We spend about a third of our lives in bed. People often forget this fact when designing their dream homes. While kitchens and bathrooms grab the limelight, we spend much of our time in our bedrooms – it deserves just as much design attention as any other room of the house! Bedrooms can be so much more than just a place to rest your head at the end of a long day. That’s especially true of owner’s suites. With so many options for luxury and customization, though, it can be hard to know exactly where to begin. 

If you’re eager to build the ultimate mini-getaway inside your custom built home, keep these in mind:


Extra large windows have a way of marrying the outside with the interiors. If you’re hoping to embrace Mother Nature and gorgeous natural light, consider investing in oversized windows. When it comes to fixtures, you may want to consider adding hanging bedside lighting for an upscale feel. They add a clean, functional touch to your space. For ultimate mood-setting, install a dimmer that’s controlled by a remote.

Closet Space

Many home buyers dream of closets large enough for their wardrobe or sneaker collection. Shelves and drawers can help keep such spaces neat and organized. A bench can add a convenient place to ponder your outfit of the day, while accessory storage helps keep jewelry, hats, and purses within easy reach. As you design your dream closet space, keep functionality in mind. How will you use the space on a daily basis? Use this answer to work backwards and design the ultimate closet space.


Many people opt to have their owner’s suite carpeted. Others prefer underfloor heating systems. With hardwood or tile, you can always warm up the space with an area rug. This can add a sense of plush comfort to the room. Ultimately, the flooring you choose for your owner’s suite should suit your budget, lifestyle, and design aesthetic.
