How to Remodel a Master Suite

If you’re looking to create a luxurious master suite or remodel the one you currently have, you may be unsure how to start. First, understand that a master suite typically includes three components: the bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet(s). Then, know that your needs may differ from your neighbors’.

This is why the Wentworth design team asks questions about your basic expectations before the design process begins. To get the most out of your master suite remodeling project, make sure you can answer these questions.

The Master Bedroom

  • Does the room need to accommodate a king or queen size bed?
  • Do you want to incorporate any family heirlooms or special furniture pieces into the room?
  • Do you plan to put a television in the bedroom?
  • Are you hoping for a special sitting/reading area in the suite?

The answers to the above questions create the groundwork for designing your master bedroom. Knowing the required square footage, wall angles, lighting needs, and more provides the foundation for a beautiful, functional bedroom.

The Master Bathroom

  • Does there need to be a door separating the bathroom from the bedroom?
  • Do you require two sinks?
  • How do you feel about showers vs. tubs?
  • Do you have aging-in-place requirements?

With the answers to these fundamental questions, the Wentworth design team can help you pick fixtures and finishes to create the aesthetic and comfort level you expect after your master suite remodeling project is complete.

The Walk-in Closet

  • How much space do you want to set aside for the master bedroom closet?
  • What type of storage do you need in your closet—hanging space, shelving, drawers, cubbies?
  • Do you want “his and hers” closets?
  • Are you interested in built-in dressers or a central island to maximize space?

Having ample room to store clothing and other items allows the rest of the en suite to remain uncluttered. Custom lighting, shelving, door designs, and more from the Wentworth design team help to personalize your closet space, no matter how large or small it is.

“ A number of the design elements I could easily envision from the plans and knew I would like, such as the arched French doors, window over sink, pantry. But others came to life for me only in the implementation. Standing in the doorway of the small bedroom, for example, is one of my favorite views; the arched cubby is beautiful. ”
