Your bedroom is where you begin and end every day, and when it’s styled just how you like it, it can set the perfect tone. Whether you’re making a few easy updates or starting fresh, our 2020 bedroom trends roundup can help guide the way. From the hottest styles to the latest in furniture, here’s what we’re loving this year.
Popular Bedroom Styles
Looking for something perfectly polished? Or a little undone? Today’s trending styles have a little of both.
Can an understated bedroom help calm your mind? We like to think so. Stick to the basics with straight lines, natural materials, and a muted color palette. Customize the less-is-more aesthetic with personal touches and comfy accents for a space that helps your cares melt away.
With its fresh, cozy feel, farmhouse style is perfect for the bedroom. Light, clean colors and unfinished materials remain hallmarks of these designs, and in 2020, the look is getting more refined. We’re seeing rooms that go all in, but more that mix in elements of other styles. Make it modern by adding a fuzzy stool, a glam lamp, a retro chair.
Rustic style is anything but fussy, and similar to farmhouse, these easy-to-enjoy designs are right at home in the bedroom. This year, embrace rustic with raw edges and exposed architectural components. Look for elements of metal, raw woods, concrete, and anything weathered.
Bohemian Vibes with Natural Materials
We’re seeing soft, earthy, modern bohemian looks all over. Organic and textured elements are a must in these airy spaces and white walls reign supreme. The color palette is neutral with hints of cognac, cream, and black. (Ready to get the look? Our earthy chic video tutorial can help.)
Bedroom Color Trends
Paint can quickly transform the feel of a space, and the overall color palette of the bedroom really sets the tone. Here’s what’s happening in the world of color.
Whites & Neutrals
We’re seeing today’s bedrooms take on a spa-like quality, and that’s a vibe we can get behind. Crisp white walls are a must. Neutral bedding and furniture is a great complement or you can go monochromatic with white on white.
Bright & Beautiful
Want to start the day with a jolt of energy? Pops of yellow, tangerine, and raspberry will do the trick. We love the playful possibilities that come with this trend.
If a soothing sanctuary is more your style, looks for soft pastel hues. Blush, lavender, dusky pink, and peach are all perfectly subdued and perfectly of the moment.
Rich hues are popular in home décor in general, and these decadent colors look great in the bedroom. Sapphire blue, plum, ruby red, turquoise, and emerald are all great choices.
Bedroom Furniture Trends
Fill your space with pieces that speak to you. This is what’s sparking our interest in bedroom furniture.
In a sleeping space, the headboard is often the centerpiece. Today’s trendiest bedrooms use the headboard to make a style statement. Soft upholstery with button and channel tufting are showing up everywhere. Look for unique materials, oversized features, and rich textures like velvet, too.
Platform Beds with Storage
The low-bed, no box spring trend is ultra chic. Platform beds often have mid-century modern appeal, but they also come in industrial versions, rustic styles, and more. Built-in storage keeps your sleep space tidy and frees up room in your closet and dressers. (For ideas on how to top your bed, take a look at The Hottest Bedding Trends.)
If you have the room, an accent chair – or even a small loveseat – is a great addition. Today, people are using their bedrooms as a space to relax even when they’re not sleeping. A reading nook or seating area is a great addition, and we love the idea of adding a tub or arm chair in a vibrant color.
A bedroom bench is the perfect addition to the foot of the bed. Look for designs with storage for extra versatility, or turn to natural materials or bold colors to incorporate other trends into your sleep space.
Look for USB features and organization options in nightstands, alarm clocks, lamps, and even beds for a practical addition to your sleep space that ensures you’re charged up for morning.
Dress up your sleeping space with décor that speaks to your style. This is what’s catching our eye right now.
Use that wall space! Large-scale wall art is definitely trending. Look for colors and abstract patterns that go with your bedroom. These oversized pieces work well above the bed or a dresser.
Add all-over appeal with wallpaper. Whether you choose one wall or cover them all, don’t be afraid to go a little wild. Bold looks, 3D texture, and intricate patterns are all on trend right now.
Plants & Planters
Touches of greenery (real and faux) are showing up everywhere, and we like how they add an organic feel to any bedroom. Terrariums and planters aren’t just for the outdoors.
This year, lighting is just as much about form as it is function. Above-bed chandeliers and pendant pairs add a little something unexpected, and we’re seeing wall sconces take the place of bedside lamps.
2020’s bedroom trends have something for every taste, but they all have one thing in common. Comfort is key. For you, that might mean rich, moody hues; fresh, airy, and light colors; or bright and rejuvenating pieces. Whichever trends you choose to adopt, don’t be afraid to make them your own. Go all in, mix and match, and add your own twist to make your space your own.
