Master Bedroom Must-Haves
April 26, 2018
ou finally got the master bedroom of your dreams. It’s going to be your oasis. Now what do you do with it? Here are some must-have ideas for your master bedroom space.
Invest in comfort
If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to invest in a high quality mattress and linens. Whether you spring for that king-size (or even California king!) or stick with a queen size mattress, this is the time to finally splurge a little for the extra comfort. There is nothing better than new linens, too! Your body will thank you for it later!
This might be silly, but don’t forget to arrange your master bedroom strategically around the outlets. You hate to purchase furniture and have everything set up perfectly only to realize the only outlets for your lamps or cell phones are in an inconvenient location. Take a moment to plan for this.
The experts recommend more neutral colors and decor for the bedroom to incite relaxation and encourage the best possible sleep. Plus, if it’s a huge space, it’s easier to decorate when you have a simple color scheme.
Though you want to be careful not to clutter your bedroom too much, it’s worth considering transforming your master bedroom into a dual space. You could add a small loveseat or comfy chair to a corner to create a mini sitting area: perfect for reading or relaxing. Some people may be interested in creating a small workspace or desk within the bedroom. That might not be ideal for everyone, but it instills the same idea of using the master bedroom as a dual space. An upholstered bench on the end of the bed is also something we love!
Shelving and Storage
Whether you purchase a piece of stand alone furniture or it’s affixed to the wall, shelving is a must-have in your master bedroom. Line the shelves with books or if you have an e-reader preference, fill the shelves with photographs, candles, and other small items will give your space a personalized touch. If you don’t have a big closet for storage, consider multi-functional pieces of furniture, like storage built into the bed frame or hollowed ottomans.
Wake up with the sun in your new master bedroom. Great windows and lighting are a must-have for your space. Natural light is great for your health and helps establish an easy morning routine. Look for master bedrooms that have well-placed windows, and a great view is a plus.
