There are many homeowners looking for luxury homes with multiple master suites, spurring a small yet lucrative and growing market for more relaxing space.
There are several reasons why today’s buyers are searching for homes with multiple master suites. The most popular one may surprise you though, married couples searching for separate his and hers bedroom suites. Couples who have been married a number of years or who have conflicting work and sleep schedules are looking for homes that allow each person their own sleeping oasis.
A shared bed is thought to promote intimacy and closeness in couples, but in some situations this is not always the case. If the couple has very different sleeping habits and one person’s sleeping habits are being disrupted, then sleeping in the same bed can put added strain on a relationship.
Maybe one person in the relationship needs complete quiet and dark while the other needs some background noise; or one person needs to get up early while the other is a night owl who has no demand to get out of bed before 7:30. These things can cause one or both people in the relationship many nights of poor sleep that can take even bigger tolls the longer it goes on.
Some say that separate bedrooms can re-kindle and re-spark the romance, with better rest and an “absence makes the heart grow fonder” approach. Some celebrity couples have begun to adapt this lifestyle such as Kim and Kanye.
As mentioned earlier, there are other reasons buyers are searching for more than one master bedroom. There are many young home buyers with young families that search for homes with multiple masters in order to care for aging parents or other relatives. This is commonly referred to as the sandwich generation. They have parents that are in need of downsizing and being near to someone who can help them with medical needs. These couples don’t want to give up their bedroom to mom or dad, but want them to feel comfortable and at home like they have their very own space to claim as their own.
Another reason for the demand in more than one master is adult children living at home longer. College students are returning home after graduation to save money while trying to find their way in the world as well as kids living at home during college or just living at home while trying to launch into a career. A second master allows adult children to have more privacy and you to retain a bit more sanity when they have their own space.
Yet another reason for two masters is a growing trend of hosting guests in style. Many people who constantly host friends and family members in their home as overnight guests are looking to offer a little more. Why have just a guest room when you can offer a guest suite? This allows for more privacy and comfort for both parties making your guests’ stay more pleasant and less stress
More and more builders are offering homes with multiple master suites to suit the needs of the buyer. The best way to find the perfect luxury home with two master bedrooms is with an experienced luxury real estate agent. Thank you to our guest post author this week, DenLin Properties.
