Like its classic six counterpart, “split bedroom” is a frequently used if not immediately clear term in the world of New York real estate. It refers to a house or apartment floor plan where the primary suite is situated on one end of the apartment and the secondary bedroom(s) are located at the opposite end, with living space in between.

Such a floor plan allows for optimal privacy among people living in a home, whether it’s parents and childrens, multiple generations, friends or housemates sharing an apartment, or even single people hosting guests. Either way, the layout allows people to go about their daily routine without disturbing others in the home. That is not to say that it is isolating, though—without hallways that would normally separate the primary suite from other bedrooms, the living areas can enjoy greater square footage and more effectively serve as the heart of the home.

The only families that might not benefit from a split bedroom layout are those with babies or young children who might need constant attention—as consumer trend expert Beatrice de Jong pointed out to Apartment Therapy, every minute counts with sleep-deprived parents. Builder New Era Homes also points out that such a layout might not be the most energy-efficient, as it would be easier to heat and cool the bedrooms on one side of a home rather than spreading them out.
