To achieve a 5 star luxury master bedroom doesn’t necessary need major décor investment. It involves more of “setting the mood” and less about spending too much money. It only takes a few tweaks to upgrade your bedroom into the ultimate feeling of luxury and sophistication. If you are feeling inspired after a holiday or a weekend vacation and crave a make-over, switching up a few elements can get you your dreamy bedroom. From light fixtures to art pieces, below are few tips on turning up the luxury factor in your master bedroom.
Capture that timeless signature luxury that most hotel design possesses by simply changing your wall colour. We can all admit that selecting the right wall colour creates a calm, soothing and relaxed atmosphere and greatly affect our mood. Cooler hues such as shades of gray, sea glass blue, heather lavender and fern green lend a hand in making your space seem more expensive and have shown to reduce stress and anxiety. Bedding, throw pillows and other accessories in complementing colours can make your master bedroom appear opulent and elegant. Alternatively, white and black or white and gray allows you the freedom to have fun and bring in details and accents while giving an illusion of an already tidy and put-together space.
Hotels, whether big or small, are always well-organized and free of clutter. Keeping your master bedroom mess-free and orderly instantly makes it look luxurious. It is important to know the difference between good and bad clutter. Good clutter is stacks of books and collections perfectly displayed on shelves and having a few pieces of art on or against the wall. Put things away from plain sight by making the most of hidden spaces. If your budget allows, consider hiring a closet organizer or purchase a closet organizing system. Everything has its place and a purpose when carefully organized.
The hallmark of sophistication and luxury living is top-of-the-line bedding fit for a queen or king. Invest in the highest thread count sheets that you can afford which will give the bed a smoother texture and help you sleep well. Top the bed with a lovely comforter featuring fabrics such as brocade, damask, silk or velvet. If you’re looking to go one step further, style the bed with accent pillows in a variety of textures to complete the bedding with additional opulence. Pillows that you sleep on at night should sit beneath decorative throw pillows.
Window curtains definitely fall into the little things that we often forget but ultimately make a huge difference when it comes to elevating your master bedroom interior style. It’s easy to settle for cheap pre-made curtains since custom drapes can be a bit too costly. Find a seamstress to work within your budget and pick fabrics to match your taste and the rest of your décor. Luxurious hotel rooms are usually spacious, so opt for longer curtains to give the illusion of greater height.
A hotel is always well-lit to help you ease into a long, uninterrupted sleep. Rethink your master bedroom lighting to achieve the same results. Add a beautiful statement piece above the bed to emphasize it as the focal point of the room – such as a glamorous overhead chandelier or pendant light that speak to your décor and you can use for ambient lighting. Invest in some light dimmers or bedside lamps to create a cozy ambience. Lights over your artwork add a great touch of glamour. A minimum of three different lighting sources for your room does the trick.
Bringing nature in is the simplest and quickest way to upgrade your master bedroom into a hotel-like room. Perhaps a large fern in the corner or a small potted plant placed on top of few selected fashion or décor magazines. A vase filled with roses brings a touch of life and a subtle fragrance into your room. Flowers and plants are elegant, gorgeous and they are a sure-fire way to luxe-up your decor.
Your master bedroom should be a haven of sorts; a place where you can fully express yourself and define your personal style and taste. A statement mirror, a photo gallery or a piece of art is a fantastic way to create a sense of artistry on the wall. Boutique hotels are known for dramatic proportions and placement of accessories on the wall to add interest and emphasize the focal point of the room. Make use of the empty space above the bed frame by adding an attractive feature.
If space permits a fantastic upholstered chair with an occasional table in-between sets the stage for a reading and television nook or a place to rest without necessarily lying down in bed. Provide extra cushions for instant class and choose fabrics that complement the color scheme and a style that suits your room’s theme. A lovely bench at the end of the bed is yet another perfect way to add that hotel like feel in your master bedroom. Place a mirrored tray with your jewelry and watches for that extra sparkle and chic-elegance.
If you're lucky enough to have a bathroom attached to your master bedroom, style it in such a way that the two complement each other. It should almost feel like an extension of the bedroom. Select a colour palette and theme that you have already worked with in the master bedroom. If you have money to spend, a glass-enclosed walk-in shower and an impressive shower head would be great. A beautifully displayed tray with lavish offerings of soaps, scents, candles and flowers add instant elegance to the space. Add large mirrors and lots of lights for that wow factor, and don’t forget those towels and bathrobe made of supreme-quality cotton for a more expensive and look.
