From the Ground Up

Designing the Ideal Master Suite

When designing your new home, the Master Suite is where you should put a lot of your focus! It’s your most personal space in the house, it’s where you recharge, and where you can get away. So it is important to take time when designing the space. Here are a few ideas to
consider when designing the master bedroom.



When it comes to privacy, do you want your suite on the main floor away from the rest of the bedrooms? Would you orientate it near the rear of the home, to optimize a view? Or do you want it close it to other bedrooms, so it’s near the other bedrooms? It’s important to consider where in the house you want your room to be before you start designing the room itself, since it affects the overall floor plan.

Plus, when it comes to privacy, you can strategically place your windows to maximize your privacy from the neighbors.

Access to Backyard or Balcony

If you do choose to put your master suite on the main floor, you can add backyard access to a patio area. If you enjoy your outdoor living space, it may be something you want to consider. Where do you want to enjoy that first cup of Joe in the morning? Or if you are on the second floor, maybe adding a sitting area, to enjoy the sunsets.

Vaulted Ceilings

Raising the ceiling in your master suite can make the space look grander, without actually changing the size of the room. You can add rustic wood beams to your vaulted ceiling for an even more dramatic and warming effect.


Add some ambiance with a fireplace can be a cozy addition to your bedroom. It makes the space seem more special and you can even create a seating are around the fireplace to sit down and relax on those cold winter nights.

Walk in Closet

You can’t talk about the master quite without talking about the closet! If you have a large wardrobe then accommodate it with a large and functionally designed walk in closet. You may even consider building a his and hers closet if you want to separate the space.


Lighting can be an important factor when designing the master bedroom. The great thing about custom homes, is that it can be built to add the newest technology. Home automation allows homeowners to control the lights from a remote or app on their phone.

Spa like Bathroom

The master bathroom is another important part of the master suite. Creating a relaxing space for you to rejuvenate in may be at the top of your list. Having a free standing soaking tub, large walk in shower, soft lighting, and one of a kind vanities may be exactly what you need after a long, hard day.
