Do you love the look and spaciousness of a two story home, but prefer the convenience of a main floor master bedroom? One of the perks of building your dream home from a custom home floor plan is that you design exactly how it will function now and later, in your family’s life. A main floor master bedroom is great for accessibility, multi-generation households, empty-nesters, and homeowners who simply love the ease of main level living.

Here’s a few great reasons to choose a master bedroom on the main floor:

This is Your Forever Home.

When you build a dream home, you don’t want to leave it one day just because you’ve entered old age. Your home should answer all of your needs, not just now, but 30, 40, and 50 years down the road. As you age, you may not feel comfortable going up and down stairs. A main level master bedroom will enable you to live independently in your own home.

You Have a Multi-Generation Household.

It’s becoming more common for a household to host not just the core family of mom, dad and kids, but also grandparents and even extended family. If that sounds like you, you can give your parents your first floor master and convert a second floor master for yourself.

You’re a Gracious Host.

Do you have a constant stream of guests in your home? Whether you offer your main floor master as a guest suite or host them on the second floor, privacy is ideal when you’re separated by different floors.

At Adair Homes, we love our Mt. Rainier floor plan as a great option for a main level master bedroom. This 3217 square foot home is customizable to your master suite needs. Tucked away on the quieter side of the home (away from the hub-bub of the kitchen) is your spacious master suite. The home is designed to shield your master suite from upstairs noise, with no bedrooms above you, and is perfect for older children or when you become empty-nesters with college-bound children home on spring break.
