How to Create Your Own Master Suite
Your home is a sanctuary, but you still deserve to have a personal oasis within your four walls. If you want to make some upgrades to your house this year, why not finally build a dream space for yourself? In just a few easy steps, you can turn your bedroom and bathroom into a private master suite. Read on to find out how.Must-Have Features for Your Bedroom
Regardless of how much time you spend in your bedroom, you want to relax in it and enjoy a good night’s rest. Include these must-haves as you create your master suite.Create an En Suite
Where space allows, add an en suite to your bedroom. En suites can be either lounging areas or smaller bathrooms attached to a bedroom. For your master suite design, however, you’ll likely want to build an en suite that acts as a sitting room.
Add comfortable couches and chairs for relaxing or entertaining familiar visitors. Or create a reading nook or small hobby area. Separate the en suite from the rest of your room with a sliding barn door complete with frosted glass inlay.Replace the Windows
Whether you live in an older home or a newer abode, you should replace certain features every so often. Windows, especially, work less effectively the longer they’ve been in use. So why not use your master suite remodel as an opportunity to make some larger changes?
New windows make the space more energy efficient, let in more natural light, and give you a blank slate to accessorize. Once your new windows have been installed, hang custom window treatments that accentuate the glass’s natural beauty.Paint the Walls
Color your walls any tint or shade you like. If it fits your personality and matches the theme and decor of your room, you can use whatever color you prefer.
Can’t decide on a color? Paint swatches of different colors you like along your walls. You may have an easier time choosing a color if you can see it firsthand. Just keep in mind that light neutral colors open up the room and make it look brighter, cool colors (like blue) keep you calmer, and warm colors (like burnt orange) can irritate you.Essential Elements for Your Bathroom
Want to soak in the tub or enjoy a much-needed spa day after a long week? These essential features will help you create the perfect space.Swap Out the Tub
Why settle for a standard tub in your bathroom? During your renovations, swap out your current tub for a larger, longer one. Or, if you want the space to feel extra luxurious and you have the funds, install a glass shower next to a jetted tub.Create a Larger Space With Mirrors
Hang mirrors throughout the space to let in more natural light. Or, you can hang a full-length mirror on a sidewall of the bathroom and a traditional mirror above the sink. If you want your bathroom to stand out, create a mirror wall or install a mirror that hangs above the sink and runs from corner to corner of the wall to make a statement.Upgrade the Lighting
While mirrors do a great job reflecting more natural light into your bathroom, you may want to dim the lights occasionally. Instead of leaving a large overhead light in this room, swap the fixture out for a smaller light and add accent lighting throughout the space. You can also install a dimmer switch to help you create whatever environment you find most invigorating.
With the tips listed above, you can finally create a master suite you can’t wait to relax in. Want to make a few other upgrades to your home? Check out our previous blog post 6 Ways to Transform Your Home With Custom Mirrors.
