16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (2022)

The master bedroom is one of the most important places in your home, and you should have the best layout possible. There are 16 layout options in particular that are worth exploring. Let’s take a look at some key factors you might want to incorporate to make your master bedroom a dream come true!

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (1)

Layouts for master bedroom floor plans can vary significantly. They range from a simple bedroom that contains just a bed and wardrobes in one room to more elaborate master suites that include the bedroom, a master bathroom, a walk-in closet, a dressing room, and maybe even an office.

Although you typically only have a few furniture pieces to factor into your master suite floor plan, these are usually some of the largest in your entire home. This can make deciding on a layout for your primary bedroom especially difficult. Not to mention, the size and orientation of the master bedroom can add on additional challenges.

You’re likely going to want to spend a lot of time in your master suite so it’s important that you take the time to design the layout appropriately. One of the best ways to approach designing a layout for your master suite floor plan is to limit the number of furnishings, patterns, and accessories. As your main space for unwinding and resting, you want the room to have a relaxing atmosphere – which cannot be achieved with overcrowding, busy patterns, and too many decorations.

Master Suite Floor Plans

With that said, let’s take a look at just a few of the many ways that you can plan the layout of your master bedroom in the form of 11 master suite floor plans plus 5 bonus en-suite bathroom addition floorplans.

1. Primary Suite and California Room

The key to a successfully designed master suite is a thoughtful design that brings luxury features to any home, regardless of the size. That way, those home buyers who enjoy watching HGTV can obtain the upscale lifestyle they desire in a home that they can afford. This layout can be adapted to fit the master suite in your home, whether you’re remodeling or working on a new construction.

The room in this layout is generously sized that creates an open floor plan by offering a nice retreat from the rest of the home. It captures the essence of a luxury resort with natural lighting, views, and a spa-style master bathroom. The major draw to this layout is the California room situated off of the primary suite, with sliding doors that can be tucked into the wall to create one massive indoor/outdoor sanctuary.

2. Master Suite with Privacy Entry and Direct Access to Laundry

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (4)

This layout is designed to offer an open, spacious feel and also maximize ventilation and natural light. Both the bedroom and sitting area have windows on three sides of the home, allowing for ample natural light and optimal brightness throughout the daylight hours.

The key features of this design are storage and function, with two separate spacious walk-in closets, a linen closet in the master bath, and direct access to the laundry room. This design also features an entry vestibule for added privacy, and a large bathroom with separate vanities, an extensive shower setup, a separate toilet room, and a jacuzzi tub.

3. Dual Master Suites

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (5)

Let’s face it: There are some homeowners who prefer not to sleep in the same bedroom as their spouse. That is perfectly okay and we are not here to judge – rather, we are here to offer an option that can suit these unique needs. Whether it’s a noise sleep apnea device, different sleep patterns, or varying room temperature preferences, there are many reasons why you and your spouse may want your own master suites in the same house.

In this layout, you can both have your own space but still be near each other and share a primary bath and walk-in closet. This example displays a floor plan with equal dual primary suites. Everything else is shared including the dressing area, closet, and primary bath with freestanding tub, dual vanities, and garden shower.

4. Master Suite with Indoor-Outdoor Connectivity

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (6)

By strategically positioning your master suite at the rear of your home you can take full advantage of stunning views – especially if you live on a body of water. In this floor plan, the master bedroom is placed on the first floor of the home and at the rear. This location is ideal for both empty nesters or families with teenage children.

Access to an outdoor, private courtyard is done through retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The master bathroom is a generous size, including double vanities, a tub, and a shower. Just beyond the bathroom is an extensive walk-in closet that offers nearly 28 feet of hanging space. Finally, a large laundry room near the master suite offers convenience and spaciousness for folding clothes, or even doing craft projects.

5. Master Suite Addition with Corner Bathroom

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (7)

In this floor plan, an entire master suite is built onto the existing home as a major addition. The master bedroom is large, with a collection of windows that offer plenty of natural light to brighten the space every morning. There are dual sinks in the master bathroom, a corner soaking bathtub, a private toilet room, and a separate shower cubicle.

The walk-in closet is also very extensive and features ample space for hanging clothes and also storing linens. There’s also a small linen closet in the bathroom as well.

6. Modest Master Bedroom

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (8)

This floor plan features a relatively simple master bedroom but is ideal for those with less space to work with. The bedroom itself is large enough to fit a king-size bed with a nightstand on either side. Positioned right off of the bedroom is the master bathroom which contains all the necessities. It has a separate shower and bathtub, a toilet with a privacy partition wall, and dual sinks.

The walk-in closet is spacious and features sliding doors to maximize the space in the bedroom, bathroom, and closet. The lack of a swinging door avoids any issues with reducing the space in the bathroom by the dual sinks.

7. Entry Vestibule Leading to Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (9)

In this floor plan, the master suite is entered via a vestibule which has three doors – one leading to the closet, one to the bedroom, and the third leading to the bathroom. This setup is ideal for couples who are on different schedules, allowing one individual to get up and go about their day without disturbing the other person sleeping.

The plan has a standard sized bath and a nice sized walk-in closet, complete with plenty of space for a dressing table. Whereas, the bedroom is appropriately sized to fit just the essentials – the bed and a set of nightstands.

8. Dual Purpose Vestibule

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (10)

With this arrangement, the vestibule doubles as a walk-in closet with wardrobes on either side of the entryway. There are two-bedroom doors positioned at the head of the bed. While this type of setup may compromise the feeling of safety in a traditional standalone bedroom, it offers a sense of privacy when in a suite setting.

However, you could always flip the bed to the opposite wall if this is a concern. The bathroom in this floor plan offers dual sinks and a separate bathroom and shower. Though, you could argue to swap the bathroom and shower, to keep the area that is more of a wet zone at the end of the bathroom.

9. Hotel Room Master Layout

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (11)

This is a floor plan you’re likely very familiar with, as it is very reminiscent of a standard hotel room layout. The setup allows enough space for a generously sized bed, seating area, and dresser. Though, there is minimal closet space and a very small bathroom. It may not be the most ideal setup, but this layout does make good use of a small space.

10. Hotel Room Master Suite

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (12)

This example is reminiscent of a much more luxurious hotel suite. Both the bathroom and the dressing area is much more spacious. The bathroom has a shower and a tub, dual sinks, and even a separate room for the toilet. Whereas, the dressing room offers the option of having it left open or closed off with sliding doors (as indicated in the floor plan).

The master bedroom area is expansive and likely large enough to house a king-size bed. With large windows on two sides of the room, this layout also offers plenty of natural light.

11. Master Suite with Bowed Windows and Ample Storage Space

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (13)

The above master suite layout is a stunning and well-thought-out floor plan. The entryway to the suite opens up into the bedroom area, which is spacious enough for a king bed and seating area. Passing through the bedroom into another hallway allows you to access both the bathroom and the closet.

The master bathroom is a classic and visually balanced layout that is spacious, but still very efficient. You’ll also notice an abundance of storage throughout this floor plan, including an exceptionally large master walk-in closet.

Bowed window walls in both the bedroom and bathroom add architectural dimension and visual interest to the entire master suite.

En-Suite Bathroom Addition

Depending on your remodeling plans, you may be in the position to simply add an en suite bathroom to an existing space. Or, perhaps you’re thinking about using a space next to your existing master bedroom to add a bathroom or closet and create a full master suite.

If this describes your situation, this can be achieved in a couple of different ways:

1. Corner Fixtures

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (14)

First, this layout transforms a corner of the room into a very compact bathroom. The only way this is possible is by using specific fixtures that fit into these corners.

2. Corner Fixtures and Walk-In Closet

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (15)

With this option, the wardrobe space is squared off to create a walk-in closet. Although the door swings into the bedroom conflicts with the closet door slightly, this may be preferable to having closet doors that open straight into the side of the bed. Also, the sliding closet door helps to limit any major door swing problems.

3. Larger Side Bathroom

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (16)

If you’d prefer to have a slightly larger bathroom, this option is for you. Although you’ll have to sacrifice closet space, you’ll only need one corner fixture and your bathroom will be much more spacious. As an added bonus, you can install a double door for the entryway to increase the comfortability of the space.

4. Strip of Space for Bathroom

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (17)

In this design, a strip of space is taken to create a bathroom. The bathroom “strip” is positioned perpendicular to the wall of wardrobes. To make the layout a bit more compact, sliding doors can be used on the wardrobes. However, using sliding doors would mean that the shower would need to be slightly smaller to accommodate.

5. Opposite Bathroom and Wardrobes

16 Best Master Suite Floor Plans (with Dimensions) | Upgraded Home (19)

(Video) Floor Plan Design TUTORIAL

Finally, instead of having the wall of wardrobes at the foot of the bed, you can place them across from the bathroom. Having the bathroom and wardrobe on opposite walls limits your closet space slightly but will have no impact on the size of the bathroom. That way, you can choose to have either sliding doors or doors that swing open on the closet and it won’t affect the bathroom at all.
