Design Trends for Your Master Bedroom


When it comes to decorating your master bedroom, it’s usually good to do what you like best. Afterall, you are the one that has to spend the most time in it. However, some master bedroom design trends are trending in 2018. If you’re thinking about redesigning your bedroom, there are a few trends you should know about to keep up with the times. Not everyone is going to like them all, but options never hurt anyone! The new bedroom trends are not too extreme or expensive, so they might be worth trying out. Here are the top 4 bedroom design trends to look out for in 2018.


Wood Plank Walls

These accent walls are becoming more and more popular with their rustic cozy look that adds character to an otherwise plain room. You can choose to use real wood or save a little money with a laminate look alike. Adding wood plank wall creates a warm and peaceful look that’s not too much over the top. If covering an entire wall is a little too much for you, start out with a wood plank headboard instead. This is much less expensive and will give you time to see if you warm up to the look.


Statement Light Fixtures

If your ceiling is nothing more than canned lighting, it’s time to upgrade. Adding a statement light fixture can completely transform the look of a room. The only catch is that whatever fixture you choose needs to be large enough to attract the eye to the focal piece. You don’t want this statement piece to blend in. Whether it be a chandelier, oversized hanging shade, or a unique sculptural fixture, the whole point is to have fun with it. A chandelier best practice is to always install a dimmer so you can control the amount of light given off to create different moods.



Cool tones of silver, chrome, and pewter have been big for the past several years, but now a different, much warmer tone is gaining popularity. Warm metals are taking over. From copper to gold, you can pair this warm metal finish with a bedside lamp, ceiling fixture, curtain rods, picture frames, furniture trim or even collectibles. However, be aware of overdosing on the metallic trend. As with anything in life, balance is key to creating a room that is both inviting and proportionately designed.



Gone are the days of bulky furniture, multiple dressers and stuffing as much as you can into the room to create a “homey” look. We are not saying you have to strip your bedroom down to the bones and live in a boring, bare box. Minimalism is all about creating a sense of peace and calm to surround yourself with simplicity in a fast-paced world. Contemporary and modern furniture are the most popular to create the minimalistic atmosphere. A typical minimalist bedroom has a limited color scheme, furniture with clean lines and a platform bed without a headboard.
