How To Transform Your Master Bedroom Into A Blissful Retreat
In today’s hectic lifestyle schedule, homeowners need a special place to unwind at the end of a long day where time stands still and relaxation is paramount. The master bedroom is an excellent place to switch your smartphone ringer to VIP, grab the book you’ve been longing to read or catch up on your latest on-demand programs.
Here are several considerations to include in your forever master retreat:
Vaulted or High Ceilings
We generally think of vaulted ceilings in the family room or high ceilings in the dining room, but they are also a great place for the master bedroom. Vaulted or raised ceiling gives the illusion of more space and promotes a sanctuary retreat.
Warm Mood Lighting
In addition to possible recessed lighting or other ceiling lights, consider adding a dimmer switch to all hard-wired lights as well as placing lights on separate switches so you can pick and choose which lights you desire to enjoy. We also recommend multiple table and floor lamps for reading and winding down.
Relaxing Color Palette
Color plays an important role in a person’s mood, emotion, and the ability to sleep. For example, blue colors are said to evoke feelings of peace and calm, red evokes passion, and yellow evokes clarity, enlightenment, and positivity. Choosing a color palette that represents your ideal retreat atmosphere will go a long way in creating a room you can’t wait to enjoy at the end of each day.
Cozy, Comfy Chair
A cozy, comfy chair nestled in the corner with a warm, overhanging floor lamp creates the perfect space to wind down to a good book or movie before bed and warm coffee and the newspaper or iPad in the morning.
Create A Clutter Free Zone
Our lives are generally cluttered with papers on our desks, leftovers in the fridge, unopened mail, and unchecked task list items. The last place we need to experience clutter is in the master bedroom retreat. Ensure your retreat space is clutter free.
