Master bedroom design: Colour
A master bedroom interior design is incomplete without a theme. The theme will also depend on whether you want a Vaastu-compliant bedroom. According to Vastu experts, master bedroom ideas include the direction of the master bedroom in the southwest, and the use of shades of blue and green, which are also known as couple colours. For newlyweds, the use of colours like yellow or pink in the bedroom is recommended. If you don’t want to experiment with colours, use white as the base colour and incorporate other suggested colours in upholstery and decorations. Experts mention that the use of dark colours like red, purple, black and grey for the master bedroom walls may have some negative effects, besides making the room very dark and closed. Even if you do not follow the principles of Vaastu, interior experts recommend the use of light colours for the master bedroom design for a calming and soothing effect. You can also use wallpapers if you want to experiment with themes and colours as they are easy to use, maintain and replace.

The ceiling is often neglected but designing the ceiling as part of the master bedroom décor will uplift the room.

Wooden flooring or tiles that give a wooden finish also look classy. You can also opt for terrazzo flooring, which is one of the most durable and easy to maintain flooring.
Master bedroom design: Furnishings
Based on the type of bed and the theme of the master bedroom, opt for curtains and other furnishings like a bedspread, throw cushions, carpets, rugs and showpieces. You can also keep indoor potted plants to give the room a calm, green effect. When it comes to curtains, while you can choose layered sheer curtains, you can also opt for blinds to adjust the light. Choose a combination of both to give the master bedroom an amazing look.
Master bedroom design: Master bedroom wardrobe
An important part of the master bedroom interior design is fixing the master bedroom wardrobe. There are several wall-to-wall master bedroom modern wardrobe designs available today. When you plan for the master bedroom wardrobe design, measure the space that you can allocate for it. Based on the space available, you can go for a two- or three-door wardrobe. As part of the master bedroom design, you can choose sliding doors for the wardrobe, if you fall short of space. While bifurcating the storage inside the wardrobe, make sufficient space for vertical storage to hang clothes. Allocate small storage trays for everyday stuff. It is also a good idea to keep a tray or a compartment that acts as storage for accessories like cufflinks and jewellery.
It’s a good idea to opt for lofts in your wardrobe where you can store bags and strolleys without cluttering your room. You can either install fixed wardrobes that can’t be moved or collapsible wardrobes that can be dismantled and shifted around the room. While metal wardrobes are easy to assemble and dismantle, other wardrobe materials include wood, MDF, glass and plywood. These wardrobes can be given exclusivity with the finish including full-length mirrors, paints, veneer, or acrylic.

The use of lighting helps define the look of the master bedroom. From mood lighting to practical lighting, you can design the master bedroom so that the room gets a grand look. You can also place night lamps on the side tables to accentuate the look of the room.
While these are essentials, a large master bedroom will look lovely if it has seating, a console and a dressing table.

One can push the dressing stool under the console table and save space.
