Being able to decorate a large master bedroom is a pretty fun concept, but it can also take some major planning! The bigger the space is in a bedroom, the more things that need to be considered. Sure there’s the bed, other furniture, and wall decorations. But it truly huge bedrooms you might have to consider whether there should be something interesting hanging from the ceiling, or that you might need multiple floor rugs to really cover the space and make it feel like home. Occasionally there are even renovating possibilities, such as reworking a portion of the space to create a nook or a raised platform. Adding in elements like that, or simply creating a seating area can offer a privacy that a large square room is often missing. The following examples on this list offer some really great inspiration for master bedroom ideas, whether your plan is to fully renovate the space or just to add in some furniture to make it feel more complete.
1. Making Interesting Use of Light
In this large master bedroom, they’ve taken careful consideration of how they wanted to use light. Along the ceiling of the room, there is a light source coming around the edge which is a creative way to brighten up a huge bedroom without piling in endless lamps. The far side of the room clearly gets a lot of natural light, so they made sure to add in some big white area for that light to bounce off and balance out the darker wood.
2. Making Functional Storage Spaces Look Nice
Storing wood takes up a lot of space, but in this giant master bedroom, they managed to make it look chic and awesome. There’s a careful balance in here between the luxury white vacation vibe and the comfort of the cabin feel. It’s a very unique setup and great inspiration for getting creative in a big bedroom.
3. Creating a Seating Area
We love the seating area at the foot of the bed is this huge rustic master bedroom. The chairs happen to match the hanging lamp, as well as the multiple rugs on the floor, which makes the space feel super cozy even though it’s basically in the center of the room. The final look is very inviting.
4. Adding a Built-in Vanity
In a large master bedroom, sometimes adding in a vanity is a great option. Bathrooms can get cluttered or busy, so creating a space just for getting ready can feel pretty organized as well as luxurious. Nestling it up against the wall makes sure that it doesn’t detract from the rest of the design space.
5. Having a Faux Fireplace
This large master bedroom has a faux fireplace and makes use of the mantle space for some cute decorations. Sometimes design elements are there more for fun than for functionality, and in this case, we certainly appreciate the use of space. Using mostly lighter shades makes this space feel cohesive and is a nice contrast to the greenery outside the side doors.
6. Creating Villa Vibes
This master bedroom has a porch around the outside of it, which has been populated with tall plants and adds to the villa vibe that this bedroom has. The gauzy curtains can be pulled to the side of each door, but they also look really dreamy and beautiful when they’re open.
7. Multiple Stories Within a Single Floor
The design of this huge bedroom is pretty unique. The ceiling here is so tall that there was room to design a second story to house the bathroom. It’s a super cool and fun idea of how to build upward in a big master bedroom. Anyone that goes this route should be prepared to offer lots of tours of the bedroom when their friends come over.
8. Getting Creative With the Floor Plan
In a huge master bedroom, there’s a bit more freedom to get creative with the floor plan, which was clearly done here. This master bedroom has a glass room around the bed, with a door and all. While it doesn’t provide a lot of visual privacy, it does provide a sound barrier in case someone stays up watching that TV while the other turns in.
9. A Giant Statement Rug
Sometimes the most challenging part of decorating a huge master bedroom is figuring out what to do with the floor. Without enough furnishings or rugs, the floor of a master bedroom can feel empty like a warehouse and even cause an echo sometimes. This giant statement rug is a perfect example of how to add to the aesthetic of the room while providing some comfort as well.
10. Large Wall Art
The bigger the master bedroom, the bigger the wall art can be! We love the use of art behind the bed in this large master bedroom. It sort of creates the feel of a second headboard, while also just making use of the big wall. Putting one image into two different frames is a unique and fun way to showcase a photo.
11. Adding in a Raised Platform
Sometimes master bedrooms are so big that it feels necessary to separate the space into multiple spaces. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including adding in a raised platform like we see here. It’s not that this master bedroom suddenly becomes two different rooms, but there’s a clear step between the areas which signals that they have different uses.
12. Keeping Cool With a Double Fan
This master bedroom is so big that it has two different fans hanging from the same fixture. It’s functional and also looks pretty cool is this rustic inspired lodge style bedroom. The sitting area in front of the fireplace looks like the perfect place to sit on those cooler nights.
14. Floor to Ceiling Bookshelves
Well, we’d call these floor to ceiling bookshelves, but actually, they don’t even reach the ceiling. Close enough! They are in fact, tall enough that they’d need a ladder to be reached. We love the idea of turning a wall into a library area. It serves as a storage spot while also looking really pretty in a huge master bedroom.
15. Making Use of Very High Ceilings
This master bedroom has an extremely high ceiling. In fact, the four poster bed frame hardly makes a dent in the height of the room at all. What they did to assist with this design is put in that hanging candle holder, which has the same color of black as the bed frame. There’s plenty of space in this master bedroom to hang that massive thing without leaving it feeling like it’s overdone.
16. When there’s Plenty of Room for an Ornate Mirror
This bedroom is both long and has super high ceilings. Being all white in there, it makes perfect sense to bring in a gorgeous gold ornate mirror to fill the space. That mirror is so tall it probably wouldn’t even fit into a lot of bedrooms at all!
17. Using the Ceiling as a Design Element
This master bedroom is so big that there is a living room and sitting room right in it! To make this space make sense, some large carvings were added into the ceiling as a decoration of sorts. It goes perfectly with the window area, so when the eye bounces up the ceiling it bounces right back down the wall. It helps make this massive space feel a bit more intimate.
18. A Gorgeous Four Poster Bed
This master bedroom is so large that there’s room to put the bed in the middle of the room. Looking closely you can see that the closet storage space begins on the wall behind the bed, so this positioning actually helps to hide that. It might feel odd to have a bed floating in the middle of the room without a bit of protection, so this gorgeous four poster design offers a super cozy and beautiful looking place to rest at the end of the day.
19. Creating a Cohesive Look With Wood Paneling
In this huge master bedroom, there was a very obvious intention to bring in a bunch of wood paneling that could be matched to items like the bed frame and even the curtains. Without the wood paneling around the room, the bed could feel dwarfed in this very big space, but that allows it all to be tied together.
20. Adding in a Partial Wall as a Room Divider
If you have a really huge master bedroom, you might actually want to add in a partial wall a room divider to make the space feel like two separate rooms. When the divider is smaller it doesn’t close the space off at all, but it does allow for a bit of privacy when multiple people are using the space.
