Designing an exceptional master bedroom

Perhaps the luckiest person on earth is the one who wakes up in a bedroom fit for a king. It is indeed a pleasure to welcome a new day in the confines of luxuriously soft sheets tucked in a modernly plush four-poster bed.There is no limitation to designing your dream master bedroom save for the condition that you need to have everything you want in the one place you deem the most important. It is okay to indulge in creative and one-of-a-kind ideas in the largest and the most essential bedroom of your own home. You just have to bear in mind that this is a place for rest and relaxation. One of the secrets of modern interior design is to put in the things that are close to your heart without sacrificing comfort and a clutter-free, private atmosphere.

Comfortable Sleeping Quarters

The key to designing an exceptional master bedroom is the layout. It is ideal to enter the bedroom without immediately seeing the bed. Privacy and an element of surprise are the reasons behind this. If, however, the space will not permit such an arrangement, then try to situate the bed where its edge will not directly point at the door. The bed should also be placed where natural daylight can be allowed to enter and shine abundantly. The best place will be in front of a window overlooking a glorious view outside. Full-length curtains are more appropriate to vertical or horizontal blinds in the master bedroom because they have a softer and grander appeal. If you are fortunate enough to have a room with a bay window, then you can place built-in seats and have patterned roman shades to diffuse the glare of sunlight. Some large master bedrooms have foyers and comfortable living area sets adjacent to the main room. Thus the design theme of these areas should coincide with the entire space.

The bed is the core element of a master bedroom design. You can be very selective with this furniture. It is a functional investment that will last for years and it must serve your sleeping requirements to its utmost potential. That being considered, the king-size bed should be a combination of the personal preferences and tastes of the occupants. It will be neither, too feminine or too masculine in its features. For its design, why not choose a contemporary platform bed with hardwood base and a 6”-8” firm mattress. When you are shopping for it in furniture stores, check it out and lie on it to get an actual feel of how it will suit you and your bedroom. The headboard can be of a different style completely separate from the bed. Headboard designs can be personalized. You can make use of padded walls or an accent wall that starts from the floor up to the ceiling or mid-height. Install cove lighting at the back of the layered wall to give the back wall/headboard an interestingly warm glow.

Consider accessorizing with some unique artwork or linear shelves for an amazing detail. The embellishments shouldn’t stop there. There are large and small pillows to be selected. Duvet covers or throw fabrics are also must-haves to add character to the bed. You can mix and match textures, patterns and shapes. Placing console benches at the foot of the bed is also great for the design. Standing and table lamps for the side of the bed will also enhance the ambiance of the bedroom. It’s always fun to accessorize. It’s also a way of personalizing the look of your bedroom, making it a place where your wants and interests merge harmoniously.
