If you’re adding a master suite to your home or upgrading what you already have, check out these top features to transform your suite into an in-home sanctuary.
1.) Make your master bedroom feel larger with high ceilings
If you’re working with a smaller space, consider adding high ceilings into the design. Not only do they give the room a certain “wow” factor, but they can make a room feel much larger than it actually is. If you’re lucky, the current architecture of your home may already allow for pitched ceilings.
2.) Use a neutral color palette across your master suite
If you’re dealing with the opposite situation and have a lot of space in your master suite, a neutral color palette is a great way to play on all the extra space and make the room feel even larger but still welcoming. Neutral color palettes can go with any design – above, the whites and taupes paired with striking fabrics like fur in the sitting area enhance a glamorous and romantic design, while the colors can just as easily be transitioned to a vintage farmhouse feel.
3.) Build a walk-in closet with built-in storage space
If you’ve been dreaming of a walk-in closet, make the most of it with a generous amount of built-in storage space. Open shelving can be used to house the items you use most often, while closed drawers and cabinets allow for even more organization and storage. In this closet, we incorporated luxurious accents, like a chandelier, marble countertops, and built-in vanity, to give this walk-in a more upscale feel.
4.) Incorporate plenty of natural light
It should come as no surprise to you that designers love to play with natural light. A few well-placed windows can completely transform a room. Thankfully, those who aren’t able to add more windows still have options on how to maximize the natural light they already have. Mirrors and metallic accents multiply light, while a neutral and bright color palette will help reflect it.
5.) Add vintage touches throughout the space
Charming and old-fashioned, casual and romantic, and quirky and unique all play into the beauty of a room decorated with vintage finds. It’s a style that makes it easy to showcase creativity and individuality, all while paying homage to a simpler time.
6.) Design a show-stopping master bathroom
Just as the master bedroom should be an escape, your master bathroom should be show-stopping. If there’s any space in your master suite you’ll want to pay attention to with the details, it’s this one. The design details of the master bath are what you’ll notice for years to come – the vanity, the countertops, the shower and tub, mirrors, and lighting fixtures all play a crucial role in how the bathroom functions and looks.
