Looking for a way to liven up your home? Dressing up your windows and using natural light is an easy lighting trick to transform your space! Curtains or drapes are another easy way to lighten up your master. Choose curtains that are flowy over heavy, thick fabrics. You can choose bright colors to match your bedding or paint colors. Add a valance for a romantic, whimsical look. Even if your windows are standard size, you can add drama by having floor length curtains to give the illusion of larger windows. 

Floor Coverings

You don’t have to replace your hardwood or carpet to lighten up the room. By choosing colorful accent rugs or textured mats, you will have a renewed life to your space. Try to select a rug that isn’t too large for your area, which will overtake the room. The key is to add a flare of color or design. You can use floor coverings to add to a theme if you have one too.

Pillows and Throws

It is amazing the way small accessories can change the overall look of a room. A small red bolster pillow along with two large box pillows in black will pop off your white bedding and just add the right amount of color. If you are looking for a more romantic master room, go for cream and gold pillows with lush burgundy throws. Using brightly colored pillows is an easy and affordable way to make your home look luxe. This will give a regal and romantic feel to the room. Of course, you have to keep your paint colors in mind of course.

You don’t have to break the bank to give your master bedroom a boost. You can lighten and brighten your room with small accent pieces, new window coverings and updated windows with custom frames. It is true that adding new windows might use a large part of your budget. However, they will save you money on utility bills, allow more light to flow in and make the room feel bigger. The other pieces you can add to your room can be done on a modest budget and will enhance the overall theme.
