The master bedroom is a place to wind down after a long and productive day, where you can retreat and refresh; a place where you can leave your worries and stress at the door and cozy up in your bed for total relaxation.

But does your current design scheme and decor reflect this idea? You may find it more difficult to feel comfortable in a space with so many distractions— creating an atmosphere that encourages you to really feel at home begins with reevaluating your current décor and deciding if there’s potential for improvement.

Not sure where to get started? Don’t fret. Here are some simple tips to make your master bedroom more relaxing:

  • Clean up

Sometimes, the simplest gesture of clean-up can completely transform a bedroom into a more tranquil living space. Take some time to reorganize and declutter your bedroom to let the space breathe and you may find yourself suddenly comfortable.

  • Bring in the fresh scents

If your master bedroom is in need of a quick refresh, let the sensational scent do the trick. Subtly scented candles and fresh flowers can stimulate your senses and bring you peace after a long day at work. Plus, they can add a touch of luxury to a place that may be lacking in elegance.

  • Reconsider your color scheme

Perhaps it’s the current theme of your bedroom that’s making it too difficult to relax. Look around your master bedroom and decide how you feel about the wall color, bedspread, and accents. Do you feel comfortable or overstimulated with these decorative elements? Calming and soothing shades can bring you peace after a long day, while radiant shades may make it difficult to wind down.

  • Refresh with new furniture

When was the last time you put a new collection of furniture in your bedroom? If you find yourself staring at a set that’s moved from one house to another, or you’re simply holding on to a set of antiques passed down from a prior generation, now’s a great time to consider something new and improved. You don’t necessarily have to reinvest your entire setup — perhaps a new headboard and bed size can do the trick.
