Small House Plans

Simple House Plans & Small Home Designs

Small house plans are usually designs that are less than 2,000 square feet of living area. Our collection of small designs include everything from modest homes economical to build with simple rooflines and basic footprints to luxury homes with lots of elaborate detailing with beautiful entries and spacious decks. A smaller home offers the benefits of efficient living with less square footage to heat and cool lowering your overall maintenance costs. These simple house plans may be smaller in size but have floor plans that use every square inch creatively and usually feel much larger than they really are. Most of these small homes have been built and many include photographs of the built home giving you a thorough perspective.

Small Home Plans – an efficient use of space

small house plans - efficient use of space

Choosing small home designs does not necessarily mean that you should suffer from cramped spaces and unattractive houses. Floor plans for smaller homes can be either modest or luxurious with elaborate detailing. With a good floor concept, smaller homes can feel larger and thus, more comfortable and more efficient.

Some of the design elements that make small home plans feel bigger include:

  • Higher ceilings
  • Minimalistic interiors
  • Open walls
  • Increased diagonal view

Now, one of the most common questions that homeowners ask whenever they are seriously considering small home plans is – How do you arrange furniture pieces to make a room bigger? The answer would be to create a room within the room by not pushing furnishings up against the wall.

Small House Floor Plans: All about Strategic Placements

small house floor plans and strategic placements

With small house floor plans, the rooms are most ideally placed strategically to maximize the space. For example, placing the master suite in the far corner of the house gives it more privacy, while having the other bedrooms on the opposite side improves traffic patterns and frees up the place from clutter. Without walls that divide the family room, kitchen and dining area in small floor plans, owners will have a good sightline as well as a larger space for moving around.

Small simple house plans are perfect for homes in land areas of less than 2,000 square-feet. This means that the primary target market for such home style plans is only great for people who want to be able to keep a closed watch on their children while doing other activities. This also means that open home plans are not for people who like to have dedicated rooms for specific purposes.

Small Floor Plans & Small Home Designs

small floor plans are cheaper to heat, cool, furnish and decorate

major consideration when choosing between big and smaller house floor plans is the budget. However, the cost of building small house plans tends to be more inexpensive than bigger homes. For one, smaller abodes require less materials as well as workers to build. For another, those with small floor plans are cheaper to heat, cool, furnish and decorate. In other words, they are cheaper to maintain or upgrade. Additionally, properties with small home designs often come with lower property taxes, insurance costs and even mortgage, helping owners not lose all of their life savings. All of these mean that people can splurge on other things to make their abodes feel more comfortable, more inviting.

Simple House Plans – Small Designs with a Big Impact

Simple House Plans – Small Designs with a Big Impact

Generally when designing contemporary small home plans, oversized windows, contemporary shapes and modern building materials are used. Meanwhile, it is honestly no surprise that modern houses are said to have a significant lack of historical form or style while commonly seen to retain aesthetics that are almost mechanical. Additionally, modern dwellings with small house designs often have clean lines, open layouts, simple proportions, shallow-pitched or flat roofs, abundant natural light, strong outdoor connections and large expanses of glass. Two of the most beautiful contemporary small home designs in our collection are the contemporary beach house and the Shoalmont with crawl space and slab for foundation.
