The word is out - larger master bedrooms are back in style! With the average family size smaller these days, home owners have more space to work with. Check out some of these bedroom decorating ideas and turn your bedroom into more than just space for sleeping.

Bedrooms are sometimes thought of as functional in much the same way as bathrooms so why spend time and money on bedroom decorating?

Why Bedroom Decorating is a Good Idea

You spend approximately one third of your life sleeping and perhaps even more than that. While sleeping may be the primary purpose for the master bedroom it is no excuse to skimp on bedroom decorating.

A nicely designed bedroom can help you sleep better at night and, instead of closing the doors to your master bedroom when company calls, with careful bedroom decorating you will be pleased to show them around the entire house.

Design Ideas for your Bedroom

The furniture is a good place to begin your bedroom decorating. Your bed and matching dressers, night tables, and other furniture take up the most space in your master bedroom and should fit your bedroom decorating plans.

In bedrooms, with lots of extra space you might consider a sitting area with a gas fireplace and a large walk-in closet. A bookshelf with a sofa and coffee table can also turn the bedroom into a favorite destination for relaxation any time of day.

Installing a spa or sauna in the private bathroom is another excellent way to combine comfort and beauty in the bedroom. In small master bedrooms avoid blocking windows and try to choose bedroom decorating ideas that leave as much floor space available as possible. Plants are a good way to liven up bedroom décor and can sit on the floor in large master bedrooms or hang from the ceiling when space is tight.
