While antique screens and room dividers might not be ideal for contemporary bedrooms, both in terms of practicality and style, one can still draw plenty of inspiration from them. Much like the classic Shoji screens and room dividers used in Japanese design, a perforated wooden room divider is a great option that adds natural warmth to the bedroom. It can easily delineate the bedroom from the living space or home office next to it without blocking light. Simple floating wooden panels offer a more solid solution, while a screen inspired by Mediterranean style offers more artistry and visual flair.
Designs moving away from this ‘contemporary-minimal’ trend also seem to carry a certain sophistication, like the lovely bed frame from Gruppo Tomasella. Combine these with plush bedding, and you have the outright showstoppers like the floating bed from MobilGAM that gives the impression of levitating effortlessly thanks to a transparent base. No matter what your preferred style is, there is something for everyone here!
There are plenty of directions which you can consider before you settle on a headboard for your dream bedroom. There is the DIY option for those who wish to craft one themselves; even while saving a quick buck or two. Then there are those who might want to go the extra distance by using books or old crates to craft a unique headboard that is unlike anything else out there. But today, we are staying away from these quirky headboards and sticking to the sleek, contemporary variants that perfectly fit in with the modern theme.
