Whether you are redecorating your bedroom or buying your first matched bed set as an adult, you want to choose a style that you’ll be happy with for a long time. Solid wood bed frames and headboards are extremely durable and can last several decades. Choosing something that will match your tastes long-term is important if you want to have a cohesive look for your bedroom.
Some bed sets are suitable for more than one style, or you can sometimes blend styles to create a unique look. Just make sure that you are aware of the difference between clashing and contrasting. Using contrasting colors, patterns, and textures are in, but you don’t want them to clash harshly.
Here are some more tips on the top bedroom styles.
The difference between eclectic and Bohemian
Many people use the terms eclectic and Bohemian interchangeably, but there are some differences. Eclectic bedroom sets still match, but they are made up of a blending of styles and themes. There are still some rules with eclectic styles, but with Bohemian styles, anything goes.
Yet even the Bohemian style has its own unique angle. Most Bohemian bedroom sets are made of natural materials and fibers, right down to the curtains and the rug. Bringing a bit of nature indoors is the goal of any Bohemian apartment.
The difference between shabby chic and just shabby
Here is another point that people often get wrong when it comes to decorating a bedroom. Young adults and teens love to have that chic look with vintage items. But vintage doesn’t mean trashy. You can buy bed sets that are new but have been intentionally weathered or distressed, giving you the shabby look with new and durable furniture.
You can also fill your bedroom with truly vintage pieces, but make sure they are sturdy enough to be durable and safe for seating. You may need to do some refurbishing of vintage items before they can be used. If buying furniture second-hand make sure you are aware of possible issues, check for bed bugs and durability, etc.
In short, looking shabby is in, but no one really expects it to be authentic.
Traditional and old-world styles
Although they are not as popular as they once were, the traditional and old-world styles are still very much in demand. People love having bedrooms appointed with grand and ornate furnishings like the queens, kings, and nobles of yore. If that describes you, the traditional style is the way to go. Best of all, traditional furniture will be trending for many more years.
Art deco doesn’t have to mean black and white
When most people think of “art deco” their first thought is, “That was the roaring ‘20s.” The second thought is, “It must be black and white.” Well, art deco might have started in the ‘20s, but the style has evolved and is trending still today. Art deco refers to two contrasting colors, and they don’t have to be white and black. You could choose red and black, blue and green, or any other complementary pairing.
