Your Haven From the Outside World
Simply put, a bedroom is a space in which you can take refuge from the rat race, rest and reinvigorate yourself. It can be a small and utilitarian niche, a grand suite of rooms, or anything in between. It depends upon the size of two things: your home and your budget. Of little importance is the size of your bedroom, it has to provide just one purpose. It has to provide for you a comfortable place to sleep – everything else is just icing on the cake.
And sleeping comfortably, of course, starts with the bed.
Choosing a Bed
Beds come in a number of sizes and configurations. Bigger rooms can comfortably fit a Queen or a King sized bed; smaller areas a single or a full sized bed. You can opt to have just a frame to comfortably fit the mattress and box spring, you can opt to have a headboard, or you can opt to have a headboard and footboard. Beds can be elaborate and ornate, or basic and functional.
Beds are made to match any design theme you can envision, so let your creative side emerge when designing your bedroom. But keep in mind that you must budget yourself strictly so that you can be prepared for the single most essential purchase for your comfort: the mattress.
The Importance of the Mattress
The comfort of the bed is all about the mattress. Picking a mattress is a tough difficult decision, because there are dozens of brands to pick from, and a bewildering array of styles and characteristics. You ought to pick the right firmness; you must take durability into account; and, of course, you must be aware of the impact on your budget. In the long run, however, that you should be diligently careful about selecting the right mattress.
All bedrooms, even the smallest, should have a closet. If you are lucky enough to live in a home that is spacious enough, you may have a walk-in closet with plenty of area for storage. Even the smallest closets can be arranged to greatly increase storage space by using one of the many “closet systems” to be had.
The Proper Bedroom Décor
The master bedroom fulfills its purpose when it is restful and well-planned, and that involves selecting the right paint shades and/or textures for the walls and the window coverings. You can pick any style from French to art deco, but take care that your selections are soft and understated. All elements of the room should be conducive to a good night’s sleep.
Consider a Master Bath
If you are considering a complete remodeling job and increasing the size of your home, think about installing a master bath. A personal bathroom inside the master bedroom suite might add much value to your home as well as provide for you a lifetime of convenience and comfort.
