MINIMALISM IS CERTAINLY NOTHING NEW WHEN IT COMES TO HOME DECOR. INTERIOR DESIGN MAGS AND PINTEREST BOARDS ARE FILLED WITH IMAGES OF CLEAN WHITE ROOMS WITH STYLISH DETAILS, MAKING US EAGER TO TRY OUT SOME SCANDINAVIAN INSPIRED DECOR FOR OURSELVES!
A great room to decorate with minimalism in mind is the bedroom, and if you have children, decorating their room in this way is the perfect solution if you’d rather keep things as simple and relaxing as possible. Take a look at these top tips on creating a minimalist inspired bedroom for your little one.
Stick to neutral tones
When designing any room with minimalism in mind, it’s always best to try and stick to a more neutral colour palette. Decor in white, beige or light grey is great for a child’s bedroom as it has a calming effect and keeps the room as versatile as possible – ideal if you wish to pass the room on to younger siblings. If you can’t resist a bit of colour, consider painting one wall in the room in a brighter shade or with some colourful wallpaper of choice.
Choose timeless furniture
The furniture you choose plays a big part in the overall aesthetic of the room. While you want to keep a minimal look, avoid furniture made from glass, transparent plastic or metal. Not only can these types of materials be risky in a young child’s room, but they can also give the space a cold, unwelcoming feel. Stick to furniture made from light coloured wood, with simple yet striking designs. For the bed, cabin beds with storage can be a great choice as they’re available in some beautiful designs and colours, with the added bonus of extra storage space to keep your child’s room clutter-free.
While your child’s bedroom might not be as bold and vibrant as some, that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a bit of fun! Get creative by introducing some beautiful accessories, such as patterned curtains, cushions, rugs and bedding. If your child likes to draw, consider framing a few of their favourite pieces of artwork and hanging on a feature wall in the room for a nice personal touch.
Keep it cosy
Perhaps the most important tip of all – don’t forget to keep your child’s room as comfortable and cosy as possible! The appearance of the bedroom is important, but above all else it’s a space your child will spend sleeping and relaxing. Fluffy cushions, soft blankets, and cuddly teddies will look beautiful in your child’s newly designed room and help them drift off into a restful night’s sleep in no time.
