Ideas for Your Master Suite Extension

Whether you're starting a home building project or doing something on a larger scale, you have to keep a lot of different elements in mind. You have to think about the quality of the contractors you hire, the environmental impact of the materials you select, and the building processes that are used in the project. You also have to think about time and budget constraints. That can be overwhelming, but this blog is here to shoulder some of the burden. My name is Jonathon, and I've been there.

Ideas for Your Master Suite Extension

If you are thinking of adding an extension to your home, in order to make a new master suite, there are lots of great design ideas you may want to consider. Whilst consulting with the designer or builder of your addition, consider talking about these ideas. They will help you get the most out of your new extension:

1. Match Your Lifestyle

Your master suite extension is for you, and as such, it should reflect your lifestyle. Remember, you don't need to go with the same layout everyone else uses. Rather, you can have whatever works with your life.

That may be a soaking tub that's large enough to fit you and your partner, an office to the side for working at home, bookshelves lining the walls, room for a huge TV or hundreds of other elements. Make a list of the amenities you want or hobbies you have and brainstorm interesting ways to include them in your home extensions

2. Consider a Two-Story Design

Remember, extensions don't have to be single story. To make a luxury space, consider making a suite that starts with a sitting room on the ground level. Then, a small staircase takes you up to your master bedroom and en-suite toilet.

3. Be Strategic About Plumbing

When creating your design, try to locate the toilet of your master suite near existing plumbing in your home. For instance, place the toilet on a wall that is behind your kitchen or next to another toilet in your home. That way, the plumbing is easier to set up, and that helps to bring down the overall price of the extension.

4. Consider Integrating an Outdoor Space

For your master suite to truly feel luxurious, you may want to integrate an outdoor space. With a two-story addition, you could play with the idea of beautiful french doors that open up to a balcony. On the ground floor, you may want an opening to a private patio.

5. Put in an External Door

Even if you don't connect the master suite extension to a private outdoor living space, you may want to put in an external door. That ultimately makes the extension more flexible. In particular, you or future owners could turn the extension into a granny flat or rent it out to guests on a site such as AirBnB to make a bit of extra money.
