The most used room in our homes isn't often appreciated because most of our time in it is spent asleep. But make no mistake, the master bedroom is where we spend a good chunk of our time, so why not give it the attention it deserves? A comfortable bedroom makes it even easier to enjoy our oh-so-precious hours of sleep, so we have some tips that will turn your master bedroom into the safe haven you deserve. New paint, great lighting, and cozy furnishings are just a few of the things that go into creating the perfect master bedroom.
Step 1: The Perfect Paint Job
Finding the right color is the most fundamental step in giving your bedroom the perfect energy. We love light, neutral colors that leave room for colorful accents in your bed linens, pillows, and other accessories. However, you can let your personality be your guide when it comes to choosing your color. Whether you prefer tones of grey, blues, or reds, you'll be able to use color to give your bedroom a relaxing vibe. Just keep in mind that bright colors can be overly stimulating, so soft, muted shades are your friend.

Step 2: Let There Be Light
After the paint job, lighting is the next fundamental step in making any room, especially the bedroom, both beautiful and comfortable. In the bedroom, both the quality of light and design of the lighting fixtures are important to consider. Lamps at the bedside are a must for bedtime readers, and have the added benefit of highlighting any art and accessories. Lamps are also a great way to add some personal flair, as design options are limitless. Remember, this is your bedroom, no one else's so have fun with it!

Step 3: Keep It Cozy
After a long day (or a rough morning) sometimes we just need to sit down and take a breather for a moment. If your bedroom has the space for it, you might consider making your own little cozy corner. A comfortable chair, a lovely lamp, a side table, and maybe even a footrest give you a nice place to relax. The bed should only be for sleeping, so it's nice to have another piece of furniture in the room for when you're not quite ready for bed. If you plan to use this as a reading nook, consider putting your corner near a window to maximize natural light.

Step 4: Accessorize!
This is where you really let your personality shine. Wall art, framed pictures, luxurious mirrors, extra ambient lighting pieces, whatever you can think of that turns the bedroom into a space that's truly yours. Keep your room's color scheme in mind; you can choose accented colors that will really make your accessories pop. We won't give you any guidelines for this step; your own judgement is good enough.
These are just the fundamentals of what you can do to make your master bedroom the perfect space for rest and relaxation. If you're interested in doing a complete bedroom overhaul, contact Divine Home Remodeling today for a free estimate!
