousness that you need here. Some people argue that it is a cold and unforgiving product, but you can soften the effect by placing plush rugs on the floor in strategic places.

 

If you can create the perfect space in your bedroom, you will sleep well, and your anxiety levels will decrease. Relaxation is a vital treatment for many mental health conditions, and you can start by helping yourself at home.

 

Take what you can from my ideas and create a stunning space of your own. Just remember; sometimes, less is more.
