The master bedroom serves as more than the largest bedroom in the house where you sleep. Nope, the master bedroom is where you should go to relax, be comfortable, and most importantly sleep soundly. You can design your master bedroom any way you want; so why wouldn’t you set it up to fully suit your needs and be as comfortable as possible?
Design With Comfort In Mind
If you are the kind of person who likes to read in the bedroom, you need to design it accordingly. There should be a place for keeping books. You must have padded headboards for ensuring correct posture. The lighting must also be designed carefully.
The lights should not be too harsh or too muted. You can use colors like ivory, amber, green, slate blue and other soft and soothing colors that reflect light without making it too glaring. You can place soft luxurious pillows around a chaise lounge for total comfort. A stylish floor lamp completes the look.
Being able to settle down after a long day is imperative to our peace of mind, and decorating your master bedroom the right way can help immensely. Start with the right color; darker shades, like chocolate chip or navy or forest green, have been shown to help with sleep. Next you need to place enough amenities in the room to suit your needs. I have seen some great nooks for writing in a journal, or a bed and breakfast style coffee maker and refrigerator, or even a plasma TV on the wall. It really depends on your personality and needs; you can do almost anything to your master bedroom that you want!
If you want your bedroom to portray passion, you should use colors like bright red, creamy peach, gold and other daring colors. Use silky and velvety textures for curtains and bed covers. Using aromatic candles, tropical plants and adequately placed mirrors can also heighten the sense of passion.
Use Your Imagination
You should use your imagination when designing your bedroom. It is your personal space and you can go all out in decorating it. For optimal comfort, you should not place your bed against the outer wall. Outer walls are close to elements of nature like cold, wet and heat. Try and place it against an inner wall. If you must use the outer wall, ensure that you place something between the wall and the bed, for example drapes, a tapestry or a bookshelf. You don’t have to buy a complete bedroom furniture set; you can mix and match pieces to create the look you want. By using mirrors creatively, you can create an illusion of space in your master bedroom.
When you are planning out the design of your master bedroom, you should take into account your lifestyle and personality. We’ve all seen decorating magazines with fantastic-looking bedrooms, but there’s no sense in copying a look if it doesn’t match your personality.
