Master Suite Must-Haves for Your Next Bedroom Remodel

When you first purchased your home, you likely had a few items on your list of wants that you weren’t able to get. Home buying is an exercise in compromise after all. Perhaps you sacrificed your large backyard for some additional square footage or grudgingly accepted the hideous wallpaper in exchange for a lower market price. Luckily, as a homeowner, you have the freedom to add the qualities you originally wanted in your dream home. If your master bedroom hasn’t quite fulfilled all your desires, a master suite remodel will allow you to check off all the must-haves on your list.

Walk-In Closet

The walk-in closet is becoming a staple in more and more homes across the country. If you are still dealing with a cramped wardrobe, a remodel is the perfect time to catch up on the hottest master bedroom addition – the coveted walk-in closet. Whether you and your spouse are clothing connoisseurs or you just really like all that extra space for storage or maneuverability, there’s plenty to love about having a walk-in closet. Not only are they functional and fashionable, but they can also boost your home’s equity hundreds or even thousands of dollars. All that equity means extra money in your pockets if you choose to sell later on.

Double Vanity

You may love your spouse, but you could probably do without their makeup, hair accessories and shaving kit strewn across your vanity, taking up valuable space you need to get ready in the morning. Double vanities are another excellent addition to any master suite. With this unique two-sink vanity, you and your partner can get ready simultaneously without arguing over who is monopolizing the mirror. This upgrade is relatively easy and uncomplicated, typically costing less than $5,000. If running new plumbing becomes a problem or if you choose a higher quality stone countertop, you may end up going over that mark. One thing’s for sure though: The time and stress you save in the mornings, as well as the attractive appearance of a double vanity, make up for any costs.

Giant Shower

Who doesn’t want a luxurious spa experience every day of the week? Unfortunately, not many of us can afford to hit the spa that often. If you’re renovating your master suite anyway, why not upgrade your shower? Installing a gorgeous, large shower is a trend that’s catching on with many homeowners. Aside from the obvious value of investing in your home, a huge stone shower with a bench and updated showerheads and fixtures can make an average morning extraordinary. The size ensures there’s plenty of room for washing and relaxing, while the stone makes the entire space easier to clean. While you’re working on this area, you may even want to add a large soaking tub to soothe your aching muscles whenever you have a rough day.

Outdoor Access

If you have a pool in the backyard or a gorgeous view you’d like to take full advantage of, you may want to invest in some outdoor access from the comfort of your master suite. Not only does the addition improve lighting and accessibility, it also adds more privacy, especially if you aren’t too keen on romping through your home in your swimsuit when guests come calling. If a set of doors leading outside isn’t in the cards, the addition of extra windows can still increase natural lighting in the space without the expenses of properly sealing and insulating a full doorway.
