100 photos and ideas to paint and decorate bedrooms, rooms or modern rooms

There are many emails and comments that you leave on the blog asking me about how to paint a modern room, what colors are best combined, how to paint a room with this or that color of furniture … etc.

And, although I feel flattered by your questions and your expressions of interest, it is impossible for me to answer those questions correctly, since everyone has their own tastes, and a specific solution for each one would be impossible to answer.

Therefore, and as a very general response I wanted to collect a collection of 100 bedrooms, rooms or modern rooms, painted with different colors and different styles, so you can take your own ideas to paint the bedroom as you like and see with your own eyes how those colors that you have in your room would look.

So without more to say here you have the collection that I have prepared on modern bedroom decor.

Then there will be others that you may or may not want. It is up to you how far you want to go and how many tricks to use.

Cold colors

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: A cold-painted bedroom

Design and photography Juniper Home

We start with the cold tones. Did you know that cold colors when applied to the walls by painting create the effect that the walls “move away”?

This is because They are colors that provide depth, getting this visual effect so good for a small bedroom or a space that we want to make largerDon’t you think

What are the cold colors?

Cold colors are those found in the cold part of the color circle, obviously. Here are some colors:

  • Blue range
  • Green range
  • Lilacs and violets
  • Bluish or greenish gray

The right furniture

Well, this point is basically in case you are going to furnish your room. If you already have it furnished, little can be done.

Although later in the paint tricks to make the room look bigger than we’re going to see, we can still do something with the furniture you already have.

But if you are not going to furnish the room, you can skip this step. This is only for those who are going to furnish it.

I’m not going to roll up much, I’m just going to give you a list of things to consider and suggest some furniture. There it goes:

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: Fair furniture

HomebySoph Photography

  • Use light furniture with straight lines and the lighter the better.
  • Use multipurpose furniture that has more than one function, to save space.
  • Use furniture with legs to see the floor.
  • If you can use suspended furniture such as suspended bedside tables. To see the ground.
  • Convertible beds and sofas.
  • Folding beds that integrate into the closet.
  • High beds with space below to take advantage of the vertical space.

Let’s continue with the following trick:

Apply a monochromatic palette

This is a very interesting trick that can make your room look much bigger.

A monochromatic palette comes to say that all the color in a room is the same.

That is, if you apply a monochrome palette in your bedroom, for example, green, the walls, furniture, textiles and others have to be all green. Even in different tones. Look at the bedroom below:

A monochromatic palette to make your room bigger

Photography Thrifty Decor Chick

Why is this done?

When the eye does not perceive contrast between colors everything seems deeper and, therefore, larger. ← Tweet this.

And if everything is the same color, little contrast will perceive the eye, don’t you think?

This point may seem complicated, but it is simpler than it seems. Here you can see 10 monochrome rooms to see how easy it is and how you can do it in your own room.

Let’s move on to another trick:

Change the perception of space with paint

Another very useful resource to make a room appear larger overall, or wider, or longer, or taller, is to paint certain walls.

See this example below:

Tricks with paint to make your room look bigger

By painting the ceiling and the wall at the bottom of the space with a cold color such as blue, a sense of continuity is created and these areas are made to appear deeper, which results in the space looking more elongated.

It’s just one of the many tricks to transform space with paint You have at your disposal.

Do you want to modify the perception of space? Use a trick of these and see how it changes.

Let’s see another trick.

Mimetiza the furniture with the walls

Do you remember that before I told you that if you had the room furnished then we were going to see a way to take advantage of that furniture to make the bedroom look bigger?

Well, it’s about the following: Paint the furniture the same color as the walls.

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: Painted furniture the same color as the walls

Interior Photography Twin Instagram @ilsevanelleswijk

Why is this done?

To mimic the furniture with the walls and make the space seem deeper.

As I said before, if the eye does not perceive contrast, it will seem that the bedroom is deeper.

And if the furniture is painted the same color as the walls, there will be no contrast.

But it is not the only way to paint the furniture so that they make the room bigger.

If you don’t like this idea we just saw, you can also paint them white.

White is the color that reflects the highest percentage of sunlight, so it will make your bedroom brighter and appear larger.

If you have dark wood furniture, or wood without more, when you paint them in white you will notice a radical change. Believe me, you’re going to say, But where did this space come from?

Once you get used to wooden furniture, when you paint them white, that first moment is surprising. Everything seems lighter, wider and is much brighter.

Let’s keep going.

Make it look taller with paint

We can also make the bedroom look taller, using only paint.

How?

Very easy, paint the walls up to 10 cm or so below the ceiling.

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: Paint the walls until you reach the ceiling

In this way, we will make the ceiling look taller, that it is higher, and therefore, that the bedroom has a higher height as well.

It is not the only trick there, here you can see others 12 tricks to make the roof look taller.

Let’s see the following:

Paint stripes on the walls or ceiling

Do you know why a horizontal striped shirt makes us fatter? Because we guide the eye from one side to the other making us look wider.

The same principle can be applied to walls and ceiling.

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: Paint vertical or horizontal stripes on the walls

Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss Photography

And not only horizontally, but also vertically.

If we paint any horizontal striped wall, we will make the room look wider or deeper.

If we paint a wall with vertical stripes, we will make the room look taller.

Not only paint, striped wallpapers also create the same effect.

Let’s continue with another trick.

Purge the bedroom

The guide you need to make your bedroom look bigger: Keep the space clear and in order

How many things do you have in your bedroom that you don’t use? Think about it. Look at it carefully.

Now get them out of him.

You are wasting space and making the room seem smaller.

It is drawer, the more loaded a space is, the more crowded and small it will seem.

What do you gain by removing what you don’t use? You make the space look bigger, and also bright, because the light has fewer obstacles to reach every corner.

It is a simple step that in less than 20 minutes you can carry out.

Let’s see the following.

Leave the ground free

You know what One of the biggest effects to make a site look bigger is to leave the ground free? Yes it is. Both for the body and for the eyes. I explain:

If the eye perceives the free ground, it will seem like a clear and wide space.

If the feet can walk freely, without obstacles, the body will tell the brain that it sits in a wide and clear space.

The guide you need to make your room look bigger: Leave the floor clear

Vintage Revivals Photography

So that, Just try this: That you see as much of the skirting board as possible.

Look at your skirting board. Can you see a lot or is it covered by furniture and so on?

Ok, now try to clear it.

On many occasions it is not possible, since precisely what is covering the baseboard and hiding the floor are the bed, the dresser, the closet and other furniture that we do need.

In this case, only one thing can be done: Lift the furniture.

If the furniture does not have legs and they are glued to the floor, the bedroom will seem more crowded, because smaller amount of floor is seen.

If the furniture has legs and the floor is seen, even the baseboard, the room will appear more spacious.

If your furniture is glued to the floor, you do not want to put them or you can not put legs, or you will change them, you can try another distribution if possible. If it isn’t, forget about this point, and move on to the next one.

Remember, although they all add up, do your best.

Next.

Use the heights. Think vertically

There are many ways to take advantage of the space in a small bedroom, but one of the most effective is to take advantage of the high.

But you have no idea how much until you take them off. It’s amazing.

Did you know that Nordics in winter have about 5 hours of sunlight? Well, if you go around Pinterest, Instagram or any other social network of images and look at Nordic style rooms and Nordic bedrooms, you will see that most do not have curtains.

This tells us several things.: That the people who know most about optimizing the light do not use curtains, or, generally, do not use them. (There must be a reason). And that a room without curtains can be equally beautiful and modern. We just have to take a look at several of the Nordic bedrooms that we see around to see the style they have.

Add mirrors

When I was little, the school took us on an excursion to Zarzuela, the palace where the King of Spain lives or lived.

And among dozens of huge long corridors we saw, the woman who guided us stood in the smallest of all. It was a hall that did not even have 6 square meters.

In that hall, each of the two walls was completely covered by a mirror.

The woman explained to us, since we were children of 6 and 7 years old, that this was done to make that particular small hallway seem much larger, almost infinite. And he made us put each one in front of a mirror to see the effect.

Indeed, as you can imagine, the hall seemed really infinite.
