Master Bedroom is one of the first rooms that we renovated in our home. Here, I am sharing details about its Interior design, stages of transformation and the total project cost.
LETS TALK A LITTLE ABOUT ‘BEFORE’
Its a spacious room with sloped ceiling and a large window letting bright sunlight into the space. Currently its bland with white wall, red oak trims, doors and baseboards. It certainly lacks character and definitely in need of stylish personal touch.
Master Bedroom Design board, Transformation & Total cost
We move quiet a lot for work and so far we have lived only in apartments and rental homes. This has taught us to live with minimal furniture and belongings. The only furniture we had In our bedroom was our king bed with metal base and an IKEA nightstand. This is our first home and we want to personalize it to our style. However, we wanted to keep the design simple with minimal footprint and a serene space. Having minimal belongings just makes our life easy if we happen to move again and more importantly its easy to clean the house!
The focus of this room is this Nocturne blue feature wall behind the bed with shimmering gold wall lamps and floating pine nightstands. I painted all the remaining walls white and the pine wood elements, black hardware tie up the color scheme together. To enhance the accent pattern wall, I made this upholstered slant headboard. The door leading to the Master bath is replaced with a custom made Modern sliding door with contrast wood slats. The window curtains, bedding, upholstery, accent pillows and plants softens the bright room adding texture and warmth.
Plans & tutorials are available for all the items built in this room. Be sure to check them out if you plan to build these yourself.
First, I built the pattern accent wall using 7-1/4″ wide shiplap boards. They turned out to be really gorgeous and the paint color is one of our favorites.
Then built a Modern sliding barn door for the master bath.
And finally the floating nightstands, headboard and bedframe. The nightstand has a clever storage with access from top to hide the cables & extension cords. No more visible ugly cords. One can simply pull the cable out of the slot on the top and put them back inside the storage when not in use.
Since our bedroom roof is sloped on the side of the window, we were unable to mount the curtain track on ceiling. Instead, they are hung as high as possible on the wall using brackets. Hanging them high will make the window look tall. White curtains add warmth, softens the sunlight entering the room and provides privacy. The curtains (Hilja) and track (vidga) are from IKEA.
Next to the window, we have full height dressing mirror that I had already built for our previous home and it fit perfectly here. Those towel hooks are custom made too. The walls are painted with whisper white, trims with Ultra pure white and the doors are painted platinum (Light grey) from Behr.
