Why go Scandinavian for a bedroom, you ask? The answer is quite simple. Bedrooms are supposed to be for relaxation. You need to feel cosy, warm and comforted in your bedroom. And, can you think of a style that fits the bill? No points for guessing we are talking about the Scandi style. A Scandinavian bedroom has clean lines and neutral colours. Most importantly, this Nordic style is practical and efficient as it steers clear of distractions that can disturb your sense of well-being — hygge — so there’s plenty of natural light and no clutter.  

If you are still not convinced, taking a look at our best Scandinavian bedroom designs will change your mind.  

#1: Quaint space with a view

What we love: The wingback bed that stands for warmth and comfort

The white-grey-wood palette is soothing

Who wouldn’t want a bedroom with a view? If you have a layout similar to this room, you should definitely try this design. You can soothe yourself to sleep by adding in a fully upholstered wingback bed opposite your window. And draw in the heavy neutral coloured drapes whenever you are ready to sleep. 


Wingback furniture was invented to keep people warm during the long winters. Typically, wingback chairs and beds were placed close to the fireplaces.

This bedroom also has shaker style wardrobes and follows the beguiling white-grey-wood palette. If this is your vibe, check out the rest of the Gorgeous 5-Room Condo Makeover With a Mix of Styles. Coming to the accessories, the bed bench and bedside lamp are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional.  

#2: Blue for a sense of calm

What we love: The cool colour scheme comprising aqua blue and grey

Let in more natural light to make the room brighter

This Scandinavian bedroom has an aqua blue wall, light wooden flooring, grey furniture and pops of white. Opting for a colour scheme that uses only cool colours is sure to maintain tranquillity in a bedroom. And the upholstery looks very comfy too. 

We also see ample amounts of natural light, making the room even brighter. Additionally, a simple glass ball floor lamp and track lights are picked for impact lighting. Finally, the wooden side table (that seamlessly syncs with the flooring) is meant for light storage.

#3: A room that is pretty and space-efficient

What we love: The rattan cane wardrobe shutters for its unique woven texture

The bedside pendant light is practical as well as eye-pleasing

Clean, neat and devoid of clutter doesn’t necessarily mean plain or boring. Take this bedroom for example; the monotony of the white and grey is broken by the woven texture of the rattan cane wardrobe shutters. A bedside pendant light and layered drapes complete the room’s requirements. This design is highly recommended for compact spaces.

As ornamentation is not a part of the style aesthetics in Scandinavian style, the only form of decoration comes from patterns and textures. The woven texture of rattan cane, as we see here, is a perfect example. 

#4: Melange of plush soft furnishings and dark wood   

What we love: The chevron patterned wallpaper for its subtle texture

Table lamps are good functional accessories in Scandinavian designs

With clean lines, neutral shades, this bedroom is as Scandinavian as it could be. Again, we can see a lot of grey and white, but what makes this design exquisite (and also our favourite) is the wallpaper with the not-so-obvious chevron pattern. 

Furthermore, the plush bedding and decorative lighting— pendant light and table lamp— amp up the room’s visual interest.

#5: Easy, breezy and absolutely functional 

What we love: The bed with its proximity to the balcony is a keeper!

The minimal, the better

Minimal, airy and fresh, this bedroom with a view reminds us of vacation homes. The entire HDB went through a chic makeover to achieve that staycation vibe. 

This bright bedroom has a simple wooden bed, white bedding, and a white L-shaped wardrobe. What uplifts the room is the wooden flooring and the bed’s close proximity to the balcony. If you are on a budget, remember that you don’t have to change every aspect of the room to get a new look. Something basic like this Scandinavian bedroom can be worth your while. 

#6: A nicely neutral bedroom  

What we love: Clever use of vertical space; see shelf

The dresser uses vertical space efficiently

In a nutshell, this room is essentially neutral with pops of light wood that make it a perfect Scandinavian bedroom. The floating side table is super cute and also a very smart way to furnish a compact bedroom. But what takes the cake is the efficient use of vertical space that we see in the dresser. That corner, which was at an odd angle, has been put to the best possible use.

#7. Sleek, stylish space optimised bedroom in grey

What we love:  Glass doors that enhance the sense of space

A pop of warm wooden flooring

There is nothing quite as chic as glass when it comes to modern design. And the glass doors leading up to this bedroom and its attached bathroom look perfect. Not only does it make the bedroom look more spacious but also looks sophisticated. Additionally, the warm wooden flooring cranks up the room’s aura.

#8. An essentials-only Scandinavian bedroom 

What we love: The luxurious sliding wardrobe that saves space

The plush drapes blend seamlessly with this simple bedroom

The words comfort and bedroom are almost synonymous. This Scandinavian bedroom achieves that cosiness with only the necessary furniture, allowing more space for your thoughts. 

The room features a plain upholstered bed, wooden flooring, a huge luxurious modular wardrobe (with sliding glass doors to save space) and a nightstand. The table lamp and soft furnishings— the drapes, blanket and pillow— are the accents of this snug bedroom.
