Modern Bedroom: Get your zzz's
How to create a modern bedroom where you feel instantly relaxed:
Find a seriously good-looking bed. It's the showcase of your modern bedroom so be sure your bed isn't a snooze. Modern beds come in a range of styles: Sleek platform beds, day beds and beds with storage below are all good picks for your modern bedroom.
Take a stand. Nightstand, that is. The sky is the limit when it comes to choices for nightstands in your modern bedroom. Side tables, storage cubes, shelves and even desks work well as nightstands. οΎ Add more character to your modern bedroom by using non-matching night stands on each side of the bed.
Light it up. Dark modern bedrooms are great for sleeping, but too little light doesn't let you get much else done in there. A bedroom functions best when it has both ambient lighting to set the mood and directed lighting for specific tasks. A few ideas to try: instead of traditional table lamps on your nightstand, consider using a pendant light over it. Also consider using a modern chandelier placed directly over your bed.
Dress it up with a dresser. A key piece to your modern bedroom furniture is a dresser. It's just the thing you need for storing your clothes, and it offers nice space to display modern accessories, too. Before you buy, think about the size, style and material that will work best in your modern bedroom.
Put boring to bed. Making sure your modern bedroom is a serene place to rest is important, but it doesn't mean it has to be boring. Inject a big dose of style, color and texture into your modern bedroom with throw pillows, blankets, wall coverings, accessories or functional seating.
