If you’re like most people, you spend between seven and nine hours a day in your bedroom. So, it’s only natural to want to create an attractive, soothing space that sparks joy whenever you walk in the door. If it’s been awhile since you swapped out the decor in this part of the home, it might be time to rethink your design scheme. From upgrading to king size sheets to Egyptian cotton duvet covers, here are our top tips for upgrading a master bedroom.
Incorporate Pops of Color
Switching out your bedroom color scheme adds interest to the space while allowing you to keep up with the latest trends. However, too many bright shades can be overwhelming in an area meant for rest and relaxation. For best results, choose one or two hues you want to highlight and incorporate them in small quantities. For example, you could stick with neutral walls and furniture but add a pop of color in the form of an accent pillow or framed painting. Additionally, bolder designers may opt to paint one wall in a deep shade like navy blue or plum purple while choosing a pastel shade for the other three.
Update Your Sheets
Just because your sheets aren’t immediately visible doesn’t mean they aren’t one of the most essential aspects of your bedroom decor. After all, sheets come into direct contact with the skin, and choosing the wrong material can have a profound effect on your ability to sleep through the night. For best results, choose high-quality bedding made from hand-picked certified Egyptian cotton. Known for its breathability, this material keeps the sleeper cool no matter how high the temperature rises and holds up well even after hundreds of washes.
Wondering what sheet texture best suits your needs? If you love the feeling of silk against your skin, a smooth sateen weave is the way to go. We’re big fans of the Yalda collection, which is available in an array of contemporary colors like icy blue and charcoal. On the other hand, those who appreciate the crisp, and cooling feel of hotel bedding will likely be drawn to Pure Parima’s Ultra Percale Sheet Set. Along with being deliciously cooling, this regal set has a classic design that works well with just about any decor. Sleep like royalty with King or California King sizes.
Swap Out Your Comforter for a Duvet
Many of us grew up sleeping under hot comforters. Fortunately, there’s a better option today from both a comfort and attractiveness perspective. Fluffy and luxurious, duvets have a lightweight feel that helps keep the sleeper cool. And because duvets covers are separate from the duvet, you don’t have to worry about stuffing a thick comforter in the wash or waiting for it to dry. Simply strip off your duvet cover and wash it along with your sheets and pillowcases as needed.
Additionally, duvets make it easy to upgrade your bedding when the mood strikes you. Rather than replacing your expensive comforter, you can just choose a new duvet cover featuring the latest colors or patterns. We’re fond of the Yalda Duvet Cover set, which is made with hand-picked Egyptian cotton fibers and double hem stitching. Match your duvet cover to your sheets or try a complementary shade to give your room a fresh look and feel.
Go for the Layered Look
Hotel bedding is widely regarded as ultra luxurious. Fortunately, you can create that style at home by opting for the layered look. The most sumptuous beds feature multiple articles of bedding, including sheets, a duvet with duvet cover, and a throw blanket at the bottom. You can snuggle up under the covers on cold nights or toss the throw over your legs for a brief afternoon nap. For extra coziness, include a mix of different-sized accent pillows featuring various fabrics. We’re especially fond of velvet!
Choose a New Headboard
A finishing touch on any bed, headboards are both functional and beautiful. The good news is you can find these items of decor in a wide range of styles and colors. While some decorators prefer wooden headboards, others opt for softer fabric pieces that are great for reading in bed. You can also purchase a bed that comes with a headboard or choose to buy the pieces separately. At once elegant and dramatic, headboards can add serious impact while giving your room a “completed” quality.
