Main Level Master Suites

An Excellent Economic Investment for Those Who Wish to Retire in Place

Floor plans designed with the master suite on the main level have become prevalent as the aging population increases, making it a good investment both economically and for those who wish to age with their home. They are also helpful for those families with a relative that is physically disabled. A master suite on the main level provides a multi-level home with plenty of space for guests and family, with the convenience of easy access to the master suite.

The primary benefit of a main level master suite is that trips up the stairs are minimized and you are right in the action. Another advantage of placing the master on the main is the possibility of reducing energy use. Empty nesters that have the house to themselves on a day-to-day basis may choose to only heat or cool the main level so extraneous energy is not wasted in unused portions of the house.

Many contemporary and modern plans are designed with the master suite on the main level. If built on a sloping lot, there might be a lower level that is used for entertainment space or additional bedrooms. Alternatively, an upper floor could house the secondary bedrooms and baths. Ranch house plans are becoming increasingly popular as families simplify and choose to be closer rather than spread out over a large house. This is why open plans with large great rooms and adjacent kitchens are a priority – place your master suite on the same level and be close to the action!
