Your master bedroom should be a place to relax and unwind. It’s one of the few rooms in a house that can be considered a space to get away. Whether you’re building a brand new house or just revamping your current one, these tips and tricks are sure to make you feel right at home in your master.
1. Use cool-toned colors.
One of the keys to creating a tranquil and calm space, is using a neutral and serene color palette. Colors such as grey, blue, green, white, etc. will be pleasing to the eye and create immediate stress relief to your senses. This example shows a deep heather grey used on the walls, while the carpet and ceiling remain a stark white. The clean lines and cool-toned colors create a harmonious and continuous design.
While grey was used in the example above, many other color combinations can create the same feeling for your master bedroom. Pale blue, natural green or light purple are a few other popular color choices and would all match well with clean white as an accent. The key is to keep the designs simple and the lines clean, which brings us to our next tip.
2. Keep everything simple and clean.
From the furniture and décor to the small details such as door handles and hardware: keep them simple. By doing this, you are creating a room that is stylish, but maintains just enough detail to keep it from being uninteresting. Choosing fixtures that match and keeping lines clean instantly creates a bedroom that is soothing and inviting.
Now, when we say the word “simple,” we don’t mean boring and mundane. In fact, it can mean quite the opposite. Simple just means that clutter is eliminated from the space and that the eye isn’t stuck on one specific part of the room. By designing the bedroom to be coordinated, it automatically becomes more comfortable and will give you the relaxing master that you’re wanting.
3. Give it some character.
It doesn’t matter how large or small your space is, just give it a little touch of personality. It’s easy to have a room with character while maintaining serenity. This can mean adding hardwood floors rather than carpet, adding a unique light fixture or even adding a tray ceiling like the example shown below. The master bedroom pictured would be beautiful regardless, but the vaulted tray ceiling really gives it a special and memorable touch. The added headspace above not only makes the room appear larger, but it accentuates the cool-toned colors and simple furnishings the homeowners chose.
