16 Ways to Reach the Master Suite

Master Bedroom Entrance Design 1: White column entrance

These statement-making white columns create a grand master bedroom entrance.

All major living areas - including the formal dining room - have clear lines of sight to the master bedroom entrance, guaranteeing attention to this upscale design choice.

Master Bedroom Entrance Design 2: Extra-large framed entrance

A framed entrance - sometimes called a "bump out" wall - can create a similar look to columns, while creating a more fluid appearance that blends the master bedroom entrance into the surrounding walls.

Master Bedroom Entrance Design 3: Archway entrance

If you want your master bedroom door to be off-set from the living room, a short arched hallway entrance will give you plenty of separation between rooms.

Master Bedroom Entrance Design 4: Hidden master bedroom entrance

The staircase and master bedroom entrance are each hidden from view in this custom design/build floor plan.

Just around the corner from the living room, you can get a glimpse of the master entrance:

Master Bedroom Entrance Design 5: Private hall entrance

A private hallway leads to the entrance of this master bedroom.

Since the master doorway is out of sight from all main living areas, subtle wall sconces highlight the suite from the inside.

Master Bedroom Entrance 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 Bedroom Entrance Design 13: Simple single door entrance

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.
