How To Transform A Boring Bedroom With Modern Decor

If you look around your bedroom and feel uninspired, then that means it’s time for a redesign. A great way to liven things up is with a modern design style.

Sure, in ten years it may be out of style again as the new modern trends take hold, but then you can do it all over again when you get bored with this design!

Even if your bedroom already looks nice it can use some freshening up anyway. You don’t necessarily have to go for a total renovation if you don’t want to. In fact, that is probably the best thing to do at first to see if you like the new look before you go all in.

That’s what we’ll do then. Let’s take a look at some ways you can liven up your bedroom with some modern elements to go from boring to beaudacious.

Add a water feature

Have you ever stayed at a hotel with a brook running right next to it? Or someplace on the beach where you could hear the waves gently crashing on the shore? Then you remember how relaxing that was.

You can recreate that in your bedroom with any number of water fountains for indoors. A wall mounted waterfall is the perfect way to bring some modern style into your bedroom that looks cool and sounds amazing.

You can fall asleep to the relaxing sounds of water flowing. It is the ideal way to add some zen to your bedroom.

Update your lighting

It may be the only thing missing from your bedroom. The right lighting can transform a room from drab to dramatic. With the use of metal elements for the base of the lights, you can add a touch of the modern. Or, if your idea of modern is more Steampunk, then take some old industrial lighting and use that.

That alone can transform your room and the last word you would use to describe it will be boring.

Swap the rug for concrete

Concrete floors are all the rage for kitchens and bathrooms, but I think they work in a bedroom too. Rip out the wall to wall carpet and pour some concrete.

To give it some style, use an epoxy sealant that has a sort of distressed effect. The way it works is the company that pours the concrete will also polish it so it feels and looks really smooth. They can also color the concrete before it is poured to give it any effect you like.

Use some natural elements

Natural elements says rustic more than modern, but the use of rock features does tie in with a modern sensibility. Use a base made of metal like shined silver either with sharp angles or wavy like the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao Spain which was designed by Frank Gehry.

The rocks will give a bit of a calming effect from some of the starkness of the other modern accents in the room.
