Creating a Traditional Bedroom, with a 21st Century Twist

Do you love a traditionally styled bedroom? Do you have a modern home? Are you worried your house looks just like the latest lifestyle magazine? Don’t worry, our expert team have put together a helpful tips and tricks guide to creating a traditional bedroom but with a modern twist!

Walls, Floors & Doors

The first step should begin with the colour of your walls & carpets. A neutral colour is perfect as it means you can constantly change the colour of your accessories or bedding without costing you a fortune. They also never go out of style meaning they have the durability in the future for you to change the design and look without too much hassle. Traditional bedroom colours such as grey, white, cream or even off white are always a good choice as they are uplifting, fresh and match with almost everything.

Furniture, Beds & Larger Items

Next up, we have the main focus of your room which 9/10 times is the bed. This can mean choosing the right bed is vital and you can feel HUGE amounts of pressure. The first thing to consider is if you want storage underneath, if so what storage, and once this is decided browse your favourite designs. Dependant on the storage you decide, this can sometimes limit bed design options, fortunately at The Bedroom Shop almost ALL of our beds can be made with additional storage so your dream bed isn’t far away!

            Our main choice to add a modern twist on tradition is a Sleigh Bed. This simple, yet so effective design is a guaranteed WOW piece due to the detailing but also shape in both the headboard and foot-end. Pair this with a modern fabric such as Plush or Crushed velvet and your bedroom is halfway to being fabulous.

When choosing such a grand feature as a sleigh bed, it is important to keep other larger items in the room to a minimum design, to not take away from the bed. Dependant on the size of your bedroom 1 larger wardrobe (3ft wide wardrobes are perfect), chest of drawers and possibly 2 bedsides cabinets are perfect not only for storage but to keep your room to a minimum and ready for the accessories which can take a bedroom from simple to a room fit for the queens sparkle!

 

Accessories & More

Whether you decide on delicate Kate Middleton accessories or more extravagant Kardashian style florals and colours, the way you accessories really can take your room from classic to chic. The simplest way to add a modern twist is to add a pop of colour using cushions, chunky throws and bold patterns. Use the cushions by adding unique designs or un-traditional shapes paired with a chunky traditional throw, just like your Grandma used to knit.

As important as all of the above is in reality everyone’s concept of tradtional, classic, modern and contemporary is totally different. The important to thing to remember is this is YOUR BEDROOM. It doesn’t matter what your friends think, your children, parents or noisy neighbours. If you are happy and are proud of what you created you will sleep easy and wake up happy in your bedroom.
