The last few years have seen a steady increase in the desire of homeowners to move away from cookie-cutter design and glossy contemporary interiors towards a more unassuming stripped-down style.
Most doors take up extra space because of their swinging motion something that many of us simply cannot afford in the small bedroom. We want doors that stay out of the way and get the job done by taking up as little square footage as possible.
A popular misconception among design enthusiasts is that the barn door is only suitable for bedrooms with a rustic or farmhouse flair. In fact this is exactly opposite of the truth and these gorgeous wooden wonders look even more appealing when they slide their way into contemporary bedrooms.
One amazing feature of Scandinavian bedrooms is the neutral backdrop that they offer making it possible for you to decorate with statement pieces and sculptural additions in a truly exquisite fashion.
Balance this by using decor that shouts out tropical and introduces textures that are as nature-centric as possible. If you want a bedroom that combines both the tropical and coastal styles then throw in a few ship wheels and starfish along with a bamboo bed frame and pops of corals and greens to get the best of both worlds!
This has resulted in a phenomenal increase in home renovation projects that pay homage to their simpler past adaptive reuse of structures and materials in the most brilliant fashion and a partial revival of styles such as industrial rustic and farmhouse. It is this movement towards the simple that has led to many designers using the classic in modern bedrooms.
As taxing as the whole experience can be at the end of the day an expression of joy on their faces is all it takes for us to feel that the entire topsy-turvy ride was worth it all!
