No place in your home should be more personal than your master suite. It’s the only place that is truly yours—a spot to relax, unwind, and be free of others. In order to create the master suite of your dreams, it’s important to realize that all amazing master suites have the following five things in common:
- An open shower and deep soaking tub
An open shower turns a normal master suite into an upscale and luxurious one. What’s great about an open shower is that it can be easily located in any area of the bathroom, so space can be maximized and the bathroom can be aesthetically pleasing while inside and outside the shower. Other advantages of a walk in shower include the following:
Less moving parts mean fewer things that can potentially break and cost money to fix.
Easy cleaning due to the lack of rails, corners, curtains, and frames.
A deep soaking tub is the ultimate relaxation addition. Because an open shower can be transformed in size and shape, the size of the deep soaking tub is only dependent on the size of the bathroom itself. It can be as big, small, modern, or antique as you would like.
- A large walk-in closet
A large walk-in closet acts as a small spacious room for you to put your belongings in. It keeps things neat, organized, and clean—eliminating clutter and mess from the bedroom and bathroom. Customization options can be used to create a walk in closet that matches your personal taste. Common options include the following:
- Custom doors
- Custom shelving
- Custom benches
While creating a custom walk-in closet, it’s important to take space restrictions into account and make sure the closet size is not so big that it makes the bedroom feel crammed.
- Proper lighting
Proper lighting enables a master suite to be functional and relaxing. Many home builders and/or renovators make the mistake of building a master suite without taking lighting into consideration. Lights and electrical outlets for lights should be placed around and next to the bed and throughout the bathroom and walk-in closet. Custom light designs, colors, and dimming features are a great addition that can create an alive or calming effect with ease.
- A perfect bed
A bed is essential for maximum comfort. But it also does much more. A bed that is the perfect size and shape gives the bedroom its overall feel. A bed that is too small can make the room feel too spacious, almost like a warehouse, and a bed that is too large can make the room feel crowded and cramped. The best way to choose a bed is to sit in the bedroom and imagine beds of different widths and heights in the space.
- Personal items
The best place to put personal items that you love and make you feel comfortable is the master suite. Book shelves, table stands, and mantels can be used to help you place your items where you will see them. Personal artwork can be hung near the bed, bathroom, or closet and does not necessarily have to match the rest of the room, because no one else besides you will be using it.
