More often than not, the master bedroom is one of the last rooms to get any interior design attention. It’s mostly down to the fact that you spend most of your time and energy on the places that guests may see. Your kitchen, living spaces and bathrooms.
However, whether you have children, work all week, or stay at home, the master bedroom is the one place for you. So it needs to be put higher on the priority list when it comes to some decoration and styling.
Sleep is important for us to function so we need to be happy and comfortable. We all need that space where we can completely relax and unwind. With that in mind, here are some inspirational ideas to make the master bedroom your haven.
Create a feature wall for added designer looks
Decorating your bedroom doesn’t have to be boring. Creating feature walls where things are a little busier is a great way to make the room have a designer finish. Often people choose the wall that their bed leans against. Which instantly draws your eye to a focal point. You could use a different wall colour, creating an accent wall. Maybe adding a feature wallpaper to create a different look. You could look at sourcing some specific artwork that you find inspiring or relaxing, maybe some collage art or even some replica print of a famous painting. Or try your hand at something more quirky like a photo montage.
Create a clutter-free zone
It is impossible to relax in a room where there are things everywhere. The saying “tidy house tidy mind” is very appropriate in the bedroom. Decorating gives you the chance to declutter those drawers and shelving spaces.
The opportunity to throw out unwanted things that you no longer need. It’s very invigorating to minimise your living space, and the bedroom is a great place to start.
You may want to read up on the Marie Kondo solution; it could transform your whole home. Once you know exactly what needs to stay creating appropriate storage solutions will ensure you keep the room a clutter-free zone.
Consider your colour palette
For any bedroom decoration, your colour choices are important. While decorating and painting should be an extension of your personality, what you don’t want to do is create a room that feels too busy.
You have to think back to the purpose of the space, and the master bedroom needs to be somewhere you can relax and sleep in. A great tip is to consider some of the most popular shades to aid in relaxation.
Blue and yellow shades are often the most popular to aid in sleep. With studies proving those with rooms of that colour get over seven hours in total. However, colours like red and purple are deemed too stimulating, making it harder to relax and fall into a gentle sleep at night.
Of course, you shouldn’t dictate your decorating around science. So if red and purple happen to be your favourite colours then maybe considering pastel shades or lighter tones could be a great route to explore.
Remember a bedroom colour palette isn’t just about one colour, you could choose a few that complement each other. Making it much easier when choosing bed linen and soft furnishings to style your bedroom once decoration is completed.
Let’s hope these tips help you to create a secret haven in your bedroom.
