My firm is hired to design and acquire permitting for master bedroom suite additions so often, that it was time to write a little about that and share with the public.
So what makes for a good Master Bedroom Suite? In general, you want to have a bedroom that is larger than the other bedrooms, an attached bathroom primarily accessible to this bedroom and an ample closet. It’s good to scale this suite with the rest of the existing home so that it doesn’t seem too small or exceptionally large and out of place.
The rest of the details can be up to you to decide. We’ve added many other amenities to the master bedroom for our clients including a sitting or reading room, home office, breakfast bar or beverage station, workout space, yoga studio, media center, fireplace, to name a few.
A well planned master bath is important. It should fit your lifestyle. Think about whether you would like a separate tub and shower, tub shower combination, or no tub at all. Decide if you like the toilet in its own room or the bathroom all in one room. What kind of lighting would you like? How many sinks would you like in your master bathroom?
Your budget may be the driving force for whether you include such amenities. It would be good to keep in mind that some of these custom amenities are good for you but may not be good for others thus could compromise the resale value of your home.
Our firm can help you make these judgment calls and to guide you through the process of your master bedroom suite project so that you can get the best space that fits your lifestyle while not hindering your resale. We are accustomed to working with clients to get them the most efficient master bedroom suite while still fulfilling their dreams.
