Unlock the potential of your master bedroom in five surprisingly simple steps
Daily life is stressful, there’s no getting around that. Between work, travel, social engagements, family and finances, there’s plenty of things to worry about.
Your master bedroom should be your escape from all these stresses. Your bedroom is so much more than the place you sleep; it’s your relaxation haven, and your safe place. Which is why it’s important that your master bedroom is a room you enjoy spending time in.
If you feel like your master bedroom could do with a style overhaul, take comfort in the knowledge that it can be done, and it’s much simpler than you might think.
Your bed is the star of your master bedroom, so give it the love it deserves. Bedding sets the atmosphere for your entire bedroom, and is often the thing your eyes are drawn to first as you enter the room.
Going for a change of colour or pattern is the easiest way to freshen up your bedroom. Go for something that gives off the vibes you want from your bedroom, whether cool and calm, bright and colourful or dark and romantic.
Once you’ve changed your bedding, complement it with some eye-catching side tables. Bedside tables aren’t just there to be practical – they’re pieces of furniture in their own right and deserve some love too!
With bedside tables, the only limit is your imagination. If your bedding is colourful or shows off a jazzy pattern, pick out a colour in that pattern and complement it by choosing tables in the same shade. If you want a classier or cleaner look, go for Victorian style dark wood side tables or a simple white design.
Every bedroom should have a mirror, and not just for functional reasons. A mirror might be a simple piece of furniture, but it holds a lot of power. Mirrors have the potential to create the illusion of space and, making your room look bigger. They also reflect natural light, so investing in a long mirror can make your master bedroom appear larger and lighter.
Opt for a full-length mirror in a striking frame which really stands out against your bedroom wall. Again, use your bedspread as inspiration for your choice of colours and patterns. This will help bring your whole bedroom together.
Lighting is everything when it comes to choosing décor. You can include all the attractive furniture you like, but if you don’t choose the right lighting then your bedroom is unlikely to give off the desired effect.
Pendant lighting is a great option because it’s dramatic and homey at the same time, and helps create a light that’s not harsh but isn’t dull either. Pendant lights come in all shapes and sizes, so you’re bound to find one that complements the rest of your bedroom perfectly.
If you’re serious about beautifying your master bedroom, you need to add style from ceiling to floor! Every bedroom needs a rug. Again, use your bedding as inspiration. Choose a rug in a similar colour or, if you’re feeling brave, you can deliberately contrast your bedding with a jarring pattern.
Remember to scale your rug to the size of your bedroom. If you have a lot of floorspace, feel free to go for a nice, big rug. If, however, you’re short of space, a narrow runner can boost the look of your master bedroom without overwhelming it.
