Master Bedroom Remodeling Ideas
Your master bedroom is an oasis, a private space to escape, recharge and feel most at home.
No matter how big or small, it’s important that your master bedroom feels authentic to your own personal tastes and style. If you are looking to refresh your master bedroom, we have several ideas to help you create the bedroom of your dreams.
Where to Begin
Start by thinking about what you want most out of your space. For example, do you want it to feel clean, crisp and simple? If so, white bedroom furniture might be the choice for you. Or, are you going for more of a dark, cozy vibe? If this is the case, perhaps some blackout curtains or black bedroom furniture will do the trick.
Whether your tastes run more towards modern or traditional, it’s crucial to first decide exactly what features you want to change and then start planning your budget accordingly.
There are a few things to consider when choosing a new master bedroom set. To start, always consider your space limitations. Take into account how many windows are in the master bedroom and whether the furniture you need (or want) will block the natural light or encroach on the space in some way.
Next, consider storage. If you are fortunate enough to have a bedroom with a lot of closet space, you’ll likely be able to pare down on the furniture and skip a dresser for something more interesting, such as a comfy reading chair.
Should you decide to select one or two new pieces of furniture to blend with what you already have, then it’s time to get creative. Check out an artisan furniture maker and design your own pieces, or try blending modern and vintage for a unique look that feels personal.
Lighting is often overlooked in the master bedroom – after all, you’re spending most of your time in this space with your eyes closed. But having the right light is more important than you may realize.
When taking measurements of the room, keep lighting in mind, taking into account any windows or skylights that might allow natural light to filter in. You’ll also want to portion out some of your surface area if you would like to include a table lamp.
Try not to overdo it with the lights, but on the other hand, incorporate enough so you do not bump into everything trying to find your way to bed each night.
The Right Color
Finding the right color for your master bedroom can be daunting. And while white or black bedrooms are classic, they can sometimes be a little impersonal if you aren’t sure how to use textures and patterns.
If you want to incorporate color, experts say blues are relaxing for sleep as the color triggers your brain to feel calm. And brighter colors – think hot pinks, yellows and greens – are great if you need a pop of energy when you wake up in the morning. The easiest solution is to go with some neutrals. Pick one to four colors and shades and start from there to design the perfect bedroom for your design style.
Don’t Forget the Bedding!
Bedding is one of the most important aspects of your bedroom design. Not only is it nice to look at and has the power to bring the room together, it’s also the part that matters most for your comfort and rest.
Using good bedding can make all the difference between a sleepless night and starting your day off well-rested and energized.
