Issue 7.5 Custom Master Suites



View as eBook


They say you shouldn’t make a guest room too comfortable or your guests will overstay their welcome. So the opposite must be true for a master bedroom: make it sublimely comfortable so you will never want to leave. Although a plush bed and double sinks will suffice, there are countless luxurious ways to customize your master suite; from his and hers closets to steam rooms to seamless panoramic windows. A custom master suite may be simple or extravagant as long as it speaks to you.


When designing a house to sell, the master bedroom should generally appeal to a female buyer and a lavish closet might just seal the deal. Skip the standard reach-in closet and opt for a more detailed dressing room. If you can afford the space, turn a traditional walk-in closet into a full fledged dressing room, complete with seating, lighting, and plenty of functional storage. Consider ready-to-assemble storage systems with shelves, hanging rods, and drawers. Or invest in more intricate built-ins, glass display cases, and rotating closet bars. Preserve your wardrobe investments and line shelves and drawers with durable cedar. Natural light is best so avoid faded clothing with stylish window treatments or tinted windows to block UV light.

Furniture & Décor

If your taste is anything but generic you’ll want to reach out to island designers and decorators to create your dream décor. By using distinguished materials, colors, fabrics, and artwork, the space becomes uniquely yours. Instead of major home stores, look for vintage artwork, handmade linens, and locally crafted furniture. Look to custom built-ins to display your prized possessions and to save space or hide electronics when they aren’t in use.


Often homeowners are afraid to customize too many aspects of the home for resale purposes but the bathroom will always benefit from a well-done update. Style is less subjective in a bath because potential buyers look for modern upgrades and high-end fixtures and materials instead of colors and décor. When was the last time you saw a toilet that wasn’t white? Customize your bathroom with a sophisticated Toto toilet, built-in shower sound system, dual showerheads, controlled temperature settings, freestanding basin tubs and infinity sinks.


Nothing says personal luxury like a bedroom wet bar. Made for convenient access to morning coffee and evening spirits, a bedroom bar is perfect for a spacious house that would otherwise require lengthy midnight jaunts to the kitchen. High-tech gadgets are also handy additions to a custom master suite. Motorized shades, bedside temperature controls, and intercoms make bedroom retreats even more stress-free. Retreat, relax, and enjoy the suite life!
