In previous posts in my series on trends in the luxury market, I covered the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Here, I’m discussing one of the most important spaces in the home: the primary suite. I’ve seen some truly incredible primary suites lately, and I’m excited to discuss some of the features that are trending. Here’s a look at how primary bedrooms are using the following elements of design:
Dual Primary Suites
In the $2 million+ market, dual primary suites aren’t uncommon and are often highly desirable. Separate bedrooms are no longer taboo, and quite frankly, make a lot of sense. As you might have inferred, dual primary suites are usually the same or similar sizes, and each room offers all the perks of a singular primary bedroom. Although dual primary bedrooms are typically adjacent to each other, they can also be on opposite sides of the home for added privacy.
Wall of Windows
High ceilings and large windows can enhance just about any space, and are especially nice to have in the primary suite. In the Boulder area, homeowners will want to relish our city’s stunning views, so an abundance of windows in the main bedroom isn’t just a trend–it’s a timeless investment.
Luxe Bathroom Details
The primary bedroom more often than not has an en suite bathroom, and this space isn’t complete without features fit for a spa. With today’s modern technology, homeowners can fully appreciate the impact of upscale details. In the primary bedroom’s adjoined bathroom, look for luxe fixtures like heated tiles, steam showers, and a soaking tub. Heated towel bars are also a nice touch.
A Cozy Fireplace
Fireplaces are no longer just seen in the living room. If you love the idea of a fireplace in a non-traditional setting, consider adding one to the primary suite. There’s something so comforting about a cozy fireplace, and having one in the primary bedroom is one of those touches that you’re sure to enjoy for years to come (and especially during the chill of winter).
The primary bedroom is where residents can retreat to relax and recharge. This area of the home should feel like a respite from life’s stressors, so it’s crucial to invest in design that promotes a feeling of wellbeing. Whether you’re ready to make on-trend upgrades to your home before selling, or you simply enjoy finding inspiration for future projects, stay tuned into this series–more coming soon!
