Building a home today includes careful planning of the master suite. No longer just a bedroom¸ today’s master suites have become a statement of luxury.
The traditional ‘parents retreats’ popular in home designs of the 90′s are now being merged into one magnificent room, that resembles that of a luxury hotel suite.
Today’s master suites are spacious enough to include a sleeping area (of course), sitting area, media space, walk-in closet with custom shelving, bath with his/hers vanities (and sometimes toilets), spa baths, double showers and more.
Opulent furnishings complete the look with designer wallpaper, luxurious curtains and other soft furnishings.
The popularity of a grand master suite in new home designs is a reflection on how home designs are generally changing to better adapt to how we utilise the space in our home. Considerable time is spent in the bedroom and this is perhaps one reason why other living areas are becoming smaller – i.e. formal dining and living areas are almost all but abolished in most new homes and yet the master suite is becoming larger.
Modern master suites also often include an exterior door leading to a private patio or deck. Used to enjoy morning coffee, bask in the afternoon sun with a good book and as a romantic backdrop to a starry night sky, the master suite patio is also a component worth considering.
Building a new home is an exciting opportunity to be able to build the master suite of your dreams for more than just dreaming in!
