The Master Bedroom may be the largest room in the house. It may also be the grandest in terms of interior design/architecture. But sometimes, it is the last to be decorated. Perhaps, it is because other rooms in the house get more visitors’ attention.
We tend to make sure, for instance, that our kitchen or living room is always in modest condition with all creatives and decorations, because we know that anytime our friends or relatives would visit we would want them to feel special, or we want to showcase the best in our home.
But for the Master Bedroom, why bother? It’s only the family or the caretaker who sleep there, and it’s not for visitors/relatives. It’s a hassle having to keep it neat and orderly, right? What’s the point of having to put up decorations?
Well, such queries eventually dissipate as we learn that there are practical and simple ways you can apply to give your Master Bedroom a visual boost. Decorating does not have to be costly and complicated. Here are some of the ways you can do just that.
Set Spaces for Natural Groves
We all want our room to be a place of relaxation and rejuvenation. Wouldn’t it be wonderful that after a busy day, we eventually get caressed once we step into the Master Bedroom? Or that by simply being within the room, we would feel so at ease? But how would that be possible?
One way is by setting spaces for natural groves like plants. By decorating your room with potted plants, it will feel more like you are in a park or a forest.
Studies also show that merely staring at green sceneries gives a sudden boost of positive mood. What more if you also add herbal plants which exude natural fragrance to your room. The smell of lemongrass, for instance, can help fight off stress and relieve pressures.
Studies show that exposures to plants or herbs can help prolong life and develops your appreciation of the natural world.
Dash Your Wall with Creative Painting
Sure. You can choose which type of color you want your walls painted. That depends on which would satisfy our artistic side and even emotional inclination. For instance, you might want your walls painted with green because you love nature and the color reminds you of a thriving forest.
But guess what? You can take that to the next level. You can do that by incorporating a custom trim. You can also add design features on the wall, such as character drawings.
Get Ready with a Lot of Pillows and a Suited Blanket
Having a healthy stack of fluffy, soft, and squishy pillows can make a bedroom feel welcoming and touchable. Who wouldn’t love that?
Series or groups of neatly-set pads would make you want to jump off on the bed, do some flip-flops, and bask on the given pleasure. If you are a color savvy person, you would surely love these pillows match so they can complement each other perfectly.
But of course, pillows are not complete without a blanket. You can have one if it is thick enough. But you can have two or three if these are light blankets. Of course, choose the best quality that gives you the comfort you desire. If you are a parent, there are countless brands for adult blankets.
Have a Breathing Space
Master bedrooms usually get cluttered with a lot of objects and materials. But if yours has some bit of a space left, you might as well use it! If not, you could clear some not-so-important items and create a breathing space. It does not have to be big enough.
But a breathing space does not have to be empty. You can place a chair with a small table. You could also conduct productive time here, such as reading or writing. Or you could sit on your back and think about how to create positive things. A cozy corner just for yourself is undoubtedly an avenue to relieve the mind and soul.
Treat Your Bed Like a Majesty
Your bed is an essential part of the master bedroom. That is why treat it like a majesty so it will give you that treat as well. A lot of people downsize their bed to give way to a lot of things. Don’t do that. It will create a cramped atmosphere. A tight space where you could barely relax and breathe.
Make sure that your bed is efficiently set up with minimal items around it. And these items should be those which you deem more relevant to you.
Do Place Artworks and Creatives
If you are into creativity, do decorate your room with relevant artworks. Sometimes, we tend to do away with this because we prefer to place them in the living room. Not just for the family to see. But more importantly, for guests and visitors to admire.
But having aesthetically-beautiful items in your room can be a big way to help you loosen up from emotional baggage and instill positivity.
Make Every Corner Count
This does not mean that you get your master bedroom overcrowded. Do this in a sense to give every corner possible function, not merely for piling or storage purpose. Having unutilized corners can make the room feeling dull and lifeless. Give it an enhancement.
For instance, you may want to mount an instrument stand, say for a piano. You can also set up stylish hardware where you could place personalized items. Do also decorate what is already there. For instance, instead of having a plain cabinet, do give its upper layer some designs or added features.
