2 Bedroom Homes for Simplicity and Functionality

Many people underestimate 2 bedroom homes and are under the impression that they are always less luxurious than 3 or 4 bedroom homes. This is simply not the case. There are many benefits of investing in a 2 bedroom home; they need not be small; and the designs can be as flexible and varied as their larger-home counterparts.

Benefits of 2 Bedroom Homes

There are many benefits when buying a 2 bedroom home. One is that it can be a great investment for couples starting out financially. If both individuals are working, there is less time to maintain a property. Fortunately, 2 bedroom homes are generally lower maintenance as they are stereotypically smaller than multiple bedroom homes. A 2 Bedroom home also allows some room to move, should circumstances change. A second bedroom could become an office space, if you need to work from home, or cater for one or two small children.

The second bedroom can be used as a spare room for guests, or it could be a multifunctional room, for crafts, hobbies or even an indoor gym. With a 2 bedroom home, you may have more design space for an extra living area outdoors. You could include a verandah or alfresco deck, or extend one, if it is already in your design plan.

Less Can Be More

When we think of 2 bedroom homes we immediately envisage an apartment or unit. A 2 bedroom home need not be small or feel small. Although some of our 2 bedroom home designs are compact floor plans, you can make them appear more spacious through a variety of design ideas. One way to make your home feel bigger is to include high ceilings or a raked ceiling in open plan living areas. Large windows that let in natural light, well placed mirrors, and light coloured walls can also create a sense of space.

Flexible Designs

We have a large selection of 2 bedroom house designs, ranging from the simple, low maintenance ones mentioned above, to more luxurious and varied plans. If you find one of our floor plans that you like, but it is not quite perfect for your needs, we can help you make the modifications to get the home you want.
