The owner’s suite is a very personal space in a home. Today, the owner’s suite is defined not only by a large bedroom and oversized bath, but the design also involves a space that is defined by function as importantly as footage.
Frequently we design and build incredible owner’s suites. We receive requests for showers as huge walk-through spaces with multiple showerheads and tubs large enough to swim in. We design and build owner’s closets that resemble dressing rooms with dramatic lighting and three-way mirrors. Built-in storage has eliminated the need for bulky furniture in the bedroom.
What defines your dream space?
It’s important to think about your owner’s suite just as you would any other space in your home. Before making any decisions consider these questions:
- How will I use the space?
- How much time will I spend there?
- How large do I need the space to be?
- What furniture will I put in the room?
- What elements will make the owner’s suite feel relaxing and peaceful?
Function before footage
Above all else, the owner’s suite should be designed to be functional. In many of our homes, clients incorporate spaces like a sitting area, home office and laundry area into the design of their owner’s suite. New parents have requested an adjacent room for a nursery and some of our seasoned clients request this same space to accommodate a caretaker in the future.
For many homeowners, the owner’s suite is no longer just a place for rest and relaxation. It is now a self-contained space where they can recharge and live. Each owner’s suite design varies in size and amenities, but all are thoughtfully developed with the homeowner in mind.
