1,000 - 1,500 Square Feet Home Designs

Some homeowners realize that living large does not necessarily translate into "bigger is better." America's Best House Plans is delighted to offer some of the industry-leading designs for our collection of 1,000-1,500 sq. ft. house plans. They feature affordable design materials and maximum housing options such as bedroom and bathroom size and number, outdoor living spaces, and a variety of dining and kitchen options.

The variety between 1,001 and 1,500 square foot homes ranges from quaint cottages to practical, yet contemporary starter homes. This might seem like a small footprint to some people, but simply because the square footage isn’t as high as some of the other homes doesn’t mean you’re limited with design choices. When working with 1,500 sq ft house plans, you can get creative with the layout to maximize the space and create a sense of togetherness in the home. 

In fact, many people prefer smaller, 1,500-square-foot house plans for several reasons: the mortgage and insurance are typically lower, the other utilities are cheaper, it takes less to furnish the home, and there’s not as much time spent on the upkeep of the space. It’s a “less is more” aesthetic that adds nothing but beauty to the home. 

Another benefit to homes less than 1,500 square feet is that they are much easier, faster, and cheaper to renovate. If you decide you would like to make over a bathroom, this project may only take a day or weekend, as opposed to weeks in a larger, older home.
