Converting Bedrooms into Master Suite in Devonshire

Background Info: This 1950s home in the Devonshire neighborhood of Indianapolis was in need of a functional, spacious master suite. The homeowners were looking for design strategies to develop a more efficient master suite layout without a full addition.  This required some strategic space planning within their existing house footprint. Because of the wooded lot, the interior spaces needed additional daylight as well.







The goal was to design a master suite that utilized the existing home’s square footage, while creating a more functional floor plan. To create functional space for the master suite, two small bedrooms were converted into a large master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and walk-in closet.

For additional daylight, three skylights were added in the roof system: two in the bedroom and one in the closet. In addition, the existing windows were replaced with larger windows to maximize the daylight and view to the exterior.

To create a larger master bath, two full baths were transformed into one full bath, and a larger master bath. This was accomplished by creating a two-foot bump out for the small amount of additional square footage needed.

A large walk-in shower was accomplished with this new layout.
