If you are planning to build your own home or start a family of your own, one of the biggest decisions that you will make is to decide how big the house will be. Choosing between a single or a two storey house can cost you hours after hours of decision making: Do you have the budget to spare? Do you need a bigger floor space?
During the decision making process, it is important to consider different things:
- Your personal needs
- Your lifestyle
- Your total lot area
- Most especially, your budget.
If you need a bigger space and you have a bigger budget to spare, a two storey house is more ideal.
Compared to a duplex or a bungalow, building a two storey house is more cost effective in the long run. You and your family can enjoy double to livable space, without spending twice the overall costs.
If you are looking for a bigger two storey house, then this design can be ideal for you.
This modern style two storey house is a four-bedroom structure with a total living area of 17 by 14 square meters.
From the outside, the combination of the gray and white hues gives this whole home a minimalist yet contemporary look. There are several long glass windows surrounding the home as well as a galvanized tile roofing which adds sophistication to the overall look.
There is also a spacious roofed garage just beside the main entryway. This garage can fit two cars or you can also convert it into a lanai or veranda for the family.
From the main entry door, you will be greeted by the spacious living room. Just a few steps from the reception area is the dining area and the kitchen.
Pro Tip: To save on space, you can convert the staircase into a storage room. You can use it to store appliances that you don’t need or it can also double up as a walk-in pantry.
The kitchen has an open-concept l-shape design, with enough space for a gas range, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and even several kitchen cabinets. There’s also a door leading to the washing area at the back.
The bedrooms are separated into two floors: The first two are located in the first floor while the other two are on the second floor. Right beside the staircase, the family can enjoy a time together in the family hall watching a movie or playing board games.
There are two Master’s Bedrooms in this house, all in the second floor. These rooms are very spacious. Each have a working area, which can also be converted as a dresser. The common bathroom can be accessed from the Master’s Bedroom. This attached toilet and bath has a provision for a bathtub.
