Minimalism is in right now, and there’s no better place to experiment with the idea of minimalism than home decor. A minimalist home looks chic and is functional without being over-the-top. A minimalist look is also very easy to achieve for anyone on a budget, because you don’t need a lot to create a stylish home. Minimalism is perfect for bedrooms in particular because it creates a very calming atmosphere that is conducive to sleep. Here are some easy minimalist bedroom decor ideas.
Use your favorite coffee table books as a nightstand.
This is a particularly great idea if your bed is already low to the floor. Coffee table books look chic and undone in a very trendy way. Stack them on top of each other to create a sturdy tower for your bedside lamp and other essentials. The great thing about this is that you can update your room as you purchase new books as well.
Opt for hanging lights instead of a floor lamp or bedside lamp.
Alternatively, you can choose to install hanging lights to save space in your bedroom and create a cool industrial look. Hanging lights create a very homey atmosphere and diffuse light nicely as well, so your room will feel brighter. Because these types of lights are trending right now, you can find a variety of different styles by popular homeware designers.
Keep art subtle and stylish.
Just because you’re going for a minimalist aesthetic doesn’t mean that you can’t incorporate art into your home. To make sure the pieces you choose work well in your space, opt for things that fit with the colors you’re already using, and opt for one or two statement pieces over lots of different smaller items. One large canvas makes the perfect centerpiece for a room that’s otherwise very understated.
Use a rug to add texture.
If you have hardwood floors in your bedroom, you may feel like your room can sometimes feel a bit cold. Avoid this by adding a rug to your space in an understated color, like beige, charcoal, or navy. The texture of the rug will make your room feel more welcoming without being too over-the-top. You can even try to match your rug to some of the tones and textures in your bedspread and pillows to spice things up.
