Multigenerational Homes & Designs

Welcome to our Multigenerational Living solutions. We understand the ever-changing dynamics of family life and the need for homes to adapt to people of all demographics. Australia has witnessed a recent surge in multigenerational housing. In fact, over four million Australians have already embraced this living arrangement. So, what exactly is a multigenerational home? A multigenerational home is a space where multiple generations of a family coexist under one roof. The popularity of these homes is no surprise, given the numerous benefits they offer.

Our multigenerational homes are designed for practical and affordable family living, helping different generations share a roof harmoniously.

At Everyday Homes, we understand the real-life needs of modern families, providing a space where generations can coexist seamlessly.

Our homes are thoughtfully crafted to accommodate the different needs of your family. If you desire privacy, practical solutions like two master suites on separate floors will ensure everyone gets their space. If you’re looking for family bonding experiences, adding spacious and open living spaces will help promote and bring you that togetherness.

Recognising Multigenerational Living Trends

Backing Multigenerational Living Trends is essential, especially considering the growing trend of adult children living at home for longer. Everyday Homes addresses this reality by focusing on practical design elements that make homes future-proof for changing family dynamics.

Our designs prioritise adaptability, ensuring homes can smoothly accommodate shifts in family living. This isn't just a trend but a response to the fact that children are moving out of their homes at an increasingly slower rate. With this fact alone, the designs of homes must meet the demands of Australia's housing trends.

Supporting multigenerational living means investing in a home that aligns with the practical aspects of modern family life. We are committed to creating spaces that respect the need for independence within the family, offering an environment where ageing children can comfortably stay while maintaining their autonomy. 

A Focus on Privacy and Independence

Family time is essential, but we also understand how integral privacy and independence are. In multigenerational homes, we know the diversity of each home and how privacy is needed to offer independence and freedom. Our zone-style homes offer distinct private areas that help foster a heightened sense of autonomy within the family unit. By allocating different sections of the house to various generations, like finished granny flats, we ensure each family member has their own personalised space. Our approach goes beyond just tailoring each family member's living experience; personalised private spaces add further value to the available open areas in your home. Hence, it underscores the advantages of a multigenerational setting.


Unveiling a concept unique to Everyday Homes, this housing solution is tailored to accommodate extended family members within the main dwelling. Designed to offer comfort, security, and affordability, these homes feature a separate room with an ensuite and provision for a service area, all without the need for special approvals. With the flexibility to accommodate a 4-bedroom home plus a coliving unit on lots under 450sqm, Everyday Homes offers versatile living solutions tailored to your family's needs.

These purpose-built residences promote community values while prioritizing personal space and affordability. Seniors can discover a fresh retirement lifestyle that fosters connection, safety, and well-being. Families, on the other hand, reap the rewards of living in close proximity, enhancing financial stability and relationships through multigenerational living.
