At the end of the day after we have worked, cooked, parented, and done everything we can for others — we all deserve to unwind in a space of our own.
A master bedroom can become an afterthought in painting and design plans because guests are not anticipated to spend time there.
With putting ourselves last or forgetting to add our bedroom to the list of spaces to update, the room can become a catch-all or landing spot for items and decor throughout the home that have lost their spot.
Rather than coming into your room after a long day and sitting on the edge of your bed to dress down, consider putting in a chair or two for those quiet moments before trying to sleep.
Adding a seating area also helps to distinguish that this is not simply a room for sleeping but also a private sanctuary to enjoy a good book or just a few moments of peace in comfort.
You can even take your morning coffee in this cozy spot to ease into the day without interruption.
Wood, laminate, and tile flooring can be gorgeous additions to any home but they can also be shockingly unpleasant when your feet touch down in the morning.
Soften the look of your room by adding a rug underneath your bed to give the last few steps before hitting your mattress a soft, inviting feel.
If you’re opting to keep the serenity in your room with subdued tones, a rug can also give you a change to add a pop of a bright color or differing patterns for a little pizzazz and personal touch.
This may seem like an odd suggestion because everyone loves proudly displaying their memories but your room should belong to you alone — or you and a partner.
Pictures of your children, pets, parents or extended family don’t pull you away from life into a comforting oasis of quietude to remind you that you are allowed to be yourself as well.
Hanging photos of you and your partner can lend to a more romantic feel in your room and a deepened sense of intimacy within its four walls.
So put out the photos of everyone in the gallery collections adorning your hall or the frames scattered among your living room decor, but keep your bedroom to yourself.
Have you ever laid in your bed and stared at the light fixture that came with your home?
Often, the fixtures are designed exclusively to provide light and rarely much in the way of style.
Not only does a chandelier add a touch of elegance to a room but you can install it with a dimmer switch to soften the lighting to suit your mood.
Finally, avoid your room becoming that catch-all where the homeless items in the house go to sit on shelves.
Clutter in a master bedroom keeps your mind from truly relaxing at the end of the day and your room should always provide you with your space to unwind and breathe.
Incorporate minimal, thought out decor that serves to remind you of a happy memory or help you relax.
Remember that you have an entire home in which to spread your mementos and you can keep your room free of the mental static that comes with too much furniture and knick knacks.
