Master Suites with an Open Bathroom

A unique open concept layout that is cropping up more and more is a master suite with an open bathroom. Basically, there are no doors separating the bathroom and the bedroom. While the set-up isn’t for everyone, for some it offers a flow that they are more attracted to than the traditional set-up. It has a very minimalist appeal that is modern and loft-like. Some hotel rooms adopt this look to make the most of the space. If your master suite is small, going with an open concept can definitely help make the space feel more open and less cramped.

Take a look at these 10 master suites with open bathrooms; you may be surprised by how efficient and even design-savvy they can be.

Ask A Decorator: Master Bedroom Decor On A Budget

With the public spaces in the home (the kitchen, living room, dining room) usually becoming the priority to decorate since they are the ones our guests enjoy with us, it is easy for a personally cherished space to get the back burner when it comes to decorating. I’m talking about the master bedroom. It’s where you go to unwind after a long day and there is something very special about having a space that is both comfortable and beautiful ─ and completly yours. A reader recently asked a great question:

My master bedroom is in need of a makeover but I’m on a budget. What could I do to spruce it up?Charlie

A master bedroom is a very easy space to decorate on a budget. It’s all about creating a space that reflects you and feels like a retreat. The great thing about a bedroom is that you don’t need any major renovations to make it beautiful. Color, texture, and accessories go a long way. Here are some ideas for master bedroom decor on a budget:

Keep side tables clear of clutter. Accent them with just a few affordable accessories such as a table lamp, pretty flowers, and a picture frame featuring someone special.

Curtains do wonders to soften a room and make it feel finished. Hang them from the ceiling to the floor for a grand effect and choose blackout curtains to keep the morning sunlight out on weekends. 

Cozy up a master bedroom instantly with a well-chosen area rug. They will warm up a wood or tile floor, giving you something soft to walk on. Even if you have carpet, an area rug can add extra color, pattern, or texture.

Instead of buying an entirely new bedroom set, consider swapping out just the headboard for something new. You can find affordable ones at thrift stores or you can get crafty and make one yourself.

Lighting plays an important role in every room. For a master bedroom, don’t go for anything too bright or consider installing a dimmer for a more relaxed atmosphere. A chandelier can add a glamorous touch.

The bed is always the focal point of a great master bedroom. Layer a colorful patterned throw or comforter over neutral bedding to give it dimension. Finish it off with a few rows of mixed and matched pillows.

Choose a wall color that speaks to you. If you want a serene and calming effect, go with a soft tone. This could be a neutral such as greige (gray/beige) or a color like blue or a seafoam green.

Choose artwork that will pull the room together and give it some life. If you have a particular theme you are trying to capture (i.e. coastal), this is a perfect place to add an element that speaks to its spirit.

Most of all, have fun decorating your master bedroom. After all, it’s all about you! Focus on creating a space that helps you unwind.
