The house usually consists of three main rooms: the master bedroom, the children’s bedroom and the guest bedroom. The master bedroom, also known as a primary bedroom, is referred to as the room where the “master” of the house rests and sleeps. Many people frequently interchange the use of “master bedroom” and “master suite.” Little do they know that there is a difference between them.
What Is a Master Bedroom?
Most interior designers and real estate agents would say that the master bedroom is the largest room in the house. Since this room is typically reserved for the head of the household, it has the best location out of all the bedrooms in the house. Also, it’s most likely that the master bedroom has the best view of the outdoors.
On top of bigger closet space, a master bedroom usually includes two closets. There is also a doorknob that locks from the inside. However, not all master bedrooms have the same features. When some listings claim that a house has a master bedroom, it means that it has a larger room with no attached bathroom. The new working hours in the 1900s gave people more time to relax at home. As such, larger rooms for the head of the household became more popular.
What Is a Master Suite?
A master suite has all the features of a master bedroom and more. Architects also refer to this room as “owner’s suite”. A master suite is a large bedroom with a private en suite bathroom, which can be directly accessed from the bedroom. In older houses, though, the room doesn’t offer enough space for anything other than a private bathroom.
Depending on the lifestyle of the homeowners, a master suite includes a foyer, walk-in closet, fireplace, sitting space or even a private balcony. If the room is filled with amenities, these spaces are also referred to as “luxury” or “executive” master suites and may range from 300 to 600 square feet. Additionally, a master suite offers more privacy to the owners than other rooms.
