A master suite can be a great addition to your home. From solving a lack of space to simply creating a private place to relax, it is not hard to see why adding a master suite has become a popular renovation project for homeowners. So if you are planning on staying in your home for a while, this addition can bring plenty of personal enjoyment.
At Ascension General Contractors, we know how important the planning stages of any remodeling project is. That is why we’ve put together some things you should know about adding a master suite to your home.
What to Do When Adding a Master Suite to Your Home
Plan Your Budget Well
The cost of your master suite addition can vary. It will largely depend on the features you are adding and the materials you’d like to use, as well as any unexpected problems that a contractor may run into during the course of the renovation. This is why it’s extremely important to write out a clear budget for the project, including any features you want to have and labeling them in order of priority. A clear budget can bring you peace of mind and give the contractor you are working with the details they need to move forward with your project while being aware of your expectations. Be sure to do your research so you can stay within your budget as closely as possible and always leave a little wiggle room just to be safe.
Be Smart About the Design
The location of your master suite is a huge part of planning that you don’t want to skip over quickly. The direction it will face alone can take a while to decide. The view and even energy efficiency are things to consider so you end up with a master suite that is comfortable, private, and has great scenery. Additionally, you’ll need to decide how to best include your master suite features like a master bath or walk-in closet into your design. Don’t forget about more practical features as well. These things like the size and number of windows and flooring material are small but important in your overall design.
Think About Space for Furniture
Another part of planning your master suite is thinking about the furniture you will be placing in your new room. Master suites are known for being spacious and during this renovation, it is the perfect time to either upgrade your current furniture or keep your current furniture while designing around those pieces so you fit everything perfectly. The furniture you are adding will all depend on what you’d like to use to increase the comfort of the room. Some great things to consider adding are a reading area, kitchenette, some creative storage, and a desk or office area.
