Frequently asked questions

Does adding a master suite make sense?

Do you long for a more spacious home? Of course you do, and that is why homeowners across San Diego love the thrilling potential of room additions. We can bring a breath of fresh air and breathe more space into your home.

Investing in a master suite addition in San Diego is a logical step for the forward-thinking homeowner for at last two reasons: by increasing your square footage, your master suite addition will effectively up your quality of life and bump up your property’s resale value.

Lars Architecture and Construction can make beautiful things happen by creating and executing your conveniently customized suite addition design. Master bedroom suites, for instance, carry an air of exclusivity, making them the most desirable additions to a house, all the more so if you go out and decide to include special luxury features such as a fireplace.

On top of that, there is an exciting variety of suite styles to choose from, so you will have no problem finding one that perfectly fits your lifestyle and your household needs.

How much value does adding a master suite add?

No wonder house hunters’ eyes twinkle when they come across a house with a luxury master suite addition. It can add extraordinary value to a property, just like a fresh bathroom addition to your San Diego home.

But, how do you create the ultimate master suite so you can be certain that nothing slips through the cracks? Here’s our handy checklist:


The number one concern and priority when planning a master suite addition is the location. It is a critical decision, instrumental in coordinating the suite with the rest of your home, so you should take your time before making the decision.

Our architects will help you make this crucial decision by helping you understand if and how the new suite will relate to the surrounding landscape, whether it belongs on the ground floor, how you can best preserve your privacy and how to optimize the circulation of the layout so as to ensure balance between the rest of the plan for your San Diego home and the suite addition.

Access to the outdoors

After we have positioned your suite with the above considerations in mind, we need to define your access to the room. Although it is still somewhat unconventional to have direct access to the bedroom from the outside, the latest trends in master suite addition design is just that: if your master bedroom is located on the ground level, we can design an entrance such as a modern sliding exterior door that opens onto your patio or garden for added convenience and privacy.


Everyone wants a brightly lit living room, but no one wants their bedroom to be basking in the sun from the break of dawn. A darker room makes for a sound sleep environment. However, your carefully planned San Diego master suite should also be versatile, which is why you do need some natural light in it. We can outfit your master bedroom with remote-controlled window coverings, so you can enjoy a healthy balance between light and dark.


You do not need to have an over-the-top Pacific Beach or La Jolla oceanside property to enjoy a breathtaking view. If your new suite is oriented toward the yard, with a little time and effort you can make yourself a landscape or garden right outside so you can take in the relaxing view that truly speaks to you from the comfort of your bedroom whenever you feel like it.


For many homeowners across San Diego, having a fireplace installed as part of your master suite addition is the stuff of fantasy. This timeless design element can be the perfect focal point that can be as luxurious and intricate or as subtle and discreet as you’d like. We will coordinate your fireplace with the rest of your suite design, in accordance with your taste and desired room vibe.


This may seem like somewhat of an unusual consideration at first glance, but think about it: how do you neglect the design potential of your bedroom ceiling when you will be looking at it ever so often, night in, night out? The ceiling can be crafted with astonishing attention to detail and in a variety of finishes. Even a flat ceiling can provide interest if you put time and effort into it.


Get creative with the lighting in your master bedroom to add the perfect finishing touches to your master suite addition design. Clever choices of lighting can accentuate specific design elements and enhance overall suite appeal.

Artificial lighting, candles included, offers an amazing array of playful opportunities for an intimate, romantic atmosphere. Dimmer switches are another delightful yet practical innovation for the bedroom.


Now that television no longer plays such a pivotal role in our daily lives, you may not want to have a TV set in your bedroom. But if you do opt for this amenity, you can have a conveniently placed built-in TV. If your music is your drug of choice, you can install strategically placed wireless speakers in two adjacent corners of the room.


Last but not least, you can personalize your new San Diego master bedroom with a carefully selected theme and create a coherent, peaceful bedroom with your name on it.

What is a good size for a master suite?

Homes in the past two or three decades were not designed to bring homeowners superior comfort: rooms are placed in close proximity and room sizes are often inadequate for the modern way of life.

But now that large, open-space homes are the hot trend that’s here to stay, there is no better way to make things right than to get a master suite addition, ideal for resting and unwinding. So what is a good size for a master suite?

A master suite addition should be at least 400 square feet as it needs to incorporate the following essential elements and features:

  • Spacious bedroom
  • Walk-in closet
  • En-suite bathroom (double-sink vanity, designer toilet, walk-in shower, soaking tub and premium fixtures included)

Optionally, your master suite addition in San Diego can include a comfortable sitting area, like a mini version of your living room.

How long does it take to build a master suite addition?

We’ll devise your custom-made master suite addition services in San Diego so we can expedite the process and enable you to enjoy your new suite addition as soon as possible. Your exact project completion timeline depends on your preferred addition project size in terms of square footage and scope. You will receive a precise estimate after we perform your in-home consultation.
