Women tend to really appreciate a master bathroom with all the amenities they want. This is a major reason why this is a popular home remodeling project. The goal for many with a master bathroom remodel is to have both a shower and a separate bathtub, to have two vanities for him and her, more storage space, better lighting, and if space allows, a separate closed off room for the toilet. Another project that sometimes gets included in a master bathroom remodel is a closet renovation. Depending on the space and layout of the master bedroom, people want to have their closets close to and integrated with the master bathroom. Completing changing wall locations and designing a new layout to fit everything is more expensive, but usually required if all of the goals are desired in the project.

Sketching out the wall layout of your current bathroom, bedroom, and closets gives you a good overall picture. Then you could work with a designer or contractor to come up with different layouts for the various major elements to see if and how everything you want will fit.
Beyond the layout, coming up with a style and color scheme is important. Do you want a modern, French, Italian, or old fashioned look and feel. Looking at pictures of other master bathrooms can help you decide on a style.
This project involves a lot of different trade skills especially plumbing, electrical, hvac, carpentry, and tile work. Most people hire a contractor to do the work, but you could also save some money if you have the skills to do some of the work and talk with your contractor about this upfront.
