1 Bedroom Floor Plans
Perfect For A Vacation Retreat or an In-Law Suite
Some homes aim for simplicity, an intimate space to rest for busy people on the go. A one bedroom home may be perfect as a vacation retreat, a small cottage in the woods at a hunting camp or a fishing hut by the sea. Another idea for a one-bedroom home is a garage apartment, the perfect space for an in-law suite or getaway for kids home from college. A studio apartment, per say, with one bedroom, a small kitchen and an open floor plan.
House styles that are fitting for a one-bedroom interpretation are A-Frame, Bungalow, Cottage and Ranch. Architectural elements should be left simple, a vernacular interpretation of high style homes. You may want to build the garage apartment to match the style of the main home to provide a cohesive element on the lot. One bedroom vacation homes could be rustic, built with unfinished natural materials such as stone and cedar shingles that weather to a pleasing gray patina.
This type of house plan works best as an open plan, with a kitchen looking directly into the den, and the bedroom nearby. Some homes such as an A-Frame or cottage may have a loft above to create more space for storage or guests. For additional living space build a deck out back that takes advantage of vacation views. A garage apartment may have a second-story deck that overlooks the rear yard.Similar Collections: A-Frame Vacation Affordable Floor Plans Small Floor Plans
