Find your modern bedroom ideas to give your room a fresh, new feel.

Modern bedrooms take some inspiration from Scandi and minimalist bedroom ideas. There is a lot of freedom with the interior design of a modern bedroom, you can really tailor it towards you and your interests. You may not need to redo your entire room, just adding modern touches can make all the difference.

A modern design scheme can be as fancy or as stripped-back as you like. The main goal is to make the space feel comfortable with a modern vibe.

What are the characteristics of a modern bedroom?

A contemporary bedroom creates an elegant space. The bedroom scheme tends to use a monochrome design with natural tones and white walls. You will find pattern combinations, natural light and built-in storage for a sleek design. Modern bedrooms have the perfect balance of rich textures and simplistic interior design.

How does a modern bedroom help you sleep?

A modern bedroom design keeps things natural to give you a restful space to sleep in. Everything is airy in a modern space – if you choose darker flooring then it will give a cosy feel to send you to sleep or if you would prefer light colours, it will give you a space that keeps you in a good mood before you snuggle up at night. Modern bedrooms can allow the room to be clear and open which can give you a clear and open mind with no distractions whilst you sleep.

Products to help you create your modern bedroom

We are going to give you a roundup of some of the products you can include in your modern bedroom ideas. The main bedroom needs to have some statement pieces and abstract patterns to create visual interest in the room – as well as subtle and simple pieces.

Bed frame

The focal point of the bedroom is going to be the bed, so you need to choose wisely and find what will work in the space – you could even get a custom bed. You could opt for a four-poster bed or a platform bed, depending on the bedroom size.

Madison Ottoman Storage Bed


Our chosen bed for modern bedroom ideas is an ottoman bed with an elongated headboard. The vertical lines can help to give an illusion of more vertical space which is great for those with a lower ceiling. Both available colours create a calming sleep space, and the beautiful fabrics are used to give the look of linen. If you are someone with a smaller bedroom, it is a good recommendation for you because there is plenty of under-bed storage to keep your floor space clear.


For your bedding, you will want something that has a luxury feel and works with your bedroom colour scheme. Your bed linens are essential to modern aesthetics and can change the appearance of a room.

Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bedding


Light grey bedding keeps a calming mood throughout the bedroom. This bedding set is super soft sateen and breathable to give you a comfortable night's sleep. The duvet cover and pillowcases have little borders that create a classic style, yet the sheen brings the contemporary design into it.

Soft furnishings

The soft furnishings you add to your bedroom can provide varying textures and a pop of colour. They can really bring your personality into your modern bedroom ideas whilst creating visual interest.

Lyra Throw


We picked out this beautiful knitted throw in a deep blue shade that forms the texture we have mentioned. Blue is another calming colour but also one that never goes out of style. However, it remains classy, sleek and modern. Drape the throw over the end of your bed to complete the look. The grey and blue combination will look stunning together.

Velvet Piped Bolster Cushion


To continue the splash of blue, you can pop this in front of your pillows. It will add interest to your bed due to its rounded shape. The soft velvet is a rich texture to contrast with the knitted throw. We love this gorgeous addition to your bed's makeover, it will make the room feel cosy and inviting.

Strata Woven Dimout Eyelet Curtains


Using different shades of grey emphasises the modern feel while leaving the room feeling calm. They are plain and simple, yet they are able to bring the bedroom together. You can choose between varying widths and lengths to fit your bedroom windows. The curtains can be completely opened to allow for plenty of natural light, but when closed they can dim out any light.


The furniture in a modern bedroom is quite limited – to allow the space to feel clean and clear. All you really need to think about for your modern bedroom ideas is the bedside tables you want to have.

Modern White Nightstand


We love this elegant and stylish bedside table. It has a gloss finish reflecting more light into the room whilst bringing a smooth texture into the bedroom makeover. The gold/brass legs will pair beautifully with the ceiling light we have chosen. It is completed with long, sleek handles on the front of the two drawers.

4 Cube Storage Unit

A classic piece of furniture that can be found in most people's houses, but that is because it is a staple for any room. You can get cube storage boxes to put on the shelves, or you can use them for bedroom decor. Picture the products below distributed on the shelf to create a bold look. To make the most of this product, you could feature two boxes in opposite corners (top right and bottom left) whilst displaying items in the remaining two. The yellow pop of colour will stand out against the back of the unit – choose either grey or white woodwork.

If you are in need of more room to put several items you have the space on top of the unit to put a trinket dish for your jewellery, a plant to make it homely and your current reading book.

Home decor

The important finishing touches to your modern bedroom. It is where you can get creative with contemporary designs, and bring as few or as many decorative pieces as you would like. Whether you want some ornaments on display or just a couple of table lamps.

Cluster Pendant Light


Let's just take a moment for this incredible light – nine opal shades hanging from one plate. Each shade can be adjusted to fit the space you have and to suit your style. The brass elements on the pendant add a hint of warmth to the bedroom – especially when paired with the bedside table.

Anemon Medium Table Light


Everyone likes to have some bedside lighting and to give lower lighting in the evening while you wind down for bed. To complement the ceiling light, we have picked table lights that also use opal. The glass finish, minimalistic design and opal-white combination reinforce everything you should be looking for in modern decor.

Estelle Floor Mirror


Another one for those with a smaller bedroom – and everyone else to be honest. Having this large mirror leaning against a wall can open the space to make it feel double the size. The curving frame creates softness and adheres to the calming feel. Working with the brass accents on the decor, this mirror has a brass framing too so you will still be sticking to the colour scheme.

Additional features

You may want to consider the walls and flooring of your bedroom – the four walls can change the way the modern bedroom is experienced. It could be a good idea to pick out a feature wall for any artwork or perhaps you paint one wall a different colour for an accent wall. We suggest opting for a plain and subtle coloured paint or a dark and rich coloured paint – depending on your chosen colour palette.

If you are going for a cosier feel, then you could think about having a dark wooden floor. It works well to contrast with the lighter pieces in the bedroom, whilst bringing warmth too. Although, light flooring works perfectly fine as well – either way you can achieve your modern bedroom ideas.

Wall art

When it comes to the wall art in a modern bedroom, you can have the freedom to bring in some colour and abstract patterns – let your personality shine through. The wall art can easily become the key piece in your bedroom. Whether you choose a modern mural or framed artwork, both will add interest to the wall space.

Free Flow Wall Art


Free Flow Wall Art – a combination of colours using cool and warm tones to create the perfect balance. The large art would look incredible on a canvas on your feature wall.

Screen Art Print


Screen Art Print – If you would rather make use of the monochrome scheme, this might be the one you choose. The brush strokes in varying shades add another layer of texture.


As we mentioned earlier, the paint colour can look best if you use a pure and simple shade – like white. It doesn't necessarily have to be pure white, it can be a variation. Any shade with a subtle hint of colour can look lovely in a modern bedroom.

Strong White


Strong White – a cooler white shade with a grey undertone that is complemented by an all-white. Create depth with the introduction of a new white shade.

What colour scheme should I choose for a modern bedroom?

The colour scheme you pick has the ability to set the mood and the overall vibe of your bedroom. So, the scheme you have needs to be carefully considered before completing your bedroom makeover.

For a modern bedroom, many people will work with a monochrome palette and use various shades to give depth and texture. Using black, white and grey shades has sleek and contemporary connotations. A slight differentiation could be to use a deep blue or navy colour for a rich and luxurious style.

Another option would be to use earthy tones to match any natural materials used in the accessories. This is especially recommended for those who would prefer a warmer colour scheme, over a cooler colour scheme.


If you want to go all out and make the whole house beautiful then why not add or bring the theme through to your dressing room? A modern theme can work in all rooms of the house, but a modern bedroom is really luxe and has an open space feel.
