7 Mediterranean Bedroom Ideas to Consider For Your Custom Home

December 14, 2023

Mediterranean style often brings to mind feelings of warmth and tranquility which are perfect for a bedroom. Here are some Mediterranean bedroom ideas to consider for your custom home:

1. Begin With a Neutral Backdrop

These neutral colors will be perfect for any bedroom, but particularly work well when paired with Mediterranean style.

Starting with a theme is a great place to start if you’ve been wondering how to decorate with neutrals. A theme allows you to change some decor here and there, but still keeps some continuity in the room.

2. Feature Exposed Beams

3. Add Some Tile

Have you wondered how to incorporate tile accents into your custom home design? A bedroom might not seem like the best place for patterned tile but since it’s such a hallmark of Mediterranean style, it’s worth it to find a place for it. Think out of the box here and incorporate tile through a patterned mirror or bedside stands.

You can also try tiling a fireplace if that’s part of your bedroom design. However, if you want a showstopper floor, go all out with some mosaic or other patterned tile. If you’re worried about cold floors, you can ask for radiant floor heating.

4. Incorporate Arches

Arches are one of the classic hacienda architecture design ideas and they are a common design element in Mediterranean design and can be incorporated into your bedroom. Ask for an arched doorway either leading into your bedroom or connecting to a bathroom or even closet.

However, if you don’t want permanent arched doorways, incorporate arches via a headboard or mirrors. Getting creative with headboards and mirrors is often one of the popular bedroom design trends and can help you incorporate a Mediterranean look and feel in a subtle way.

5. Layer Color

Choose a few different tones of blue to layer throughout your room. Pick a dark sapphire blue, or sky blue, and choose a medium blue to round out the color scheme. This will add depth to your color schemes and is one of the tips for decorating with bold colors.

For a more modern feel, mix in some citrus shades with your blue and white. Colors like tangerine or lemon mimic the Mediterranean coast. Use these shades for bed linens or artwork.

6. Bring in Floralsdetail of master bedroom with crown molding around the ceiling and recessed lights

Florals are a great way to bring some life to your bedroom. Floral wallpaper is a great idea for using custom accent walls. Or, hang some floral artwork on the wall. You can also choose pillows or bed linens with a small floral print as well.

However, you can always bring fresh flowers into your bedroom. Not only does this add a pop of color and some freshness, but it also guarantees new decor every week or so. You don’t have to stick to the same flowers every week. You can change it up and have fun experimenting with a variety of seasonal flowers to spruce up your home.

7. Choose Weathered Wood

If you want some classic Mediterranean-style charm, choose furniture that has a weathered wooden look. This can be all of your bedroom furniture if you like. But if you want some variety, choose one or two pieces in this finish.

You can also choose a weathered wood floor for your bedroom. There are many flooring options available, but a weathered wood will fit the Mediterranean style best.

These are just a few Mediterranean bedroom ideas to consider for your custom home.
