10 Minimalist Finds for Your Bedroom
These functional finds make for great additions to your room.
(SPOT.ph) It's no surprise that minimalist rooms still pop up on Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards after all this time. They're simple, clutter-free, aesthetically pleasing, and gives you a sense of respite especially after a long and busy day (heck, just looking at them on IG is already relaxing!). But there's a fine line between a space that exudes carefully crafted minimalism and one that just looks plain and boring so it's important to choose pieces for your room that marry both form and function. Here are a few items that not only look great, but also work great.
Spruce up your bedroom with these chic minimalist finds:
Full Length Mirror (P9,690) from Nooke
The thing to keep in mind when choosing pieces for a minimalist space is that the simplicity of their aesthetic needs to also serve a practical function—this slim, full-length mirror from Nooke is a great example. It’s made of mahogany wood and designed with a ledge for holding beauty essentials or displaying your favorite decor. It’s neither loud nor ornate, but makes a statement nonetheless.
Wisdom Wardrobe (P21,950) from Urban Concepts
This two-door wardrobe from Urban Concepts features two small drawers, a fabric box drawer, and a pole hanger that you can use to display your fave pieces or outfits for the week. It also has a platform you can use as extra storage space for bags or shoes.
Wall Mounted CD Player (P2,950) from Ben & Bart
This space-saving CD player from Ben & Bart is perfect for music lovers with a minimalist aesthetic. It can be propped up on the desk or mounted on the wall— it comes with a stand and wall mount—and has a remote control for added convenience, too. Best of all, it can play music from a CD, Bluetooth, AUX, USB, or even FM radio!
MALM Bed Frame (P24,150) from Furniture Source
Google “minimalist bedroom” and expect to find photos of light-colored wooden beds in most (if not all) search results, pretty much like this bed frame from Furniture Source—simple, straightforward, and gives the room a light and airy feel. It’s not just for aesthetics though, it has some pretty neat features, too, like the slatted bed base that adjusts to the body weight of the sleeper, storage boxes underneath that are easy to roll in and out, and side panels that can be adjusted to the bed’s thickness. How’s that for form and function?
Classic Candle Warmer V2.0 (P4,250) from Lit Lifestyle PH
Love scented candles but hate the smell of smoke? You might want to check out this candle warmer from Lit Lifestyle PH. Instead of burning the wick, the bulb heats up the wax, which causes the candle to emit the scent even without the flame. And because there’s no smoke, the fragrance is cleaner and stronger. Best of all, it has an auto-shutdown timer to conserve power, ensure safety, and save candle life.
Oga Foldable Table (P9,400) from By the Form
This multi-purpose foldable table from By the Form ticks all the boxes: it’s simple (goes with anything in the room), stylish (has a modern minimalist aesthetic) and a total space-saver (it folds flat when not in use). It’s great as an instant desk for finishing some paperwork or as a table for your snacks while binge-watching your favorite series.
GATSBY Storage Basket (P3,950) from MakeRoom
Use it as a catch-all for unclassifiable items in your room, a rack for your current and favorite reads, or storage for linens and throws, this storage basket from MakeRoom can be used for practically anything—while matching your room’s clean, crisp vibe to boot!
Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set (P4,950) from Linen & Home
Out with the colored sheets with crazy patterns and in with the crisp white sheets and pillowcases! This bamboo sheet set from Linen & Home may be minimal in style, but they provide maximum comfort--think soft organic bedding made of 300-thread count bamboo sheets, which is practically 800-thread count in cotton material. It’s also hypoallergenic and will have you feeling cool as you sleep.
Sensor Light with Magnet (P1,450) from MUJI
There's a reason this sensor light from MUJI is a best-seller. It can be placed anywhere in the room (in the closet, book shelves, by the entryway, under the bed—you name it!) and will light up for about 10 seconds once movement is detected in the dark. It also has a magnet and is designed with a hole for easy installation!

Lexon Oslo Time Digital Clock (P2,990) from Lexon Design
This Scandinavian-style digital alarm clock from Lexon Design is aesthetically pleasing not only to the eyes, but to the ears, too! It comes with six natural sounds you can choose as your alarm to gently wake you up in the morning, a touch control for snoozing, and a display dimmer to match the mood of the room. Best of all, its Scandi-inspired design can go with the rest of your stuff.
