Have you been looking for master bedroom designs? Do you find yourself being drawn to the simple luxury of hotel rooms? Thankfully, you can achieve a similar look in your master bedroom, regardless of its size. A few simple steps can make a significant difference and turn your master bedroom into a place that is truly restful.
You can achieve this first step without spending any of your hard-earned money. Simply set aside an afternoon to clean and declutter. Remove anything that you deem unnecessary and don’t be afraid to be ruthless. It is common for the master bedroom to become a dumping ground for clothes, books and household items. But this clutter can impede on your ability to truly relax at the end of the day.
Ideally, a bedroom should be painted in subdued tones since they tend to promote a state of relaxation. Therefore, resist the urge to paint all four walls in your favorite color, lime green. Instead, choose to incorporate that color in a few, carefully selected decorative accents and paint the walls a soft gray, for example. This will form the foundation for your restful retreat.
Next, fill the space with soft textiles and bed linens. Place an accent rug under the bed to provide a soft place to step and a comforter or duvet to snuggle under. Professional bedroom designs typically opt for 3 or more pillows. So choose a comfortable, supportive pillow for regular use and one to provide a decorative foundation behind it. Not only does this provide additional layers of luxury, it can serve a practical purpose for those who like to sleep with more than one pillow.
Lighting is another key element in beautiful bedroom designs. Your space should be outfitted with a ceiling fixture, possibly a chandelier or fan, and task lighting in the form of table lamps or hanging pendants. If the space is large enough you may also need additional recessed lighting. An ingenious way to incorporate task lighting without taking up valuable night table space is to hang pendants above. You can also invest in fixtures that conveniently clip onto the headboard to provide additional lighting. When installing lighting it may be beneficial to consult a home contractor or electrician to determine the best avenue to take and to ensure that the job is done right.
