Key Bedroom Trends of 2014

The bedroom is our sanctuary from the outside world whether we are just looking to get a few good hours sleep or unwind after a long day at work. Therefore it is very important that we put our own personal mark on it, rather than having to be concerned with what others think or if it fits the style of the rest of our homes.

If you are considering redecorating your bedroom then it is important to understand the effects a style can have not only on your room but also on your mood. We all know that different colours emit different energies and the same goes for how you choose to decorate your bedroom. Remember that it is the last thing we see before we go to bed and the first thing we see once we have woken up, therefore you should decorate in a way that you find positive and comfortable.

To help you on your way we have compiled a list of some of the most inspirational bedroom trends of 2014.

Hotel Feel
There is something lovely about walking into a fancy hotel room and having that immediate feel of luxury and thought out design. There are a few key factors to take into consideration when you try and replicate this style, namely a focus on lighting as this is one of the most influential ways of creating and affecting moods. Opt for softer, flattering lighting that replicates a hotel’s and complete the look with extravagant furniture and accessory designs.

The floral trend is one that is not only in fashion this year but also interior design. This trend can easily be incorporated into your bedroom through pieces of art, wall prints and wallpaper. This is a trend that you can easily attempt yourself but if you have the funds it is a great idea to get a professional to create a hand painted piece.

Greys, Off Whites and Soft Blacks
If you go to any interior showroom or trade fair then it is pretty much a certainty that you will come across this colour palette. These are colours that are very popular with consumers at the minute, look for design ideas where these colours are used in combination to compliment each other.

Natural Materials
Make your bedroom more of an inviting environment by introducing natural tones, wood, stone and brick. Choose wooden designs that are made from unaltered cuts of wood as this showcases their natural curves and looks, creating an interesting and relaxing environment. More than just creating a natural look, these styles are very interesting to the eye too.

Danish Cool
The Danish style of bed has become very ‘in’ this year, offering people low, clean and clinical beds that create an immediate look of style and sophistication. It is a look that favours that of minimalism and definitely makes itself the focal point of the room, so keep your room clutter free and choose neutral tones if you go for this look.
