Popular Interior Design Trends in Single-Story Homes
Ranch-style homes take on a distinct aesthetic. These home designs often include an open multifunctional living space—one large space in place of separate areas for formal and casual dining, for example—offering functionality and comfort.
Important living spaces such as the great room and primary bedroom suite are strategically located to add additional privacy while providing visibility to the outdoors.
Toll Brothers single-story or ranch-style homes incorporate high ceilings and natural lighting that enhances both the exterior elevations and the homes’ spacious and airy interior design.
Volume ceiling features in single-story home designs help define any room and create drama for a sophisticated effect.
Home design options such as secondary entrances from the garage with added built-ins and storage options make living easy in a ranch-style home.
Single story floor plans that incorporate various work-from-home spaces are trending as home buyers need more areas to complete daily tasks.
A luxury primary bedroom and bath suite is an essential architectural element incorporated into every Toll Brothers single-story home design. Free-standing bathtubs and larger shower designs with a vanity or seating area are becoming more popular in the primary bath, conveniently located on the first floor.
Laundry rooms that connect to the primary bedroom suite closet create additional convenience and an elevated at-home experience in these single-story floorplans.
Exterior elevations featuring high-end materials and vertical elements provide a stunning curb appeal for these single-story home designs.
Indoor to outdoor living options are trending, especially in single-story home designs.
Home buyers are also looking for more street-facing outdoor living spaces, such as open and covered front porches or courtyards.
