Master Bedroom Decor
Master bedroom is your personal sanctuary and the decor
of this room speaks of your style, comfort and personality. It is
not simply a room where you go to sleep at the end of every day.
In fact bedroom is a room where your imagination and ideas can take
wings. But the most common problem most of us faces is with so limited
furnishings and a big bed occupying most of the space, how to make
this room look grand and elegant. If this is your dilemma then this
section on master bedroom decor will help you find new innovative
ways to spruce up your decorations. Letís take a step-by-step approach
and remodel the master bedroom.
Master Bedroom Colors
Just like any other room, master bedroom wall colors are very important in giving the right feel to the room. Generally the master bedroom is larger as compared to the other bedrooms in the house. So either one can select colors to make the bedroom look spacious or give it a cozy look. Our suggestion is to have a blend of both. Select one wall as the accent wall and paint it in a different color and the rest of the walls in another color. You can get innovative ideas for bedroom wall colors in our wall color section. Go for orange, red, pink and warm yellows for rooms that have little or no direct sunlight. If the master bedroom is sunny then blues and greens will tend to keep the room cool.
Master Bedroom Lighting
Master bedroom lighting should be dim and soft to give a relaxed and comfortable
look. If you are going for ceiling lights in the master bedroom
then simply put lower voltage bulbs. Today there are thousands of
fixtures to give a chic look to your room. Nightstand lights
on each side of the bed makes for comfortable bedtime reading, so
select adequate voltage bulbs only. If the master bedroom has a
dressing table then proper lighting is required there as well. Place
the table in a corner where there is proper light. Pushing it in
the darkest corner will only increase your power consumption. And
when we are talking about bedrooms we definitely canít miss out
on the dimmers. So set the right mood for the right days with mood
lighting in your bedroom.
Master Bedroom Furniture
Though the master bedroom doesnít have too much of furniture, proper arrangement
of them can give a completely transformed look. The bed is one of
the biggest furniture
of the room and therefore always remains the center of attraction.
So if you have an old set, then simply replacing it with a new set
can do wonders for your master bedroom decorations. Go for matching
night stands that give a wider look to your bed. While selecting
the nightstands see that it has adequate storage place for your
books, magazines, reading glasses and other nick nacks. A wicker
chest is also a great way to store your stuff that otherwise clutter
the room and give it a messy look. If there is space one can even
indulge in a small reading corner with a beanbag or a comfy chair.
Mirrors are not only restricted to your dressing table, they are also very useful
in making your master bedroom decor look larger. This is especially
required if there are lot of furniture in the room. Mirrors give
an illusion that enlarges the room, so place large mirrors opposite
to your bed or on your dresser and give your room a different look.
Windows play an important role in giving a personality to your master bedroom.
With letting fresh air and light in the room, windows also give
various decorating options. So pull down those tired looking old
curtains and go for some curtains
matching to the color of your master bedroom. Once the curtain is
hung tie it back with an unusual tieback like a painted seashell
or a doorknob. A vase of flowers on the windowsill also adds to
the bedroom decorations.
Bedrooms never look complete with some cozy decorative cushions complementing it. Nowadays they are easily available in all shapes and sizes to blend easily with your bedroom textures and patterns. Get different types of pillow covers to give a fresh look to your bedroom each week.
Plants and Flowers
Plants and flowers are not just for your living room. In fact they are the easiest way to freshen up your master bedroom. Night tables and dressers are great spots for potted plants. If you canít find fresh flowers everyday then go for the artificial ones and put them in vases in different parts of the room.
