Tips for Creating a Minimalist Bedroom
Creating a minimalist bedroom doesn’t have to be expensive, or time-consuming, or look like something out of Dwell magazine.
Through some careful organizing and strategizing (and possibly looking to a Pinterest board or two for inspiration), you can create a simpler ambiance and aesthetic in your bedroom in no time at all – without spending buckets of cash!Here are tips for creating a minimalist bedroom.
Get Rid of Your Junk
There’s no point in keeping your junk around! Go through your bedroom belongings carefully and put away anything that doesn’t positively make your heart sing. The same goes for photos, random wall hangings, collectibles, and anything else of the sort. By removing your bedroom clutter, you are just making space for the things that really matter.
Pick Out a Simple Bed Frame or Go Frame-less
It makes a huge difference to pick the right bed frame for the particular minimalist vibe you’re going for in your bedroom – since the bed is the focal point of the room, the right minimalist bed frame can really set the tone for the whole space. For a minimalist bed, you can choose from a metal frame, box spring, or platform bed – any of these would serve as the perfect foundation for your décor.
Purchase Neutral-Coloured Bedding
You can achieve a true minimalist feel in your bedroom by choosing neutralized tones (think soft beige, creamy white, or pale grey). Getting back to basics is the key to attaining a Zen vibe – too many clashing, crazily coloured patterns will not accomplish this. Furthermore, by painting your bedroom in a neutral palette, you’ll be able to add accent colours later.
Bring in the Natural Light
In a minimalist bedroom, lighting becomes almost an accessory all on its own with the least amount of furniture, lighting makes a huge impact on the look and feel of the room. Get rid of your curtains (unless they’re sheer) and let as much natural light into your bedroom as you can. It will make the room feel more open, modern, and minimal.
