Modern bedrooms: a homify guide

For many, a modern look is the height of style. Marked by sleek, sophisticated spaces that emphasise function and simplicity, modern interior design can make your home feel more spacious and restful by doing away with excess clutter or decor that is overly visually stimulating. This effect can be especially rewarding in the bedroom, where we want to create an ambiance of peace and tranquillity. Today on homify, we look at some examples of modern bedroom design. 

Minimal décor

This bedroom is starkly minimal, yet elegant in its simplicity. Despite its extreme lack of accessories, and the near absence of décor of any kind, the space does not feel cold or severe. The warm tones of the wood floor are echoed in the bed frame and the bedside table, which cleverly points directly to its source. The bare walls and plain bedding ensure a restful sleep free of distraction.

Basic shapes

Unlike the room pictured above, the designer of this bedroom does not insist on pure minimalism to achieve a modern look, but instead leans toward basic, ergonomic shapes and primary colours. The animal hide rug is reminiscent of the above bed side table, in that both pieces directly reference the origins of their materials.

White nights

Like many on this list, this simple, lovely bedroom makes ample use of one of modern design's favourite colours—white. This shade has always been a popular choice for bedding, and we can see why! Is there anything more inviting than crisp white sheets at the end of the day? 


Given modernism's clean, uncluttered look, it stands to reason that good storage solutions are a must when working with this style. This bed lifts up to cleverly conceal a hidden space within, perfect for stashing extra blankets and pillows. This room also makes good use of neutral colours, including grey, which is a shade that inspires calm. Therefore, it fits quite well in the bedroom.

Darker shades

As we can see here, a modern look doesn't have to be bright and white. In this bedroom, the darker colours lend an air of sophistication. This room also has more details than many of our other examples through the patterned bedding, the intricate wall art and uniquely painted headboard. The simple shapes and strong lines, however, ensure that the overall feel is cool and modern.


The design of this modern bedroom has used textures to add detail and depth without too much visual complexity. The square-based patterns draw a similarity between the bed and the wall, and both are complemented by the round shapes of the rug, which, with its little grey circles, suggests a carpet of stones. Again, we have a case typical to the modern aesthetic in which pieces are constructed out of, or at least refer to, basic, elemental materials.

Complex simplicity

The décor in this room draws from modern design and traditional Asian styles to create a room that is glowing and serene. The bold lines and minimal furniture are effortlessly simple, while the multiple tones of the wood and the wooden beams of the windows bring an element of complexity. The result is a meditative, peaceful bedroom.
