Main Floor Living: Still a Hot Trend
Homes that offer the primary living on the first floor are a hot commodity both locally and around the nation. Main floor living boasts all the necessary amenities on one floor, allowing you to live comfortably on one level of your home while also having the ability to stretch out. There are several benefits to this type of floor plan:
Main-level master suites are a convenient and smart solution for aging in place. As older buyers decide on a home for their golden years, they may prefer a floor plan that doesn’t require them to negotiate stairs should the time ever come when they are physically unable to do so. Master bedrooms on the first floor, and other universal design elements, mold a home to serve its homeowner at all stages of his or her life. Some even have separate kitchenettes, dining areas and living rooms to give the feel of a separate apartment, lending a greater sense of independence. You may also find a variety of other amenities, including private entrances and walk-in closets. First floor masters allow the homeowners to age with their homes.
2. Greater Privacy
First floor master bedrooms also allow the master(s) of the house to be separated from those who are dwelling on the upper floors. Perhaps you’d rather have your less-than-quiet teenager practice his guitar in a far off third floor bedroom while you enjoy a peaceful day of reading in your sun-drenched first floor master sanctuary or remain fast asleep in your upstairs suite as your daughter returns home from a late-night work shift.
3. Multi-generational Living
As the nuclear family gives way to a larger family unit, another trend helping with the popularity of the downstairs master is multi-generational living– which often necessitates separate living space for grandparents. Today’s homes are more than just real estate; they are places where families live, love and experience life together.
