Flex room options offer an easy way to customize your new home

From a study or extra bedroom, to a self-contained “home within a home,” flex rooms are one of the most popular features in new homes today. Sometimes called bonus rooms or multipurpose rooms, flex rooms offer homebuyers several options within the same square footage.

The main benefit of flex rooms is that they easily allow homebuyers to personalize floor plans to suit their needs. While some options involve an extra cost, choosing from a menu of builder flex room options typically costs much less than reworking a plan.

Lennar, Rancho Sienna’s newest homebuilder, will showcase several flex room options when it opens its new Giallo model home this summer.  

The one-and-a-half-story Giallo plan has a big upstairs flex room measuring 22 by 11 feet. This flex space includes a half-bath, making it perfect for a game room, media room or hobby space.

Another option is to build out the flex area as a fifth bedroom with a full bath and an adjoining loft. The way the space is configured, the loft can be a small gameroom or study center for everyone in the household to use, or it can make a private sitting area for the fifth bedroom.

Lennar’s Giallo II, a different floor plan that is also offered in Rancho Sienna, takes the idea of a flex space to an entirely new level. Part of Lennar’s innovative NextGen “home within a home” series, the Giallo II includes a self-contained living suite on the main floor, with a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. It has a private entrance from the front porch, making it ideal for multigenerational households and other dual living situations.

Also showcased in Rancho Sienna, Pulte’s two-story Granville model home has a downstairs flex space that can be built as a study with French doors. Located near the front door, the study can offer a quiet retreat for getting some work done. The flex space can also be kept as an open area that can be used as a formal living room.

Other model homes at Rancho Sienna show that flex options aren’t just for the inside of the home. They can also add outdoor living rooms and extra garage space.

CastleRock’s Osage model home offers options for a three-car garage and a covered patio.

Trendmaker’s Plan 602 model home offers a four-car garage option, providing extra space for parking,  storage or a workshop.

Sitterle’s San Saba model home offers the option of a room-sized covered outdoor living area off of the great room. A wall of windows helps to bring the outdoors inside to the open family, kitchen and dining area.
