Trends in Master Bedrooms for 2013
2013- Master Bedrooms
The trends in homes and renovations coming in to 2013, a lot of the things that we did in the 2012 construction year were the same as in previous years. But there were things that became trends in 2012 with more and more home owners opting for them, and this creating the wave that is the trends in 2013. I am focusing on master bedrooms and their trends.
Here is a list of the trends that have stayed the same over the last several years;
• Master bedrooms have become master suites that encompass bedroom, walk in closet, make-up area and ensuite washroom.
• The master bedroom portion is getting larger every year.
• People opting to put their master bedroom on the first floor of their two story home.
• Carpet is still the most desirable flooring in the master bedroom.
• Custom blinds and drapes so that people are able to sleep past the rising morning sun.
• More windows are being added every year.
• Individual lights on each side of the bed so that the user can control the amount of light once they are in bed. Some of these are table lights and some of them are a hinged wall sconce.
Here a list of the new trends happening in master bedrooms;
• More and more lights are being added to master bedrooms as accent lighting, these are usually pot lights.
• With master bedrooms growing larger seating areas are being created as a room within a room. This is turning the master bedroom into an almost self contained oasis away from the rest of the house.
• Gas fireplaces are being installed for a more comfortable feel, romance and an extra source of heat on those cold winter nights.
• Second story master bedrooms are getting decks and balconies, this works two ways; giving the master bedroom more glass with patio doors and also larger windows.
• Ceiling details such as coffered ceilings and crown molding are being added to help give the room more character.
• Flat screen TV’s with all the components stored in another part of the house are a growing trend so that people can relax, watch a movie or live TV without ever leaving the room.
These are just some the new trends in master bedrooms in today’s new custom homes.
