What Every Master Bedroom Needs | Jack Elkins

A master bedroom is an ultimate retreat. It’s where you go to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. And yet, many bedrooms are missing critical pieces of furniture that would make them truly luxurious! This post will take a look at what every master bedroom needs – from an elegant bed frame to a cozy chaise lounge- so that it can be all that it was meant to be.

Bed and Mattress

A good mattress is the foundation of a great bedroom. If you’re looking for soft, supportive, and long-lasting comfort, memory foam mattresses are your best bet. They conform to your body perfectly so that every point gets support where it needs it most.

Night-time Lighting

It’s not uncommon for a bedroom to have only one overhead light. While this is fine during the day, it can be a problem at night when you’re trying to fall asleep and relax. A master bedroom should always include multiple lighting options.

Bedroom Sheets & Comforters

Although it may sound trivial, matching sheets and comforters are important for a polished look in your bedroom. Go for crisp white linens that feel like silk against your skin. For some excitement to your bedroom’s color palette, choose a fun pattern that speaks to you.

Accent Pieces & Decorations

Do not fill up every inch of wall space with artwork when decorating your master bedroom. Instead of adding large, heavy pieces to the walls, opt for accent furniture like a dresser with a mirror or an armoire. Accent stools are another great idea that can be used as extra seating during the day and then pulled out of sight at night when you’re ready to sleep.

Chaise Lounge Chair

A chaise lounge chair is one of the best investments that you can make for your master bedroom. Not only will it add a touch of luxury to your space, but you’ll love sinking into its plush cushions when watching TV or reading in bed.

Closet space

The bedroom isn’t the only room in your house that needs closet space. Your master bedroom should have enough storage to hold all your clothes, shoes, and other belongings.


A plush area rug will anchor the room and prevent your feet from getting cold on bare floors. Plus, it looks gorgeous when paired with matching decor pieces like throw pillows or framed artwork.


It’s easy to forget about adding a mirror until you need one. A large vanity mirror is best for applying makeup so that you can see what you’re doing without having to move.


Although they’re not an absolute must for a master bedroom, curtains can add texture and warmth to your space.


It never hurts to have an extra plug-in so that you can charge your phone or tablet overnight. Just make sure it’s not too bright because this could disrupt sleep patterns and prevent restful REM cycles.
