Our bedrooms should be the favourite room in the house. With one-third of our life spent sleeping, there is every reason to create a beautiful design presence in the bedroom. We often put more thought into the areas of the home where our guests will reside, but instead, we should be taking the time to perfect the areas of the home that mean the most.
There are so many routes to take when designing the master bedroom. With this, people are granted the design creativity to do as they wish with their space for slumber. Whilst our bedrooms should be designed for comfort and rest, this does not mean to say that they can’t look just as chic and modern as possible.
We have compiled a list of renowned interior designers as to how they aim to elevate the design presence of the master bedroom, and you can easily follow these suggestions yourself:
Keep the tones neutral
This might be controversial with so many people boycotting the minimalist trend that has been circulating, but your bedroom should have neutral tones. If you wish to emulate a feeling of peace in the room for rest, the colour scheme of the room should not be loud and on your face. If pale white and beige are too bland for you, instead opt for earthy tones such as forest green and sandy brown if you wish to create a unique style presence in the room.
Extend the space where possible
The space of your bedroom might be limited, therefore you should create space where possible. There are so many design tricks that can be incorporated into the bedroom. Just to name a few, floor-to-ceiling curtains are a simple yet noticeable way to create an illusion of an elongated bedroom. Also, having large mirrors is a simple way that you can open up the space. If you have a wardrobe in the bedroom, consider having a mirrored wardrobe to open up the room as much as possible.
Value quality over quantity
If you would like to elevate the style presence of the bedroom, you need to invest in quality and aesthetic furniture. Furniture is expensive enough as it is, so the last thing we should be doing is spending lots of money on poorly made furniture which is noticeable and likely to break as time goes on. Quality furniture is noticed. You will feel and see the difference, so make sure you spend some money on a quality piece that will stay with you for a long time. Keep it simple and opt for furniture that is versatile and would work in different rooms should you decide to switch your furniture around.
Save on decoration
Decoration does not need to break the bank to create a stunning design. Home decor for the bedroom can be as simple as hanging a piece of art on the wall or having some contemporary vases dotted around the bedroom. Save money where you can, and find beautiful yet cost-effective decor pieces to complete the look of the bedroom. You might consider a large feature art piece to tower over the bed, or perhaps a simple sculpture that resonates with you.
Update your lighting
Lighting really can make or break a bedroom. Spotlighting and main lights are important for all rooms in the home, but ideally, the bedroom should have more ambient lighting. If you do not have a bespoke lamp or ambient spot lighting in your bedroom, you should consider implementing it. Just this simple addition can elevate the space and induce a feeling of serenity. Either opt for a bedside lamp that can be adjusted or even invest in hidden LEDs that are hidden around the room for a luxurious feeling.
Pack on the bed pillows
The bed is the focal point of the room. It is the reason why you spend so much time in that room specifically, so there is no reason why you should be spending your time making your bed look inviting and cosy. Adding decorative pillows is a simple yet effective way to elevate your bed up to hotel standards. Don’t go too overboard with this, but also get creative with the shape of pillows and also their styles. Layerism will be effective when you are mixing and matching your pillow sets.
Make it feel cosy
Aside from the decorative pillows, your bedroom as a whole should feel cosy. This can be done through the simple addition of soft textures in bed throws and also adding soft rugs into the room. You can never have too many blankets, so you should have thick throws and duvet cover sets displayed at the ready next to the bed.
Aeromatheory is proven to induce feelings of peace and relaxation depending on your scent of choice. Choose a scent for your bedroom to have. This might be lavender to support you in your sleep, or perhaps you will opt for a more luxurious hotel scent. Placing diffusers around the room will quickly fill the room with your desired smell, so don’t waste any time without a stunning scented bedroom.
Organise your closets
Just because you can’t see what is in your closet when it is closed, that does not mean to say it should not be organised and satisfying to look at. An organisation in the bedroom is key if you hope to keep it clutter-free. Organise the clothing that is in your closet in a way that makes it aesthetically pleasing to look at. This might be through colour coordination, or you might give each clothing category its section so pieces are easy to find. What you can’t immediately see in the bedroom is just as important as what you can see.
Faux flowers for finishing touches
Whilst real flowers can create a sense of freshness, faux flowers are just as effective at making the room feel uplifted. Consider having flowers that match the aesthetic of the bedroom, or perhaps make them a focal point to break the colour up in the room. Pampas grass is especially in right now, so perhaps oft for this if you are keeping the tones more neutral.
Overall, creating a beautiful design presence in the master bedroom is simpler than it sounds. You don’t have to be an interior design expert to create a bedroom space that invites serenity whilst also providing a contemporary feeling.
