Top 3 Finishing Touches for Your Master Bedroom

Many of us will spend a significant portion of our lives in the bedroom. Granted, we’ll be sleeping for most of it, but your bedroom is oh so much more than just a place to get a few Zs. Yet, it’s amazing how many people neglect bedroom decor when they think about decorating their homes. You will rationalize, if I only sleep there, what does it matter what the room looks like…?

But it does! For many of us, the bedroom is the one place where we can unwind and relax after a manic day at the office and rushing around. When you close the door, you should leave all your worries outside and let go. However, we don’t think about that the way we decorate our bedroom can help or hurt how well we sleep. That’s why it’s essential to put in a little extra effort to make your master bedroom as attractive and comfortable as possible.

In this article, we’ll look at the top three finishing touches to enhance your main bedroom and make it the perfect place to unwind.

Sleep in Luxurious Comfort

You can have the most beautiful bedroom and still miss out on getting quality sleep because of an uncomfortable bed for example. Getting a comfortable and durable mattress should be considered a priority and a valuable investment. Something worthy to spend your money on.

Why? Well, a poor mattress can cause restless sleep, as well as painful joints, and body aches, resulting in an unpleasant and unproductive day. Unfortunately, the main problem is that most people aren’t sure what to look for in a good quality mattress.

Everything from your sleeping position to bedtime habits can influence the type of mattress you need. You’ll need to consider firmness, material, durability, and support. There are also external factors to consider. Even the temperature of your room can impact your sleep. For example, keeping your room cooler can help you enjoy a deeper, more restful slumber. However, it’s not always easy to keep your body cool or to keep the room temperature comfortable throughout the night. According to, you can get a mattress that helps your body stay cool throughout the night instead.

If you have any type of bed frame or headboard, try giving it a good clean and repair any damage. Torn or worn-out bedding or sheets should be thrown away or, better yet, donated. Investing in quality linens, decorative cushions, and soft blankets are a sure way to give your room style and personality and make you feel happy and comfortable in the space.

Colors and Lights to Set the Mood

Did you know that colors can affect our moods, feelings, and behavior? For example, shades of red usually evoke thoughts of action, anger, or danger. Yellow, on the other hand, makes some people feel warm and happy, while green creates a sense of calm and revitalization. With that in mind, it’s essential to choose the correct color for your main bedroom, as ultimately, the decor you choose will affect your emotions and thoughts.

It’s best to use light colors, promoting tranquility, calmness, and peacefulness. Try to avoid dark, intense colors like red, navy, or black. When it comes to feeling at peace, colors with a soothing undertone, like pastel shades of green and blue, would be perfect.

Finally, your bedroom should have windows to let the natural light in during the day. To maximise the light you can decorate with beautiful mirrors such as victorian mirrors.

At night, however, you should have heavy enough curtains that can block out any light from the outside.

Scents, Accessories, and Plants

Now that we’ve covered the two main points, it’s time to have some fun by sprucing up your room with gorgeous & lovely accessories! A great but subtle way to enhance any area in your home is through scent. For example, having a scented candle or a diffuser in your room is a wonderful way to dispense aromas without it being too overbearing. An additional benefit is that you can use aromatherapy oils that help and promote restful sleep. There are many different diffusers on the market in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so finding one that matches your decor should be a piece of cake. 

Don’t have a diffuser or can’t afford one? As mentioned, cented candles are great too and work just as well to soften the mood. It’s also a cheaper alternative, and it can be found at many decor stores. Scented candles can create a gorgeous soft glow to help soothe your mind, body, and soul.

Also, you can use accessories and decorations to make your bedroom feel more welcoming. Use soft throw pillows on your bed or add a few photos of family and friends. Add artworks that make you feel calm or at ease. However, make sure not to use anything too busy or colorful that can make it difficult to fall asleep.

If you prefer a natural look, try to add a few evergreen plants to your bedroom. While it might be tempting to add flowers or bouquets, these can wilt quickly and will need to be replaced often. If you don’t change out the water frequently, you might also end up with a horrible rotten smell in your bedroom.

Instead, choose ferns or succulents to add some natural greenery to the room. Plants also help absorb toxins in the air, purifying the air while you sleep.

What Not to Have

Here’s a bonus tip: there’s one accessory that doesn’t belong in the bedroom, and that’s a television. A TV has a harmful blue light that can disrupt melatonin production and prevent you from falling asleep.

Final Word

Your bedroom should be like an escape from the stressors and bustle of life. It’s a place where you can relax and recharge, and adding the right touches to your room can make it the perfect escape.

Ensure you have a snug and comfy mattress and have fun decorating your room with nice accessories and calming colors.

Once you’re done, your room should be the ultimate tranquil space that will leave you feeling peaceful every night and revitalized every morning.
