The master bedroom isn’t
just a place to sleep. It should be a place of tranquility and a safe haven that
you know you can retreat to at the end of a long working day, and feel completely
at ease. To create a sleek master bedroom, there are certain functionalities
and design features you need to consider in order to properly maximize your
space and create the bedroom retreat you’ve always dreamed of.
It’s All About the Bed
Your bed really is the central focus of the room.
Not only do you want your bed to be comfortable and functional, but you want it
to look sleek and impressive, too. Designs like Italian platform beds give a
modern and stylish aesthetic by providing the seamless illusion of a ‘floating’
bed.’ Modern beds can be integrated cohesively with a smooth design, and with a
wide variety of colors and materials available, you’ll always find a bed that
matches your room’s style.
When you’ve chosen an impressive bed, you’ll
want it positioned as centrally as possible so it can be the focal point of the
room and promote a better sense of comfort and style.
Arrange Your Lighting in
the Right Way
Lighting really does make all the difference to
a room. The wrong lighting can easily betray the mood of a room, no matter how
well you’ve decorated or furnished it otherwise. Warm lighting is always
preferable for a bedroom in order to create a cozier atmosphere, but that doesn’t
mean that brighter or white lighting can’t work, as long as it is in keeping
with the tone of the room.
For modern and sleek design, think functional
lighting, such as wall lights, side table lamps, and a contemporary main lighting
fixture. Lighting around the bed as a focal point is also a great idea.
Think About Color Choices
In order for your master bedroom to flow smoothly,
you’ll need to consider your
color choices carefully. If you’re using limited color, then you can create
a modern and stylish space that is bright and open using lighter colors or even
white, and set them off with classic features such as light wood or plain furnishings.
If you are using color, then you need to be sure
that your walls work together and that all soft furnishings and furniture
choices match. You can use contrasting colors, but ensure the colors still
complement one another rather than working against one another. To be able to feel
comfortable and relaxed in your master bedroom, you want your color scheme to feel
at peace rather than jarring.
Dress the Floor
Wooden flooring can easily be dressed to create
a stylish design. Older flooring can be sanded and stained to create an updated
look, or you can have new wooden slats fitted to match your design. This can
then be dressed in a sleeker way with
flowing soft rugs and footrests to add a softer touch to the bedroom.
If your room has carpet or if you’re considering
carpet, make sure it is in keeping with the color scheme of the room. Lighter
carpets can open a room up and make it feel brighter.
