What makes a "Princess Suite" floor plan unique? 

A Princess Suite usually refers to a secondary bedroom on the second floor with:

  • Private bath room
  • Expanded or walk in closet
  • Slightly greater sq ft than other secondary bedrooms
  • Special features, such as a built in seat or sitting area

Some home buyers use the princess suite as a guest bedroom, with all the same amenities. Search our floor plan gallery for princess suite home ideas.
