Master Suite Remodeling Tips
Your master suite is your place to retreat at the end of a hard day at work or dealing with the kids. You want a large space where you can relax in your king sized bed. You want an impressive bathroom that is more like a spa than a cramped washroom. Even more, you want as much closet space as possible.
If you don’t yet have these features in your Northern Virginia, Washington DC or Maryland master suite, you need to keep reading to find out how you can get a master retreat of your dreams. We have come up with a good list of things to consider when remodeling your master suite:
Be bold, yet subtle
Whatever your priorities in your master suite, there should be one constant theme. You want to make the space as relaxing and welcoming as possible for you but as grand and as awe-inspiring for others when they see your retreat for the first time.
Maximize the window space in your master bedroom to not only take advantage of the natural light, but using tall, slender windows will make the room seem grandiose. When you spend everyday in your master suite, you won’t be amazed by the size of your windows, but your guests certainly will. Having 6′ or 8′ tall windows will really make a difference.
In the bathroom, never go over board. If you often get ready in a rush, the more design features you have in your bathroom the more you will feel rushed. Instead, make your design features bold, yet subtle. That way, when you have time to relax and get ready in your own time you can appreciate the design features, but they won’t over power you when you are hurried.
Don’t be afraid of uniqueness
A unique combination of materials and textures will make your design stand out. So long as you stay within the first rule of being bold, yet subtle, you will find your textures working for you instead of against your.
If you are considered about re-selling your home soon, don’t fret about following this rule when it comes to everything in your master suite. Make your retreat stand out with additional lighting, including sconce lights and pendant lights.
Own your chaos
It is not an option to have only one closet in your master space. You will need at least two. Preferably three, perhaps even four or more. You will need two closets for clothes. Two closets, one for each mate. One large, shared closet will only encourage the inter-mixing of chaos. Let each person have their own closet so they can take care of their own mess.
In the bathroom, put a linen closet. Your towels, sheets and other linens do not belong in your clothes closet. Separating these two spaces will really make your retreat a neater place in general. If you can throw in another closet somewhere in the mix for miscellaneous junk (because everybody uses their closet space for their own thing – cleaning supplies, workout equipment, etc, etc.)
There you have it. Keep these three tips in mind when you are looking to remodel your master suite and you will find you will be getting the most value out of your remodeling project. Then, give Elite Home Remodeling a call to find out how we can serve you today!
