The master bedroom is an escape from the pressures of the day, a place to relax and unwind. To some, the Master Bedroom is their favorite room of the house because it conveys this feeling when they enter into it. If your master does not quite have the ambiance you desire maybe it’s time to reconsider the components in the room to change the space.
First off clear the clutter. Remove the exercise equipment, remove the extra items on the dressers and night stands, declutter. In Fung Shui the philosophy of less is more and the placement of items can create a calming effect in the mind. Remove all those distraction that you have all day long. The easiest way to imagine this is, think how you feel when you first walk into a hotel room when on vacation. Relief, relaxation and just a sigh of here we are. Your Master bedroom should feel the same.
In any bedroom the focus is the bed. Start by finding the best possible mattress you can afford, and then add a frame that you LOVE. Maybe it is just a headboard, or maybe it is a complete four poster bed. Whatever style you like, go for it since the bed is the first thing you see when you enter the room. Next will be the bedding.
Bedding gives the room the luxurious feeling. The color, quality, style, amount of pillows and the throw all create the ambiance of the room. The bedding highlights the focal point of your room.
Lighting in a bedroom usually is ambiance lighting, set on tables emitting a soft relaxing feeling. Adding drapery to windows also affects the light in the room. These help with darkening the room and for some, to get a restful night. pic
The other furniture will depend on the needs of storage and the size of the room. Make sure that you have enough storage so that it keeps the clutter at bay.
Many clients will ask what the ideal color is to paint a bedroom. Of course my gut is to always go with the color palette that you love. Most likely it will be featured in the bedding and possible the drapery that you have chosen. There have been studies done though on how color can affect sleep so if you are more of the scientific type person you might want to consider that.
So if shut eye is important consider your color choice but non the less, strive to make your master room one that is relaxing, and it will become one of your favorite rooms in your house.
