3 Bedroom Homes for Variety and Versatility

3 bedroom homes were initially designed for the nuclear family, with a bedroom for parents and one each for two children. Today 3 bedroom homes are seen in a new light: they come in all shapes and sizes, and are more versatile. Consequently, they also have many more benefits. The design plans for this type of home have in turn reflected this change in mindset. Swanbuild Homes offers many to choose from, and we can also make modifications to our designs.

Rooms that suit your needs

There are multitude of options for both families and couples alike, whether you use all the rooms as bedrooms, or some for other purposes. Couples can have a room each to themselves for their particular hobbies. Fitness fanatics may like to use a bedroom as a gym. Artists could have a studio or craft room. Musicians could have a dedicated music room. Book lovers may like to create a library. In light of recent events, many may wish to have a specific work from home room. Naturally, a spare room for guests is another option, especially for those who live far away from their family. It is also possible to incorporate the aforementioned rooms as part of a spare bedroom to have the benefits of both. For example, a studio with a fold out couch could accommodate two needs.


Family friendly versatility

Small to medium families can enjoy a home that is just the right size and maximise all the rooms as bedrooms. Families using only two of the bedrooms for their primary function could use the third for any of the above purposes outlined for couples, or as a playroom for children. It is always nice to be able to close the door and keep the living areas free from toys and clutter. A family with two children or more could choose a plan with a separate study and extra living areas, if they require some additional space for the family to spread out.
