Add Color

Neutral tones like whites, creams, grays, and soft pastels create a calming and sophisticated atmosphere and make a great foundation for bedroom design. Add pops of color through decor items like pillows, throws, and artwork, which can be easily updated as trends change.

An emerging trend in 2024 does away with the statement wall in the bedroom and instead adds contrast or color on the trims, moldings, and baseboards. It adds character to the space just like a statement wall, but spreads it throughout the room.

Try it with a black or oil rubbed bronze baseboard heater cover against a light wall. Add the same color to moldings and baseboards for a continuous scheme that’s sure to make your design stand out.

Go Natural

Incorporating natural materials such as wood, rattan, bamboo, and linen is still on trend and can add warmth and texture to your bedroom. Consider using these materials for furniture pieces, accent decor, or even as wall coverings.

Biophilic designs invite a calm energy and reconnection with the natural world that might make the bedroom your favorite room of the house.

In a space that is usually dim, it’s a shift from the norm, but 2024 sees natural lighting making an entrance into the bedroom in a big way. Not only is it a greener approach but it helps you regulate natural sleep and wake rhythms.

Big windows, skylights, and fixtures that nod to natural materials all help achieve this trend.

Mix It Up

Blending design styles and mixing design elements is the name of the game in 2024. Get rid of the matching bedroom set in favor of hand-picked, and separate, furnishings. This adds personality, interest, and visual texture to the space.

If the minimalist in you is twitching at the thought of things not matching, there are many ways to achieve this trend without going full eclectic. Perhaps your furnishings aren’t cut from the same cloth but are in the same color family. Maybe you mix up the colors but keep the symmetry of the room.

Mismatching bed linens is a micro trend that can give your bedroom a complete overhaul without much work, time, or money. Add different patterns, textures, or shapes to easily take advantage of the freshness this trend offers.

Integrate Tech

Incorporate smart home technology to enhance convenience and comfort in your bedroom. From smart lighting systems and automated window treatments to voice-controlled assistants, integrating technology can streamline your daily routines and elevate your bedroom experience.

Hot Now

Hiding technology and the ports and cords that often come with it is of great importance in the bedroom—and one of the hottest trends in 2024. Mood lighting can hide behind molding or under the bedframe. Smart furnishings are designed with aesthetic first and put all the tech behind the scenes. Add voice-activation so you can get rid of remotes.

Bring Texture

Though the statement wall of bold color may have left the bedroom, the statement wall covered with texture is in for 2024. Whether you do a simple plaster texture then paint over it, or add wood paneling, the literal and visual texture this brings to the space adds personality.

You can also add texture with bedding, rugs, and other textiles throughout the room. Even without color, these textures bring the room to life and make it feel softer, warmer—right on trend in 2024.

Hot Now

Wallpaper, especially florals, are hot in 2024 bedrooms. Double up on trends and go with a fabric wallcovering to get the benefits of the pattern and the texture in one.

By incorporating these bedroom design trends and updates, you can create a stylish and inviting space that reflects your personality and keeps up with current design aesthetics.
