Why not get a jump start on spring cleaning? Winter, while you’re holed up inside, is the perfect time to reevaluate your room décor. There’s no better time to simplify and make your master bedroom more sophisticated yet cozy. If you’re looking for the perfect way to make your room a little more lux, look no further. We’ve got some easy tips and tricks that will transform your master bedroom into a place you’ll want to stay all day.
1. Make it “So You”
Before you start stripping your room to the beams, make sure you know your style. Consult your Pinterest board to figure out if you’re more luscious and lux or minimalistic and modern. Perusing other boards in that style you love can help you make a plan that’ll result in a put-together master bedroom rather than hodgepodge havoc. What have other people done that you really like? What pieces do you already have and love? Is there anything you currently own you want to keep and build on? Looking around at what you have and like can go a long way when it comes to creating a masterpiece of a master bedroom.
2. Start with the Centerpiece
The most important part of any bedroom is the bed. For a really put-together room start here and build everything else around it. Feel free to play with textures and fabrics to make your bed irresistibly cozy. If your sheets aren’t super soft, ditch ‘em. Up the thread count, up the comfort. For a classy just-woke-up-in-the-south-of-France feel, try some matelassé bedding. The timeless quilting looks both comfy and sophisticated while adding depth to whatever color scheme you choose. Be sure not to skimp on throw pillows in varying fabrics and colors to top it off. Pair it with a plush throw or down duvet at the end of you bed and you’ll never want to leave.
3. Open Things Up
When it comes to windows, there are countless budget-friendly ways to transform your room. Natural light can be a makeover all in its own, so make sure any windows are clear of drawers, dressers or headboards that might steal away the sunshine. Next, find the perfect curtains to create a calming effect. Ditch any vertical blinds for a curtain rod to make things instantly classier. Spend the extra $10 on a stainless-steel rod and try sheer curtains for an effortlessly sexy look.
4. Get Comfortable from Head to Toe
Finding the perfect rug can change the whole look of a room. If you have hardwood floors, stepping out onto the cold floor after a good night’s sleep can be a little jarring. Now’s your chance to go plush. A big, fuzzy rug will make it a whole lot easier to hop out of bed every morning. I’m not talking those shag rugs from the 70s. There’s a lot of stylish and soft options out there perfect for your room, from sheepskin to shabby chic you’re sure to find one you love.
5. Bring in the Outdoors
Combat the cabin fever with some easy-to-care-for plants. A good succulent or spider plant is nearly impossible to kill and can do wonders when it comes to making any room more welcoming and comfortable. Large standing plants are beautiful if you have the room, but setting something small on a desk or nightstand can help create a calming feel in the master bedroom. After all, there’s no better way to combat the winter blues than with some greens.
6. Make Small Changes
Sometimes the simplest changes can give your room a whole new level of sophistication. Swap out standard drawer pulls to completely transform your dresser or nightstand in a matter of minutes. Stuck with dated doorknobs? Try changing them out with simple stainless steel to go from shabby to sophisticated. Ditch that discolored lampshade for something sleeker or changing out outlet panels. Sometimes the little things can make a big difference.
Putting together your dream bedroom might be easier than you think. A pillow here and there or new curtains can give your master bedroom a modern touch. While it’s dreary outside focus on making your dream room inside. Happy decorating!
