Masculine design usually consists of dark colors, rich textures, and a laid back sense of style. Though these attributes are considered masculine, they can also have a very neutral appeal that is great for both genders, depending on where along the line of masculinity it falls. Vintage elements work really well in a masculine space, especially in bedroom design. Incorporating antique furniture, picture frames, and other accessories add rich history and flavor that suit this style well. However; a modern vibe is also easy to achieve with the right style choices. Here are 10 examples of masculine bedroom design to give you some ideas.
Masculine Bedroom Design
1 The dark grey walls follow all the way up to the ceiling, encapsulating this space in a rich coziness that is accented by white trim. A charming, simple selection of vintage artwork and frames adorn the walls.

2 A black wallpaper with a subtle pattern gives the walls depth, while pops of white in the curtains and furniture brighten up the space. Mirrors flanking the bed help reflect more light while also mimicking the sheen of the wallpaper and end tables.

3 This room proves that masculine style doesn’t always have to mean ‘dark’. The rich blue of the sofa brings dimension to a space full of whites and neutrals. The general unfussiness of the bedroom design lends itself to a masculine appeal.
4 Another example of a lighter, brighter masculine vibe. Clean lines, grey accents, and warm neutrals make this a space that either gender could feel comfortable in.
5 The metal headboard is the epitome of masculinity, serving as the perfect statement piece for this industrial chic bedroom design.
6 Elegant, rich textures create a cozy retreat. Though the design is predominantly masculine, you can see the his and hers influences around the bed. The flowers on the end table are a touch of femininity, while the floor lamp gives some character to his side.
7 A wall of mirrors behind the bed reflect so much light that you can hardly tell at first glance how many dark elements are in the space. The dark and the light are well balanced through pattern and layering of color.
8 Sepia tone and black and white photos add some classic elegance to this space, popping beautifully against the dark grey backdrop. The zebra rug is a nice funky touch to add some playfulness to the design.

9 Plaid gets a chic makeover on this masculine headboard. The color palette of the space seems to be inspired by it, pulling out the warm neutrals, blues and orange.

10 The suitcase end table is that vintage flair I was talking about that works so well in masculine bedroom design. The wood bed has a strong presence that is given a contemporary flair with grey and white bedding.
