17 ideas to furnish a minimal (but not too much) bedroom

A tapestry, a panoramic wallpaper, a chest of drawers inherited from the parents: the ideas for furnishing a bedroom in a minimal style without making it look like a cold and not very personalized environment, there are many. It doesn’t take much to customize the sleeping area and “heating” even the most essential environment. You can guess it by browsing the 17 solutions collected in this gallery, rooms that convey calm and a feeling of order, but which have in common that extra touch – from the headboard in natural material to the use of color – capable of making them special.

Among the ideas to give character e furnish the bedroom there is the headboard of the bed in Vienna straw, that delicate and openwork natural weave of nineteenth-century memory that is now very trendy. Useful and decorative, the container headboards, better if sculptural and colored, with storage compartments to maximize the available space and have everything at hand.

Another solution to “light up” the style of the room are the pendant lights that descend like waterfalls on the bedside tables, scenographic presences and at the same time ingenious tricks because they solve the absence of electrical connections on the sides of the bed.

Often, when you don’t have clear ideas or are afraid to dare, you choose neutral colors and total white walls, a chromatic choice that instills security and peace. However, beware: a bedroom that is too white could be anonymous and tiring in the long run. Here it is good to play with some backgrounds of color, choosing between light and dusty colors, such as antique pink perhaps with a “box” effect on all the walls or focusing on bolder shades applied on small surfaces, such as the one behind the bed. A suggestion: If the minimal style is your goal, when the chromatic tone rises (many colors or only one very strong), it is good to reduce the furnishings to a minimum. The room will thus gain originality without losing balance.

The false belief that keeping plants in the bedroom can harm health has long been dispelled, it is natural to consider them in the composition of the room, exploiting their positive impact on body, mind and decoration. A total white room or all played on neutrals will find a pleasant ease in the disheveled leaves of sagging species resting on shelves, while a single large specimen, such as a Ficus, will improve the rhythm of volumes and colors and create an interesting focal point without upset the harmony of the whole.

Vintage and custom-made furnishings

Sculptural bedside tables, a vintage chest of drawers, a designer seat: even a single piece, but it is important, can give character to the entire environment. However, sometimes, the bravest choice is the one that makes you happy (a rule that also applies in life): by going a little further than the simple complement, you can make a toilet that surprisingly emerges from the container wall, or a small wardrobe made in a niche behind the headboard, or one mirrored wall which doubles the space, multiplies the light and creates intriguing visual illusions. For a minimal bedroom that offers different emotions with each awakening.
