Master Bedrooms

For many people, master bedrooms are a deeply personal space. It is often the only room in the house set aside for rest and relaxation. Regardless, it can be difficult to keep it this way. Master bedrooms can become a dumping ground for household mess, particularly clothes. It isn’t unusual for the bed to double as a desk to complete work-related emails and assignments before bed. It may require a concerted effort to keep this from happening, especially if these habits have been ingrained over time. To start creating your personal oasis consider consulting an interior designer or decorator and incorporate the following decorating tips into your master bedroom:

1. Thread count is important. When choosing sheets, take note of their texture and thread count. Typically, a sheet set with a thread count of 400 is ideal. Even better if they are Egyptian cotton. Also consider how you sleep and if you tend to get warm at night or are instead cold. These factors will affect how well you sleep and the type of sheets you should purchase. If you are often cold consider a thicker cotton or even flannel sheets. These will provide extra insulation. If you are often hot, do not stray from cotton sheets. Cotton is far more breathable than silk or sateen which trap body heat leaving you feeling even warmer.

2. Curtains and blinds serve more than one purpose. Window coverings are often considered solely on how they look. However, it is important to note that curtains and blinds have many beneficial features. Room-darkening shades or curtains are ideal for those involved in shift work or who just like to sleep in every now and then. They keep a warm dark regardless of the time of day. In addition, a pair of drapes with an insulated backing can make your windows more energy efficient by deflecting heat or cold from the outside.

3. Paint colors directly affect the mood of a room. When choosing your room’s color palette, it is best to avoid bright, vibrant colors. These colors are not considered to be relaxing and may keep you from falling asleep. But don’t worry, you can still choose colors that you love, just make sure they are more subdued.
4. It’s important to have a soft place to rest your feet. While hardwood flooring and tile can be beautiful, they tend to be cold first thing in the morning. This is why most bedrooms have area rugs covering the area under and around the bed. They provide a soft, stepping- off point. If your room already has wall-to-wall carpeting then you’re off the hook… unless you hate the carpet. If this is the case, you can purchase an area rug that coordinates with the room and hopefully detracts from the carpet underneath.

5. You can never have too many pillows. In an otherwise neutral bedroom, accent pillows are a perfect way to add color to the space. You may even consider basing your bedroom’s color scheme off of that found on your accent pillows. This will create a cohesive look throughout the space and make the room’s decorating feel intentional, not haphazard.
