How to choose the ideal floor plan for your double storey home


When selecting a floor plan for your double storey house, you want to ensure you have greater living flexibility and plenty of space to accommodate your lifestyle needs.

From reverse, upper floor living to downstairs living, choosing the right floor plan for you and your block of land ensures you optimise your potential views and living space.

To help decide on the right floor plan for yourself and your family, see our great range of options below:

Reverse Living

Reverse living, or upper floor living is becoming very popular in WA, especially in coastal suburbs. These home designs locate the kitchen and main living areas upstairs, with the bedrooms downstairs.

Having your main living areas in the upper floor will enable you to maximise any views you have, and who wouldn’t love to relax on their first floor balcony and enjoy the lovely sunsets in Perth?

If you’re looking for a home design with upper floor living, The Panorama features a genuine two storey living with upstairs kitchen, scullery, dining and living area. The upper floor also features a large balcony, ideal for lots with a view.

The lower level contains four bedrooms, including a spacious master suite, and an activity area connected to the outdoor alfresco.

Downstairs Living

The beauty of double storey homes are that they provide more flexibility in terms of layout. You can have a better division of space, meaning you can separate the master bedroom from the minor bedrooms or place all of the sleeping areas on the second storey, away from the downstairs living areas.

Express has a range of double storey home designs which feature the main living areas on the ground floor and some variations of floor plans for the upper floor:

  • Upstairs family bedroom wing

The Stockholm home design features a downstairs rear living with an open plan kitchen, family and dining areas flowing out onto the outdoor alfresco. The master bedroom with large ensuite is located at the front of the house on the ground floor, whilst the upper level includes three impressively sized bedrooms, study and bathroom.

The Eden home design features the main living areas on the ground floor, with the master bedroom located at the front and two secondary bedrooms located at rear on the left wing. The right wing shows off a stunning family living with the kitchen and meals area directly connected to the outdoor alfresco. The upper floor includes a second ensuite bedroom, study nook and theatre room.
