 What Is An In-Law Suite?

They can be referred to as an in-law suite, a mother-in-law apartment, a guest house, or a number of other terms but they all refer to the same basic concept. A space separate from the rest of the home that typically offers a kitchen, living space, bedroom, and bathroom. 

Mother-in-law suites often have a separate, private entrance from the main house as well. They can be attached to the main house or consist of a stand-alone unit.

Reasons To Add An In-Law Suite

One of the most common reasons people consider home additions, like mother-in-law suites, is to take care of parents as they age and need more assistance. When moving parents in, you might find it desirable to have some separation of space. A separate guest area allows your parent/s some personal space and independence. 

There are many other reasons so many people are opting to have additional spaces added to their homes.

  • Private Space For Live In Nanny
  • Space For Out Of Town Guests
  • Space For Grown Children That Aren’t Ready To Move Out
  • Potential Rental Income
  • To Increased Property Values
  • Private Work Space For Those That Work From Home
