Creating a Master Retreat in Your New Home 

The master bedroom in your new home at Spring Mountain Ranch is more than just a place to sleep, and perchance to dream. It is your retreat from the world after a long day. With a bit of imagination and not a whole lot of money you can create a dreamy oasis that you will look forward to escaping to all day long. We want to help you transform your bedroom, so we’ve put together a few tips.

Enjoy your view by making the most of your windows 

View from the Spring Mountain Ranch Master

Riverside is surrounded by mountains and granite outcroppings with high peak views of Box Springs Mountain, Blue Mountain, Mount Jurupa, and Mount Rubidoux. Those fortunate enough to live at Spring Mountain Ranch can enjoy these sights just by looking out the window. The breathtaking views should not be missed, so try this: Put up semi-sheer curtains and make the panels about four times the width of the window so they are deeply gathered. Place a lamp directly in front of, or close to, the window. This will allow you to see out, but won’t allow others to see in.

Create your own view with art 

Art has so many purposes. It’s nice to look at, lends a homey feel to your room, and best of all, it speaks to your soul. There’s no real art to choosing art (pardon the pun!). It doesn’t matter if you buy it at an art store, a local gallery, or an art fair. Only two rules need to be remembered when you pick out a piece. Do the colors work with your room décor, and more importantly, do you feel happy and peaceful looking at it? If you can answer yes to both questions snatch it up and hang it across from your bed so it’s the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning.

Make your bathroom into a spa

Spas are wonderful places to get a massage, but aside from that, having a spa in your own bathroom is even better, for a few reasons. Professional spa services are expensive. Leaving the house after being out at work all day is not exactly inviting. And driving home while feeling completely relaxed after a trip to the spa? Not a great idea. So create your own spa at home with a few simple additions. Install dimming lights and a massaging shower head. Put together a meditation playlist on your phone and play it through a waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Finally, create ambience with aromatherapy and candles. You’ll never want to leave your bathroom.

The right bed is a must

Now that you’re saving all that money by eliminating the need for expensive spa trips, you can spend it on the most important piece of furniture in your house: your bed. A good night’s sleep is everything, right? So get the restful sleep your body and mind needs by investing in a quality mattress. They can be quite pricey, but most come with warranties of ten to twenty years.

Relax with the right sounds

Now that you have a nice comfy bed, the next step to a good night’s sleep is having something relaxing to listen to. Even the simplest music makes your brain work while it tries to follow the chord structure. A better solution is a sound machine. Sound machines are inexpensive and unobtrusive, and they offer a large variety of sounds such as ocean waves, chirping birds, and mountain brooks. If you want to shut out the world altogether you can even listen to white noise. Again, we’ve found a website with the ten best (but not worst!) sound machines out there: http://www.toptenreviews.com/electronics/family/best-sound-machines/.

Turn your bedroom into a master retreat

You worked so hard to buy a new house at Spring Mountain Ranch. Now it’s time to reward yourself by creating a space in your beautiful new home where you can shut out the world whenever you want. You don’t have to do it all at once. Start with a good mattress, because your bed is the most important part of your bedroom, and go from there. You’ll have that oasis before you know it.
