Are you feeling cramped and limited by the amount of space in your home? Why not enhance your lifestyle by adding a master suite and creating a relaxing retreat where you can pamper yourself in luxury?
This popular room addition adds not only square footage but also comfort and privacy. With a gorgeous bathroom, well-appointed amenities, and a generous walk-in closet, a master suite boosts the overall value of your home.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of adding a master suite.
10 Advantages of Adding a Master Suite
1. Your Enhanced Privacy Awaits
When it’s time to unwind from a hectic day, a master suite addition gives you the privacy you need to de-stress. Equipped with your own bathroom, you can literally disappear from any chaos going on in the house, and take time to decompress in a spa-like atmosphere all your own.
2. Get Organized and Declutter with a Walk-In Closet
Adding a spacious walk-in closet gives you plenty of room to organize your clothes, shoes, and more so you can declutter your bedroom. Cleaning up your surroundings creates a sense of calm, and can help relieve stress. Consider a built-in storage system, a large mirror, and shelving for shoes. A closet can double as a private dressing room too.
3. Create a Smooth Transition as Your Parents Age
If your parents are aging and you have offered to have them move in with you, it will make way for a smooth transition to add a master suite for you and your spouse, freeing up additional space in your home for mother-in-law quarters.
4. Adding Another Bathroom Makes the Whole Household Happy
Rather than sharing a bathroom in a central location in your home, adding a bathroom in your new master suite can literally solve the bathroom problem for everyone. Mornings will run smoothly when you have your own, convenient bath and the kids have theirs.
5. Adding Upgrades to Your Bathroom Creates a Spa-like Retreat
You deserve to be pampered, so upgrade your master bath with special amenities, and take more time to unwind in peace each day. A steam shower or a waterfall shower, a soaking tub, heated towel racks, a sauna, and heated flooring are delightful amenities.
6. Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
You’ll save on utilities in the long run if your master is on the first floor. Hot air rises, and it takes a lot less energy to cool a first-floor master than it does a second floor one. When you become empty nesters, you can even turn down (or off) the upstairs heating and air conditioning to save even more on utilities bills.
7. Create a Personal Space You Can Enjoy
Customize your master suite addition to cater to your specific needs. Get the exact size and shape you want so you have room for the things you desire: a king-sized bed, a cozy sitting area with a relaxing view of your backyard, a place to watch your favorite show uninterrupted, or a fireplace where you can simply add warmth and beauty to your space.
Why not add a skylight so you can see the stars each night and enjoy more natural light during the day? Skylights with built-in blinds allow you to choose when you see the sky and when you don’t.
8. Get Special Lighting Features that Express Your Style
Enjoy creativity with your lighting options in your master suite so you can relish your space fully. Dimmers give you plenty of options, and decorative lighting on each side of the bed offers you and your spouse plenty of liberty to stay up and read at night. Bathroom lighting fixtures should be placed on either side of the mirror, and warm LED light bulbs give you brightness that mimics daylight.
9. Connect Your Master to Your Patio
Why not add French doors to enhance the amount of natural light in your master suite and give you easy access to your patio? Add a cozy bistro set or hanging swing outdoors so you can relax outside early in the morning or late at night to enhance your lifestyle.
10. The Long-Term Benefits of a First Floor Master Suite
If you love your home and plan to age there for an extended period of time, or even the rest of your life, a first-floor master is a must. Mobility can sometimes decrease, making steps difficult to use throughout the day. Creating a space you love on the first floor gives you the option to stay in your home even during your golden years.
