7 Fantastic Master Bedroom Plans for Your Custom Home

Your master bedroom is totally unique from the rest of your custom home.

Remodeling that master bedroom is your chance to create a customized sanctuary based on your individual style, interests, and preferences.

And your fellow homeowners agree. 

According to a recent Houzz trends report, 83% of Canadian homeowners choose to remodel in order to improve the "look, feel, flow, and layout" of their homes. 

And, the best part?

There are so many great ideas for master bedroom plans to suit your lifestyle, whether you're a bookworm, athlete, or tech quiz.

That's why we're counting down 10 of our favorite master bedroom plans for your custom home right now!

The Bachelor Pad

We just had to start this list off with a nod to the classic bachelor pad.

Plus, we’re loving the trends we’re seeing right now in bachelor pad design!

These are a few of our favorites:

  • Exposed brick walls.
  • Exposed “industrial” ceilings
  • Fireplaces
  • Platform beds
  • Beds with built-in night stands and shelving.
  • Minimalist workstations
  • Open bathroom plan

Bachelor pad color palettes tend to skew toward dark hues, but don’t be afraid to throw in some splashes of color. You can do this with bed throws, rugs, and wall art. 

Modern Art Gallery

This is for the homeowners who want to be creatively inspired 24/7.

With the right furnishings, accents, and color palette, you can transform your master bedroom into your own personal art gallery.

These are some of our favorite trends right now for bedrooms inspired by fine art:

  • Vibrant modern art paintings with textured surfaces
  • Copper lighting fixtures
  • Colorful matte-finish pillows
  • Clean, white minimalist walls
  • Chrome accents
  • Exposed ceilings 

As for electronics, less is more in a modern art bedroom. Try to go for super flat screen wall TVs and organize your wiring so it's not in plain sight. 

Go Green In Your Custom Home

If it’s still creativity that you crave, then you have to go green—literally.

Studies find that the color green inspires motivation, improvement, and inventiveness, making this shade ideal for artists and tech professionals alike.

Consider these tips for your new green master bedroom:

  • Fresh apple green furnishings
  • Natural wood walls and flooring
  • Lush green wall art
  • Hanging plants
  • Bamboo decor  
  • Indoor waterfall fountain

This is also a perfect opportunity to integrate more eco-friendly elements into your custom home, such as natural hemp wastebaskets, kinetic solar sculptures, and upcycled furniture.

Breezy Seaside Master Bedroom

Why not escape to the beach every day?

An open master bedroom plan coupled with beachy shades, ocean-inspired furnishings, and plenty of light can turn your bedroom into a true getaway.

Feeling like you're right near the beach inspires calmness and clarity of mind, making seaside-inspired master bedrooms ideal for yogis and homeowners who want a relaxing sanctuary.

  • Conch shell decor
  • Sand art sculptures
  • Creamy-colored pottery
  • Nautical accents
  • Marine or maritime wall art
  • Aquariums

This theme works particularly well with master bedrooms that receive swaths of natural sunlight. You can also recreate this seaside feel even in winter with the right color palette and furnishings. 

The Hobbyist

Do you love to sew, make crafts, and tinker with retro electronics in your spare time?

Why not devote your master bedroom to your favorite hobby?

We’re seeing some truly innovative master bedroom plans that revolve around “maker culture” and hands-on hobbies.

These are some of our favorite trends right now:

  • Sewing machine tables upcycled into workstations or tables for afternoon tea.
  • Fabric inspired wallpaper
  • Patchwork bed throws
  • Natural wood flooring and cabinetry
  • Birdcage decor
  • Bird motifs

You may also want to consider vintage furnishings like shag carpets, retro loveseat sofas, and porcelain “folk art” sculptures.

Tech Geek

If you live on the cutting edge of tech, you need a master bedroom to match.

And now you have the resources to make it happen.

There have been major advancements in custom home design that accommodate the intersection of technology and lifestyle.

These are just a few of the awesome trends we’re seeing right now:

  • Illuminated platform beds
  • Digital fireplaces
  • Geometric storage compartments
  • “Matrix style” digital wall art
  • Wall projectors
  • Integrated touchscreen technology

Coupled with high-tech controls for your custom home, you can create a full-fledged "smart home" if you wanted to. 

In fact, according to that same Houzz report, 17% of Canadian homeowners intend to remodel their home to accommodate new technology. 

Make A Statement with Walk-In Closets

This is for all the designers and fashionistas out there.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of your master bedroom? Your walk-in closet, right?

Good, because we love master bedrooms with open floor plans that aren't afraid to embrace their walk-in closets to the fullest.

Open "loft style" master bedrooms with movable clothes racks speaks directly to professional wardrobe stylists, models, and fashion enthusiasts.

But you don't have to have an open floor plan to make a serious statement with your walk-in closet.

These are just a few of our favorite walk-in closet designs for today’s master bedrooms:

  • You can't fail with classic rich mahogany walk-in closets complete with mirrors, exquisitely carved shoe cubbies, and islands to lay out professional attire.
  • Go high tech with shiny chrome compartments, integrated technology, and voice activated controls.
  • Embrace your retro side with bright turquoise Interiors, decorative vintage storage boxes, Standing mirrors, and pictures of pop icons from the 1950’s.
  • Install a lovely french boutique-style walk-in closet with a hanging chandelier, soft pink walls, french carved vanity, and delicate drapery. 
  • Keep it simple yet modern with clear plexiglass partitions, rich ebony hardwood, touch lights, and a simple table in lieu of an island.
