The modern-day master bedroom is far more than just a place to sleep. Even if it doesn't get the amount of foot traffic of a home's common areas, it shouldn't be neglected.
"The bedroom is getting to be a multifunctional room," said Stephanie Klautzer, owner and designer of VoilÃ¡ Interiors. "Lately, clients want more out of their bedrooms. Mini kitchens for morning coffee and tea service with sinks, water and microwaves, as well as, stackable washer/dryers are trending."
When embarking on a master bedroom design, the first step is to determine the function of the room.
"One of the biggest mistakes that people make is not measuring the room before they make purchases," says Patricia Kay, owner and designer at Patricia Kay Interiors, LLC.
