Most people spend the most time working on the areas of the house that are open to visitors, such as the living room and game room. The master bedroom is arguably the most important room in the house, though. It is a place to sleep, a refuge, and a sanctuary. It’s the room where you spend the most time, and where you both end the day and greet the new day. That is why many people interested in home renovation are choosing to focus on their master bedrooms.
How Do You Want to Use Your Master Bedroom?
If you are willing to be open about your plans for a home remodel, you can have the bedroom of your dreams, even if you didn’t realize that was what you wanted. The possibilities are almost endless. Think first about how you want to use the space, and that will guide you toward making other important decisions.
Do You Want a Snug Sleeping Nook?
Not everyone wants a large master suite. For many, it is simply more relaxing to have a room dedicated entirely to sleeping. In fact, it may be better to have a small room that only fits the bed and a nightstand. The less furniture in the room, the less likely you will end up with clutter, making your retreat more cozy and organized feeling. A private bath can still be attached, for convenience.
Consider a Loft
You can maximize the available space and create a sleeping space in a loft area. The loft will be more relaxing for some because there won’t be room for anything but sleeping, and you can turn the rest of the room into anything you want. You can put in some comfortable chairs and bookshelves and use the space to listen to music and read books, create a home office, or turn the area into a game room or den.
A Master Suite
You can create a master suite, or upgrade your current suite, to have what feels like a home within your home. Most suites will have space for a comfortable bed and at least one walk-in closet, with a custom master bath. Many master suites also have a sitting room, which is just a comfortable place to relax. You can add in elements so you won’t need to leave the room for refreshments, such as a mini-fridge and coffee maker. There should be a place for everything, so the entire area feels functional.
Storage, Closets, and Other Important Considerations
Do you want the space to feel open, with a skylight and large picture windows, or is it more important to feel blocked off? Do you want built-ins, so the surfaces are more seamless and the areas less cluttered? Do you need extra floor space for weight lifting or yoga? This is your space, and you can design it for your specific needs. This is the time to decide if you want a fireplace or a decorative wall.
Storage is especially important when it comes to bedroom home improvement projects because you want to keep your personal items organized and at hand. Not just clothing but toiletries and other items need to be easily accessible and cared for. You may want to add shelving and/or design a closet especially designed for your belongings. One important consideration is always to find a way to keep your personal items from cluttering up your personal space.
