Master Bedroom Decorating Ideas

You're always doing a lot for others. Now is the time to consider doing something for yourself. Why not create a space that’s all yours? The Master Bedroom is a place that’s made for rest, but you can also transform it into a personal oasis, away from the regular hustle and bustle of your home. Here are a few tips for decorating your master bedroom. These trends are current, but classic and can be used now and in the future.

Master Bedroom Colours

When picking the colours for your room, choose ones that you love and can use throughout the space. This goes for everything from furniture to wall colour to blankets and pillows. White is a timeless choice that calms and relaxes. White has the benefit of being styled with any colour, although pastel accents of blue, green, pink or brown are contemporary choices. 

If you don’t have the time to add colour by painting, consider an accent wall of wallpaper. Wallpaper has been staging a comeback for several years now, and it is different than what used to be in your grandma’s den. Amazing modern patterns are available that balance your rooms colour scheme. For example, the wall behind your bed could have a bold pattern, balanced by a solid headboard that picks up on one of the colours in the paper. For an even more dramatic choice, choose a metallic wallpaper.

Bedroom Design

Design your bedroom as a single-purpose space for resting and relaxing. Avoid using your bedroom as an extra home office, work out, or family play space. Busy parents need all the sleep they can get, so avoid cramming too many extraneous items in your bedroom, as your sleep can suffer. 

You want the design of your restful space to be as uncluttered as possible. Having an overflowing closet isn’t going to help create that refuge that you’re looking for, so invest in a great wardrobe system. If you don’t have that space, consider the uncluttered look of under-bed storage. This can either be built into your bed unit or you can buy convenient rolling bins. Either way, you’ll be keeping your room neat and tidy, which will enhance the relaxation that this room needs.


Adding luxurious textiles to your bed is going to give your master bedroom a tactile style that will make you want to sink into it. Try buying touchable bedding that has softness and comfort, like thick and fluffy blankets and euro shams. 

Texture can also be added in other areas of the bedroom, like the window treatments or headboard. Curtains will not only add a look of warmth, but also add actual warmth to the bedroom by keeping cooler air from entering the room in the winter. They can also add to the room by helping keep out sleep disrupting light.

Design Ideas On a Budget?

If you can’t afford a total overhaul of your master bedroom, try these inexpensive decorating ideas to update the look of your room. A wall decal is a great way to add a splash of colour that isn’t as permanent as wallpaper or paint. Upgrading the hardware on your furniture can give your pieces a completely different look. Changing out a light fixture can also be the upgrade that you need without too much cost. DIY projects are also a must, especially on larger pieces like furniture. By using a little sandpaper, elbow grease, and paint, the furniture you already own or interesting thrift items can be tranformed, while saving you a lot of money.

At the end of the day, make sure your bedroom is a place you feel comfortable. You don’t mind if the kids hop in for a snuggle on a lazy Saturday morning, but you also want to know it’s your private space where you can let go of a long day.
