Tips for Creating an Inviting and Relaxing Master Bedroom

Ah, the Master Bedroom.  It’s one of your home’s most valued spaces and where you go to unwind and recharge yourself so it makes sense to have your master bedroom provide an atmosphere that is warm, inviting, and comforting.  But how can you achieve this?  We have some ideas that will help you create relaxing and inviting master bedroom that you want in your log home.

 1.  The type of flooring you choose is a personal preference.  You can go with carpet which can be luxurious and soft under your feet.  Plus it’s nice in colder weather.  Not a fan of carpet?  Then hardwood floors or tile can look great in a master bedroom.  Using an area rug can add a nice look to the room and keep those toes warm as you step out of bed.

2.  The walls are the largest space in the room.  Choosing the right color is important when you want to create that relaxing space.  But it’s a log home, how do I add color?  You can keep your outside walls log, however choosing to add drywall to the interior walls can break up the space and add the inviting warmth that you may be looking for.

4.  Add a sitting area where you can sit down and remove your socks or shoes.  Add a lamp to create a cozy area to enjoy a good book or drink your morning coffee.
