As a home renovator, I’ve always viewed the primary bedroom as more than just a space to roll out a bed and sleep. It’s a personal retreat, a sanctuary where comfort meets functionality, especially in a busy household. Whether it’s a quiet haven or a luxurious escape to unwind, the bedroom plays an important role in our homes.
My Favorite Primary Bedroom Layout Options
Balancing aesthetic preferences with practical requirements in this space is often challenging. To tackle this, I’ve compiled 22 different primary bedroom layouts. Each one is designed to inspire and cater to different needs and styles, offering ideas about how you can transform your own space.
1. Long Hallway with Bath and Balcony
This bedroom layout is perfect for a condo or apartment building. The long hallway allows you a bit of privacy, without taking up too much valuable square footage (sq ft).
The bed is positioned along the side wall, making it a convenient location for both the balcony, and the adjoining spaces. Plus, this primary suite has enough space for a relaxing couch. Or collect laundry, your choice.
2. Large Primary Bathroom with Soaking Tub
Sometimes it is all about the bathroom, which is certainly the case with this unique space. The small space is large enough to accommodate a bed, and at least two dressers, but most of the bedroom is dedicated to the bathroom.
The bath has a shower, toilet, sink, and a spacious corner soaking tub, allowing you to unwind after a tough day.
3. Modern and Private Space with a Balcony
This may be the best layout for you if you want private and dedicated spaces within your bedroom. The door to the bedroom is centered on the wall in a relatively small space.
To the left is a large walk-in closet. To the right is the bed, and balcony beyond. A flat-screen TV is set up on a stand at the foot of the bed. The bathroom is long and narrow and offers a private room for the toilet, with a shower and super functional double-sink vanity.
4. Spacious, Compartmentalized, and Modern
This sprawling primary bedroom layout feels like it goes on for days. This is a big bedroom with a large amount of square footage and dedicated spaces for the bed and every other functional aspect.
The bed is center stage on the near wall and is flooded with light from both windows and a sliding door to the attached balcony. From there, the bedroom angles into the en suite, complete with a dedicated room for the toilet, a separate nook for the shower, and tucked-away closet space.
This primary bathroom is completed with a corner soaking tub and convenient double sinks in the vanity.
5. Practical Layout for Busy Lifestyle
The bedroom layout is both simple and practical. Enter into the first dedicated space in the bedroom and find a corner closet, capable of storing all your clothing and accessories. Continue to the bedroom space and find a bed, dresser, and access to a long, sprawling balcony.
The bathroom attached is simple and streamlined. There is a shower and tub, perfect for when you are running late in the morning and need a quick rinse or want to soak after a long day. This bathroom only has a single sink, which is perfectly alright for this streamlined and modern layout.
6. Room to Work and Sleep
This primary suite gives off a guest bedroom vibe – you have everything you would want in a bedroom. There is room for a large bed, plenty of dressers, and tons of light from the far-wall windows.
Before moving to the bathroom, you pass through a small nook with a workspace, including a desk. Beyond the desk area is a simple, yet functional primary bathroom with a tub/shower, sink, and toilet.
7. Partial Wall Separates Bed from Workspace
This bedroom layout would certainly be the luxury dorm at any college. The bedroom area is large, with plenty of room to have dressers and storage throughout. There is a dedicated workspace with a desk, and a partial wall conveniently separates that from the bed.
The workspace is lit with natural light from the nearby windows. Beyond the bathroom you will find a shower and a corner soaking tub. This bathroom features a roomy double sink vanity as well as a toilet and bidet.
8. Spacious Yet Private Bedroom Layout
If you want to have plenty of room in your primary suite to spread out but still maintain dedicated spaces throughout the bathroom, this floor plan is a great option. The large bedroom area has plenty of valuable floor space to add dressers or storage and a bed.
A convenient corner desk is next to the bed, allowing you to do work from your room without being too overbearing. The bathroom has a tub that can be separated from the rest of the bathroom.
There is also a dedicated toilet room, a double-sink vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet attached to the bathroom.
9. Large Bedroom with Sitting Area
Walking into this bedroom, you will first be greeted with a small seating area, wide enough to fit a vintage chair or two and a loveseat. From there, you will move to the bedroom area of the room with a king-sized bed, side tables and dresser. Windows on two walls draw in plenty of light.
The bathroom also has a window to illuminate the space. The bathroom features a toilet, bidet, large tub, and a single sink vanity.
10. Grand Walk-In Closet with French Doors
This bedroom has almost too much space dedicated to the closet. The large walk-in closet is opened with French doors, giving you plenty of room and storage for your clothing and accessories.
The bedroom space in the primary suite is large enough to feature a king-sized bed, dressers, and room for a couch lm a seating area. The attached bathroom is simple, yet features a tub/shower, toilet, and double sink vanity to allow you to spread out.
11. Large Living Area
This big bedroom’s layout combines a living area and a bedroom. You will have plenty of room to have both a large bed, and a functional sitting space complete with a couch and an accent chair.
A moderately sized walk-in closet with this bedroom layout gives you plenty of room to store your clothing and accessories.
The attached bathroom has a separate room for the double sink vanity and a different room featuring the toilet and shower. This is a convenient layout if two people are trying to get ready at the same time.
12. Functional Yet Reasonable Bedroom
This layout combines the best of all worlds into a functional yet reasonable room. The bedroom layout is large enough to have a bed and a dedicated sitting area with room for an accent chair or two.
There is a walk-in closet, accessible by French doors. Conveniently, the doors to the closet swing inward, maximizing the amount of usable square footage around the bed area. Attached is a small bathroom that includes a tub/shower, sink, and toilet.
13. Long Bedroom with Balcony
This is a great option if you are looking for an elongated bedroom layout. The bed is positioned opposite the door and is centered along the wall. To the left of the bed is a large balcony area, able to offer plenty of light. A large space like this could also benefit from an area rug to break up the space and add a pop of color.
To the right of the bed is a convenient walk-in closet and storage area. The attached bathroom is simple, featuring a tub, sink, and toilet.
14. Angled Bedroom With Separate Soaking Tub
This floor plan is a little different in the sense that you enter the room from an angle, creating a unique area around the bed. While there is a large bedroom area, suitable for a large bed and dresser, there is also a dedicated area for a soaking tub, separate from the bathroom.
The nook for the tub is separated from the bedroom with a partial wall. Entering through an angled door on the far side of the room is the primary bathroom. This room features a shower, toilet, and single-sink vanity.
15. Small Bedroom Layout with Attached Bathroom
This simple bedroom plan maximizes available square footage around the bed. Upon entering the bedroom, you are greeted with a small space featuring a plush chair. The bed is on the wall opposite the entrance.
In lieu of a closet, this layout takes advantage of an entire large wall for storage. This would be a great space to utilize a storage and shelf system for clothing and accessories. Enter the bathroom and find a simple tub/shower, toilet, and single-sink vanity.
16. Small Bedroom Layout with Work Space
If you are looking for a bedroom layout that doesn’t leave a great deal of space for the bedroom, but allocates space to other features, this may be a good option for you. There is just enough space for a bed and a dresser.
At the far end of the bed, there is a small area to have a desk, attached to a full wall storage unit. Comparatively, the attached bathroom is quite large and spacious, featuring a very large tub, toilet, and single sink.
17. Large Bedroom with Balcony and Full Wall Shower
This is a different take on a pretty standard bedroom layout. The bed is positioned opposite the wall with the entrance to the room and borders a large balcony.
There is a U-Shaped walk-in closet that will offer plenty of room for storing clothing and accessories. At first glance, the primary bathroom seems rather standard with a shower, toilet, bidet, and sink.
However, the shower extends the entire wall of the bathroom, giving a larger shower space.
18. Angled Bedroom With Open Bathroom
A different spin on a traditional bedroom, this space is angled and features an open bathroom design. Upon entering the room, you can turn to the right to reach the area around the bed, or left to enter the open bathroom area.
The double-sink vanity and corner soaking tub are open to the bedroom floor plan, with just a partial wall space separating them. The toilet is housed in a separate room giving privacy.
19. Open Floor Plan with Large Jetted Tub
This primary bedroom floor plan has a large and open area for the area around the bed, with enough space to accommodate a couch in the room. There is plenty of room to house two dressers on the partial wall separating the bedroom from the bathroom. The attached bathroom is split, with the large jetted tub to the left, and a private door to house the toilet and sink to the right.
20. Primary Bedroom with Soaking Tub and Reading Chair
With a pretty standard bedroom layout, featuring a large bed and plenty of room for dressers and storage, this plan features an interesting, and large bathroom layout. The left portion of the bathroom features a soaking tub and enough room for a small chair.
Who wouldn’t want to do a little light reading in the bathroom? To the right, you enter a traditional bathroom setting with a toilet, bidet, and corner sink to maximize available space.
21. Large L-Shaped Bedroom and Sprawling Bathroom
Some interior designers say you can never have too much space. This is an extremely large beautiful bedroom layout. The primary suite itself is L-Shaped which gives plenty of space for both seating and a bed facing the bathroom. The bed is positioned on the opposite wall to the bathroom, and the room features plush seating throughout the corners of the room.
The attached primary bathroom features not one, but two tubs, a shower, and a toilet. Still, with all the available space, this bathroom only has a single sink vanity.
22. Practical and Conventional Bedroom Layout
The layout for this design is both practical and rather conventional. The bedroom itself is almost rectangular but features a bump-out in the wall in order to accommodate a dresser or additional storage as well as the bed.
The attached primary bathroom is quite large for space and includes a large, jetted tub, toilet, and single sink.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Set up a Primary Bedroom?
In bedroom layouts, always first make sure that the bed is the focal point and set up in an ideal position. Usually, this means interior designers keep the bed away from the door for privacy and noise reduction.
I focus on maximizing light while providing options for blackout curtains for sleep. I include closets or dressers for storage and a subdued color palette.
Overhead, accent lights and recessed lighting provide an ambiance with layered lighting. Personal touches such as artwork and decor will add character and reflect the occupants’ personalities.
What Is the Primary Bedroom?
The primary suite is the main bedroom in a house. It’s where homeowners will spend a significant amount of their time. It often includes a larger bed, substantial closet space, and an en suite bathroom.
What Is the Best Bedroom Layout?
According to interior designers, the best bedroom layout is one that combines functionality with personal comfort. The design usually involves placing the bed in a central location with space on either side for bedside tables. The bed should have a clear view of the door but not be directly in line with it, offering a sense of privacy. Storage in closets and dressers avoids clutter.
