The best master bedrooms are a combination of style, functionality, and a touch of glamour – not to mention all the comforts we’ve come to expect from a comfortable yet elegant bedroom.
The most important room in your home is (arguably) the master bedroom, and we believe this room should not only be your sanctuary, it should be the most luxurious room in your home. Unfortunately, the master bedroom often consists of mismatched décor, dirty laundry, and awkward furniture layout.
It’s vital to getting a healthy night’s sleep that your bedroom is a soothing, relaxing, comfortable, and practical space – it should also reflect your own unique personal style.
Fortunately, all the above can be achieved with simple styling tricks, like painting the walls with a softer colour, investing in new bed linen, or even just adding some comfy cushions and a soft throw blanket.
Getting a good night’s sleep is imperative to a healthy body and mind; sleeping not only rejuvenates you for the coming day, it also helps rid the body of dangerous toxins. The way your bedroom is designed and presented can greatly contribute to how well you sleep. In this post we’ll offer some design tips on how to achieve the perfect master bedroom.
Your Master Bedroom – Your Choice!
There’s no right or wrong style to choose – everything depends on the aesthetic you want to create in your own master bedroom. Do you prefer bright and airy, or a warm and moody vibe? Perhaps you’d like an oriental design with heavy timbers, or a country-inspired look with a vintage metal bedframe. We’re all different and therefore have different ideas of what a sophisticated bedroom should look like; for some people it’s hotel luxe design style with pops of metallic in a darker palette and for others it’s the natural features of a coastal interior style.
Creating symmetry and balance in the master bedroom is possibly one of the easiest ways of designing a relaxing environment. Do this by making the bed the centrepiece of your room, then adding other furniture. Create symmetry by adding symmetrical nightstands and other pairs of objects. The furniture should balance out the room, so not too big and not too small – it needs to add flow to the room. Add different textures to the room with rugs, throws, and pillows. Some designers choose wooden features, scented candles, and natural materials to create a cosy interior design feel.
Consider a Canopy Bedframe
A canopy bed is similar to a four-poster bed and is typically covered with a large fabric sheet to form a canopy. Four elongated posts hold up the canopy, one at each corner, with the posts connected at the top by rods or other material. These bedframes look amazing in rooms with high ceilings and give the bedroom a look a grandeur. Canopy bedframe types include metal and wooden, and you can also get the less-favoured half-canopy bed which is more suited to a small room. Ties on the bed posts allow the canopy to be held back, thus giving easy access to the bed.
With its flowing drapes, a canopy bed will certainly take your master bedroom to the next level. The linen coverings can be changed to customise your bed as your theme changes or your taste evolves. In addition, you can block out the light, sleep in on lazy Sunday mornings, or muffle sounds, by using thicker fabric drapes. And, with some considered positioning, you can keep your bed cooler in the hotter months.
Stylish Wall Art
Don’t forget your bedroom when it comes to wall art. The right piece/s can make all the difference to the ambience of your master bedroom. Beautiful artwork in your bedroom must be enhancing to the atmosphere, soothing, and something you love waking up to. Your bedroom artwork should tie in themes, colours, textures, and fill up bare walls. Ensure the piece/s you choose are not too vivid or distracting. Black and white photographs in a master bedroom work well and look very elegant.
Pillows, And More Pillows
Your master bedroom must be designed to create a comfortable place to sleep, and nothing says comfort more than pillows. Throw pillows in your bedroom can tie a colour scheme together, at the same time adding visual interest. And they don’t cost a lot of money. If you’re unsure how to add pillows we suggest choosing one patterned pillow and basing the rest of your pillow choices by pulling colours from the patterned pillow. Here are some tips on how to choose decorative throw pillows for your master bedroom –
- No more than five pillows
- Create a symmetrical arrangement
- Put the largest pillows on the outer corners
- Choose one cohesive colour scheme
- No more than 1 or 2 patterns
- Buy new pillow covers if you wish to refresh your décor.
Plenty Of Storage
Regardless how plush your bedroom may be, you still need to deal with clothes and clutter. The right bedroom storage options will help keep this room uncluttered and looking great. Make sure your wardrobe has plenty of storage room, and while Feng Shui may not approve of this idea, you can access a lot of storage room underneath your bed by installing a drawer with casters then dividing the drawer into different compartments. Whichever way you take care of your storage requirements, we know your master bedroom will look amazing when all your knick-knacks are out of sight.
Choose Soft, Neutral Colours
While a colourful home is always interesting, the colour palette of your bedroom should evoke peace and tranquillity. Most people choose a soft pastel or neutral colour for the bedroom walls; however, whatever colour you decide to go with, keep in mind that designers typically avoid bright reds (because they’re associated with feelings of anger and/or excitement), orange (because it evokes a sense of vitality and freshness) and lime green (because it’s associated with increased energy). Stay away from trendy palettes because you need a colour you’ll love forever – not for just a year or so.
Add An Area Rug
If you don’t have carpet on your bedroom floor, you need something soft and plush to put your feet on when getting out of bed. An area rug framed around the bed will make your bedroom look amazing and highlight the centre of your room, plus it will give your room warmth, texture, and colour.
Use Lighting To Set the Mood
Whether you add a pair of wall sconces, a statement pendant lamp, or simple yet practical table lamps on the bedside tables, it’s important that your bedroom has good lighting. Fluorescent lighting is out! Chandeliers look fantastic in bedrooms, but you don’t need to break the budget for bedroom lighting. Wall sconces are extremely popular in master bedrooms at the moment; they provide an ideal, muted light source and help make the bedroom appear cosy and inviting. Add dimmers to your bedroom lighting so you can control the brightness.
Ambient lighting is lighting that helps you relax, while task-related lighting is usually in the ceiling of the bedroom – we suggest having both in your master bedroom.
