Master Suite Entry Designs
2017 New Home Trends - Raleigh Custom Home Builder Tips
From grand columns to inviting nooks, we'll show you 16 ways to design the entrance to your master suite.
While some of these entrance designs may depend on your floor plan layout, other can be added to almost any home.
Master Suite Entry Design 1: White column entrance
White columns create an impressive passageway to this master suite. This entrance, visible from all major living areas, is sure to capture the attention of friends and family.
You will more likely see a white column entrance to a first floor master suite, where it is most visible.
Master Suite Entry Design 2: Framed entrance
A framed entrance, also called a "bump out" wall, will draw your eyes towards the master suite entrance, while blending it more easily into the surrounding walls.
A framed entrance such as this will act more as a subtle surprise than an attention-seeking design.
Master Suite Entry Design 3: Archway entrance
A graceful archway gives the master suite entrance a bit of separation from the living areas.
The archway in this home complements the arched openings in the built-in entertainment center.
Master Suite Entry Design 4: Hidden entrance
The staircase and master suite are each hidden from view in this custom design/build floor plan, a version of The Carwile.
Just around the corner from the living room, you can get a glimpse of the master suite entrance, which is framed with extra wide trim.
Master Suite Entry Design 5: Private hall entrance
A private hallway leads to this master bedroom, which is tucked to the back side of the home plan.
Subtle wall sconces highlight the suite from the inside. See more photos of wall sconces for the master suite in this Ideabook.
Master Suite Entry Design 6: Barrel vault hallway entrance
A custom barrel vault hallway - designed to mirror the barrel vault foyer - leads the way to this master suite.
Bead board ceilings wrap around these two barrel vaults, painted in white.
Master Suite Entry Design 7: Double entry doors
A double door design leads to this master bedroom. While a two-door design tends to be a "love it" or "hate it" feature, home buyers also like the flexibility of a second door.
When the master suite doors are open, a built-in art niche is visible to the main living areas.
Master Suite Entry Design 8: Arched hallway to dual door entrance
An arched entrance leads to a short hallway - creating a intricately beautiful entrance.
Master Suite Entry Design 9: Art niche hallway
While an art niche is located inside two of master suites above, this art nook takes center stage in the angled hallway leading to the master.
Master Suite Entry Design 10: Beside the laundry room
A second floor laundry room is a top request in homes with all bedrooms located upstairs.
In this design/build Stanton Home, the master suite entrance is just feet from the laundry room, making your daily chores much easier.
Master Suite Entry Design 11: Portico design
A portico-style entrance with hanging light leads to the master suite in this Raleigh custom home.
Master Suite Entry Design 12: Step-up entry
Varying your ceiling height is a design technique custom home builders use to subtly create more interest.
A raised ceiling on the first floor creates a step-up room on the second floor. In this home, the master suite has a step up entry - making it stand out above the loft.
The hardwood step matches the staircase design.
Master Suite Entry Design 13: Simple single door entry
A single door entrance is a simpler design - often found in homes with the master suite located on the second floor - is ideal for those who want to de-emphasize the master suite location on the first floor.
Master Suite Entry Design 14: Aging in Place and wheelchair accessible entry
This master suite is fully handicapped accessible, with a widened doorway designed for easy wheelchair entry.
No matter what aging in place features you're looking for, Stanton Homes has the knowledge, expertise, and experience to build you a home to suit your lifestyle and needs.
Master Suite Entry Design 15: Arched opening
An arched opening leads to the master suite in this Frank Betz floor plan.
Master Suite Entry Design 16: Beside a pocket office or built-in desk
A small alcove hosts the master suite entrance and a built-in desk - each tucked out of view from central living areas.
This modern floor plan design integrates work and home spaces - with the master bedroom just feet from a built-in work zone.
