It is essential to understand your family size when you plan a double-storey house. Are you going to have your parents along with you? Do you have guests visiting your home regularly? You can talk to your builders about your preferences and make the easy to reach and high traffic rooms downstairs, and you can have separate rooms for your children, friends, and guests at the top. By doing this way, you can enjoy your privacy and enable more space for your guests.

Determine Your Land Size

The space that you have for a double-storey house is one of the factors that take part in the design of your home.  With a double-storey floor plan, you will have more space in the backyard for your children to play and can use your front yard for gardening purposes.  By determining your land size, you can utilise the extra space for your various needs.

Proximity & Cost

Location is an important factor. Also, seek the essential amenities like top schools, hospitals, grocery stores, clinics, and colleges. By having all these at nearby proximity will have a greater value and when you intend to sell, it will go for a higher resale cost. Many would assume that building a double-storey house would be double the cost of a single storey house. Though it is expensive to construct, you can opt for a small lot that is available and consult it with building professionals to reduce the costs wherever possible.
