The Many Benefits Of A Single Level Home
One of the many decisions to make when building a home: should you build a single level home, or a home with multiple levels? A traditional double storey home often includes living zones on the ground floor and more private areas (bedrooms and studies) on the upper level. While this style has its benefits, the Aston Homes team are here to provide the reasons why a single level home makes the most sense for every stage of life!
Suited To All Ages, All Abilities
A multi-level home can pose quite a challenge to individuals who might rely on a wheelchair, walker or aide for mobility. Stairs? Challenging. Elevator? Pricey! For families with little ones, older ones and people with disabilities, ascending and descending stairs is at best a struggle and at worst impossible and dangerous. Single level homes allow freedom of movement at any age. And, even if you don’t have a little bub or doting grandma in the family right now, you never know what the future holds! Ensure your home is a safe and inviting space for you and your family both today and tomorrow.
Have you ever tried to manoeuvre a vacuum cleaner up (or down) the stairs!? Maintenance is far simpler in a single level home. Even if you’re an active person who doesn’t mind climbing stairs, you’ll likely find it more challenging maintaining both the interior and exterior of your upper level. With a single level home, you’re able to access all areas of the property (including the roof) with a ladder — a definite advantage for gutter clean-outs!
Greater Energy Efficiency
Not only is it easier to heat a single level house, it’s easier to cool one too! This means significantly lower power costs and excellent deeds for the environment. You’ll be pleased to learn that each and every Aston Homes build comes with a 6-Star Energy Rating.
Open Flow of Floorplans
When you choose a single level home, you can select a floorplan that best suits your families lifestyle – even if you’re considering potential growth. Many single level floorplans encourage simple open-plan functionality, contemporary design and increased spaciousness to suit growing families, downsizing retirees or budding couples. Lower level entertaining areas encourage great indoor and outdoor flow, too!
