If you’re building a new home, the barndominium is one of the most popular new build home choices.
With build times of as little as 6 months from plan to finished erection, the barndo has a lot to offer – including the reduced cost to build, lower maintenance, and more freedom of design.
One of those design choices is the option to have a dual master suite – where you have two owner suites of the same size with private bathrooms and views.
There are plenty of reasons to opt for a double master suite – including sharing a home, multi-generational living, and wanting to be closer to your family. However, designing one means taking a lot into account, including how to fit both into your home with an equal amount of prioritization.
These stunning barndominium floor plans offer just that, with the layout and design situated around the dual owner rooms.
Benefits Of Dual Master Suite Barndominium House Plans
There are plenty of reasons to opt for a dual master suite in your barndominium.
However, the double master bedroom isn’t for everyone. The following include some of the reasons you might want two owner bedrooms.
Sharing a Home with Friends
It’s more and more common for people to buy homes with their friends. If that sounds like you, then a dual master suite may be the way to go.
Sharing the cost of living, including the cost of purchasing a home, means you’ll invest less, have more to save for retirement or other goals, and can afford a larger home.
For many people, especially those not planning on a family in the near future or who are already retiring, sharing a home can be a great way to improve quality of life, increase time with friends, and reduce the cost of living.
And, if you have two master suites, you can easily equally divide that space.
It’s extremely common to have guests who might stay for weeks or even months at a time. That’s especially true if your family members live far away or in another country, or if you frequently host visitors, couch surfers, or even refugees.
Having the second master suite gives you the freedom to host guests for the longer term without imposing on anyone’s space, privacy, or feeling of independence. And, that can be a great thing if that’s part of your lifestyle.
Multi-generational living is increasingly the norm in the United States as Americans move away from putting their parents in retirement homes. Often, that means moving them into your home.
Here, having two master suites means that parents can enjoy the peace and privacy they want without imposing on yours.
Of course, that’s also true if your kids are growing up and not yet ready to move out, or if a sibling wants to move in. Having dual master suites means you can easily accommodate multi-generational living.
Planning for the Future
If you’re at a point where you’re not sure what the future will bring, having a second master bedroom can ensure you’re ready. For example, if you’re not sure if teens will move out, or if you’re not sure if your parents will move in to live with you. Or if you expect it, but in 10 years.
Opting for a dual master suite means you’re prepared, even if your family ends up moving in with you fully.
Personal Space for Couples
It’s often the case that different people just like different things. Having two rooms for a couple was also the norm for a very long time.
Today, that trend is coming back. And, that’s a good thing whether you’re facing issues with matching up schedules, like different styles, or have other problems.
For example, you might want a second master suite if you both work different hours and you might wake each other up. Or, if you frequently prefer to have your own space and privacy. Or, if you prefer a vastly different style of bedroom than the other.
Or, for example, if one of you has sleep apnea and needs a machine that keeps the other awake.
Having a second master suite gives you the freedom to have your own space without sacrificing your comfort.
