The master bedroom is an important feature in any home. But often it doesn’t get the attention it deserves, with more time spent decorating kitchens and bathrooms. However, you do spend a lot of your time in the bedroom, even if it’s just to sleep. So, it should look and feel good.
Here’s five ways to give your master bedroom a style upgrade:
Add some classic period features
Some classic period features just ooze style. So, adding or reinstating these into older homes can transform a bedroom.
Try fitting skirting boards, ceiling roses, fireplaces and coving to add a bit of character and style to your bedroom.
Install his and hers wardrobes
If your master bedroom has a chimney breast on one wall, you’ll no doubt have two awkward alcoves on either side. These are the ideal for fitting his and hers wardrobes, without taking up any useful floorspace.
You could get bespoke wardrobes built into the alcove by a good local joiner or buy some ready-made ones that fit snugly into the spaces.
Dress the window properly
Windows are a prominent feature of the bedroom. But all too often they are let down by crumpled curtains and flimsy blinds. Dressing your window properly will add style and make your room feel more ‘grown up’.
Smart, modern shutters and professionally hung, made-to-measure curtains are two good ways to upgrade your windows.
Give your bed the five-star treatment
The biggest feature of the bedroom is going to be the bed. So, it’s a good idea to give this some attention to. And why not turn it into a bed that’s fitting of a five-star hotel?
Start with a good frame – whether it’s a fab upholstered one, a timeless wooden one or classic metal frame. And make sure you’ve got a decent mattress to go with it. Then all you need to do is add the layers – soft sheets, warm duvet and some lovely throws, pillows and cushions.
Style-up the lighting
A simple pendant light with a paper or fabric shade is all very well, but lighting can be so much more stylish. So going all-out with your bedroom lighting is a good way to upgrade your master.
Wall lights have made a comeback in bedrooms. Stylish lights above the bedside tables not only look good but they save on space too. And with so many chic designs, wall light brackets themselves are just as important as the type of shade you choose.
