A master suite is a must-have in any modern home. For starters, houses with master suites tend to have a higher resale value. But you aren’t building a custom home just to sell it. A large bedroom with an adjoining private bathroom provides privacy, which is especially crucial for families with children or multi-generational households. Including a master suite in your custom home means you never have to walk down the hallway in a towel.
Master Suite Trends
The master suites in custom-built homes can be truly luxurious. The space becomes a private oasis for the homeowners. En suite bathrooms can feature spectacular tubs and relaxing steam showers. Along with being luxurious, a master suite is also functional. Modern trends include storage innovations with large walk-in closets that double as dressing rooms. Adjacent washer and dryer make doing laundry easier. For some, a sitting area or home office is an integral part of the suite.
When you work with an architect and builder, you can include personalized elements in your master suite. Here are four amazing ideas that you might not have considered.
- Two master suites — Some homeowners go so far as to plan two master suites in their custom home. This allows for a guest room with a private bath. Plus, a second master on the ground floor is convenient for those who have trouble using stairs.
- Hidden TV — Sometimes it’s nice to watch TV in bed, but you don’t want to have a black mirror when the TV is off. Built-in retractable ceiling mounts completely hide the television. With the push of a button, the flat screen raises into the ceiling. Another way of handling the T.V. is to get a TV that doubles as a mirror or one that turns into a picture when not in-use. We have also made shutters that can be manually opened and closed to hide a T.V.
- Skylights — Natural light is always on-trend. Don’t worry about light pollution while you are trying to catch some Zs—modern skylights can be fitted with blackout blinds.
- Glass fireplace — A double-sided gas fireplace can add warm appeal while dividing a large bedroom. You can enjoy the flickering light from the bed or sitting area.
