It’s more common than you think. In fact, according to the Pew Research Center, one in five homes is a multigenerational household.
From easier caregiving to stronger family bonds, it’s easy to see why many families embrace multigenerational living. And with Centennial’s floor plans featuring GenSmart Suites®, it’s never been more comfortable. Homeowners with GenSmart Suites appreciate how enriching living together can be while still having all the space and privacy necessary to recharge. Featuring separate kitchenettes, bedrooms, baths, washer/dryer hookups and front door entrances, these suites can serve as everything from a second master to an office hideaway.
For your son or daughter.
When kids are young, having a designated space for sleepovers and slumber parties is especially handy. With a built-in kitchenette, they can easily heat up a pizza or grab some drinks while they’re enjoying an evening flick. GenSmart Suites are on separate floors or the opposite wing of the master bedroom within Centennial’s floor plans so late night chatter doesn’t keep you up.
GenSmart Suites can also fit your developing family needs as your children grow. If they’re in college and studying nearby, they may appreciate the privacy of the separate entrance, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. They can also live somewhere private but more cost-effective than a sublet when they’re off for the summer. As your child transitions to any new chapter of their life, they still have somewhere that gives them–and you–space.
For your parents.
Now that you have children of your own, the topic of most conversations with your parents is likely the grandkids. Your parents can relax privately in their own separate space and not feel intrusive, yet are nearby to potentially help with after-school pickups and bedtime stories. If your parents need help, you can be right there for them with minimal inconvenience. Date nights are also much easier. You won’t need to worry about hiring a babysitter or dropping off your kids as your parents will be nearby and can spend time with them right at home.
Or perhaps you’re the homebuyer and grandparent? Are you excited to have a place everyone can spend more time together while being able to retreat at the end of the day? With flexible floor plans and contemporary features, you can feel good about creating this space to serve your family now and for years to come.
For your guests.
Treat your guests to complete comfort like a hotelier. Guests can wake up at their own pace when you can store drinks like orange juice in the separate fridge along with coffee and tea. For longer stays, they’ll appreciate having a convenient, separate washer and dryer. And you will, too!
For your business.
Have you always wanted a full professional office? Give yourself room to work while not having to drive somewhere else. With a separate, front-door entrance you’ll have your own suite to work from home.
