The concept of a main bedroom has expanded broadly since its early beginnings in eastern Europe in the 1600s. At the time, primary bedrooms (sometimes referred to as ‘primary bedrooms’ or ‘master bedrooms’) were mainly used by kings and queens for privacy from the rest of court.
Although the modern primary bedroom remains a refuge, it’s also come to symbolize a space of tranquility – one where its inhabitants can relax, sleep, work, or simply connect without distraction. That’s why the design choices you make in your primary bedroom should be intentional. After all, we do spend about a third of our lives sleeping, so why not make that sleeping environment as peaceful and comfortable as possible?
Ready to bring some serenity to your luxury home? Read on for ways to create a primary bedroom that fits your lifestyle.
When designing your high-performance home, you really can have it all – this includes a primary bedroom space that’s thoughtfully designed with your needs in mind. In need of extra storage space? Consider adding custom built-ins that elevate the look of the room while hiding away any clutter. Looking to turn your bedroom into a sanctuary? Invest in quality fabrics and finishes, lighting that sets the right mood, and décor items that make the space feel cozy and tranquil.
If the luxury hotel look is what you’re dreaming of, consider dividing the room into separate spaces for a more expansive feel. You can achieve this by incorporating a lounge area with distinct artwork, lighting, and furniture that matches the overall vibe of the room. Prefer to have a dedicated space to get ready for the day? Consider adding a vanity – in addition to more natural light and a place to sit, you’ll also gain a little extra storage in your bedroom.
Ready to turn your primary bedroom into a full-on luxury suite? Consider enhancing the look and feel of the adjoining spaces – namely your closet and bathroom. A custom closet system gives you more control over how the space flows and makes it easy to keep your entire wardrobe organized. Add in custom lighting and high-end finishes and hardware to give the space a more upscale look.
Want to extend that serene vibe to your bathroom? Consider a minimalist design. By combining a few design upgrades like heated floors, a deep soaking tub, and a rain shower head with natural materials and a neutral color palette, you’ll have the spa experience in your own home.
One of the most luxurious elements of a modern primary bedroom is adjacent outdoor space. Whether it’s an upper-level balcony with stunning sunset views or a ground floor courtyard with lush greenery abound, access to an outdoor area instantly increases the serenity of the entire room. Establish cohesiveness between spaces by installing sliding glass doors for plenty of natural light, as well as seating area that complements the style of your bedroom.
Modern home technology has come a long way in recent years, with smart automation and whole home sound systems becoming standard design features in new homes. Just think about it – if you could control the lighting and temperature of your space without leaving the comfort of your bed, why wouldn’t you?
Products like Google Nest and Amazon Alexa allow you to do just this, from a single tablet, smartphone, or by voice command. If you’re looking to mix it up by listening to music or a podcast while you wind down, Sonos offers wireless speaker systems that can be enjoyed across multiple spaces in your home.
Achieving the primary bedroom of your dreams takes a healthy dose of creativity and intentionality. With your goals in mind and the right homebuilder on board, you can design a primary bedroom that’s the perfect blend of style, serenity, and function. At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than relaxing in a peaceful, rejuvenating space that enhances your lifestyle and supports more restful sleep.
