You spend about a third of your life in bed, so why WOULDN’T you want to make your main bedroom the best possible version of itself it can be?
1. Start By Picking Out Your Master Bedroom Linen
This might sound strange, but by deciding on a colour palette for your bed linen first, you are narrowing down the palette your love and setting the tone for the rest of your master suite. From there, play around with different contrasting furniture options and design ideas using a mood board – remember, Pinterest and Instagram are your friends! Once you’ve decided on the overall look of your room, you can start thinking about fixtures and fittings to complement.
2. Focus On Master Bedroom Comfort
You want your bedroom to be as comfortable as possible – after all, you’re going to be spending a LOT of time in there. Your bed is a great place to start. Choosing a comfortable bed, and dressing it appropriately, will make a world of difference. If you have a Queen-size bed, put a King Doona on it. And if it’s a King, opt for a Super King. It just ends up looking heaps better.
3. Be Bold In The Bedroom With Colour
Bedrooms are super personal spaces, and the one spot in your house visitors aren’t likely to wander into. So why not get creative? If in the rest of the house you have been light, bright and airy, in the master you might be able to experiment with colours on the walls. Deep blues and deep greens, which are really popular at the moment, will absorb a bit of the light and make the room feel a little bit more cozy, relaxing and romantic.
4. Think About The Placement Of Your Bedroom Furniture
The placement of the furniture in your Master is really important – get it wrong, and your bedroom could feel cluttered and chaotic. Ideally, you should think about positioning your bed opposite a door – not only does it look better, but it’s also great feng shui! Bedside tables on either side of your bed create symmetry, and balance out the space. Opt for enclosed storage – a walk in wardrobe that you can just shut off and hide the mess and clutter has a calming effect.
5. Light For The Mood In The Master Suite
Lighting is another element that can add to the mood of a master suite, so decide carefully how you would like to light your space. Harsh overhead lights aren’t the best option in a bedroom – the last thing you want is to make your bedroom feel like a doctor’s waiting room. Harsh lighting can also wake you up, and chances are, if you’re in your bedroom, sleep’s the order of the day. Wall scones and lamps provide a great muted light source next to the bed, helping to make the room appear cozy and inviting. Its great to have varying level of light in the bedroom.
6. Make Your Main Bedroom Cozy
There’s nothing better than slipping into a crisply made bed at the end of a long day – there’s just something about the delicious coziness of a freshly changed bed, right? This is the feeling you want to try to create EVERY day in your master. Yep, we’re talking coziness – ramp it up big time in this space. Carpeting a bedroom, or including a large statement rug beneath the bed, is a great way to achieve this.
7. Plan Your Bedroom Storage
Walk-ins add a touch of luxury – especially if you opt for floor-to-ceiling customized storage, or a huge mirror – but they’re not for everyone. Figure out what is going to work best in your space, and what suits your needs. There’s no point trying to cram all your clothes into a too-small space if customized wardrobes across one wall would work better.
