There are countless layouts and floor plans you could choose when planning a master bedroom. Important considerations are, of course, the size of the space you are working with, as well as what your priorities are.
Do you place greater importance on having a large bathroom with a private toilet area, or would you rather sacrifice bathroom space in favor of a huge walk-in closet? Do you need a seating area in your bedroom, or would you prefer to have the bed in the middle of the room? These are all questions you’ll need to address when choosing the layout for your master bedroom.
Here we look at some impressive master bedroom layouts for all sorts of room dimensions to use as inspiration.
Simple and Functional
This is a simple floor plan for a master bedroom that will work well for a range of properties because it is based on a standard rectangular-shaped room of moderate size and contains all of the elements which are desirable in a master suite. It features a walk-in closet beside a full bathroom with double sinks and also has space for a seating/relaxing area to one side of the master bed.
The bathroom has been positioned on the side of the bedroom, which is on the exterior part of the house so that it can benefit from a window to allow natural light in. A bathroom window is an important consideration when planning a master suite because it also allows for ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation and mold in the bathroom.
Spacious Seating Layout
This master bedroom has been designed in a generous space that allows the inclusion of both a walk-in closet, a full bathroom, and a spacious seating area ideal for relaxing with a book or taking some private time away from the rest of the family. The corner sofa really maximizes the use of the space by creating plenty of seating and lounging space in a cozy corner of the room.
The addition of coffee tables and side tables also means that this would be a nice area to enjoy a morning drink or an evening cocktail. This layout would be ideal for anyone who values relaxation space over storage space because the lounge area of the bedroom is very generous, while the closet space is on the small side.
Hidden Closet Corner
This master bedroom has been very cleverly planned out to feature a walk-in closet behind a stud wall, which minimizes the number of doorways that can be seen from the main areas of the bedroom. The entrance to the walk-in closet faces the entrance for the bathroom, which will make getting washed and dressed a much more seamless process with minimal travel required between the two.
The closet and bathroom being so close like this also create a more private dressing area tucked away in a hidden corner of the bedroom. The creation of the walk-in closet at the back of the bedroom also has the added benefit of a snug area being produced thanks to the closet’s exterior walls.
The bedroom features two seating areas; one to the side of the closet, which is tucked in the corner and therefore will have a cozy feel, and another to the side of the bed, which will feel open and airy thanks to the double doors.
Extensive Closet Suite
This layout is dominated by a large walk-in closet, making it perfect for anyone with an extensive shoe and clothing collection. It also features a full bathroom with double basins and a seating area in the main part of the bedroom.
This layout contains everything anyone could want from a master suite, but the one drawback is that there are internal doors on almost every wall, which can make it hard to find spaces to hang artwork or have shelves installed, and can also make the room feel like a lobby.
This master bedroom layout features three separate rooms, which are accessed via the main bedroom area. The three separate rooms are a walk-in closet, a bathroom, and a lounge area on a terrace.
The lounge area provides a perfect private spot to enjoy a quiet moment alone, and it includes a large wall of glass that will allow natural light to flood in. This could create a lovely green area to grow plants for people who enjoy gardening. The main portion of the bedroom is a generous size, with a standard-sized closet and bathroom.
Views and Shoes
This floorplan has positioned the bed facing a wall of windows and a door that could open out onto a terrace or large balcony area. It is a perfect layout for a property that benefits from nice views, as you could wake up each morning to the calming scenes of your local environment.
The layout also features a generous walk-in closet size, making it suitable for those who need plenty of storage space for shoes and clothes. The bathroom features a double sink, a toilet, and a bidet, while the bedroom benefits from two seating areas.
Corridor Closet Layout
This master bedroom features a bathroom that is accessed by walking through the closet. The bathroom itself only has one basin but plenty of counter space for bathroom products to be within easy reach.
The position of the bathroom past the closet makes the bathroom more private as it feels slightly removed from the bedroom itself. Having the closet opening out into the bathroom also makes practical sense because your clothes will be right there when you get out of the bath.
This floorplan has been created out of an L-shaped bedroom, with a closet area next to the bathroom. Instead of a walk-in closet, this bedroom has a reach-in closet. This provides a good amount of storage space, but it lacks the privacy offered by a walk-in closet for getting dressed.
The bedroom features a dressing table, which would be ideal for applying makeup, and an additional area for drawers to provide additional storage.
Extravagant Master Suite
This is an impressive bedroom layout for anyone who has copious amounts of space and wants to be able to truly live their best life. The bed is positioned in the center of the bedroom in front of a large window to make the most of any surrounding views. A door from the bedroom opens into the bathroom, which features a double basin and a large expanse of countertop.
At opposite ends of the bathroom, there is a private toilet room, and a private bath area, allowing users of the room ultimate privacy. From the bathroom, you can then access the dressing room and walk-in closet, which is a breath-taking size, taking up almost as much floor space as the main bedroom area. This closet provides extensive storage for clothes, shoes, and accessories and would be a luxurious room to get ready in.
Private and Practical
The layout of this master bedroom is styled to offer both privacy and practicality. The bathroom is accessed via a door in the main bedroom area, and it features a double basin and a bath. There is a further room accessed off of the bathroom, which includes a toilet.
This is great for privacy, and it also means that different users could occupy the bathtub and the toilet simultaneously. The walk-in closet is also accessed via the bathroom. It features two walls of rails for clothes to hang and one wall with a dressing table which would be an ideal area for applying makeup or styling hair.
If you want to achieve a lavish and luxury layout for your master bedroom suite, then this could be the floor plan for you. It features an enormous walk-in closet dressing room that is equal in size to the actual bedroom area.
The floorplan features an entrance corridor that is used to access the closet, the bathroom, and the main bedroom, which provides the advantage of not having numerous interior doors in the main bedroom, aiding in privacy and tranquility. The bathroom has a double basin, a private bathtub area, and a separate room for the toilet and bidet.
This master bedroom is entered via a landing area that houses all of the doors to access other parts of the master suite. From the landing area, you can enter the bathroom, the walk-in closet, or the main bedroom.
The benefit of the landing area means that anyone sleeping in the bedroom won’t be disturbed by anyone who wants to use the bathroom or closet, as they won’t need to go through the bedroom to enter those areas.
Central Bedroom Floorplan
This floorplan has positioned the main bedroom area in the center of the layout, with a walk-in closet off to one side and the bathroom to the other side.
The bathroom is accessed via a terrace area, which is great for making it feel separate and more private from the bedroom but might be inconvenient if you need to visit the bathroom during the night because it is further away. You’ll also have to make the journey across the bedroom when going from the bathroom to the closet to get dressed.
This master bedroom has a balanced feel due to the symmetry used in the layout. The generous walk-in closet is situated at one side of a corridor, with the bathroom on the opposite side. At the end of the corridor, you reach the main portion of the bedroom, which is simply enormous.
The bed is situated in the middle of the room, facing a wall of windows so the view can be enjoyed while resting. The bathroom is large and split up into sections for privacy and increased functionality. There are a set of matching basins in one section, a bathtub in another section, and a private toilet in the final section.
Magnificent Master Bedroom
If you have a seemingly never-ending amount of square footage to use for your master suite, then this is an incredible layout for relaxing, sleeping, dressing, washing, and even eating. The bedroom has a wall of glass windows and doors that open out onto a private terrace featuring a casual seating area, as well as a dining table and chairs.
This would be a lovely area to enjoy a quiet breakfast or an evening drink. There is an enormous bathroom in the suite, which has two basins, a bathtub, and a separate shower stall.
There is a separate toilet room for ultimate privacy and a large walk-in closet dressing room. The bedroom itself is a serene and tranquil space with minimal furniture or storage because all of these components are included in other rooms in the suite.
