Bedroom designs that are trending in 2017

Sponsored content Feb 16, 2017 Metroland Media

When moving into a rental unit you might feel limited in terms of what you can do to your bedroom to make it feel like your special space. Whether it’s yours alone, or one you share with your partner, you want the room to feel like your sanctuary. Adding a bit of your personal style and flare to a room can really turn an apartment into a home.

Here are few stylish themes to consider for small living spaces that are trending so far this year: 

Classic

Sometimes to stay current you have to look into history, and that holds true with some of the 2017 bedroom designs that are emerging. For example, you can consider a brass nightstand and accents that will still tie in well with an otherwise modern-looking bed chamber.

In fact, indications are that retro themes are set to dominate 2017, and some other ideas to achieve this look include lacquered furniture surfaces and fabric-covered headboards for the bed.

Modern

Of course, if your New Year's resolution was to live in the moment, you'll want to stay current with your decor choices. The trend seems to be leaning towards bright spaces with a lot of natural window light, so swap out those dated curtains for blinds and let some sun in. Instead of boring lampshades, use lights that hang down from the ceiling (making sure there's plenty of head clearance) and sleek nightstand lamps that swivel. 

New for 2017 is the push towards unique wallpaper patterns, but the wallpaper doesn't have to cover the entire surface — you can use it sparingly to highlight particular areas in the room. If adding wallpaper is against the apartment building’s rules, or simply too much trouble, consider bold and bright paint accents in the room (hint: blue and green have been shown to create positive and relaxing moods, but don't overdo it). 

Changing your plastic ceiling fan for an unpainted metal version can instantly add some modern flair.

Futuristic

If you want to be on trend but also be ahead of the pack, there are a few details you can consider. Think about adding a "cosmos" bed that resembles an egg and literally has lights mimicking stars on the interior (go ahead, Google it). Going minimalist can also give the room a futuristic feel — think lighter shades or plain, white walls and rounded furnishings, leaving as much open floor space as possible. Hide away any unnecessary items in closets or shelves.

These rental property tips can be relatively easy to achieve, and you'll still have money left for pizza (but don't eat it in bed).
