How to layout your master bedroom

It sounds simple enough, what more do you need in your bedroom besides the bed? But a master bedroom can be as complicated to set-up as a living room or dinning room mainly because there’s a giant bed somewhere in the room. So what goes around it and on the walls? Here’s some simple tips:

Placing the bed:



Deal with the bed firsts. It’s the giant elephant in the room, so to speak, so put the head of the bed on the wall opposite the bedroom’s entrance.

Don’t worry if that means the headboard is in front of the windows - the positioning is more important than “blocking a window” This can also help avoid a common problem, having the side of the bed create a visual barrier in the room.

Put your priorities first:



Remember, this is your retreat the place you come to unwind so what’s the best view? Do you need to look out the window or do you prefer to watch some TV at the end of the day. What’s the last thing you want to see or hear before you drift off at the end of a busy day?

For a while placing the bed on the angle in a room was all the rage. While it can help in a smaller space to make it look larger it’s not a good idea for a master suite. You also don’t want to have one side of your bed up against a wall. Too tough to make the bed and tuck in the sheets.

Leave room for night stands:

When picking the nightstand make sure it’s the same height as the bed when fully assembled and maid up with all pillows & comforters. You’d be surprised how much higher a bed can be with linens.

Use your nightstand as a creative way to add color, dimension and texture to the room. They don’t have to match and in many cases the room has more unique appeal when they don’t. This is a great way to blend in some style!

Lighting:



Lamps are the most flexible in terms of how much light is used to set the mood and an easy way to change up the feel of the room without buying new furniture.

Traffic and seating areas:

Just because you have a “big room” doesn’t mean you have to get a king size bed. Make sure you have room for the night stands, they need room around them as well. Bigger isn’t always better in the bedroom.

Place your bed so you have space for a small sitting area. You only need approximately 4’ x 4’ for an additional chair and table but it makes the room appear to be much larger and adds additional color and texture to the room.
