Did you know the average person spends 26 years of their lives sleeping?
And, with much of this time spent in our bedrooms, it’s important to make sure this room in our house is ideal for relaxation and quality sleep.
As a luxury custom home builder in Tampa, we understand, from experience, what it takes to create a bedroom that’s designed with form and function in mind.
In this blog post, we’re sharing four must haves to help homeowners everywhere create the luxurious master bedroom of their dreams.
A master bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. When designed correctly it can be the perfect escape to decompress and relax.
For example, aside from your bed, incorporate a sitting area which will give you extra space to relax and unwind.
Consider adding oversized chairs or a plush loveseat, a lighting option, and a coffee table to round out the space.
To build on this idea, a must have in a luxurious master bedroom is a fireplace which would work perfectly in the sitting area. Though we understand we’re luxury home builders in Tampa and the weather is HOT in Florida, there are times throughout the year when a fire is welcomed.
When the weather permits, why not enjoy a nice fire from the comfort of your own bedroom?
There’s also potential to create a two-way fireplace that’s situated between the master bedroom and bathroom. This provides ample opportunity to enjoy the warmth of a fire whether you’re in your king bed or soaking in the tub.
More times than not, luxury and technology go hand-in-hand and that’s because infusing tech into any space creates a sense of opulence. When it comes to the master bedroom, there are a number of ways to include technology in the space. Here are a few examples:
- Remote lighting – Add a layer of convenience and flexibility into your master suite. Remote-controlled lighting gives homeowners the ability to easily adjust the lighting in their room to create a more personalized experience. For example, dimmed lighting is a perfect option to create a relaxing ambience, while brighter lighting can be used to elevate a person’s mood and wake them up for the day ahead.
- Motorized shades – There’s nothing like natural light cascading through your windows, except for when you’re trying to sleep. Motorized, remote-controlled blackout shades are a must to create the perfect sleeping conditions in your master suite.
- Smart speakers – Incorporate a wireless speaker with built-in voice commands that can be integrated with other smart features in the room including the lights, thermostat, shades, music, and more.
Whether it’s lighted tray ceilings or cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, the ceiling of your master bedroom shouldn’t be overlooked.
High ceilings can make any room feel bright and airy and can increase the visual interest of the master suite. Not to mention, higher ceilings make way for larger windows which enhances natural light, better views, and creates the opportunity to add larger light fixtures to amplify the design style of your choosing.
