Gothic Bedroom Design Ideas #1: Dark Bedroom Ideas
This contemporary goth bedroom features starkly contrasting black and white without a lot of over-the-top embellishments. It brings the gothic look home with the chandelier hanging over the bed, but keeps things subtle without relying on a lot of scrollwork or other minute details to imply the goth bedroom style.
Gothic Bedroom Design Ideas #2: Modern Gothic Interior Design
While the bed itself isn’t very gothic and keeps things quite minimal, it’s offset by a massive scrollwork frame that is decidedly gothic in nature. This goth bedroom also utilizes black and white with some splashes of color in the small but noticeable flower arrangements on the end tables.
Gothic Bedroom Design Ideas #3: Cozy Dungeon
Although the bed and its dressings are very modern in this goth bedroom, everything else is gothic. The walls are made of castle rock and the goth bedroom décor is kept low, including a painting that is leaning against the wall in a very traditional medieval style. Detailed Gothic scrollwork on the frame brings it all home.

Gothic Bedroom Design Ideas #5: Modern and Comfortable
Just because a room is gothic, that doesn’t mean it has to be uncomfortable, stuffy, or hard to enjoy. This modern bedroom uses black and white contrasts and an old-fashioned wallpaper along with a scroll frame for the bed to pull the whole gothic look together.
Gothic Bedroom Design Ideas #6: Gothic Canopy
This extremely tall covered bed with drapes is incredibly gothic. If you don’t have the benefit of vaulted ceilings like the bedroom in this photo, you can consider a more traditional canopy bed with gothic-style drapes around it to get the feeling of this style without the massive cover.

It creates a splash of interest by adding soft floral lights on one end table to offset the large window on the other side of the goth bedroom.
