The exposed brick wall in a small bedroom is even more fun to work with as it brings an air of warmth and coziness to the modest room. A smart strategy here is to opt for the monotonous look (something we advised against in larger rooms) just to avoid visual fragmentation. This can mean painting the accent brick wall white to let it blend with the rest of the room.
While adding stone to the bathroom will require considerable research in regards to exposure to moisture and wear and tear bedroom stone walls are a far safer option. They are pretty easy to maintain and for those looking to create a magical and inviting rustic bedroom with an air of romantic panache the stone wall is an absolute blessing!
The contemporary variants of the classic Zen style still remain true to many of the original principles but give them a more urbane twist. Since many of us might not wish to adopt that full-fledged Asian look a good compromise is to create a minimal bedroom that is cozy inviting and has a distinct character of its own. This is of course easier said than done and the focus here must be on eliminating clutter while making sure that the bedroom is not too sterile and artificial.
A fireplace in the bedroom obviously offers advantages that go beyond the aesthetic and a simple stone fireplace brings the allure of stone to the room without committing to it fully.
But taking the opposite approach of making the brick wall the focal point in the small bedroom also works at times especially when you want a unique headboard wall! Once again it’s horses for courses and what works in one tiny bedroom might not quite seem equally impressive in another with an entirely different theme and style.
Maybe you are kind of a person and want to showcase your talent with a can of paint on that brick wall! Others might go down the path of smart displays artwork and brilliant lighting. Irrespective of your choice do not be afraid to push the envelope!
