Choosing a perfect master bedroom size doesn’t come naturally. Luckily, we’ll look at the different master bedroom sizes to find the most suitable option for you. 

1. Small-sized master bedroom

A small master bedroom usually measures about 14 x 16 feet translating to 4.3 x 4.9 meters. The area is 224 square feet or 21 square meters, ideal for an average home size of 2,000 square feet or 186 square meters. These bedrooms feature enough room to move about, but a bathroom or closet could make the space feel tight. 

This minimum-size bedroom can accommodate a king-size bed, but you can go with a queen-size or full-sized bed if you want to conserve space. If you want to add furniture to your small master bedroom, any of the following will do. 

  • 2 sitting chairs or a sofa
  • a center table
  • a wardrobe
  • a dresser
  • 2 side tables or side shelves
  • a 43-inch TV

You can make a small master bedroom look bigger by playing around with your home’s ambient lighting and color scheme. This bedroom is easy to clean because of the smaller size and facilitates quick heating and cooling. 

2. Average-sized master bedroom

The standard master bedroom size could vary depending on the size of the house. So here are the dimensions for average master bedroom sizes:

  • 14 x 20 ft (4.2 x 6 m) 
  • 15 x 20 ft (4.5 x 6 m)

An average master bedroom will take up 250 to 310 square feet (23 to 29 square inches). As such, it’s suitable for houses with an area of 2,000 to 2,500 square feet or 186 to 233 square meters. It will have enough room to accommodate a bathroom and a closet without hassle. 

A king-size bed is a natural choice for the average-size master bedroom, but if you’d like more living space, you can take a queen-size bed. Fortunately, you’ll have enough bedroom space for the following furnishings.

  • 2 sitting chairs or a sofa,
