Here's How to Create a Bedroom That's Up to Date

So, you are ready to create the magazine-worthy modern bedroom of your dreams, but you are not quite sure where to start. Or maybe, you are concerned that, in order to achieve a modern-inspired bedroom feel, you are going to have to break the bank.

The truth is, creating a modern bedroom doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming, or look like something out of a home décor magazine. With some careful organizing and strategizing, and with some modern bedroom furniture pieces you can create a modern ambience and aesthetic in your bedroom in no time and without spending a fortune.

Choose a Simple Bedframe

Since the bed is essentially the focal point of any bedroom, picking out the right one is going to make all the difference in the world. The perfect modern bed will really set the tone for the whole room's atmosphere. Platform wood beds with low profiles or headboards in leather, rattan and wood, are all great choices of modern bedroom furniture and any of these would serve as an amazing starting point for the rest of your décor.

Get Rid of Your Junk

If you are looking to achieve a modern bedroom look, you will have to let your junk go. Go through your bedroom belongings and put all the things that you haven't used in a while or that doesn't have any meaning for you away. This includes photos, collectable items, random wall hangings, and anything of the like. By clearing away these things, you will be making space for the items that really matter.

Choose Neutral-Colored Bedding

Neutral tones like creamy whites, soft beiges, or pale greys are your pat to achieving a truly modern feel in your bedroom. Keep in mind that it is all about getting back to basics – too many crazily-coloured patterns won't give you the relaxed vibe that you are after. Plus, sticking to a neutral palette will allow you to add in splashes or an accent colour later on.

Make the Most of Natural Light

Lighting in a modern bedroom is almost an accessory all on its own. If possible, take away your curtains (unless they are sheer) to allow natural light to come inside your bedroom. This will help make your room feel more open and modern at the same time.

Hang a Piece of Artwork

The idea of covering every centimetre of your walls with photos or paintings in order for your room to feel 'complete' just isn't part of the modern ideal. If you have a mini art collection, try to select a single piece of artwork that you love the most and you will enjoy seeing every time you enter into your bedroom.

Use a Plant to Add a Pop of Green

A well-placed plant in a modern bedroom is an interesting and simple way to add a pop of colour to a neutral room. It is important to place your plant in a way that it doesn't crowd your artwork or vice versa.
