Every so often, it’s rewarding to refresh and revamp your bedroom decor. After all, our bedroom is our sanctuary, a place we rely on to feel relaxed and at home. After a global pandemic, we have good reason to splurge and take some bedroom inspiration from recent trends and fashions. We’ve spent a lot of time at home and now it's time for fresh new starts.

2021 has seen some iconic interior design movements already. From reconnecting with nature to statement beds and minimalistic designs, we have a lot to talk about. This is your year to celebrate your individuality and quirky style, so read on to discover the biggest bedroom interior design trends of this year. Take some notes, embrace the different styles and make your room sensationally stylish.

1. Minimalistic Design

If you're the type of person who thinks "less is more" when it comes to bedroom interior design, a minimalistic style is for you. With minimalism, spaces are simple, calm, and functional. Bold colours and busy patterns are eliminated, and instead neutral, white, mid-tone shades and moody dark tones are approved. To achieve this look make sure your room is clean and decluttered.

Minimilistic bedroom furniture has sleek lines and no fancy trim. One of our chicest minimalist beds is our Ronney white wooden bed frame. Notice how the frame lines are straight and the wood is a smooth white colour. Minimalism celebrates harmony. So, observe the scale of your bed and the size of your room. A king size bed in a small room will look unbalanced. Whilst on the other hand a single bed will look lost in a large room. Whereas, a small double bed finds a middle ground. Ensure you choose a bed size proportioned to your bedroom to achieve a calm, controlled, and minimalistic design.

2. Statement Beds

A huge bedroom trend in 2021 is a statement bed. If you have a large master bedroom, this is a fabulous interior design idea that can stylishly fill your space. A statement bed will dominate the room and be the main focal point. As soon as you walk through the door, it's the first thing that should grab your attention. When choosing a statement bed consider bold vibrant colours, patterns, and unusual shapes. You want the bed to be captivating and fun to look at. Take a look at our velvet pink Stringer ottoman bed frame if you want a striking and glamourous statement bed.

3. Natural Interior Design

Organic and earthy bedroom interior design trends have become more and more popular this year. Love for the outdoors is being translated into new bedroom fashions. We are living for it! From nature-inspired colour schemes with soft hues of green, beige, and mid-tones, to bedrooms filled with wild plants and vines, what's not to love? There is something about natural interior design that makes it refreshing, cool, calm, and happy.

Take inspiration from nature and fill your bedroom with your favourite plants and flowers, pick soft colours, reduce clutter and allow sunlight to travel through your window.

4. Scandinavian Bedroom Design

Scandinavian bedroom design is simplistic, it’s the perfect blend of form and function. This style concept focuses on clean lines, minimalism, and function without sacrificing artistry. Scandinavian design uses natural materials such as wood, leather, and hemp. It has been influenced by nature, thus, uses natural shapes and elements.

To design a Scandinavian bedroom, accessorise with warm textiles, furniture should combine wood and metal, focus on a neutral colour scheme and decorate with plants. To enhance this minimalist design, make sure the room is decluttered. A storage bed could help you achieve this look.

5. Nordic Bedroom Design

Nordic aesthetic has been around since post-World War II but has recently been making a comeback in the world of interior design. It is very closely linked to Scandinavian style as they are both rustic, contemporary, modern yet still traditional. However, the one key difference is that Nordic-style concentrates more on comfort.

To create a Nordic-infused bedroom, you can use unvarnished woods, caramel leather headboards, and wool-like rugs. Colour schemes are very much white and off-white tones followed by soft shades of grey, beige, and sky blue. Pops of colour should be added through bedroom accessories such as rugs and cushions.

6. Wall Panelling

Wall panelling is a huge bedroom interior design trend of 2021. This style will also look great in living rooms, bathrooms, and hallways. If you want a simple yet sophisticated interior, wall panelling or cladding is the perfect addition to your room. And if you’re handy with a set of tools, this is a look you can achieve yourself at a very low cost. Don’t be fooled here, the overall contemporary yet traditional style of wall panelling may not be expensive, but it will make a room look upscale and extravagant. It will establish a luxury bedroom design with depth and tranquility.

7. Boho Chic

Boho décor, otherwise known as bohemian style, is unconventional, quirky, and full of colour. Boho chic creates a cosy atmosphere and a place where you will feel comfortable just chilling, reading a book, or listening to music. To forge a bohemian bedroom, play around with texture, pattern, and warm colours such as red, orange, brown, and yellow. There are no strict rules, this style is very relaxed and shares elements from most interior design trends. In a boho chic bedroom, you will find vintage furniture, plants, throws, cushions, and natural materials including bamboo and wicker, plus wall hangings.

8. Upholstered Headboards

Large upholstered headboards have made a comeback this year, and the bigger the better. Go for bold shapes and patterns in luxurious fabrics to transform your bedroom. Headboards are a thrifty way of remodeling a room and keeping up to date with the latest bedroom interior design trends. This is because the simple addition of a headboard can change the whole dynamic of a room without redecorating the walls.
