Why Luxury One Storey Homes are Back in Style

We’ve checked the Perth property market forecast and it’s official: Single storey home designs are back in trend. That’s right – you can still build your very own luxurious one storey home here in WA, so as long as you choose the right block, budget and builder. Read on to find out how you can build your very own single storey home with Perceptions.

The Benefits of Building a Single Storey Home in Perth

Single storey vs. double storey. It’s been one of the age-old debates in real estate for decades. So when deciding which design to go with, you need to think about your family’s needs both now and in the future. Here’s some of the mains factors to consider:

1. Affordability

The most obvious advantage of building a one storey home is that it’s generally cheaper than building a double storey home. With extra materials and additional labour time, building up can tend to be more expensive. So save yourself some time and money by choosing a single storey over a double.

When you choose to build a massive single storey home by Perceptions, you can rest assured we won’t steer away from costs when it comes to our choice of materials. As part of BGC, one of Australia’s largest building companies, we have direct access to top quality products and materials, which allows us to control the quality and build you a superior home while still remaining at an affordable price point.

This access to top quality BGC products and materials also ensures supply shortages and delays are avoided. That means you can get into your luxurious single storey home sooner. So with shorter construction times while still paying close attention to detail and affordability, it’s hard to look past a Perceptions single storey home.

2. Practicality

When it comes to a single storey, maintenance and general upkeep is usually easier. It can be challenging to maintain the exterior of upper storeys, so by choosing a single storey you can eliminate this obstacle altogether. With a single storey, simply access your home with a ladder and keep your home in tip-top shape all year round.

Another practical factor to consider is stairs. Stairs can be difficult and dangerous to navigate for many types of homebuyers such as the elderly and disabled who may have trouble moving around. They can also be a hazard for curious young children who want to go exploring. By sticking to one level, everyone is free to walk around the space with ease, making single storeys more inclusive to a wider age range.

3. Floorplan

By eliminating a second level, single storey designs encourage families to spend more time together, rather than in separate upstairs and downstairs zones. You’ll also find in contemporary single storey homes that there’s always an open floor plan, which encourages further family togetherness.

Open plan living combines the living, kitchen and dining areas, also known as the “Family Triangle”. While older homes would box each of these rooms off with walls, modern single storey layouts are often designed to merge these three areas into one large, open space.

Single storeys also gives designers the chance to get creative, so you’ll find some fantastic design considerations like vaulted ceilings and expansive windows, which create comfortable and beautiful areas where the whole family will naturally want to congregate.
