Hey guys! You all seem to really enjoy my other bedroom tips posts, so I thought I’d do a post with tips for a cozy minimalist bedroom. This style has been super popular, and it’s just so cute! I’m excited to share some tips for creating your own, trendy, cozy minimalist bedroom!
Paint the walls white. 99% of the cozy minimalist bedrooms that I’ve seen are painted in a shade of white. It’s such a versatile color, and can go with any other color palette. Painting your room white will also open it up and make it feel much bigger.
Add lots of big plants. Guys, plants are a MUST in all cozy minimalist bedrooms. You could do different varieties of succulents, or opt for other house plants such as ferns or philodendron.
Stick to a limited color palette. If you have a ton of different colors going in your room, it will instantly feel more cluttered. Instead, choose a few colors that work well together. Pinterest is absolutely full of different color combos!
Opt for neutral wall/bed/furniture colors and bold accents. This relates to the last tip, but it’s so important, that I thought I’d still add it. Going with neutral furniture and wall colors is SO IMPORTANT. Besides, if you ever decide to change your room, you can just add new accents instead of replacing everything.
Eliminate unnecessary furniture, especially if it’s bulky. Having a bulky desk, bulky nightstands, a bulky dresser and bed, doesn’t exactly scream minimalist, does it? First, try to eliminate any unnecessary furniture (nightstands take up a bunch of space, so do bulky desks) and replace it with more simple, clean substitutes (you could repaint an old school desk to replace a bulky wooden desk). This will make your room feel so much bigger and cleaner.
Keep the walls simple. Rather than filling up the wall with lots of huge frames and other artwork, stick to a few pieces that are really meaningful to you. If you have one or two meaningful photos, then why not get them printed on a canvas. This won’t clutter up your room, but will still create a homey, cozy feel.
Store your stuff out of sight. Open shelving is perfect for books, or other basic items that you want to highlight, but what about that stuff? You know, that stuff. The trinkets, old birthday cards, letters, old makeup and other junk that you just can’t bring yourself to get rid of? Storing those things in a ottoman with extra storage inside, or investing in under-bed storage can really help with storing this stuff.
Get rid of the stuff you don’t need. Going through stuff, and reevaluating what you need and don’t need is super important. Oftentimes, things that we needed or wanted to keep in the past, we don’t need now. Get rid of anything that is broken or clothing that is stained now. Then if you aren’t sure whether or not you want to keep something, keep it for a month or two and if you don’t use it, then go ahead and get rid of it.
Invest in simple bedding. I love colorful and patterned bedding, but oftentimes it can make a room look more cluttered than not, which isn’t the look that we are going for. Instead, opt for a clean white bedspread, or something else neutral, such as light gray or blush pink.
Add an area rug. Adding an area rug will make the room feel more cozy and homey, rather than cold and unwelcoming. I like going with a more neutral colored rug, with bright patterns. It looks so nice on a wood floor. I realize that many people will have carpet in their bedroom, and guess what, you can still add an area rug with carpet. I’d go with a smaller one personally, but just experiment and see what works for you.
Get rid of the knick-knacks. We all have them, don’t we? Knick-knacks might be fun, but honestly they just clutter up a room SO MUCH. Even though they’re typically small, having so many of them makes things feel much more cluttered than they need to. Displaying one or two may work, but otherwise, get rid of them or give them away.
Add warm lighting. A cozy minimalist bedroom should have a ton of natural lighting, but unless you’re building a new house or doing some major renovations, you can’t move your windows. But you can add some warm lighting to make the room feel more cozy. Avoid big, bulky table lamps, and go with something more subtle, such as bright fairy lights or overhead lamps.
