Your master bedroom is your escape from the world. It’s where you go to relax, read, watch TV, and close the door to the noise in your home or life. It’s the one place in a house that can make or break whether you buy it or not. This is a room that matters to you, and you want it to look and feel a certain way. You want it to feel relaxing and inviting. You want to keep it fresh and original that aligns with your personality. But, how do you accomplish this? Well, that’s why we are here. We are going to share some tips to paint and decorate your master bedroom we think will make it great.
Choosing the Right Paint
According to HGTV, “Today's master bedroom suites are typically larger than the other bedrooms in your home, so you have many options, and you can combine and layer colors to create a unique look.” This means you will have more than enough options to choose from when it comes to paint. When thinking about paint for this room, think about the mood you want to create. Green, for example, is a popular color for bedrooms because it is warm and cool. And, there are a wide range of tints. But, if you want to set a darker tone, you can go black. If you want something inspiring, you can choose yellow. Or, you could choose different layers and patterns of colors to get a mix of moods for different parts of the bedroom.
Mattresses can last 5 - 20 years depending on the type you choose and how much use it gets. Hey, keep your thoughts clean over there. We are talking about how much sleeping you do on the mattress. This is just one of several pieces of furniture you will have in your special room. Therefore, you want to ensure it is comfortable and durable. This is where you may choose to spend a little more money to ensure you get the quality and durability you deserve. One more note on bedrooms. We know some people cannot fall asleep without the TV on. But, there is a good reason to not put a TV in the bedroom. The chief reason is that watching TV in bed makes it hard to get high quality sleep.
When planning out your master bedroom, consider going for a theme. As you see in the image at the start of this post, that room is more rustic and woodsy. It gives a more natural feel. Perhaps you want a room that makes you feel like you are on a beautiful island or a special place you love. The sky's the limit, so get creative.
Depending on the size of your room, you may choose to have different parts within the room itself. You may have a sitting area for reading and a different area for dressing and undressing. You may choose to have an ottoman or chest at the foot of the bed for storage and sitting. Consider how you want to break up your space and create portions. Then you can make each portion truly its own with different paints and accessories to help one part feel different than the other. It will be like having a mini apartment in the house.
Bring the Outdoors In
This is great for any bedroom, especially smaller bedrooms. If you have access to the outside through a window, frame the window so you can see the view. Use drapery panels and window treatments that make the view look that much better. Plus, do not let the drapes touch the floor. This gives your eyes a place to stop. You want your eyes to make a connection from the inside to the outside with nothing to get in the way.
Add real or painted horizontal wood panels to make the room feel bigger
Hang strategically placed art to make the space feel expansive
Take full advantage of high ceilings and choose a tall bed to anchor the room
Emphasize one or two items with bold colors to take your attention off any undesirable features in the room. (Great when you want to ignore your spouse after a fight!)
Use patterns to give the room a different flow
