The place you lay your head at night—the place designed to give you rest and relaxation—is the master bedroom. Sadly, it’s often last on the list when it comes to renovating. Now’s the time to change that. Let’s discuss how to create a luxurious master bedroom so that you can walk into your room knowing you’ll soon forget the stresses of the day and fall into a much-needed slumber.
Add Dreamy Bedding
An old quilt and a blanket won’t do. Your bed needs bedding that begs you to sleep in every morning. Here’s what to look for in bedding:
People have plenty of opinions on pillows. Some like very firm pillows, while others find that soft feather pillows suit them best. Either way, pillows have a big effect on how you rest. Invest in what helps you sleep. Your pillow should be your favorite place to lay your head.
Sore back every morning? Before you blame old age, consider a better mattress. Just as with pillows, some people prefer firm mattress and others prefer soft. A great combination for the best of both worlds is a firm mattress with a soft pillow top. For optimal luxury, consider an added layer with a down-filled mattress topper to place on your mattress before adding the sheets. Pure splendor.
Lastly, make yourself cozy with a fluffy down comforter. It’s the perfect bed covering because it feels cool in the summer and wonderfully warm in the colder months. It looks beautiful in white and goes with any décor, or you can use a duvet cover and change the look as often as you like. The goal is to make your bed the center of attention and your favorite place to sleep.
Pay Attention to What’s Underfoot
When you get out of bed in the morning, the first thing you feel is the floor. Make it a welcome greeting. If worn-out, dingy carpet; cold wood; or scratched-up vinyl tile covers your floors, you have an array of choices. Consider what’s important to you along with your lifestyle, and then choose a flooring type or rug that adds warmth and beauty to your master bedroom.
Add Some Rich Color
Paint the walls a color that makes you feel relaxed. Colors have that ability. For example, a bright red feels different than a soft gray. Bring some paint samples home and look at them in different lighting throughout the day. Then, take a weekend to add a soft, comforting color to your master bedroom.
Block the Lights
Cover your windows with window coverings that complement your décor and that shield as much light as possible. When Saturday morning rolls around and you finally get to sleep in, the last thing you need is the sunshine peeking through your windows. You need darkness to rest well.
