Add a Modern Ceiling Fan

Long gone are the days when people would use ceiling fans only as some cooling devices. Today’s modern ceiling fans not only cool your body efficiently but also serve a multitude of other purposes.

Even better is installing a through-the-wall AC unit that looks like a small window to give the room a more ventilated and airy feel. 

Well, the possibilities are endless. Heck! You can even use them as the centerpiece of your bedroom or living room. This will significantly improve the aesthetics of your rooms instantly.

Minimalist Room Decor

For quite some time now, minimalist room decor ideas have been popular in town.

Especially for millennials and youngsters.

Mostly minimalists tend to decorate their bedroom because it’s the one place where you go to clear your mind, take a breather, and the most comfortable place for you to escape.

Let’s take a look at what minimalists add to their room.

Lights Around The Window

If you have a big window in your room then you could add some ferry light on there. I think you’d agree when I say that it’s a great idea – especially if you want the ‘su casa’ element in your home and are one of the best minimalist room decor ideas.

Though lights are amazing, soothing, and very mood centric; you don’t need to add multi-colored lights. It completely eliminates the concept of “minimalism.”

But, if you don’t have a window above your bed, you can always stick the lights on the wall overhead.

Majority of the girls out there love this idea.

Dark Bed Sheets

The entire concept of cool room decor is to make sure that you have a cozy home. You need to pay special attention to the colors that you decide to pair up.

Remember, not everything goes with everything (it’s a lot like fashion if you look at it). Anyway, as I was saying, if you pick a specific color theme, stick to it in one area, and not the entire house. For the rest of the house, you could go for something that matches your theme.

Which is why you should never add a dark tone to a dark hue. You could add a dark hue and a light tone or visa-versa.

For instance, always keep your walls light and your bedsheets dark.


Adding a carpet is always a good idea. It’s soft, goes with your theme, and your personality.

For example, placing a tiny table at the end of your carpet with a chair (if you want) – only makes your room cozier.

Take a look at the image above to understand what I’m trying to say.

Room Without a Bed

The image above is something that you only see in movies – where the house has a complete Boho vibe.

But did you know that it’s a lot more comfortable to be able to sleep on just a mattress? It’s fun too.

To be honest, it’s something different, and not your mainstream basic decor in 99.9% of houses.

Moreover, there are plenty of mattresses companies that design mattresses that are indented to be used without the bed. Voonky can help you with some reliable reviews on the mattresses and its feel. So try this sober yet fancy decor to make your bedroom elegant.

Hipster Room Decor

Okay, so you know that the basic and entire concept of cool room decor is nothing but portraying your personality in a stylish way, right?

One of the most common personality traits among youngsters nowadays is “hipster.” And of course, they want their homes to look ‘hip’ too.

Take a look at the image below to have a better understanding of hipster decor.

Does it look messy to you?

Even if it does look messy, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t look nice. It’s a nice kind of messy, don’t you agree?

Peg Board

Hipsters are all about cool room decor and  doing things their own way, which is why having a pegboard in as a part of your decor is a great idea.

Pegboards are a great way for you to make your own quotes and display your thoughts.

Grafomap Poster

Part of being a hipster is having your own Grafomap poster.

These maps play a huge role in soothing aesthetics. Graphomaps posters can also be personalized to your liking and to your style.

Take a look at the image and see how well this map goes with the entire theme of the room.

This is one of the most hipster room decoration ideas.
