As lifestyles become busier for established families with older children, they may be ready to move up to a four bedroom home. 4 bedroom house plans usually allow each child to have their own room, with a generous master suite and possibly a guest room. Empty nesters may also choose to remain in a larger home to allow room for house guests as their extended family grows, or as elderly relatives come to live with them. Some four bedroom homes include in-law suites or apartments. Living on one level is still possible with a rambling ranch home, but four bedroom house plans are often two stories. The master suite may be on the main level or in an opposite wing from secondary bedrooms for privacy. Since they are primarily designed with families in mind, four bedroom floor plans will often have open floor plans with plenty of spaces for the family to gather as well as retreat for homework and downtime. Bonus rooms may be found above the garage or on the lower level to expand as needs demand.
