When we bought our house the original single car garage had already been enclosed and made into a large laundry, study and 4th bedroom off the kitchen. We have knocked out all of those walls and currently have plans to turn it into a master bedroom with an en-suite and walk in closet.
We showed a friend the area yesterday and he said he felt that it may be too narrow to feel like a "master suite" and that everything may feel small because of the width of the room. I don't really mind a smaller bedroom but I'm worried about resale.
Any suggestions on layout/alternative ideas would be appreciated.
We have 3 bedrooms and a bathroom down one end of the house and the new bedroom will be at the other end.
I do have photos of our floor plan and new design but I'm new to the site and have no idea how to upload photos

Well you haven't given any dimensions so not sure how people can give accurate help.
To ad a picture, you'll need to have them uploaded somewhere else and put a link in the post using the Img button. Somewhere like tinypic, google+ photos, flickr, imgur etc

You can make your new room looks bigger by using off-white, blue or green paint colours. Use multifunctional pieces like a table with side drawers, put a mirror and more. There are so many ideas you can find online.
Hope this helps!

What are the dimensions? I'm assuming if it was a single car garage it was minimum of 3.5 metres, possibly 4m wide? The master bedroom in my house is only 3.5m wide (4.8m long) and for me personally it was wide enough but felt almost too long. I have now converted that room into a studio flat that I rent out for holiday rentals (added in a kitchenette and have a living area space within that long room). My new renovation plans involve converting another room into a new master bedroom and it will be 4m x 3.8m and I think it will be plenty big enough.
I guess it depends what sort of furniture you want to have in there. Is it going to be used as more than just a bedroom (i.e. are you wanting to incorporate a home office space, sitting area, parental retreat) or is it really just for sleeping. If the later than really you can get away with 3.2m to comfortably fit a queen size bed with room either side and 3.5m to give plenty of room at end of bed to walk around and maybe even have a some shelving for TV etc along that wall.

In our experience, most volume builders are also happy to rearrange floor-plans to some degree. There is some cost with some builders, but it's pretty insignificant…

I think that's a great suggestion. It keeps all the plumbing in place and works really well spatially. The new size isn't huge but neither was the original so I think it…
