How to Create the Ultimate Master Suite

Unlike a master bedroom, a master suite is much more than just a place to sleep. It’s the place where you start and end your days, where you get dressed up for dinner dates and pack for vacations. It’s a place to relax, to read your favorite books, watch movies, and find solitude. A master suite can and should be anything you want it to be! 

Adding Double-Features

If you are sharing your master suite with a partner, plan on adding double features to create space and storage for both you and your partner. Consider two bedside tables, a double walk-in closet, and two bathroom vanities. Double features allow you and your partner to begin and end your days with ease and comfort. After all, two are better than one. 

A Place for Privacy 

The master suite should be your own private paradise. A place you can go at the end of the day for peace and quiet. As you plan your future home, consider whether you want the master suite on the main floor, or if you would prefer to be tucked away on another level or in another wing.

Luxury Lighting

Since a master suite is more than just a bedroom, you will need to plan lighting for the multiple areas of your suite. As you begin to design your lighting plan, address the three kinds of lighting: ambient, (general lighting), accent lighting (highlight artwork and features), and task lighting (light for your work and reading spaces). For ambient lighting, consider overhead or hanging lights such as a chandelier. Lamps are an excellent option for task lighting. They work well in office, reading, or work spaces. Lastly, if you want to incorporate natural light into your room, consider adding skylights or large windows.

Customized Comfort

Customizing your master suite guarantees that all your needs will be met. It can be anything that you want it to be. Perhaps you create a small office space perfect for remote work, or a sitting area with enough lighting to work on hobbies and crafts. If you are someone who loves spending mornings outside with a cup of coffee, plan for an attached patio with sliding glass doors. If you love cozying up by the fire, add a fireplace for cold nights. For all the fashionistas out there, consider adding a dressing room to your walk-in closet. When you customize, the options are endless!
