Hmm... lots of topics to discuss about ..right... ! Lets start with " Master - Bedroom" or "Bedroom"..

As we all the know .. bedroom is the most private and relaxing zone of any occupants of the residence..therefore it is very important to make proper placement and planning of bedroom. Large proportion of bedroom floor area is covered by furniture. Windows and doors account for a large percentage of walls and partition spaces & proper location of doors , windows and closets are important. Aside from sleeping bedroom is the center of dressing and undressing activities,so privacy factor is the most important of all. Apart from all these an inter-relation exists between dressing  storage of cloths , bedroom requirement  covers and cloths etc. so ample of space is required for storage.

All the measurements are in (feet & inches)

Minimum Bedroom size : 10'-0" X 12'0" in exclusive of closets.
Master Bedroom size : 12'0" X 16'0" in exclusive of closets.

  • A master bedroom should at-least accommodate the following :

Furniture Clearance : 
  • 42" at one side or foot of bed.
  • 6" for dressing between side of bed and side of dressing or chest.

  • Household composition may determine location.

For privacy and sound control.. one should take these steps 
  • Zoning within houses.
