Simple Tips & Tricks For Creating A Minimalist Bedroom

By  |  0 Comments

Minimalist design is all about removing any visual clutter which in turn really helps to declutter and destress your mind. When it comes to a minimalist bedroom, the fewer things you have surrounding you as you drift off, the fewer distractions from sleep your mind can latch onto.

So take a look at my top tips to decluttering your bedroom in my short video below and scroll down for more.

 

How to style your bedroom like a minimalist

Stick with a neutral palette – A neutral colour palette is the easiest way to create a blank canvas and a calming environment. 

Remove unnecessary items – Scan your room for items that aren’t absolutely necessary and see if you can  find another place for them in your home.

Give everything a home – Clutter quickly builds up if you don’t have a place for everything you own.

Incorporate candles – Candles are perfect for making a room feel cosy and smell beautiful. They also look pretty and make great décor pieces in a minimal bedroom.

Don’t use your bedroom as a dumping ground – I really like to think of my bedroom as a sanctuary – it’s a place I can go to escape the world. For this reason it’s really important to not use your bedroom as a sort of dumping ground for this like washing that needs to be folded or clothes you’re not wearing. For me it’s the most important room in the house and it needs to be treated that way.

Add texture – When your sticking to a neutral colour palette one way to add interest is to include texture into your room. Incorporating textured cushions, throws and rugs will always give your room a wow factor without being overstated.

Remove electronics where possible – Each and every day we’re bombarded by beeps, notifications, and other forms of constant stimulation thanks to our abundance of electronic devices. This is great for keeping up connections but horrible for relaxation. The fewer distractions and interruptions we have, the more readily our minds and bodies can let go and relax. To optimise your peace of mind for deep sleep, keep electronics out of the bedroom.

Cosy up the bed – Does anything look more inviting than this bed? It seems obvious that, if you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, you ought to make your bed as comfortable as possible. Where possible treat yourself to luxurious bedding, fluffy pillows, and super soft sheets.

Natural light – A light filled room has a special way of easing stress levels. I always open our blinds during the day to let in as much natural light as posssible. It really helps to lift your spirits and give you a real sense of peace and tranquility.

Add plants – Plants are the easiest way to breathe new life into a room but without making it look cluttered. If you don’t have a green thumb then you can incorporate faux plants into uyour room but I always think the real thing is much more grounding.

Create symmetry – Symmetry is great for rest in much the same way minimalism is. This is the one room in your house where you really want to eliminate excessive stimulation and distraction, and symmetrical designs can play a big part in that. If one side of your room mirrors the other, your brain will have less to cling to and think about than it would in a more chaotic space. And the less you latch on, the easier it is to let go and fall into Dreamland.
