5 bedroom design

After receiving so many requests, as regards what kind of 5-bedroom house plans are recommendable, I’ve decided to write an article on this.

In this article,

I would be presenting five different 5-bedroom plans.

Each of these plans has situations where it is ideal.

In other words, this article was written for a wide audience. So regardless of who you are or what you want, consider spending the next few minutes looking at the plans;

Most people reading would just have interest in plans for a standard 5-bedroom apartment; and you’re not really interested in plans meant for special cases. So if you’re one of such people, this plan “Plan for Standard 5-bedroom Apartment”, is what I’d be recommending.

This plan has got every good thing you’d expect from a standard 5-bedroom plan.

The plan comes with a living room which is quite spacious. The living room is not so big, but it is big enough for the kind of family it’s meant for. But even though the integrated dining and kitchen are close to the living room, we can’t say the living room is integrated with them.The plan features a total of five bedrooms. One of this bedroom is the master bedroom, while another three are meant for members of your family. The last room, which is located at the entrance, is meant for guests.

The plan furthermore accounts from a home theatre.

While some people would appreciate this, we have people who would feel there’s no need for a separate room for watching movies. And if you feel this way, feel free to convert this place into whatever pleases you. You can convert it into a pet room, home office, or something else.

You might also appreciate the way this plan takes studying of kids into consideration. That is, if any of your kids don’t feel comfortable reading inside, they can always study in the study nook.

 

Plan for Small 5-bedroom Apartment

Features

  • Integrated living room, dining and kitchen
  • Visitor sitting room
  • Master bedroom [Walk-in closet, Integrated bathroom & toilet]
  • Four standard bedrooms [Wardrobe]
  • Shared bathroom
  • Shared toilet
  • Alfresco
  • Laundry
  • Two-car garage

 

Pros
  • Ideal for small pieces of land
Cons
  • No visitors toilet

 

Generally, anyone who plans building a 5-bedroom apartment should have a large piece of land.

But at times, we’d find people who don’t have large pieces of land, but would still prefer building a good 5-bedroom apartment. And if you’re one of such people, a plan like this, is what I’d recommend.

The plan is quite simple and designed for small pieces of land. It comes with an integrated living room, dining, and kitchen. This integrated living room, dining, and kitchen, is designed to be the centre of the house. It’s designed in such a way that member of the family would prefer assembling here.

We also like the fact that this plan accounts for a visitors sitting room, despite being designed for small plots of land. But the architect could have done a more impressive job, by finding a way to add a visitors toilet to the plan.

You should note that this plan is one of those taking guest into consideration.

Nothing stops you from converting one of the rooms into a guest room, but it was not necessarily designed for such.

Here in Nigeria,

You’d often come across households where the household is made up of: mum, dad, two/three/four children, and a relative. The relative may be dad’s brother, mum’s brother, grandma, etc. And from time-to-time, dad’s friend, who is based in the United States, would also spend some days in the house, when the friend comes to Nigeria.

If your household is like this or similar to this, this plan is the best for you.

The house is very spacious. It also comes with an outstanding master bedroom design. Out of the other four bedrooms, one of them is meant for your relative. The relative is meant to use the room labelled “#2”. And as you can see, your relative would have their own toilet, giving your relative some privacy.

Two other rooms in the house, room 3 and 4, are expected to be allocated to your kids.

The boys in one of them, and the girls in the other. And the integrated bathroom and toilet in-between these rooms, is meant for your kids.Room 5 is meant for your guest, whoever it may be. And the toilet close to the guest room, is meant for the guest. However, nothing stops visitors from also using the guest toilet.

Imagine this scenario, you’re a middle-aged man.

Your brother and sisters are also grown. And God has been kind enough to keep both of your parents alive, till date. But none of your parents’ children still live with them. However, during Christmas or Eid-el-Kabir, everyone, alongside their wife and kids, come over to grandpa and grandmas [your parents] place to spend the festive period. And if this is the kind of family you have, and the house in meant for grandma and grandpa [your parents], then a plan like this would be very ideal.

Grandpa and grandma are quite old, so it wouldn’t make sense to put them through the stress of walking long distances. In other words, it makes sense that the laundry, garage, and study room, are close to their room.

And when your parents’ children and grandchildren come over your parents’ place, you children and grandchildren can always have the other side of the house to yourselves. The kids can shout as much as they like, without disturbing your parents in their sleep.

 

And when it time for everyone to come together, the integrated living room, dining, and kitchen would be a good place for that. Also, when visitors come around, they can also join you in the integrated living room, dining, and kitchen.

Plan for  5-bedroom duplex apartment

Plan for Standard 5 bedroom Apartment 5 - 5-bedroom House Designs [with Pictures]

Features

  • Living room [upstairs]
  • Integrated dining and kitchen [with sitting area]
  • Home theatre/Media
  • Visitors sitting room
  • Master bedroom [Walk-in closet, Bathroom, Toilet]
  • Three standard bedrooms [Wardrobe]
  • Shared integrated bathroom & toilet
  • Guest room [Wardrobe]
  • Guest and visitors integrated bathroom & toilet
  • Laundry
  • Two-car garage
Pros
  • Impressive design
  • Standard
Cons
  • None

 

I understand there would be people who are not only interested in a 5-bedroom apartment but would also prefer it being a duplex. If you’re one of such people, then this plan is what I’d be recommending you. This plan is just as standard as the first one, but rather than being a bungalow, it’s a duplex.

The plan, of course, accounts for a living room [upstairs]. And this makes sense, since the bedrooms, of members of the family, are also upstairs. In other words, when any member of the family feels like coming outside, they wouldn’t have to use the staircase, before meeting other members of the family.

 

I also think you would appreciate the fact that the guest room featured in this house, is placed downstairs.

This way, your guests would get the chance to poke their nose unnecessarily, into your family affairs. The architect of this plan was also thoughtful enough to put the media room close to the guest room. In other words, if your guest has already spent a number of days in your home, and feels like catching some fun outside their room, they can simply walk into the media room, and watch TV or movie

While the plan also accounts for an Alfresco, implementing it is optional. There are people who love the idea of an Alfresco, and we have those who don’t fancy it. If you like the idea, you can consider implementing it, when building your house.

 

Closing: TL;DR

There are times when I’d have readers who’d find more than one of the above plans to be ideal for them. And as a result, they have a hard time deciding on a particular plan.
