Elevate Your Lifestyle—The Benefits of Choosing Your Primary Suite Location

October 10, 2023

When it comes to choosing the perfect home, there are numerous factors to consider, and one decision is whether you prefer a first-floor primary suite or a second-floor primary suite. Both options have their advantages, and the choice ultimately depends on your lifestyle, preferences, and long-term plans. Read on to explore the benefits of having your primary suite on either floor of your new Boone home to help you make an informed decision. 

The First-Floor Primary Suite

One of the most significant advantages of having your primary suite on the first floor is accessibility, making it easier for any individuals with mobility issues to navigate the home without having to climb stairs regularly. It’s also a great choice for those who plan to be in their new homes for the foreseeable future—eliminating the need for a future move due to potential mobility concerns. 

If you frequently have guests or family members over, a first-floor primary suite also offers homeowners greater privacy, like in The Milan, The Lochbriar and The Southwick—all with a breathtaking two-story home design for potential buyers. With these homes, you can keep your personal space separate from the communal areas, providing a peaceful retreat when needed. Homes with first-floor primary suites often appeal to a broader range of buyers, as well, and this can potentially increase your home’s resale value and marketability, making it a sound investment in the future. 

The Second-Floor Primary Suite

Moving on to a second-floor primary suite, if you have children and want to be closer to the other bedrooms in your new Boone home, a second-floor primary suite may be the better choice for you. Our floor plans such as The Hawksmoor, The Bainworth and The Waterford allow you to be near your family members or any guests, making it easier to respond to their needs. Having your bedrooms on the second floor of your home are often quieter as well due to the fact that they are further from the main living areas, leading to better sleep and peaceful nights for all of your loved ones. 

Depending on your home’s location, a second-floor primary suite can also provide beautiful views of your surroundings, whether it’s a scenic landscape or your well-landscaped backyard—being able to enjoy the sunrise or sunset from an elevated position can be truly breathtaking in your second-floor owner’s suite. 

Considerations For Your Lifestyle

Whether you choose a first-floor or second-floor primary suite truly depends on your personal preferences and your lifestyle. Both options offer homeowners their own set of advantages, and the decision should be based off your current needs as well as your long-term plans.
