Is a bedroom revamp on your list of interiors projects for 2020?
If you’re making changes to your bedroom this year, chances are you’ll start the project by doing a spot of research into the current bedroom trends. I always find that browsing interiors trends in magazines and online is a great way to explore ideas and find inspiration. In particular, Pinterest is my best friend for this kind of research – although it’s very easy to get carried away!
To help you get started on your bedroom project, here’s a quick guide to the key bedroom trends for 2020.
Key bedroom trends 2020
Bedroom colour trends
Previous years have seen a huge emphasis on shades of grey in interior design, and it’s safe to say this trend isn’t going away any time soon. Grey is a very versatile colour to work with, as it provides a neutral backdrop for strong accent colours and is available in a huge variety of tones and shades.
Having said that, 2020 could well see a move back towards bolder colours for bedrooms. Dulux’s 2020 colour of the year is Tranquil Dawn, a subtle grey-green which works well alongside dusky pinks, blues and greys.
The trend towards bolder colour is also evident in this year’s Pantone colour of the year. Classic Blue is a strong shade which lends itself well to calming bedroom colour schemes. I think it would look fantastic as an accent colour in a bedroom which uses paler blue and grey tones as the main palette.
Your bed is very often the largest item of furniture in your bedroom, so it can play a big role in the overall look of the room. Fabric upholstered bed frames have been growing in popularity in recent years, and with retailers continuing to expand their ranges it looks like this will be a key bedroom trend in 2020.
Upholstered bed frames are a great way to introduce colour and texture to your bedroom, not to mention the comfort factor of having a soft headboard. Neutral shades are a safe long-term investment as they will complement most colour schemes, but a bold colour will work fabulously to lift an otherwise neutral room.
When it comes to fabric trends for upholstered beds, suede and chenille are key for creating a glamorous bedroom style. At the other end of the design spectrum, cotton or linen-style fabrics are popular for creating a more pared-back, calming, natural feel.
Bedroom furniture trends
Bedrooms lend themselves naturally to opulent, glamorous design styles, and this trend looks to remain popular in 2020. Luxurious fabrics, metallic accessories and mirrored or high-gloss furniture are all great ways to create the glamorous vibe.
The trend towards smaller living spaces will also be reflected in bedroom furniture going forward. Clever hidden storage, reflective surfaces and wall-mounted options for bedside tables and reading lights can really help to make a small bedroom feel bigger, while making the best use of the available space.
Bedroom accessories trends
As with any interiors project, accessories can provide the crucial finishing touches to a bedroom re-style. Accessories are brilliant for introducing an accent colour, a luxurious or natural texture, or even a focal point such as wall art. I think the trend towards bolder colours we’re seeing this year lends itself nicely to bedroom accessories; think along the lines of a vibrant chair, cushion, painting or vase.
2020 will also see us continuing to use plants as accessories in our homes. Plants are a great way to add colour and texture to a bedroom, and there’s also the psychological benefits of interacting with nature indoors. Peace Lily, Sansevieria and Aloe Vera are all good air-purifying options, they’re also able to cope with partial shade and even a bit of neglect!
