The master bedroom - if there is one room in the house that many people desire to feature luxury it's the master bedroom. This space is intended as the get away for many individuals and couples from the day-to-day stresses that can build up. A homeowner intent on creating an oasis of calm may want to consider including a number of features in his or her space. Color, temperature control and light all play a crucial role in the comfort of a space.  The Midland Daily News reports that there are a few cost effective ways to transform a master bedroom into a sanctuary.
"A new coat of paint can go a long way. Try to find a color that is relaxing, but fresh blues and greens are very popular," said Hali Gilbert of Nowak Cabinets of Midland, according to the news source. "An easy fix is new bedding and curtains. They can change the feel of a room and add texture, which is visually interesting. I believe that the comforter is the most important piece of fabric in the room. Besides the floor, it is the biggest piece you are going to see, and generally, the bed is the focal point of the room. That being said, you may find times that you want a large window to be the focal point. If this is the case, opt for a very simple, light color for the bedspread and draw more attention with curtains."
After a homeowner determines what color scheme and feel they want the room to have, it's time to incorporate the use of comfort-providing technologies in the room. Radiant floor heating can increase the pleasant feelings a person gains when walking into the space. When combined with the right decor, radiant floor heating can help transform a simple bedroom into a sanctuary for an individual or couple.
