Bedroom Revamp: Contemporary or Conventional?

We do love our bedrooms but sometimes we also get tired of its look. This especially happens when we leafed through home design magazines or take a look at home design websites. And that is when the thought of having a bedroom revamp comes into mind.

It does happen to anyone so do not stop yourself if that is what you want. Anyway, the reason why some are hesitant in doing this is they think that it means cashing out a big amount. But this is not so, as both your old furniture can be mixed with the contemporary ones. However, going in style with modern furniture is not at all that expensive. Take time to read the following:

Contemporary Bedroom

Let us go to the bed first since this is the focus of the bedroom. Contemporary beds are given a different touch these days. They can turn your bedroom to be so modish with its designs and shapes. Modern beds are no longer confined to being square or rectangular. You can now have it in circular form, too.

Not only that, headboards come in different forms: clamp shape, curvilinear, round and these shapes are made taller than the usual headboards. Aside from using wood, headboards are now with leatherette padding with tuft designs or stitching. Some beds also come with individual headrests.

Contemporary bed manufacturers have even made beds that can stand on their own. Why? They make use of wood or leather, drifting squares or huge furniture pieces that appear self-sufficient with night tables and sofa-like platforms.

Aside from leather, they also make use of materials like cotton, linen, silk, wool, organic hemp, refurbished polyester foam and natural latex foam. You are also assured that they are non-toxic so they do not pose danger to the atmosphere.

Functionality is also a foremost characteristic of modern beds. They have built-in drawers underneath the bed providing you with more storage space for your linens, pillow cases, curtains, etc.

Contemporary bedroom furniture has also combined features of modernity and conventionality. Bedside tables, cabinets, chest of drawers and other furnishings needed in your private solace makes use of varied materials like vinyl, glass, chrome and of course, wood.

On top of that, they are easy on the pocket and can blend well with any type of furniture.

Conventional Bedroom

Since some people regard their bedroom furniture as lifetime pieces, conventional ones are perfect choices. These beds, chests, nightstands, armoires and dressers are available in the old traditional Italian furniture (known for its exquisite designs, styles and durability), Spanish, Colonial, Western, Colonial or rustic. They provide a classic appeal.

These types of furniture are mostly made of wood that have baroque carvings or styles. Some beds even have the queen, prince or princess presentation. Four-poster beds are still available although these are given a small touch of modernism, which can be called transitional ones.

Conventional furniture promises to be extraordinary as they lived with history. A part of the family’s heirloom, people just cannot part with them.

Bedrooms that have traditional furniture can still be kept the way it is. Just mix them with some contemporary ones and your bedroom will have a middle-of-the road character.

So aside from keeping your bedroom in style, you can still keep its conservative look.

You may not be an interior designer but surely you have an eye for what is good-looking and appealing and besides let your imagination work. The thing is you need to know what you want your bedroom to look. Honestly speaking, I have tried it in my daughter’s bedroom and she liked it. So I am on my 2nd project, the master’s bedroom. I am sure that you will feel proud of your masterpiece, just like the way I felt!

    Excellent point! Before you starting redecorating your bedroom, you need some kind of goal. This will help make sure that all your efforts are working towards the same thing! You wouldn’t want to get 90% of the way there and realize you like your new bedroom less than the old one!

  2. I found your web-blog just in time, considering I’m going to be re-decorating my children’s bedrooms and needed some clever ideas. A bed with built in drawers for storage is an excellent idea to create space in our small bedrooms. Your bedroom ensembles inspire and motivate me.
