“Master bedroom” implies that happiness and comfort in a bedroom can only be achieved through a large space. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, a master bedroom only needs a few things to be truly grand — and by grand, I mean cozy. Because think about it: what’s really better or more important than coziness? Nothing, that’s what.
Here are five home designs to make your small space living master bedroom not only grand, but cozy and multifunctional.
Lots of Pillows
You want enough pillows to build a whole fort (and whether you actually build a pillow fort is entirely up with you). Even if you throw most of them on the ground when you go to bed, you want enough to support you in any position. Fluffy ones, small ones, rigid ones. Get them all. Optimal comfort is the aim with this one.
A special piece of lighting should be beside every bedside. Turn off all the lights in the house but this one, get your favorite book, and stay up thirty minutes past your bedtime so that you can travel to another time or place. The intimate glow makes this light a trusted companion for all of your bedside needs.
Your lighting may be on top of your bed stand, or it may not. It doesn’t matter. Your bedside table’s purpose is to keep your most treasured items that you enjoy looking at every day, like pictures of loved ones, your favorite reads, and things that remind you of adventure and freedom. It should be a shrine to whatever puts you in a happy place.
Tip: don’t over clutter it. Only your absolute favorite things get to go here, especially if you’re in a small space living situation. Think of it as the VIP room of your personal counter space.
Fresh, Vibrant Comforter
You may have your favorite childhood blanket, but if it’s getting a little shabby looking even to you, at least have something pretty on top of it. Affordable options are everywhere, and comforters have the power to truly redefine a space like nothing else.
Small, Mounted Smart TV
Bad day? Need a new vibe? Stream some music or put on your favorite comfort movie. Traditional feng shui designers say a TV is the last thing you need in your bedroom, but that’s an antiquated thought because a lot of TVs aren’t reflective anymore (which is the reason they don’t like them where you sleep). Not much is better than putting something on as comforting background noise to melt away your day’s troubles.
