Rethinking the Master Bedroom

The master bedroom can be a retreat or a command center.  It's a completely versatile space that should be tailored to your needs and lifestyle.  Here are a few tips to maximize your master bedroom and make it functional for you.

Invest in good window treatments

Aside from aesthetic value, choosing a good window treatment can moderate lighting and help you get a better night's sleep.  If you need to keep a room dark, use blackout lining for your curtains, but if you want more diffused lighting, consider a thinner lining.  


Create a focal point

It's all in the name.  For most bedrooms, the focal point is the bed.  Something as simple as choosing the right bed covering can pull a room together and offer a fresh look.  If the bedspread is white or another neutral color, accenting it with throw pillows is a good way to add color while still preserving the serenity of a white bed.
