5 Finishing Touches for Your Master Bedroom

5 Finishing Touches for Your Master Bedroom

Your master bedroom needs to be a place where you can retreat from the rest of the world. But it should also be a place where you can express yourself in the tiny details. Nothing makes a room feel complete than the special touches that finish it off. Here are 5 finishing touches for you master bedroom that will complete the look and pull your ideas together.

1. Art
A bedroom with blank walls can feel bleak and incomplete, but before you go out and buy hundreds or even thousands of dollars’ worth of artwork, remember, art can be anything that is special to you. Maybe a handmade blanket made by your great-grandmother to hang over your bed or frame family pictures and make a memory wall. Sprinkle in a few canvasses here and there and break up the bareness of the walls.

2. Knick Knacks
These are the things that reflect you personally. Perhaps you are really into photography, so set out your vintage camera collection or pop down a few big coffee-table style books on your favorite photographer. Maybe you love to travel and have brought some gorgeous textiles or pottery back from distant lands, or it might just be some pretty rocks or shells from your beach holiday. All of these little things can brighten up your bedroom and make it feel like you. Invest in an accent piece or two to help properly display your items.

3. Lighting
A bedroom should have various light sources: table lamps on the nightstand, floor lamps, wall lights, and even candles can add some ambience to your room. If you have a seating area, consider a reading lamp that is dimmable, so you can signal your body to calm down closer to bedtime. The bedroom is the one place you don’t want to solely rely on the overhead light source.

4. Curtains
Textiles over your window will soften hard angles and make the room feel cozy. Curtains should be hung as high as possible and hang all the way to the floor. If you can’t use full-length curtains, consider Roman blinds or window shutters instead.

5. Area Rugs
You don’t want to get out of bed each morning and put your feet on a cold floor. Scattering area rugs throughout your room with help warm things up, literally and decoratively. A rug on either side of the bed protects your toes, a small rug in the seating area helps make a zone, and a runner at the foot of your bed can help protect your floor from a high traffic area. Even if you have low-pile carpet, layering rugs on top will add color and texture to your scheme.

These little touches will go a long way to completing the look in your master bedroom. Even if you are only able to accomplish a few on the list, you’ll notice your bedroom will cozy up instantly!
