Design trends change every year, so basing your entire home around the trends forecasted for each year isn’t always the best idea. With that being said, it’s always worth checking in on the predicted trends for the year as you may see something that you really love and would like to implement in your home.
To help give you some ideas of the trends for bedroom design in 2020, we have teamed up with Bespoke Interiors who specialise in fitted bedrooms. We hope these trends help to give you some ideas if you are thinking of making some design changes or tweaks in your bedroom this year.
The colour of the year
While there doesn’t seem to be a definitive ‘colour of the year’ as multiple brands and manufacturers announce a slightly different one each year. The main two names to look for when finding out the colour of the year are Dulux and Pantone. These two paint brands can often have quite contrasting colours. However, this year they’re closer than others. Pantone announced that their colour was ‘Classic Blue’. Dulux went with a light, almost faded, green colour called ‘Tranquil Dawn’ which according to Dulux is ‘inspired by the morning sky’. Both of these colours can work really well in a bedroom, and ‘tranquil dawn’ in particular can create a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Because of the soft nature of the colour, it can also work really well with other colours if you wanted to produce a two-tone wall.
Bring more nature into your bedroom
House plants and flowers have been a feature of homes for years and years. While living rooms, dining rooms and hallways have been classic areas for plants and other natural elements, one room which often misses out is the bedroom. In 2020 we’re expecting to see this change. Even if house plants aren’t your thing, flowers work really well in bedrooms as they can add a lovely scent to the room along with adding a splash of colour.
This can be a really tricky one for some people, and quite often it depends on how you like to relax in your bedroom. For those who like to watch TV or a film in their bedroom, having a screen will seem perfectly natural. There are those, however, who don’t want to have something which can be dominating, like a TV screen, in their bedroom at all. So for this section, we’re going to steer clear of screens altogether. One area which is immerging as a real trend for the whole home is computer-controlled lightbulbs. These come in two forms. There are those which can be controlled by a personal assistant such as an Amazon Echo and those which are controlled by an app. It’s often down to personal preference but whichever way you go, having lights which you can turn off from your phone or just by using your voice, without having to get out of bed, is a lovely feature to have.
Four poster beds
One of the most traditional pieces of bedroom furniture is the four poster bed. In no way are we saying you should go out and buy a classic four poster bed, there are some great modern options available. Finding a frame which fits with the colour scheme of your room is possible and particularly if you have a minimalist bedroom already. Often the more modern frames are metal and can be age really nicely. Adding a four poster can really make a statement in your bedroom and give the focal point of your bedroom even more wow factor.
Overall, we hope these four trends for this year give you some ideas if you’re looking to add some new touches to your bedroom.
