With A Few Tips You Can Turn a Regular Bedroom Into A Retreat 4 comments

Turn a Regular Bedroom Into a Retreat Fit for a Queen

A home may be a man’s castle, but the master suite is a woman’s retreat. It’s where we can escape from the hectic day and everyone else’s demands. The bedroom is where we get our beauty sleep, cultivate our wardrobe collection and get ready to take on the day.

If your bedroom needs the royal treatment, try the tricks below to transform a regular space into a boudoir fit for a queen. Turn A Regular Bedroom Into a Retreat With Luxury Bedding

Super Luxurious Bedding

The one must in any bedroom is a comfortable place to sleep. It all starts with high-quality bedding sets. This is what your skin will come in direct contact with so keep the material as well as potential toxins in mind. The thread count is also a top consideration. The higher the count the softer the sheets will be.

Next comes all the bedding on the surface that helps define the style of the room. Soft colors in a satin finish scream that a queen sleeps there. And as fun as decorative pillows may be, make sure you have at least one pillow that provides adequate support for sleep.

Plush Textures

From the furniture to floor coverings, plush materials are a girl’s favorite for the bedroom. Think faux fur, merino wool, cashmere and suede. Anything that’s super soft to the touch and you can just sink into is a plush material worthy of a queen’s bedroom.

Texture is a design element that often gets overlooked, but it can add so much character to a room. Plush textures will lend softness to the room and immediately exude a comfortable, feminine vibe.

Attractive, Functional Vanity

Bedroom vanities are making a huge comeback right now, particularly in homes that only have one bathroom. Even queens have to deal with a single sink in high-cost areas like New York City and Southern California.

A makeup mirror with lights around it will provide the space you need to get ready for work or a date without blocking the sink. You’ll also be able to sit and relax while you beautify your face, and there’s a lot more room to spread out. Take a page right out of Marie Antoinette’s book and get yourself an ornate vanity that’s just as attractive as it is functional.

A Little Bit of Bling

Every pair of jeans you own may not be bedazzled, but every queen likes a little bit of bling in the bedroom. If you want just a hint of glitz, use glass for design elements like knobs and handles. It’s a shiny, reflective surface but much more toned down than metallic materials.

Want to make bling a centerpiece? Then add a chandelier. There’s no quicker way to make a bedroom feel more luxurious than hanging a grand chandelier in the center of the ceiling.

A Grand Mirror

As the fairytale Snow White shows, queens can never have too many mirrors. Even if you have a mirror on your vanity a framed, full-length mirror can bring a touch of drama to the room. Not to mention, queens need to be put together from head to toe, which means a full-length mirror is a necessity. Go all out with an oversized mirror that has an ornate or blinged out frame.

Fresh Cut Flowers

There’s a reason men give women beautiful bouquets – because we adore fresh cut flowers. But a vase full of flowers isn’t just beautiful to look at. They bring life to a room and can provide emotional benefits that help a queen manage her kingdom. Harvard researchers found that fresh cut flowers decrease anxiety and increase compassion in women.

To keep your beautiful bedroom bouquet looking its best add a preservative to the water and keep them away from hot spots.

Add Ornate Trim

The decorative trim that elevates a bedroom from plain to visually interesting is much easier to incorporate than you’d think. Crown molding products that are pre-cut in the corners are extremely easy to install with just a nail gun and handsaw. If that’s a little too much heavy lifting there’s also peel-and-stick crown molding options.

Don’t forget the baseboard as well as the trim around the doors and windows. A tall baseboard that’s around a foot high adds a subtle touch of opulence to the room.

    Karren, I love this post. Great ideas all. I have a particular appreciation for crown moulding, but somehow the master bedroom was the last room in the house to get it. And it made such a tremendous difference, I was kicking myself for not doing it (well, let’s get real, *getting* it done!) sooner.

    Love your tips! The real luxury is in the details, right? A glittering handle, a unique little pillow, or a textured rug can make such a statement. I’ve got to be on the lookout for some of these for my own room now! Thanks for the inspiration.
