How would you work out this home's layout?

The (?future) kids would probably appreciate being on the upper level away from the parents. The other lower bedroom could be an exercise room or study so that you don’t have to move that heavy stuff up to the second floor. The other lower bedroom could also be a part time guest room.

howtobeawife:  Hmm. Interesting layout. Personally, I really love having a master bath that isn’t shared — it looks like your downstairs bathroom would be your master bath as the largest room is on the LL, so that would mean houseguests would be using your bathroom. I would put future children in the upstairs bedrooms, those are definitely big enough. And I agree with PP about the other downstairs bedroom — of course, it could also be a nursery or playroom or something when you have really little ones, or you could just make it a spare room. I would say the bedrooms are largely interchangable, but if you plan to have a home gym or anything you definitely want it on the LL because machines can make a lot of noise from upstairs (treadmill, etc). My only hesitation is the bathroom situation I mentioned in the beginning — personally I couldn’t have guests using our bathroom, my SO is a bit messy when it comes to changing/cleaning contacts, shaving, tooth brushing, etc lol.

howtobeawife:  I would make the lower bedroom a nursery.  And I’d likely use the family room on the same floor as the kitchen for everyday use.  I’d save the one on the lower floor for bigger events/gatherings. Until there were kids, I’d make the bedroom furthest from the master for guests. 😛  But that’s what we’ve planned for our house. 

But it’s really hard to figure out without looking at the plans.
