Top Ideas for Updating Your Master Bedroom Now

Your master bedroom is more than just the room that you sleep in; it’s your safe haven from a hectic life. It’s the place where you can be your most unprotected and intimate.

When it’s time to remodel your master bedroom, refer to these pro tips for making your remodel even more perfect:

Redress your dresser

You can change the tone of your bedroom just by changing the look of the largest piece of paintable furniture in your room – the dresser. You can paint it, refinish it, or replace it. No matter what you choose to do, make the dresser your starting point for the remodel. It’s easy to make these initial changes without tearing apart your room.

Make a new headboard

Get rid of that same old headboard and put something up that’s fun and exciting. You can use almost anything, from shutters to mirrors to paintings. No matter what you use, let the headboard give your room more light and life.

New rugs

Rugs are a perfect way to change the look of your bedroom without having to tear up your floors. Rugs are appropriate even over carpeting. A rug can add new color and new style to your master bedroom without a lot of effort.

Paint the room

A fresh layer of paint, even one that looks similar to the color on the wall now, can make the room look and feel great. Try a paint pattern and color. Using painter’s tape, you can add lines, hash marks, and even designs to the walls to make the room feel like the cover of a magazine.

New lights

Try adding new lights to your bedroom. With some accent lights and maybe a string of LEDs, you can change the look and feel of your bedroom. Also, try adding spotlights on paintings or tapestries on the wall.


Hanging cloth on the walls has been a way to decorate a home for centuries, but many people don’t think of it now. You can buy tapestries that have all kinds of designs, colors and shapes. Let your imagination take a walk through the internet to find the right tapestries.

New shelving

This might seem like an odd choice, but the shelves themselves can be artistic. Of course, once the shelves are up, there are lots of things you can place on them that will add style and beauty to your bedroom.

Throw pillows

Many people use throw pillows to add color and style to their master bedrooms. Not only can you buy them, but you can also make your own fairly easily. Whether you’re looking for a Bohemian style or something Victorian, throw pillows can be a quick way to create a new style.

Add on

It might seem extreme, but you can always add onto your master bedroom. With the right addition, you can place a sitting area, a dressing area, or even a hot tub right into your master bedroom.

The most important thing to remember is that your imagination is the only limit to what you can do with your master bedroom. Whether you have a few dollars or tens of thousands to spend, any update to your master bedroom can change your home and even your life.
