Small Bedroom Ideas for Men
And speaking of small urban apartments as you know one of the biggest challenges in front of modern design is to find creative solutions for the reality of overpopulated cities and small living spaces. And some of these solutions are so intriguing and beautiful that they are worth exploring even if your man’s bedroom project does not require you juggling with limited or challenging space configuration.
Let’s start with this imaginative project in an XIX-th century building in the historical center of the city of Porto, Portugal. Here the URBAstudios introduced an innovative artistic creation: a room that aimed to be an apartment and turned into a “House”. The fun and creative adventure of modern-day living arrangements are especially visible in the spirit of this place. Entwinement of beautiful wooden floors and elegant wooden lattice structures evokes homey and warm atmosphere. The visual artistry of the double volume image of a house with pitched roof hosts not one but two sleeping areas (one below and one on the top). So here the architects enhanced the strong, universal and simple image that defined the concept and the whole strategy of areas organization and visually transformed the apartment into a House.
Another masculine apartment arrangement that hosts the bedroom into a specially designed wardrobe – the niche is the inspired project “home for him” by the Lithuanian studio Dizu. Ingenious space distribution, cute and characteristic decor elements, inspired color and materials selection and very clever approach towards limited living space are providing a feel of spaciousness and fluid movement for the restrained premises. Proving that the challenge of modern lifestyle and restricted urban living spaces can be an excellent motivator for creative and innovative design approach the designers used inspiration from the Scandinavian simplicity and purity of expression to create this very welcoming, cozy and full of a character home.
Re-imagining the confined space of this urban apartment the Lithuanian design studio Redeco had created a dynamic and stylish decor that captivates with the honest expression of its materials palette anд the bright contemporary arrangement of the limited space. Outlining the different functional zones only by the usage of different textures, colors, and materials (gorgeous wood and trendy brass juxtaposed to simple light textures in the relaxation zones) the designer cleverly outlined without actually dividing the space. This is a great design approach for dynamic lifestyle and for preserving the open space flow, which gives the feel of spaciousness and freedom without denying privacy. The bedroom space is tucked in a cozy niche composed in light colors and warm textural compositions – expressive accent created by the trendy, whitewashed brick wall.
Design solutions for limited urban spaces are always creative, innovative and unique and if we are lucky, they are also playful and vital like is the case of this creation from Vão Studio. Intriguing sculptural design solutions are the floating timber structures and furniture – none of them touches the unusual shine off the floor, and that gives a light, airy atmosphere for the small space. The suspended cube that hosts library on the one side and wardrobe on the other also serves as a space divider between the sleeping quarter and the living room. Row concrete ceilings are juxtaposed texturally to the smooth shine of the turquoise floors and the warm elegance of the furnishing. this creates a dynamic that matches the 18-th floor urban view and is especially suitable for modern men’s dwelling.

But when it comes to beds, there is a specific niche of modern creators and trendy designers that aim to create beds suitable for man’s taste. Rotating flat-screens, safes, iPod docking stations, surround sound and outlets for laptops are just some of the gadgetry that men are apparently looking for when they purchase a bed, and they’re willing to spend big money to purchase a bed equipped with them.

If you don’t like the first thing noticeable in your masculine bedroom arrangement to be the TV there is an option – a TV set safely and stylishly stashed away in the storage area at the foot of the bed, all you need to do is release the set from the storage using the mechanism built into the bed and switch it on to watch a favorite channel, movie, or program.
Bedroom and Bathroom All in One
If you follow the tendencies and the hottest trends in the word’s design scene, you may have noticed that the combo bedroom – bathroom is a very popular choice for luxury projects in the last years. It’s true; it is a bit of controversial choice- you hate it or love it – but here we will try to explore for you the beautiful angles of such a composition and the ways it can benefit your masculine bedroom project.
Using vast glass separations is one of the ways to integrate both premises visually and to achieve spaciousness, unusual perspective and visual extension of the bedroom. And if we have to be honest, such a composition always evokes a sense of luxury and artistic touch. It also has certain leisure-time element in it. Soak for a long time in the tub, towel off, roll into bed: doesn’t this have a vacation time feel in it? A feeling of freedom? Wouldn’t you like to try it at home and experienced it often?
In the artistic project above the element separating this urban bedroom arrangement from the en-suite bathroom and its artful tile mural is a transparent glass wall. It’s a bold detail designed for open-minded people that introduces the visual stylistic of bout premises as one.

Wardrobe and Home Office Bedroom Combinations
In modern life dynamics a home office is very often a necessity and integrating that space with your relaxation area is actually quite an apt choice.

In color psychology, blue is considered to be a relaxing hue that promotes creativity. Same goes for gray just with the added benefit of warm serenity. Both colors are particularly suited for masculine bedroom arrangement and… added bonus… for a home office. Exploit this coincidence. Paint your study’s walls in a bright shade of blue to imbue it with an energetic vibe, or go for a darker tone, like in this study, to convey bold masculinity. And don’t forget the organic, warm presence of wooden cladding: custom-made structures or furniture is always beneficial for the composition of modern man’s privet quarters.
Home offices don’t have to be all about work, these conducive spaces are also the best spots to enjoy a quiet afternoon of reading at home. For a study that isn’t ‘all work, and no play’, inject some yesteryear charm with fun retro accessories as a contrast to masculine elements such as sturdy, dark wood furniture with strong lines.

But let us show you how this furnishing item can be a decorative rather than purely functional element of your bedroom composition. The truth is that a beautiful wardrobe design can transform the appearance of your bedroom, elevating it from ordinary to exceptional.
For most, the walk-in closet is the dream, but let’s face it – how many of us have the space for such an exuberant structure.

Like is the case of this small urban apartment with very stylish and dynamic decor. The designers have chosen to keep the frames of the glass doors in the same shade as the rest of the cladding, bringing a continuance to the design.
Building a wardrobe that covers the entire vertical length of the wall is another functional idea that can have a unique stylist impact (as well as the very practical side of abundant storage space disguised as part of the architectural shell). Alternating dark surfaces of the wardrobe structure with lighter shelving and details create a dynamic and fresh decor.
Sliding doors, mirror, and discreet illuminations are also important details form your wardrobe project. Another possibility for those living in a studio apartment is to turn their wardrobe into a partial wall and use it to separate the living and the bedroom area. A strategically placed wardrobe like this will divide the room into two separate areas and will create a compact storage area.
