Master Bedroom Makeover

Master Bedroom Makeover

Master Bedroom With Blue Accent WallOur new home is about four years old so you might wonder why I’m writing about a Master Bedroom Makeover.  We’ve spent the last couple of years buying furniture for the kids rooms and other family rooms. This meant living with our old furniture that my wife had before we got married. Well it was finally time to makeover our plain drab looking bedroom.

In addition to buying new bedroom furniture the makeover included painting an accent wall, new curtains, new artwork and even a new Panasonic LCD HDTV!

Our master bedroom suite is rather large and features his and her closets, a private bathroom and a walk-in closet. Because we have so much closet space we really only needed night stands and some type of dresser for the TV. We ended up upgrading to a king size bed and buying two night stands and a media center that’s specifically designed for bedroom TV’s and components.

Accent Wall

Bedroom accent walls are very popular today because they create a focal point that breaks up the space nicely. We chose the accent color from the new bedding that we purchased from L.L.Bean. Typically, accent walls are painted a vibrant color with lots of contrast to the remaining walls that are typically a more neutral color. In our case we chose “Sport Blue” by Sherwin Williams. We are very happy with the results of the accent wall and the dramatic impact it has to the overall look of the room. Even if you’re not buying all new furniture an accent wall can be an easy DIY project that creates a whole new look for your room!

Media Center

Most furniture manufacturers are now selling bedroom furniture designed to accommodate today’s new technologies including flat screen TV’s, cable boxes and other media electronics. In fact, the media center we purchased included a built-in surge protector and cable connections. The new media center is great because it neatly hides all of the electronics and also keeps them out of prying hands (baby’s).

Before & After Makeover

The following pictures document the dramatic change our master bedroom has undergone with some simple changes.

As you can see there’s a dramatic change in the appearance of our master bedroom. Next time you want to renovate a bedroom consider adding an accent wall.
