This size home is so popular because it’s an ideal size for a first family home. For a new couple, the extra bedrooms can be used for an office, guest room, or even rented to one or more roommates to bring in extra income. With a first child, one of the bedrooms can become a nursery. When two children are little, they can often share a room, allowing the other bedroom to remain an office or guest room. And finally, with two older children, each can have their own bedroom.
Singles may appreciate a 3 bedroom home because they can rent the two extra bedrooms to roommates to help with the monthly mortgage payments. Empty nesters who lived in larger homes to raise children may consider a 3 bedroom home once the kids move out - the two extra bedrooms allow space for hobbies and a guest room for friends or visiting children.
The typical size of a 3 bedroom house plan in the US is close to 2000 sq ft (185 m2). In other countries, a 3 bedroom home can be quite a bit smaller. Typically, the floor plan layout will include a large master bedroom, two smaller bedrooms, and 2 to 2.5 bathrooms. Recently, 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom layouts have become popular.
3 bedroom house plans are standard in both single story and 2 story configurations.
