Become the Master of Your Master Bedroom

Your bedroom is your private getaway place where you can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of your home. Besides having a comfortable bed to relax on, you may have other bits of furniture such as a desk, dresser, night stand, and maybe even a nice spacious walk-in closet. You may even be lucky enough to have a balcony or patio that is connected to your room that allows for easy access to the outside.

No matter what amenities you have to make up your room, you can make it even more of a private getaway destination if you take just a few extra steps. Like most people, you probably spend anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day in your bedroom. It’s where you sleep, take naps, maybe watch some television, and get away from it all.

A well-organized and designed room can help to make you feel even more comfortable in your domicile. With the everyday rat-race, you may not have a lot of time to get your room in tip-top shape, but following these simple steps should be enough to turn an ordinary bedroom into a castle built for a queen (or king).

Color Scheme.  Warm, neutral colors on your walls and ceiling can help set a relaxing tone in your bedroom. Pastel and earthy colors are another great option to lighten the “stress” of everyday life. Bright colors stimulate the mind and keep you more active, something you are probably trying to avoid after a long day of work. Furniture and fabric schemes should also complement each other to create a more relaxing environment.

Choose The Right Bed.  Your bed is obviously the focal point of your bedroom, but choosing the right one can have a huge impact on your room. A larger bed can make it feel like you have less space, while a smaller bed may give the illusion of having too much open space. Pick a size according to the specifications of the room and make sure it is comfortable and soft enough to get some much needed rest on.

Wall Décor.  Wallpaper or paint can accentuate a room, but it can also deteriorate the mental psyche if it is not conducive to a relaxing environment. Even plain colored walls can be lit up by adding paintings, photographs or your child’s art work. Whatever you choose, make sure it is relaxing to you.

Flooring Material.  Hardwood, carpet, or laminated flooring can be much more relaxing on the eyes than marble, ceramic, or granite floors. If your floor is cold and hard, it will reflect in the overall atmosphere of the room. Give your feet a nice, warm landing pad and it will go a long way to achieve the bliss you are searching for.

Consider Traffic In Your Room.  A good traffic pattern in your room can alleviate the stresses of kids or spouses being in your way. A good rule of thumb is to allow two feet of space for walking through. Also, having clear walking paths can make it easier to navigate through, causing less stress of bumping into things constantly.

Proper Lighting.  Lamp shades, and adjustable lighting switches can help to create the perfect atmosphere in your room. Proper ambiance will also allow you to rest more comfortably. Your room is your personal dwelling. Make it your own and escape from the rest of the world in peace and comfort.
