What Should You Choose: A One- and Two-Story Floor Plan?

September 19, 2021

If you are in the market for a new home, the first step is deciding on the location, location, location. Once you have narrowed down the homes in Columbus GA community you would like to live in, the next step is to figure out what kind of home will best meet the needs of your family. There are pros and cons of both a one- and two-story floor plan. Use the tips below to help you decide which floor plan is best for you.

  1. Better accessibility – One-story homes are easier to navigate because everything is located on the same floor. This makes moving in simpler since you do not have to worry about hauling furniture up the steps. Plus, there will be no need to climb the stairs to with kids, toys, luggage, and other items. A single-story home is also easier on the body for older homeowner’s or those with mobility limitations.
  2. Separate quarters – Do you prefer a home with separate living and sleeping quarters? If you do, a two-story home is the best option for creating separate spaces and providing more privacy since single-story living means single-story living. This is great for those with older kids at home, like teenagers or young adults.
  3. Easier to maintain – If you are not a fan of cleaning then a one-story home is a better option. You will not have to haul cleaning supplies, vacuum cleaners, or laundry on a daily or weekly basis. There will be no need to get on a ladder to clean the gutters, pressure wash or clean the windows upstairs.
  4. Special accommodations needed – How do you plan on using your home? Is your family growing or will the in-laws be moving in with you? Are you downsizing? Do you need a home office away from all the action? Will you entertain or host guests often? Answering these questions will also help you decide if a one-story home or a two-story home will best accommodate you.
