How To Create a Modern Bedroom Design: With Examples

Our bedrooms are our sanctuaries from the outside world. Some people keep their bedrooms looking fairly basic, with just a bed and a bedside table with lamp, walls painted with a rather anonymous white colour. Other people prefer to add a bit of style and colour into them.

If you feel that it is time to give your bedroom an upgrade but you are a bit stuck for ideas, then you need to take a look at these awesome examples on how to create a modern bedroom design!

First off is this light and airy design idea courtesy of IKEA, for those of you that want to stick with a mostly-white theme. This theme is particularly suitable for smaller bedrooms, as the white colours give the impression that the room is bigger than it actually is, yet the red wardrobe helps to break things up.

Here are the main items needed to help you achieve this look:
