How to Transform Your Master Bedroom - Top Decorating Tips and Tricks

When it comes to decorating your home, often there is a lot of attention given to those common rooms, the rooms that are used by all, including guests when they come over. It's not unusual for homeowners to invest a fair amount of time and money on rooms such as the kitchen, living room, and even the main bathroom to ensure each are trendy, welcoming, and well thought out. But what about the other rooms in your house? Just because they aren't common rooms, it doesn't make them less important.

Master Bedroom Transformations

One room that may not always get the attention it deserves is the master bedroom. Think about it, you spend at least six or seven hours in there per day, so don't you want a space that you feel comfortable in, one that promotes a sense of relaxation and Zen? Even if you only use the room for sleeping, the décor you use and the way you set up the room can make it more or less conducive for a restful night's sleep.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at the top decorating tips and tricks from the pros specifically for your master bedroom. Whether you choose to follow just a couple or the full list, you will be able to transform the space and create that bedroom you deserve.

Upgrade Your Furniture
Obviously, this first tip will be mostly dependent on your budget, but upgrading your furniture can have a substantial overall impact on the look and feel of your room. It can also help where the layout is concerned. Your bedroom may feel a bit tight and cramped when it comes to space. In reality, the size and amount of furniture you have in the area could be the culprit rather than the actual size of the room.
Also, if you have furniture that is chipped, broken, or is no longer stylish, it may be time to move on and invest in new pieces.
If you are looking for a cheaper way to upgrade your furniture, you may want to consider painting or staining it if possible, changing out the hardware, and making repairs.

Add a Big Pop of Interest by Using Wallpaper
Wallpaper is one of those design trends that doesn't always get the credit it deserves. All too often people have an image in their mind of what wallpaper used to be decades ago, and that is just no longer the case. Not only have design trends changed, meaning new prints, colours, and textures, but even the technology itself has changed. Wallpaper is now easier and faster to hang, as well as remove.
If you're still on the fence, take a look at what Fashion Interiors have to offer regarding today's latest wallpaper trends. There are various price points to look at on their site, and you can narrow it down by design such as vintage, damask, floral modern, geometric, art deco, etc. It's also quite common to use wallpaper on just one feature wall to act as that pop of colour and interest. Fashion Interiors has you covered in this regard too as you can really find some stand-out options.
You may want to start just by browsing the internet just to get an idea of the options out there today, as this can get your design juices flowing. And if you are going to do just a feature wall, you can then use the wallpaper to pull colours from for the paint on the other three walls, as well as your bedding to tie it all together.


A Fresh Coat of Paint is a Must
No matter how you plan to change the design, new furniture or not, a fresh coat of paint is an absolute must in your master bedroom makeover. A new coat of paint helps to brighten up a room and make it look fresh and new. Not only that, it's one of the most budget-friendly ways to create a sizable impact.
The hardest part about painting your bedroom will likely be picking a colour. This is where you can look at other elements of the design for inspiration. As we noted above, if you plan on using, wallpaper you can pick a colour from the paper. If not, you can use your bedding, artwork, décor, or even elements in your home for inspiration. Keep in mind that because your bedroom is closed off from the rest of your house, you don't have to stay within the same colour palette. Flow won't be a priority with the rest of the home.
If you're aiming for a trending makeover, one of the hottest looks for 2018 is to pick "dark brooding colours". These include rich browns, burgundy, navy, and green just to name a few.

Add Drama with Curtains
If you're searching for a way to boost the level of drama, elegance, and sophistication in your bedroom, then curtains can be an excellent solution. Again, there are a variety of colours, textures, prints, and fabrics to choose from, each of which will create its own statement. If you want maximum drama, opt for a dense material that flows down to the floor. You can also hang the curtain rod higher than the actual window frame to create the illusion of floor to ceiling windows.

Go All Out on Your Bedding
Due to the size of your bed, there's a good chance it will be the main piece of furniture in your bedroom. With that said, you want to make it pop, yet be comfortable all at the same time. A great way to achieve both of these criteria is to go all out on bedding and not be afraid to layer different prints, textures, and colours. This means multiple pillows, a duvet as well as a throw blanket, and sheets that tie everything together.
People can spend a small fortune on dressing their bed, but that's not a necessity to achieve the desired look. If you're going to splurge on any of the bedding, make it the sheets since those will be closest to your body.

Use Décor and Artwork to Anchor and Pull Things Together
Another excellent design tip is to use artwork and décor pieces to anchor everything in the room together and ensure it all flows. Without these pieces, the room can look a bit disjointed and there may not be that clear design vision present. Décor shows that extra thought was put into the room, and it can also show off your personality. There is no harm in having a little fun with the pieces you pick, and don't worry about everything matching perfectly. When things are a bit mismatched, it helps to add interest to the room.

Top it All Off with Lighting
The final tip is to top the entire look off with the perfect lighting. The ideal lighting is a combination of overhead as well as task and/or ambience lighting. This can include options such as floor or bedside table lamps, wall sconces, etc.

A Beautiful and Inviting Space to Enjoy
After taking all the steps necessary to transform your master bedroom, don't be surprised if you find yourself spending more and more time in the space, thanks to the fact that you have just created that perfect relaxing oasis in the home.
