Moving into a new apartment or a change of scenery within the familiar four walls? – Before that, there is always the question of the furnishing style in which you would like to live in the future. How should the bedroom be designed? After all, it is the room in which we spend about a quarter of our lives. It is therefore worthwhile to think about its design in advance in order to find the relaxation we desire there.
Classic facilities are out
The bedroom has long since become more than just a place to sleep. It has become a popular retreat that we also like to use to simply switch off and get new thoughts. Perhaps this is the reason for the interesting furnishing trends of recent times. They range from luxurious minimalism to the rustic look of old factory spaces. More and more bedrooms are being designed with the look of decaying industrial buildings. The coarse charm of this reminiscence of old times exerts a special fascination on many people today.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be clinker. The look of bare concrete is also very popular at the moment. And instead of designer lamps, raw sockets with simple light bulbs make the original visual effect of the room perfect. Pallets as a substitute for classic furniture, for example for the bed, have long been a hit in the vintage scene. You can find even more inspiration for the factory loft look on Instagram.

Above all, the atmosphere is important for a restful sleep
