Bungalow House Plans
About Bungalow House Plans & Bungalow Home Floor Plans...The roots of bungalow house plans come from the province of Bengal in India, where a single-family home was referred to as a bangala or bangla. But, these designs became very popular in all regions of the United States in the early 1900s. They were a dramatic response, to the formal Victorian period. Bungalow home plans evolved with the Arts and Crafts movement and are informal, practical, and simplistic in nature. Bungalow house plans are often recognized by their low-pitched roofs, exposed rafters and beams, use of natural materials such as rustic wood and stone, and deep covered porches. Cozy and functional, most bungalow home plans arrange the kitchen, dining area, bedrooms and bathrooms around a central living area. Narrow Lot homes and Craftsman designs are closely related to Bungalow house plans.
Bungalow designs feature open floor plans where rooms connect without hallways and windows fill the interior with natural light. Some of the windows may be made of stained or leaded glass. Bungalow floor plans are commonly one or one-and-a-half stories and often evoke a cottage-like feel. A few notable characteristics of bungalows include shed dormers, tapered porch columns atop stone bases, exposed eave brackets, efficient use of space and abundant woodwork. They showcase handiwork with built-in shelves, cabinets and seats as well as decorative wood trim throughout. When bungalow homes are considered, they come in a variety of styles. Narrow lot bungalow house plans work well on narrow strips of property especially in suburban areas. The Craftsman bungalow got its name at the start of the century because these houses were embellished, decorated and trimmed on the jobsite by the craftsman building them. Beach bungalows are small houses used as a permanent residence or a weekend getaway along the ocean or by the water’s edge. No matter the style, bungalow designs are typically simple and less costly to build making them an excellent choice for a Small and Affordable home. They are free of wasted space and promote a simple lifestyle. The bungalow designs in this collection are generally less than 2000 square feet and deliver relaxed and comfortable living.
