Why are Multigenerational floor plans Popular?
Multigenerational floor plans are very popular. An increasing number of home buyers are looking for flexible floor plans to accommodate extended families. This trend is supported by a recent survey by The Harris Poll, which found that more than a quarter of Americans (26%) live in households with three or more generations.
To meet this growing demand, many home builders are introducing plans with two owner’s suites. With primary suites on opposite sides of a single-level home or with one upstairs and one downstairs, these are an ideal choice for buyers with large extended families. These home plans provide space for multiple generations to live under one roof, with areas for congregating and private spaces for each family member. These types of home plans are also well-suited to college students returning home or extended visits from the in-laws.
Multigenerational living has been a common practice in many cultures throughout history, including in many Asian, African, and Latin American countries. In the United States, multigenerational living was more common in the past, particularly before World War II, when extended families often lived together or nearby. However, there was a shift towards smaller nuclear families and a greater emphasis on independence and privacy after the war. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in multigenerational living as families seek to save on housing costs and provide support for aging relatives or adult children.
The resurgence of multigenerational floor plans in the United States helps families to save on housing costs and provide support for aging relatives or adult children. The COVID-19 pandemic has also increased multigenerational living arrangements as families come together for financial or health-related reasons.
