6 Factors to Take into Consideration for Building Your New Master Suite Addition


Creating a master suite can make all your dreams come true, especially if you have been sharing a tiny bedroom with your children or you are just craving more space than what you currently have. While it is easy to say that you want a new master bedroom, you will want to do a little planning to ensure that you create the space that you have been dreaming about forever.

Here are 6 factors to take into consideration for building your new master suite addition:


Constructing a master suite is not as easy as saying “I’m putting it here”. You will need to consider how it will affect the landscape of your yard and how the layout will affect the rest of your home.

Outdoor Access

The best master suites have direct access to the outdoors, whether it is a patio, garden, or balcony. You can choose French doors, sliding doors, or even pocket doors that open up to this outdoor oasis. This will be the perfect place to sit and relax early in the morning, late in the evening, or anytime you need a break from your busy day.


You will need to carefully consider the number of windows that you incorporate into this space. While a darker room will mean more sleep for you, you are going to want enough natural light for those times that you are awake in this space.

Sitting Area

A master suite can have more than just a bedroom and bathroom, and many people are incorporating a sitting area into this area in recent years. This will give you the perfect place to relax at the end of the day, whether you are watching television, reading a book, or enjoying a conversation with your significant other.


You may or may not need a fireplace in your master suite, depending on where you live, but it can become a major focal point of this space and it instantly changes the ambiance of the room too. You can choose to construct a traditional fireplace, or you can choose a modern gas one.


Every master suite needs a theme, and you will want to carefully choose the one that you want. We say carefully, because you will need to live with your choice. Therefore, if you do not think that you can live with leopard prints for that long, you may want to stay away from that option. We have found that many of our clients either go for a beach or nature inspired theme.

These are a few of the things that you will want to keep in mind when you are constructing your new master suite. We can help you with this entire process and answer the many other questions that you may have, so you end up with the master suite of your dreams.
