What all master bedrooms need.

There are some who call the kitchen the most important room in a home, and there are those who say it’s the dining room. Both are wrong of course, for it is undoubtedly the master bedroom that deserves its place as the most important room in a home. We’re here to help you make your master bedroom stand out as your property’s defining feature.

But why spend so much effort doing up a room you only sleep in? Well that’s precisely why, because you sleep in it and sleep is something no one should approach half heartedly!

The master bedroom should be a sanctuary, never an afterthought. That’s why we’ve put together a little guide on revamping your master bedroom, because we know just how important it really is.

Make the bed the main feature

Before we start on the finer details, let’s get the most essential aspect of a master bedroom sorted — the bed itself.


Don’t for a second think any old bed will do, you need to make sure it stands proud as the focal point for your master bedroom. Select quality mattresses that’ll last for years to come. Choose stylish headboards that’ll frame not only your bed, but the room too. Pick a solid wooden frame, as metal frames are often flimsy and uncomfortable.


If you already have a bed of suitable size and quality, you could always consider opting for a spot of upholstery. With Sharps, you can get quality upholstery fabric that is perfect for transforming any old bed into something special.

Create a show-stopping feature wall

A master bedroom isn’t a master bedroom without a show-stopping feature wall. This could be anything really – wallpaper, a gallery wall, or a single block colour. Whatever you pick, make sure it’s in line with the rest of the room’s aesthetics. The last thing you want is a clash of colours!

Choosing the correct lighting is key

You might think the right lighting in a place reserved for sleep is the last thing to consider for your master bedroom. That would be a mistake however, as decent lighting is key to transforming not only how a master bedroom looks, but how it feels.


The choice of lighting is entirely up to you of course. Do you pick a soft ambient lighting that’s delicate on the eyes? Or a brighter, more modern set of lights that really illuminate all of the bedroom’s qualities. It’s not just the type of light, but the sources as well. Think about bedside lights for when you want to settle down with a book. What about wardrobe lights too? If you want to make a bit of a statement, some pendant lights can add a real degree of sophistication.

Introduce a sitting area

A master bedroom certainly doesn’t have to be a place only for sleeping. You could introduce a sitting area to add another dimension to it. With the right choice of sofa, bay window seating, coffee tables, etc., your master bedroom can be truly transformed.


Remember, take the time to shop for a unique piece of furniture you’ll properly love. Getting something that stands out will make your master bedroom feel even more special.

Splurge on a luxe rug or a carpet


So you’ve got the bed sorted, the walls covered, and a sitting area. Perfect, you’re done right? Wrong! What you need to really finish things off is to spend big on a high-quality luxury rug or carpet. This will add an element of indulgence to your bedroom and give it that fancy boudoir feel.


As with the wall though, make sure whatever rug or carpet you choose doesn’t clash with the rest of the room. It can be as comfortable as you like, but if it clashes, you’ll learn to resent it regardless of how good it feels to walk on.

Add an aroma diffuser


Any master bedroom’s atmosphere can get an immediate boost with an aroma diffuser. Like with so many elements of decorating a master bedroom, you can be creative here. For example, there are various aromatherapy oils you can pick depending on your mood. Feeling stressed? Choose a lavender scent to calm the senses. Need a boost in the morning? A lovely citrus oil can do wonders for your early state of mind.
