Men’s bedroom ideas – stylish ideas for a sleek sleep retreat

Dark, handsome and dashing is a great mix for any man’s bedroom…

It can sometimes be hard to hit the right note when decorating a man’s bedroom – you want it to be sleek and chic but you don’t want the look to feel clinical. Don’t worry, there’s a host of men’s bedroom ideas that offer easy and achievable ways to create a cool sanctuary that also oozes vibrancy and warmth.

Firstly, introducing reclaimed furniture into space adds texture while also being eco-friendly and stylish. It’s also a good idea to use art and accessories to breathe life into a masculine space. Don’t be afraid to use color either, whether it’s in your soft furnishings or on smaller pieces like lampshades.

Express yourself, be creative, and you can’t go too wrong… But if you need a little inspiration, we’ve rounded up some top men’s bedroom ideas below for a little kick start to that ultra-sleek new retreat.

Men’s bedroom ideas

1. Mix dark shades with matte metallics

A dark paneled wall is a relatively easy way to create a cool member’s club feel in your bedroom. Farrow & Ball‘s Railings is a fantastic deep blue-black hue that’s ideal to pair with matte metallics, like brass or antique bronze, for a plush yet on-point look. Throw in some industrial-style furniture and a black bed frame to up the dark, brooding and handsome factor.

Dark wood is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and it’s not hard to see why; it’s elegant and bold yet not imposing when done right. Use a small chest of drawers for a bedside table and pair with a linen button-back headboard and printed bedding to add extra interest in a stylish way.

Not only are geometrics a sleek, chic way to add pattern and life to a room, they’re also achingly cool right now, yet timeless too. Pair bold printed cushions with a softer printed duvet, and work a different pattern in a coordinating color on the blinds.

Grey has been the go-to color of the last few years and, while greens are making a comeback, grey will always be a popular choice in any men’s bedroom ideas roundups. Use different shades of grey for layering, from your bed to the cushions, duvet, and throws. Finish with some monochrome art for an ultra-chic look.

It’s a myth that men’s bedrooms should always be blue, grey or black; try adding in a splash of bright red for a warming pop of color. When anchored with a dark backdrop it makes for a vibrant yet sleek feel.

Everything reclaimed, recycled and sustainable is having a moment, and for very good reason – not only does it look cool, textured and warm, it’s also eco-friendly and kinder to the planet. Why not install a salvaged headboard and matching bedside table, paired with some timber boards for a statement cladded wall?
