If you have the space and the means, a house with five bedrooms or more is the ultimate dream. Whether you have a large family, regularly entertain and accommodate visitors, or want to capitalise on the extra rooms for other purposes, a house with five bedrooms will allow you complete freedom of choice, no matter your current lifestyle status.
If you have a large growing family or care for elderly parents, a five bedroom home will ensure that each person can have their own space. It could also lessen arguments, especially as children grow into teenagerhood and crave more privacy and independence. In such large houses, bedrooms can be separated throughout the house, and you could have a designated area for parents and children, or for elderly adults with separate living areas too. Some specific design plans have separate quarters for a dependent, such as an elderly relative, or for a teenager retreat. When people have an assigned space, they are more likely to return to communal living areas when they want to be social, and this makes for a happier home.
If you do not need the five bedrooms as actual sleeping quarters, there are a plethora of options for the remaining rooms. This will vary depending on your lifestyle and type of family. Parents with young children may like to create a designated playroom. For older teenagers or for individuals working from home, you may fit out rooms as studies. Musical families could have a room for storing instruments and playing music. You could have a craft room, gym, store room, video gaming room or extensive walk in robe! The possibilities are endless.
If you live in a rural area, or far from extended family, you will probably want spare rooms for guests when they visit. If visitors are commonplace, it is much simpler and more convenient to have specific rooms readily available for guests, rather than shuffling the existing family around each time. This is definitely a benefit of five plus bedroom homes, if it applies to your situation.
