Making changes is not always easy. Whether the change is in yourself, your home, or changing in a $100 bill.. Ok that last one is off-topic but it’s still tough, isn’t it?!
The venture can sometimes be overwhelming, or you just don’t know where to begin. Sometimes, though, changing a room can be thrilling and adventurous. Upgrading your master bedroom can make you feel relaxed and happy. Design isn’t necessarily everyone’s forte, and the options are often hard to imagine in your space. If you can muster the courage to think outside that little shoe box your head is sometimes keen to, you may surprise yourself.
Take color for example. What colors make you feel at ease? Try to stay away from the colors you always gravitate towards, since that color has probably been in each room of your home for decades. This is not about “Oh, that’s easy, my favorite color is purple”, this is about thinking outside that box remember? We are transforming that Master Suite! We need to think gorgeous, darlin!
White is sometimes a bit too clean, perhaps. If you have children, they can find a way to stain anything. But, hey, this is your room! Tell the kids to keep the cheese balls in the kitchen! Or even “My room is off-limits to munchkins!” Whatever you decide, white can give the feel of a luxurious penthouse, without that sinful price tag. Consider a fluffy white down comforter, a couple of throw pillows in an out-of-the-box color for an accent. Drapes can offer a place for a contrasting color, as well. Sheer curtains between the drapes allow light to naturally filter bright sunlight while still brightening the bedroom. If you can, try out a new, luxury bedroom set.
Don’t be afraid, you can do this! If it isn’t budget friendly, there are still options available. You can find lovely pieces at the thrift store, or keep your old set and put the husband to work refinishing. He needed something to do, anyway. You can paint, stain, or sand your current bedroom set and give it a face lift without the large investment of new furnishings. Replacing the drawer-pulls and other hardware can make it look like a different set altogether. If you have a lot of dead space, fill it up! Adding a window seat, a reading nook, or bench seat at the foot of the bed can really improve the visuals. Adding a beautiful area rug can cover problem areas, and bring colors together.
Another job for Mr. Handy Hubby, (You’re welcome) could be new light fixtures that can give the room the lighting you want for your boudoir. Lamps on the nightstand that match the overhead chandelier can also add a touch of class. Once the room is complete with all of the upgrades you implement, take a shopping trip to add smaller elements. A soft throw tossed across the bed, new bedding, pillows, and shams, just naming a few. There are also interior designers that may help you get some ideas. Luxury Master Bedrooms are not the things of fairy tales, anymore ladies. Get to shoppin’! Designing your new suite can make your home uplifting again, enjoying that new room is a whole new level of euphoria! Don’t get too comfortable when your work is complete, you still must function like a real adult…
