5 bedroom floor plans

by | Aug 14, 2023 | Uncategorized

Sometimes, it’s a case of the bigger the better. If that applies to your family then you’ll need to apply that philosophy to your house plan. Five-bedroom floor plans are a perfect solution for supplying additional bedrooms for growing families and giving home buyers more space. So, let’s think big about 5 bedroom house floor plans. We’ll look at the benefits, examples of plans and more.

What are the benefits of a 5-bedroom floor plan?

More space for larger families

The most obvious appeal of a new five-bedroom home is will provide more accommodation space for you and your family. If you have three or more children or have other relatives who will be living with you, this will help provide every family member with their own space, while still providing plenty of communal areas.

Great for Multi-generational living space

Multigenerational living has risen in popularity in the last few years. While this is an age-old tradition in parts of Asia and Europe, it’s only recently gaining popularity in Australia. This can be attributed to rising house prices, cost of living and a desire for families to be more a part of each other’s lives. Naturally, the more people living under your roof the more space you’ll need. When children grow up and move out, the extra rooms will be great for guests.

Potentially High Resale Value

A larger home in a great location has the potential to sell at a high price on the market. Family homes are in high demand, and this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Combined with a desirable location and some key features, a well-designed five-bedroom house plan has the potential to fetch a bundle on resale.

Lots of versatility

Bedrooms can serve a variety of different purposes other than their namesakes. Whether you want an extra guest room, a study, a storage room or want to room for a growing family, a five-bedroom home offers a lot of options. The larger layout offers the space for other types of rooms including master suites, entertainment rooms, games rooms or whatever type of room you’ve always dreamed of.

Ideal for Luxury Living and quality inclusions

Due to five-bedroom house plans already being more pricey than the average floor plan, a lot of these designs will fall under a home builder’s luxury range. This means your dream home will likely have superior inclusions the best fixtures, fittings and features the builder has to offer. There is a range of options from acreage homes for that country-style feel, or luxury double-storey homes for smaller lots in the city.

Smaller lot of land? Build up

You don’t necessarily need a huge property to have a big house. A double-storey home can have a surprisingly small footprint considering its footprint size. By thinking upwards, you can easily build a larger home on even a narrow block lot.

How much does it cost to build a 5-bedroom house?

Five-bedroom house plans are larger and therefore are going to cost more on average. However, because the category is literally only defined by how many bedrooms are in the floor plan, this leaves a lot of possibilities. For example, a luxury home design will cost more than if you go with a budget design, and a custom design will be pricier than if you choose a pre-existing home.

Prices can range anywhere between 400,000 to over a million depending on how luxurious you go. Remember, this cost does not cover the land itself.

Is a 5 bedroom house plan suitable for me?

Five-bedroom house plans best suit larger families, multi-generational living situations or to accommodate tenants. For a single person, couple or even a smaller family, a five-bedroom will likely be too big.

The key is to consider ongoing maintenance, repairs and costs and whether these are worth it for the extra space. Many people who have a larger home end up selling it down the line once all their children grow up, due to it simply being too much hassle to maintain. The plus side is that if the market is doing well, the money you make from resale could help set you up for retirement.
