Modern Bedroom Design Tips For Trendy Apartments

Thursday, October 02, 2014

People who live in apartments shouldn’t expect anything less than they would in a house when it comes to interior design. Those who do not adhere to certain design rules can make the place feel cramped and claustrophobic, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Apartments offer an affordable solution to people who want to live near to a town or city centre, where the cost of houses can be astronomical. Indeed, they are becoming highly desirable pieces of real estate that don’t stay on the books of estate agents for long. Young couples snap them up as an ideal way to get a foot on the first rung of the housing ladder too. No longer are people in flats looked upon as poor cousins, they are trendy people with an eye on the future.

If you have just moved in and are looking for some inspiration for bedroom designs, you have come to the right place. Here are some modern bedroom design tips for trendy apartments.

Deal With Clutter

Though your room needs to be modern, it also must be a peaceful place to sleep. You can achieve both elements by keeping the place clutter-free. The best way is to build sliding wardrobes at one end of the room. It is strange to think that you can make the room feel more spacious by losing part of it to storage, but it is true. If you use mirrored sliding doors, you will double the effect. The wardrobe will give you plenty of space to store your clothes and stow away everything else that would otherwise be on view. They are simple to install in just one day too.


Paint the walls of your bedroom in a single shade. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, but lighter colours make the room look more spacious than dark ones. In the evening that makes no difference as they both display light and shadows well. Avoid the use of patterned wallpaper unless it is a modern design on one wall only. The patterns cause the space to close in around you, and it will spoil all of your other hard work.


There is a massive range of designer beds from which you can choose. You must decide on that before you look at any other furniture. The measurements of the bed will determine if you have room for a chair, sofa, and dressing table.

Natural And Artificial Light

If the room doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight, avoid using curtains at the windows. Select from the range of window blinds instead; there is something to suit every scheme. Think about roller or venetian blinds for the ultra-modern look.

Use table lamps to create intrigue in the room in the evenings. The shadows they cast create a mood in the room that you can change by moving them to a new location. For dramatic effect, keep them close to the floor so that they can use the furniture to create shapes on the walls.

It is an exciting time when you move into your first apartment. Remember not to let clutter gather anywhere, and it will always feel spacious. Keep only the things you need around you and discard the rest. We are a race of hoarders at heart; always keep that in mind. I hope your project is a success; there is nothing to hold you back now that you know the secrets.
