Simple Bedroom Decorating Ideas

May 2, 2008
We all enjoy our bedroom and it is true to say that we all secretly yearn for a nicer bedroom, one that is more than just a place to sleep so remodeling the master bedroom can be very rewarding. As the bedroom has become a place for other functions besides sleeping, like reading or relaxing for example, many people have seen the advantages of making this a special place in the home. Some Europeans believe the bedroom should be a place where a sensual atmosphere is the one to aim for and this approach is gradually being adopted by Americans as well.

The main aspect of change if you remodel your master bedroom in to a more sensual place is the color scheme and you can achieve this by using shades of red, cream and peach. Candles are also useful but they need mirrors to enhance the reflections or you can add plants which will also provide the same effect. More people prefer the master bedroom to be a place where they can relax with a good book whether on the bed or in a comfy chair placed near the bed or a window to provide views.

With a bedroom, subtle lighting is preferable to a single harsh light because it doesn't enhance the feel of the room at all whereas many soft lights are more inviting and relaxing. Traditionally to achieve the best effect in a room for reading in you should look towards the softer shades of ivory, amber and slate blue. When you are remodeling you master bedroom to create a room which is more like a retreat, then beautiful throws, cushions (or pillows) and mirrors will achieve the desired look.

If your sanctuary is also a place where you intend to read then the addition of a comfortable chair and a reading lamp will be a simple matter. Of course when remodeling your master bedroom this way, pictures of your family (preferably in antique brass frames) should be placed around the room to provide a sanctuary like feeling. The most comfortable colors for a sanctuary style room are darker shades like chocolate brown, deep greens and cobalt blues which help make the room feel cozy.

Often people who like to read also enjoy writing and a small bureau can be extremely effective as can something to listen to your favorite music on but obviously this depends on the space you have available. It is not uncommon to place concealed fridges either in addition to tea or coffee making facilities which almost provide the feel of a quality hotel suite. If you have a busy home then remodeling your bedroom into a place where you can disappear for a while to enjoy some peace and relaxation is not such a bad idea.
