Upscale Primary Suite Addition Cost
Primary suite additions typically consist of a spacious bedroom, a high-end bathroom, walk-in closet, and maybe even a sitting or lounge area. Popular elements that are often incorporated include a bedroom fireplace perhaps with a cast stone surround and custom mantle, a spacious closet, equipped with custom built-in shelving and dressers, a dressing area, and plenty of storage space for clothing, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories, and a spa-like bathroom. These bathrooms typically include high-end finishes such as marble tile, frameless glass shower enclosures, freestanding bathtubs, and custom double vanities with a stone countertop. Homeowners also might choose to install a steam shower or heated floors.
A hospitality center with custom cabinetry, a bar sink, coffee station, and an under-counter refrigerator has become a popular feature in primary suite additions, as have features such as custom sound systems and automated window treatments.
The cost of this type of primary suite addition can range greatly, driven by things like square footage and finish selections. Per the 2022 Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs Value Report, the average cost of a project of this nature is $357,000
