The bungalow house design is known as the quintessential house not only in the Philippines but throughout the entire world.  This isn’t really surprising since the design has been around since at least the late 17th century. And in an age where people tend to gravitate towards bigger and more elaborate family home designs, one might think that the bungalow house design might be out of style. But you can trust me when I say that this classic design will continue to withstand the test of time and have its merits.


What Are the Benefits of a Bungalow?

Lower Construction and Maintenance Costs

This is perhaps the first and foremost benefit that can make a bungalow house design attractive to a first time home buyer and/or a homebuyer on a budget, since this style of house is smaller in terms of floor space.

Family Friendly

Having only one floor and an open floor plan means that the bungalow makes an excellent family home. For starters, everything is easier to access, for both children and senior citizens and really young kids alike, and assuming you plan everything out correctly with the help of a good house construction company, a bungalow can be extremely safe, especially against fall damage.


Deceptively Spacious Yards

House construction companies typically build bungalows on larger lots to accommodate their wider floor plans. This means that while interior space is rather cozy, the outdoor yards tend to be rather spacious, which means they are good for energetic children (both humans and fur babies) they also allow for you to nurture your green thumb and your connection with nature



The bungalow’s low profile design can allow for ample privacy.  It is best to consult with your construction company to strategically design privacy measures, especially in the Philippines wherein there exists a prevalent culture of gossip.

Great Resale Value

In this day and age where good housing is getting increasingly difficult to find and afford, a bungalow makes a great real-estate investment as there is always an abundance of first-time home buyers, families with young and energetic children and/or fur babies, and senior citizens who are looking to downsize.


In conclusion: The bungalow is by no means an obsolete family home design even in an age where people think “bigger is better”. The bungalow house design will continue to have a place not just in the Philippines but globally as well.
