A popular remodeling project among homeowners is a master bedroom addition, complete with a new master bath. Often, a master bedroom remodel will involve building an addition to the house, to add as much space as is required. If you are considering taking this step and developing a master bedroom addition, read our guide below for how to prepare for the creation of your new and impressive living space.
Determine the Location of Your Master Bedroom Addition
Knowing whether your master bedroom addition will be on the first or second floor of your house determines what construction methods the project will require.
First Floor Addition
A first-floor addition will require a slab or foundation to support the room, and it will take space away from your yard. However, this addition will be the least disruptive to your daily life.
Second Floor Addition
A second-floor addition will require strengthening the existing structure of the home. It will likely involve removal of the roof system and some of the first-floor ceiling and walls to install new plumbing, electrical wiring, and HVAC systems.

Identify Important Elements to Consider for Your Addition
There are important factors to consider while planning your master bedroom addition. Determining what you want for each of these design features will help you design your dream room.
- Noise abatement
- Exits and entrances
- Potential views and light exposure
- Maintenance required
Pay Special Attention to Exterior Features
A master bedroom addition should blend seamlessly into the existing architecture of a home. Discuss with your contractor the roofline, facade options, shingles, siding, exterior trims, doors, and windows to find the best plan for incorporating your addition into the rest of your home.
Set Priorities for the Master Bedroom Addition
When starting a remodeling project, it can be helpful to make a list of all of the things you want to include. Identify items that are essential and optional. A master bedroom with a bathroom attached can consist of items such as:
- Flooring for both rooms
- Walk-in or reach-in closets
- Dual sinks and vanities
- Universal design features
- Mirrors and lighting
- Built-in media equipment and controls
Consider Special Needs
When planning your master bedroom addition, consider the specific needs of the bedroom users. Considering factors like height, health conditions, and mobility limitations are especially recommended.
