Bedroom Designs: Where To Start

When designing any space in your home, it’s important to look at the whole picture. This means looking at the room as one cohesive space, while also ensuring that all your functional requirements are met. A bedroom isn’t done with just a bed. When we look at a bedroom as a whole, we can divide the space into separate areas: a sleeping area, a vanity area, a seating area, and an en suite area. In a traditional, open-plan bedroom design, we want these areas to feel distinct but cohesive.

By working with an interior design team, you can bring your vision to life, they can help you take your inspiration and launch it into reality, creating a bedroom space that you love with ease. This includes custom creating some areas of your bedroom design to bring it to life: the right touch of customization to your space according to your style can make all the difference.

Relaxing Bedroom Designs

We all have different ideas about relaxation, so a relaxing bedroom design is going to look different for everyone. The important part is that it’s relaxing for you and cohesive with your home’s style.

However, there are some key design elements to keep in mind when you’re designing with comfort and relaxation in mind.

  1. Neutral tones: Don’t worry, neutral doesn’t mean you have to jump right to cream. When we talk about neutral tones, we’re talking about colors that are more on the muted side. As a bedroom is designed for relaxing, we want tones that calm us down instead of energizing us. Greens, reds, pinks, oranges, and many more can also contribute to a relaxing atmosphere in a more muted shade. These tones can be balanced with darker shades, lighter shades, contrast in furnishing materials such as woods and linens, and the tone of your lighting.
  2. Nature: Adding elements of nature is one of the best ways to turn a space into a haven of relaxation. Windows that look out to lawns and trees, along with indoor plants and greenery, create a breezy, comforting, and natural-inspired space that exudes calm and comfort.
  • Home accessories: Home accessories are needed in every part of your home, and the bedroom is no exception. In bedroom designs, we’re looking to create an atmospheric space in addition to just a visual space. Scented candles and diffusers from ONNO Collection find an easy home in bedroom designs: they’re designed with natural inspirations and provide a greater experience than just an ornament on a shelf.
  • Don’t neglect the nightstand: For your nightstand, you want to focus on the aspects of function and form. Don’t over-clutter this space. You want to keep the areas around your bed calm, clean, and clear. Nightstands are great for lighting controls, an alarm, and maybe a good book to read at night. Many nightstands are equipped with hidden storage, and this is a great way to reduce the visual clutter of your space while still keeping it functional.
  • Assess the lines: As one of the 7 elements of design, the lines in a room lead you to feel a certain way about the space. Sharp lines and curved lines have different functions in different spaces: many like their home offices to use sharper lines, while their living and entertainment spaces use more rounded lines. Adding soft curves into a bedroom’s design is one way to enhance the cozy feel of the space. Rounded headboards, area rugs without sharp corners, and wall art without harsh lines can all contribute to this feeling of calmness. Of course, straight lines can still be used to create a relaxing space when the other elements of design are correctly aligned.
  • Zoning: When space allows, zoning the room into different sections can greatly elevate your bedroom design. The strategic positioning of your bed, couches or armchairs, and vanity area can subdivide your space and help you reinforce solid morning and evening routines. This means you’re not squeezing past your mattress to get the most out of your closet space. Out of all the areas of your home, zoning your bedroom can allow for the most outstanding results in your day-to-day life.
  • Limit your lighting: The temperature and style of your bedroom lighting solutions have a large effect on your sleep quality. Bright, cooler temperature bulbs can make it harder for us to feel sleepy at night. On the other hand, warm-toned lighting creates a cozy and intimate environment, and when used correctly with furnishing textures, can turn your space into a bubble of relaxation.
  • The importance of texture: Texture is another one of the seven key elements of design. In the bedroom, texture has an even more essential role in how we relax. From the linens on the bed to the material of an area rug, we want to choose fabrics for comfort without sacrificing aesthetics. Texture is also an excellent way to add contrast in a muted color scheme: if you’re sticking to neutrals and reducing visual clutter, texture can replace the classic “pop of color” we see in every other space. Scatter cushions, seating upholstery, and the bed frame and headboard can all vary in terms of textural interest.
