Five Reasons to Choose a Reverse Floor PlanAugust 15th, 2023 | by patriothomes
1. You Love to Entertain
Is your home the place where friends come and end up staying awhile? Do you often host family get-togethers? A reverse floor plan like the Roosevelt is ideal for gatherings as it provides a spacious open concept kitchen and great room, main level powder room, and a finished lower level with a family room and wet bar, as well as two bedrooms and a full bathroom for overnight guests. Between the great room and family room, you’ll have two large areas in which to entertain guests.
2. You Have Older Children or You’re an Empty Nester
Parents of small children often want secondary bedrooms to be on the same level as the master suite. However, once the kids have outgrown their fear of the dark or flown the coup entirely, having a master suite independent of additional bedrooms is welcomed. The Taft delivers with a master bedroom, secondary bedroom, and full bathroom on the main level and two bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the lower level. A family room separates the two bedroom suites and serves as a great place to hang out with friends and loved ones.
3. Main Level Living is on Your Checklist
New construction provides an excellent opportunity to make your final move into your dream home. Main level living – meaning the master suite is on the same level as the great room and kitchen – can be found in a reverse floor plan such as the Truman. These commonly used areas are accessible without having to climb stairs and a zero entry shower in the master bathroom makes your home livable for longer.
4. You Enjoy Outdoor Space
Whether perched on the deck looking out at the lawn or camped out on the patio next to the firepit, reverse floor plans like the Franklin are typically built on a walkout homesite, giving you two levels of outdoor living space to enjoy. Access to the large, covered deck is available from the breakfast nook as well as the master bedroom while the lower level family room opens to a covered concrete patio below.
5. Wanted: A Home Office or Hobby Room
If a home office or hobby room is a must-have on your new home checklist, all of our reverse floor plans include a flex room (along with a full bathroom) on the main level of the home. These rooms can also double as a secondary bedroom, offering a peaceful retreat when your significant other is sawing logs a little too loud. 😊
