Most houses have their master bedroom upstairs. I feel it should be where the living area is and the upstairs should be for guests. I have done that in my house but why is it that the master bedroom is invariably upstairs?

That happens only in two story houses. My house is a ranch style and my master bedroom is at the end of the house with a connecting bathroom. I love it that way because its away from guest who come to the house. If you have guest that have to go upstairs then you have everyone walking thru the entire house. I wouldn't like that at all.

I have designed my house in such a way that the inside area of my house is connected through a broad passage where one enters from the hall and the passage leads to the master bedroom,a toilet, the storage,the kitchen, and upstairs landing. The guests who walk up never have to go through any part of the house except through this passage. The living area is for the use of home people and should therefore be next to their bedroom.

In my house there is only one hall downstairs and a small portion of it with some wall is made as kitchen. There are no rooms downstairs as there is no place for a room. So it was a compulsion to keep the rooms upstairs. However I feel, if the master bed room is kept upstairs in spite of having space downstairs, then it must be for privacy's sake. There will not be any disturbance upstairs and it will be exclusive.

Guests will be upstairs and so those in the master bedroom will have their privacy. Also it all depends on how the house is designed. One should have independent access to rooms and not go from one room to another.
