NAHB recently predicted that an increasing number of couples are opting to sleep apart . . . well . . . I’m not so sure this is an idea whose time has come . . . at least not in my house.
The NAHB, National Association of Home Builders, recently reported that by year 2015, 60% of custom-built homes will contain two . . . separate, but equal . . . master suites. Others will opt for “special” sleeping nooks off a central master suite.
This has nothing to do with what two consenting adults may, or may not do in the privacy of thier bedroom, but actually has more to do with snoring, as well as the the need for late night emails and early trips to the gym.
So . . . why would I make mention of this? Next time you’re sitting with a client for a new home or preparing to add a spiffy master suite and you need an edge to make the sale, keep this mind. Tactfully handled. this subject might prove you a forward and innovative thinker . . . just the kind of contractor an upwardly mobile couple would want to take on thier next project.
