Advantages of one-floor house plan over multi-floor house plan
Many house developers have been in dilemma over the choice between one-floor house plans and multiple-floor house plans. It always seems like a good idea to have two or three floor house plan for a family as there are extra rooms which is case of Guests and children can work as Guest Bedroom, Study, Kids Pay area, Puja Room, etc. But a very common observation has been there that a more area and space is always welcome at the beginning of house construction, but over the years when the family starts living and using the space that there are lots to maintain and deal with, which in turn is waste of initial capital investment. Rather conserve funds for the overall maintenance of the house over period of time.
With this article we would like to raise few reasons which we feel can explain why it is preferable to choose one-floor house plans.
Home owners who are elderly favours one-floor housing plans because these plans have no stairs inside the house. This means that they can easily access all parts of their house without any much struggle. The way these house plans are designed it ensures that the elderly home owners obtain maximum utility from it.
2. The Ease of Renovation and Maintenance
The everywhere-accessibility of one-floor house plans also implies that it is easier to renovate and carry out maintenance works. The easier the renovation and maintenance, the lower the cost.
3. Efficient use of Energy
One-floor house plans require much less energy to heat the rooms than Multiple-floor house plans. This is because Multiple-House plans require more complex heating and cooling systems.
Multiple-Floor housing plans requires a lot of planning and structural design analysis as compared to one-floor plans. These services are not offered for free but at a premium cost. These costs are included in the overall house constructions costs and therefore increases the cost hence making unaffordable to many.
5. Ease of Extension
As opposed to Multiple-Floor house plans, one-floor house plans can be easily extended for more spacious rooms for example to get expansive living rooms, bedrooms, etc. Multiple-floor plans will require a lot of planning and structural analysis before expansion is done. This also implies higher costs of expansion and time.
In some areas, the government has placed restrictions on the height regulations and those who contravene these regulations are heavily fined and even their homes brought down. To avoid these fines and losses as a result of bringing down the already built houses the home owners can choose to have one-floor plan.
One-floor house plans are more safe in the event of earth tremors, earthquakes or fires, simply because of the ability to easily evacuate from the house. The absence of stairs also means that there are reduced accidents experienced in the house, stairs are known to cause fatal accidents and at times even taking life of the house occupants.
8. Use of natural light
Under one-floor house plan, home owners can use glass in some part of the wall and this will enable occupants use sufficient amount of natural light during the day hence saving on energy costs. This is not likely to be possible under Multiple-Floor house plan because the walls need to be strong so as to support other rooms on the upstairs.
9. Efficient use of space
Under Multiple-floor house plans, stairs and elevators consumes so much space but one-floor house plan utilises each and every space therefore all the space available is utilised.
10. Easier connection to outdoor living spaces
One-floor housing plan can be connected together to expansive outdoor spaces such as verandas and beautiful gardens surrounding the house, that is by eliminating barriers between the indoor living room and outdoor living space. By use of transparent glass in between the indoor living space and beautifully managed gardens. This brings an exceptional beauty into life.
