A family home or freestanding dwelling is for some, the ultimate dream. To create a space where you feel relaxed, welcomed and safe is unquestionably a top priority for families, as well as couples and individuals.

However, building or buying your first home is a huge investment, and not one to make lightly. You need to decide on your essential requirements, future potential needs, budget and stylistic preferences.

Often single-storey homes are a good option as they provide lower costs, while still offering practicality and liveability. Today we’re going to take a look at 10 new styles you’ll want to see before you buy or build. Let’s check them out below…

1. Modern and timeless

This 3D render shows us exactly what the home might look like if it were built. The cool one-storey white house comes replete with a bright red tiled roof and plenty of charm. Modernised with a large outdoor deck, the beautiful abode is simple, elegant and truly comforting.

2. A cool brick abode

The interesting brick walls of this next home help provide privacy and segregation to certain areas of the house. The thoughtfully landscaped garden softens the stoic brick structure, while boosting a connection to the house’s plot and situation.

3. Mediterranean style

The architect of this dwelling has utilised Mediterranean characteristics to build a house of warmth and uniqueness. Blending nature with the home, the structure aims to evoke a sense of organic unity and cohesion.

4. Open, airy and modern

A modernist dream home, our next property is delicately adorned with glass sliding walls that help provide a sense of continuity with the exterior, while breaking the boundaries between indoors and out.

5. A new take on something old

This next structure takes its cues from traditional barns and farmhouses, but adds a more contemporary approach of gabion walls of stacked stones and an eye-catching zinc roof.

6. The one-storey home with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Think a compact one-storey home can’t accommodate a family? Think again! This gorgeous property boasts 3 decent sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of sleek character.

7. The small white house
