Although it’s common knowledge that the kitchen is regarded as the heart of every home, some people disagree. They feel that the master bedroom should rather be awarded that coveted title, seeing as we spend almost one-third of our lives between the sheets.
But a good night’s sleep aside, how do we design the ideal master bedroom for an adult without going overboard in terms of luxuries, clutter, etc?
1. For your master bedroom: Luxurious linens
Consider fine bedding an investment in your health, seeing as all studies show how vital a good night’s sleep is. Kick-off your master bedroom design with some fine-quality sheets, a cosy down comforter, your favourite blanket or throw, and pillows designed to aid in a comfortable sleeping position.
Who knows, you might just find yourself looking more and more forward to coming home every day.
2. For your master bedroom: Layered lighting
Even the most beautifully styled space will be regarded as a fail if those lighting levels aren’t up to standard. But keeping the dark out shouldn’t be your bedroom lighting’s main mission. Different lighting fixtures made from different materials and finishes have the ability to complement a room’s existing style, so start seeing your artificial lights as part of your décor.
And ensure you include special task lighting in your room, especially for reading in bed (wall-mounted sconces, anyone/) and getting dressed every morning.
3. For your master bedroom: Sufficient storage
Physical clutter has a way of inducing a cluttered and clouded mind – and that’s never good for a space intended to relax you.
If you like reading in bed, ensure you have a nightstand or some shelving to stash away your favourite reading materials. And if you have a problem/addiction when it comes to fashion, see how you can jazz up your closet or wardrobe to include more storage space (i.e. like storing your shoes in shoe stands or storage cubbies).
4. For your master bedroom: A seating spot
by Summerhaus D'zign
Why sit on your already perfectly made bed to put on some shoes? Something as simple as an upholstered bench or comfy armchair can easily be squeezed into a bedroom corner, or even placed right in front of your bed (depending on space and budget, of course).
Hint: Just like everything else in your bedroom, your choice in seating also needs to complement your room’s existing style. Placing a contemporary, stainless-steel chair, for instance, in a colonial-style bedroom will just look wrong.
