Yes, IKEA bedroom furniture is basic, but that’s the beauty: It can serve as the core furniture for all types of bedrooms, for adults and children, males as well as females. It all depends on how it is styled. The affordable designs are really versatile for creating a bedroom that is comfortable, restful and personal.
The personal aspect is important when designing your layout. Is the space just for sleeping and relaxing or does it need to include space for homework, play, or extra storage? In any of these cases, there are IKEA products that will coordinate with the main bed to create a private space that fits specific needs.
Basic white furniture is a great place to start because it’s a blank design slate. White sets work with any interior and can be jazzed up with bold hues or made more sophisticated with a neutral palette of colors and textures. Or, go bolder, swapping out some of the doors for brightly colored options for a kid’s bedroom. In fact, the options are endless for styling kids’ rooms with IKEA bedroom furniture.
Bold colors pair perfectly with the basic white IKEA furniture. It also makes it easy to change the color scheme by changing the doors. White IKEA bedroom furniture also grows with a child and will likely be useful in some fashion until he or she leaves home.
Natural wood is always a versatile option for the bedroom. This finish also mixes and matches with other IKEA bedroom pieces and is a gender-neutral option. It works well with the white furniture, adding a warm touch for those find the all-white look a bit stark.
For older teens and singles, natural wood and bark finishes can be combined to create an urban chic space that is cool enough, provides ample storage and has room for studying. Shelving and storage accessories make the room modern and urban, while stashing the dresser in the closet makes the most of limited floor space.
No matter what the room size or who the occupant is, IKEA bedroom furniture can be used to create personalized space. With all these examples, the only thing required is a lot of imagination.
