Your master bedroom is the most substantial bedroom inside the house or apartment. Often, it comes with an en-suite bathroom and ideally, there will be as much natural light as you can get because if your master bedroom does not look or feel comfortable and spacious, it can affect you mentally and emotionally. The one place you’re meant to be relaxing and healing from the outside world can internally cause stress, so give yourself a fresh start by revamping your master bedroom into one that makes you feel in happier and in control.
There are three ways you can go about it, at drastically different price points. There is an upgrade for everyone:
Declutter and organise
If you are not keen on spending too much, you can try to declutter. Even if you do not have an overwhelming number of personal items, a neglected space always has trash and unnecessary things so do a thorough clean. Old receipts, bills, and brochures should make their way to the garbage.
After you have taken care of the mess, organise what you have left. Clothes should be kept in an order that makes sense for your daily life, and avoid committing to colour coding or outfit planning if you cannot maintain it every day. Purge your bedside table of any work-related documents, and keep that space reserved for activities you enjoy, like recreational reading.
The final form of your space depends on how much work you do. If you focus on cleaning and keep the furniture as is, you will give yourself breathing room. Organising your things and moving furniture can make you feel like you are in a different environment. Intentionally curating your space, so you move about it differently, can be refreshing and break away from your previous monotonous routine.
Change of furniture, change of pace
If you have the money to spare, invest in furniture you need or upgrade your current items; your purchases do not need to be brand new, just new to you. First, address any areas of concern you have been ignoring like having an overflowing closet, using an extra chair as a table or keeping a plastic bag by your bed for trash. Go out and get the items you need. Second, if you do not lack anything, you might want to improve what you have. Improvement can be selecting something that works or looks better—it depends on your end goal. New functional pieces can significantly improve how you move around your room so do away with the worries about keeping a failing system in place. Aesthetically pleasing items, on the other hand, can anchor your room and make it a more cohesive space.
Slow and steady renovation
When you are staying long term in a house or apartment, your home should have a long-term plan as well. You can take away dated design aspects of your master bedroom like some old wallpaper and carpet, and look for some luxury vinyl flooring for example to create a modern set up. Add a fresh coat of paint or select some wallpaper you like better to give new life to your bedroom walls or you can also upgrade any lighting or hardware fixtures. The renovation can take days to months, depending on what you are changing. However, the final result will surely speak for itself.
Give yourself the master bedroom you deserve.
