Single storey versus double storey homes in Perth

New Homes

One of the first decisions you need to make when browsing house designs in Perth is whether you would ultimately prefer to build a single or double storey home.

New home builders in Perth, WA can often give you the choice of either option, with a design portfolio of both single and two storey homes.

Whether single or double storey house plans are the right choice for you and your family depends on a range of key elements, such as:

  • Block size

It’s natural to look towards double storey homes in Perth if you are looking to achieve a lot of living space on an average block size. Home building companies in Perth can usually accommodate four bedrooms and two bathrooms on less land with double storey house plans, whereas achieving the same configuration in a single storey will require more land space.

In addition, because two storey homes require less land, the rest of your block can be utilised as front and backyard space. However, keep in mind that you do lose some space with a double storey home as staircases can be considered a ‘dead space’ in the home.

  • Choice of layouts

Generally speaking, double storey house plans will give you more variety overall as your new home builders in Perth have more room to work with. Bedrooms, play areas and even key living areas can be switched between levels to create a wide range of double storey house plans.

  • Stage of life

Retirees or young families may prefer single storey homes because you are able to move around the entire house design without encountering stairs.

On the other hand, as the kids become older, two storey homes give you the opportunity for greater separation between noisy teenagers and the rest of the home. With this in mind, the best new home builders in Perth will allow you to customise your double storey house plans so that the master suite and nursery are located on the ground level to alleviate the issue of stairs through each stage of life.
