Moving up: Benefits of two storey home designs

New Homes

Given the wide range of home designs available today, many landowners or new home builders have the luxury of selecting either a single or two storey home.

At Summit Homes, we’ve dedicated nearly 40 years to crafting both single and two storey home designs, and love sharing our experiences and insights with WA families just like yours.

Should you be leaning towards two storey house plans, here are some of the benefits you can look forward to:

Two storey home designs benefit #1: More room to move

Two storey home designs can nearly double your living space, without costing twice the price. After all, you are placing one floorplan on top of the other, giving you much more room to play with.

For example, our Vision display home is a two storey house design that offers a fresh look at modern family living on over 350m2 of living space on a lot width of just under 15m. In addition, our two storey Daintree display home requires only a 12m lot width to deliver just over 310m2 of living space to take your family’s lifestyle to the next level.

Two storey home designs benefit #2: Enjoy a bigger garden

Compared to a single storey home, two storey house designs typically have a noticeably smaller footprint, leaving more land available for outdoor living. This extra space could potentially feature a pool, a larger patio or maybe even a vegetable garden – the choice is yours!

Two storey home designs benefit #3: More choice in the layout of your home

A nice advantage of having more living space is more choice in how you utilise it. For example, you can weigh up the benefits of having your master suite on the ground or upper level. In our Vision display home, the master suite is placed on the second storey, away from the downstairs entertainment and living areas for peace and quiet.

Another example can be seen in our Daintree display home. While some two storey house plans place the home theatre on the upper level so that it doubles as a second lounge for adult children, our Daintree display places it on the ground level so that it integrates well with other entertaining areas.

Two storey home designs benefit #4: Capitalise on views

There’s something so luxurious about living in a two storey home, and our beautiful new home designs certainly capitalise on this. With all four bedrooms located on the upper level in our Daintree display, the whole family can enjoy the views. While our Vision display home will give you the relaxing and indulgent parents’ retreat you’ve been searching for with its own private balcony.

Two storey home designs benefit #5: Greater opportunity to achieve the best of both worlds

A home design should ideally accommodate both styles of living – noisy entertaining / family time, and private / personal time. A two storey house design has the luxury of two separate levels to work with – for example, both our Daintree and Vision display homes dedicate the ground level to entertaining / family time, while the upstairs is beautifully private and quiet for the exclusive use of family members and guests.
