7. Create a serene, spa-like setting
Make a modern bedroom perfect for relaxation with a design not dissimilar to a spa. The rule to follow here is pale hues, with just a few pieces of furniture for a minimalist space. This should be a room where you can switch off, literally – leave your smartphone outside, and don’t plan on installing a TV (hint: read a book to relax you instead).
Go for a bed with a wooden frame – natural textures and materials help to create a soothing vibe. Complement this with the other furniture in the room, or go for white instead with your choice of dressing table. A simple, low profile bedside table can be used to stack your reading material.
To finish, introduce more soft textures, helping to de-stress after a long day, through your choice of rugs and cushions. Softer, layered lighting will help you prepare for bedtime. Floor and table lamps are more relaxing than bright overhead lights.
