Choosing your Home

Three Bedroom Home Designs

Three-bedroom homes are now the most popular house configuration in Australia, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This average home size has been decreasing in Australia steadily over the last decade as Australians opt for the benefits of downsized living.

A three-bedroom house offers home buyers a manageable home size and is great for couples, small families or first homes. Although three bedrooms may seem like downsizing, this size can be more affordable to maintain and provide a compact living arrangement with all you need and nothing more. 

Advantages of Three Bedroom Homes

More Affordable  to build & maintain

Homes of a smaller size are often more affordable to build and maintain, requiring fewer materials and less care. Beyond the construction costs usually being less than larger homes, three-bedroom homes offer the added advantage of providing a lower energy bill as well as reducing your carbon footprint. Moreover, a small size home will often provide you with closer proximity to urban centres. 

Beyond construction and function, you can expect three-bedroom homes to provide a lower cost of maintenance. With less space, you’re looking to reduce the time spent cleaning and the costs of upkeep. 

Effective Use of Space

With any home, the square footage and design will ultimately determine the size it feels, regardless of the number of bedrooms. Fewer bedrooms provide you with more space for open-plan living areas as well as other communal spaces. 

When designed expertly, a 3-bedroom home can provide the right expansive living spaces for your family whilst ensuring rooms don’t go unused. This considered and efficient use of space lets you prioritise your life and provides you with a happier home. 

A downsized home equates to an upsized experience, as you effectively use space and don’t invest in living spaces that will go unused. Downsizing into a smaller home will help you prioritise your life and only bring what is necessary to your home.

Single Floor 3 Bedroom House Plans

A single-storey 3-bedroom house lets you enjoy the compactness of a downsized home sprawled over a single floor. Single-storey homes are perfect for home buyers intending to age in place and those looking for a quieter home without overhead footsteps.
