There are a wide variety of bedroom interior design ideas. There are certain aspects that are common in all of them and need to be kept in mind while planning the room. Here, we have highlighted all those aspects of modern interior design.
The design of a bedroom depends on a few major factors. The first one is who will be occupying the room. For instance, the design for an adult will be absolutely different from that of a kids' room. Similarly, the size of the room also matters. The plan that will suit a master bedroom will not be right for a small spaced one.

Master Bedroom Design Ideas

The master bedroom is the largest one in your house. Hence, you can get a lot of scope to experiment. You should select a design in a way that it reflects the personality of its occupants.
The color of the walls should have a calm and serene effect on your mind and senses. Therefore, blue, green and lavender are the most popular choice of colors. However, for a more youthful touch, then opt for some warmer colors like misty peach, buttery yellow, delicate pink, light shades of pastels, and so on.
If you are looking for a sober lively atmosphere, then opt for neutral colors like light shades of brown. The furniture should include a double bed, wardrobe, dressing table, side tables, and a writing table.
If there is a terrace attached to the room, then you can keep some formal seating arrangements over there as well. The finish and shades of the furniture should complement the colors of the walls. The lighting of the room should involve proper use of both the artificial light as well as natural daylight.
For artificial lights use spot lights and decorative lamps to make the room bright. Decorate the wall with paintings or artwork or wall hangings or posters. You can give a personalized touch to the room by hanging a collage of family photographs enclosed in a decorative frame.
Use of natural elements like houseplants can make you feel closer to nature. Plants that bear flowers once in a month is the ideal choice for this purpose as they will bring about a change in the look of the room after every few days.

Designing Kids Bedrooms

Traditionally, the pink color is associated with the wall color of the girls bedroom and blue for the boys. However, now, times have changed and you have more number of options available.
Purple, yellow, green, red, pastel, orange, beige are the other popular colors with small kids. Whatever the choice of the colors, ensure it to be a water based one so that cleaning the walls will be an easier task.
Once you have finished painting, decorate the walls with hand painted wall murals. Pictures of fairies, geometrical shapes like squares and rectangles, birds, teddy bears, a cloudy sky, are preferred as girls bedroom designs.
While forest themes, playhouse themes, images of reptiles, wild animals, sports cars are the choice decorations for boys. The safety of the child is your highest priority. Therefore, the ideal flooring option should be covering the floor with carpet or wood flooring.
Keep enough storage space to store their toys, books, crafts and other knick knacks, which need to be stored properly so that the floor space remains free. Apart from the bed and cupboard, include shelving, hanging shelves, freestanding bookcases, etc. as per their requirements.
The room should be adequately lit with table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconces etc. There should be enough fabrics in the form of bed sheets, curtains, pillows, throw pillows, and area rugs to give a softer feel to the room.

For Small Bedrooms

For a bedroom with a small space, the ideas should be simple and the furnishings, the color and the decoration should make it look spacious. Colors like blue and green on the walls can make the room look larger.
Use a paint which has a high gloss finish as it will reflect enough light make the room look more wide and open. The furniture should have a more compact look so that they occupy less floor space. Moreover, a large piece of furniture will look out of place.
Proper storage is very important as they can prevent the room from getting cluttered. You can select such furniture that have storage facilities as well. Make sure there is enough light and airflow inside the room so that it does not look dingy.
Use items made of metals, glass and other polished surfaces for decoration as they can reflect a lot of light. Putting up a well decorated framed mirror on a wall opposite to the window can make the room look even more brighter.
Combine all these ideas to make a unique design that suits your taste, style, and requirements. Just keep in mind that it should not give a cramped look to the room and the look should make you comfortable.
