The Ideal Location for a Master Bedroom

The Ideal Location for a Master Bedroom

Your bedroom should be a place of peace and relaxation. It’s the one room in your home where you can escape the stresses of daily life and relax. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right location for your master bedroom. In this blog post, we’ll share the benefits of various locations throughout the home and options to consider when buying or building your new home.

There are a few things to consider when choosing the ideal location for your master bedroom.

  • Front of the house versus the back of the house. Often, the master bedroom is at the back of the house for a few reasons. It tends to be the quietest location, with indoor noises sounding more distant. Another reason homeowners prefer it is for the backyard access, especially if you have a nice pool, patio, or yard to enjoy. Streetlights, vehicle noise, less privacy, etc. are a few drawbacks to having a master bedroom located at the front of the home. However, if you live in a more rural area, a master bedroom up front might make sense – it depends on the home’s layout.
  • Downstairs versus upstairs. If you desire a two-story home, you’ll need to determine if you want the master bedroom upstairs or downstairs. While there are plenty of homes with the master bedroom upstairs, sometimes featuring a balcony with a waterfront and/or pool view, a good majority of homeowners decide on a downstairs master bedroom so they can age in place in their home. Eventually, climbing stairs every day will take a toll on your body. But, if your plan is to enjoy the home while you’re young and sell it as you near retirement, a two-story master bedroom may be a good fit.
  • Factor in the lighting and the window situation. If you’re someone who enjoys an abundance of sunlight, you may be more inclined to buy or build a home with the master bedroom on the East or West ends, with windows prominently featured. East-facing rooms have good morning light and will be cooler in the afternoon. West facing rooms have good afternoon daylight but may stay warmer than preferred this time of day. North-facing rooms also receive a decent amount of sunlight. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a darker space for ultimate sleep, you might consider a south-facing master bedroom as they have a lower level of sunlight during parts of the year.
  • Think about the potential noise level. Is it near other bedrooms or rooms that could be used for entertainment purposes? The living room and kitchen for example are primarily where family members eat, watch tv, play games, chat, and so forth. It may be best to have the master bedroom isolated a bit from these rooms. The idea is to create a quiet place for you to get a restful night’s sleep.
  • Proximity to children is another point parents consider, especially when the children are young. You may want to be near them when they are little for convenience and peace of mind. But, will you feel the same when they are older and more independent tweens and teenagers? If you have young children and plan to stay in your home for the long term, consider a layout with the master bedroom having some separation from the other bedrooms. Your master bedroom should be a retreat from your day, and sometimes, your family members!

If you’re thinking about building a new home or you’re in the early stages of home buying, evaluate the master bedroom’s placement in the layout. Also, make sure it’s large enough to comfortably fit a bed and all your furniture. Don’t settle for a master bedroom that doesn’t meet your criteria.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
