It's fast approaching that time of year when we all plan to make resolutions. For some, it’s about health and fitness and for others it might be to change jobs or learn more through further education.

Usually, there is a high percentage of people determined to declutter and get rid of old admin, old clothes or furniture that is clogging up their home and taking up much needed space. It might just be emptying a drawer, or it could be completing the transformation of a room, but studies have shown that decluttering can help to relieve stress levels and depressed moods.

With your bedroom being the place you retire to at the end of a busy day, a minimalist bedroom design may help to create a more relaxed, restorative aesthetic. If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some minimalist bedroom ideas.

To create that minimalist design, focus on clean lines, refined palettes and above all else keep things as simple as possible. In a minimalist bedroom, everything has a purpose or function. Look around your bedroom and work out what you need – if it isn’t useful and you don’t love it, then it’s time to say your farewells!

When it comes to colours, it’s easiest to start with plain old faithful white, which provides a blank canvas for you to build on. That could be using pictures/photos on the walls, a rug or a textured throw for your bed. Creating simple, clean layers will help you to create that minimalist bedroom design but also allow you to inject some personality. By making white your main colour, you could also create a minimalist Scandinavian style bedroom – pairing it with natural textures such as wooden floors and throws.

If you’re keen on creating a minimalist bedroom, each piece of furniture can help to shape your décor. As one of the main pieces of furniture, having a minimalist bed can help to dictate your aesthetic. Have a simple approach, with a pared-down frame, nothing chunky or colourful. Height can also make a difference – those serious about this type of design would say that the bed frame should be lower to the floor.

If you’re not in a position to redecorate your room entirely and you are trying to create a minimalist room on a budget, there are several things you can do:

Remove any unnecessary items, whether it’s furniture, pictures or old clothes you no longer wear.

Paint the walls white and invest in some white bedding.

Introduce some outdoors to your room in the form of plants - not only do they purify the air, but they also provide a splash of colour and can be relatively inexpensive.

All being said, your bedroom should be a place where you can relax and unwind. While it’s great to de-clutter, don’t feel you need to remove everything that is unnecessary – if you like it, it serves a purpose, so keep it!!
