In our “Layout Guides” series you’ll find layout solutions for rooms of all shapes and sizes. Finding the right layout for your room can be the trickiest part of interior design! This week we’re looking at two different ideas for a super large master bedroom with tons of open space.
- The Space: A huge, open master bedroom
- The Style: Classic Rustic and Industrial Rustic
- The Challenge: Designing a master bedroom layout that makes use of all the open space.
Your bedroom might not get a ton of foot traffic, but it is where you do most of your important work—sleeping and recharging for the day ahead! Designing a master bedroom layout can be hard with a small bedroom—but it can be even more challenging with a super large bedroom! All that open space can feel daunting… But with a little creativity, you can find a master bedroom layout that makes use of all the open space. Check out these 2 ideas for a super large master bedroom and get some ideas for yours!
Master Bedroom Layout Idea #1: Seating and Sleeping Areas
Master bedroom layout #1 blends rustic design with a very classic formal look. It’s an eclectic twist that creates a really cozy, yet elegant look in the bedroom. It has a cottage vibe with tons of rustic materials, traditional style furniture, and lots of classic underpinnings to make it more stately. The soft textures and rustic accents make it an easy, breezy feminine space with plenty of countryside charm.
The key elements:
Queen Bed along the short wall. We chose to put the queen bed on the short wall vs the super long wall. This helps section off the room and create a cozier sleeping space – and there’s still room for 2 nightstands on either side of the bed.
Lots of storage. With a room as large as this, there’s no reason not to have ample storage! We used two full dressers and an armoire. That way you have plenty of space to tuck away your wardrobe, unused bedding, laundry, etc. and keep your bedroom clean and tidy.
Seating area. This master bedroom layout also features a cozy reading/conversation nook. This is a great addition to any bedroom and gives you a space to relax that is in a totally different zone. The rugs help separate the space so you feel like you have two rooms in one.
Will this layout work for you? Yes if you…
- Love soft, feminine vibes with a touch of rustic charm and elegance.
- Need a bedroom escape full of relaxing, calming energy and color scheme.
- Want two distinct areas in your bedroom—one for sleeping and one for reading/relaxing.
- Need extra storage to make your room clutter-free, crisp, and oh-so clean.
- Want your window view unobstructed for maximum sunlight and views.
Master Bedroom Layout Idea #2: Bedroom with a Home Office
Master bedroom layout #2 features a more industrial take on rustic style. This design is slightly edgier, offering a more masculine version of the rustic look. It uses raw, rugged materials, like metal and unfinished wood, to give it a cozy, cabin-like feel with a downtown twist.
All the furniture features a contemporary vibe, with sharp angles, straight lines, and no decorative ornament to be found. The bold patterns and high contrast color palette help add visual texture and make the overall style feel tailored and cohesive.
The key elements:
Bed on the long wall. Placing the bed in front of the windows on the long wall leaves the entire front of the room wide open for other purposes. This is better if you like your sleeping spot tucked away from the main entrance for a more secluded vibe.
TV viewing. Having the bed positioned here is also ideal for TV viewing against the opposite wall. We opted against using a tall bed frame for this layout so it wouldn’t block any light or view from the window.
Desk area. This layout left plenty of space in the front of the room for a desk/work area—perfect if you need a home office and don’t have a separate room for it. We used a leaning wall shelf with a built-in desk to stay in line with the minimalist look, but there’s enough room for any desk of your choice! Just try to steer clear of heavy, clunky furniture with a style like this.
Tons of storage. The master bedroom layout also allows for tons of storage in addition to the desk. We were able to fit two dressers in addition to the nightstands, desk, and even some extra seating with the bench at the end of the bed!
Will this layout work for you? Yes if…
- You want to watch TV in bed. The bed is ideally situated across from the TV for watching your favorite shows before the lights go off.
- Want distinct areas in your space. Here two area rugs create two rooms in one—a sleeping area and a workspace.
- You love raw materials and minimal ornamentation.
- Cool, high-contrast industrial spaces are your jam. Bonus points if you love anything that makes a bold statement!
