Help with Layout

Posted by Kitchenin2013 (My Page) on

We are having a real hard time coming up with a reasonable floor plan for a remodeled master suite -- we're faced with a few constraints, the entrance to the room and the locations of the shower and the slider have to stay the same.

I produced a few alternatives to this layout (the current is probably version 12), that included a hallway to the room, with a combined bathroom and closet. Locations of the doors to the bathroom and closet varied quite a bit. In the end, my husband and I weren't comfortable with the number of doors and entrances to the bedroom as we felt like it reduced the amount of livable space. We're so desperate for help that we've tried to post on multiple locations: Here's our discussion on Houzz, see link below.

We're open to all suggestions. Thank you again in advance!

RE: Help with Layout

I don't like walking through the bathroom to the bedroom. Given your constraints of bathroom in the upper left (because of current plumbing) and bedroom in the upper right (because of sliding glass door), the least of the evils is to put the closet below the bathroom, as in your original design on houzz. Yeah, hallways are wasted space, but not as bad as a wonky layout like the above. Your choice on whether the door opens into the bedroom or into the hallway. I'd pick the bedroom, as that gives you more hanging space. If you pick the hallway, make sure it swings in, to avoid blocking the hall.
