We purchased our brand new home a few years ago but the interior was plain and we wanted to make it more luxurious and give it a more modern/contemporary design. Last year we renovated several rooms in the house - two of which were designed right here on ArcBazar! This year we want to renovate the remaining rooms.
The goal of this project is to design our master bedroom suite.This includes our master bedroom, its walk in closet and bathroom.
Here are our list of requirements:
- The room should accommodate a king size bed.
- There must be a way to darken the room (curtains or shades?)
- There must be some sitting space in the room other than the bed (love seat, lounger, bench, recliner?).
- Ideally the room should contain some storage space (since the walk in closet is rather small). This could be in the form of a dresser or wardrobe or armoire or something else. We would like to use this space for storing both clothes as well as blankets and pillows.
- Space for a TV is not required - but if you design a TV into the room that will be ok.
- The room must contain some ceiling interest. The room has a very tall ceiling - reaching 15 feet in places - so I would like to make good use of it!
Ideas to consider:
1. Wall art
2. Wall panels
4. Floor lamp
- The master bathroom must contain HIS and HERS sinks.
- There must be some storage space to store shower products, medicine, toiletries and towels.
- There must be a makeup table for my wife (this would ideally be in the bathroom but could also be in the bedroom) - with a mirror and plenty of lights.
- There must be a Jacuzzi - but it doesn't have to be too large - our current Jacuzzi is large but it takes too much space in the bathroom.
- There must be a shower box. Our current shower box is way to small (about 3' x 3')! We would like a much larger shower.
Walk in closet
- The closet should feel luxurious and make good use of lights.
- We need space for plenty of hangers.
- There must be some specific storage space for shoes, socks, underwear and belts.
- The room must contain an ironing board.
I have attached Sketchup drawings of the room. All measurements are accurate to 1/4 of an inch. I have also attached JPGs of each wall with measurements in feet and inches.The blueprint of the house is attached as well but dimensions ARE NOT AS ACCURATE as the ones in my Sketchup project file.
The hardwood floors are in great condition and we want to preserve them as is. The bathroom floor and wall titles I want to replace. Ideally we would not want to move or change the windows in any room. The bedroom and bathroom doors are brand new and I love how they look (http://doorsandbeyond.com/avanti-interior-door-black-apricot) so I do not want to replace these two doors.
We are interested in having a clean modern looking room. When I say modern I think a contemporary design leaning toward modern is a good description of what we are looking for. We also want to increase the resale value of the home, so we don't want to get anything too "unique" that will scare away potential buyers in the future.
It might be beneficial for you to view some pictures of the rooms we renovated last year (TV room, office, baby room) so you can see the kind of look we are aiming for.The link is available here:
We are looking for some architecture interest including a nice looking ceiling and perhaps some wall interest (nooks or crannies for art or lights?)
We have spent some time on Houzz.com looking for bedrooms, bathrooms and closets that we like. It might be beneficial for you to look at the pictures we’ve saved. The URLs are as follows:
Or you can look at all our ideabooks here:
I want the master suite to look nothing short of fabulous so if there is anything that I have missed, please do not hesitate to ask.
We will evaluate the design on functionality, looks and overall attention to detail. We are very detailed oriented so attention to detail – in the smallest things – is very important to us. This includes location of light switches, types of lighting, closet design, functionality and overall layout of the bedroom, bathroom and closet.
I want people to walk in into the room and say “wow”. The “wow” factor is key. Cost wise EACH room (bedroom, bathroom and walk in closet) should cost under 20k including all built ins and furniture.
In addition to all the items listed below, I would like to get THE 3D MODEL FILES YOU USED TO DESIGN THE ROOM - no matter in which format it is in! If you could please export the files to something that Sketchup can import, that would greatly help me. Currently Sketchup supports the following file types:
- Sketchup file (.skp)
- 3DS file (.3ds)
- DEM file (.dem, .ddf)
- Google earth (.kmz)
- Collada file (.dae)
ALL DIMENSIONS MUST BE EXPRESSED IN IMPERIAL UNITS (inches and feet) - AND NOT in metric units (meters and centimeters). All dimensions should be accurate to a 1/8 of an inch. Please make sure to design in imperial units to avoid fractional converted units - such as 2.57 inches - instead I would like to see: 2 1/2 inches or 2 5/8 of an inch.
