Put A Contemporary Style In Your Bedroom


The very fact that you are interested in redecorating your bedroom the contemporary way is that you have either seen it in a book and liked it or may be on the net or in an outlet. The first thing, before redecorating and buying any furniture, is to understand the contemporary theme.

The most prominent features of the contemporary theme are its color and lines. Colors would be light beige, white with contrasting black, dark chocolate brown furniture. Simple lines and shapes are what complete this picture. The look of the room is clean, simple, alluring, pleasing to the eye and elegant. Bare walls and open spaces are part of this theme along with high ceilings and bare windows.

You don’t want anything cluttered. Organization is the way to go with this look so go through everything and discard what you don’t need or use. The bedrooms seem to always catch the overspill from other rooms. Walls should be white in color beige, or a pastel green. Neutral colors help to accessorize and not take over. The windows shouldn’t have little to no coverings. Make sure that if you do use curtains the rods are simple too.

Beds are usually low, spacious with self-color bed covers, tucked in neatly to show the edges. Frills are not part of this theme. A neat area rug at the foot of the bed in self-colors or geometric patterns should be placed to match the surrounding colors.

All furniture should be dark in color and not over designed. You will need a small closet for your clothing and a chest of drawer. The furniture should be simple as well. No lines or curves allowed in this design. Handles and knobs should be plain.

A mirror displayed in a stylish frame is another way to add contemporary to your room. You will also want to add a dressing table to give it an elegant look.

Finalizing the look, you will need to find abstract painting in black frames. Just a few of these are needed so you don’t clutter your room. Add accessories such as a clear jar with colored stones on the table or a bowl of potpourri. At the end of the day you will have a contemporary look and feel that will relax you as soon as you walk into the room.
