The 'before' bedroom
Create Your Master Bedroom
  • Paint your walls a color that matches your room's strongest architectural feature, such as a brick wall or fireplace.
  • Faux wood floors are a great alternative to carpet. It's inexpensive, easy to install and comes with a padded backing.
  • Don't use bed sheets as "custom upholstery." Buy slipcovers or make them yourself.
  • Shelves, framed pictures and other items you hang should be scaled to match the size of the wall.
  • Replace old mattresses and find a bed frame that suits your tastes.
  • Designate one area for storage and use proper storage units.
  • Window treatments should be consistent throughout the room.
