It has been said that the first room to be overlooked and the last to get decorated is the master bedroom and en-suite. While it may take months of finding the right décor to finish off a room, there are a few steps you can take while building your home to ensure that the spa-like getaway you crave is close to ready on possession day. Check out the tips below on how to create a relaxing bedroom retreat!
Dark & Cozy
Bedrooms are a place of escape at the end of a long day, so why not create a dark and cozy space to drift off to sleep in? Choose a medium to dark paint color for your walls, and heavier blackout curtains to create the perfect sleep environment. If you don’t want to commit to painting all the walls a deep color, think about creating a feature wall instead (typically the wall your bed will be touching). Plush carpet with a thick underlay will feel luxurious underfoot, while also help extend the life of your flooring and add to the resale value of your home.
Light & Bright
On the opposite end of the spectrum, nothing signals spa retreat like a bright, white & airy en-suite. Selecting lighter toned finishes, such as tile floors & paint, will create a soothing space. Over-sized windows add the perfect touch of natural light and can make rooms appear larger than they are.
To create a relaxing bedroom retreat, stick to soft furnishings; think layers of cozy bedding, crisp sheets, and lamps with a soft glow. Fresh flowers on the bedside table are an unexpected nice touch. Bathrooms stocked with fluffed & folded white towels, bathrobes, and scented candles will rival any high-end spa. Don’t forget the cucumber water if you want to go all out!
