Bedroom Design Idea for Men

Many men love bedroom layouts that convey masculinity and stylish ruggedness, devoid of frivolities, peaceful, and personal. One bedroom design idea that fits this description almost perfectly is the rustic style bedroom decor.

What is Rustic Style Décor?

The word rustic can be used to describe rural, country, or pastoral; plain and simple styles that are almost unsophisticated but certainly stylish.

The rustic decor may not be a favourite of some men who would rather have an ultra-modern styled bedroom but a rustic look is for men that love the simple lifestyle, have a close relationship with nature (enjoy retreats in log cabins and beach homes), and like the 'raw' natural characteristics of materials like brick, wood, cotton, and stone.

Features of Rustic Bedroom Designs

The major features of this style include furniture and decor items made with natural textures - seagrass floor rugs, wood and rattan furniture, faux animal skin, and Hessian textiles.

Simple country-style beds, cabinets, headboards, and wall panelling made of wood, left in its natural finish, stained or painted to give that rustic country feel.

Other features you will find in this bedroom design idea include:

  • Plaid blankets (bed cover)
  • Driftwood table lamps
  • Wall sconces with candle-like fittings
  • Hessian rugs or carpets
  • Country style dressers, chests, and tables
  • Wood beams against a white ceiling
  • Wall shelves for collections - trophies, ornaments, etc...
  • Framed black and white memorable photos
  • Artwork or plaques on walls

Typical colours are subtle natural earth tones and hues of tree bark, natural stones, terracotta, and soil. You will also find dashes of bold brighter hues like red, yellow or even orange within the room blending in the colour scheme.

Major colours are typically quite dark: black, grey, brown, blue and leaf-green. Although you can also add little splashes of bright colours as I mentioned above.

If you want to create a rustic bedroom style you've always dreamed of, and you are a hands-on man looking for inexpensive ways to do so, I recommend this book - rustic farmhouse charm to inspire you and show you how to DIY.

Blend the Modern with Rustic

No one can say you can’t achieve this successfully with great aesthetic results. There is no “either one or the other here.

To a good number of men, a blend of two outwardly disparate decorating styles may require the services of a decorator to put together successfully. But you can achieve a blended look with relative ease if you plan it your design out carefully.

A modern bedroom design with a dash of rustic provides a beautiful balance between raw natural charm and sleek airy minimalism.

This works almost naturally if your bedroom possesses exposed wood beams, pillars, and stone walls.

Renovations and conversion of old mills, lofts, barns, and other age-old interior spaces into dream bedrooms for men can result in superb looking rooms with great personality.

And to add a modern touch, it can be decorated with modern elements, furniture and/or furnishings like steel railings, large expanses of glass, leather, and plenty of white.
