Bedroom Design Ideas for the Modern Home

Castlery   |   Sep 23, 2022

After a long day at work and chores, we all look forward to resting our heads on our pillows and getting a good night's sleep. The bedroom is where we spend the most time, and yet decorations and designs for this space are sometimes neglected. Decorating a small bedroom may be a challenge because there is less space available to be creative. However, there are ways to spruce up the bedroom, even if you have a king sized bed, or live in a studio apartment. Here are a few bedroom design ideas that are suitable for a bedroom of all sizes, styles and ages.


Bedrooms are called as such because of one essential furniture - the bed. Seeing as we spend most of our time on said furniture, comfort is of high importance. While all beds may have the same basic structure, here at Castlery we aim to bring not only comfort, but style into the bedroom. Our classic Hudson Bed matches this with its cool gray headboard, deep walnut base and brass legs, contrasting each other well to bring out the brightness in a lighter toned bedroom.

Reviving mid-century modern styles in any room, the Madison Bed is the perfect choice for any simple yet chic interior designs. Donned in an elegant neutral tone, Madison is a perfect fit into a room of any style. Bisque is a versatile complementary color to any other that does not overpower other colors, and brings out their brightness and tones.

Small Nightstand

While petite in size, the small nightstand can be an interesting addition to your bedroom. Sometimes we just do not feel like getting out of bed to get a drink, and this night stand provides this convenience when placed as a bedside table. Designer nightstands can also considerably add to the style of the bedroom, by bringing in a tone of avant-garde or mid-century modern tone.

Castlery’s Hudson nightstand can be a signature addition to your bedroom, providing both style and functionality. For those looking for a more contemporary design, the Mika Side Table has an unconventional look that adds flair to the room.

Home Decor

A bedroom can always be upgraded with more accessories, and rugs are one of the top choices. A classic rug is the wool rug, with its iconic fuzziness and warmth adding a tone of coziness to the already cozy bedroom. However, as wool rugs are mostly used in winter, other materials such as jute rugs and polyester rugs are breathable and cooling for use during summer. Aside from rugs, the Miles Mirror is not only an exceptional full-length mirror, but also a perfect addition to wood toned or brighter colored bedrooms.

Rugs can also considerably add to style in the bedroom as a flooring accessory, and Castlery rugs come in various shapes and sizes, from large area rugs to small circle rugs. Depending on the bedroom style and temperature, jute rugs such as the Odessa Jute Runner, not only breathable but also an unique style icon for the regal bedroom.

Aside from the bed, essential bedroom furniture for a comfortable and convenient resting space may be a small nightstand, bedside table, and lamp.

How do I choose the right style of furniture for my bedroom?

Many like to match the bedroom interior design style to the rest of the house, though some also like to change things up in the bedroom as a completely different style of design. Depending on the bedroom style, there are various materials and designs you can opt for, e.g jute for minimalist or wool for Scandinavian.
