Is bigger always better?
One of the longstanding debates that people have always disagreed on is single vs double storey homes. After all, a bigger house means more living space, right? But that is not all that there is to it. A bigger home may create problems that a smaller home would not have. So when it comes to choosing luxury home designs, you must choose one that meets your family’s requirements both now and in the future. Below are some pros and cons that you must consider before choosing one or the other.
1. Your stage in life
As stated before, one of the main requirements that your home must meet is the ability to suit your needs now and in the future. Single storey homes are more suited to families that have small children or people that are retired. This is because a set of stairs can be a hazard in a home with little children or very old people. Families with teens may prefer double-storey homes because it is easier to separate living areas that way and the stairs will not be a problem.
2. The space that is available
Block sizes are getting smaller and smaller with time. One way that home builders have adjusted to this is by building going up to make up for the lack of space. A double-storey home will maximise all the space that you have available on your lot. Stacking the spaces in your home will allow you to have bigger rooms than you would have had in a single storey home. In general, a double-storey home allows for more garden space than a single storey home.
3. The home layout
When you are deciding what your home will look like, you need to optimise the liveability of your home. With a single storey house, this is easier as you do not need to worry about what will be going on upstairs, the noise coming from each room and how it will affect the rest of the house. While floor plans of a single-story home are a bit limited when compared to those for a double-storey home, you can still have a unique looking home.
4. The aspect of your property
If you have a property that has a great outlook, a double-storey home will showcase this and add value to the property. You will be able to capture all the natural light and have extra space to do with as you see fit. Double-storey homes look more majestic as well and have a better kerb appeal. Now that you know more about the pros and cons of single vs double storey homes. You need to find a home builder that will make your vision come to life.
