New Homes in Raleigh NC with First-Floor Bedrooms

When thinking about your next new home in Raleigh NC with a first-floor bedroom, do you envision an open-concept, spacious first floor with plenty of room to move? Are you looking forward to having your owner’s suite on the main floor to reduce trips up and down the stairs? Or for maximum privacy, maybe you’d prefer for your guest bedroom to be on the first floor and all other bedrooms upstairs? Even in a two-story home, there are so many reasons to consider the first-floor bedroom as one of your top new home features. One of the benefits of having your new construction home in Raleigh is you can design it for what’s best for your family.

What are The Benefits of a New Construction Home First Floor Bedroom in Raleigh?

Easier to Navigate

Most of today’s new homes in Raleigh NC are built with open-concept layouts on the first level. Your kitchen may flow into the dining room or cafe, which is open to the living room and the patio beyond. When your bedroom is on the first floor, it’s easy to step out into your kitchen or living area any time of day or night, without worrying about stairs.

More Peace and Quiet

Today’s multi-level homes are constructed with excellent noise barriers between floors, but if you’d prefer more complete privacy or less noise in the evenings, a first-floor bedroom is the way to go. In New Home Inc.’s floorplans, these bedrooms are tucked away from the main living spaces to reduce traffic near the door. 

Less Expensive to Heat & Cool New Construction Homes in Raleigh NC

If you live primarily on the main level, you can save on heating and cooling costs. In a New Home Inc. home, we provide a dual unit HVAC system that allows for different temperatures on different floors. During the day, when fewer people are home, you can adjust the upstairs thermostat to be higher in the summer or lower in the winter so that floor doesn’t use much energy. If the upstairs bedrooms are reserved for guests, you’ll only need to turn up the heat or air when they’re in town. 

Pleasant Experience for Guests

A guest suite on the first floor is always a great idea, especially if you have visitors often. A spacious, new home in Raleigh NC, comfortable bedroom with an adjacent full bathroom, tucked away in the home, is ideal for both you and them for quiet and privacy. This is also a convenient room to use for a sick family member or one who is recovering from surgery, so they can easily access the kitchen and living areas. When not in use, the first-floor guest suite can become a flex space for working, studying, exercising, and more.
