They say the details make the design…

Think about how much time you spend in your master bedroom and how you function in the space: It’s where you wake up and get ready first thing in the morning, and it’s the last space you see before you close your eyes and fall asleep. In between, maybe you unwind watching TV or reading in bed, or engaging in some much-needed spa-time in the conjoining master bath.

Your master bedroom should be one of the most customized spaces in your home: Here are 5 architectural design details we suggest implementing in your bedroom to create your personal sanctuary.

  1. Custom Beds

We hear advertisements all the time about the importance of a customized bed and mattress. And we can certainly get behind that! A custom, built-in bed gives a master bedroom a seamless sense of design and style, increases property value and lends some customization to one of the most personal rooms in the house.

  1. Fireplaces

Nothing warms a a traditional bedroom quite like a custom stone fireplace. And a sleek electric or tiled fireplace can elevate the design of a modern or contemporary master bedroom.

  1. Lighting

We often write about how lighting can transform the functionality of a room and master bedrooms are no exception: These versatile spaces need to be as dark as possible when you sleep, and brighter as you wake up and get ready to start your day. Not to mention they need to include task lighting to accommodate multiple people at a time, so a variety of light sources, on dimmers and easily controllable from bed is a must!

  1. Built-In (Storage & Closets)

Built-in storage is a great way to customize your space in a way that will also greatly increase your property value and keep your space tidy.

  1. Windows

We’re big proponents of optimizing natural lighting in your home. Floor to ceiling windows with controllable electric coverings or shades help regulate temperatures and provide necessary privacy, while still maximizing your natural light throughout the day.
