Requirements of a Master Bedroom Suite
The Master Suite comes in many sizes and shapes. Some have a huge bedroom area, with a separate sitting room and a huge bathroom. Others have a closet that the owners battle with everyday and some have a closet the size of a bedroom. Right now, we are going to talk about making room for the things that you want in the bedroom. But, first, especially if you have a bedroom that is on the small side - you have to meet the necessities then you can go to the "Wish List" and pull from it.
1. Sleeping - this is the main purpose of the bedroom and the bed, because of this activity and the fact that it is usually the largest piece of furniture in the room, is generally the focal point of the bedroom. There should be adequate side tables or night stands to go on each side of the bed. The night stands are crucial for lamps, alarm clock, telephones, and to hold beverages and books. If two people sleep in the bed, you should get the largest bed that you can for the size of your room - without sacrificing too much floor space for Dressing activities, etc. We will list crucial dimensions later.
2. Dressing - A bedroom must have a space that is open enough to allow the process of dressing and undressing. This includes storage space! If your closet is tiny, as most homes built before the mid 80's are, are there any rooms next to the Master bedroom that can be used as a closet for the Master Suite? Again, there are dimensions that are the basic minimums required in a closet for adults that will be listed later.
3. Privacy - All bedrooms require privacy and there should be a lock on the door and even if you don't like window treatments, there should be blinds or shades to pull down in the evening.
4. A Retreat - I consider this one of the necessities, because with toady's hectic lifestyle, if we didn't have a place where we could go and have total quiet - I think most of us would lose our minds! Because everyone's idea of a retreat is different, I'm not even going to attempt to list them, however, in my Bedroom, it is a necessary for there to be a stereo. My idea of a true relaxing retreat is to put on a CD of a thunderstorm or waves crashing on the beach. Whatever you need to made your bedroom a true retreat for you should be considered a necessity.
These are not numbered because everyone's #1 will be different. You just need to decide which of the activities below you would like to include in your Master Suite and then either do it or plan to in the future when your budget allows.
This (beautiful!) Master Suite
has plenty of open floor space as well as a separate sitting
area with a fireplace.
