The master bedroom should be the focal point of any luxury custom home because you're going to be spending a lot of time there. Even though most of that time is while you are sleeping, it’s also the perfect place to curl up with a book, spend time with your partner, or just to tuck away some privacy. That being said, when you design a luxury bedroom, it should include all the elements to stand out. Here are some must-haves for luxury bedrooms:
1. Enhanced Lighting Options
Whether your bedside table is getting overcrowded or you've chosen to forego the traditional bedside table to make room for other options (like a larger bed, for example), pendant lighting is becoming increasingly popular. This allows you to have that perfect bedside lighting without taking up space on your bedside table. Pendant lights also come in a wide range of styles and designs, so you can reflect your unique sense of taste and the theme of your bedroom with ease.
2. Large, Comfortable Furniture
If you're looking to make the most of your luxury master bedroom, large, comfortable furniture is a trend you can't ignore. Many people have embraced the advantages of large beds, including going even larger than a standard king to the California King, Wyoming King, or Alaskan King bed. Comfort is key: these larger beds allow more room for you and your partner to sleep comfortably throughout the night. Opting for luxurious linens and temperature-control mattresses can also help with your luxury bedroom.
That large, comfortable furniture also extends to sitting areas, where you may find deep chairs, luxury fabrics, and plush sofas.
3. Smart Technology
Smart technology has found its way into many homes over the past few years, and the bedroom is no exception. Smart lighting or shades can significantly enhance your overall comfort and make it easier for you to settle into your bedroom at any time of day or night. Furthermore, an adaptable thermostat can allow you to specifically control the temperature in your bedroom or to lower the temperature at night for the ideal night's sleep. Since you can control those apps directly from your phone, you won't have to get out of bed to make yourself as comfortable as possible.
4. Large Windows
Natural lighting is not only great for cutting down on energy usage, it may help you regulate your sleep schedule. By waking up as the sun rises each morning, you can cut down on the frustrating sound of your alarm and get your day off to a smoother start. As a result, many people are looking for homes that have more natural lighting, including large windows in the master bedroom. Covering those windows with sun-blocking shades can help out when you're interested in sleeping late!
5. A Spa Bathroom
A perfect master bedroom is incomplete without a perfect master bath. A spa bathroom can bring all the luxury of a spa to your home. You can create a feeling of natural serenity and a space to escape and relax. One emerging trend in spa bathrooms is to place the tub in a separate area or install a free-standing tub. The idea is to create a distinct space for soaking and relaxing, where you feel like it's just you and the bathtub.
