Many families who decide to build a Flower Mound custom home choose to put all of the bedrooms upstairs. Why not put the master bedroom on the first floor, especially if square footage allows for it? There are many benefits to having the master suite on the ground floor, although you may not have thought it through. Before you decide not to put a bedroom on the first floor of your new home, consider the advantages of doing so.
First of all, if you have teenagers, you know how loud they can get when company is staying over. Having a bedroom on the lower level lets you enjoy peace and quiet, while the kids enjoy a bit more privacy.
If you have small children, you can sleep upstairs until your children have grown to an age that you feel secure letting them sleep alone. You can move downstairs when the point comes that you feel comfortable doing so.
What will you do when you get older? We all develop back problems, stiff joints or knee problems, arthritis, and other aches and pains as we age. Climbing stairs every night to go to bed when you get to a certain age may become a dreaded (and painful) chore each day.
Having a bedroom on the ground floor is ideal for many families today in an age of multi-generational living. If your parent or parents come for a visit, they can sleep comfortably without having to climb stairs. If yours is one of the many families where several generations live under one roof, elderly parents will enjoy having a space of their own, away from the rest of the family.
Most homeowners do desire a master bedroom located on the first floor, but if you are one of the ones who don’t, you may want to consider the factors mentioned above and give it a bit more thought before deciding against a ground floor master suite.
