When it comes to design and decoration there is no place more fun than the bedroom.
This is because there are literally no rules regarding bedroom furniture and design.

You can design your room how you see fit; you can showcase your personality and be as creative as you like. If you are considering redecorating your bedroom this year, then you should certainly consider going grey. Over the past few years, we have realised that grey is anything but boring.
From interior design to hair colour, it is something that more and more of us are embracing. If you are ready to give your bedroom a new lease of life, don’t dismiss the colour grey without reading on.
The possibilities are endless
Grey replaces white, cream, or even black in being your neutral or base colour. You can then build upon the grey using colour laying. The good thing about grey is that almost every colour matches it – apart from perhaps brown. Moreover, grey enhances the other colours around it.
Grey teamed with any of the following works beautifully; wine, rose, sky blue, teal, mint, fuchsia, blackcurrant, lemon, navy, and more. The choices are endless, meaning grey does not limit your style.
Nevertheless, if you are looking for more of an ‘in your face’ colour, then think green and red. Our taste for the lavish and opulence is well and truly coming back this year!
Furniture pieces needed for your new grey bedroom
Once you have given some thought to the different colour trends, you should then concern yourself with different furniture pieces. It is all about convenience this year. Think bedside tables, mini fridges, shoe racks, and so on and so forth. Basically, any piece of furniture that will make your life easier. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the modern world, a bedroom should provide a place that is easy, relaxing, and convenient.
When it comes to the style of furniture, there are lots of trends preparing to run riot over the coming months. I’ve already mentioned lavishness and opulence, and this is something very much suited to different furniture styles. Think about luxury materials; soft leather and beautiful faux fur. Think about metallic adornments and intricate details. Make your bedroom a palace, look at the purchase of king-sized beds and other elaborate bedroom furniture.
If the extravagant and the luxurious do not appeal to you, then perhaps vintage will. This is another trend rocketing to the top of the design world at the moment, and it works beautiful with grey too. Look for quaint, special, and precious pieces of furniture. These will stand out by themselves and so will not need any introduction. You will notice a vintage piece straight away because it will captivate your attention. If this is a look you like then you need to make sure that people feel that way every time they step into your bedroom.
Great for small bedrooms
Another great attribute associated with the colour grey is that it is an excellent choice for small bedrooms. You can read lots of space saving ideas for tiny bedrooms online and you will see how grey fits in well with this. Firstly, you are often advised to stay away from dark and rich colours when it comes to small spaces, as these colours can make the space look even smaller.
Furthermore, grey looks great with reflective surfaces and metallic surfaces. These are a must in small bedrooms because the sun will hit such surfaces and bounce back into the room, opening up the space and making it appear a lot bigger than it is. So, not only is grey stylish, but it is clearly very practical too.
If you take note of some of the trends mentioned in this blog post, then you will have the necessary means to give your bedroom the perfect grey makeover. Once considered a boring colour, grey has certainly placed itself at the forefront of interior fashion, so it is definitely a shade worth considering if you are decorating any room in the home, not just the bedroom.
Nevertheless, remember to use these trends but to also stay true to yourself and your style because that is always the most important thing!
