Many people shy away from interior decorating, thinking you need a degree to create the perfect balance in small spaces. Of course, it helps if you have a natural flair for design, but don’t let it stop you if you don’t.
With a world of beautiful ideas at your fingertips, take the first step, and get creative. We’ll guide you through a few necessary steps to add the perfect finishing touches that can re-create your bedroom from drab to fab in the wink of an eye.
First Things First: Get Comfortable
Before you attempt to grab a paintbrush, have you invested in a good quality mattress yet? No matter how pretty your room is, if you’re not feeling fully rested in the mornings, no amount of visual appeal is going to boost your day.
The right bed is vital for your overall health as it gives better spinal support where needed and prevents backaches and stiff joints. If you’re unsure how to choose a good quality one, look at this list of firm mattresses.
Your bed is the centerpiece of your master bedroom and should not only look great but also be useful for you. Waking up fully rested without any aches or pains is half the battle won.
Get A Headboard That Looks And Feels Fabulous
The perfect way to give your master bedroom a personality of its own is with a headboard that sets the tone. It should not only look great but be soft and comfortable.
Upholstered headboards look fantastic and are the perfect way to complete the picture and add to your room’s personality. If you’re adventurous, you can make one using one of the thousands of DIY plans freely available on the internet. Who knows, maybe you will find a new passion while you’re at it.
Use Lights As Features
Various types and sizes of lights and light-fittings can set the perfect mood in a master bedroom. It doesn’t only look pretty; the ambiance it sets is healthy for you too.
The best part is that nothing has to be precisely the same. You can use lights in beautiful ways to put the focus on a specific item or section in your room.
Exposed lights are all the rage at the moment, and you can easily make long strands of them that you can wrap around the walls or trusses.
Another great feature is to hang strands of smaller lights on the wall behind your bed. It looks incredible and soft when you turn the main one off while still providing enough brightness for your bedtime reading.
When In Doubt: Paint
Painting a wall or two will forever be the fastest, most affordable, and easiest way of transforming any interior. The secret is to keep your room’s primary focus on your bed, so the one behind it is the perfect choice to tint a different color.
Be bold with the color to make a statement, especially if your linen is natural and light. If your linen is bold and bright, tone it down on the paint to balance the complete picture.
If you’re very adventurous, you can always consider asking one of your artsy friends to paint a mural in your room. It’s the perfect way to compliment a specific theme. Imagine a Tuscan style bedroom with a vintage wall-painting to complete it. The sky’s the limit with a bit of imagination and a fearless approach.
Nothing Beats Egyptian Cotton
Last, but surely not the least: Invest in good quality cotton linen. The thread count is as important as your mattress.
The finishing touch to the perfect master bedroom is a bed that’s not only healthy to sleep on, but that invites you to slip into the covers every time you walk past it. Keep it natural and light.
You can use different shades of the same color, but the secret to a tranquil suite is your bedding’s simplicity.
If you enjoy patterns, stick to a single stripe in at most two colors, and balance it with simple sheets and pillowcases.
The Final Touch
The master bedroom is your escape from a busy world. Try to keep your design as light and neutral as possible. You can use bold colors but in a simplistic manner.
Using features such as lights or plants is an excellent way of adding a feeling of tranquility and warmth without overpowering your senses. The secret to a master bedroom is to create a space where you can switch off, relax, and regain your energy for a beautiful new day.
