With busy lives full of family, friends and work, our bedroom is oftentimes the place we go to relax and escape everyday life. When done right, a bedroom is a stress-free private sanctuary full of soothing colors, comfortable bedding and plush pillows. Setting that tone is often a challenge, especially when kids often take precedence, but a quick makeover can easily transition even the most in-trouble space. More

The sunny master bedroom is painted in two tones, a fresh white and a deep grey that lines up with the headboard, wraps up over the ceiling and down the opposite wall. We designed the headboard and Bertoia-inspired bench in bright turquoise.

As you redesign your contemporary bedroom, be sure to consider what both you and your significant other prefer. Your suite is all about you, so don't worry about using popular trends or appealing to the kids. Because there aren't many significant remodeling changes to make, figuring out your furniture layout is the biggest decision you need to make. By the time you add dressers, nightstands, armoires and a bed, your space can easily get cramped, so it's important to figure out what layout provides enough storage yet still leaves open space to move around. Once you've settled on furniture, take time to find a color scheme and decorations that reflect your personality. In the end, if adding new decor and furniture isn't enough, you can turn your bedroom redesign into a renovation by creating your own master suite, complete with sitting room and master bathroom.

How do I determine my bedroom layout?


Before you buy a new contemporary furniture set, be sure to consider the room size. Even though you might need three dressers and two nightstands, you might not have the space. Measure the furniture and visualize where it will go so you can judge what will fit where. Be sure to leave plenty of walking space, and double check that drawers and cabinets have enough room to open properly. When picking your bed spot, think about windows and doors. Even if you have blackout curtains, placing a bed underneath a window might be a bad idea, while even the smallest crack in the door can stream hallway light in as you try to sleep.

How do I pick my bedroom color scheme and decor?


Although your color scheme is often a personal opinion, there are some colors that are more relaxing and therefore better suited for your sleeping spot. Studies have found that people with blue bedrooms often get more sleep because of the calmness it elicits. Brighter colors may lead to a better mood, but it also might keep you up longer at night. If you have a significant other, you should also consider using neutral colors so everyone stays happy. Purple and pink might be too feminine, so try variations of green, gray or brown instead. When it comes to decor, try to keep photographs out of the room for added romance, and don't clutter the space with knickknacks — it can be overstimulating and cause intimacy or sleep trouble.

How can I create a master suite?


For those looking for a master escape instead of just a nice place to sleep, try adding a sitting room, master bathroom and walk-in closet. Create your own personal reading nook by buying a relaxing chaise lounge, day bed or sofa. You can even add a fireplace and wet bar or coffee bar for those cold winter nights. Finally, ensure you get time in the bathroom each morning by installing one just for you. You can add a relaxing bathtub and makeup vanity for a complete getaway from it all, and be sure to include a nice closet to store your large (and expanding) clothes collection!
