A Home Within a Home: Multi-Generational Floor Plans


Multi-Generational Floor Plans

Shifts in affordability, immigration and senior living have led to record levels of multi-generational living. A 2014 Pew Research Center study found that 60.6 million people—19 percent of the U.S. population—lived in a multi-generational arrangement, and this trend continues to increase. Today’s homebuyers are looking for multi-generational floor plans to accommodate their unique family structures.

According to a report produced by Curbed, the growing and increasingly diverse immigrant population, millennials who are “age-agnostic” and seeking the financial benefits of moving home, as well as the fact the Americans are living longer contribute to this growing trend.

Homes designed specifically for multi-generational family homebuyers are on the cutting edge of design. They often include self-contained, apartment-like living areas with a bedroom, a full bath, a kitchenette, a separate entrance and sometimes a laundry room and garage. Be sure to know what the key elements of home design to consider when thinking about multi-generational floor plans.
