Is your master bedroom a private sanctuary -a place that is entirely your own? Aside from maybe the kitchen which tends to be the heart of the home, your master bedroom, more than any other place, is your personal retreat where you go to rest, relax and recharge. If you have decided that it’s time to remodel your master bedroom – and if you have the budget available – here are some ideas to make it comfortable, beautiful and even luxurious.
A great way to add luxury and resale value is to add or expand a master bathroom. Master baths take many forms and you have the freedom to experiment. Consider putting the sinks outside the bathroom proper- giving you more room to wash and put on makeup- this can give you a spa-like feel. You might want to have both a shower and a bathtub instead of choosing one or the other. Why limit yourself?
If you have the room- build a walk-in closet. Why should you have to rummage about in a cramped, dark closet? Why should your beautiful clothes have to be pressed up against each other, risking wrinkles? Dream a little, doodle your plans on the nearest piece of paper, and go to town! Don’t be afraid to insert a little drama- chandeliers in the closet are fun! Soon you will have a roomy, pleasant walk-in closet that will be a dream to organize and use.
Make your own personalized headboard. While your contractor is busy with the bigger stuff, you can enjoy this simple carpentry project on your own or with a loved one. You can make your design simple or complex; you can keep the wood bare or pad it for extra comfort. If you’re looking for something more sophisticated then you may need to employ the help of your carpenter. Not only will it look fabulous but you can enjoy your new headboard whether you’re reading a good book or enjoying your favorite film.
Redo the décor. Update the color scheme of your master bedroom with new colors and patterns, pillows, bedding, bedspreads and blankets. Surround yourself with your favorite colors and textures so that you can feel the effects of your comfortable, private sanctuary even while you sleep.
If you’re really feeling adventurous – add a balcony. Does your bedroom face the water, overlook the mountains, or look out over a rolling farm view that just plain touches your soul? Consider adding a balcony with sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling curtains that fit your chosen color scheme. If you’re fortunate enough to have your home facing in the right direction you may view the gorgeous sunrise or colors of sunset from the privacy and comfort of your luxurious master bedroom.
