Has your master bedroom become a catch all for storage? Maybe it’s turned into a step child of left over décor and outdated furnishings. With a little imagination and creativity you can revamp your master bedroom décor in one simple weekend. Follow these recommendations from the design professionals and you’ll be on your way to creating a master bedroom that is a Zen like oasis retreat. There’s no time like the present to get started.
Remove all the furnishings from the room and décor from the walls. Prepare the walls for painting. Select a color that is warm and inviting avoiding darker colors. Darker accents can be introduced with fabrics and accessories. Painting the room will have a huge impact. Keep in mind that selecting a name for a baby is a huge decision, selecting a $20 gallon of paint. Don’t succumb to decision paralysis over the paint color. When returning the furniture to the room, consider first the placement of the bed. Ideally, the foot of the bed faces the door to the room. If possible, avoid placing the bed under a window. The final product should result in a combination of form and function. Place the bed such that there is room on either side for night stands.
Take advantage of the awesome savings offered by Groupon coupons and select from the awesome bedding and drapery options at Overstock.com. Avoid busy prints on both bedding and window panels. The goal is to achieve a calm, Zen feeling in the space. Edit furnishing and décor returned to the space. Avoid the temptation of displaying all of your collectibles and occasional furnishings. Select a few prominent pieces for the walls, hanging each item at eye level. Designate a table top for fresh flowers or cuttings from the garden to bring a bit of life into the room. Change this out on a weekly basis.
Finally, commit to storing items in the space that don’t belong. Treat this new master bedroom as your own tranquil space and you’ll enjoy it for years to come!
