Your Master Bedroom: Where Should it Be?

You hear us talk a lot about your home design and the importance of starting the design process early. In fact, it's never too early to jump right in and start thinking about your floor plan, even if you're a couple - or even a few - years out.

Choosing a floor plan is a delicate process in your journey: you want to make sure you have everything you want in a dream home, and all of those things are in the right place!

While every room in the home is important to consider, the master bedroom is almost always high on the list. So, what about the location of the master bedroom?

Main Floor 

There are plenty of reasons why you'll see many floor plans with a main floor master:

  • A main floor master is convenient
  • Could result in extra privacy, especially if the rest of the bedrooms are upstairs
  • Is looking ahead. It may be beneficial to think about retirement years and enjoy the ease of a main floor master

In addition, having your master tucked into the back may provide more privacy, and have a little "extra" piece and quiet.

Main Floor Master Open to Nature 

This is common in many of our classic home designs, and it makes sense. If you're building a cottage-type home,  you're more than likely to have a view that's just as beautiful as the home itself! If you're planning on spending time outside, you may want to consider a set of sliding doors which open to a deck easy early morning access to enjoy your a.m. coffee!

The Master Bedroom on the second floor

Many homeowners may feel having their master bedroom on the 2nd floor of a 2-story home is the way to go. Many may feel it's more of a "retreat", or more peaceful than having a main floor master.

This home is a 2 bedroom home, with not just the master "upstairs", but the second bedroom is located on the second floor as well. This is beneficial all the way around - for those with children - especially younger children - or to use as quiet office space or work room, or to simply leave it as a guest room. 

In addition, having all bedrooms upstairs will mean more main floor space for those who want a larger kitchen, living, and/or dining rooms.
