Design a minimalist bedroom by concentrating on making the space restful and relaxing and showcasing the "less is more" philosophy. Keep decorative elements to a minimum, displaying only what is truly loved by the occupant.
- Address needs
Bring in a bed, bedside tables and other pieces the occupants need to be comfortable. A checklist should include a comfortable place to sleep, a surface on which to place drinks or other necessities and entertainment consoles, such as a television wall mount, depending on individual needs for the space.
- Choose a focal point
Hang a favorite piece of artwork above the bed, or use a pair of antique lamps as inspiration for decorating the rest of the bedroom. Choose a monochromatic color scheme based on the focal point.
- Dress up the bed in solid colors
Choose a comforter or duvet in a solid color with little patterns or trimmings to create a minimalist design. For contrast, make up the bed with crisp white sheets and pillow shams in complementary colors.
- Accessorize sparingly
Choose simple window treatments or none if privacy is not an issue. Place only a few decorative elements around the space to reflect the occupant's personality while sticking to the minimalist design.
