Master Bedroom Design Choices When Building in Southwest Florida
By Harden Custom Homes 16 Sep 2018

Let’s face it, second only to the kitchen your bedroom is the most important place in your home. It's your sanctuary where you can relax, unwind, and slumber in peace away from the ringing phone, beeping text messages, and the stress of the day.

The Master bedroom needs to be comfortable and designed around the way you live. Consider first the space you may need and why. 

  • Do you need lots of closet space? Two closets (his and hers) perhaps? Or would you be ok with just one and sharing? 
  • Do you need a reading area or a desk area for work? 
  • If you choose to have a TV in the bedroom will it need a stand or be wall mounted to save room?
  • Take a good look at your furniture or the pieces you are considering buying. Lay them out and figure out how much room they take up and how much walking space and extra area you would like to have. 
  • Would there be a setting area - to put on makeup and get ready or will that be in the master bath section of the house?
  • Windows are a huge consideration. How many, what size, and of course placement - make sure to take into account your view and other homes surrounding.
  • Flooring selection is important as well. Hardwood, tile, carpet, padding, throw rugs, so many choices.
  • Lighting in a bedroom is tricky. You, of course, need overhead lighting which is to be your omnidirectional general lighting, but what about reading and night time and mood? - Bedside lamps are a great choice as are wall sconces. If you have a reading area specified, a reading lamp is a great addition. Make sure to decide where these go ahead of time so the electric can be wired properly and you don’t need to pull wires that are visible all over the room just to reach a plug.
