No matter how big or small your family is, it’s always nice to have a home that best suits your household’s needs and lifestyle. Let’s explore some family friendly home design options to consider for your next move:

Multi-generational Suite

If you have adult children, aging parents, or long-term guests residing in your house, a multi-generational suite is a great way to provide them with their own living space while also improving your home’s overall flow and functionality. When you’re shopping our communities, look for homes that offer Modern Living™ Suites, including the Dominic, the Ammolite and the Darius. Select plans even include a kitchenette and/or a coffee bar!

Bonus/Flex/Teen Room

Whether it’s video games or puzzles, dedicating a space in your home for the younger members of your household to hang out and play can be a great way to keep the kiddos entertained and keep unwanted toys or blocks out of other parts of the house. When the children move out, you can then convert these rooms into home gyms, offices, game rooms, etc. The Hemingway and the Presley are examples of Richmond American plans that offer a bonus room while the Augusta and the Sapphire offer teen rooms.

Formal Dining Room

From sharing a meal from your favorite take-out restaurant to hosting a holiday feast with all the trimmings, having a room dedicated to eating together is a great way to bond with your family. Given how busy and device-centric modern life can be, taking the time to unplug and break bread with your loved ones in a regular setting can go a long way toward enhancing your family dynamic and building lasting memories for the whole clan. We have several floor plans that offer elegant dining rooms, including the Celeste and the Seth.

Convenient Laundry

Numerous Richmond American homes offer second-floor laundry rooms, which can make completing this time-consuming chore a little easier as it cuts down on lugging clothes up and down the stairs. Floor plans that offer this handy feature include the Coronado, the Pearl and the Moonstone.

Energy-Efficient Homes

Richmond American is dedicated to building better homes for today and tomorrow. In addition to potentially helping save homeowners money, environmentally conscious houses can help ensure that your children (and theirs!) will get to enjoy the same quality of life that your family does now. We proudly include green programs such as ENERGY STAR® and Indoor airPLUS in our efforts to promote sustainability in our homebuilding process. 

We hope you’ll consider these family friendly home design options when you begin your next house hunt! If you’re planning on beginning this journey soon, be sure to get in touch with us to take advantage of special offers available in the part of the country you’re searching in.
