Bedrooms Are Not Just For Sleep Anymore

Bedroom design in 2013 is transforming sleeping quarters into self-contained retreats

Modern bedroom designers are taking inspiration from hotels and motels to design bedrooms that are a retreat for the consumer. The hottest trends in 2013 are bedrooms that are designed for much more than just sleeping. The bedrooms of today are a relaxing oasis complete with wide screen TVs, minibars and mini refrigerators reminiscent of spa-inspired suites in a chic boutique hotel. The master suites are non-gender-specific “chill” spaces and more self-contained than ever before.

The patterns favor layered texture in raw silk, leather and white linen that both he and she can live with and gone are the doodads and frills. The beds are designed with high, upholstered headboards and also gone are footboards, to provide a better view of the media center and television. However, wall-to-wall carpeting is being replaced by hardwood floors that increase home value and are more flexible and durable. Texture-driven area rugs that can easily be sent out and cleaned now provide comfort underfoot.

Similar to hotel suites music components, minibars and morning coffee stations are vital components to this theme that allow parents to stay self contained in their private oasis for as long as possible before dealing with the rest of the family. With tall lamps on matching bedside tables, putting everything at arms length while sitting up in bed is the pampering focus of this design. Long body pillows that spans the width of the bed are in favor as well as the turned down bed look that puts more focus on the sheets and sleeping pillows.
