DIFFERENCE between DUPLEX House Plans and Single Floor Plans
Real estate provides you with different types of investments and reduces the overall risks associated with each property type. Choosing the right kind of real estate investment is a crucial decision for calculating financial goals.
Two of the most popular type of real estate financial plan available is Duplex House Floor plans and Single floor plans. These two differ in terms of size and space. Duplex is generally for larger families, while single floor plans are well suited for small families.
Duplex is considered a beneficial option when choosing an investment in the city or area that is less populated. Most of the homes in bigger cities are already on the expensive side, and considering the cost involved, it is often possible that a duplex is more costly compared to a single-story home.
Even when it comes to selling an investment, reselling a duplex may take a long time because you may not be able to find people with large families. Many families have started opting for single floor homes because of the small family size and ease of maintenance. Another reason is that duplex involves more cash flow or investment; therefore, it may not be possible to find a suitable buyer straightaway.
Investment in a home is always a reliable investment, but most people choose a small-sized home when choosing a rented real estate property. If you consider the selling price of duplex floor plans, it would definitely be costlier than a single floor plan, mainly because of the more area involved.
However, people choose a duplex floor plan mainly because it provides them more space due to family size and gives you a great feeling of having a bigger home. Also, a duplex can be used as a commercial complex as well.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT (Roi’s):
Deciding which home to choose is always an important call when it comes down to long-term investment and returns on investment. It all comes down to checking the current demand for duplex and single floor plans.
The good idea is to advance the minimum ROI you need and then calculate and compare the capitalization rates of a single floor and duplex homes that you are considering. Most of the time, it is seen that a duplex is better in terms of ROI if you have plenty of money to afford it.
ADVANTAGES OF SINGLE FLOOR HOUSES:
- Single floor plans are accessible for elder, sick, and disabled people as per the amenities required and space included.
- A single floor home also provides you with a good option of natural ventilation and lighting capacity.
- It is easier to approach the terrace in single floor homes.
- Single floor plans can have better architecture compared to multi-storied duplex houses.
- If any existing green trees are not required to be removed during construction, they can also provide effective shade from the sun.
- It can be a better option for single floor plans compared to multi-storied ones. You can even enjoy the climatic conditions in much better ways.
- A single-story home is always a cheaper option if you have any expansion plans. However, if required, you can even resize your single floor homes if required using vertical expansion.
DISADVANTAGES OF SINGLE FLOOR HOMES:
- If the terrace is open, then it can make your home quite hot during summers and even too cold during winters, so basically, you need to face extreme climatic conditions on a single floor.
- If the neighborhood lacks proper height regulation and set back or if the housing pattern is not set, it can result in poor ventilation and lighting.
- The foundations are not planned according to future expansions, which may prove costly if you plan to expand your single floors.
ADVANTAGES OF DUPLEX HOUSE PLANS:
There are various benefits associated with duplex house plans, and some of them are mentioned below.
- One of the biggest advantages of having a double story house plan is that you can easily have the luxury of setting up your home for a bigger family accordingly.
- Duplex provides you with more flexibility to expand your home and even give the upper floor or lower floor for renting purposes.
Better regulation is provided in terms of temperature control by using the terrace effectively. You can shift to any floor according to climatic conditions.
- In the unplanned neighborhood with height and setbacks, duplex houses provide you with a slight advantage of following others’ same pattern.
- One can adjust your floor lighting and ventilation in much better ways.
- Duplex homes can cater to the population in much better ways. It helps save costs of living since more people can be adjusted in a small piece of land. It is a much better option in metropolitan cities where the cost of real estate is extremely high.

- The lower story rooms will be cold during winters. It is hard to manage the difference and judge accordingly.
- Multi-storied homes often block sunlight, and even ventilation is not up to a great extent to lower stories. Therefore it can even lead to further difficulties in living.

VASTU CONSIDERATION for LIVING ROOM, KITCHEN, BEDROOM, MAIN DOOR etc. in Duplex House Designs
Vastu is a science of dwelling homes for humans. It defines the natural way by which different energies such as solar and celestial are balanced to bring more peace and prosperity to the home.
A home constructed on the principles of Vastu gives residents more enjoyment and heavenly bliss in life. Balancing the energies in the House can help you create a better atmosphere and brings more positivity.
One can understand the importance of getting Vastu based Duplex house plans in Bangalore; It again depends on How or How much one needs to consider Vastu while Designing their floor plans. Below are some of the steps.
Duplex Houses are those constructions that have double story designs. Designing duplex homes under the guiding principles of Vastu require spending the time to search regarding the foundation, appearance, and location of every part of your duplex home. A duplex house complete in all respects.
Vastu can bring more PROSPERITY, HAPPINESS, POWER, AND WISDOM in your LIFE…!
Below are some of the directions and shapes that can affect your home design
- A shape of the plot on which construction is performed: Preferred structure types are generally rectangular or square.
- Water Bodies: Bathroom and water tanks must be placed in the north or east end.
- Obstructions: Pillars, trees, open well, and posts must be avoided while constructing a home.
Apart from this, Vastu also doesn’t recommend designing homes or plots in L shape.
Several misconceptions are there when it comes to Vastu, and everyone seems to have a certain opinion about it. To make it easier and simpler, let’s look at the different parts of construction under Vastu.
Before starting the construction of your home, it is important to conduct Bhoomi puja to seek blessings from Gods and ensure that the land is free from any bad omens.
Vastu experts consider performing certain good rituals on the land to be an auspicious beginning to your home. It can be an excellent start to your proceedings.
To bring more optimistic energy and light to your home, it is recommended to position your home to your entrance. Another positive estimation is that sunrise from the east is always in an auspicious direction. Another suitable direction is North East.
When you decide to plan the entrance to your home, you must decide where you want to have a home entrance since it plays an important role. The same applies to door positioning as well.
INFLUENCES OF OTHER DIRECTIONS:
Most Vastu experts do not recommend the southwest direction since it is often related to negative energies. Doors are not recommended to be facing the southeast direction.
South facing doors are also considered to be providing more usher to the sharp energies and therefore may cause disagreements or arguments under Vastu science.
IMPLEMENTING VASTU for KITCHEN LOCATION IN DUPLEX PLAN:
If you plan on building the kitchen in the house plan, then the southeast corner is an ideal location. However, it is a common belief that cooking must be performed while facing the east. Vastu experts also recommend not constructing a kitchen directly in front of the main door of the villa or bungalow.
VASTU considered for MASTER BEDROOMs in MODERN DUPLEX HOMES:
One of the best locations for building master bedrooms is the southwest corner of an east-facing home. Besides building a master bedroom, it is recommended to have a rectangular or square shape of bedrooms, quite similar to your plot’s construction.
One of the prime objectives is to have a home built with the main entrance, bedroom, and kitchen placed in a perfectly placed location so that one can sleep peacefully without any noise.
VASTU of WASHROOM / LAVATORY LOCATION:
Vastu has proper information about the positioning of the bathroom or lavatory. From a general health perspective, many emphases have been kept on your lavatory location in the home. Apart from all directions available, the north-west location is the most suitable location for the toilet.
The other possibility is to construct a lavatory or toilet in the southeast direction. Extra precautions must be taken to not place the home temple room and kitchen exactly in the adjacent location to one another to keep your home free from any negative energy and to keep it healthy.
CIRCULATION IN DUPLEX HOME:
There should be a proper well-designed core to the duplex homes, and there should be a staircase to make the circulation easy.
According to Vastu, it is best to have a staircase in the south-west corner of your duplex home because this direction act as keeping the sun rays away from interiors and act as buffer zones.
WATER STORAGE TANK:
It must be placed in the northeastern direction at the terrace of a duplex home. Plastic material must not be used as a water storage tank, and in case it is plastic, you must keep it a dark color such as blue and black to allow absorption of sun rays and kills bacteria.
It is important to leave more space towards your home’s north and east side compared to the west and sound side. Leaving a space all around the house is always a good option, considered a good Vastu, and this also helps in getting proper ventilation and air circulation.
Vastu also helps advise the orientation and size of a particular structure concerning the surroundings, length, breadth, soil, and plot. It tells you direct proportions and minute details about the buildings and how they must be manufactured.
If you are planning to build your beautiful home, it is better to follow the principles of Vastu. However, proper care must be maintained if you plan your home according to Vastu. Designing in the wrong way or not following the complete Vastu design may make your home unsuitable for living.
Many people consider that Vastu is a superstition, but it has technology associated with it that makes it a proper science of dwelling your home in the best possible manner.
Some illiterate people just vaguely follow any Vastu without consulting an expert. Instead, one must follow suggestions and expertise from a person who has proper knowledge about Vastu.
