The bedroom is that place you retire to at the end of the day. It is the space where one retreats to when they want to relax and recharge. It’s therefore important to approach the décor and design of these rooms with great care.
Your personal preferences should be your top priority when choosing bedroom décor. This is vital for creating a space that is intimate and comfortable. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t consider the latest trends for inspiration.
Here’s what we expect to see in bedroom wallpaper for 2020.
Wallpaper trends for 2020
There are various bedroom wallpaper trends we expect to see in 2020. Consider them when choosing your wall treatment.
In the past, the trend was to shy away from large prints or bold colors in the bedroom. The general idea was that the bedroom is a place to rest and relax. Striking prints and colors were thought to be too stimulating.
2020 brings with it dramatic changes to traditional bedroom wallpaper ideas. Wallpaper is no longer just about setting the backdrop to the bedroom’s color theme. It’s about adding interest. Keep your bedroom from looking boring by adding wallpaper with a unique print.
Some prints that will prove to be popular in 2020 include:
- Imitations of surfaces, e.g. brick wallpaper bedroom prints
- Geometric motifs such as circles, points, zigzags and lines
- Maritime themes, e.g. anchors, boats and seagulls
- Plants and flowers including large prints of leaves or smaller prints of flowers in varying tones
- Art wallpaper which consists of drawings or paintings
Combining different shades
If prints aren’t your thing, you can add interest in your bedroom by combining different shades of wallpaper. Create an accent wall with a bolder shade and go with lighter or more muted tones for other walls.
Another great way to add interest in your bedroom is by combining different textures. This is a lot more complex than it sounds. There are various factors to consider such as the height and size of the room and the thickness of the wallpaper.
You may see trends such as using two or more types of wallpaper that have vertical stripes. Such a combination will result in an increase in the area of the bedroom and is great for bedrooms with low ceilings.
Bedroom wallpaper color trends for 2020
Color is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing wallpaper. Whether you’re going for bold prints or combined textures, the final effect of the wallpaper will vary depending on the color of the wallpaper.
Some colors we expect to be a hit in 2020 include:
Grey bedroom wallpaper is becoming a favorite. This is mostly because of the influence of clean and minimal Scandinavian styles in interior décor.
One of the best things about using grey bedroom wallpaper is its versatility. You can combine this color with various other shades including burgundy, purple, blue and green. It creates a great backdrop for creative and original interiors. We expect to see more use of this shade complemented with bright furniture and decorative pieces.
Many people avoid using black in their bedrooms, especially if they are small. However, 2020 will see an increase in the use of black and white in the bedroom to create an element of contrast. Using these colors in combination with light-colored furniture creates a touch of luxury with a modern twist. Add a touch of fun and color with brightly colored art pieces and decor elements.
Pink is no longer a color reserved for girls bedroom wallpaper. In 2020, we expect to see more use of pink bedroom wallpaper, but not the traditional pink shades. There’s increased interest in the use of pale pastel pink shades.
Dusty rose is especially great for creating a luxurious feel in the bedroom. This shade of pink combined with shades such as coral, beige, gold and grey will create a warm and calming environment that is the perfect place to rest and recharge.
Gold is set to make a return in 2020. This classic wallpaper is perfect for adding a touch of luxury. The shade is perfect for both small and large bedrooms. Use it on an accent wall to create interest. The bright wallpaper will make a small bedroom appear larger. It’s also a great way to make a room look brighter.
Combine the gold wallpaper with rich dark wood or light colored beddings for an elegant finish.
This is another classic wallpaper color that is set to make a comeback in 2020. It fits well with just about any interior scheme and can be combined with a variety of contrasting colors. This color will help to create a warm and calming environment. It can be used to make a small room look larger while making a larger room look comfortable and inviting.
If you’re planning to change the look of your bedroom in the coming year, consider some of the suggestions above for creating a restful retreat. Don’t be afraid to combine different shades and textures or add printed wallpaper for an inspiring space.
