Insider asked interior designers who bedroom style trends are hot and which are not this spring.
Custom headboards can add interest to the bedroom and canopy beds are back with a modern twist.
All-white bedrooms, matching furniture sets, and “headboards” on accent walls are losing popularity.
Sheepskin and fur textures are trending.
Lindsey Jamison, lead interior designer at Rumor designs and HGTV 2021 Designer of the Year, told Insider that fluffy fur textures are trending in the bedroom this season.
“We see sheepskin, fur and faux fur popping up in bedrooms because of the extra coziness and comfort that these materials provide“, said Jamison.
You can try this furry trend with throw rugs, accent pillows or chairs, or blankets.
Rounded bedroom furniture is in the spring.
Add softness to your sleeping space by swap rectangular furniture for rounded pieces.
“Round-edged bedroom furniture is big right now,” Jamison said. “Curved headboards are especially popular.”
Wellness areas are a hot trend in bedrooms.
Interior designer Brittany Farinas from house of one told Insider that more and more bedroom designs are including wellness spaces.
“Whether it’s a separate spot for yoga or a peaceful meditation nook, in-bedroom wellness is definitely on trend,” Farinas said.
If you don’t have the extra space to dedicate to a wellness areatry to use colors and textures that promote tranquility.
Custom headboards are a fun option.
Susannah Watts, Owner and Chief Designer at Swatts & Co creative studiosaid custom headboards are a major spring design trend.
“We’re seeing more custom headboard styles, including headboards with built-in nightstands and channel tufts,” Watts said.
You could even offset some of the cost of ordering a custom piece of furniture by working with a local company to design your headboard.
Accent ceilings are in this season.
Although the popularity of statement walls is waning, Watts told Insider that accent ceilings in the bedroom are having a moment.
“Go for an accent ceiling in your favorite color or even use wallpaper for more personality,” Watts said.
For a more subtle look, consider retexturing your ceiling or installing crown molding.
Canopy beds are growing in popularity.
The classic canopy bed gets a makeover this spring with clean lines and modern materials.
“Canopy beds are a big trend this season,” Farinas said. “Imagine a hanging metal frame with fabric draped over it, not a traditional four poster canopy bed.”
Stick with airy fabrics and a minimal frame to make your canopy bed look mature and stylish.
On the other hand, diamond tufting looks old fashioned.
trends like the diamond-tufted headboard falls out of favor.
“Diamond tufting was overkill in the early 2000s and now these headboards look extremely dated,” Watts said.
Instead of going for the diamond style, Watts recommended trying the channel trend (tufted vertical lines) or even tufting the entire wall behind the bed.
All-white or gray bedrooms are out of fashion.
Bold colors are replacing white and gray as a vibrant spring trend.
“We’re seeing fewer and fewer all-white, neutral bedrooms,” Watts said. “People are starting to crave color in the bedroom.”
If you don’t want to totally revamp your bedroom, Watts recommends add some bold pops of color through the curtains and pillows.
Multiple layers of pillows can feel like overkill.
“Multiple layers of pillows can be cumbersome to maintain and they often get thrown on the floor,” Jamison said.
More minimize your pillow collection can make bed much easier.
Jamison recommended using just two standard shams and one large lumbar pillow.
The accent wall “headboards” are out.
Decorate with an accent wall behind the bed instead of a headboard is a fading pattern.
“Accent walls lock you into one style and can’t be rearranged,” Watts said. “Plus, you can’t even see them when you’re in bed.”
Ditch the matching furniture sets.
Swap out your matching furniture sets for a more personalized approach.
“Mixing bedside tables and chests of drawers with different finishes and textures adds interest and makes a space eclectic“, Jamison said.
Shopping at thrift stores or flea markets is often a great way to find unique pieces that won’t break your budget.
