2 Bedroom Floor Plans

Perfect For Empty Nesters or Young Families

Two bedroom floor plans are perfect for empty nesters or young families buying their first home. There is less upkeep in a smaller home, but two bedrooms still allow enough space for a guestroom, nursery or office depending on your lifestyle. These homes are typically one or two stories and can be designed to accommodate a variety of layouts. One bedroom is typically larger, serving as the master suite for the homeowners. Two bedroom home plans may have the master suite on the main level, with the second bedroom upstairs or on a lower level with a auxilary den and private bath. Alternatively, a one story home will have living space and bedrooms all on one level, providing a house that is accessible and convenient. This may be the best layout for an aging population to avoid excessive staircases and to ease the burden of upkeep.

Many house styles can be built as a two bedroom home, but the most suitable would be Ranch, Cape Cod, Bungalow, Cottage and Tidewater. These style of homes tend to have a smaller floor plan with less square footage. The exterior can be designed with charming details to accentuate the smaller scale home, such as a front portico or entry porch. Add shutters, dormers, decorative stonework or shingles to present a welcoming façade.

Many vacation homes would also work well with a two bedroom plan, a smaller home to retreat to with less routine maintenance required. Place one bedroom on the main level and build a second story loft to house the other bedroom, or utilize attic space with dormers to create a cozy refuge for children. Outdoor living space will make two bedroom homes feel larger, as a rear deck or porch will be an extension of the home for entertaining and relaxation.
