How To: Plan for Your Master Suite

February 19, 2016

A master suite is usually the largest bedroom in the home. It consists of the bedroom and other adjoining rooms such as a master bathroom, closet, or sitting area. Many people (typically couples) like the idea of having part of the home that is separate from the rest. It's a nice retreat after a long day of work, for example.

Here are some options you may consider when planning your master suite:

1. A space for seating or conversation. You may include a sofa or loveseat, or just a couple of comfortable chairs as an alternative to having conversations while sitting on the bed.

2. Space for an entertainment unit. If you prefer having a TV, computer, or other technology in the space be sure to wire and set up space for an entertainment unit. 

3. You may add bookshelves for a small library, including comfortable seating. We recommend that this area is close to a window for optimal natural lighting.

4. The master suite is a great place for a fireplace.

5. Consider walk-in closets with built-in shelves for optimal organization. We love the option of adding skylights in the closets for natural light.

Within the master bath:

1. Luxury spa or whirlpool bath tub.

2. Consider a separate shower - one that is a walk-in with jet sprays and/or luxury showerheads.

3. You may add warming towel bars.

4. Double vanities with large mirrors, custom storage (like drawers and cupboards).

5. Heated flooring.
