Here’s what we did:

In this version of the Eleanor, Stanton Homes expanded and modified a bedroom to add a full mother in law suite with bathroom, walk-in closet, kitchenette, living room, and private entrance.



We also added a powder room with drop zone off the garage and moved the laundry room to make room for a corner pantry in the kitchen.

How to Find an In Law Suite Home

Help Finding Mother In Law Suite Floor Plans

Mother In Law Suite Floor Plans | Mother in Law Suite HomesMother in law suite homes are becoming more popular, for a variety of reasons.  An In-Law Suite is a planned area for additional adults to share living space on a temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent basis.  A mother in law suite can be:

  • A bedroom with a full bath attached.

  • A bedroom with a sitting room near a full bath.

  • A small "apartment" which may have a bedroom and a living room/kitchenette combination.

  • A suite with a separate entrance.

But even though mother in law suite homes are becoming more popular, it can be really tough to find a floor plan that works for your family - which is why Stanton Homes often custom designs homes that offer a full mother in law suite.

Dual Master Suite Homes

Sometimes a mother in law suite home can be a home with two full master suites.  

A second master suite gives long-term guests a large, private bath, extensive closet space, and an oversized bedroom that can usually fit not only the bedroom furniture, but also a small seating arrangement.

Top 5 Mother In Law Floor Plan Questions - Don't Forget to Ask!

  
  
  

Top 5 Questions to Ask Before Buying

New Homes with Mother In-Law Suites   

New homes with mother in law suites are more popular than ever, as the economy shifts to a more condensed lifestyle. According to a  Coldwell Banker survey, financial reasons came up as the top answer homebuyers gave for wanting their new home to have a mother-in-law suite. 

Another big segment of homebuyers said that they wanted a home with an inlaw suite so that they would be able to take care of a family member in frail health. 

Before choosing a mother in law suite floor plan, you'll want to answer these five important questions:

1.  Is a Kitchenette Necessary?

If you have plenty of room in the budget, a kitchenette can be a great feature, and help keep the mother in law suite completely separate from the rest of the home.   But if you're trying to keep below a certain price point, this feature can be the easiest to pass on.

2.  Do you need a Second Entrance?

A second entrance can be a bonus for privacy, and for potential future conversion to a separate apartment.  But it might not be essential.  A typical French door can add $600 or so to the cost, plus the cost of any ramps, steps, or exterior lighting.

3.  How Big Should the Bathroom Be?

A mother in law suite can share a bath with the rest of the home (eliminating the need for a powder room) to save cost, or can have a completely separate bath.   This bathroom can have a tub, a shower only, or be a "second master bath" with both tub and shower. 

4.  Should the Mother in Law Suite be Accessible?

There are several factors to consider.  For resale, having at least an accessible guest suite can be a big plus - make sure the front entrance is easy to use, too.   Consider different levels of accessibility, too.   Do you need a bath with 5x5 turning radius, dismount space, and a roll in shower, or will just having a shower instead of a tub be enough? 

5.  Is Separate Living Space a Must?

A mother in law suite can consist of anything from a large bedroom with an attached bath to a full separate living area, with private sitting room, bedroom with oversized closet, and more.  Discuss your needs with your builder.
