The master bedroom is your retreat. It’s where you go to rest and recharge, to relax and let go of the stress of the day. You may not realize it, but your master suite’s design can impact your mood (and your sleep) more than you think, which is why expertly crafting this space is key. You want this space to serve as a respite from the hustle and bustle of the rest of home and taking steps to ensure maximum relaxation in this room will make a big difference. From replenishing vibes to modern flair, the master bedroom has been undergoing a transformation for years now, and if you’re looking to revamp this space, you’re not alone. Here is our master bedroom guide of the top trends to embrace.

Relaxation Above All Else

This is the space in your home where you will rest and destress, so it makes sense to create a calming ambiance in this room. Whether you’re building a brand-new home or you’re just looking to make a few tweaks to the existing space, you’ll want to prioritize relaxation. From soft, cushiony surfaces to light, bright and airy color palettes, elegant bedding and plenty of natural light, the master suite can easily be upgraded to a charming oasis. Minimal clutter and plush décor make this space ideal for letting go of the worries of the day, allowing you to sink into a feeling of relaxation.

Seating Throughout

You’ll also want to incorporate multiple seating areas in the room for maximum comfort, if possible. This way, you’re not just limited to the bed when you want to have some quiet time alone to relax and reflect on the day. Plush couches, cushioned chairs and other cozy areas to lounge throughout will allow you to view this room as more than just a place to sleep, but as your own personal retreat.

Open Space

You don’t want to feel cramped in the master suite, which means that opening up this space as best as you can is important. Many homebuilders opt for high ceilings and large expanses of windows to provide an airy ambiance that facilitates relaxation. You may also want to choose concealed cabinetry and storage areas to limit clutter and make the space feel more open.

High Quality

Skimping on quality can result in a less relaxed (and less comfortable) feeling in the space. That’s why many designers recommend quality over quantity in the master bedroom. Consider incorporating the following into the space:

  • High thread-count sheets
  • Handcrafted furniture
  • Sturdy area rugs
  • Customizable/dimmable lighting
  • Wall décor & artwork
  • Natural elements, like real plants

In amplifying the quality of this space, you’ll most likely want to spend time in this room more often, thus resulting in a better mood and better rest.

Your Master Bedroom Suite

The master suite is a special place in the home and when you design it to meet your specific needs, you’ll find that it is more than just a place to sleep. So, remember these tips and consider making this space a relaxing getaway from the busy atmosphere of other areas of the home, like the kitchen and living areas. When it comes to ultimate renewal and replenishment, no other area of the home can deliver this quite like the master bedroom, so design it with revitalization in mind.
