One of the more challenging spaces to design and decorate, the master bedroom, is usually occupied by a couple. Inevitably, the master bedroom design involves clashing personal preferences, design styles and needs. Aside from that, a certain luxury is expected in the master bedroom, especially when compared to the other bedrooms in the house.
Choosing the theme of the room is the first step to creating a stunning bedroom look. For couples who share the master bedroom, this may be a more difficult process. Agreeing on one cohesive style is a must for a well put together bedroom. Try mixing your two varying styles to create a look that can reflect both your personalities. You may also go the opposite route and explore new styles both of you may love.
A design element that can make a huge impact in the bedroom is color, which can transform the ambiance of the bedroom. Choose a color that is pleasing and relaxing for both of you. Blues and greens can be soothing, while reds and oranges introduce warmth. You may also opt for a neutral color scheme of browns and beiges, which can be made luxurious with the right use of materials.
The main feature in any bedroom, the bed, should be an investment piece. A well-made bed with sturdy support and timeless elegance can last you for years to come. Make sure to pick out a mattress that is the correct fit for your bed frame. And choose a mattress that has a firmness suitable to your comfort needs.
The bedsides are the areas where couples can bring in personal touches. Aside from the personal items stored in your respective bedside drawers, you may also inject some personality with mismatched bedside tables. If you’re going for the eclectic, mismatched look, keep your table lamps uniform to pull the look together.
Some bedrooms also include functional features such as desks, closets and storage. For these shared bedroom features, it is important to establish designated areas for each person. Having separate storage spaces for work, clothes and personal items is essential to building a more organized bedroom space. - Aislinn Kee
