How To Create The Perfect Minimalist Bedroom
Creating a minimalist bedroom is all about decluttering and simplifying the space to ensure a tranquil sleeping environment and a stress-free start to the day. A minimalist bedroom could take a modernist approach, with fresh whites and creams, or be a haven of neutral colours that still give a calming feel. There are certain steps to follow to create the ideal minimalist bedroom that can be tailored to personal needs and tastes.
1. Choose a Color Palette
Choosing a color palette for your minimalist bedroom is the first step to creating the perfect sleeping sanctuary. Begin by selecting a neutral colour to serve as the base of your bedroom – this will form the backdrop of the room. Stick to a muted colour palette that is neutral and calming, such as creams and whites, or go bolder with dusty pink, terracotta or grey. When planning a minimalist bedroom, more is not always better; try to focus on 3-4 main colour.
2. Declutter and Depersonalize
Decluttering and depersonalizing are essential to achieving a pared-back, minimalist-style bedroom. This can be a daunting process, having to part with cherished items, memories, ornaments, wall art and much more. Start by removing items that don’t belong in the bedroom, such as paperwork, sports equipment, office-related items, spare clothing and any other items that can be placed elsewhere in the home. Then, go through and assess any decorative items. As a general rule of thumb,stick to one piece of art and choose furnishings that don’t draw attention away from the rest of the premium features.
3. Purge Your Wardrobe
When creating a minimalist bedroom, the wardrobe needs attention too. Take the time to go through every item and decide which should stay and which can be donated. The general rule of thumb for purging a wardrobe is to keep only items of clothing that fit properly, are still in style, or can be kept as a keepsake – such as a special piece of clothing inherited from a family member. By decluttering the wardrobe, it will create a sense of calm in the room.
4. Choose Minimalist Furniture and Accents
When choosing furniture and accents, keep in mind what will add to the minimalist feel of the bedroom. To give the bedroom a sleek look, focus on light colours, such as whites and creams, natural wood, wooden accents and raw materials. Avoid bulkier furniture that has a lot of details; this could crowd the bedroom and make it feel cluttered. Aim for a bed and any other furniture that is simple with clean lines.
5. Utilize Natural Light
Take advantage of the natural light that takes place during the morning. Natural light will help to create a minimalist and calm space. Adding extra layer to the window can help filter out the light while still allowing the natural light to come in. This could be in the form of simple curtains or blinds in a muted colour.
6. Put Together Accessories
When putting your accessories together, the fewer the better. Accessories can make or break the minimalist feel of a bedroom. Introduce texture with a low pile rug, layer some cushions for comfort and a unique look or use your wall space for wall hangings and/or floating shelves.
Creating the perfect minimalist bedroom doesn’t have to be difficult – these top tips will ensure a tranquil environment in which to either sleep or relax. Begin by selecting a color palette, declutter and depersonalize, purge the wardrobe, choose minimalistic furniture and accents, utilize natural light, and put together accessories in order to achieve the ideal minimalist bedroom.
