8 Master Bedroom Details That Make the Room

Keep your sleeping space from being a snoozefest with these dramatic focal points and luxurious features.

Today’s master bedrooms take advantage of the power of detail. The right colors, treatments and accessories can turn bland bedrooms into unexpected delights. Whether it’s a simple picture ledge for your family portraits, a freestanding screen to divide the room or a fireplace for those cold winter nights, these details can add personality and practicality. Here are eight to consider for your own bedroom.
Picture ledge. Try a more relaxed approach to hanging art. These homeowners built out their focal wall behind the bed by about 3 to 4 inches and capped it off with a painted wooden ledge. Leaned pictures have a more casual appearance than ones that are hung.

Building out a bedroom wall with drywall creates a beautiful, seamless look. But you can also install a wooden wall shelf or ledge onto your existing wall for a similar effect.

Padded headboard.Make your bedroom feel like a hotel with a modern padded headboard. Padded headboards can be found at most retailers, but you can also make your own with this great guide.

This designer went a little further and matched the wall paint exactly to the fabric color. Notice how the horizontal stripes just flow right over the padded headboard. Spectacular!

Freestanding screens. The antique mirrored screens are a focal point in this room and create an instant dressing area. You can also use screens to camouflage awkward corners or other unsightly features.
Mix old with new. Matching bedroom sets are no longer a necessity — just mix and match the furniture you love. This designer used several different styles of furniture to create one solid look: A vintage dresser, a new bedside table and an antique trunk all work together to show off the homeowners’ personality.

Add a fireplace. A bedroom fireplace doesn’t have to be a wood-burning one installed by a mason to look the part. You can buy one from a store that specializes in selling freestanding models. Some run on gas, and others are electric — just plug them in once you’re home. These fireplaces often don’t need any extra ventilation, but don’t be fooled: They can really heat up your home.
Privacy without curtains. Do you have a view that you just can’t bear to put window treatments over? Apply frosted vinyl for privacy and a view. This homeowner went up about 36 inches high, which still allows for a scenic view while lying in bed.
Board and batten. Go beyond plain-Jane drywall; spruce up your walls with floor-to-ceilingboard and batten. To achieve this look, designers usually apply wood paneling (board) over existing drywall and then add small vertical molding strips (batten) in measured widths. However, you can also add battens over drywall without the board to cut down on cost, and it’ll still look great.
Exposed ceilings. If your unfinished ceiling looks like this, don’t even think about covering it up with drywall. Let the exposed floor joists and rafters become a daring design element that demands attention.
