Bedroom size, placement and design can be pivotal in creating a harmonious household.
These factors lead to convenience, privacy, organization and support of a good night’s sleep, strengths incorporated in the Titus.
This is a 2,595-square-foot home is a front-drive single-family mode by Homes by Avi. A show home depicting this model is presently in the northwest Calgary community of Rockland Park.
There are three spacious bedrooms on the second floor, a main floor bedroom and a full legal suite containing a bedroom in the basement.
Each of these bedrooms has a large walk-in closet, helping avoid the chances of clutter. These closets help support the needs of the children of the family as they get older.
The larger of the secondary, or children’s, bedrooms on the second level reaches 12 feet by 11 feet. One of these bedrooms boasts one generously sized window, and the other has windows on two walls.
The 12-foot by 15-foot four-inch master has a closet accessed from within its ensuite. This closet is large enough to function as a dressing room. Combining the two spaces creates one fluid area in which to prepare for one’s day at work.
In the ensuite, a free-standing tub beneath a window is flanked by two vanities. This gives each member of the couple an abundance of elbow room and their surface area for hair and hygiene products.
A full bathroom near the secondary bedrooms achieves this, as well. There is a vanity with two sinks and plenty of space between them. This allows more than one child to get ready for their day at the same time, making weekday mornings more efficient.
Next to this bathroom is a laundry room, positioned conveniently for short walks hauling a heavy laundry basket. In addition to the washer and dryer, it has shelves and counter space, ideal for sorting and folding clothes.
Separating the master from the secondary bedrooms is a central bonus room. Kitty corner is a loft area featuring two expansive desks flanking a cabinet unit. It’s easy to imagine the children of the family using this space to polish of a homework assignment or study for an exam.
On the main level, a bedroom and full bathroom are tucked away from high traffic areas, delivering an element of privacy for the people who occupy it. Multi-generational households will be attracted to this bedroom, allowing seniors in the family to avoid regular use of stairs.
The kitchen is L-shaped and shown with stainless steel appliances, including a stylish chimney-style hoodfan. It features a corner pantry and island with seating for at least four people.
A great room and dining area back on to the rear-facing wall, which includes a window and sliding glass door that opens to a full-length deck.
In addition to the dining area, there is a lounge space just off the foyer that can function as a more formal dining area. This may be appealing for larger gatherings, such a holiday celebrations.
Supporting the aforementioned legal suite, the show demonstrates a side entrance. This creates a more direct entrance for the people who occupy this area, such as rental tenants.
Features in the legal suite include an L-shaped kitchen and island with seating for two people.
