The Ultimate Primary Bedroom Checklist

Your home’s primary bedroom is a sanctuary made just for you. Often combined with a bathroom for an en suite experience, the primary bedroom should be just as functional and beautiful as the rest of your home. Here is our checklist for creating the best primary bedroom to suit your needs:

Consider the bed

Sleep is essential to your health and well-being. Creating a space for a good night’s rest is critical. Here are the essentials you need:

  • Bed frame: A sturdy bed frame that matches your design aesthetic should be chosen to fit the size and scale of your bedroom.
  • Mattress: Choose a mattress that works for your sleep preferences. Many options and materials are available, including mattresses with springs and pillow tops as well as space-age foam options that conform to your body.
  • Headboard: Including a headboard in your design can help define your bed. Choose a style that matches your other design choices in the room.
  • Linens: Your bed linens must be a good match for your sleep style and overall design. Choose a material that suits you, and ensure you have blankets or comforters for each season.
  • Decor: Don’t forget to include design elements that bring you joy. Install wall shelves for collections and add art to give your space more visual appeal.

Focus on lighting

You want to have the right lights in your bedroom to support how you use it. An overhead light can be important for getting ready in the morning. Have task lights, such as lamps, on your bedside tables so you can read and unwind before bed.

Add some plants

Bringing the outdoors in can give your bedroom a calm feeling. Plants are a great way to improve your air quality for sleeping and to include a simple, natural feature in the room.

Use storage wisely

For a truly relaxing bedroom, be sure to keep it clutter-free. Consider adding these storage options:

  • Closet organization system.
  • Dresser.
  • Armoire.
  • Chest of drawers.

Don’t forget the bathroom

If your primary bedroom includes an en suite bathroom, draw your design into that space. Make it a spa-like sanctuary where you can relax after a long day. But also ensure it’s a functional space for grooming and self-care.
