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.
Three-Bedroom House Design
Hello curb appeal! This bungalow house plan gives you three bedrooms, two baths, an open layout, a kitchen island, decorative ceilings, and a mudroom with lockers. Tucked away on the right side of the floor plan, the spacious master suite enjoys plenty of privacy, while two additional bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the left side of the home. Front and rear porches make it easy to step outside and enjoy the day.

Bungalow Design with Screened Porch
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.
Compact Bungalow House Plan
Designed for tight lots, this home design packs a world of amenities into a compact Craftsman bungalow-inspired design. It includes a flexible office/bedroom with full bath (and an extra vanity so it functions as the powder room even when the office is occupied) and a handy mudroom/laundry.
The open floor plan connects to a rear patio and screened porch – perfect for relaxing outside. Both the living room and screened porch feature cozy fireplaces. The master suite and another bedroom suite reside upstairs (along with a convenient office/reading space that would also work as a nursery).
Bungalow Design with Storage Options
Here’s a warm and welcoming bungalow house plan that makes the most of its small footprint. You'll love the open floor plan that make this home design feel bigger than it actually is. A built-in guest bed and shelves maximize space and storage options. Front and rear porches lend plenty of outdoor space and extended living.
Eye-Catching Bungalow House Design
This handsome bungalow house plan features a wide covered porch and eye-catching vertical siding on the exterior, while inside offers a perfectly balanced layout. Relax by the fire in the great room, or grab a bite at the kitchen's snack-bar island.
Decorative ceiling treatments top the dining room and master suite, which also boasts dual walk-in closets and easy access to the laundry room. Two additional bedrooms (with walk-in closets) share a full bath on the other side of the floor plan. An optional bonus room adds versatility and can be finished later depending on your needs.
Bungalow House Plan with Large Great Room
This inviting bungalow home design offers many popular features that are typically included in much larger homes. For starters, owners will enjoy the isolated master suite (which includes a separate shower, large walk-in closet, and dual lavatories) located at the rear of the plan. A utility room includes plenty of space for storing/folding clothing and other goods.
The expansive great room features a built-in entertainment center and easy access to the dining room and kitchen. Need more room? A flex space can be used as a home office, storage space, or small guest room. The large kitchen features a raised bar for casual meals.
Bungalow Style with Front Porch
This house design is all about convenience and relaxation. The open floor plan between the main living areas and smart features (such as the mudroom and large kitchen island) make the hustle and bustle of everyday life easier for busy homeowners.
A vast rear deck and wide front porch deliver a relaxed attitude and make outdoor entertaining a breeze. Bring on the porch hangs!
Bungalow House Design with Open Floor Plan
Form and function blend wonderfully together in this bungalow house plan. To maximize space, the foyer, great room, dining room, and kitchen are completely open to one another. A cathedral ceiling spans the great room and kitchen, expanding the rooms vertically.
The bedrooms are split for ultimate master suite privacy. A bonus room, accessed near the master suite, offers options for storage and expansion. Two family bedrooms and a hall bath are located on the opposite of the floor plan.
Cool House Plan with Luxurious Master Suite
This cool house plan is loaded with amenities (like tall ceilings and a luxurious master suite with dual walk-in-closets). Overlapping gables make a strong statement, while the front porch is topped with a standing seam metal roof.
Inside, an open floor plan provides seamless flow. The generous island kitchen (with an attached pantry) makes it easy to prepare meals. The spacious great room offers a fireplace and sliding glass doors that open up to the covered lanai.
