A two-story floor plans offers living space on stories above ground level. They are ideal for separating the day-to-day living space on the first floor from the bedrooms on the second floor. Modern house plans are now including a first floor master suite in many two story home designs. These plans are designed with flexible options for both entertainment and privacy.

There are many architectural styles that use two-story floor plans: Georgian, Federal, American Foursquare, Farmhouse, and Victorian. These styles provide a wide range of visual appeal and also offer unique standards for interior floor plan layout. A common theme to most multi-story homes is a dramatic staircase to enhance the feel of the home.

Another option available, which is not commonly found in other floor plan types, is large and dramatic ceilings. Many homes offer open areas that soar two stories and, in some cases, rise all the way to the roof line above. Typical rooms found on the first floor include formal dining rooms, formal living rooms, family rooms, and even casual great rooms which combine living-dining-family room areas into one large space.

Many people view homes with two-story floor plans more elegant than a one-floor home. With tall ceilings, two story porches featuring towering columns and the option for large windows, this home style offers a lot to potential home buyers. By stacking the living space, it means that the two story home story can offer more value by reducing foundation and roof costs.

This home style is a great option for growing families, those that entertain frequently, or for those that just want lots of space at a great value.
