Designing your home

Bonus Bedroom Home Designs

In the unprecedented times we’re experiencing, designing a home able to support lifestyle changes for yourself and your family is fundamental.

Bonus bedroom homes offer the luxury and flexibility of space to support your evolving home life and family. From a multi-generational family arrangement or simply providing extra spaces to retreat, bonus-bedroom home plans can be customized and adapted with the future in mind.

For Your Family and Lifestyle

Multi-Generational Living

The phenomenon of multi-generation living continues to become more commonplace in America and beyond. Whether a product of family culture or financial practicality, intergenerational living requires a home to support the differing needs of each individual.

With increases in migration diversifying the American culture along with the impacts of Covid, more families are currently embracing multi-generational living.

Bonus bedroom home plans allow you to be mindful of your children’s or parents’ futures in your home design and employ a plan that works for you.

The Benefits of Extra Space

Beyond multi-generational living, bonus-bedroom house plans offer all the benefits of extra space. With growing families, additional bedrooms offer more independence for the family as needed, ensuring each family member has access to their own space.

Additional bedrooms equip you with the luxury of adapting spaces as needed, from extra bedrooms, guest rooms or multi-purpose spaces. Bonus-bedroom house plans provide flexibility and functionality, easily pivoted to suit your family and lifestyle priorities.

The Somerset home styles provide the luxury of a bonus-bedroom house plan while maintaining a one-story structure to maximize convenience and space. The Atlas opens up to reveal an open concept living area with enough living space to keep the whole family happy. The four guest bedrooms are located along the left side of the home with their own separate living space and full bathroom. While the primary bedroom has its own wing with a private bathroom and two walk-in closets.

The family living area, including a designer kitchen as well as a family and dining area, separates the main home from the 524-square-foot ADU. The ADU has its own private entrance and can be used as a completely separate living quarter to the main house. The Atlas design is ideal for multi-generational families who are looking for their own space.
