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.

The bed area of this Master Suite has all the necessities and a few extra from the wish list. The bed is large - a Queen size and there is a table surface on each side of the bed with lighting. The tables you place on the sides of the bed don't have to be matching traditional "night stands". It really does look nicer and richer to have two different type of tables. The panels at the French Doors are hung on rings to allow them to easily be pulled shut for privacy, which is important for all Bedrooms. The soft buttery yellow walls and bedspread is relaxing, yet is spiced up with some red.


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.


Wish List

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.

  • Reading - if you really like a quiet place to read, the Master Bedroom is an ideal location. If you like to read in bed, make sure that the light is sufficient and that you can turn it off without having to get up. Generally, a centrally located overhead ceiling light fixture is not going to provide enough direct light to read in bed, therefore you should have a lamp on the nightstand or a lamp attached to the wall just to the side of the headboard.
  • Exercise - Due to lack of space or simple convenience, some people like to have their exercise equipment in the bedroom. I have no problem with that. If seeing the exercise equipment sitting there reminds you to exercise, then the Master Suite may be the best place for it. Besides exercise is relaxing to some people.
  • Computer/Work Area - If you like to have your home office set up in the Bedroom, I would recommend using one of the home computer armoires that has doors so that you can hide the computer and whatever work you may have out. I say this, not because of the mess, but because, there is nothing worse than falling asleep staring at all the work you have to do - or bills you need to pay. And then, waking up to the same thing!
  • Walk-in Closet - Some people may have added this to their necessity list. But, you can manage without a walk-in closet. You just have to be more organized and also have plenty of dresser storage.
  • Sitting Area w/ Possible Fireplace - OK, I admit this is really two wishes, but they just seem to go hand in hand.

This (beautiful!) Master Suite has plenty of open floor space as well as a separate sitting area with a fireplace.
Notice how the window treatments soften the perimeter of the windows without blocking the view. In the evening
there are shades that are concealed underneath the valance that can be pulled down for total privacy.
The iron bed could have fabric draped on the canopy, however, it would distract from the coved
ceiling treatment. In fact, the ceilings recessed area has been highlighted by adding
a border in the rich red and golds that draw your attention. Always consider adding
a potted tree or plant (whether real or silk) to liven up a corner. Imagine this
room without the tree in the corner. It would look much less interesting.
