What’s better than one luxurious master suite? How about two master suites? It sounds decadent, but the truth is that dual master suites are gaining popularity because they can be super practical for families of every size and shape.

A dual master suite can be used for:

  • An in-law suite
  • A guest suite
  • A teen room
  • A home office
  • A man cave
  • A hybrid learning space
  • So much more!

Can a House Have Two Primary Bedrooms?

Yes, floor plans with dual master suites are possible. In fact, it’s a growing trend because of the many benefits having two master suites provides—privacy, flexible solutions for unique households, resale value, and so on. Luxury master suite floor plans are on the rise, especially as more people are spending more time together at home. The trend is also popular among older couples with changing sleeping habits.

Having separate master baths also has its advantages, especially for a couple with competing schedules or just a desire to have more privacy. Of course, who doesn’t want the extra storage space of two master closets? No matter what your reasons are for wanting home plans with two master suites, Adair Homes has options for you.

The use of structural and decorative tile has been around a lot longer than you might think! Beautiful tile work has been discovered in architectural remains from the early 13th Century B.C. First made out of baked clay, the term ‘tile’ now refers to many colorful, cut materials including ceramic, stone, metal, clay and glass. Today, the use of tile is ubiquitous to kitchens and baths; its properties are perfect for protecting drywall from heat, water, and oil. 

Considering how long tile has been in use, choosing a tile for your home can seem a bit overwhelming. Adair Homes has curated a selection of quality materials to choose from—but the style is all up to you. 

Curious what the trend-setters are saying? Read on for some 2021 tips and trends from the experts.
