Master Bedroom Decorating Ideas
Fresh out of master bedroom decorating ideas? Does your bedroom give you a sense of peace? Are you able to unwind and turn off the chaos when you step into your boudoir? Read on to see all the exciting I have in store for your bedroom.
Your home should be a place of peace and tranquility. A place to relax after a hard day. It may have many functions depending on the room. We gather our family and friends in the living room, dining area and game rooms or even the kitchen when we are entertaining.
Taking care of your home, although doable, can be a huge undertaking with all the other responsibilities life throws at you but it is imperative that you set aside some time for self regeneration. In setting aside some time it is also important to create a space that allows you to unwind. For me that space is my bedroom. Let’s take a look at some master bedroom decorating ideas to draw some inspiration.
Bedroom Wall Color Ideas
Your bedroom wall color will set the stage to defining a style and what the room will represent for you. The decor and accessories should not only be a compliment but add to the ambiance without overwhelming the space. Choose soothing or cooler hues for your walls to create a calming affect. Decorate with the intention of using visually pleasing colors to reinforce your level of comfort.
Dark gray-blue is a cooler hue that will add a little drama and calm down the space. Leaving you with a feeling of relaxation and ready for sweet dreaming. This color pallete can be a little heavy so it is advised that you break up the heaviness by accessorizing with some lighter colors. Inject some white accents such as pillows and throws to reflect light. If white is too much than go with hues of yellow.
Keeping the restlessness away can seem like a difficult task but with a little patience and knowledge of how different colors will affect your mood you can introduce some calmness to your bedroom that will have you calling the sandman in no time. Green is a color that will also effectuate calm and comfort. Choose a color palette with green hues and tones to promote a relaxation station that you will be happy to chillax in.
When sophistication is what you are after try a muted blue-green color to set the stage and create a relaxing scene. You must also consider the age of the people occupying the bedroom. If sleep and rest is the purpose then I would not encourage bright colors for an adult but would rather encourage these colors for a child’s room. Purple is a color that signifies royalty, however experts suggest this color encourages unpleasant dreams so keep it away from your bedroom walls.
Bedroom Wall Decor Ideas
Paint is not the only way add flair to your bedroom. Try some wall jewelry such as canvas paintings. Canvas panels are stylish and a pretty awesome way to make a statement. Balance is important in home decorating so If you have one large panel, make sure it is not wider than the furniture it will be over. Be sure to hang it within your eye’s view.
Decorating with several canvas panels that make up one picture can be fun. Just remember to arrange them with about two inches in between each panel and six inches on each side to give a centered appearance. Whatever you do be consistent to produce a more uniform look. If you have smaller pictures you can create wall art by building a collection. Applying 2-3 rows of like pictures or themed collections are always a good idea. Be sure to use the same spacing rules for this look as well. Take a look at some other wall art ideas for your master bedroom.

Master Bedroom Furniture Ideas
Bedroom furniture is just as important as the decor. Make your master bedroom a masterpiece by showcasing a beautiful backdrop. Upholstered headboards ooze sophistication and class. I was able to get a really chic black king-sized one from Groupon for only $200. Tufted headboards with a velvet fabric is an easy and fabulous way to incorporate some elegance and drama into your beauteous bedchamber.
No more traditional master bedroom furniture because of this headboard idea that is trending. It is one for the DIYers. The rustic farmhouse design style is trending this season. Distressed furniture, wrought iron accessories and vintage signs all lend themselves to this decor. Add in an old distressed door and you have yourself an exceptional, one of a kind headboard making your bed the centerpiece of the room.
There is more to a room than the bed and the walls. It’s also important to develop a space that promotes a relaxing mood outside of the bed. After all, your life is too busy to be sleep all day. Bring in a couple of cozy chairs to catch up on some reading or a chase lounge for some outside gazing or just to inspire some thinking. Add in a couple of nightstands on each side to give visual balance for a more complete look.
Master Bedroom Flooring Ideas
Do not forget about your floor! Your preference depends on your personality. For me, I like to think that when I step outside of my covers and my feet hit the floor that my toes won’t be shocked by the temperature of the floor. If you are like me you will want to include carpet or a nice area rug in your bedroom decor. There are so many choices. Carpet not only is kind to your feet it also serves as an insulator for those cold winter mornings. Energy efficient also comes to mind when that heating bill comes in.
If you are in a warmer climate, carpet may not be your number one choice. Hardwood floors are very popular and add a nice natural aesthetic to the room. Your choices can include, reclaimed woods, red oak, maple planks and distressed wide planks. Whatever your preference, hardwood flooring are definitely a beautiful option.
Vinyl flooring has been making a comeback in home flooring. This is because it is not that cheap looking vinyl from grandma’s house anymore. They have a variety of flavors that give you the look of hardwood without the cost or high maintenance making clean up pretty easy and it lasts long too.
Small Bedroom Decorating Ideas
If you are anything like me you do not have a lot of bedroom space. There will be no chase lounge, seating area, breakfast nook thingy. All you have room for is a bed, a dresser, one side table and a television. How do you make this work? Just keep reading and I will show you how to make your small bedroom have big style.
Small bedrooms are no different than any other small space. Play with colors and drapery to make the room appear larger. Be sure to use lighter color shades like creams, pale grays and blues. You can also use the monochromatic color scheme. Monochromatic is where you apply different tones and hues or variations of one color in your color scheme. Place your curtains above the window frame to draw the eyes upward. This will create the appearance of higher ceilings.
It is good practice to use multipurpose furniture so that you can have seating that doubles as storage. A cute little ottoman that has a detachable lid to put pillows and throws in when they are not being used is a great way to add some flair while saving space. You can also position your bed diagonally instead of straight against the wall.
Use light fixtures with swing arms that can be mounted instead of lamps on a side table so that you are not wasting any space. If saving space is essential to you and you don’t have to worry about waking up on the floor if you roll over in the middle of night, then go with a daybed. It will provide you with a cozy little space to curl up with a good book and relax.
