The master bedroom tends to come last on our lists of things to do when we buy a new house.
Maybe it’s not a case of urgency, or you don’t think it matters, as very few people will get to appreciate it. Whatever the reason may be, you shouldn’t disregard it.
The master bedroom is the room in your house where you dedicate time to unwinding and relaxing. It should provide an atmosphere that encourages such feelings.
Plus, it allows you to go for more luxurious notes than you might usually choose. Everything in the name of creating a place to help you rest, right?
So, let’s take a look at the steps between you and a beautiful bedroom worthy of being called a ‘master.’ We also included some of our favorite designer tips.
Needless to say, the bed is the foundation of any good bedroom. It is also the first element you want to focus on. However, take some time to consider other possible uses of your bedroom – will you put on makeup there?
Will you store your clothes in your bedroom closet?
When it comes to beds and mattresses, this is the thing to spend a little extra on. After all, every pastel palette out there will be worth nothing if your bed is giving you a backache.
Play around with different mattress technologies until you find something that works for you.
Every other piece of furniture is technically an addition, but some still count as the foundation. When choosing, go for pieces of furniture with a lot of storage space, as you don’t want to be cluttering open spaces.
You will most likely be using a closet in your bedroom. Besides, if you take medication or wear glasses, a bedside table is another essential item for the area.
You may also need a shelf for books or a toiletry table if you plan to do more activities in this room.
Go for a design and color scheme you like, and then add details onto that basis. One thing to consider is that your bed frame should match the other pieces of furniture that find their way into your room.
Also, don’t forget that you should leave some space between different items. Doing so makes the chamber it’s in more comfortable to navigate.
This category is something between the essentials and the details. Once the necessary furniture is in place, there are a few things for you to consider.
First, consider how much light goes in through your window.
Once you determine whether you will need more or less of it, think about lighting and drapes. Don’t go for blinds if possible, as curtains soften the structure of the walls. The light needs to be adjustable and plentiful. Try to place it around the bedroom.
Then, check if you will need extra storage spaces.
If you can’t seem to fit everything in your closet, you should look into alternatives. Remember the ‘hidden’ storage under your bed, as well as in designer boxes available.
You could also get a trunk to put in front of your bed for things you don’t use daily.
You could add a mirror as well.
Depending on your space, you could go for one on the doors of your closet, or for a full-length mirror. It adds design points, as well as open up the room a bit thanks to the reflection.
If you’re playing with a lot of open space, going for an ottoman, or a sitting area is an excellent idea. It adds some luxury in your room while keeping up the functionality.
Now you have your bedroom set up, and that is it, right? Not completely. It is the details that separate a lush master bedroom from a simple sleeping area.
Now it’s your time to play with design ideas and add beautiful accessories to emphasize the qualities of the space. At this point, you can let your imagination take the lead, but here are some of the more popular trends lately.
A headboard might be useful if you enjoy your bedtime reading. It also helps break down the monochronic pattern if you go for one palette in the entire room.
Go for a contrasting color or add some pillows for coziness. If you’re a DIY type of person, this could even be your next project.
Play with symmetry. On the one hand, equality in a bedroom adds to a feeling of relaxation and makes the place seem well put together.
On the other hand, putting details together in odd numbers comes with a sense of satisfaction, too. You could mix up the two styles.
Mix up the wall texture. Instead of choosing loud colors that might impair your sleeping, go for different wall textures.
Walls in gentle colors can be far from boring with a little creativity. Alternatively, you could choose the most visible surface and have some fun with bold wallpaper.
Once you put it all together, take a step back, and enjoy what you created. You will no longer wonder if the trouble was worth it.
A good master bedroom is a place where you can feel your best, leaving the daily worries and stresses behind. So, jump onto your king-sized bed and enjoy your night surrounded by beauty.
