Bungalow House Plans We Love

With their wide, welcoming front porches and open floor plans, bungalow house plans are a more compact version of the Craftsman style. These house designs (usually one or one-and-a-half stories) are warm and inviting with plenty of windows, space-saving built-ins (such as hutches and sideboards), and smart layouts. We’ve rounded up some of our hottest bungalow house plans below.

Front and rear porches make it easy to step outside and enjoy the day.

Bungalow Design with Screened Porch

Home Plan - Ranch Exterior - Front Elevation Plan #929-1094 Plan 929-1094

This bungalow house plan feels surprisingly upscale, from the spacious screened porch in back to the impressive ceiling treatments that draw the eye up throughout the home. Here's a thoughtful touch: the master suite's large walk-in closet opens directly into the laundry room to simplify chores. The third bedroom near the front makes an equally useful study or home office, with doors opening out to the foyer and another to the hallway for greater privacy.
