1. The sofa bed

While having sofas in the bedroom has always been a trend, the new variation is the sofa bed. The sofa-bed system comes in functional and elegant colours which can be customized to suit the interior of your bedroom. This works perfect in guest rooms that also double as offices - day to day the sofa-bed works as a couch allowing plenty of room to move in. Only unfold the bed when you need to!

  • Opt for imitation leather or plain fabric for a minimalist look

  • Go for bold prints or colours to colour-block or create an aesthetically pleasing combination.

  • Place the sofa bed at the end of the bed looking away or next to a window if your room is large.

  • If there is no other bed in the room, go for a 'day-bed' style sofa bed.

  • Use it to read books day to day and when you have overnight guests use it as an extra bed.

2. Organic materials - wood beds

If you are someone who craves the natural, cozy and earthly feel in your bedroom, you can always opt for a solid wood bed design. The combo of a solid wood build for the bed, coupled with green accents, will lead to a fresh and trendy bedroom. You can add more retro furniture in the room to go for a cozy look.


3. Decorate using marble and brass

Using marble and brass in the design of a bedroom will add vibes of luxury and eclecticism. There is nothing more poignant and classical than this combo. Use marble top side tables with brass accessories on top or brass side lamps; brass handles on wardrobes. Or even a faux marble effect wallpaper behind your bed.

4. White interior palette

Decorating the room white is something that is getting trendier. From white painted beds against all white walls, to simple white bed linen, this trend has been spreading like wild fire and that too in the good sense.


5. Get creative with your walls

Some people like to be creative with the furniture of their bedroom while some take their creativity directly to the floors, walls and ceilings. The use of the brickwork and slated walls, interior shutters, and panelling is something we see more often lately and will become bigger in the months to come.

Adding panelling or moulding is also a great way to add character to a contemporary built home. Click here to see a board and batten DIY tutorial.

6. Built-in furniture is back

Using the space better in the bedroom can add value and make the space feel less busy. Consider built-in furniture, like drawers, niches for beds, and wardrobes. The room will feel more spacious and the finish will look more high end.

7. Scandinavian style is still big

Scandinavian decor will continue to reign supreme in 2021 as people love minimalism and the Hygge feeling in their bedrooms. Thinks of an imperfectly made bed with organic bed linen, coupled with bedside tables and picture frames above.

The palette can be off-white and grey with wood accents warming the space. When the nights start drawing in, use candles and cosy throws to accessorize the space.

8. Lofty bedroom decor

The loft style bedroom decorated with large window openings, unique decor components, contrast of textures, and cold shades is something which will add the touch of industrial vibe at its finest. Using exposed brickwork on the wall is very unique and if you cannot go all the way back to the brick, use faux brick facades or wallpaper.

9. Use art to add pops of colour

Decorating the room with a big bed surrounded with artistic pieces and having a color scheme of blue, orange, purple, or green shades is a trendy décor in current times as well. Opt for this trend if you like a bit of vibrancy in your bedroom.

10. Add a wallpaper with bold pattern

If you have a bedroom that lacks vibrancy and colors, wallpaper is the right option for you. You can add patterns and graphics to your bedroom with wallpaper in the tones that suit your interior. And if you are not brave enough to try wallpaper because it feels too 'permanent' these removable wallpaper designs are sure to delight.
