22 Master Bedroom Design Ideas

It’s been a while since I shared the progress on our master bedroom design.

It’s not quite finished but it’s getting there! I’m really happy with the direction it’s going and can’t wait to see the final result.

When we first moved in, we had a lot of furniture and accessories that we brought with us from our old house.

The problem was that the style of our old house was a lot different than the style of our new house.

It took a while to figure out what we wanted to keep and what we wanted to get rid of.

Our new house is a lot more modern than our old house. It has a lot of clean lines, white walls and mid-century modern influence.

Once I figured out the style I wanted to go for, I was able to create a plan for the room that I’m really happy with.

It’s a mix of modern and cozy and I think it’s going to be perfect for our space.

1. Paint an Accent Wall

If you’re not quite ready to commit to a bold color on all four walls, an accent wall is a great way to test the waters.

An accent wall can be created with paint, wallpaper, or even a different texture, like shiplap or tile.

You can choose any wall in the room to be an accent wall, but typically it’s the wall the bed is placed against.

If there are any architectural features in the room, like a fireplace, built-in shelves, or a window, that’s a great place to start.

In this master bedroom, we chose the wall the bed is placed against and painted it a deep green.

The other walls are a soft white, and we repeated the green in the bedding and the art above the bed to tie the room together.

2. Use the Same Paint in the Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom

If you have a master bedroom and a master bathroom, you may be wondering how to connect the two spaces.

One way to do that is to paint them the same color.

Not only does this create a cohesive look, but it also makes the two spaces feel like one big suite.

3. Choose Complementary Bedside Tables

Bedroom furniture sets are a great way to ensure your bedside tables match your bed frame and each other.

But if you are looking to create a more curated look, you can mix and match your bedside tables.

Complementary bedside tables will create a more dynamic look in your master bedroom, and you can use this design choice to bring in a second wood tone or a pop of color.

4. Choose the Right Size Rug for Your Master Bedroom

Next, let’s talk about the rug in the center of the room. If you choose to add a rug to your master bedroom, it’s important to get the right size.

Once you have the right size, you can decide whether you want a rug that’s centered under the bed with an equal amount of rug showing on the sides and bottom,

or if you want a smaller rug that only goes underneath the bottom two-thirds of the bed.

I chose to go with a smaller rug for my master bedroom to allow more of the hardwood floors to show.

I also placed the rug at an angle to add a fun design element to the room.

5. Have an Organized Closet in Your Master Bedroom

One of the best ways to make your bedroom feel like a luxury suite is to make sure your closet is just as beautiful and organized as the rest of the room.

Add custom shelving, drawers, and hanging rods to make sure you have a place for everything.

You can even add a vanity, island, or window seat to create a dressing room feel in your closet.

If you have a standard closet, you can still make it feel luxurious by adding a closet system with custom components that fit your space.

You can also add decorative elements like a chandelier, wallpaper, or a stylish rug to make your closet feel like an extension of the rest of your master suite.

6. Add a Fireplace to Your Master Bedroom

If you have the budget for it, adding a fireplace to your master bedroom can create a cozy, romantic atmosphere and make your bedroom feel like a true retreat.

There are many different types of fireplaces to choose from, including electric, gas, and wood-burning.

You can also choose from a variety of styles and designs to find the perfect fireplace for your master bedroom.

If you don’t have the budget or space to add a built-in fireplace,

you can also consider adding a freestanding fireplace or a faux fireplace to your master bedroom.

7. Add a Sitting Area to Your Master Bedroom

If you have the space, adding a sitting area to your master bedroom is a great way to create a cozy, multi-functional space.

In this design, a small sofa is paired with an area rug and coffee table to create a separate space for reading, relaxing, or enjoying a cup of coffee.

This is a great way to make use of any unused space in your master bedroom and create a cozy nook.

8. Add a TV to Your Master Bedroom

If you like to watch TV in bed, add a wall-mounted TV to your master bedroom. Just like the fireplace, mount the TV in a central location like the footboard wall.

You can also incorporate a TV into your built-in shelves or cabinets.

This is a great way to keep the TV from becoming the focal point of the room.

If you have a large master bedroom, consider adding a TV viewing area with a sectional or chaise lounge.
