Designing and planning your custom home master suite is one of the most fun parts of custom home building. There are so many features and details you can work into your suite. One of the best ways to make this space so enjoyable is to design it as if it was your own private getaway.
Who says every night can’t feel like you’re off on an exotic vacation? When you design your master suite like it’s a getaway, every day will feel like a vacation. To help you get started, here are a few ideas you should consider including:
Private Deck or Patio
What could make your master suite feel more like a private getaway than a deck or patio directly off the suite? If your master suite is on the second floor, then a deck is perfect way to find privacy while also creating a space where you and your spouse can spend intimate moments together. If your suite is on the first floor, then a patio is the way to go. Create a privacy fence of shrubs and plants, so you feel like you’re in your own oasis every time you step outside.
You can’t get much more romantic than a fireplace in the bedroom. But, creating an entire seating area around the fireplace, is certainly a great start. Imagine unwinding after a long day by sitting in front of your own private fireplace in a comfy chair or on a small sofa sitting next to your spouse. You can even add a small wine or drink fridge to the space, so that your fire-viewing is even more relaxing.
Windows With a View
While you may not have views of the beach or mountains right outside of your home, you can still make sure your custom home master suite is laid out for the best view possible. Consider moving the master suite to the back of the house, so you can see the trees, landscaping, and backyard. You’ll enjoy this view much more than the view of the street or road outfront. Also, avoid putting the windows on the east side of the room, so early morning sunrises don’t wake you up.

Fireplace sitting not really your thing? That’s fine, but it doesn’t mean you can’t still have a private place to sit and relax in your custom home master suite. The sitting room is a great place to unwind, take a break from the kids, and relax in. The best part? It’s completely your space, so you can make it whatever you want it to be. Adding a TV to the sitting room means you can always watch your favorite show, a comfy couch means you can sit and relax, and built-in bookshelves mean your favorite stories are never too far away for you to read.
