Has it been a while since you updated your master bedroom? It’s easy to put this last on the list; however, a master bedroom should be your retreat from life. It is the place where you begin and end each day, it’s where you recharge and renew your spirit, and it can be a haven from the craziness of the day. Follow these tips to create a cozy and relaxing master bedroom that you will love:
First, Declutter – This is one of the easiest things to do because you can start immediately. Remove excess furniture, unnecessary electronics, books and magazines from the nightstand and any piles of clothing you may have. Ask yourself, “Does this room soothe or stress?” Remove anything that causes stress.
Make Your Bed and Bedding the Focus – Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom. Functionally, it’s essential in getting a good night’s sleep, but it should also be comfortable and visually appealing. Mattresses need to be replaced every eight years and pillows should be replaced every two to three years. Opt for sheets that feel comfortable to the touch.
Improve the View – Window treatments can add privacy by providing an extra barrier to the outside world as well as a beautiful design element to the space. Try adding curtain rods and panels the coordinate with your bedding to soften the look of your bedroom.
Find the Hue That Works for You – A new coat of paint can be the boost that your bedroom needs to feel like a sanctuary. Painting the walls can be cost effective and yet quite powerful. Whether you choose colors that pop or calmer colors to create serenity, painting can have a hug impact.
Set the Mood with Lighting – Balance is key. You don’t want harsh overhead lighting or a room that is too dark with dim bedside lighting. Try adding a chandelier that adds interest and elegance to the room. Create a more soothing mood with soft, balanced light throughout the room.
Add Some Visual Interest – Liven up the walls by hanging art. You don’t need to spend a fortune to decorate the room. Repurpose art from other rooms in your house or frame posters or prints from local arts and crafts stores. Enlarge pictures of your family or nature and frame for budget-friendly decorating.
