There’s something about the colder weather that makes us want to cuddle in bed and stay there till the first flower blooms. A comfortable, warm, inviting master bedroom can seem to melt away all the stress of the day. Adversely, if you have a less than inviting master bedroom, it can pile that stress on and make you restless, and unable to truly relax and fall asleep. When you’re tired, it can become a vicious circle of unhealthy choices, compacting until it all catches up with you. Is a master bedroom really that important to your overall health? YES!


IMG 22291 150x150 - Designing Your Master BedroomYou’ve spent the time to redo your kitchen, or bathroom, maybe other rooms in your home, but your master bedroom needs the most attention; it’s where you relax; it should be exactly what you want and need.


The color scheme of your bedroom is one of the most important parts of the design process. The colors you choose for your walls, furniture, décor, and flooring can dictate how relaxed (or stressed out) your slumber will be. Choose colors that settle and relax you like green, blue, or those in the tan or grey family (like greige). You can take these colors from contemporary to rustic. The grey gives the color you choose a bit more depth and mutes any incoming light (from street lights, etc).


If you want to go with an accent wall, try to position it so the back of your bed is flush with that wall. That way, it doesn’t interrupt your senses and plays of the sunlight streaming in during the day. Avoid yellow or red in accents or décor. If you want drama, add white or black accents to offset the wall color. If you don’t know what colors to choose for your room, think about the colors that make you feel relaxed or that you are drawn to. Our designers will help you make the right choice in room colors that accent the flooring best.

The flooring is just as important as the wall color in achieving the ultimate stress-free zone. Hardwood floors in rich colors will warm up the room in the winter months and add depth in warmer IMG_1475months. If you choose carpet, go with a lush that feels good underfoot. Don’t be afraid to go with darker, richer beige or even a pattern to give it a more luxurious look.


Whether you choose the floors or the wall colors first, be sure to put them together to make sure the colors complement one another well. You can always change your sheets or accent pieces; flooring or paint is a much more expensive change.
