If your master suite is feeling tired, it’s time for an update! This is supposed to be a sanctuary from your busy everyday schedule. It’s the one place in your home where you should feel relaxed and refreshed. We have a few ideas that can make a big difference in your master bedroom, bathroom, and closets.
Closet lighting should be bright enough for you to tell navy clothes from black, and you sometimes want to have bright light in the bathroom. But much of the time, you want your master suite lighting to be soft, or at least adjustable. We can build cove lighting into ledges, recesses, or valances so that the fixtures disappear and you can dim or brighten the light to give your room exactly the right glow. Chandeliers and sconces can add extra drama. If more natural light is desired, consider floor-to-ceiling windows or even French doors that open to a patio or balcony.
Breakfast in bed.
Cabinets that blend in with your bedroom decor can conceal a microwave, refrigerator and even a small dishwasher-in-a-drawer. Enjoying a head start to busy days is easy with a single-serve coffeemaker right there as soon as you open your eyes. On lazy mornings, indulge in a luxurious breakfast without even leaving your room. For cozy evening retreats, add a wine cooler and stock up your own personal mini-bar!
Entertain your options.
If you want your master suite to be where you can spend more leisure time, so you’ll want entertainment electronics at your disposal. A flat screen television, Bluetooth speakers and a music docking station are must-have features in a master suite’s design. Custom cabinetry can house outlets for charging devices, control multi-media wiring, and even conceal your technology behind doors, when you want to get away from it all.
Let it flow.
One of the newest trends is to open up the master suite and eliminate the door between the bedroom and bathroom. This creates a luxurious sense of space. If you’d like more privacy, a separate commode room can be added, as well as pocket doors or sliding panels that can be opened or closed, as desired, to separate the bath from the bedroom.
Put your feet up.
Think outside the box of a typical bedroom and you can find room for an alcove or corner in your master suite to serve as your sitting room or study. A couple of small upholstered chairs and ottomans or a comfy chaise lounge with a side table make the perfect spot for your late night or early morning reading with your feet up and a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
These ideas are just the start. If you’re thinking of upgrading, call us! We’d love to share many more simple little touches that can wake up your space and make you feel pampered and refreshed every day of the year!
