How to: Create A Minimalist Bedroom

11 September 2020

If you’re looking to redesign your bedroom, you may want to consider minimalism. This is a popular type of design that aims to create a simple aesthetic in your home. Minimalism is ideal for a bedroom, as it ensures that the space is free of unnecessary clutter or mess, creating the perfect atmosphere to sleep in. Everything in the room will have its own specific function and you’ll quickly find that everything is comfortable and practical at the same time. 

Common features of minimalism include geometric forms, neutral colour palettes and basic decoration. If you’re worrying that minimalism may be a little too sterile for you, don’t fret. Minimalist spaces still have character. You just have to design them in the right way! Here’s some information that will help you to create a minimalist bedroom!

Remove Anything Unnecessary

First and foremost, you need to remove anything that is unnecessary or that has no use in the space. Think Mary Kondo - if it doesn’t spark joy and it doesn’t have a practical function, you really don’t need it. Recycle, donate or sell whatever you no longer need to minimise waste production.

Opt for Blinds Over Curtains

Natural light is important in any room during the daytime. It helps to regulate your circadian rhythms and keeps you alert when you need to be. But as night closes in, you’re going to need to block out natural light. This will help you to wind down and get to sleep, giving your body and mind a chance to rest and recuperate for the next day ahead. Generally, shutters and blinds tend to be the best option for minimalist design. This is because curtains can look bulky and take up too much space. Shutters and blinds can have a more sleek aesthetic. There are countless options out there, so browse different ranges and opt for designs in neutral colour palettes.

Use Neutral Colour Schemes

As we’ve briefly highlighted, neutral colour schemes are central to minimalist design. They keep things looking subtle and are the opposite of overwhelming. Colours to consider include:
  • White
  • Magnolia
  • Cream
  • Mushroom
  • Light Grey

Invest in Clever Storage Solutions

Of course, we all have belongings that we will use on a day to day basis. You don’t have to throw everything away and live with nothing to lead a minimalist lifestyle. Instead, you just need to focus on clever storage solutions. There are countless storage solutions that you could try out to tuck your belongings away out of sight. Some options include:

  • Shelves and shelving units
  • Stand-alone units
  • Underbed storage
  • Ceiling racks
  • Hanging racks on walls

These, of course, are just some of the basics of creating a minimalist bedroom. There are a number of other areas you can focus on to achieve this aesthetic. But the ideas listed out above really can make all the difference! Hopefully, some will come in useful for you!
