Tips for Enhancing Your Master Retreat


_960

6614 Brookshire Drive | Preston Hollow

 

A home is an ever-evolving project. As our styles change and years go by, it’s easy to get the itch to update your home. Buyers and sellers alike often pay more attention to kitchens, master bathrooms, closets and outdoor spaces than they do to the vital space where they will usually spend more than a third of their 24 hours each day. If you’re looking for a change or wanting to fall back in love with your master bedroom, follow these tips.

 

Choice Spot

The bed should be set away from the room’s entrance to keep it out of the main circulation path. Place it in a spot so occupants can enjoy the best view — whether that’s inside (maybe toward a fireplace or favorite piece of art) or outdoors (with views of trees or water where possible). Personalize it by pairing the bed with a headboard and dressing it up with decorative pillows, a duvet and a throw.

 

Window Treatments

Minimal is the design mantra when it comes to much of the standard room décor today. But while no coverings in some rooms, such as kitchens and living rooms, allows for more light and views, some amount of treatment in a bedroom is needed to block outside light and provide privacy – think shutters, electric shades or curtains.

 

Right Lighting

Installing recessed cans is discouraged. They tend to chop up a ceiling and aren’t too attractive to look at while in bed. Task lighting from lamps on night tables or wall-mounted sconces are preferred.

 

Conceal or Banish Electronics

For years, scientists and health professionals have known about the danger of the blue light that comes from certain electronic equipment and how it adversely affects melatonin production. Homeowners might consider making the master bedroom an electronics-free zone, without TVs and other technology to help train the brain that the bedroom is primarily a place to sleep rather than stay awake.

 

Soothing Palette

Colors that are less bold are more restful. A palette of pale blues, greens, beiges, grays and whites create a calming environment. In addition, bedding in white and light creams make for a soothing sight to the eye.

 

Creature Comforts

If the room’s size allows, consider adding a chaise, chair and ottoman, and night tables. Also, a large area rug or wall-to-wall carpeting can help deaden noise and provide warmth underfoot. If the room is located so it opens directly to the outdoors, play this up. Real access to idyllic scenery can contribute to a sense of tranquility.
