Top Reasons to Choose 1 Bedroom Houses
If you are facing retirement, or you are a homeowner who is just starting out, you are probably looking at a lot of different options for your home. For many it can be challenging to determine whether or not they want one- or two-bedrooms in their home. So, how can you decide which option is the best for you? Take a look at the benefits of 1 bedroom house plans, and reasons for you to choose one.
Budget-Friendly – One of the biggest draws of one bedroom house plans is that they are much more affordable. This is because they are typically smaller and usually have fewer bathrooms. The less square footage that is needed, the less the home will cost. You can save a lot of money on your mortgage, which you can then either put into your retirement. If you are starting out, you can put it into your savings so, latter you can purchase a larger home
Also, one bedroom house plans will cost less to heat and cool, and will require less electricity. The smaller the home, the less the everyday costs will be. This is definitely something to think about for those who are on a tight budget. Plus, if you select small house plans, you will need less furniture and appliances in the house.
Less Maintenance – 1 bedroom house plans have a small square footage which means the house maintenance will be a lot more manageable. Keeping a smaller home clean is much easier, so you can manage it on your own if you live alone.
No Excess Space that is Wasted – When you build small one story retirement house plans, you are getting just enough house for what you need. There won’t be a lot of excess space, so you don’t need to spending money on unused home areas. One room house plans ensure that you are getting the amount of house that you will use, whether you are a single person or living with your spouse.
Safer for Pets and Grandchildren – One-story one-bedroom homes are safer for children than a home with multiple stories. This is because stairs can be dangerous for young children and babies, as well as smaller pets. If they fall, they can seriously injure themselves. In a smaller home without stairs, you will not have to worry about this. You also won’t have to worry about getting up and down the stairs which becomes problematic as you get older.
If you are considering retiring in a smaller home, or you have a small family and don’t want a lot of extra space, consider 1 bedroom house plans for your new home build. You can still get all the creature comforts you want, without having a ton of extra space you do not need.
