The popularity of homes with dual owner’s suites is growing rapidly. Buyer profiles vary from households with aging parents to siblings moving in to adult children sharing the home with you. If secondary bedrooms can be located upstairs or in a finished lower level, dual owner’s suite homes offer tremendous appeal.
Not only are homes designed with dual owner’s suites being used for sharing a home, the home owners are “sharing” the space themselves! It might amaze you to find out just how many committed, happy couples choose not to share the same bedroom. Design Basics’ VP of Business Development, Paul Foresman, was featured in the article, “Suite idea: Dual master bedrooms,” which highlighted reasons couples are opting for separate sleeping quarters—mainly, they need more sleep! “Snoring, medical issues, conflicting schedules – to get a good night’s sleep, the dual-bedroom solution seems to work really well,” Paul comments.
Dual owner’s suites can be configured many different ways, from being in close proximity to each other to being on opposite sides of the home. Some couples may want to have their own bedroom, yet still feel connected; then, they may place both suites on the same side of the home. The Gunnison (plan #50016, featured) features both suites on the same side of the house, keeping the family and entertaining spaces separate from the sleeping areas.
Perhaps your spouse is a light sleeper and your schedules don’t jibe, then you might want to consider separate suites on opposite sides of the house. The Sadie (plan #29353, above) positions the owner’s suites flanking the main living areas, thereby keeping the two sleeping areas separate. Both owner’s suites feature a spacious bathroom, large walk-in closets, and dedicated linen closets.
