If you’re deciding whether to build a single or two storey house, choosing the best home design that works for you and your family can be a daunting task.
In some cases, the choice is clear. Physical limitations of the block size or personal preferences can make the decision obvious. For others, the choice is not so easy.
With so many house design options for both single and double story homes, here’s 3 reasons to build a two storey home to help make the decision process a little easier:
With Perth’s block sizes shrinking, you want to make sure you get the most out of your space. Building up means you have less of a footprint, which also means you can save money on buying a larger block.
You also get more choices when it comes to location. So you can build in the suburb you’ve always wanted to, without going too far north or south of your desired location.
When you build a two storey house, you can spread your living spaces and bedrooms across two levels, giving you more flexibility to create multiple living options for your family.
Whether you’ve got kids on the way or your family is already growing at a quick pace, ensuring you’ve got plenty of bedrooms – and perhaps a guest room, study and activity room – is even easier when you go up.
The backyard is important when it comes to living the quintessential ‘Aussie’ dream. A backyard game of cricket, a swimming pool, alfresco entertainment, a spa plus pet comfort all come to mind when considering a dream backyard.
A two storey home allows you to have a bigger yard and more space for that beautiful alfresco area you have always wanted. Outdoor pets will benefit too. With the size of lots decreasing, a larger backyard can be hard to come by.
