But now let's switch to a diametrically opposite bedroom style: the modern style. First of all: what do we mean when we refer to modernity? Designing a modern bedroom means expressing your creativity with an extra touch of style; elegance is an important criterion, but it is also essential to follow the latest trends in the world of design. The modern style is dominated by very pale colours combined with very dark ones, and minimal design alongside the most sophisticated effects: in short, modern style is a combination of contrasts that achieve a strong balance.
Here again, we will start with the basics: what must the modern-style bedroom floor be like? People are experimenting with many different ways of giving an interior absolute modernity: porcelain stoneware bedroom floors are very popular, as are oak parquet and wood-look porcelain stoneware.
One collection that gives the bedroom a completely contemporary tone is Provoak by Provenza: with irresistible naturalness, beauty and variety, it is inspired by the different ways in which oak can be finished. Oak wood and its compact vein patterns are heart of this collection, with a striking versatility that makes it ideal for interiors in different tastes, and especially in the most modern, trendy styles. Pure oak is a choice, exquisite timber with elegant, attractive unbroken vein patterns for a product with a reassuring mood in simple, minimal taste.
Selected salvaged natural oak planks enrich design schemes with a time-worn beauty and give surfaces an impressive personality.
Brushing leaves the surface soft and silky, in variegated shades of grey. The effect of burning with a naked flame gives the oak a particularly dark colour for an even more elegant surface, creating exquisite interiors. The sanding process bleaches the wood, emphasising its vein patterns and giving a three-dimensional effect to its surfaces. Perfect for creating splendid contemporary design schemes.
As we already mentioned, a modern style demands contrasts: a very dark oak bedroom floor goes well with walls in very light shades: feminine, refined pale pink, cream with its blend of classical and modern associations, and grey or taupe, neutral shades that enable the flooring to express all its stylistic power.
Naturally, if bedroom floors in brighter, lighter colours are chosen, the walls must have a darker look, so the colours used may include maroon, dark grey, dark green or midnight blue.
And to conclude, how do we light a modern bedroom? It is simple: the lighting will be cold yet delicate. Instead of the usual hanging ceiling light, fittings with a really trendy effect can be used: spotlights and LED strips are ideal for an entirely contemporary bedroom in line with current fashions.
We will conclude by suggesting another option, different from both the classical and the modern styles: have you very considered a stone bedroom? This gives the whole room an industrial look, following one of the latest fashions. You can achieve this by simply choosing stone-look stoneware as the main material for both the floors and the walls. This will give you a bedroom in perfect "vintage factory" style, which has become very popular in the last few years.
The Cornerstone Alpen by Ergon collection is inspired by the iconic Alpine stones. The vein patterns and tactile effect resemble the natural stone, and this lovely appearance is combined with the best technical characteristics.
Another perfect collection is Ego by Provenza, inspired by an ancient Mexican stone. The collection is completed by the Trame decor, which, combined with the plain tiles, increases the number of design possibilities, and it can be matched splendidly with the Alter by Provenza collection for a truly unique blend of wood and stone.
Now you've read this article you only have to choose: classical, modern or industrial? It's up to you.
