With 2023 just around the corner, the bedroom experts at MattressNextDay have conducted extensive research to predict the biggest bedroom trends of 2023.

They’ve then enlisted their CEO and sleep expert, Martin Seeley, to share how to make each bedroom trend as sleep-friendly as possible.

Downtown Girl

What’s the trend? 

The Downtown Girl interior trend is inspired by the apartments in Downtown New York and what they look like in autumn/winter. It’s all about creating a space that’s both functional and stylish while incorporating materials like concrete and wood that are both modern and timeless at the same time. Think of pre-loved vintage furniture, moody colours, and personality-driven accessories like record players, guitars, and books.

How can this trend positively impact your sleep

Martin Seeley, the CEO and sleep expert at MattressNextDay said: “From the guitars to the pre-loved furniture, this trend focuses heavily on nostalgia.”

“However, you may not know that nostalgia has been proven to be an effective sleep aid, meaning those with the Downtown Girl aesthetic are more likely to get a good night’s rest every night. This is because studies have shown that memories that evoke a positive emotional response help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer than those that don’t.”

How to create the trend at home?

Suzanne Roynon is an international interior therapy expert and feng shui consultant. She said: “These calm, earthy tones will provide a degree of stability, reassurance, and a sense of belonging.  Avoid becoming too earth-bound with excellent lighting”.

As Suzanne recommends, incorporating dim lighting and more rustic materials will warm up the space.

Cool Nature

What’s the trend? 

The calming tones bedroom trend is a decorating style that uses soft colours and natural materials to create a soothing environment. This trend is beneficial for those with insomnia, as it can help you fall asleep faster and get better sleep overall. Using natural materials in a calming bedroom also has the added benefit of being good for your health.

How can this trend positively your sleep? 

Martin said: “The calming tones bedroom trend can be used in any room in your house, but it’s especially beneficial in bedrooms. When we’re sleeping, our bodies undergo various changes that help us relax and fall asleep faster. Many people find their mind racing when falling asleep, making it difficult to relax enough to sleep comfortably. Therefore, soft colours and natural materials help reduce stress and relax your mind, making it easier to drift off into slumberland.”

“Also, keeping your space minimalist and free of clutter can improve sleep quality. A study discovered that a tidy, clean room can result in fewer sleep-related problems, which could be another reason to embrace this trend.”

How to create the trend at home

Martin said: “The best way to create the Cool Nature trend is by using organic fabrics. This includes bamboo cotton sheets, organic cotton duvet covers and even wool blankets. These materials will give your bedroom a more relaxed feel, which is exactly what this type of design wants to achieve.”

“You should also use earthy colours so that everything matches and looks cohesive. You can choose from warm browns or yellows, or even greys if you prefer something cooler looking. Make sure all the pieces fit together and don’t clash too much. Finally, wood accents such as wooden furniture pieces work well with this design because they add warmth and texture without being too overpowering.”

Dark Romance

What’s the trend? 

The Dark Romance bedroom trend is about creating an intimate space that evokes a sense of mystery and intrigue. It’s about creating a space where you can escape from reality and enjoy the company of your partner or loved one. Essentially, the trend focuses on making everything feel soft, warm and sensual.

How can this trend positively impact your sleep

Martin said: “People who sleep in rooms with softer lighting tend to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer than those who don’t have access to soft lighting. And people who sleep in rooms with darker colours tend to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer than those who don’t have access to darker colours. The reason behind these findings? Darker colours promote relaxation, which leads to better sleeping patterns overall.”

How to create the trend at home?

Suzanne said you should exercise caution when looking at this trend. “In Feng Shui, these very dark colours enhance water energy, and with this can come emotional mood swings.”

“This is a stunning space for a couple of romantic nights in a hotel, but when used long-term in a home, you may experience tears, tantrums and overwhelm, which put pressure on the occupants. Although it’s great to sleep in a very dark room, waking up to it may feel oppressive, so use these deep colours with caution.”
