The bedroom is often the most important place in the house. For when your work day has become too much, you go there to rest and regain strength for a new day. Therefore, you want the space to reflect your personality and your needs. Whether your style is modern, eclectic or romantic, our homify experts have a range of ideas available on the platform to help you decide!

Starry skies

Along with a cozy bed, lighting is crucial for the design of a bedroom. Unlike in the kitchen or bathroom, it is more about illuminating certain areas over others. Or rather, to create a comfortable atmosphere where people like to linger. Emulating what you see in the night sky as you are about to drift off into the land of nod, the large star above the bed reminds you of camping trips gone by.

Colour play

When deciding on a bedroom colour scheme, there may be clashing opinions. One may prefer colourful, the other plain. So if you are a couple facing this issue, you will need to find a happy medium. Adding unfixed colourful elements like throw pillows and decorations, lead your more conservative counterpart to think these elements are changeable; leaving the larger furniture pieces as staples. Another idea is to palce wallpaper behind the bed in order not to have too much colour or too many patterns in your face, rather, it is viewed from a different angle meaning you have many different ways to view your room! Win win!

Bunk bed 2.0

Sleeping on a bunk bed is always a bit reminiscent of school trips.. Stashing sweets under pillows and seeing how many people you could fit into one bed. However, now those days are gone, adults can achieve a similar feeling with steps leading up to a loft. or raised platform bed. All the rage at the moment, these beds are the epitome of modern and Scandinavian design.

La la land

Loft living is extremely popular at the moment because it maximises the already shrinking space we have available. We forget how much room a bed takes up, the longest side no matter what size you choose, is always two metres in length. By alleviating the space of such a large piece of furniture, you free it up for other things. In this case, this notion has been reversed. The bed is on the lower floor and the living area has neatly been tucked away over head.

For those who are not a fan of colour in the bedroom, but who also do not want to rely exclusively on white, we suggest a monochrome scheme. Whether grey, black or brown, they are harmonious and always work when repeated in various details such as pillows, wall art or bedside lamps.

Floral time

With floral bedspreads or rugs you can easily bring summer into the bedroom. In general, textiles are a very good way to adjust the design of the bedroom to the respective season—browns in autumn, lilac in the spring and a pink palette in the summer. The combination of wood and glass also makes for a great warm-cold contrast and helps to bring light into the adjoining bathroom.

Swing bed

An absolutely simple and at the same time insanely creative idea: put the mattress on pallets and secure them with ropes to the ceiling. Optically, it fits the loft environment perfectly, along with brick walls and high ceilings particularly well. In addition, you can quite comfortably be rocked to sleep! What more could you want?…

Paper bed

Particularly unusual are these pieces of furniture from cardboard! Bookshelves and bedside tables are one thing… but a cardboard bed? Yes, it works! Due to the clever design, construction, stability and durability are guaranteed—and all without any metal and plastic compounds. A real eye-catcher!
