Modern vs. Contemporary
While the two tend to get confused, they are uniquely different in several aspects. The two are alike in the way that they incorporate a variety of styles into one beautiful design. However, modern separates itself from contemporary with clean cut lines and a focus on balance as well as minimal décor. Everything in the modern design realm is simple yet efficient.
Here is our gigantic gallery of modern master bedroom design ideas. We’ve included charts and tables at the bottom of the page to provide you with data gathered from hundreds of thousands of master bedrooms. They point out which colors and flooring options are most popular, as well as what other options people have chosen for their modern sleeping chambers.
8 Tips on How to Design a Modern Bedroom
While the size might not be an option for a modern master bedroom, color options and materials become incredibly important with this style. These charts and graphs illustrate what options were most frequently found inside of a modern bedroom.
1. Color Conscious
The modern design color palette can vary greatly but finds its core centering around neutrals like white or beige as well as black. Out of 332,061 bedrooms analyzed, white was chosen 19.93% of the time with beige and black trailing behind at 10.61% and 5.45%.
It is important to note that the modern color palette utilizes a striking color to accentuate itself. These could be bold greens, medium to dark reds, popping oranges, or even varying shades of blue. Violet and pink, however, were found the least. Aside from color, modern design also focuses on exposed metals and woods.
2. Wood Floors for the Win
The modern bedroom often chooses to utilize exposed woods in its flooring. Different types of hardwood flooring were found in 50.27% of 165,175 the bedrooms we analyzed.
Ceramic and Porcelain tiles can also be used, as well as vinyl or linoleum. A surprising 1.70% of bedrooms even featured concrete. When sticking with carpet, which 41.14% of bedrooms chose to do, plaids work wonders for modern master bedroom design ideas.
3. Modern Bedroom Ceiling Design
One interesting aspect of modern design is the ceiling. There are many types of ceilings, and while most people invest in regular ceilings, there are some master bedrooms with spectacular ceilings such as the cathedral, vaulted, wood beams, murals or as simple as being elevated with a modern chandelier.
When looking at the modern design of any type, notice the details such as flooring, ceilings, furniture and colors. In some cases it’s very, very interesting.
4. Modern Bedroom Lighting
A frilly chandelier is not a modern bedroom make. Instead, look toward recessed lights, built-in wall lighting, tray ceiling lighting. The aim is no fixtures or small fixtures. Yes, many of our examples above and below include various lamps (modern lamps can look fabulous on nightstands), but avoid any clustering of anything and that includes lights.
5. Bed Design
There isn’t one-bed style or design for the modern look. However, the style you normally get are beds with straight lines and often lower to the ground, like that of a platform bed. You can learn everything about beds in our types of beds epic article (one of our most popular).
6. Decorating a Modern Master Bedroom
You want to keep decor knick knacks to a minimum. Modern lighting art artwork is good; knick knacks is bad. Modern design is sparse and often minimalist. Now, if it’s contemporary you seek, that’s a different matter altogether. Contemporary allows for more “stuff” such as shelving, lamps, etc.
7. Ten Trends
Even though modern is a specific style, there are still trends within the style. Here are some key trends.
Size: bigger is better. The current trend is to design large master bedrooms.
Electronics: some, but wires concealed – i.e. wall-mounted TV. Charging stations for devices.
Floor: natural light wood
Windows: floor-to-ceiling with smart blinds
Seating: yes, yes, yes – sitting areas such as reading nook, armchairs, etc. are popular in modern master bedrooms. You’ll see several examples below.
Master bathroom: Yes – and like bedroom size, bigger is better. We’re talking both freestanding tub and walk-in showers, two sinks… the whole nine yards.
