If your home is anything like mine, most of your house is about accommodating others. The living room is for gathering with family and friends. The kitchen is for making food for the family, and in my house it functions as homework central. The bathrooms? Let’s not go there. Where is your personal space? Your master bedroom of course. If you are thinking of adding a master suite to your home, consider some additions that will make it a luxurious retreat. Now is the time to pamper yourself. Or as Tom and Donna from Parks and Recreation would say, now is the time to “ Treat Yo Self.” Here are some things to consider.
Keep Your Master Suite Open and Bright
Making a space feel special is more than just adding some ornate furniture and calling it a day. It is also about the physical design of the room. Consider opening up the space with tall ceilings and cutting out custom windows to maximize on natural lighting. Perhaps you could add a sitting area to read in after the kids have gone to bed.
Small Touches Have a Big Impact on Your Master Suite
As they say, it’s all in the details. A little lighting can go a long way. Recessed lighting and dimmer switches to set the mood can make a big difference and create a certain ambiance. You could also consider details like heated flooring. You'd never have to wake up to a cold floor again (dreams can come true). For more information on floor heating, see this article by Remodelista.
Top Your Master Suite Off with a Luxury Master Bathroom
The bathroom space of your master suite can also be luxurious. I cannot get enough of the trend of chandeliers in bathrooms. They instantly add a sense of glamour to the space. This Burke, VA bathroom remodel feels open and luxurious and would definitely be a space I could see myself relaxing in.
