No matter the size or shape of your master bedroom, it has the potential to be the most impressive room in your home. And as your personal space for relaxing, unwinding and literally closing the door on the stresses of a busy day, why shouldn’t you enjoy the delights of a showstopper bedroom. Before you start your bedroom transformation, consider your proposed layout and how you want to achieve your new look. It’s easier if you have a focal point to work around, like the bed or another piece of furniture or a specific colour.
Nolonger ornate and fussy, four poster beds are now the epitome of contemporary design. Sleek, minimalist and, if white-washed, will create a stylish contrast with dark grey or teal walls and bedding. As a real centrepiece, you can go to town with the accessories – plenty of textures, cushions and fairy lights! With a youthful and playful appeal, you can’t help but be inspired by a four poster bed.
Contemporary floral wallpaper has been enjoying a massive resurgence in recent years, and this trend is not about to go anywhere just yet. With an amazing selection to choose from, such as this beauty available from Lime Lace, new walls will provide a transformation that doesn’t have to cost the earth. A statement wall behind your bed will look stunning and is easy to achieve. For your bedding you may wish to choose a specific shade from your wallpaper and replicate it in different textures.
During lockdown we’ve had plenty of time to consider our living spaces and how they work for us, or don’t. Growing consideration is now being given to an area of relaxation, beyond the bed, whether for reading, screen-time or daydreaming. Room ideas incorporating a futon, chaise longue, window seat, or simply a comfy chair with a footstool, are becoming increasingly popular. Some of these furniture pieces can multi-task too, such as a window seat with storage space below and above, thus improving functionality and fully maximising the room’s space. How about this beautiful boudoir, featuring another wow factor wallpaper from Lime Lace?
Whatever the dimensions of your master bedroom, built-in furniture will create a sophisticated and and streamlined look, allowing other design elements of the room to stand out, as well as making the best use of all available space. If you’re looking to create extra storage, cleverly designed over-bed cabinets can look stylish and uncluttered, even in a small room. Fitted dressing tables will sit flush to wardrobes for a neat appeal space saving qualities. Larger bedrooms can incorporate elements of a dressing room – the ultimate in master bedroom luxury. Whether there are beams, sloping ceilings or a chimney breast to work around, built-in storage will hug the contours of your room, giving the impression of space and reducing the likelihood of clutter reappearing.
Make Your Bed The Wow Factor
Unless you have other plans, the bed is often the place to start when designing your bedroom. If you have a simple divan bed awaiting a makeover, why not simply adorn with luxurious new bedding in a variety of neutral shades and textures? A new headboard can make all the difference whether painted, upholstered or created from reclaimed wood with floating bedsides. We’ve touched on 4 poster beds, but how about a fully upholstered bed as an alternative showstopper.
