We are living in turbulent times. Many people in Western MA are experiencing high levels of stress. Having a beautiful, calming place to relax at the end of the day is a good way to alleviate some of the feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. Romantic relationships flourish faster when couples have a place to enjoy each other’s company without chaos and distraction.
So, how’s your bedroom looking? When you bought your home, the master bedroom may have not been your top priority. Having a convenient commute, being in a good school district, having enough space for the kids and the pets – all of these concerns tend to be more important. But now that you’ve settled in, it may be clear that the master bedroom you have isn’t the master bedroom you want.
The top complaints we hear about master bedrooms is that they’re too small, serve double-duty as a storage area for the family, and are noisy and uncomfortable. Another concern is when the master bedroom is located upstairs and the people who need to access it have difficulty climbing stairs.
One way to address this is by having a master bedroom addition built. Current trends in master bedroom design center around the need for a calm, peaceful retreat within the home. Typically, master bedroom additions are larger than the existing master bedroom; suites average between 400-500 square feet. Closet space is a top priority in many master bedroom additions; many couples choose to have two closets, which may include built in storage features. An en suite bathroom is also a popular option.
What’s not making it into new master bedroom additions? Increasingly, electronics. While watching TV in bed has been a cultural phenomenon for many years, more and more people want their master bedroom to be a place where they can truly unplug.
