With the warmer weather on the way many homeowners will be looking to spruce up their rooms and instigate some DIY projects. And with now being the time for spring cleaning to refresh and revive your home and your mind, de-cluttering the bedroom is top of a lot of lists.
The bedroom design trends for 2013 suggest a whole range of themes, styles and décor will be popular this year. From a taste of Japan to texture of all kinds, modern design ideas are exciting, invigorating and, most importantly of all, they allow you to express yourself.
Embrace ethnic ideas
Eastern influences are set to be very popular this year, and for those who want a minimalist feel in their bedroom this is the perfect style. Think moving screens that can define set areas within a room and even help you hide away cluttered corners. Bold and stylish flower arrangements are another key item here.
Touchy-feely textures are taking over in 2013. Think sumptuous fabrics such as velvet, silk and fur to give a cosy look that positively screams decadence and taking some time out for yourself. Utilise a wide range of textures and incorporate them into your ornaments and knick-knacks too. Glass and metallic lamps, picture frames and bedside tables are a must-have. Suede and wood are also on trend, but wood furniture should be reclaimed or antique and as natural looking as possible, not flat-pack and too heavily treated.
As our homes and lives become busier and more cluttered the move towards furniture that is both stylish and practical continues. Cluttered rooms can be draining so sort that stuff and hide it away. Storage beds from Time4Sleep are the ultimate solution, combining comfy beds with additional (and hidden) storage space.
Street art indoors
Graffiti and street art are having a huge influence on fashion on the high streets and they can also be brought indoors for a really unique and interesting look for your bedroom. For the ultimate in expressive décor get out your paintbrushes and create your very own work of art. If your creative juices are not flowing, head to the department stores for canvas prints and wallpaper instead.
