4 Reasons why you should choose a bungalow for your next home

There are a lot of decisions when you are selecting a home. After you have narrowed in on your desired community, price point and must-have features, you will also want to consider the home type that is best suited for your family. Townhome, front-attached home, laned home, or bungalow—each home type has different pros and cons depending on your short-term and long term needs.

Here are our top four benefits of choosing a bungalow for your next home: 

1. Open-concept layout

Bungalows offer open-concept floorplans and functional layouts that are ideal for homeowners at any life stage. Many of Genesis Builders Group bungalows offer direct sight-lines from the entryway to the backyard, giving the home a bright and airy feel.

2. Accessibility

One of the biggest benefits of a bungalow is accessibility. With your bedrooms, bathrooms and foyer on the main floor, you can save yourself trips up and down several times a day. This is particularly ideal for downsizers looking for a forever home!

3. Easier to heat and cool

Bungalows offer great airflow during both the hot summer months and cold Alberta winters. This can help you save on your monthly heating bills and keep the air circulating efficiently through your home.

4. Kid-friendly

As a family with young kids who are always on-the-go, stairs can be a real safety concern. Bungalow-style homes allow you to always keep an eye on those busy kids.
