Our bedrooms serve as both our morning motivators and nighttime retreats – a haven from the chaos of our daily lives. Considering the significant time we spend in this space, the overall vibe matters, and it’s crucial to deliberate on the design, styles, and colours that make up our bedroom environment.
If you’re contemplating a fresh start for your room in the upcoming year, we’re exploring the bedroom trends for 2024. We’ve also thrown in some modern wardrobe ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Keep reading to discover what’s having a moment next year.
1. Easygoing shades of blue
As one of the prevailing paint shades for 2024, it’s no surprise that blue is emerging as a prominent choice for bedrooms. Linked with numerous positive qualities, including its renowned calming effect, blue makes an ideal option for fostering a restful night’s sleep.
If an all-blue palette isn’t for you, think about mixing neutral walls with fitted furniture in this shade to create a high-contrast space. Our Bella Matt Indigo Blue Elland is an elegant choice, and these modern wardrobes can be complemented with matching furniture like a chest of drawers.
2. 70’s inspired design
Time to revive the earthy vibes of the 1970s in your bedroom! Shake off the dust from those flares and let this nostalgic decade inspire a retro charm in your space. The allure of the ’70s interior trend lies in its adaptability – no need to recreate the entire era in your bedroom. Instead, select your preferred elements and seamlessly merge them with contemporary textures and colours for an authentically stylish appearance.
During this era, grounded tones took centre stage, incorporating colours like beige, rust, avocado, mustard yellow, and brown. These hues come together harmoniously in patterns and solid designs, creating a warm, inviting aesthetic that defines the period. Now, if you’re wondering about the best modern wardrobes for the ’70s look, look no further than our Bella Matt Sage Green Richmond.
3. Striking headboards
The focal point of your bedroom design is undoubtedly your bed, and let’s not forget the significance of the headboard. Recently, there has been a notable increase in online searches for “headboard design.” Statement headboards offer a unique opportunity to inject individual style and personality into your bedroom. If your bed is still without one, consider having one custom-made.
4. Colours of Mother Nature
In 2024, we’re looking forward to a more modern and lively embrace of colour. Forget grey-based neutrals – they’re making way for warmer, yellow-based shades for a subtle yet calming effect. What’s especially nice about these natural hues is how they interact with natural light. As the day unfolds, you might notice hints of cheerful pink and green undertones, gradually transforming into cosy peaches and yellows as night sets in. This is quite fitting, considering Pantone’s Peach Fuzz is their Colour of the Year for 2024.
In addition to embracing natural colours, there’s still a growing attraction towards materials sourced from nature. Noteworthy among the trending materials are bamboo, rattan, and wood, which are very easy to style. Simply pair your laid-back natural scheme with white wardrobes or wood versions like our Valore Warm Walnut.
5. Feature walls
The concept of a feature wall, once popular in the early Noughties, is making a strong comeback as a notable bedroom trend for 2024. Incorporating a feature wall in bedrooms is not just a visual choice; it serves as a practical anchor for the overall room design. What’s intriguing is that this feature also offers a clever way to create the illusion of a more expansive space, especially when utilising paint.
Vibrant patterns or textures can effectively enhance feature walls, with the crucial element being a distinct contrast from the other walls, achieved through colour, texture, or pattern. To modernise the concept of a feature wall, why not contemplate the use of panelling? Not only does it introduce depth and intrigue, but as a natural material, it seamlessly blends into the space without overwhelming it. For a personalised touch, consider exploring the potential of integrating bedroom accessories like wall lights and bedside tables directly into the panelling.
6. Subtle pops of colour
While our primary desire for bedrooms is to evoke a sense of calm and serenity, given the substantial time spent in these spaces – whether sleeping, relaxing, or even working – it’s equally crucial that they mirror our unique personalities. Bursts of colour are an effective strategy, adding an individual touch without overwhelming the overall atmosphere.
This trend particularly resonates with those who appreciate the bold aesthetics of maximalist decor. Even if you’re not a DIY enthusiast or are living in a rented space, you can still embrace this trend by acquiring vibrant elements such as throws, duvet covers, rugs, or artwork in your preferred colours. Consider selecting specific spots, such as a cornice, to paint in a vivid, contrasting shade compared to the rest of the room. Alternatively, for a bold and impactful visual anchor, explore the option of incorporating fitted wardrobes, like our Bella Supermatt Fir Green Carlton.
7. Dark cocoon-like shades
As we just touched on, there has been a notable shift towards maximalism, where homeowners aim to reflect their personality in their private spaces. Dark shades take this bold approach further, wrapping the room in a comforting ambience and creating an inviting retreat where individuals can truly unwind.
When incorporating dark colours into bedroom decor, envision deep-toned walls and carefully chosen bedroom accessories (and yes, books and great-smelling candles definitely count). If the idea of dark walls feels overwhelming, consider opting for dark-fitted wardrobes. A standout choice we adore is the Bella Matt Black Knebworth.
8. Feng shui
Prioritising wellness is key to a better night’s sleep, especially given the challenges of recent years. Now, let’s talk about a game-changing technique that can truly make a difference—enter the world of feng shui. An ancient Chinese practice, feng shui involves arranging fitted furniture and standalone objects to harmonise with the energy of a space. This means that mindfully placing things such as your wardrobes and bed can have a great influence, positively impacting sleep quality, relaxation, and stress levels.
At Kingfield Bedrooms, we can further enhance your bedroom’s feng shui by providing expert advice on the optimal placement of modern wardrobes. Creating your own peaceful sanctuary is made easier with our guidance. Discover how to achieve balance and harmony in your bedroom with a personalised design visit.
Feng shui tips for sleeping better at night
- Follow the trend and add a headboard – whether you prefer a more straightforward style or something unique, headboards symbolise strength and are renowned for creating great feng shui.
- Ensure your bed is in a good position – for the best bed placement, position it diagonally across from the door so you can see the entrance without being directly in line with it – that’s considered vulnerable in feng shui. Traditionally, it’s recommended to sleep with your head towards the south.
- Symmetry is also key – keep a good balance in your bedroom by making sure your bed is accessible from both sides, promoting a harmonious mix of energies.
- Avoid working from this sacred space – mixing work and rest in the same room can change the energy from peaceful to stressful. If possible, keep your office separate from your sleeping space.
- Don’t hang artwork directly above your bed – instead, place it where you can see it right when you wake up. This helps improve the positive energy flow in your bedroom.
