Some buyers just need a lot of bedrooms without huge square footage. These homes provide rooms for the whole family—especially a multigenerational group—while keeping costs down by streamlining public spaces. 

Great for Family with Older Kids

The master suite is located on the first floor of this charming new design, making it a good layout for aging in place. Additionally, the guest suite on this level is an easily accessed place to house a live-in relative. Three more bedrooms occupy the second level, with a rec room available to finish over the garage.

Five Bedrooms, 1,988 Square Feet

Here’s an impressive example of using space well. This single-level home uses a split-bedroom layout to ensure maximum privacy for the master suite, with four additional bedrooms on the right side arranged around two bathrooms. A study provides a quiet place for homework. Everyone will gather in the living room and open kitchen, where a snack bar and casual dining space create a relaxed atmosphere.

Private In-Law Suite

Families with a live-in relative will appreciate the comfortable, private in-law suite, featuring its own entrance from outside, a whirlpool tub, separate shower, and spacious bedroom. The master suite resides on the other side of the plan, along with three secondary bedrooms. Everyone can meet in the middle in the bright great room or the cozy hearth room/kitchen area. The three-car garage provides plenty of parking space, with a bonus room above that can be finished later. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Fun Rooms Downstairs

Here’s a good plan for a family with older kids or other members who appreciate some privacy. The main level layout offers terrific flow in the public spaces, especially the island kitchen and cozy adjoining nook. The master suite and two secondary bedrooms reside on the right side of the plan. Downstairs, three more bedrooms have use of the recreational spaces, with room for billiards, movies, and more.
