When it comes to masculine bedrooms, the first thing that comes to mind is simplicity. This bachelor vs. bachelorette apartment infographic introduces us to bachelor must-haves; one of them is a simple bed in neutral colors, but subtly spiced up with a bold accent. The bedroom above presents a sleek, simple and sophisticated interior design where function reigns supreme. Spicing things up with a contrasting atmosphere, the bedroom above instills a peaceful, neutral atmosphere perfect for a relaxed lifestyle. Stylish in every (minimalist) detail, this bedrooms borders masculinity thanks to a clever blend of materials and lighting. Imagined for a flourishing young family, this modern Kiev apartment designed by Ivan Yurima Architects is a great example of finding common design ground within a family.
Even the industrial feel of corrugated sheet metal can be softened by an intricate decorative cut. Metal may not be appealing to every taste, but there are a lot of options for the DIYer to make a signature headboard from this versatile material. Even more than the creative potential in the first three categories, free-form headboards give you endless design freedom. You can use almost anything: pillows grouped into a display, pieces of driftwood or bamboo against the wall, vintage books adhered to a piece of backing.
For example, whether it`s a bookshelf, storage cube or wall unit, place baby friendly toys and items on the lower shelves. Your toddler or older child can stand and reach for the basket of Lego. Incorporate elements that show your children their growing family. Photos of the kids together, framed handprints of when they each were newborns encourage them to appreciate their younger or older sibling while adding a warm family atmosphere to their bedroom. Finding the space in one room for twice as much furniture and storage is one of the most daunting tasks when designing a shared room. This is where your resourcefulness and editing eye need to kick into high gear. Less is definitely more in a shared bedroom, as is multifunctional and shared design. As a baseline, selecting streamlined furniture is essential to keep the room feeling as spacious as possible and allow for storage and playing. If your kids are old enough, bunk beds are always an excellent choice. Whether L-shaped or vertical, a bunk bed is an efficient use of space and oftentimes has built-in storage underneath.
Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
The clean-lined Modrest nightstand features an interesting asymmetrical detail. White painted glass gives it a fresh, modern look regardless of how long you’ve owned it. The two large drawers will hold nearly anything you keep around your bed. Whichever style you choose, make the look your own; just remember to consider function as well as style when selecting a modern nightstand for your bedroom. We hope these ideas have inspired you!
