There are no and have never been any hard and fast rules about interior design, but once in a while you end up hearing something that feels like a total myth. Well, here are 5 bedroom design myths that are true facts. Take a look:
1. Mismatched furniture = more charisma
One of the biggest bedroom design mistakes you’ll ever make is by choosing matchy-matchy furniture and accessories. That myth about everything being mismatched resulting in more charisma is absolutely true! Go for eclectic nightstands that contrast the look of your entire space. Pick out study desks that have their own personality. Go for media walls that mix and match with the whole ambiance. It’ll work!
2.Dark colours work in well-lit small rooms
Everybody knows that dark and bold colours can make a small space feel claustrophobic, but did you know that they can work really well in well-lit spaces. As long as your bedroom has a window that let’s in an ample amount of sunlight, you can easily introduce a dark coloured floor and accent wall in your spaces. The natural light can counterbalance the absorbency of such colours.
3. Modular beds are the new ‘new’
In the past, many homeowners used to think that having a queen bed with a typical header and footer is a must have for the bedroom to look complete, but that’s not true at all these days. Nowadays, you have more functional compact modular furniture whose headboard can be a shelf or a wardrobe while the footboard morphs into a study desk – it’s definitely the new ‘new.’
4. Your bed is your storage area
Who could have thought that the bed can function as a make-shift wardrobe, but this myth has been certified these days. Platform beds with underfoot storage and pullout drawers have become the new norm. They are the ‘trendy’ option as compared to those beds with a typical open space underneath the mattress.
5. Your modern bedroom is your workspace
Who needs a separate home office when your bedroom (yes, even the smaller one) can be transformed into a partial workspace. Beds that morph into a study desk are a common commodity these days. They have a great functional and aesthetic appeal that makes the millennial market vie for them!
