When you are looking for the right house for your needs, there are a lot of things to consider.

While it’s hard to plan exactly what you will need in the future, you can get a lot of bang for your buck with 2 bedroom 2 bath house plans.

Depending on the size of your lot and the other rooms in the home, this number of bedrooms and number of baths can have a wide range of square footage. With a spread-out floor plan and massive rooms, the size could be well over 2000 square feet. If you’re on the hunt for a more modest size of home, you can find a large number of 2 bedroom house plans under 1500 sq ft. This is pretty much the sweet spot for getting enough room to meet your needs, without getting too much house that you won’t use and don’t want to take care of.

Benefits of 2 Bedroom House Plans

There are different types of living situations that work well with small 2 bedroom house plans. All of these family types can benefit from this size of home:

  • Single people living alone – you’ll have a bedroom and a bathroom for yourself, as well as a spare bed and bath for guests.

  • Couples without children – you’ll also have a bedroom to yourself, as well as a master bathroom. Any guests will be able to use the spare bedroom and the extra bathroom.

  • Couples with one child – everyone gets a room and a bathroom.

  • Couples with two children – the children will share a room and a bathroom, and the couple will have a master bedroom and master bathroom.

  • Two singles living together – each will get a bedroom and bathroom to themselves.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that 2 bedroom 2 bath house plans can work for your particular living situation. Having two bedrooms offers a number of options, and two baths ensures that there is always an extra bathroom for guests to use. There are a number of other benefits to this sort of layout. These include:

  • Budget-friendly – typically, the more bedrooms and bathrooms there are in a home, the more expensive it will be. If you choose a home of around 1500 sq. ft. and up to 2000 sq. ft., you’ll be in a good price range that’s not too expensive. Heating and cooling for a home this size can be manageable and far less expensive than larger homes with more bedrooms. Also, you’ll only have two bedrooms and two bathrooms to decorate, so you won’t have to buy as much furniture as you would if you had more bedrooms.

  • Manageable maintenance – with just two bedrooms and two bathrooms to care for, your everyday maintenance will be easy to manage. You won’t have to clean as many rooms or bathrooms, and so you can stay on top of it to keep your house in tip-top shape. Upgrades won’t be as expensive because the square footage isn’t as high as the average home size in the US.

When you’re shopping around for home plans, consider 2 bedroom house plans with open floor plan layout, and you’ll get just enough room without going overboard.
